Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Week 2 Epic Quests Guide & Cheat Sheet

New week, new challenges! Use this cheat sheet to see how to max out your weekly quest XP!

With a new week, we welcome new challenges and quests. We're now in Week 2 of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6, and we're excited to see how we'll earn that nice purse of XP. In this guide, we will provide the guides for those tough-to-complete quests and some general tips to make the simpler quests easier.

Epic Quests are dropped every Tuesday. They typically challenge us to explore new mechanics and features introduced to Fortnite by Epic Games. This trend was set as far back as Chapter 1 of Fortnite and has returned every Season since then in some form or another. However, what puts Chapter 2 Season 6 apart from the others is the reward for completing each challenge. Each Epic Quest (and their different stages) are awarded 24,000 XP.

Legendary Challenges are also cycled out each week. We have opted to include them on this list, but it's important to note that they change every Thursday rather than every Tuesday. The first tier of the Legendary Challenges is rewarded with 35,000 XP, and every subsequent tier is rewarded with 24,500 XP.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Week 2 Epic Quests Guide & Cheat Sheet

Here is the cheat sheet for this week of Epic Quests! We've listed them in order of the NPC giving the task(s) and stage progression.

  • [Splode] Deal explosive damage to opponents 
    • It's easiest to do this in a Team Rumble match. During the first two Storm phases, make it your mission to find any type of explosive weapon. Grenades, Mechanical Explosive Bows, and Grenade Launchers will be your best friends in completing this task. Don't use them until the last two Storm Circles. Explosive damage is done via area of effect. This means that the closer your opponents are to each other, the easier it will be to hit one.
  • [Jules: Stage 1] Craft a Mechanical Bow, Mechanical Explosive Bow, and a Mechanical Shockwave Bow
  • [Jules: Stage 2] Deal damage with Mechanical weapons
    • The weapons that contribute to this task are listed below.
      • Revolver (Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary)
      • Pump Shotgun (Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary)
      • Assault Rifle (Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary)
      • Mechanical Bow
      • Mechanical Explosive Bow
      • Mechanical Shockwave Bow
  • [Rex] Tame a boar
  • [Lara Croft: Stage 1] Ride Different Ziplines
  • [Lara Croft: Stage 2] Obtain Literature Samples from Pleasant Park, Lazy Lake, or Retail Row
  • [Lara Croft: Stage 3] Get a headshot with a bow
    • For this quest, you'll want to go to Team Rumble. The players get closer together toward the end of the match. In every match, there are players that are sniping from tree tops or tall structures. You'll want to keep an eye out for these players since they usually are very still, which makes them easy targets. Or get a headshot on an NPC Guardian!
  • Legendary Quest: Deal damage with bows [2500 | 5000 | 7500 | 10000 | 12500]
    • As with the bow quests, this is most easily done in Team Rumble. We recommend you have at least two bows in your inventory at the last couple Storm Circles: a Mechanical Explosive Bow and a Primal Flame Bow. These both do area-of-effect damage after the initial shot. The damage done to players from the explosion and the fire counts towards your bow damage total.

As we said, Fortnite drops a new set of challenges every week and you have potential to earn 277,000 XP if you complete all of them! Be sure to check our Complete Guide every week for the new challenges and guides to max out your XP.

  1. Is anyone getting credit for the new Legendary quest? I’ve tried it in solos and team rumble and still at 0/2500. Used mechanical and basic bows…nada

    1. What I found odd is that upon release, is that my legendary quest never showed up on my list but while I was in team rumble, I gained a weird amount of xp for ‘task complete’. I assumed it kept track of my now damage before for second set of challenges landed. Though I don’t think I gained any of the xp directly. Still a little confused by it to be honest haha.

  2. For the headshot challenge, I kind of cheesed it a little by getting a headshot on a guardian NPC, was much easier

    1. Thinking outside the box! I like it 😀
