Fortnite Season 6 has begun, which means it’s time for a fresh start with a whole new Battle Pass. As with the previous season, we’ll be here every week to give you a complete breakdown of all the newest challenges, the rewards you’ll get for completing them, and guides for getting them done as quickly and easily as possible. For those new to this, here’s a quick breakdown of how everything works: By completing weekly challenges you’ll earn Battle Stars that level up your Battle Pass and unlock certain rewards. However, challenges are split into two tiers, with some only available to those that have spent 950 V-Bucks in-game on a paid Battle Pass.
For the first week of Season 6 there’s a nice selection of challenges available in both the free and paid tier. In the former, you’ll need to grab a Legendary Item in three different matches, use a Cozy Campfire to restore 150 points of health, and begin a multi-stage quest by searching three chests. Once those three have been searched, more stages will open up.
In the paid tier, meanwhile, you’ll need to apply 500 points of shield, land at Junk Junction to kick off another multi-stage quest, dance under seven Streetlight Spotlights, and eliminate an opponent in five different named locations. If you manage to complete any four of these challenges you’ll earn 5K XP.
