Fortnite Week 6 Challenges: Search Chests At A Hot Spot, Use Storm Flip, And More
Hot on the heels of Fortnite‘s 9.21 update, a new set of challenges is now available in Epic’s hit battle royale game. As usual, this week’s missions arrive in two categories: a small handful that are available to everyone, and some that are reserved for those who’ve purchased a Season 9 Battle Pass.
As has been the trend this season, most of Week 6’s challenges are self-explanatory and can be completed fairly easily with a little persistence. On the free side, there are two multi-stage challenges. The first begins by asking you to land at Lucky Landing, while the second starts off with searching chests at a Hot Spot. The final free challenge is to deal 500 damage to opponents using SMGs.
Battle Pass owners have access to an additional four challenges to complete. These are likewise fairly straightforward. You’ll need to deal damage to a vehicle driven by an opponent; use the new Storm Flip item in three different matches; eliminate three opponents either in The Block or Fatal Fields; and use two different vehicles in a single match. You can see the full list of this week’s challenges below:
Fortnite Season 9, Week 6 Challenges
- Stage 1 of 5: Land at Lucky Landing — 1 Battle Star
- Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (500) — 5 Battle Stars
- Stage 1 of 3: Search chests at a Hot Spot (3) — 3 Battle Stars
- Deal damage to a vehicle driven by an opponent (200) — 5 Battle Stars
- Use a Storm Flip in different matches (3) — 5 Battle Stars
- Use different vehicles in a single match (2) — 10 Battle Stars
- Eliminate opponents in The Block or Fatal Fields (3) — 10 Battle Stars
If you own a Season 9 Battle Pass and complete any four of this week’s challenges, you’ll earn 6,000 XP for your troubles. Each challenge will also reward you with Battle Stars, which will help level your Battle Pass up and, in turn, unlock more of this season’s new skins and other cosmetic rewards. If you need help clearing any previous challenges from this season, you can find guides for the trickier ones in our complete Fortnite Season 9 challenges roundup.
The aforementioned 9.21 update arrived on June 12 and added another new weapon to the game: the Proximity Grenade Launcher, which lobs bouncing explosives at opponents. It comes in Epic and Legendary varieties and can be found in chests, supply drops, vending machines, or from Loot Carriers. The update also kicked off a new, PvE limited-time mode called Horde Rush, which comes with its own assortment of challenges to complete. You can find the full patch notes for the update on Epic’s website.
