The Fortnite Battle Royale challenges for Week 6 of Season 5 have been leaked online by data miners, confirming earlier leaks.

The leak has appeared on Fortnite Tracker, a website that is known for its accurate database and tracking network, so expect to see the official challenges match the data mined ones. It also concurs with a leak from earlier in the week that came from @FNLeak on Twitter.

If Fortnite Tracker is correct, the August 16 challenges will include a mixture of three free challenges and four challenges that are only available for Battle Pass owners:

Challenges like searching chests in Lonely Lodge or dealing headshot damage are a common sight, but tasks like completing timed trials and searching “where the Stone Heads are looking” are sure to keep players guessing.

If you can’t see the image above, the leaked challenges for Week 6 of Season 5 are as follows:

FREE PASS CHALLENGES

  • Deal Headshot damage to opponents (500)
  • Harvest building resources with a pickaxe (3000)
  • Search where the Stone Heads are looking (1) – HARD

BATTLE PASS CHALLENGES

  • Search chests in Lonely Lodge (7)
  • Complete timed trials (5)
  • Minigun or Light Machine Gun Eliminations (2) – HARD
  • Eliminate opponents in Tilted Towers (3) – HARD

While Fortnite Tracker is a trusted source, there is always a chance that Epic Games will make some last minute changes to the challenges so take leaks like this with a pinch of salt.

The official release of the challenges is expected to come at 14:00 BST (09:00 EDT).

How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
