Fortnite Challenge Guide: Visit Corrupted Areas (Season 6, Week 2)


We’re now in the second week of Fortnite Season 6 and with a whole new Battle Pass that means there’s plenty of new cosmetics to unlock. One of the ways to do this is by completing the weekly challenges and to make that a quicker easier task, we’ve got a breakdown of everything you need to do. As with the previous season, challenges are split into two categories, with one set available to everyone and a second set exclusively for those that purchase a Battle Pass. Complete the mini-quests and you’ll earn Battle Stars that level up your Battle Pass to unlock rewards.

In the free section you’ll need to use a Shadow Stone in three different matches, complete stage one of a multi-part challenge by dealing 200 points of damage with an Assault Rifle, and visit all of the Corrupted Areas (more on that below). In the paid Battle Pass section the challenges all involve getting into combat, with one asking you to kill an opponent from at least 50m away, while another requires you to take out three players with an SMG. Take a look below for the full list of challenges.

For Season 6 developer Epic Games also introduced Pets, which hang around with you as you do your thing on the island and react to things happening in adorable ways. You can read all about Pets, as well as the other new additions and changes, in the full Fortnite update 6.0 patch notes. Since the launch of Season 6 and the patch, Epic has released update 6.01, which included a new trap called the Chiller.

There will also be Halloween-themed Fortnite skins, back bling, gliders, and pickaxes, according to a leak. Fans that have been digging into the game data and pictures off the upcoming cosmetics were posted online, and they look pretty cool.
