Fortnite Visit Fatal Fields and Salty Springs

This staged challenge is simple and requires players to just visit both areas in a single match. Try not to get killed along the way.


Fortnite Destroy Cacti in the Desert

Another simple but more tedious challenge requires players to just smash cacti with a pickaxe in the desert.


Fortnite Trap Slot items

This is also an easy challenge, with the only difficulty being actually finding the items. Remember, you need to place different items, so try a combination of a floor trap and campfire.


Magnifying Glass Fortnite

Travel to the area of trees southwest of Polar Peak to find the hidden Battle Star. Look for the patch of dirt as always with these challenges.


Search Chests Fortnite

Very simple task, and easy to connect with the free challenge. Just open seven chests in either Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields.


Headshot Damage Fortnite

Aim for the head.


Eliminations Fortnite

This challenge might be a pain if you struggle with one of the particular weapons. Again, aim for the head.
