Fortnite Season 9 Challenges (week 1): Visit Sky Platforms, Scoped Eliminations, And More



The rollover to Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 9 is complete. We’ve got a brand new Battle Pass that’s absolutely packed with cosmetics to unlock, including some very cool skins. But if you want any of those, you’ll need to earn Battle Stars so that they level up your Battle Pass and make them accessible. The best way to do that is the weekly Season 9 challenges, the first batch of which is now available. Here’s what’s in store for Week 1, and what you’ll need to do.

In Fortnite Season 9, Week 1, players will need to ride the new Slip Stream travel system around Neo Tilted, one of the new areas that have been added to the map. On top of that, they’ll need to visit all seven sky platforms, and deal damage to enemies immediately after using the Shadow Bomb item.

Players that have the premium Battle Pass will have to grab a legendary item in five different matches, search seven chests in either Lucky Landing or Loot Lake, take out enemies using scoped weapons, and deal damage to opponents from at least two stories above them. If you’re able to complete any four challenges from this week (which requires you to buy the Battle Pass), you’ll get some bonus XP to speed up your progression. Completing all seven will unlock an accompanying Utopia challenge.

Free Challenges:

Stage 1: Ride the Slipstream around Neo Tilted

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far




The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25




In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
