How to complete Fortnite Open Water mission week 2 challenges

David Purcell

Epic Games have activated the Open Water challenges in Fortnite Chapter 2 and if you’re looking to complete them, you have came to the right place. 

Missions are going to be released on a weekly basis on Fortnite and while the days in which they have been activated have been shifted around a fair bit in the past, it seems like Thursday is going to be the day to look out for them in Chapter 2, Season 1. 

Those who have jumped from the Battle Bus since the start of the new season will know that there’s a lot more water, and options to interact with the water as well, since the patch went live. This includes new swimming features, the introduction of boats, fishing and more. 

Epic GamesEpic Games have added tons of new water features in Fortnite, including motorboat vehicles.

With this set of missions being called the ‘Open Water’ set, it might come as a surprise to see that players are not really going to have to use any of those new water features in order to check off all of the tasks this week. 

By completing eight of these challenges, you will unlock a brand new ‘Open Water’ loading screen which shows a character fishing – as seen below.

So, let’s take a look at what you need to do in order to complete this week’s set of missions.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Open Water challenges:

  • Land at Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs, and Dirty Docks (x1)
  • Hide inside Hideouts in different matches (x3)
  • Search Chests at Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows (x7)
  • Eliminate opponents with a Sniper Rifle (x2)
  • Be crouched within 20m of an opponent for a total of 10 seconds (x10)
  • Deal damage with Pistols to opponents (x500)
  • Search Ammo Boxes in a single match (x7)
  • Get an elimination from 50m or further (x1)
  • Survive Storm phases (x10)
  • Deal damage within 10 seconds of leaving a Hideout (x150)
  • Search hidden ‘O’ found in the Open Water Loading Screen (x1)

These hidden letters have replaced the hidden battle stars and banners of previous seasons. Find them all and you will unlock a brand new mystery skin.
