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.
