Kevin the Cube’s return to Fortnite Battle Royale has been a long time coming and it appears that a whole host of new limited-time missions focusing around its Island’s return have been activated to celebrate.

Seasoned veterans of the free-to-play game will know that there has been a different strategy deployed by Epic Games for its challenge system in Season 10, with a number of limited-time tasks being introduced for players to complete. 


With that being said, a brand new set of The Return challenges have been added following the v10.20 content update, meaning that a whole host of fresh rewards will soon be available to collect in Week 6.

These limited time challenges will task players with arriving and picking up eliminations at a number of locations dotted around the Fortnite map, including Fatal Fields – where a Rift Beacon first appeared, and is now the home of Kevin the Cube’s Floating Island.


The full list of challenges have been leaked by Lucas7Yoshi for Week 6 and can be found below, along with the rewards.

  • Sniper Rifle Eliminations (1) 
  • Outlast opponents in Solo or Duos mode (150)
  • Deal damage with Scoped weapons to opponents (500)
  • Search Ammo Boxes at Fatal Fields or Lonely Lodge (7)
  • Use different throwable items in a single match (2)

  • Complete four challenges (10 Battle Stars)
  • Complete five challenges (1,000 Season XP)

As seen in the list, it doesn’t matter which of the challenges that you choose to complete with these limited time objectives. For example, if you want to unlock The Return loading screen, simply choose any three tasks you feel are the easiest and check them off in order to collect the reward. 

These challenges have been confirmed by Epic Games and are now available to complete. It’s worth noting, though, that just one of these challenges will be unlocked every day until September 12, then they will disappear.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
