Developer Epic Games has changed how challenges work in Fortnite season 10, aka season X. Instead of daily challenges, there are Limited Time Mission Objectives that unlock a new objective every day. Weekly challenges are now simply the Battle Pass Missions, which, as the name states, are available for season 10 Battle Pass owners. Completing missions will unlock additional content and earn Battle Stars to reach tier 100 on the pass.
Another big change in Fortnite's new season is the inclusion of Prestige missions. Once a set of challenges is completed, players can choose to redo the tasks. Each mission will consist of a similar requirement, though at a higher difficulty.
Land on different bullseyes
This week, there are multiple bullseyes for players to land on. The big, red bullseyes are easy to see from the air, and it's just a matter of touching down on one to complete the challenge. See the map below for where to find the bullseyes.
Hit 50 weak points while harvesting
When you're harvesting materials from trees, cars and so on, you'll see weak spots indicated by blue circles with a red center on the object. Players have to move their crosshairs accordingly to hit these weak spots. Players will likely hit these accidentally when harvesting, but focusing on these weak points will help speed up this challenge.
Get an elimination with a sniper rifle
Simple enough. Find a sniper rifle and take out another player.
Hit easy firing range target
There are four firing ranges on the island, with multiple targets at different distances from the indicated starting position. Find one, stand at the platform near the firing range sign, and for this challenge shoot the closest one. The map below shows the locations of the firing ranges.
Complete the skydiving course over Fatal Fields after jumping from the Battle Bus
Above Fatal Fields is a series of glowing rings. For this challenge, players will have to fall through the rings to complete the skydiving course. One way to try completing this task in a single go is to redeploy the glider in between rings to easily maneuver from one to the next.
Hit 10 headshots
Headshots are self-explanatory. How to complete this challenge will depend on weapon choice. A player can get multiple headshots with an SMG up close or eliminate players with headshots from a distance using a sniper rifle.
Destroy 2 loot carriers from 50m away
were added in season 9 and can be found in Hot Spots, which are points of interests with gold lettering at the start of the match. These flying weapon caches are found only in these locations, and when destroyed will release weapons and items. An important part of this challenge is that players will have to keep their distance because destroying a Loot Carrier up close won't count.
Bullseye prestige challenges
Hit five consecutive weak points while harvesting
As explained above, weak points are blue targets that appear when harvesting. This task requires players to hit five in a row. Ideally, players will want to pick a larger object such as a wall or shipping container and take their time when harvesting to make sure they hit the weak points.
Destroy loot carriers from 100m away
This'll take a keen eye. Land at a hot spot and look for a carrier. Judging 100m isn't easy, so be generous with your distance. Players will want a sniper rifle or an assault rifle to shoot down a carrier from that far off.
Hit 3 headshots in a single match
Again, completing this challenge will depend on weapon choice. Getting up close to enemies and using an SMG could result in multiple headshots at a cost of putting yourself at risk. Using a sniper rifle from a distance will be safer but more difficult.
Hit hard firing range target
Visit any of the four ranges and shoot the target farthest away. Make sure to bring a sniper rifle.
Complete the skydiving course over Dusty Depot after jumping from the Battle Bus
Like the other course, you'll find it above Dusty Depot. Take your time by redeploying your glider to make sure you hit all the rings.
Hit 3 headshots with a Scoped weapon
Assault rifles and sniper rifles tend to have a scope. Since players will be using a scope, it's best to keep a distance in order to get a headshot.
Land a Bottle Flip on a target near a giant fish, llama, or pig
Unlike the other challenges for week 10, this task request players to reach a certain Battle Pass tier in order to complete it. The Bottle Flip is a toy unlocked at Tier 37. Once unlocked, players will need to equip the toy before a match and head to three spots that can be found at the map below. Once at these spots, look for the giant fish, llama or pig and activate the toy to complete the challenge.
Ready or Not challenges
These missions will unlock over the course of the next seven days. Each day will have a new mission to complete. Rewards for completing these tasks include experience points, Battle Stars and a loading screen that hints to a hidden Battle Star.
