Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges Guide

Every week, all Fortnite players get three Weekly Challenges to complete, with Battle Pass holders receiving an additional four Battle Pass Challenges to take on, which level up their characters and unlock new items such as outfits and emotes. Some are straightforward, whereas others require certain actions to be performed or collectibles to be found, and we've got everything covered in our regularly updated Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges guide.

Fortnite Party Assist

If you're having trouble completing any of the daily or weekly challenges, then Fortnite Party Assist could be just what you need to help you reach your target. By selecting one of your challenges from the menu and turning on Party Assist, the actions of your other Party members will count towards that challenge - so buddy up with some friends and you'll be ticking off the requirements fast.

Fortnite Discovery Challenges Guide

If you manage to beat all of the Battle Pass Challenges for a week, you'll also complete a Discovery Challenge. This awards you with a new loading screen, which hides a secret clue to reveal the location of some bonus Battle Stars or a unique banner. We've got all of these secrets solved in our Fortnite Discovery Challenges guide.

What happens when you earn enough Battle Stars to reach Battle Pass Tier 100? The answer is you unlock one final set of challenges to complete to unlock the top tier skin - Luxe for Season 8 - and you can see exactly what they are in our Fortnite Tier 100 Challenges guide.

Fortnite Chest Locations Guide

One of the keys to achieving a Victory Royale is grabbing decent weapons, and the best way to do this is by popping open some chests. Follow our Fortnite chest locations guide to find all the possible chest spawn locations in each named area of the map.

Fortnite Weapons Guide

With so many different weapons available and only five slots to keep them in, it can be hard to decide what to take with you and what to discard. If you're looking for advice, then read our Fortnite weapons guide to find out which are the best guns and learn some strategies for victory.

Fortnite Llama Locations

Fortnite Apple Locations

If you're running low on health, then finding some Fortnite apples could help you out. Admittedly, they only restore 5 health per fruit consumed which doesn't make them super useful, but they are sometimes required for challenges too so it pays to know where to find them.

Fortnite Mushroom Locations

Likewise, if you want to give your shields a boost then nomming down some Fortnite mushrooms could be just the thing you need. These handy fungi give you 5 shield per 'shroom consumed, which is really handy if you can grab a few when you can't see any potions around.
