Stage 1 of 2: Ride the Slip Stream around Neo Tilted (1)

Time to try some of the new stuff in Fortnite Season 9! The Slip Stream are new structures you'll find at various parts of the map. You can jump through them and they will quickly move you across the area. One of these devices can be found in Neo Tilted, which is located right where Tilted Towers used to be.

New: Neo Tilted POI

Stage 2 of 2 - Ride the Slip Stream around Mega Mall (1)

Mega Mall is another new area, this replaced Retail Row. Same thing with this challenge, just go ahead and glide through the Slip Streams!

Visit all Sky Platforms (7)

Sky Platforms are a new addition to the game, and you'll find them hovering at various parts of the map.

Deal damage to an opponent within 10s after using a Shadow Bomb (200)

This shouldn't be too difficult, but if your opponent is knowledgeable they will know you've used one of these and likely build up and prevent you from getting to them. If you aren't the most skilled player, then this would be a good one for an LTM. You CAN find these in Team Rumble, I have fully confirmed this.

Pickup a Legendary Item in different matches (5)

Very simple one, you just need to find some Legendary items in different matches. LTMs are great for this kind of challenge, because you can take your time and fully loot places without worrying about getting eliminated.

Search chests at Lucky Landing or Loot Lake (7)

Another simple one, head to either location and loot up the chests. Loot Lake is going to be far more popular, so Lucky Landing is the spot if you want a quiet time where you'll likely have access to most of the chests.

Scoped Weapon Eliminations (3)

Well, the Thermal Rifle is gone, but there's still some Snipers in the game and the Scoped Assault Rifle to use!

Stage 1 of 3 - Deal damage to opponents from at least 2 stories above (300)

This is an interesting one, we've had challenges before where we needed to deal damage from above and at a distance but not "stories" above. You can tell you are a story above someone if you are one wall height above them. So, if you were to build three walls on top of each other, and your opponent was at the bottom one, then you'd be two stories above them. I'm guessing you'll get this done pretty passively, especially if you play in the LTMs.

Stage 2 of 3 - Deal damage to opponents from at least 4 stories above (200)

Same idea you just need to be twice as high!

Stage 3 of 3 - Deal damage to opponents from at least 6 stories above (100)

You'll have to be six stories above your enemy when dealing damage to complete the final stage of this challenge.

Hidden Item

Once you complete week 1 of the battle pass, you will receive the following loading screen that features a look at the new Raptor female skin that has been leaked called Velocity! She's using a Minigun to take down her enemies, and if you look closely at it you'll see some coordinates to our first battle star! It says I5, I6, J5, J6 which combine to put you just south of Lonely Lodge.

I've marked the exact location on the map below!

Here's the exact location you'll find it in, always look for a patch of dirt that looks slightly abnormal!

  1. Where are all of the fortbyte locations

  2. Anyone else notice how all the sky platforms are exactly where the runes were from the cube?

    1. Desert one is not and the jungle one you cannot 100% confirm unless you grab the Season 6 map and put them side to side. Also my brother pointed that out

  3. Here’s an idea for a website: Battle Pass generator. You get to create your ideal battle pass, kind of like TierMaker.

    1. I actually like the idea, it would be pretty difficult to build though.

  4. Terminal Velocity/Backup has arrived/Update: Shadow Bombs are in Team Rumble, it must not have been in the pool yesterday and Epic had to fix it

    1. Thanks! I’m surprised about the Shadow Bombs, I was playing earlier and couldn’t find them.

  5. Hey Evident. Are shadow bombs available in Team Rumble? Haven’t seen any.

    1. I think you’re right, I’m editing the guide again.

  6. When I was looking at the cheat sheet I noticed that there is something at the bottom left hot spring.

    1. The wooden thing in the hot spring is a fish.

    2. I think I see it, looks like a wood platform or something.

  7. Do you have to build for the story challenge or can you use buildings or mountains?

    1. I think it has to be built, I’m going to update the guide.

      1. Update: It can be a mountain. This is so stupid.

        1. I swear I tried that lol. Man, this is getting weird. I did end up finding Shadow Bombs in Team Rumble.
