Apples to Oranges Punch Card Fortnite is one of the new Punch Card quests. Here's how to sidegrade a weapon to complete the Apples to Oranges Punch Card.

Punch Cards have replaced Daily Challenges in Chapter 2 Season 3. Instead of a rotating set of challenges, you'll be rewarded for things you're already doing in the game. Apples to Oranges has nothing to do with changing an apple into an orange, but it is the Punch Card challenge for sidegrading weapons.

Apples to Oranges Punch Card Fortnite: How to Complete

To sidegrade a weapon, bring an eligible weapon to an upgrade station. Instead of upgrading it to the next level, you can instead sidegrade to an alternate weapon for less resources.

Last season, you could only sidegrade an Assault Rifle into a Heavy Assault Rifle. The Heavy AR was vaulted, but you'll be able to sidegrade other weapons this time around.

You can sidegrade an SMG into a Rapid-Fire SMG, or a Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle into a Hunting Rifle. Sidegrading works both ways, so you can also turn a Hunting Rifle into a regular scoped Sniper if you please.

Strangely, you can't sidegrade the shotguns.

You only need to do this once to get the Punch Card complete. You'll be awarded with 14,000 XP.
