Fortnightmares was definitely a fun change of pace from Fortnite: Battle Royale as Halloween approached, but now it's time to get back to playing the game without zombies chasing everyone around. You can still get your zombie fix by playing the Team Terror limited time mode, but thankfully, it's no longer a requirement for every game mode.

Now that Fortnite is back to normal, there was a glimmer of hope that the challenges this week would keep the game interesting, but now that they're live, it looks like it's going to be a grind.

If you haven't finished last week's challenges, check out our guide here.

Here are this week's challenges:

How to search seven ammo boxes in a single match

This is a challenge we've had before. On the surface, it seems easy enough, but I've had trouble finding seven ammo boxes in the past before the storm started closing in. Your best bet here is drop in to a named location and focus on it for a few games until you get it. 

How to deal headshot damage to opponents

If you like to use sniper rifles, you're probably going to fly through this challenge. But if you're bad with snipers, like me, the best way to complete this one is to let it happen naturally over the course of the week using the guns you're comfortable with. 500 damage is a lot, but even if you're not a crack shot, you're bound to to get headshots at least some of the time.

How to do stage 1: Deal damage to opponents in a single match

This one is pretty dull, but the bright side is that this challenge and the one before it work together so if you are a good sniper you have the opportunity to take out two birds with one stone.


Those damage dealing challenges will be made a lot easier with the new Heavy AR that dropped in this week's patch.

How to do stage 1: Destroy trees

I thought this one was a placeholder when the challenges were initially leaked because destroying trees just isn't very fun and destroying 50 trees is going to take you awhile. If you're like most players, though, you probably destroy trees a lot in the beginning of every game so it shouldn't take too long to finish out stage 1 just playing normally.

How to skydive through floating rings

We haven't seen the floating rings in awhile and they're always a fun challenge as you drop into games. The only problem here is it's near impossible to clear more than three rings in one drop, so it's going to take you several games to get all 20. 

How to do stage 1: Consume 5 apples

This one is also pretty boring (like destroying trees), but it's going to be more challenging than you think. The problem is you can only consume apples once you've already taken damage. Presumably, if this staged challenge sticks with a consume theme you'd probably move on to mushrooms after this, which would be easier to complete

How to eliminate opponents in Pleasant Park

This one is pretty straightforward. You're just going to want to drop in to Pleasant Park, gear up, then go on the attack. While it might take you a few games to complete it, you should definitely try to start with this one right away while everyone is dropping into Pleasant Park to complete the challenge.
