Our Fortnite Week 9 Challenges guide contains a list of all the challenges in Week 9 of Season 5, with tips, tricks and strategy advice for completing each one and earning your Battle Star rewards.
We can’t believe it’s Week 9 of Season 5 already, so if you want to go into Season 6 with as much levelling done as possible, this week’s set of challenges are might important.
If you’re familiar with the game’s weekly challenge system, then Week 9’s tasks won’t come as much of a shock. It’s the staple mix of searching for a hidden item, cracking open chests, earning eliminations with a certain weapon and seeking them out in a named location.
For those of you who haven’t purchased the Battle Pass, you’ll need to deal damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents, use an All Terrain Kart and follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts.
If you’re a Battle Pass owner, then you’ll have all the Free tasks to complete as well as four extra challenges to increase your Battle Star haul. You’ll need to search for chests in Pleasant Park, Dance Off with another player near Loot Lake, earn Assault Rifle eliminations and Eliminate opponents in Tomato Temple.

Those are all of the challenges available in Week 9 of Fortnite Season 5, 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.
Deal damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents
To get this challenge done and dusted, you’ll need to get your hands on an explosive weapon and let loose on your opponents. Once you’ve got a Grenade Launcher, Rocket Launcher or Guided Missile to hand, make sure you’re using it as often as possible to wrack up those damage numbers!
Get Trick Points in a Shopping Cart or ATK
This one's actually pretty simple and involves getting hold of either one of these vehicles. It's then a case of building a structure leading towards the sky, popping some booster pads on it, whatever takes your fancy and driving into or off what you've built. A trick meter will appear at the bottom left of your screen which'll show how many points you're wracking up.
Rinse and repeat this process to earn a total of 150,000 points!
Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts

Search a Chest in Haunted Hills
You'll need to loot one chest in Haunted Hills to complete this challenge. From what we've gathered this is a 5 part challenge that'll reward you with one star per chest opened, but the location changes each time. So you'll need to loot Haunted Hills, before moving onto Shifty Shafts, Lazy Links, then Tilted Towers and Risky Reels. Thanks @FNLeak for the info.
Visit different Stone Heads
For this challenge, you'll need to visit 7 different Stone Heads across the map. Our All Stone Head locations guide has you covered!
Assault Rifle Eliminations
To get this task ticked off, you’ll need to earn 5 Assault Rifle eliminations in total. There’s nothing for it but to keep an eye out for an Assault Rifle when you’re out looting. When you’ve got one to hand, make sure you’re using it as your primary weapon and aiming for the head for extra damage.
If you’re playing in squads or duos, you’ll down enemy players if you bring their health total down to zero. Switch to your Assault Rifle and finish off downed enemies for quick and easy eliminations!
Eliminate opponents in Tomato Temple
This final challenge requires you to eliminate players in Tomato Temple, so try and combine it with some of the other challenges in this week’s pool for maximum efficiency!
