QUESTS: Epic Quests are purple

The game has many quests for players to partake in, like the Epic Quests, which have several goodies for you to unlock.


Epic Quests are similar to Legendary Quests in that they require more difficult tasks to be completed to earn XP.

These are indicated in your Quests tab with a purple color code.

Unlike Legendary Quests, Epic Quests usually do not play a role in a Season's story.

While some Epic Quests may progress in stages, more than one Epic Quest for a particular week is available at once.

However, unlike the Legendary Quests, Epic Quests can also be linked to the Battle Pass, which is a paid purchase, meaning that you can actually get exclusive items from these kinds of challenges upon completion.

Fortnite is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
