It’s been six weeks since Fortnite Season 3 started. Seems like a while ago, doesn’t it? Well, there’s still plenty of grinding on the horizon if you want to max out your battle pass, and this week’s missions are some of the easiest ones yet.

Every week, Epic releases new Fortnite missions to players to help them complete the Season 3 battle pass. From venturing to new areas of the map, to using new mechanics introduced after the major update, the types of missions vary from week to week.

In Week 6 though, there’s been some major changes. Some popular missions have been left out, being replaced by more simpler tasks. This is good for the grind, but could make things a bit dull overall.

Epic has done away with challenges concerning Whirlpools and Floating Rings for Week 6, changing things up. Those two objectives have proven to be problematic, with bugs and glitches galore plaguing players’ progress on those missions in previous weeks.

Here’s the full list of Fortnite missions for Week 6, courtesy of dataminer ‘iFireMonkey’:

  • Deal Damage at Rickety Rig (500)
  • Eliminations at Pleasant Park (3)
  • Land at the Authority and finish Top 25 (1)
  • Gas up a Vehicle at Catty Corner (1)
  • Catch a weapon at Stack Shack (1)
  • Search Chests (10)
  • Search Chests (100)
  • Search Ammo Boxes at Salty Springs (7)
  • Search Chests at Lazy Lake (7)

Each of these missions will net you 35,000 XP ⁠— except for the 100 Chests mission, which is worth a whopping 80,000 XP. If you’ve been struggling in completing your battle pass, this will be a nice surprise.

On top of the missions, there are also new 14 coins on the map. They’re dotted around various locations, so be sure to find them all for an extra 80,000 XP.

When will the Week 6 challenges expire in Fortnite?

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 6 challenges will be activated on July 23, and you’ll have until next Wednesday, July 29, to complete them.

There will be no opportunities to finish them off down the line, so be sure to fit in a few games this week so you can try and get closer to finishing off your pass.


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.
