Fortnite challenges for Season 4 Week 3 are live, giving you another opportunity to rise up the tiers in Battle Royale.

You can only complete these challenges for another couple of days though, since Fortnite Season 5 starts this Thursday.

Season 4 Battle Pass owners of Fortnite can check out all the challenges for week 3, which will hand you more Battle Stars and XP. Complete 4 of the seven weekly challenges and you’ll net another 4,000 XP on top of everything else you’re earning. Doing so will move you up the tiers, unlocking new emotes, outfits and V-Bucks.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 3 Challenges

  • Revive Players – 5 stars
  • All you need to do is revive 5 players during Duo or Squads matches. Easy.

  • Deal damage with Pistols to opponents  – 5 stars
  • Pistols aren’t the most glamorous weapons in Fortnite. We recommend the Hand Cannon for damage of the Suppressed Pistol for rapid take downs.

  • Search Chests in Lonely Lodge – 5 stars
  • Not the most popular location for dropping in, but Lonely Lodge has plenty of chests stashed away.

  • Search Rubber Duckies – 5 stars
  • You’ll need to find 10 Rubber Duckies dotted around the map. We have a full and clear visual guide right here for you.

  • Follow the treasure map found in Salty Springs (HARD) – 10 stars
  • Check out the map in Salty Springs to find the giant Battle Star. You can drop straight in from the Battle Bus to claim that.

  • Sniper Rifle Eliminations (HARD) – 10 stars
  • Two kills with a Sniper Rifle will bag you 10 stars.

  • Eliminate opponents in Tilted Towers (HARD) – 10 stars
  • As if Tilted Towers isn’t a killzone already, now you can get rewarded for taking down three players among the carnage.

Note: These challenges have been updated by Epic Games. The challenge Watch a Match Replay has been replaced with Revive Players.

As ever, you’ll need the Season 4 Battle Pass to be able to access the challenges. The Battle Pass costs 950 V-Bucks and can be purchased through the in-game store.

A new Fortnite patch has also gone live, offering a Burst Assault Rifle and health-restoring apples, as well as an auto pick-up option.

Don’t forget that previous weeks challenges remain live so there’s still opportunities to grab that extra XP and any remaining Battle Stars.
