With Fortnite’s recently launched season six, Epic Games is continuing with weekly challenges. Every season introduces ten weeks filled with objectives, ranging from following a treasure map to getting eliminations with a certain type of weapon.
This week seems to be no different, and we are here to guide you through Fortnite's Season 6 Week 4 challenges.

What are Fortnite challenges?
In Fortnite, there are two types of challenges: Daily and Weekly.
Dailies revolve around getting kills, sometimes with specific types of weapons and placing high in a certain mode. Daily challenges reward you with both Battle Stars, used to progress your battle pass, and experience which is used to level up and unlock outfit styles for Battle Pass skins.
The Battle Pass is available every season for 950 V-Bucks, which equals just under ten pounds. There is also a free Battle Pass, which not to anyone’s surprise, isn't nearly as cool as the paid one.
Alongside Daily Challenges, you’ll find Weekly Challenges, which reward you with Battle Stars. The Battle Pass has 100 tiers and you’ll need 1000 Battle Stars to get to the top.
Assuming you don’t buy Battle Pass tiers, which is also an option, doing weeklies is the next best thing to make sure you won’t be laughed at by your friends for not reaching tier 100. You can earn 50 Battle Stars a week for finishing these.
There are seven challenges every week, with some harder than dailies, often including finding a spot on the map, with the only lead being a vaguely drawn treasure map, like “Follow the treasure map found in Retail Row”.
Epic also recently introduced staged challenges, which just as the word suggests, requires you to finish the challenge in a certain order. The harder ones will often net you with more Battle Stars. Three out of the seven challenges will also be available to people who do not own a Battle Pass, to finish the free Battle Pass section.
Daily challenges release every day at 1:00 AM (BST), while the weekly challenges appear every Thursday at 2:00 PM (BST). This is obviously subject to change so keep an eye out for updates from us and Epic Games.
Fortnite S6 Week 4 challenge list
Another week, another set of seven challenges for Fortnite players to finish. Just like last week, there is a fair mix of hard and easy challenges. And just like last week, we are here to help out. Find out more below:
Free Battle Pass Challenges
- Use a Port-a-Fort or Port-a-Fortress in different matches, five times
- Search an Ammo Box in different Named Locations, seven times
- Ring the doorbell of a house with an opponent inside in different matches, three times (HARD)
Premium Battle Pass Challenges
- Land at Greasy Grove, once
- Dance on top of a Clock Tower, once
- Get a score of 3 or more at different Shooting Galleries, five times (HARD)
- Eliminate opponents near any of the Corrupted Areas, three times (HARD)
The ‘Ring the Doorbell’ challenge
This seems to be one of the most difficult challenges so far, mainly because you not only have to locate a house with a doorbell, but ring it with an enemy player inside. While many houses do not have a doorbell, be on the lookout for houses with Halloween decoration, as they will most likely have a doorbell ready for ringing.
We have been able to confirm multiple in Pleasant Park, Salty Springs and Paradise Palms so far.
The ‘Clock Tower’ challenge
This one is fairly easy, if one can find the Clock Tower. Players who regularly drop in Tilted Towers should have no issues finding it. You can find the exact location in the screenshot below.
The ‘Shooting Galleries’ Challenge
Shooting is something everybody is accustomed to in Fortnite, however, finding all the galleries to complete the challenge is something else.
Luckily, we have come across five of them so far, and we’ve noted the location of each below.
The ‘Corrupted Areas’ challenge
The corrupted areas are areas that are marked purple on your map, but just in case that’s not clear enough, we’ve marked them all for you below.
Don’t forget to eliminate your opponents in or around them and watch out for the ones that harbour the power of the Shadow Stones, they might be invisible!
Fortnite S6 Week 4 Secret Banner location
Once again we find that Epic has hidden a Secret Banner, unlike last week’s Secret Battle Star. It seems they have chosen to alternate between the two to keep things interesting in Season Six.
The location for this week’s banner can be found north-west of Junk Junction, on the giant metal Llama. Don’t forget that you’ll need to finish all of this week’s challenges in order to see and collect the banner.
Completing all challenges this season, including the secret challenges, will earn you a legendary mystery item. Judging from the below image, this will most likely be a character skin.
