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

Our Fortnite Hunting Party and Calamity Challenges guide explains how to unlock the Dire, Calamity and Hunting Party skins, complete their associated challenges and upgrade them over the course of Season 6.

Season 6 of Fortnite’s introduced a tonne of new content to the game. There are now pets that hang out in your backpack, fancy cloaks, special Shadow Stones that turn you invisible and plenty of spooky map changes too. On top of all this there are, of course, a host of exciting new skins to kit our characters out with.

Among all of Season 6’s new skins, there are two in particular that stand out from the crowd: Dire and Calamity. You’ll unlock Calamity for simply purchasing the Battle Pass but Dire’s a reward for reaching rank 100. They’ve got a common theme though, and that’s the fact that they’ll look really basic when you unlock them. Crack on with their associated challenges though and they’ll begin transforming into some seriously slick looking outfits.

Both Dire and Calamity have different challenges to complete each week, and two completely different looks. Below we’ll take you through everything you need to know about unlocking them and upgrading them.

For a complete overview of everything that Season 6 has to offer, make sure you head on over to our Season 6 guide!

UPDATE: Now featuring Week 2's hidden Battle Star. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see where it's located!
