Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 Quests: How to Open Safes, More
Epic Games has released the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 quests for players to complete. There is always a group of missions for players to do that range from simple puzzle-themed tasks to more aggressive, damage-dealing ones that will require a bit of time and skill on the player’s part.
Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 Quests List
The Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 quests release marks the point that we are now more than halfway through the current season, at least in terms of the normal 10 weeks that we are used to. This season hasn’t been the greatest, honestly, but it isn’t the worst, either.
That is because it is simply a foundational season that is there to build the groundwork for what is to come in the future. Thankfully, Epic has at least been great, for the most part, about having some interesting quests to do each week, like in the case of Week 5.
Fortunately, the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 quests follow up on that by having some rather intriguing and fun missions of their own. You can find the full list of the quests that are available this week conveniently listed for you below:
- Open three safes
- Do three bounties
- Achieve max shields in three different matches
- Be within 20 meters of a player for at least three seconds while wearing a prop disguise three different times
- Use a bow to hit a player from 50 meters away or greater
- Complete the swimming time trial at Weeping Woods or Coral Castle
- Visit Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse
- Week 6 legendary quest: Deal damage with makeshift weapons (five parts)
The missions this week aren’t too hard to do, but a lot of them have to do with stuff that we haven’t done before in a challenge, like visiting locations that aren’t too familiar or completing a time trial; the latter of which is something that we haven’t done in a long time.
This week is free from the usual open chests, ammo boxes, or get eliminations that have been a staple every week in past seasons, so this should be fun. Here’s how to complete all of the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 quests available this week.
How to Open Safes in Fortnite
To kick off the Fortnite Season 6 Week 6 quests, we have an interesting one: players need to open up three safes on the island. It doesn’t say that they have to be different safes, either, so you could open up the same safe over and over in three different matches to complete this quest.
The first part you need to know about is that safes are not the huge vaults from past seasons of Chapter 2. They are their item that you can interact with, similar to treasure chests, to open them up and get some special rewards inside.
They’re also really great for finding many gold bars and one of the best ways to do this in Season 6. Unfortunately, the safes are not guaranteed, much like treasure chests, so while you might find one or two in one spot, they are not guaranteed to be there in the next match.
Thus far, we have found safes at most named locations on the island. Our personal favorites, though, are Stealthy Stronghold, Pleasant Park, and Craggy Cliffs. This is because, except for Pleasant Park, these three locations are not that popular for landing spots.
Additionally, all three of them are near each other, so if you luck out in a match, there could be a safe at all three of them in the same match. Where you want to look is inside of buildings in bedrooms or hidden spots where you might find something like a chest or the like.
Then open up the safe when you find it, and you are good to go. Make sure to do this three times in total. Again, it doesn’t have to be in the same match, and you will complete this quest.
The second quest this week is to complete three bounties. Bounties were introduced in Season 5 and involve hunting down another player on the island. While you might find it as a surprise, they are still in the game, but they are not nearly as common to find as they were before.
This is because you are not guaranteed to find a bounty when you talk to the character NPCs like in the last season. Instead, there is more focus this season on the NPCs giving you other tasks and items. Because of this, there is only one sure-fire way of getting bounties this season.
That is by heading to the bounties boards around the island. There are a few on the map, but most are in weird areas in the middle of nowhere. They were available last season but much less common than getting bounties from NPCs.
Simply interact with the board to accept a bounty, and you will have someone to hunt, just like in Season 5. It is then up to you to hunt them down before the time runs out or have another player in the match do it for you. Do it a total of three times, and you are good to go.
How to Become a Prop in a Match
The third challenge this week is to get max shields in three different matches. This is honestly one of the easiest quests this week as you should be doing this in most, if not all, of the matches that you play of Fortnite. That should be one of the first goals that you have when you start a match.
You want to gear up with some decent weapons, sure, but you also want to make sure that you have shields to protect you when you inevitably get into some fights. As such, you should be searching for the small shield potions first to drink two of those.
Once you have 50 shield points, you do the usual search for the large shield potion in chests and then use that to get the max shields. It is nothing really special here, but you need to make sure that you do this in at least three different matches, not just three times in the same match.
