What does this week have in-store for us?

Fortnite's Chapter 2 Season 4 is live, and it's time for a fresh batch of weekly challenges!

Last week's challenges had players wielding Storm's Whirlwind Blast.

Week 9's challenges are very straight forward and make a change from the previous Marvel-themed challenges thrown at us.

This week, players will be dealing damage, collecting rings and riding Silver Surfer's Board.

Here are week 9's challenges.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 Week 9 Challenges Release Date

The new challenges will arrive on the 22nd of October 2020 at roughly 2-3pm.

The Week 8 challenges are now live in-game, here's what you'll be doing:

  • Search 7 chests at Holly Hedges (25,000 XP)
  • Get 3 eliminations at Slurpy Swamp (25,000 XP)
  • Collect 1 floating ring at Steamy Stacks (25,000 XP)
  • Use Silver Surfer's Board in a single match (25,000 XP)
  • Land at Sharky Shell and finish Top 25 (25,000 XP)
  • TBC (25,000 XP)
  • TBC (50,000 XP)
  • Deal 500 damage to opponents at Sweaty Sands (25,000 XP)

There is an incredible amount of experience to unlock here, totalling 225,000XP if you complete every challenge.

This would get you a long way on your Battle Pass, helping to unlock new characters, emotes, and weapon skins.

What's more, completing a total of 10 challenges from Week 9 and 10 combined will unlock an alternate Mystique skin, so it's worth going out of your way to complete them.

How To Complete Season 4 Week 9 Challenges

Search Chests At Holly Hedges

This is a relatively easy challenge, requiring you to head to the Holly Hedges POI in Fortnite.

Located to the north-east of the map, south of Sweaty Sands, you may struggle to do this in one go due to there potentially not being enough chests and competition from opponents.

Your best bet is to jump into squads or solos to ensure you are competing with fewer teammates and even opponents.

It will no doubt be a popular drop place, to begin with, but will die down as the week goes on.

Head to B5 on the map where the small town is located.

Eliminations At Slurpy Swamps

Another simple challenge, but can be dependent on where the final circle lands.

Slurpy Swamps is located to the south-east of the map, but it's a very popular drop location and you'll usually find a lot of circles heading that way.

It doesn't pop up very often in Team Rumble, so you may have to be patient.

Head to C6 or C7, get on top of a building and search for a chest and a rifle to quickly take out loot-less enemies.

It may take you a few tries to do, so don't focus too heavily on getting this challenge done from the get-go and focus on other things; it'll come naturally.

STORMING: A whirlwind is blowing across Fortnite

Collect 1 floating ring at Steamy Stacks

Steamy Stacks is located in the very top-right of the map between G2 and H2.

Drop into a game of Team Rumble and head for this location.

The floating ring is usually located on top of a building and given the location, we expect it to be in one of the stacks.

Use Silver Surfer's Board in a single match

You may be able to do this by getting the ability in the Marvel Knockout LTM as it gives you random abilities in a 2v2 arcade fighting mode.

Otherwise, head to any Quinjet location and shoot down the Stark Drones, these will drop random Mythic abilities and hopefully the Silver Surf Board.

Land at Sharky Shell and finish Top 25

Sharky Shell is often overlooked as a location because it's tucked away at the very top-left of the map; above Coral Castle.

All you need to do is drop into this location in a regular BR match (solos, duos and squads) then play it slow and cautious.

Wait for players to quickly eliminate each other and you should complete it easily.

Squads is probably the easier mode to do it in as there are far less teams to compete with.

Deal 500 damage to opponents at Sweaty Sands

A simple enough challenge, but due to the location, it can be tough to do if the final circle does not finish here or if no-one is visiting the location.

If you play Team Rumble enough times, more than likely the battle bus drops will allow a mix of both teams to drop in this location. Or the final circle will push you here.

Get on top of a building and search for a chest and a rifle to quickly take out loot-less enemies.

It may take you a few tries to do, so don't focus too heavily on getting this challenge done from the get-go and focus on other things; it'll come naturally.
