Season X Catastrophic Challenges (Fortnite Battle Pass Guide)
Urgent Mission Objectives
Day 1: Deal (100) damage with Pickaxes to opponents
For this Challenge, you’ll definitely want to take advantage of the Team Rumble mode. Respawns are enabled in this mode, that means you can run at enemies and get your Pickaxe damage in without the worry of having to queue for a new match once you’ve died.
While much harder, you could also do this Challenge in a normal mode. Take advantage of the Duos and Squads modes as you can deal Pickaxe damage to downed opponents.
Day 2: (3) Eliminations from at least 50 meters away
Depending on your preference and skill level, nearly all weapons will suffice for this Challenge, with the obvious picks being Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles.
If long-range engagements are something you struggle with, consider going into the Team Rumble mode where you can respawn with your loot, take the high-ground, and eliminate the enemy who eliminated you.
Day 3: Use a trap slot item in (3) different matches
Depending on when you’re completing this Challenge, you may have an extra choice when it comes to Traps as the Zap Trap was recently leaked. At the time of writing, however, your choices include Damage Traps and the Launch Pad.
This is a super simple Challenge which doesn’t really require any direction, but one thing to note is that your Trap is only as durable as the material it is placed on.
Day 4: Place Top 5 in Duos or Squads Matches
Depending on your experience and skill level, this Challenge may prove difficult. If winning games is something you struggle with, we highly recommend checking out our YouTube Channel which features a wide selection of videos aimed to help you improve.
Day 5: Deal (500) damage to opponents from above
Once again, our YouTube Channel is the perfect fit for tips regarding this Challenge as we have a video dedicated to taking advantage of the high ground.
Besides general tips and techniques, don’t forget that you can deal damage to downed opponents for Challenge progression.
Day 6: Visit Lonely Lodge and Lazy Lagoon in the same match
Another simple Challenge, especially considering the fact that these two locations are relatively near each other. While the Challenge doesn’t require you to open Chests, you might as well pick up some loot while you’re there. Below you can find maps of Chest spawns for each location.
There are a total of 12 potential Chest spawns in Lonely Lodge.
There are a total of 28 potential Chest spawns in Lazy Lagoon.
Day 7: Search (7) Chests at Shifty Shafts or Haunted Hills
Depending on the Bus’ flight path, you’ll likely want to go to Shifty Shafts for this Challenge rather than Haunted Hills. Haunted’s loot distribution is rather open and spread out while Shifty’s is nice and compact. There’s also the advantage of location on the map with Shifty when compared to Haunted.
There are a total of 11 potential Chest spawns in Shifty Shafts.
There are a total of 12 potential Chest spawns in Haunted Hills, 16 if you count the mountain castle.
