The latest season of Fortnite is here and that means the Fortnite Season 9 Week 1 challenges are also here. As usual, challenges are split between free for everyone and extra ones for Battle Pass owners. Those who have purchased a Battle Pass will get the free challenges with some bonus challenges for having purchased the Pass.
Week 1 challenges
- Stage 1 of 2: Rid the Slipstream around Neo Tilted (1): 2 Battle Stars
- Visit all Sky Platforms (7): 5 Battle Stars
- Hard: Deal damage to opponents within 10s after using Shadow Bomb (200): 10 Battle Stars
Stage 1 or 2: Ride the Slipstream around Neo Tilted
- Stage 1: Ride the Slipstream around Neo Tilted
- Stage 2: Ride the Slipstream around Mega Mall
Visit all Sky Platforms
For this challenge, you need to visit all 7 Sky Platforms or Skybases but they don’t need to be done in a single match, so if you want to take your time, you have that option. You can find the Sky Platforms at these locations:
- Southwest of Pleasant Park
- West of Shifty Shaft
- In between Salty Springs and Fatal Fields
- Southwest of Dusty Divot
- South of Lazy Lagoon
- Pressure Plant
- North of Paradise Palms
Deal damage to opponents within 10s after using Shadow Bomb
This is going back to the 10s challenge from last week, but what you’ll need to do is pick up some Shadow Bombs and a shotgun or two and find some opponents. After using the Shadow Bomb deal 200 damage to opponents and you’ll complete this challenge in no time.
- Pick up a Legendary item in different matches (5): 5 Battle Stars
- Search chests in Lucky Landing or Loot Lake (7): 5 Battle Stars
- Hard: Scoped weapon eliminations (3): 10 Battle Stars
- Hard: Stage 1 of 3: Deal damage to opponents from at least 2 stories above (1) 10 Battle Stars
Pick up a Legendary item in different matches
Picking up weapons is something easy to do, but getting a Legendary item is not. If you can find one at the beginning of the game or by waiting it out is a good plan, but you will only need to pick up a Legendary item in 5 different matches.
Search chests in Lucky Landing or Loot Lake
As the name of the challenge goes, you will need to search chests in either Lucky Landing or Loot Lake. Find 7 altogether and you’re good to go.
Scoped weapon eliminations
This shouldn’t be considered a hard challenge to complete, but it could take a few tries if you’re not the greatest at sniping. Once you find 3 opponent with your scoped weapon, take them out to complete this challenge.
Stage 1 of 3: Deal damage to opponents from at least 2 stories above
- Stage 1: Deal 300 damage to opponents from at least 2 stories above
- Stage 2: Deal 200 damage to opponents from at least 4 stories above
- Stage 3: Deal 100 damage to opponents from at least 6 stories above
