Deal 500 damage with Sniper Rifles to opponents — 5 Battle Stars
The good thing about these sniper challenges is that sniper rifles do a lot of damage. Reaching the 500 mark will require several well-placed shots with the proper rifle. Once you find a sniper rifle and see enemies nearby, start building vertically to get a good angle for a clear shot. Keep repeating until you reach 500 damage.
Dance inside a holographic Tomato head, Durrr Burger head and on top of a giant Dumpling head — 5 Battle Stars
Two of the three spots to dance for this challenge are brand new in. You can find the holographic Tomato head in Mega Mall. It’s easy to see when you’re there, but on the map, go straight to the second “L” of the location name. Build a ramp and when inside the holographic head, do a little dance and get out because there will likely be a lot of players hanging around that area.
For the Durr Burger head, visit Neo Tilted just below the “TI” on the map. Try to visit this spot right at the start of the match since the Durr Burger is higher up, making it harder to reach.
The Giant Dumpling head is not in a new area, instead it’s at Lucky Landing. Like the Durr Burger head, stop down here at the beginning of a match to make things easier.
How to get 3 Legendary weapon eliminations — 10 Battle Stars
The trick with Legendary weapon eliminations is to actually find the Legendary weapons. It requires a special amount of luck to get them via a chest. Loot Carriers have a chance to drop them so keep an eye out for those. In the end, the best way to get a Legendary weapon is to survive the match long enough to get a supply drop, which is likely to contain one. Once you have that weapon, let loose on the first enemies you see.
Where to destroy 3 Loot Carriers in different matches — 5 Battle Stars
Loot Carriers are new additions from the v9.10 update. These floating caches contain weapons once they’re shot down. Where the Loot Carriers will appear is random. Players will need to check their maps to see when the letters of a named location turned gold to indicate that Loot Carriers are there. For this challenge, keep an eye out for when the nearest location goes gold and head over, but make sure you have a weapon to shoot them down.
How to land in Polar Peak, Lazy Lagoon, Salty Springs, The Block and Lonely Lodge — 5 Battle Stars
This is definitely the easiest of the challenges for the week. Just make a plane to land in these spots in a match and earn those Battle Stars with little resistance.
How to eliminate 3 opponents in Haunted Hills or Dusty Divot — 10 Battle Stars
Of the two locations, Dusty Divot is more ideal to eliminate opponents. The problem with Haunted Hills is its location, which is the northwest side of the map. Landing there would mean a rush to get a weapon and hopefully take down other opponents, but once the storm circle closes in, there are far fewer players hanging around. Dusty Divot, on the other hand, has plenty of people running through as most players tend to gravitate to the center throughout the match, especially when the storm closes in. Gear up in other locations, find a good vantage point and take out other players trying to run through the area.
Visit 5 Named Locations in a single match — 10 Battle Stars
If you last long enough in a match, you will likely visit five named locations. To quickly complete this challenge, start off in Junk Junction then visit Haunted Hills, The Block, Pleasant Park and Loot Lake. An alternative is to start at Frosty Flights, then go to Polar Peak, Shifty Shafts, Salty Springs and end at Dusty Divot.
New in Fortnite season 9 are Fortbytes, which are only available to Battle Pass owners. The collectibles are scattered across the island, but also unlockable by reaching certain tiers and gaining a designated amount of XP.

Like in previous seasons, Fortnite season 9 has a season-long set of tasks called Utopia Challenges, for Battle Pass owners. Tackling these special challenges requires the completion of all the weekly challenges throughout the season. The reward for all the work is the Utopia skin.
When players finish the weekly challenges, they’ll receive a new loading screen that hints at a secret Battle Star. Completing theunlocks the loading screen below. The clue to where to find the secret Battle Star is on the side of the minigun that gives the coordinates I5, I6, J5 and J6. This is a spot just south of Lonely Lounge, right before the green plains turn into the desert. The hidden Battle Star will appear only if a player who completed all challenges is within close proximity.
For, the unlocked loading screen doesn’t have a hint hidden in the image, but instead, it’s in the description of the screen. It says, “Last seen battling at Dino Park outhouse, these two can’t be stopped.” This’ll lead to the location of Fortbyte #13 and not a Battle Star for the week.
Once a player’s done with, a new loading screen will show a new Doggo skin. The hint for the Battle Star is in the drawing on the small wall that the dogs are sitting on. It leads to a stack of cars in Junk Junction and the secret Battle Star will appear when players come near it.
The week 4 Utopia Challenge loading screen was found by data miners in the v9.10 update, but it won’t be solved until the Fortnite season 9 week 4 challenges are completed.
Fortnite is available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, and Android and iOS devices.