Following up on that is the next one where you need to disguise yourself as a prop. Props have invaded Fortnite secretly but in a way that isn’t too common. You can make yourself hidden by acting as if you are a random item found on the island.
The way that you do this is by heading to the NPCs on the island. Sometimes, but not always, the character will give you the option to turn you into a prop if you’d like. Once they have done this, you will fulfill the first part of this quest.
Unfortunately, that is only the beginning of this lengthy mission. The next part is to get close enough to an enemy player to be within 20 meters of them for at least three seconds while acting as a prop. That is fairly close to the player, so you don’t want to move or risk getting caught.
Then, you need to make sure that you do this three times in total, so it might take you a few matches or disguises to get this done; make sure to stay still and not be out in the open, or else you might not live long enough in the match to be close to the enemy for three seconds.
How to Complete the Swimming Time Trial
The following quest is to hit a player in a match from 50 meters away or greater using a bow. It doesn’t matter which bow you use, so feel free even to use the makeshift bow that you can find just about everywhere on the island these days if you want.
Fifty meters is a good distance away, so it might be tough for some players who are not great at using the bow. But it’s actually become my favorite weapon this season, and I’m not usually a sniper or anything like that, so here are some tips that I have for using it.
The bow, in general, is a bit slow when it comes to the shot going and making the landing on the enemy player, especially from far distances. This is compared to sniper rifles and other modern weapons in the title. It is also slow, of course, because you need to charge it up to have an accurate shot.
Because the arrow flies a bit slow, it will probably land when the player is already out of the spot they are currently in. You need to judge where they’re going to be from a far distance when the shot lands, and you will likely land it, dealing some heavy damage in the process.
Furthermore, there is some dropoff when it comes to the arrow, but this only affects the moments when you are battling someone from above them or going up a hill. In general, if someone is heading left, shoot a little bit farther left than they are or to the right, etc. It is a bit of a guessing game at times but, with practice, you can do these shots on the fly since you know how it will work.
Next up, we have some swimming time trials to complete. Since we’ve had a time trial, it has been a while, but they work as basically a solo race. You start the race and need to go through rings to the end before the time runs out to win.
In this case, you will need to swim your way to the end of the trial through all of the rings to win. There are two trials available, one near Weeping Woods and another at Coral Castle, so take your pick of which one you want to do. You don’t need to do both for this quest.
How to Complete the Week 6 Legendary Quest
The final normal quest this week is to visit three different locations. They don’t have to be in the same match so long as you visit all three of them. These spots are Fancy View, Rainbow Rentals, and Lockie’s Lighthouse. All three are landmark spots that aren’t too popular to visit.
That is where we come in with the locations of all three of them. The first is Fancy View. You can find this location on the western shore of the island just west of Sweaty Sands. There is a little pointy part that points west on the map due west of the named location and the road that goes behind it. Head here for the first part.
The second one is Rainbow Rentals. This landmark location has been featured in quests before and is found on the sandy shore southwest-ish of Holly Hedges. There is a sandy area that you can find here on the map. This shore is where you will find the Rainbow Rental beach houses for this second part of the quest.
The third and final location is the lighthouse. This one is pretty prominently featured on the island in that little island part northwest of Stealthy Stronghold. There is a big lighthouse where you can visit and complete this quest.
Finally, this week, we have the legendary quest. It is only around for a week, unlike the other quests, so be sure to do it as fast as you can. This week is pretty simple: deal damage with makeshift weapons. However, the amount of damage that you have to deal is a whole lot.
The makeshift weapons are the basic ones that you can find all over the island for assault rifles, SMGs, pistols, and the like. They can be upgraded into better forms, but we don’t want to do that this time. We want to use the base version to deal damage.
There are five stages as always, with each stage increases the amount of damage necessary but gives some new experience rewards. It is highly recommended that you do this one with a full party of four players working on the same quest.
It is also recommended to do this in Team Rumble to have respawns and more time to get damage with makeshift weapons as a team. It can take a long time to get all five stages, but it might be worth the time and effort to you and your pals for the XP.
