Fortnite Challenges Guide - Weekly and Daily Challenges Walkthrough, Challenge Reset Timer Explained

Here's everything you need to know about Fortnite Challenges, including the Daily Challenges reset timer, as well as a complete Weekly Challenges walkthrough.

Fortnite Challenges are one of the key parts of the game, that bring fresh and different tasks and rewards to the game each and every week, as long as you own the Fortnite Battle Pass. In this Fortnite Challenges guide, we’ll be walking you through all the Fortnite Weekly and Daily Challenges, as well as explaining the challenge reset timer that governs all the rewards and tasks you can undertake.

If you instead need anything else on Fortnite Battle Royale, including how to get to grips with the fast paced combat of the game, as well as how to find all the biggest and most powerful weapons scattered throughout the Battle Royale map, make sure to head over to our Fortnite guides hub.

Fortnite Challenges Guide

Firstly, what are the Fortnite Challenges that you can undertake? There are two types of Fortnite Challenges for players to take on in the game: Daily, and Weekly. Absolutely anyone can access the Daily Challenges (which reset every 24 hours), but if you want to undertake the more rewarding and difficult Weekly Challenges, you’ll need to purchase the Fortnite Battle Pass, through either the PSN Store or the Xbox Live Store.

The Daily Challenges, which can be accessed by anyone playing Fortnite, are typically quicker and easier to complete than the Weekly Challenges. Having said this, the Daily Challenges offer less XP and Battle Stars than if you were to undertake all the Weekly Challenges, hence why they’re easier and quicker to complete.

With Fortnite Season 4 having just gone live as of May 1, 2018, there are a bunch of brand new Daily and Weekly Challenges to access, provided you've shelled out for the new Battle Pass. For a full walkthrough of everything that's new in the season, head over to our Fortnite Season 4 guide.

Fortnite Daily Challenges Guide

The Daily Challenges in Fortnite, which can be accessed by players with and without the Battle Pass, are all combat orientated. There will always be three Daily Challenges available for you to undertake, and all three will task you with either killing a certain number of players with a particular weapon, or finishing within the top few players at the end of a match.

For each Fortnite Daily Challenge that you complete, you’ll be rewarded with 500 Season XP and five Battle Stars. This might be a lot less than what you’d earn from completing the Weekly Challenges, but the Daily Challenges are designed to be completed fairly quickly.

But what time will the Daily Challenges for all Fortnite players around the globe reset? The three challenges available to all players will reset at the times just below, listed by region:

  • 4 pm PST
  • 7 pm EST
  • 12 am BST
  • 1 am CEST

Fortnite Weekly Challenges Guide

These beefier challenges are exclusive to the Fortnite players who own the Battle Pass, and they’re easily divided up into three categories, which we’ve outlined just below:

  • Action Challenges - Quite possibly the easiest type of challenge in Fortnite, the action-based challenges will require you to use a certain weapon or tool a number of times. Keep in mind that this can be spread over as many matches as necessary, so you don’t need to, for example, kill fifty players will an assault rifle in a single game of Fortnite.
  • Location Challenges - These location challenges can be both difficult and time consuming, and challenge you to search in a very specific location shown to you by a treasure map. These challenges are by no means easy to complete, and you’ll have to start by tracking down the treasure map before you can even think about uncovering the treasure for yourself.
  • Chest Challenges - Finally, the chest-type challenges will require you to uncover and loot a certain amount of chests (usually seven) within a particular named location on the Battle Royale map. This can be incredibly difficult, as although the challenge is spread across as many games as you need, you’ll need to fend off other players who are also attempting to uncover chests for themselves.

Now that you know all the three types of Weekly Challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale, check out our complete list of every Weekly Challenge in the game to date, just below. Keep in mind that we’ll be updating this page every Thursday, when brand new challenges for the game go live.
