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.


Fortnite tease exclusive new Drift Crew skin with Fox Clan hints

The official Fortnite Twitter account started the hype train for the game’s next Fortnite Crew release by changing their avatar and issuing cryptic tweets about ‘Fox Clan,’ and fans are already speculating on when the next big surprise might arrive.

Fortnite has a long history of using in-game and social media teasers to hype up the BR’s future content. Whether teasing some new skins or a complete rework of the game’s universe, Epic Games is no stranger when it comes to feeding players a slow drip of hints to build up the hype.

With Chapter 2 Season 5 well underway, players have already been treated to special events like Terminator and Predator crossovers. However, Season 5 doesn’t end until March 15 and players are already looking for clues on what the season’s next content drop might include.

On January 24, Fortnite’s official Twitter account changed its avatar and tweeted out two mysterious hints linked to the game’s next big reveal. The community quickly flooded Twitter to discuss what these new teasers might mean for the February Fortnite Crew release.

Fortnite Drift Crew Pack Skin HYPEX Leak

Fortnite data miner HYPEX revealed the game’s new teasers are related to an upcoming Fortnite Crew skin for Drift.

The first tweet referenced establishing a connection and beginning a scan, which didn’t give fans much to go off of. However, the second part had some important implications, and included a reference to one of the games most iconic characters: Drift.

“Drift? Drift. Come in. Do you read me?” the last sentence read. Drift was originally introduced in Fortnite’s first Season 5, and was loved by players for his unique kitsune appearance and skins (kitsune means fox in Japanese, and these creatures often appear in Japanese folklore).

The second tweet issued a cryptic warning: “I know you don’t know who I am, but the Fox Clan is in trouble. We need you.” Fox Clan is something completely new to Fortnite, but it appeared to tie in with Drift’s previous in-game aesthetic and the account’s updated avatar.

Fortnite data miner HYPEX also believed the teasers are related to Drift. The leaker shared an image of an unreleased Drift skin – which appeared to be a female version of the previously-male character – and confirmed the skin will be included in the February edition of the Fortnite Crew subscription.

Fortnite Crew – Epic’s monthly subscription model – nets players each new battle pass and 1,000 V-bucks every season, along with Crew Packs that include an exclusive outfit and matching accessory. HYPEX confirmed that the teased Drift skin will be tied to an upcoming Crew Pack.

So far, Epic Games has not revealed any additional clues other than the two mysterious tweets. While new information will continue to be discovered by HYPEX and other data miners, no additional clues have been posted at the time of writing.

Fortnite fans will need to wait for confirmation on exactly what Epic has planned for the February Crew Pack. We will make sure to keep you updated as any new information is revealed at Fortnite Intel on Twitter.
