Those are all of the challenges available in Week 6 of Fortnite Season 6, then, but how do you complete them all? Good question, and in the rest of this article we'll go through each task one by one.
Place Chillers in different matches
To complete this challenge all you need to do is go ahead and place 1 Chiller Trap in 3 different matches. It’s a case of getting lucky enough to find or loot one, but as soon as you’ve got one, make sure you slap it down as quickly as possible.
Search a chest in different Named Locations
For this one, you’ll need to search a total of 7 chests in different named locations. By this, it means locations around the map which are named, like Tilted Towers, Snobby Shores and the like. This means that the Viking Village doesn’t count for example.
There’s nothing for it but to get aggressive once you’ve bagged a shotgun. Get up close and personal, focus on landing those shots and you’ll get this challenge done in no time. Just remember, don’t be afraid to get stuck into fights!
Land at Shifty Shafts
As the name suggests, you simply need to land at Shifty Shafts for this one. Just prepare for an absolute bloodbath once you’ve hit the ground as everyone else will be aiming to complete the same challenge.
Deal damage with a pickaxe to opponents
We’d recommend landing as close to an enemy as possible and rushing at them with your pickaxe raised as soon as they land. Just accept your fate is sealed if they manage to get hold of a gun, but focus all your attention on smacking them with your harvesting tool as soon as they stop for even a second.
It’ll take some time, but keep at it over the course of several matches and you’ll get there.
Find the Sheet Music in Pleasant Park
This challenge is a multi-stage affair that'll send you across the map in search of sheet music and pianos. Our All Sheet Music and Piano locations has you covered!
Elimination with a Common Weapon
As soon as you’ve got hold of a common weapon, it’s then a case of treating it as your primary. Your chances are significantly higher if you bag an assault rifle or shotgun as they’re easily some of the strongest weapons in the game.
