Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges: How to complete his tasks and unlock the Shadow or Ghost Meowscles style

Week 6 of the season is here, which signals the arrival of another set of tasks from the swole feline Agent to complete the roster of Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges. As with the previous Agent's assignments to launch in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, there are now a total of 20 challenges to complete so you can finish the henchcat's mission. While the newest tasks aren't quite as cat-like as the ones from the previous week, destroying dog houses is pretty on the nose at least, and you have the usual Fortnite elimination, weapon damage, and location visiting duties.

If you're keen to further level up your battle pass, then there's a generous 40,000 Season XP available for everything you cross off this list. Read on and we'll explain all you need to know about how to clear the Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges, as well as detailing how you can unlock the Fortnite Meowscles Shadow or Ghost style.

You'll find the Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges listed on the Challenge Table, situated in the main HQ screen within the Battle Pass menu. Switch across the tabs along the top of the screen until you see Meowscles' Mischief, which will then place markers around the map to indicate the areas where challenges can be completed – handily this screen has now been updated so you can see all of the Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges by selecting the icon in the bottom left corner of the map screen. There may be some challenges that have more than one map marker in place, because they span several different locations.

Fortnite Meowscles' Mischief challenges week 5

Search Chests at Misty Meadows or Salty Springs (10)

This challenge doesn't really need any explanation, so head to whichever location is furthest away from the battle bus route and start hunting down ten of those chests.

Eliminate players with Assault Rifles from at least 50 meters (5)

Grab an assault rifle in Team Rumble mode then start taking down opponents, or try a more competitive mode if you're feeling confident in your abilities.

Consume fish to gain health or shields (400)

There are three different types of fish you can eat:

  • Small Fry: +25 health (to a maximum of 75)
  • Flopper: +50 health
  • Slurpfish: +50 health or shield

You can catch these at fishing spots (the white rippling circles in water), and also find them in Fortnite ice boxes which are the chiller units that can be searched like chests. You can carry these around in your inventory and consume when required, if you end up with more than you can use.

Deal damage to players while using Creepin Cardboard (200)

Creepin Cardboard is a new item players can use to hide in, then pop out of by aiming to attack opponents. There are normally plenty of them around, but if you're struggling to find some Creepin Cardboard then head to the Box Factory in map grid G7, just northwest of the [redacted] area.

Survive a fall from at least 5 stories high (9)

The easiest way to reach the required height for this is to build five ramp sections in a row, then drop from the top of it. As you'll need to do this a number of times, Team Rumble is the best mode to tackle it.

Deal damage to Henchmen with Pickaxes (100)

Although you can attack Henchmen with pickaxes at any time, it's probably best not to while they have the ability to shoot you. Knock them first, then run up and finish them off with your pickaxe to rack up the damage.

Visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site without swimming in a single match (1)

If you're trying to Fortnite visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site without swimming in a single match then we have a separate guide covering this, and our main advice is to stay out of the water because as soon as you go in the challenge is voided for that match.

Kick a soccer ball 100 meters (100)

The key to Fortnite kick a soccer ball 100 meters is finding a ball in a good starting position, and we've got details of a mountain with one on top just waiting to be yeeted off the side.

Deal damage to players using Miniguns (400)

As one of the Fortnite new and unvaulted weapons making a return to the game, you'll find miniguns as floor loot, in chests, or carried by certain Henchmen. If you can find one in Team Rumble then you won't lose it if you get eliminated, giving you ample opportunity to build up damage.

Visit Shipwreck Cove, Yacht, and Flopper Pond (3)

To wrap things up we have a classic sightseeing mission, so make your way to the Fortnite Shipwreck Cove, Yacht, and Flopper Pond locations to tick them off.

Eliminate opponents at the Yacht or Salty Springs (5)

The Yacht and Salty Springs are both named locations so are easy to find, and if you get a Team Rumble match that centres the combat around either location then racking up five eliminations should be possible.

Search a chest within 10 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus (10)

Aim to land at a named location or landmark where you know there will be chests nearby, then make a beeline for one and open it before those 10 seconds run out.

Deal damage to players while riding in a Choppa (200)

Choppas are the Fortnite helicopters you'll find on helipads at various locations around the island – they don't have any built-in weapons so you'll need to switch seats and fire your own from the side to deal damage. Ideally try this with a friend piloting, but if that's not possible you can always land the Choppa in a handy location then switch seats and fire at enemies as they approach, though this will leave you somewhat exposed.

Catch a weapon, a can, and a fish (3)

Using a rod or harpoon on a fishing spot should net you a weapon and a fish fairly quickly, but if you want to catch a can then keep casting a rod into open water away from actual useful fishing spots and you should get a can to 'bite'.

Destroy dog houses (3)

If you're heading out to Fortnite destroy dog houses then you'll want to hit up residential areas as that's where these canine cabins are found. We've got a complete guide to their locations, but if you're in a rush then four can be found within Holly Hedges.

Deal damage to players using Assault Rifles (1,000)

This one is pretty self-explanatory, but as always Team Rumble is the best mode to stack up the damage to opponents, so grab an assault rifle and get blasting.

Block damage with a Decoy Grenade (100)

Decoy grenades create a clone of your player model when thrown, which then runs around to distract opponents. This item is most often found in Solo, Duos, or Squads mode, and once you find some (they come in stacks of three) you should track down an opponent then throw one in their direction so your decoy can block damage for you.

Dance at Lake Canoe, Camp Cod, and Rainbow Rentals (3)

Put on your dancing shoes, then head to the Fortnite Lake Canoe, Camp Cod, and Rainbow Rentals locations to get your boogie on.

Ride the Steamy Stacks, a Zipline, and use a Secret Passage in a single match (1)

If you're wondering how to Fortnite ride the Steamy Stacks, a Zipline, and use a Secret Passage in a single match then we've got the most efficient route marked out, starting from the pylon zipline south of the power station, passing through one of the Steamy Stacks, then gliding west to the roadside toilet secret passage by the bus stop.

Search Chests at Frenzy Farm or Steamy Stacks (10)

Both of these named locations are found toward the northeast corner of the island, so get to one of them as early in the match as you can and start hunting down chests – the further the location is from the battle bus route, the better.

How to unlock the Fortnite Meowscles SHADOW or GHOST style

How to unlock the Fortnite Meowscles SHADOW or GHOST style

You can access the Fortnite Meowscles SHADOW or GHOST style options by heading into the Agents menu from the main Battle Pass screen and choosing the third option for Meowscles. To unlock the style option you'll need to do the following three tasks:

  • Buy the Battle Pass
  • Reach Battle Pass Level 60
  • Complete 18 Meowscles Challenges

Once you've met all three requirements, you'll reveal Meowscles' final SHADOW mission and final GHOST mission. As with the previous agents, you'll have to select a side to complete the mission, which will award you with either the SHADOW or GHOST style, so make sure you choose carefully as you can't reverse this decision later:

  • Deliver fish to SHADOW (10)
  • Deliver fish to GHOST (10)
