Fortnite Week 9 is officially here and as always, fans of the popular battle royale game have a brand-new set of challenges to sink their teeth into as they rank up their Battle Pass and unlock special cosmetic rewards. 

It’s been a quiet week for Fortnite on the update front with no new patch this week, but we still have plenty to focus on as we get to grips with the new vehicles that were added in the 13.40 update on August 5, which can be used to make easy rotations around the island, or just mow down enemies en-route to a Victory Royale.


Of course, a new week means new challenges, and Epic are set to add 7 tasks for us to take on, with vehicles once again playing a part, along with the Henchmen that patrol locations across the map, and the pesky Marauders who can appear anywhere.

Fortnite’s new vehicles play a part in the Week 9 challenges.

Like most Season 3 challenges, most of this week’s offerings are fairly straightforward but will see you travel across the island to hit some of the named locations dotted around the map. You will need to open seven chests at Pleasant Park and take down three enemy players at The Fortilla. You’ll also need to gas up a vehicle at Catty Corner, while your harvesting tool will be important at Hydro 16, where you need to collect 200 metal.


Elsewhere, you’ll need to find some Henchman or Marauders and start slaying out, as you need to eliminate seven, and then 70 of the characters to complete the two final challenges. The easiest way to complete this is probably to head to The Authority and take down the Henchman who patrol the location but will likely take a number of visits to hit that massive 70 number. The good news is that it is a team challenge, so you can rope in some friends to give you a helping hand. You can view the Season 3, Week 9 challenges below.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3, Week 9 challenges

  • Search Chests at Pleasant Park (7)
  • Eliminations at The Fortilla (3)
  • Gas up a Vehicle at Catty Corner (1)
  • Stoke Campfires at Camp Cod (3)
  • Collect Metal at Hydro 16 (200)
  • Eliminate Henchmen or Marauders (7)
  • Eliminate Henchmen or Marauders (70)

Completing these challenges are well worth the effort if you’re in the process of leveling up your Battle Pass, as each task completed offers 35,000 XP towards your next skin or cosmetic item while completing the difficult team challenge will give you a massive 80,000 XP as a reward for your hard work.

The Fortnite Season 3 Week 9 challenges are set to go live today on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices, so jump into the action and start taking down Henchmen for those sweet XP rewards.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
