Fortnite Season 4 Week 6 Challenges Guide: Use Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave, More
We have now crossed over the halfway point of Fortnite Season 4 as we arrive in the sixth week of battle royale. With this week now here, you can do the Fortnite Week 6 challenges, which happen to be one of the less interesting weeks for battle royale missions.
Fortnite Week 6 Challenges Are Here
The Fortnite Week 6 challenges are here as always, alongside the sixth week of the Wolverine missions. For this post, we will focus on the main battle royale missions that players can do this week. We are using the leaked missions for this guide, so there are some issues with our list.
As with any leaked list of battle royale missions, there is one extra one, likely as a replacement, if there is an issue with one of the challenges or the items involved with them. That has been utilized in the past, so Epic Games keeps it there just in case.
You will find one extra challenge in this list compared to the Week 5 challenges, but we suspect that we know which of these is the culprit. You can find the full Fortnite Week 6 challenges below for this week:
- Search for seven treasure chests at Weeping Woods
- Get three eliminations at Misty Meadows
- Collect 300 stone materials from Coral Castle
- Consume a legendary fish
- Consume foraged items at Holly Hedges
- Ride a zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks
- Deal damage after knocking back an opponent with Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave
- Deal 500 damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp
As you can see, there are eight Fortnite Week 6 challenges listed above, which is one more than the usual seven that we have gotten this season. We believe the last one is the impostor and will likely not be in the live version of the challenges, but it is worth going over regardless.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into Fortnite and take a look at our tips and tricks for completing all eight of the Fortnite Week 6 challenges this week.
How to Search Chests and Get Eliminations
Kicking off this list are the usual challenges that you would expect from every single week. We have the two tried and true mission types that we always get: chests and eliminations. The first one this week is to find seven treasure chests, but this time at Weeping Woods.
This one is interesting since Weeping Woods is already a very important destination this week for the sixth Wolverine mission, so you will likely be heading here anyways. The problem with this location is that there aren’t many chests to grab in the forest.
Your best bet is to head for the center of the forest where the clearing is and the main campsite is found. The buildings here and the RVs house most of the chests in this named location, but there are few of them. This is going to make this particular chests challenge one of the hardest ever.
Then, so many players will be trying to find chests here this week, along with those doing the Wolverine mission. All in all, this is going to be a challenging week for finding chests at Weeping Woods, so your best bet is to do this in the Team Rumble game mode.
You will have fewer enemies to worry about in this game mode and spend more time looking for chests. So long as you grab one or two chests per match you do, you should be able to do this in four or five matches, which is a lot but doable for sure.
The next mission is to get three eliminations at Misty Meadows. This is your usual eliminations challenge, so the typical tips apply here. We recommend doing this in Team Rumble and that you head to this location first. Gear up and then find someone to take out.
If you do this in Team Rumble with a circle nearby, you can do this whole mission in a single go. But if you don’t, then we recommend aiming for just one elimination per match here. You will have this done in just a few matches.
How to Consume a Legendary Fish
For the third challenge this week, you need to collect 300 stone materials at Coral Castle. Collecting materials is nothing unusual since you are likely already doing this in most matches. But for this one, you need to head to Coral Castle in the northwest corner of the island.
Three hundred is a fair amount, but you can get that much in a single match at Coral Castle if you go there right at the match’s start. Your best bet is to destroy the castle walls itself or any of the other stone buildings at this named location.
If you spend a good bit of time doing this with your pickaxe, you should have 300 in no time. However, Coral Castle is a really popular destination, so watch out for enemies looking to take you out and other players destroying everything before you have a chance to. As such, Team Rumble will do well here, too.
For the fourth challenge in Week 6, we have one of the hardest ones you have to do. You need to consume a legendary fish. In theory, consuming fish sounds relatively simple and easy, which it is. The problem with this mission is getting your hands on one of these elusive fish.
But before we can get to that, we need a fishing rod. You can find them all over the map in barrels or in treasure chests, but our easy go-to spot is always Sweaty Sands where you can find one on the pier. While a normal fishing rod will do you good, a pro one will help you even more.
