Fortnite Week 6 Challenges are live – it’s time to bag ’em up. No diggity, no doubt.

There are only a few days left to get credit for these challenges – the Fortnite Season 5 start date is July 12.

The Week 6 Fortnite Challenges contain seven challenges in total, all at different difficulty levels. For some, you’ll just have to find and use certain types of weapons. While other send you across the map in search of secret locations.

Completing each one unlocks Battle Stars which are used to unlock more tiers in the Fortnite Season 4 Battle Pass. If you complete four out of the seven, you get 5K of bonus XP, which goes towards earning you even more Battle Stars, as well as new parts for the Carbide skin.
