Fortnite Battle Royale‘s Season 9, Week 6 challenges have been leaked ahead of schedule and if you’re wanting to get ahead of the game, you have certainly came to the right place. 

The leaked list, which is expected to go live on June 13, has been revealed dataminer by Lucas7Yoshi. As ever, there are three free tasks that all players will have access to, as well as a further four challenges for Season 9 Battle Pass owners to enjoy. 

It’s worth noting that these challenges aren’t official and, of course, could be subject to change as the information of the leak is not confirmed just yet.

Epic GamesFortnite Battle Royale’s Hot Spot locations vary from game to game, but players will need to find them for the Week 6 challenges.

Nevertheless, these challenges will push fans to try out the new Storm Flip feature, which was added in the v9.20 update on June 6. The new item allows players to create sphere shaped domes that can create safe zones inside the storm, or a mini storm inside what would usually be a safe area. 

Storm Flips are only one part of the leaked tasks. If the datamine is to be believed, those looking to complete all of the challenges are going to have to venture across the map to a number of different locations too, in order to find Hot Spots. 

Near Hot Spot locations, players will have to eliminate opponents, open chests, and search through ammo boxes in order to complete Week 6. 

So, without further ado, let’s show you all of the different missions that you will possibly have the opportunity to undertake on June 13.

Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
