Our Fortnite: Week 4 Challenges guide details all of the new Season 4 Challenges, which features visiting the center of different Storm Circles in a single match and searching between a Bench, Ice Cream Truck, and a Helicopter.
Season 4 of Fortnite is well underway, and as with every weekly reset, there’s a brand new set of challenges to work through.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Weekly Challenges and what they entail, it’s actually a pretty simple affair that’ll ultimately help you progress in Fortnite. Each week you’ll have seven tasks to complete, with some being pretty self explanatory, and others requiring some serious effort to tick off.
Weekly Challenges are well worth your time though, as completing them will reward you with Battle Stars that’ll go towards levelling up your Battle Pass. In turn, this means more unique cosmetic goodies going into your locker!
As we’ve said though, some of these challenges are extremely tough. You might have to rely on map knowledge to search for hidden treasure, or adapt your playstyle on the fly. To help you out, we’ve put together a guide that’ll take you through each Week 4 Challenge and how to beat them as quickly as possible.
Some of the tougher tasks have their own detailed guides, so just click through if you need more help with the trickier ones. Don’t forget that we’ve also got a comprehensive Season 4 guide and all the help you need with the Week 1, Week 2 and Week 3 Challenges as well.

These are all of Week 4’s Challenges in Fortnite, then. Just below we’ve put together a comprehensive list of tips and tricks for getting each one finished without too much hassle.
Deal damage with Assault Rifles to opponents
This one’s pretty self explanatory and requires getting hold of an Assault Rifle before you can get on with the Challenge itself. Once you’ve bagged yourself one, assign it as your primary weapon and use it exclusively in every gun fight.
By doing this, you’ll naturally wrack up Assault Rifle damage and it won’t be long before this challenge is out of the way.
Search Chests in Wailing Woods
To get this challenge out of the way nice and quickly, we’d recommend dedicating a fair few matches to landing here. As soon as you’ve touched ground, start scouring the area for any glowing chests and start cracking them open.
Make sure you play these matches out and don’t quit them early as your efforts will go to waste otherwise!
Search 7 Ammo Boxes in a single match
There’s nothing for it but to focus on searching for as many Ammo Boxes as humanly possible. Again, dedicate as many matches as possible to finding these green objects dotted around the map and forget about getting into any fights until the job’s done.
Ammo Boxes can usually be found in most buildings, just make sure you search each area thoroughly as they’re pretty small!
Visit the center of different Storm Circles in a single match
This one’s pretty tricky and involves moving into the center of 3 Storm Circles during a single match. Now that requires surviving long enough that you’ll see the Storm Circle constrict three times, as well as moving into the center of these circles without being eliminated first.
For this one we’d recommend staying out of trouble and focusing on survival over everything. Of course, keep looting and gearing up, but try and stay out of fights if you can. As soon as the Storm Circle starts constricting, it’s best to move into the center as swiftly as possible.
Keep a plentiful supply of materials so you can build defensive structures when you’re in the center. As soon as you’ve hit the middle, we recommend moving back to the outskirts and repeating the process.
You can also adopt a proactive strategy which requires predicting where the circle’s going to constricting, and moving there early. This way you’ll only have to travel a small distance to start ticking off the challenge and you’re unlikely to encounter any resistance if you’re there before everyone else!
Search between a Bench, Ice Cream Truck, and a Helicopter
Fortnite’s got another tricky challenge for us this week, as you’ll need to search between three specific locations around the map in order to unearth a bunch of Battle Stars.
Thankfully, Youtuber niitq already has us covered with a video that showcases the likely location for the treasure. He’s never been wrong, so it’s safe to assume that when the challenges do go live, this is where you’ll find the treasure.
If you found the video helpful, do make sure to give the video a thumbs up and consider subscribing!If you're in need of a text version, make sure you have a read through our separate Search between a Bench, Ice Cream Truck, and a Helicopter guide.
To kick this challenge off, you’ll need to get a little lucky and obtain a Trap. Once you’ve done so, we’d recommend searching for fights in multi-storey buildings or areas bustling with people - Tilted Towers is a good place to land for this.
Place the Trap on ceilings above doors, so enemies are more likely to stumble into them. To increase your chances of this happening, try and attract some attention before placing them. It’s then a case of luring your prey into the spikes without giving too much away.
Eliminate opponents in Snobby Shores
To get this final challenge ticked off, your best bet is to land in Snobby Shores as soon as each match begins. Immediately search for a weapon once you’ve hit the ground and get on the offensive right away. Moving with speed will increase the likelihood of catching poorly geared enemies off guard.
Do this over the course of a few matches and it won’t be long before this challenge is out of the way!
