The official challenges for Week 9 of Season 5 have gone live in Fortnite Battle Royale and are now available to play in all regions.

Usually released on a Thursday, this week’s challenges were delayed by 24 hours due to some issues that meant the V5.40 patch didn’t go live until September 6.

As has been the case throughout Season 5, the Week 9 challenges include three that are free for all users to complete and four that are only open to owners of the Battle Pass.

Once again we see a “Stage” challenge. Introduced shortly after the halfway point in the season, the stage challenges require you to complete objectives in various different locations – this week, you need to open chests in various places of interest, beginning at Haunted Hills.

The full list of Week 9, Season 5 challenges is as follows:

FREE PASS CHALLENGES

  • Deal damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents (500)
  • Get trick points in a Shopping Cart or ATK (All Terrain Kart) (1)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts (1) – HARD

BATTLE PASS CHALLENGES

  • Stage 1: Search a Chest in Haunted Hills (1)
    Stage 2: Search a chest in Shift Shafts (1)
    Stage 3: Search a chest in Lazy Links (1)
    Stage 4: Search a chest in Tilted Towers (1)
    Stage 5: Search a chest in Risky Reels (1)
  • Visit Different Stone Heads (7)
  • Assault Rifle Eliminations (5) – HARD
  • Eliminate opponents in Tomato Temple (2) – HARD

The “HARD” challenges will grant you twice as much XP as the standard ones but should still be relatively easy to complete.

As always, keep an eye out for our various challenge guides if you’re struggling to complete any of this week’s tasks.

If the seven weekly challenges aren’t enough for you, you can also try your hand at completing the High Stakes challenges that went live on September 6 as part of the High Stakes event.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.
