Stage 1: Visit Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match
This is an easy one as you can land at Salty Springs first and then just take a quadcrasher and go to Fatal Fields from there.
Stage 2: Visit Haunting Hills and Tilted Towers in a single match
You can complete this challenge by first dropping to Haunting Hills, then find some glider redeploy and then just fly to Tilted Towers right away.
Stage 3: Visit Frosty Flights and Loot Lake in a single match
This can be a bit tricky to complete as these two locations are pretty far from each other. One way to complete is that you land at Frosty Flights first. Then, you can go to a shack near Frosty Flights, where there will be a baller or a quadcrasher or a drift board. You can use any of them to quickly rotate to Loot Lake and complete the challenge.
Stage 1: Destroy cacti in the desert
This is an easy but somewhat a time-consuming challenge. You just have to visit the area around Paradise Palms and harvest some wood from cacti.
Stage 2: Search ammo boxes in the snow biome
This is an easy challenge. You just have to visit the area around Polar Peak and loot some ammo boxes in the snow area.
Stage 3: Search chests in the jungle
This is an easy but somewhat a time-consuming challenge. You just have to visit the area around Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps and loot some chests.
Place different trap slot items in a single match
This is another easy challenge which you can complete with great ease. You just have to acquire two trap items like Launchpad, Spike Traps, Turrets, etc. and just place them anywhere you want.
Search where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map loading screen
This is a tricky challenge as it requires you to know the Fortnite map quite well. Well, even if you don’t know much about various places on Fortnite map, we will guide you to where the place is. For locating the place, you have to look at the loading screen with the treasure map and the magnifying glass.
If you look closely, when you look at the place highlighted with the magnifying glass, you can see some kind of statue in it. Another thing to notice here is that this location is near Polar Peak as displayed in the treasure map. So, if you know the area around Polar Peak well, you should know that there is a place below Polar Peak on its south side where there are 3 statues of some soldiers. You can check the location in the map given below.
Well, you just got to go there now and search below the main statue with the chests and boom, your challenge is completed.
Search chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields
This is the easiest challenge of all. You just got to land at Sunny StTeps or FatalFieldss and open up some chests.
Deal headshot damage to opponents
The time taken in this challenge depends completely on your skills. You just have to get a gun and get some headshots. The best way to complete this challenge is to get a Heavy Sniper and get two headshots. There you go, your challenge is completed.
Get an elimination with an SMG, Pistol, and a Sniper Rifle
To complete this challenge, you just have to pick up an SMG, a Pistol and a Sniper Rifle and then get at least one kill with each.
