We are onto the fourth week of Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 4 and that means there's more challenges to complete. We had a pretty good sized patch last week that brought forth a huge new POI to the map, as well as a boss spawn that you can destroy for some great loot. We'll need to be on our game this week, because that boss is going to be one of our targets, and destroying it is not that easy!
This season is going to be a pretty long one, and is scheduled to continue on until November 30th, 2020. The XP gain is a bit slower this season, so you will want to make sure you are completing these challenges each week. Not only will you want to fully unlock all of the skins and cosmetics, you can go further into your pass to gain additional foil styles for each of the skins!
Fortnite Season 4 Week 4 Challenges
- Search 7 Chests at Slurpy Swamp (25,000 XP)
- Get 3 Eliminations at Weeping Woods (25,000 XP)
- Deal 100 damage within 10 seconds of bouncing off an umbrella at Sweaty Sands (25,000 XP)
- Destroy 3 Collector Cases at The Collection (25,000 XP)
- Hack 5 Stark Robots at Stark Industries (25,000 XP)
- Destroy 20 Gatherers (25,000 XP)
- Deal 10,000 damage with a Gatherer's remains (50,000 XP)
- Deal 500 damage to opponents at Steamy Stacks (25,000 XP)
- Deal 500 damage to opponents at The Authority (25,000 XP)
While the list is showing nine total challenges, we generally only get seven per week. The final two challenges are likely there just in case something goes wrong with the Gatherer challenges and Epic has to disable them.
Some of these challenges are self-explanatory, I'm going to detail further how exactly you can complete the more challenging ones in the descriptions below.
Search 7 Chests at Slurpy Swamp
Slurpy isn't a super popular landing spot, but it also doesn't have a ton of chests. Now that Epic made chest spawn rates less than 100% it is going to be harder to complete challenges like this. Team Rumble is usually your best bet, because you won't have to fight off a bunch of people that are trying to eliminate you while gathering the treasure. Unfortunately, you will have to fight with your teammates for some of the spawns. Credit to Fortnite.gg for the map.
Destroy 3 Collector Cases at The Collection
The Collection is a relatively new POI and one of the ones that spawned in from another planet. It's south of Retail Row and to the east of Catty Corner. It's in the mountains, so it would be easier to glide there from the Battle Bus. You will find collector cases scattered around the area, so just start smashing to complete the task.
Hack 5 Stark Robots at Stark Industries
You can find Stark Industries in the huge circular section of map that was added in the recent patch. This is covering what used to be Frenzy Farms. The location has quite a few Stark Robots milling about that you can eliminate. You will also want to be careful, because Iron Man is also in this location and is pretty powerful. Knockdown one of the Stark Robots and you can use the hack option on it to have it fight for you! The process takes a fair amount of time, so watch your back when attempting to implement the hack.
Destroy 20 Gatherers
The Gorger is a new boss spawn that will randomly show up in each round of a normal game of battle royale (it doesn't show up in Team Rumble). To find it, you can jump out of the bus and wait for a minute or so in the air and look for the red beam that shoots down at its spawn location. It has about seven locations it will spawn at, and they are all listed on the map below. When you fight the Gorger, it will summon a couple of smaller drones that are called Gatherers. These are what you need to destroy to complete the challenge.
Deal 10,000 damage with a Gatherer's remains
As mentioned in the previous challenge the Gatherers are what the Gorger spawns when you fight it. When you down one of these Gatherers, you have a short period of time where you can pick it up and use it as a weapon. This gun can be fired one shot at a time, or you can charge up a shot and do big damage along with some AOE. If you do the charged shot, however, it will destroy the Gatherer weapon.
10,000 damage is quite a bit, so thankfully you can do this in a group! Gather up some friends or jump into random squad and hope that they are interested in destroy a Gorger so that you can dish out a lot of damage quickly.
