The Fortnite Week 1 Challenges launched back in September, and marked the debut slate of challenges for the newly launched Season 6 in Battle Royale. In this Fortnite Week 1 Challenges guide, we'll be walking you through how to complete all seven challenges for the week as easily as possible, so you can earn as many Battle Stars as possible, and level up your Battle Pass to unlock new skins and other cosmetics.
But if you instead need any other information on the latest season to hit Battle Royale, you’ll want to head over to our full Fortnite Season 6 guide. It’s on this main page that you can find all the information you need on the new season, including the full Battle Pass cost, as well as a complete list of the brand new Battle Pass skins.
Fortnite Season 6, Week 1 Challenges
Every week in Fortnite, seven brand new Weekly Challenges go live. Although the slate of challenges below launched on a Friday, all following Weekly Challenges will be launching every Thursday, so plan accordingly.
Just below, you can check out the full list of Fortnite Week 1 Challenges. As always, the first three challenges are available for all players to complete, even those who don't own the Season 6 Battle Pass, but the four challenges further down are exclusive to Battle Pass holders.
Fortnite Week 1 Free Challenges
- Pickup a Legendary item in different matches (3).
- Regain health from a Cozy Campfire (150).
- Stage 1: Search chests (3).
Fortnite Week 1 Battle Pass Challenges
- Apply shields (500).
- Stage 1: Land at Junk Junction.
- Dance under different Streetlight Spotlights.
- Eliminate opponents in different named locations (5).
And there you have it, the full list of Fortnite Week 1 Challenges, which are kicking off Season 6. Just below, we’ll break down how to complete each of these Challenges.
Pickup a Legendary Item in Different Matches
This Challenge is an easy one. All you need to do is pick up three Legendary items in total, spread out across three different matches of Fortnite Battle Royale. Keep in mind that your best bet for finding Legendary items is either in chests, or supply drops.
Regain Health From a Cozy Campfire
This one might be slightly tricky to complete, as there’s no location on the Battle Royale map where Cozy Campfires will always spawn. However if you do manage to get your hands on one, simply place it on a flat surface, and you’ll slowly regenerate health.
This might be the easiest challenge to complete for Fortnite Week 1. Simply find any shield items at all in Battle Royale, and all you need to do is apply 500 points of shields to your character, spread out across as many matches as necessary.
Dance Under Different Streetlight Spotlights
We've just compiled our complete guide to the location of every Streetlight Spotlight around the Fortnite Battle Royale map, and they're not the usual streetlights that you're used to seeing. For all the locations of the new spotlights, head over to our Fortnite Streetlight Spotlights guide.
Eliminate Opponents in Different Named Locations
For the final Challenge of Fortnite Week 1, you’ll have to head to any named location on the Battle Royale map. Once you’re there, you’ll need to eliminate five opposing players in total. Keep in mind though that this can be spread across as many games of Fortnite as you need.
Now that we’re all done with this Fortnite guide to completing all the Week 1 Challenges, you can head over to our additional guides on the game. There’s our Fortnite Season 6 skins guide, or our Fortnite Season 6 map locations guide, for a breakdown of all the brand new locations in the game.
