Another week has come and gone, which means that it’s time for a new set of challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale

As expected, Fortnite’s sixth season continues the trend of free and Battle Pass weekly challenges. New challenges will be released every week throughout the season, awarding players with XP and Battle Stars to help them rank up their Battle Pass.

The season six, week two challenges don’t seem too difficult, but they’ll most likely take a few games to complete. 

Free challenges

ActionReward
Visit all of the Corrupted Areas (7)5 Battle Stars, 500 XP
Use a Shadow Stone in different matches (3)5 Battle Stars, 500 XP
Stage 1: Deal damage with standard Assault Rifles to opponents (200)3 Battle Stars, 300 XP

This week’s free challenges primarily focus on two of the new elements added to Fortnite in season six. Players will need to visit all seven Corrupted Areas, which are located at the spots where the cube created runes during season five, and use one of the recently re-enabled Shadow Stones in three different games. 

The final free challenge for this week is a progressive one, with the first stage asking you to deal 200 damage with standard Assault Rifles. Stage two requires you to deal 200 damage with Burst Assault Rifles, and you’ll need to do the same amount of damage with Silenced Assault Rifles for the final stage.

Battle Pass challenges

ActionReward
Eliminate an opponent from at least 50m away (1)5 Battle Stars, 500 XP
Deal damage with Pistols to opponents (500)5 Battle Stars, 500 XP
SMG Eliminations (3)10 Battle Stars, 1,000 XP
Stage 1: Deal damage with Hunting Rifles to opponents (200)3 Battle Stars, 300 XP

Unlike previous weeks, these Battle Pass challenges won’t send you all over the map or ask you to dance in front of streetlights. You simply need to use a variety of weapons to complete all of them. 

Eliminating an opponent from at least 50 meters away should coincide with the progressive challenge, which first tasks you with dealing 200 damage with Hunting Rifles. Stage two of the progressive challenge forces you to deal that much damage with Bolt-Action Sniper Rifles, and the final stage requires 200 damage with Heavy Sniper Rifles.

You’ll also need to deal 500 damage with any pistol and get three kills with submachine guns. It doesn’t seem like these challenges are too daunting, but it could take several matches to find the required guns and rack up the necessary damage and kills.
