The fine folks at Epic Games have released the Week 9 Epic Challenges. Although there is no consensus theme, the challenges are fun and exciting. As usual, each challenge is worth 20K xp. You have the entire Season to complete the Epic challenges. The challenges are broken into two tiers again. You have to complete the prior challenge in each tier, before the next challenge will unlock. Enjoy!

Tier 1

  • Shakedown an IO Guard

This challenge is pretty straightforward. In order to complete this challenge, make sure that you do not eliminate all the IO Guards, otherwise all the IO Guards will disintegrate. Our tip is to simply knock down one (1) IO Guard, shake him/her down and the quest will be completed.

  • Find a hidden bunker

As you may have noticed, there are some hidden bunkers located throughout the Fortnite map. In order to complete this quest, go to the area a little southeast of Retail Row. Destroy the shrubbery and you will find the hidden bunker.

  • Find the crashed plane’s black box

There are a few crashed plane located on the Fortnite map. However, in order to complete this quest, you will need to locate the crashed plane that is South of Coral Castle. Go to the middle part of the crashed plane and you will locate the “black box.” Interact with the “black box” and the quest will be complete.

Tier 2

  • Deal damage while in water (200)

The first challenge of Tier 2, requires the player to deal damage while in water. We found the easiest way to complete this quest is to load into a game of Team Rumble. Hop into the water and just start dealing damage to your opponents. Deal 200 damage and the quest will be completed.

  • Emote at stone statues

We have found two locations that have “stone statues” that work to complete the challenge. The first set are located at the entrances to the Colosseum. The second set are located in Coral Castle along the pathway. Choose either set, bust out an emote and you will complete this quest!

  • Ride the Steamy Stacks

Probably the easiest of this week’s quests. Head over to Steamy Stacks and jump into one of the two (2) stacks to “ride” it. The quest will be completed and you will be awarded an easy 20K xp.

  • Deal damage to a Loot Shark (500)

We have found that in order for Loot Sharks to have a higher chance of loading you should play in Solo, Duo, Trio, or Squad Mode (sorry no Team Rumble). Head over to Sharky Shell and load into a motorboat and/or grab a few weapons and plenty of ammunition. Then go shark hunting. Deal 500 damage and you can mark this quest complete as well!

That’s it for the Week 9 Epic Challenges in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5. Until next time, have a great day and please definitely remember to always be safe!
