We’re in the final stretch of Fortnite Season 6, with just two more weeks remaining. That means time is quickly running out for those wanting to get this season’s crop of Battle Stars and unlock all the cosmetic rewards by levelling up your Battle Pass. This week’s challenges are now available, and we’ve got the full breakdown on what you’ll need to do below.
This week, in the free section, the challenges involve visiting Lonely Lodge and Retail Row in a single match, dancing with a fish trophy at seven different named locations, and getting eliminations with a Six Shooter or Heavy Assault Rifle.
For those with a paid Battle Pass, however, there’s an additional set of challenges that are a little harder. The first asks you to get a score of three on three different Clay Pigeon Shooters, use a vehicle to rack up 250,000 trick points, visit four different named locations in a match, and use a grappling hook. That final challenge will is the first part of a multi-stage one that will reveal further steps once completed. Take a look at the full challenge list below.

On November 14, developer Epic Games release Fortnite patch 6.30, introducing a new Limited Time Event called Food Fight. This is a team-based event in which the two in-game restaurants, Durrr Burger and Pizza Pit, battle it out to prove who is superior. To prove their supremacy, teams must aim to destroy their enemy’s mascot. Gameplay has a setup phase during which players can fortify their mascot and protect it.
The patch also introduces a new weapon to help do this: the Mounted Turret. This functions pretty much as you’d expect a turret to. Although it’s powerful and capable of laying down a hail of bullets, overuse will cause it to overheat, so players will need to be thoughtful about how much they rely weapon. Finally, update 6.30 removed the glider re-deploy mechanic from the default modes, though it is still available in a few big team modes and the Playground.
