Week 5 of Fortnite Season 4 is upon us and that means new challenges are now available to help boost your experience gains faster than anything else.

Completing challenges in Fortnite is by far the most effective way of racking up XP in the battle royale. Whether it’s the weekly objectives or secret tasks, there are plenty of unique activities to tick off each and every time you login.

Most are trying to blitz their way through the Season 4 Battle Pass to unlock the best cosmetics. Though there’s even more to push for once you’ve hit the cap this time around. Ultra rare ‘foil’ skins are the hottest commodity in the Marvel-themed leg of Fortnite and you’ll need every scrap of XP you can get.

The latest challenges have just made their way to Fortnite and this time there are nine to complete. Here’s everything you need to know.

Searching chests should barely take a minute to tick off.

As per usual, you can expect to travel all across the map in order to complete the challenges in Week 5. From Doom’s Domain to Stark Industries, you’ll be dropping in at a number of locations. Thankfully, you should be able to rush through many of these areas without much hassle.

Some challenges are as simple as opening chests. Others ask you to deal a certain amount of damage at other Points of Interest. A few minutes should be all that’s needed before you can set out towards the next objective.

Some of them can be a little more time consuming though. For one particular challenge this week, you’ll need to get your hands on the fastest car you can find. Driving a long distance is never easy given how many opponents are on the map. So you’ll need to avoid damage at all costs when driving from Slurpy Swamp to Catty Corner.

While still in a vehicle, another challenge asks you to jump through flaming rings at Salty Springs as well. These are easy enough to spot, but expect this to be a hot area over the next seven days. Check out the full list of challenges below.

  • Search Chests at Doom’s Domain (0/7)
  • Eliminations at Dirty Docks (0/3)

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.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
