Season 10 of Fortnite started today, and with it comes a new Battle Pass and all the chaos that entails, including giant mech suits. But one change leaves free players a little short-changed. Weekly challenges are now locked behind the paid Battle Pass.
Previously, free players could still do daily and weekly challenges to build up points towards new cosmetics. These weekly challenges were linked to completing tasks under special conditions like playing as a certain character. Now, those are part of the new set of challenges under an Event tab, and access to them is locked behind the paywall of the Battle Pass, without a free offering for players who don't buy in.
It's part of an overall change that's still somewhat in flux for Season 10 of Fortnite. Dailies disappeared but are set to return as Limited Time Missions, according to a post on the Fortnite subreddit. These will essentially count as Dailies and not require a Battle Pass to complete. Either way, the loss of weeklies means less progression available for those who don't want to immediately buy in to the Battle Pass.
Fortnite Season 10 also drops in some mechs, which seem pretty awesome. Doubtless they will elicit some complaints of being too good, but counter-argument: giant robots are cool. It's called the B.R.U.T.E., and it has missiles.
