Fortnite Season 4 has finally arrived meaning an all-new Battle Pass full of items to unlock. There’s no better way to tally up your experience for these items than to grind through weekly challenges, and we’ve got you covered with everything from the first batch.

The latest season in Fortnite is bringing both heroes and villains from Marvel lore together in order to stop one common threat. Galactus is fast approaching, and it’s up to these iconic characters to help save the battle royale map.


You can unlock and play as eight of these popular Marvel figures through the new Season 4 Battle Pass. From Iron Man to Groot, and even X-Men’s very own Wolverine, there’s plenty of characters you’ll want to unlock.

On top of earning XP through wins and eliminations, your best bet to quickly get through the 100 tiers of content is by completing challenges. While an assortment of secret challenges on the map can help, weekly objectives will always be the best way to guarantee huge XP gains. Here’s what you need to know for the first week in Season 4.


Given that it’s an all-new season, many of the objectives this week will have you focusing on fresh tasks. Whether it’s taking down new enemies or using new weapons, expect some unfamiliar experiences as you progress through the list.

Completing all eight of the weekly challenges will provide a whopping 225,000 XP to kickstart your Battle Pass. Seven of which provide 25k, while one more difficult objective will hand you a bonus 50k experience. 

Some of the tasks are as simple as ever. Searching chests at Dirty Docks can be blitzed through in a matter of seconds. The same can be said for dealing damage or securing eliminations. These are fairly standard as far as Fortnite challenges go.


However, things ramp up this time around with some peculiar tasks. You’ll have to use the new Stark Industry Energy Rifle for one of the challenges. Another will see you taking on Doctor Doom at a new POI on the map. Expect some tough battles as you push for these huge XP gains early on.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 1 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Dirty Docks (7): 25,000 XP
  • Eliminations at Holly Hedges (3): 25,000 XP
  • Collect Floating Rings at Misty Meadows (1): 25,000 XP
  • Eliminate Stark Robots at Quinjet Patrol landing sites (5): 25,000 XP
  • Gas a vehicle up at Lazy Lakes (1): 25,000 XP
  • Deal damage to opponents with Stark Industries Energy Rifles (1,000): 25,000 XP
  • Eliminate Doctor Doom at Doom’s Domain (3): 50,000 XP
  • Deal damage to opponents at Craggy Cliffs (500): 25,000 XP

You’ll need to be prepared for battle as you visit Doom’s Domain.

While the season is just getting started, you should be able to knock these challenges off in just a few hours at most. Many will come naturally as you explore the new offerings in Season 4, but others might take some teamwork to overcome.

If you need any more incentive to get the first weekly batch out of the way, take a look at all 100-tiers available in the Season 4 Nexus War Battle Pass.

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.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
