Epic Games has finally released Fortnite’s long-awaited Chapter 2, Season 3 on June 17, and with it comes a brand new set of weekly set of challenges for players to complete.

After multiple delays were announced for Season 3, which was initially scheduled to be released on April 30, fans of the battle royale have been eager to drop in following the latest update.

The mysterious Device finally sprung into action on June 17, bringing many new changes to the Fortnite in Season 3, such as flooding the island and adding some more challenges for players to sink their teeth into.

There were many new changes made to Fortnite’s map in Season 3.

There are only seven weekly tasks available in Week 1, compared to the ten-a-week challenge sets that Epic has implemented in past seasons.

Many of Fortnite’s week 1 challenges are fairly straightforward, such as the opening chests and ammo boxes or finding eliminations, however, there are some that are tailored towards the latest changes.

New ‘Loot Sharks’ have been added in Season 3 that you will need to shoot in the water, you’ll need to enter the new vault at Catty Corner after getting the keycard off Kit, and you will also need to find some hidden Gnomes, which are scattered around the Homely Hills. You can find the full list of Fortnite’s Week 1 challenges below.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 3 Week 1 challenges

  • Damage Loot Sharks at Sweaty Sands (200)
  • Deal damage within 10s of landing from the whirlpool at Hydro 16 (1)
  • Enter Catty Corner Vault (1)
  • Find Gnomes at Homely Hills (3)
  • Search chests or ammo boxes at Rickety Rig (7)
  • Land at Misty Meadows and finish top 25 (1)
  • Eliminations at Steamy Stacks (3)

As usual, completing each of these challenges will help players progress through the season quicker, with 35,000 XP available as a reward for each one of these weekly tasks.

While Fortnite’s headquarters in The Agency has now been replaced, following its destruction in the end-of-season event, the weekly challenge board is still accessible in-game.

Fortnite fans can also work towards unlocking a brand-new Aquaman skin, which matches the theme for the flooded map in Season 3, as players will need to complete another weekly challenge to unlock the popular DC superhero.

Although the weekly challenges are typically released on a Thursday, following Epic Games’ release of the new season on Wednesday, June 17, we might see these weekly tasks releasing a day earlier throughout Season 3.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
