One of the most interesting features of the Fortnite phenomenon is the Challenges of the Week system, which allows the player to try to achieve certain goals in order to conquer skins and other items. With this mechanic, Epic Games' Battle Royale - available for free on PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and the Fortnite Mobile version for Android and iPhone (iOS) is always renewed for both the most dedicated fan and the player who just arrived at the party. Learn in our tutorial all about the challenges of Fortnite and discover the operation of this system.

The system of the Challenges of the Week stands out among the mechanics of the popular Fortnite

Challenges of the Week

Each week, Fortnite releases new sets of challenges, known as Challenges of the Week. They are renewed every seven days throughout each season of the game. Some of them can be as simple as defeating an opponent using pistols (challenge of the third week of season four) or as bizarre as dancing on top of a clock tower (fourth week of the sixth season).

After the match, one of the seven Challenges of the Week was fulfilled, releasing five Battle Stars

In the example above, the player was able to collect one item from each rarity during a match (Fortnite items such as weapons are divided into colors that determine their value: gray is common; green, unusual, blue is rare, purple are epic and gold are legendary). That way he got five Battle Stars.

In addition to the Weekly Challenges, you can get stars through the level (called Season Level in the game), by completing the Daily Challenges (which appear on the Lobby tab) and with V-Bucks (the virtual currency of the game, purchased with real money). For every ten stars, the player acquires a new Category.

After getting the Battle Stars, the player went up to Category Two, enabling the GG Snowman Spray

Each level in Fortnite grants the player two Battle Stars, except in levels ending in five and zero, in which five and ten stars respectively are obtained. However, the challenges are separated into two types: silver and gold. The player can perform the silver challenges for free, while the gold ones make the required Battle Pass required.

Battle Pass

Still in the example illustrated by the image, the player went up a Category, and released the Spray of Snowman GG. If he signed the gold version of the Battle Pass, he would have since the beginning of the game the ZĂȘnite and Lince costumes and the EXP Strengthening Combo (50% more per game during the whole season), as well as the Golden Challenges released.

As a Free Pass user (silver and free), the Category acquired by him did not release the 10% Personal EXP Strengthening, nor the 5x Free Categories (for next season). If he had the Battle Pass (gold), he would have gotten all those bonuses.

The player can buy the Battle Pass in the Fortnite store, inside the game itself

The Battle Pass guarantees unique rewards, including gestures, costumes, mascots, picks, loading screens and other surprises. Skins (called in the Envelope game) for vehicles, weapons and clothes are also released. With the gold version of Fortnite, the player receives a new prize whenever they level up, totaling 100 categories and more than 100 rewards.

In short, the Challenges of the Week and Silver Categories (Free Pass) are free for the player, while the Golden (Battle Pass) are paid.

Just stay tuned. Some benefits expire at the end of each season. While keeping cosmetic items permanently, the EXP strengthening ends and you will no longer be entitled to the rewards when you complete weekly challenges of the season that has passed.
