‘Fortnite’ Season 4, Week 9 Challenges Guide

Season 4’s week-nine challenges are live in “Fortnite,” and that means new ways to earn Battle Stars and experience. By collecting more Battle Stars and upping their tier (up to a season maximum of 100), players can earn limited-time rewards like cosmetic outfits and XP boosts.

Weekly challenges are available for anyone who purchases the Season 4 Battle Pass, which can be had for 950 in-game “V-Bucks,” or roughly $10. Here’s what to do this week:

  • Deal Damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents (500 damage)
  • Search Chests in Moisty Mire (7)
  • Use a Shopping Cart
  • Visit the center of Named Locations in a Single Match (4)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Haunted Hills (Hard)
  • Shotgun Eliminations (Hard; 4)
  • Eliminate opponents in Anarchy Acres (Hard; 3)

To find the hidden Battle Star, head to the spot marked on this handy all-in-one cheat sheet by Reddit user thesquatingdog; there’s no need to waste time looking for landmarks or an in-game treasure map. The cheat sheet also pinpoints the center of each named location scattered across the island. When it comes time to plunder chests in Moisty Mire, consult this local map of the area to find the various spawn points. As always, remember to finish out the match you’re in once you’ve completed a challenge in order to be sure you get credit for it.

Hard challenges will award players 10 Battle Stars; the rest will usually award five. Complete any four of these tasks to unlock the weekly featured Battle Pass reward. Finish all of them to earn as many Battle Stars as possible — which will give you maximum value, in terms of loot, for your Battle Pass.
