Fortnite Season 9 is here and the servers are back live, so you can now jump right into a bunch of challenges.
The first set of Season 9 challenges were released on May 9, alongside the highly-anticipated v9.00 update. The start of the new Fortnite Battle Royale season has changed the theme of two areas - Neo Tilted Towers and Mega Mall - to a new futuristic look.
That pesky Volcano has also been changed after it’s eruption following the ‘Unvaulting’ event on May 4. It is now known as ‘Pressure Plant’ and plays a key role in some of the early challenges - especially visiting the new Sky Platforms.
It’s a pretty simple challenge to complete, as you don’t really have to interact with other players if you don’t want to. The best way to do it is to hop on out of the battle bus and aim right for the locations that marked on the map above.
Sure, other players might be deciding to do the same thing too, but if you want to get the challenge out of the way as soon as possible, drop onto the platforms, wait for your progression bar to pop up and leave the game.
You won’t be able to miss the Sky Platforms in-game as they are hovering in the air between the newly introduced slipstreams - looking like a drone. Like the Pirate Camps from Season 8, they appear on the map but you might need eagle vision to see them properly.
As long as your challenge progression completes, you can leave the game and repeat the method over and over until the challenge is completed.
Completing the challenge will net you five Battle Stars towards you next Battle Pass level, and seeing as it’s week one, they're all pretty easy challenges to tick off and get your Season 9 off to a good start.
