If you’re looking to quickly rank up your Season 3 Battle Pass, the latest batch of weekly Fortnite challenges have arrived. Here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite’s third major Season in Chapter Two went live on June 17. Since then, players have been growing familiar with all-new weapons and a host of map changes to boot. As always, experience gains are crucial as everyone looks to rank up their Battle Pass as fast as possible.

Completing in-game challenges is often the most efficient way to rank up and fortunately, there’s always a new list right around the corner. Week 3’s objectives have been plucked from the June 29 v13.20 update and we’ve got you covered with a full rundown.

Eight new challenges are available and each will provide 35,000XP upon completion. As per usual, you’ll be able to smash through most of them in no time at all. Collecting 280,000XP in just a few games.

There’s a crane at Rickety Rig. You’ll need to dance on top of it this week.


All Fortnite Season 3 Week 3 challenges:

  • Search Chests or Ammo Boxes at Misty Meadows (x7)
  • Eliminations at The Authority (x3)
  • Collect Floating Rings at Lazy lake (x4)
  • Dance on top of the Crane at Rickety Rig (x1)
  • Deal damage from inside a cornfield at Frenzy Farm (x100)
  • Destroy cars within 60 seconds of landing at Retail Row from the Battle Bus (x2)
  • Land a Choppa at the bottom of Steamy Stacks (x1)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Catty Corner (x200)

Searching seven chests and ammo boxes at Misty Meadows can be knocked off the very first time you land in Week 3. You can instantly jump straight into another match to destroy cars at Retail Row as well. From here on out, each challenge will have you focusing on a unique section of the map.

Some tasks require a set amount of damage or eliminations while others will have you dancing. They’re all rather simple tasks that you should be able to tick off without much difficulty.

Perhaps the most difficult of the Week 3 challenges is having to deal damage “inside a cornfield at Frenzy Farm.” It can be tough trying to land shots in this location in a regular game. But with players all trying to complete this task, you should find plenty of enemies nearby, leading to a few easy shots.

You’ll have to visit Frenzy Farm to complete one of the Week 3 challenges.

While these eight objectives can be blitzed through in just a few games, Epic often tends to hide secret challenges around the map. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled throughout Week 3 of Season 3, as you never know what you may find.


Ali-A reveals unreleased Fortnite skin haunting Weeping Woods

Popular Fortnite YouTuber Ali-A has shown that the previously leaked Madcap skin looks to be coming soon as a mobile glitch has revealed a strange character ‘haunting’ Weeping Woods. 

Across the different Fortnite seasons and updates, Epic Games have released a vast amount of cosmetics – with fans picking out their favorites and donning them in-game. 

Typically, these skins are leaked ahead of time as leakers are able to decrypt games files that are added to the mix with each new update and patch. Some of these skins never see the light of day, or are held back for quite a while, despite being leaked following a patch. 

One of the skins that falls into this category is the Madcap – a glowing, purple, Mushroom-themed skin. It was leaked quite a while back, and while it hasn’t been available just yet, it looks like it will be pretty soon.

Each new Fortnite update leaks a whole host of skins.

Popular YouTuber Ali-A pointed out that some Fortnite mobile players on Android had spotted the outline of a skin sitting around in Weeping Woods. 

The character that seems to be ‘haunting’ the POI, is stood under a tree with their arms crossed. However, it’s not colorful. Instead, it’s a blacked-out silhouette – almost as if it’s going to be added soon, but is showing up as a visual glitch in-game. 

Ali-A noted that the character is most definitely Madcap because of the shape of the head, and given that he’s hanging around Weeping Woods, there might be a challenge or quest line involved with unlocking the skin.

Even though the YouTuber’s speculation seems pretty spot on, there’s no telling if he’s right just yet because Epic Games hasn’t announced anything. 

It could very well be that, as Fortnitemares unfolds, the skin will finally be available through the item shop and there are also challenges in Weeping Woods to unlock skin styles. Though, we’ll just have to wait and see.
