We’re back after our three week hiatus and we’re ready to get stuck into Week 6 of Fortnite Season 7. Nothing has changed with the Battle Pass over the new year, so nothing groundbreaking to mention. The usual 950 V-bucks is required to access four of the challenges and the Battle Pass specific rewards. We’re over the halfway point of Season 7, however, so if you’re keen for some specific rewards (especially those at the end of the reward scheme), best get started now.
The challenges for the second week of 2019 seem to be of the typical variety, but we do see the return of a very involved scavenger hunt style challenge, gnomes and all. Season 3 and 4 veterans will be quite familiar with the way this challenge plays out, as per usual we’ll include the link our dedicated article in the relevant section.
Fortnite Season 7: Week 6 Free Tier Challenges
Search an Ammo Box in different named locations (7 Ammo Boxes) This challenge should be no mystery to any long-time player of Fortnite, being used by Epic a fair few times before. You need to search seven Ammo Boxes in different named locations (as in named on the map). It does not need to be done in a single game, but you can’t reuse the same location even in a different game. No real special strategy required here, just play as you would usually and Battle Bus’ different paths should take you where you need to go over a few matches.
Search Chilly Gnomes (7 Chilly Gnomes) This is also a returning challenge, but from much earlier seasons (3 and 4). This is a fairly involved scavenger hunt challenge that Epic was very fond of in their earlier iterations of Battle Pass challenges. If you’re looking for an in depth walkthrough or a map of the gnomes locations, you can check out our dedicated article soon.
Eliminate opponents in Lucky Landing of Tilted Towers (3 eliminations) The standard ‘get eliminations at Y location’ challenge you see most weeks, though usually your choice between two specific locations is the rarer permutation of the two. You have the choice of Lucky Landing or Tilted Towers. Your choice here should be fairly straightforward. Tilted Towers is a hotbed of fighting, Lucky Landing usually only sees moderate to heavy traffic during a challenge or a direct Battle Bus route. Regardless, I’d recommend Tilted Towers and just grind out those three kills. If you get lucky with an early weapon, you might be able to eek it out in a single round.
Fortnite Season 7: Week 6 Battle Pass Tier Challenges
Multi-stage: Visit 2 named locations per match (3 stages) Another multi-location challenge, this time a multi-stage based on travel. With the addition of the Stormwing (the Biplane), ‘sightseeing’ based challenges have never been easier. With this challenge you need to visit two locations in a single match and then you’ll be awarded the next stage. The order of the stages is as follows: Polar Peak and Tilted Towers (sync this up with the elimination challenge if efficiency matters to you) > Lucky Landing and Retail Row > Lazy Links and Shifty Shafts. As mentioned previously, the easiest way to complete this is grab a Stormwing and just fly to each location (make sure you fly low enough). Safe and quick.
Slide an Ice Puck over 150m in a single throw A unique toy based challenge. This one requires the Ice Puck to complete, which is obtained at level 28 of this season’s Battle Pass. Once you have (or if you already have) the Ice Puck, take it to the giant frozen lake that used to be Greasy Grove. Chuck it at across the lake and the lack of friction should see you through. Not an overly difficult challenge to complete, but if you’ve been slacking off on your challenges (or been busy over the holidays!), you might need to unlock the Ice Puck first. Here’s how to slide an Ice Puck over 150m in a single throw in Fortnite.
Multi-stage: Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (3 stages) Another multi-stage challenge, with this one being focused on damage dealing. All the stages require you do 200 damage with a specific weapon type before unlocking the next stage. The order of stages are: SMGs > Assault Rifles > Grenades (including Clingers and Stink Bombs). The first two stages are fairly easy, being powerful weapon types, grenades can be a little more tricky, just be liberal with them and you’ll get it done in no time.
Deal damage with different weapons in a single match (5 weapons) The final challenge for the week is an interesting one, simultaneously both difficult and easy at the same time. You only need to some damage (as in, any damage) to receive credit, but you also need to live long enough to get five weapons out before you also bite the dust. The good news is, it doesn’t need to be damage to a player, merely damage to something owned by an enemy player. This means structures or a vehicle they’re riding seems to be counted as the damage done. The first order of business would be obviously to collect five different weapons, but this also limits your recovery and utility options (shields, health, Port-a-forts, etc.). Another good trick would be to join a group (squads, duos, special game-modes) game-mode, down a player, then do damage to the downed player while cycling through your options. You can knock out 2-5 weapons in one go easily depending on your loadout.