You can find one of these as loot or you can head to an upgrade station to upgrade a normal fishing rod to a pro one for 100 materials of all three types. The pro fishing rod will increase your chances of finding the difficult legendary fish.
For the rest of the match, you have to fish over and over until you find a legendary fish. This can take some time and luck, but you can potentially speed this up by having your squad fish with you. The catch is that you don’t have to reel in the legendary fish but consume it.
So, technically, a teammate could catch it, throw it on the ground, pick it up, and then eat it. You and your team could take turns doing this for each other until all four of you have consumed a legendary fish and finished this mission.
How to Consumed Foraged Items at Holly Hedges
For the following challenge this week, you need to consume foraged items at Holly Hedges. Holly Hedges is a small named location, but there are foraged items that you can find here. This group of items includes stuff like apples, mushrooms, and so on that you pick up off of the ground and immediately eat.
They will either give you shields or health back, so they are useful for quick ways of getting shields when you can’t find any potions. There are some foraged items around Holly Hedges, particularly near the woodsy parts of it, but they aren’t many.
We highly recommend that you head to this location as soon as you jump into the match and find and consume as many as possible before other players can get there and beat you to it. This is another situation where Team Rumble is your friend since there is less competition overall.
For the sixth challenge in Week 6, we have one of the stranger missions: ride a zipline from Retail Row to Steamy Stacks. We’ll be honest that we didn’t know there was even a zipline before this mission that would allow you to go all the way from Retail Row in the south to Steamy Stacks in the north.
But there is a “zipline” of sorts that will allow you to do just this. First and foremost, head to Retail Row. The place that we need to go to is the very northeastern corner of the named location. When you are here on the edge of town, you can see two lines that look to be electrical lines of some sort.
They are heading north. You can, believe it or not, actually ride these electrical lines as if they are ziplines for some reason. All you need to do is get close enough to them, interact with them, and you will start riding them quickly north.
They go all the way up to Steamy Stacks, so completing this mission can be a breeze. Just watch out for players gathering around the ziplines or targeting players on them. Team Rumble might be the best choice here, too, to avoid unfortunate situations like those.
How to Deal Damage With Black Panther’s Kinetic Shockwave
For the big challenge this week, you need to deal some damage after knocking back an opponent with the Black Panther Kinetic Shockwave power. There are a couple of ways to do this challenge, but there is much easier than the other.
The first method that is harder is finding the Black Panther superhero ability on the battle royale island. Your best bet for this is to head to the Quinjet locations and find whatever powers are there. But there are many powers in the game, so your chances of finding this one are slim.
Instead, the better option is to do the Marvel Takeover limited-time game mode available right now this season. In this mode, everyone will start with one power and, if you don’t like that one, there are plenty of other powers that are falling from the skies at all times.
So, even if you don’t get the Black Panther Kinetic Shockwave power when you enter the match, follow the comets to see if they drop it on the map. Once you have found and equipped this power, all you need to do is find an opponent to use it on.
You will want to knock them back with the Black Panther superpower and then immediately switch to one of your weapons and shoot at them right after. If you do it fast enough, you will get a notification to let you know that you completed this mission.
Finally, we do not think that this eighth challenge will be available this week, but it is worth mentioning. It is to deal 500 damage to opponents at Slurpy Swamp. This is another standard one, but 500 is a whole lot equal to five players with 100 health or more than two players with both full health and shields.
Thankfully, you can do this mission over time, so don’t worry too much if you don’t get all of the damage in one match. Again, Team Rumble is great for this one since you can respawn and keep damaging opponents over and over.
Fortnite Week 6 Challenges Rewards
As for the rewards this week, there is nothing super special. You are going to get 25,000 experience for each of the missions that you do. It isn’t a lot, but we are in the second half of the season now, so players who still want the Iron Man suit at tier 100 in the battle pass should attempt all of these to get as much XP as possible.
