We’ve just started a new season of Fortnite, ushering in a dark and creepy age to the usually bright and cheerful map. The cube is now suspending an island in the air, Shadow Stones can transform people into near-invisible entities, and there’s even a haunted castle. As is always the case with Fortnite, each and every week, players get a bunch of weekly challenges to earn Battle Stars to level up their Battle Pass. It’s all part of the grind to get those sweet cosmetics. So we thought we’d give Epic Games a helping hand by highlighting a number of Fortnite Season 6 challenges we’re no doubt going to get this season.
Fortnite Season 6 Challenges We’re Bound to Get This Season
Use the Grappler
Alright, alright, the grappler may have released in Fortnite Season 5, but we’ve still yet to see a challenge based around people using it in some way or another. The grappler is a pretty handy tool to have in your Fortnite inventory, allowing you to quickly zip your way up enemy structures, buildings on the map, or just cover ground fast when you’re trying to escape from the storm.
With the recent vaulting of the Bounce Pad (RIP, sweet prince), it makes sense for Epic Games to push the grapple gun as the best traversal tool in the game. Especially considering without the bounce pad, there’s not really another way to quickly scale enemy structures in a fight. Though it’s been in the game for a while now, it’d be a neat way all the same to familiarize newcomers and less experienced players with the tool.
Exactly what form a grappler challenge would take in Fortnite Season 6, we’re not entirely sure. Perhaps picking one up in a specific number of different matches. Or maybe something requiring players to travel a set amount of distance while using it.
This is one of those kinds of Fortnite Season 6 challenges that’d be perfect for just five Battle Stars. The kind that are pretty simple as long as the RNG gods are smiling down on you when you’re opening chests. Plus, using the grapple gun is pretty damn fun anyway, so it’s a win-win for everyone.
Eliminate Enemies in Shadow Form
Fortnite Season 6 officially ushered in a new, dark age for the map. All of those glowing spots that the cube had left at the beginning of last season have now been transformed into Corrupted Areas. Three chests conveniently lie at the center of each one, but it’s the Shadow Stones that players can find here that are prime for Season 6 challenges material.
If the datamined week 2 challenges are, in fact, true, we’ll already have to visit these Corrupted Areas and consume Shadow Stones. But if Epic changed it around in a future set of weekly challenges, we could have one of the trickiest and more exciting challenges of recent seasons to complete.
As soon as you consume one of these Shadow Stones, players become invisible when stationary, and are essentially a blur when moving. They can’t use weapons, but they can move faster, jump higher, and take less fall damage. This has led to many players using Shadow Stones as an ambush tool, creeping up on unsuspecting players before shotgunning them in the back.
So it makes perfect sense to make one of the Fortnite Season 6 challenges one to eliminate a specific number of enemies in Shadow Form. It’d be difficult, sure, but it’d more than likely really mix up the way games play out. If eliminations are a little too tricky, it could always be a ‘Deal Damage to Shadow Form Enemies.’ Either way, we need to get shooting those shadowy opponents already… and be rewarded for it with sweet, sweet Battle Stars.
