Epic Games

Free challenges

  • Deal damage to opponents with Grenades, Dynamite, or Stink Bombs (0/200)
  • Search chests at Salty Springs or Frosty Flights (0/7)
  • Eliminate an opponent in different matches (0/7)

Battle Pass challenges

Deal 200 damage with Grenades, Dynamite, or Stink Bombs — 5 Battle Stars

Damage challenges are fairly straightforward. Find the throwables and chuck them at your opponent to start racking up those numbers. To quickly complete this challenge, try to land a grenade or dynamite near a group of players.

Search 5 chests at Salty Springs or Frosty Flights — 5 Battle Stars

The best bet to finish this challenge in one go is to start at Frosty Flights at the southwest part of the map and grab chests there. Then run to the Salty Springs and pick up the rest there.

Eliminate 7 opponents in different matches — — 10 Battle Stars

Like the previous two, this task is straightforward. Players should already be eliminating others throughout a match so getting seven over multiple matches won’t be tough.

How to complete a lap of a snowy, desert and grasslands race track — 5 Battle Stars

There are three race tracks on the island, and as the challenge says, they’re located in the snow, desert and grasslands.

Place trap items in different matches — 5 Battle Stars

Trap items can be a little hard to find, but luckily, all that is required for this challenge is to place them and not get eliminations. As soon as you obtain one, place it at the nearest building or simply create your own structure to use for the trap.

Where to visit 5 different Wind Turbines in a single match — 10 Battle Stars

Wind turbines are located in different parts of the island, but to easily finish this task, head to Pleasant Park. There are six turbines in the mountains surrounding this area. Just run from one to another until you’ve been to five of them.

Eliminate 3 opponents at Sky Platforms — 10 Battle Stars

Sky Platforms are new in Fortnite season 9. There are seven across the island, or rather above it, and each will have some loot. This challenge will require players to land at a Sky Platform and open a chest in hopes of getting a weapon. With a weapon in hand, it won’t be hard to get eliminations as other players landing will only have their pickaxe. The trick for this challenge is to eliminate opponents before they try to jump off.

Utopia Challenges

Like in previous seasons, Fortnite season 9 has a season-long set of tasks called Utopia Challenges, for Battle Pass owners. Tackling these special challenges requires the completion of all the weekly challenges throughout the season. The reward for all the work is the Utopia skin.

When players finish the weekly challenges, they’ll receive a new loading screen that hints at a secret Battle Star. Completing the Fortnite season 9 week 1 challenges unlocks the loading screen below. The clue to where to find the secret Battle Star is on the side of the minigun that gives the coordinates I5, I6, J5 and J6. This is a spot just south of Lonely Lounge, right before the green plains turn into the desert. The hidden Battle Star will appear only if a player who completed all challenges is within close proximity.

For Fortnite season 9 week 2, the unlocked loading screen doesn’t have a hint hidden in the image, but instead, it’s in the description of the screen. It says, “Last seen battling at Dino Park outhouse, these two can’t be stopped.” This’ll lead to the location of Fortbyte #13 and not a Battle Star for the week.

Once a player’s done with week 3’s challenges, a new loading screen will show a new Doggo skin. The hint for the Battle Star is in the drawing on the small wall that the dogs are sitting on. It leads to a stack of cars in Junk Junction and the secret Battle Star will appear when players come near it.

Like in week 2’s Utopia loading screen, week 4’s image provides players a clue of where to get a Fortbyte rather than Battle Star. Players on the search for Forbyte #91 will need to visit Paradise Palms. Off the main street in the area is a storefront where the “D” and “I” are on the map. Look for a bench near the road and Fortbyte #91 should appear.

Week 5’s Utopia loading screen features a new skin. To the right, in white, are the map designations of B2, B3, C2 and C3. 

That will take players to the mountain northwest of Pleasant Park. If all challenges for the week have been completed, a hidden Battle star will appear.
