Thursday marks the weekly update of challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and the last is no exception. Week 3 in Season 6 is now alive with a new slate with seven challenges to complete between now and the end of the season. In particular, one of these can prove difficult, as you need to track down and complete various time-limited attempts. We've put together a quick guide, video (over) and maps to help you get it done quickly; Here's where to go and what to do.
The challenge is full time trial as you may remember from Season 5, when this kind of challenge made its debut. What you need to do and the process to complete it has not changed since then, so here's a breakdown. Scattered around the island are blue stopwatch collectibles, and when you pick one up, you get a time allocated to take the rest of those displayed in the area. If you are new to this, it may take some try and mistake, as some of the collectors require you to build them up to them. This of course means that you must have the appropriate resources at hand to create the required platforms. In some areas it may also be beneficial to jump in a vehicle to get it done quickly, so you need to get a feel for if that is the case and then take an ATK.
When it comes to finding the location of the timed samples, we recommend going for the other challenges first, but keeping your eyes slipping for the blue stopwatches. In particular, "Looking for a coffin in Lonely Lodge" and "Visiting Risky Reels and Wailing Woods" challenges are good attempts to be the main focus. These two challenges involve traveling around the map, so you will probably go into some attempts along the way. This is a great way to streamline the challenge process. Fortunately, there are plenty of time-limited attempts scattered around the island.
- Outdoor tomato temple (Between G3 and G4)
- Left of Dusty Divot (F5)
- Hilltop south of Tilted Towers (D6)
- Bridge near Shifty Shifts (D8)
- Villains Hideout (Between B4 and B5)
After completing three of the time trials, you will get 10 precious Battle Stars. The rest of the challenges should not be that difficult. Take a look at our full review of Season 6, Week 3's Challenges for more information about these.
Fortnite feels a bit spooky for Halloween and if you want to be extra effective to put the fear in other Fortnite players, developer Epic Games has released a bunch of new cosmetics worth checking out. These include Skull Trooper skin, which makes its long-awaited return with some additional customization options. It's also the new Skull Ranger skin for the female character model, the Skull Sickle Harvesting Tool that is essential to the harbinger of Doom Look, and Crypt Cruiser Glider, so that you look like death floating around Fortnite skiing. These can all be purchased through the game store using V-Bucks.
The hottest Fortnite game is this Halloween, but undoubtedly Ghost Portal Back Bling, which gives the excitement of other skins. To get this, you must complete the Skull Trooper Challenges, which will take a lot of dedication. You can see all Skull Trooper Challenges and New Cosmetics here.
If you need a break from the challenge template, Epic has introduced a new Limited Time mode called Disco Domination. This mode behaves two layers to take control of most dance floors on the island. To ensure a dance floor, of course you have to dance long enough to raise a disco ball. This mode was added as part of update 6.02, which also included the new Quad Launcher weapon. You can read about both these additions as well as other customizations and changes in the Fortnite update 6.02 patch notes.
