About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our Fortnite: Battle Royale Weekly Challenges guide features a list of challenges, reset times and rewards information with tips for completing each one.

Weekly Challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale provide you with a collection of varied tasks to complete, with a fresh set added to the game on a weekly basis. These challenges might involve you taking out the competition using a certain weapon a specific number of times, for example, or simply surviving longer than a fixed number of other players.

Some of these tasks are tougher to complete than others, and so you can accumulate any number of Seasonal Weekly Challenges over time if you struggle to complete them in any given week - or you simply run out of time. Just remember that you must wrap them all up before the end of the current season or they'll vanish for good.

In this article you'll find a breakdown of all the Fortnite: Battle Royale's Weekly Challenges that are currently live in the game. A lot of these are self-explanatory, but we've got in-depth guides to completing some of the tougher ones. Just click the links to go straight towards the help you need!

Season 5 of Fortnite is now under way, and we've overhauled the guide so it includes all of the latest information. At the top you'll find a breakdown of the new Season 5 Challenges, and we'll slot in links to all of our coverage as and when we run it!

What kind of Weekly Challenges are available?

Here are all of the Weekly Challenge types that we're aware of in Fortnite: Battle Royale, including details of what you'll be rewarded with typically. If there's one we've missed, let us know in the comments and we'll include the information when we next update this article.

Harvest building resources with a pickaxe

Objective: Harvest building resources with a pickaxe

To finish this you're going to have to survive longer than 150 other poor souls. Note from the name of this challenge that you must complete the objective while in the Solo queue. No teaming up with friends for this one we're afraid.

To finish this, simply go around the map hitting everything with your Pickaxe. It won't be long before you complete this challenge!

Use X

Objective: Use a Trap/Launchpad/Bush

This one tasks you with using an item like a "Bush" or "Launchpad". You'll come across them naturally while playing, so just make sure you use them when given the opportunity.

Deal damage with X to players

Objective: Deal damage with X to players.

Each week you'll usually be tasked with dealing damage to players with a specific weapon. Get hold of one as soon as possible and ensure you're using it at every available opportunity. Eventually you'll complete the challenge!

Search Chests in X

Objective: Search Chests in X

In this task, you'll have to search for chests in a specific location. To complete it quickly, land here and go about running about and cracking them open.

Check out out chest map guide to make this challenge even easier every week!

Visit different X

Objective: Visit different X

A unique challenge that crops up most weeks, this one tasks you with visiting different locations dotted across the map. We've had Ice Cream Trucks and Gas Stations, so try and memorise points of interest when you're in game to make finding future locations a little easier.

Land on different X

Objective: Land on different X's around the map

Making its first appearance in Week 3, it required players to find and land on different bullseyes dotted across the map.

Follow the treasure map found in X

Objective: Find the treasure

Potentially the trickiest of the lot, these Treasure Map Challenges task you with locating a Treasure Map in one of Fortnite's main locations. It's then a case of giving it a read and figuring out where the treasure is according to the clues you're given.

Search between X

Objective: Search between X, X and X

You'll be given three points of interest on the map and you'll need to pinpoint a location that resides between them all.

Make sure you take a look at our map locations guide for an overview of all the locations in Fortnite: Battle Royale!

Search X

Objective: Search X

Often you'll be tasked with finding a certain number of strange items across Fortnite's map. These range from Hidden Gnomes to Rubber Duckies which'll make noises whenever you're close to discovering them.

X Eliminations

Objective: Eliminate enemies with X

This one is pretty self explanatory. All you have to do is eliminate enemies with a certain weapon type.

For a complete list of all the weapons in the game, check out our weapons tier list with stats page!

Eliminate opponents in X

Objective: Eliminate opponents in a certain main location

You'll have to defeat enemies in a certain area. We recommend landing at whichever point on the map it is and constantly seeking out fights until you've got it checked off!

Spray over X

Objective: Spray over different X or X

Added in Season , you'll need to search for certain posters or objects around the world using the emote wheel.

When do Weekly Challenges reset?

New Weekly Challenges will turn up every Thursday (previously Tuesday), and the exact time for the switchover is 4:00pm PST. That's 7:00pm EST, 12:00am in the UK and 1:00am in Europe.

How do you abandon a Weekly Challenge?

Unlike Daily Challenges - which have since been replaced by the Weekly Challenge system - you can't abandon them anymore. Instead you'll simply have a bank of challenges to complete over time, so you don't need to worry about picking and choosing. Work towards whichever take your fancy, and those you don't complete will still be available to complete until the current Season comes to an end.

What are the rewards for finishing Weekly Challenges?

Completing each one of the Weekly Challenges that we've highlighted in this guide will reward you with 500 experience points.

Each Weekly Challenge rewards you with a different number of Battle Stars which are used to level up your Battle Pass ranks. You can earn either 5 or 10 stars per challenge depending on its difficulty.

Completing Weekly Challenges are a great way of increasing your Battle Pass rank and working towards unique cosmetic rewards.
