Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Fortniters! We have just passed the holiday of giving and now we are headed into a brand new year of brand new things. One thing that stays the same? Fortnite weekly challenges for the Battle Royale mode. Let’s dive right into this week!
- Use an X-4 Stormwing plane in five different matches
An easy one, if you can get to a plane first. On the plus side there are plenty of places they spawn so getting one should not be too much of a feat. You also just have to use it, you do not have to get any eliminations or anything. Remember though, you will have to find one in five different matches so maybe try to do a few things in each match rather than grab a plane and crash to your death?
- Launch Three Fireworks
There are fourteen of these surrounding the island in an almost ring. The only bad thing is that once someone has fired one off, that is it for the match. I have not seen anywhere that you will have to do it all in one match, but it is not clear in any of the descriptors.
- Eliminate three opponents at Expedition Outpost (Hard)
As I always say, another one that is hard for me and probably not many else. My skills with kills are just not there. This one is simple. Go to Expedition Outpost and get in a shootout. Oh, and win the shootout I guess.

- (Stage Challenge) Destroy Chairs, Wooden Utility Poles, and Wooden Pallets
Stage Challenge number one! Grab your pickaxe and let ‘er rip! The first part involves taking out eighty chairs (although what they did to you who knows). I have yet to find out what number of utility poles or pallets you will have to destroy, but once I get a lot of smashing done I will try and let you know.
- Deal 100 damage to opponents with your pickaxe
A return of an oldie that also requires you to grab your pickaxe. This one does not require skill, but it does require patience. The easiest way to finish this one is to drop into an area that draws a crowd (Tilted Towers makes the most sense), head for the area that the most people are landing (Like a chest in the open) and start swinging. You should be able to get a few cracks in before they find a gun.
- Eliminate three opponents in Happy Hamlet or Pleasant Park (Hard)
Another elimination challenge, yippee! This one is a bit easier with two different named locations to get your kills in. There really is not much more to say than that.
- (Stage Challenge) Search for the letter “O”, “S”, “M”, and “N” and use them to fix the NOMS sign in Retail Row (Hard)
Stage Challenge number two! Apparently Epic cannot be bothered to fix the stuff they messed up in season five so we are stuck doing it. Go out to these locations in this order, Pleasant Park, Wailing Woods, Dusty Divot, and under the frozen lake. If you look around those places in that order for those letters and return to Retail Row to the NOMS store in five different matches you will be able to grab a few battle stars and finish your weekly challenges!
There is your weekly list! How do the challenges look to you? Are they too much of the same or are they easier to finish because of it? Drop down to our comments below and let us know!
