The Week 9 challenges are now available in Fortnite, as players can embark on the first part of the Midas’ Mission set, which will eventually unlock Midas’ skin styles.

Although this was meant to be the penultimate week of Season 2, it has now been extended, meaning Week 10 won’t be the last week after all.


Instead, the Season is now ending in June, and there will be extra challenges added each week to fill the gaps. However, the two-part Midas’ Mission challenges are still coming in Week 9 and 10.

That means the first part is now available to complete in-game. Most of the tasks are fairly straight forward, but there are few which will require some more time to complete.


Fortnite Week 9 Midas’ Mission Challenges

  • Search Chests in different Named Locations (5)
  • Deal damage to players with Sniper Rifles (300)
  • Upgrade a weapon to Legendary rarity at an Upgrade Bench (1)
  • Search a Llama, Legendary Chest, or Supply Drop (1)
  • Deal damage to a Choppa with a passenger or pilot inside (100)
  • Collect XP coins (5)
  • Carry a giant pink teddy bear found in Risky Reels 100 meters (100)
  • Search Midas’ golden llama between a junk yard, gas station, and an RV campsite (1)
  • Gather Intel during Spy Games Operation matches (10)
  • Earn Survival, Combat, or Scavenger Gold Medals (1)

Each of these challenges will reward you with a healthy 40,000 XP. For some of the trickier challenges, here’s how to complete them:

To Collect XP coins: You’ll find these dotted all over the map, so your best bet is just to play the game as normal and you should stumble across more than enough to get your five.

Find a giant pink teddy bear: The challenge name gives this one away – all the teddy bears can be found in Risky Reels, you’ll simply need to carry them 100 meters.


Finding Midas’ golden llama: You’ll find the golden llama just on the edge of the river, directly south of the RV campsite.

The Golden Llama is directly south of the RV camp.

In addition to the 40,000 XP per challenge, you’ll also get the option to unlock either the Ghost or Shadow style of the Midas skin after completing 18 challenges.

Of course, that means you’ll need to wait until next week when the next 10 challenges for part 2 go live, but it’s still recommended to get all 10 of this week’s tasks done.

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)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

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.
