Fortnite’s Week 6 is in full swing, which means fans of the popular battle royale title have another new list of challenges to sink their teeth into in the form of the second Meowscles’ Mischief set.

Season 2, Week 6 kicked off with the 12.21 Update, which introduced a brand-new Knockout LTM and the Awaken Oro challenges which are available to anyone who purchases the mysterious skeleton king from the game’s built-in Item Shop.

Now, Meowscles is back again for his second week of challenges on Thursday, March 26, with 10 more tasks for players to attempt to complete while they chase Victory Royales on the battle royale title.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 is all about special agents, with the tagline of Top Secret adding two factions to the game Ghost or Shadow that players choose to represent when they purchase the season’s Battle Pass. Special secret agent characters have also been added to the game, with each one getting their own challenge set throughout Season 2, with Brutus and TNTina getting two weeks each.

March 26 sees the start of Meowscles’ second week, and as always, players will have plenty of traveling to do, needing to open 10 Chests at either Frenzy Farm or Steamy Stacks, and eliminate opponents at The Yacht or Salty Springs.

Fortnite fans will also need to keep their eyes peeled for dog houses which will need to be destroyed, and make use of one of the game’s newest items in the Decoy Grenade, which will have to block 100 damage points to complete the eighth task. Choppas will also be needed, as dealing damage while sitting in one makes up another challenge, while fishing is also on the agenda, requiring a weapon, a can, and a fish to be pulled out of the water. You can view the full list of challenges below.

  • Search 10 Chests at Frenzy Farm or Steamy Stacks
  • Deal 1000 damage to players using Assault Rifles
  • Search 10 Chests within 10 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus

  • Destroy three dog houses
  • Block 100 damage with a Decoy Grenade
  • Dance at Lake Canoe, Camp Cod, and Rainbow Rentals
  • Ride the Steamy Stacks, a Zipline, and use a secret passage in a single match

Every completed challenge will offer 40,000 XP as a reward, which will go a long way to helping players complete their Season 2 Battle Pass, and unlock cosmetic rewards to kit out their Fortnite character as they jump out of the Battle Bus and into the action.

There’s also another Deadpool challenge scheduled to release alongside Meowscles Mischief, which will help Fortnite fans take another step towards unlocking the fan-favorite Marvel character’s skin.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
