Here's all the information you need about how to complete the full list of seven Fortnite Week 6 challenges:

Deal damage at Rickety Rig (500)

Rickety Rig is in the southwest corner of the map, and thanks to the shifting tides there are now a number of islands to choose from. This challenge doesn't specify damage needs to be dealt to opponents, so it's possible loot sharks and marauders may also count, but if you're struggling to hit the target then play Team Rumble until a circle forms in this area.

Eliminations at Pleasant Park (3)

Pleasant Park is now back on dry land, making it a bit easier to navigate. As with the previous challenge, if you need some help getting three eliminations here then enter Team Rumble and hope the live area closes around here.

Land at The Authority and finish Top 25 (1)

The Authority in the centre of the map is a spicy location full of Henchmen, so it's not an idea place to land – either grab some weapons from the nearest chest or get out of there quickly on a zipline. Finishing Top 25 isn't too tricky if you stay out of sight, though you can make this easier by dropping into a Squads match as you'll be in the Top 25 as soon as the first few teams are eliminated.

Catch a weapon at Stack Shack (1)

Once you arrive on the tiny island housing Fortnite Stack Shack, you'll need to grab a rod so you can fish a weapon out of the sea, and we've got all the details for how to do this in our separate guide.

Search Chests (10)

With no geographical restrictions here, you can search chests anywhere on the island to count towards this, so you should wrap it up quickly.

Search Chests [Rec: 4 Players] (100)

This challenge is trickier for solo players, as you need to be in a squad of four players for chests you collect to count. Helpfully, you can jump into a Squads match with 'Fill' enabled to find other players to team up with, and tackling this target together makes the 100 total less daunting.

Search Ammo Boxes at Salty Springs (7)

There aren't that many houses in Salty Springs, so make sure you search them thoroughly including the attics to find as many ammo boxes as you can, and don't forget the bus stop plus the gas station rear building.
