Day eight of the holiday event 14 Days of Fortnite is on. It brings the new challenge “Damage opponents with different weapons” and awards players with the uncommon emote Take the Elf.
This challenge can be completed in any standard or Limited Time Mode, which means Playground and Fortnite Creative are off the table to progress through this challenge.
To complete this, players will need to know all 22 guns in Fortnite, and remember which ones they’ve already used to damage opponents. Please note that you don’t have to get a kill with the weapons, just cause damage and switch.
What makes a weapon different from another is its name, not its rarity. This means that causing damage to an opponent with a green Pump Shotgun and following it up with a blue one will count as one weapon. But if you follow the first Pump Shotgun with a Tactical Shotgun, it will count as two since they have different names.
Weapons like the Assault Rifle and the Burst Assault Rifle vary in rarity from Common to Legendary and have different weapon models for the higher rarities, but they have the same name. Despite the models being different, dealing damage with any of them will count as a single weapon.
Finally, weapons of the same class are also fair game as long as they have different names. Dealing damage with an Assault Rifle and then dealing damage with a Burst Assault Rifle counts as two weapons.

Update Dec. 26 at 10:15am CT: This challenge apparently has a few glitches. Some weapons might not allow players to make progress in the challenge, while the Pickaxe and Damage Traps count. The core challenge remains the same. It’s unclear at the time of writing whether these are intentional or not.