- Search 3 Supply Drops
- 5 SMG Eliminations
- Land at Polar Peak or Moisty Palms in 3 different matches
- Deal 500 damage with Sniper Rifles to opponents

- Search 5 Chests in a single match
- Visit Dusty Depot and Pleasant Park in the same match

Welcome to Gotham City challenges
started Saturday and has its own set of Batman-themed challenges that are available until Oct. 1. The reward for completing all the tasks is the Catwoman glider.
Deal 250 damage to opponents with an Explosive Batarang
Explosive Batarangs are one of the two new items available during the Fortnite X Batman event. Batarangs can be found all across the island and act as grenades. Find some and throw them at other players to rack up the damage for this task.
Light up three different Bat Signals outside of Gotham City
Players can visit the mini-Gotham City to see an activated Bat Signal, but for this challenge, they'll need to find the other signals found outside of the new zone. Get close to one to see the activation prompt and activate three to complete the challenge. See the map below on where to find them.
Use a Batman Grapnel Gun in three different matches
Like the Explosive Batarang, the Grapnel Gun is found across the map during this event. Batman's trademark item will zip players to whatever spot the grappling hook connects to.
Defuse Joker gas canisters found in three different named locations
It wouldn't be a proper Batman crossover without the Joker. Gas canisters decorated by the Joker are found in the various points of interest on the island. Keep your ears open for the beeping that lets you know one is nearby.
Deal any damage to opponents within 30 seconds of using a Batman Grapnel Gun
A simple task. Use the Grapnel Gun and make sure to take a shot at any players nearby.
Light a Bat Signal, use a Batman Grapnel Gun and deal any damage with an Explosive Batarang
Another straightforward challenge. The only difficult part is to get both the Grapnel Gun and Explosive Batarang in a match, since they're hard-to-find items.
Secret Battle Stars
Rewards for completing challenges include new loading screens that offer a hint to a hidden Battle Star located somewhere on the island. These stars won't appear unless you've completed all the challenges for the week.
The hint in this screen is the scratching above the character's head, which shows D2, D3, E2, E3. This represents a particular spot on the map, which is to the southeast of the Block. Look for a patch of dirt on a hill, and if you've completed all of the challenges for week 1, the hidden Battle Star will appear.
The week 2 loading screen's hint is in the top left of the image. The knife and fork represent the holes in the ground with similar shapes found between Fatal Fields and Salty Springs. The hidden Battle Star is between the two holes and will appear once all of the week 2 challenges are done.
Week 3's loading screen features the Leftovers, and the secret to finding this Battle Star is the bus in the background.
On the truck is the mascot of the Softdeez ice cream shop. The shop is found across the street from the racetrack in Paradise Palms. If you completed all the challenges, the star will appear.
The clue in the week 4 loading screen is a little hard to see unless you increase the size of the image.
The stone at the right corner of the image shows four coordinates: I2, I3, J2 and J3. This spot is to the northeast of Sunny Steps. Walking to that location with all of the week's challenges completed will trigger the appearance of the hidden Battle Star.
The week 5 loading screen is another hard-to-see clue. The secret is in the green slime on the left, which reads E78 and F78, which translates to the map coordinates of E7, E8, F7 and F8.
Head to the spot on the map below, and if you've completed all of the week's challenges, a hidden Battle Star will appear.
Week 6's Battle Star clue is a little easier to see in comparison to previous weeks. In the loading screen, there is a faint Battle Star on the pier. Head to the small pond at Fatal Fields and the secret Battle Star will appear once you're close to the pier if all of the week's challenges have been completed.
In the week 7 loading screen, the clue to the hidden Battle Star is really hard to see. In the background is a reflection of a taco. This is tied to the new taco restaurant in Greasy Grove. Go inside once all the week's challenges are done and the star will show up.
The week 8 loading screen goes back to hard-to-see coordinates. The llama head gargoyles protruding from the building have G2, G3, H2 and H3 etched on them.
The hidden star is near pools of water to the west of Sunny Steps. See the map below for where the Battle Star should appear if you completed all the week's challenges.
For week 9, Epic introduced a new limited-time mode called the Combine. The unlockable loading screen for the week is inspired by the mode and has a clue at the top of the image.
In the image is a tomato head next to the down arrow. This refers to the Tomato Temples of Fortnite season 5. While those are long gone, there is one remaining temple to the west of Pressure Plant, and that's where the secret Battle Star is.
