Season 9 Reference Map:
#1 Stage Challenge
The latest addition to Fortnite in season 9 is Slip Streams. These are portals that will let your character fly around different locations making for a quick trip from point A to point B. They can be used by either just your character or while in a vehicle but all you need to do is go through one. For this challenge, you’ll need to use the Slip Stream’s around two new locations in the game, Neo Tilted and Mega Mall.
- Stage #1: Ride The Slip Stream Around Neo Tilted
- Stage #2 Ride The Slip Stream Around Mega Mall
#2 Visit All Sky Platforms
Scattered about in the map are Sky Platforms and there’s a total of seven of them that you need to visit. They can be tough to find randomly on your own so we suggest looking at the map above which marks down each location.
#3 Deal Damage To Opponents Within 10 Seconds Of Using A Shadow Bomb
For this challenge, players will need Shadow Bombs. Players need to use a Shadow Bomb and then deal damage to an opponents within ten seconds of using the bomb. Now you don’t have to rank up all the damage at once. Instead, the game will register the amount of damage you do when you use the bomb so just keep using them until you complete the challenge. The total amount of damage you need to do is 200 and it doesn’t matter what weapon you use.
Battle Pass Challenges
#1 Pick Up A Legendary Item In Different Matches
For the first Battle Pass challenge in season 9 players will need to pick up a total of five legendary weapons in different matches. This means you need to pick up one legendary weapon for five different matches. Legendary weapons are found in a variety of areas. You can find them in chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, etc. However, in order to determine if a weapon is legendary it must have a gold color to it.
#2 Search Chests At Lucky Landing Or Loot Lake
This is an easy challenge to complete. All players need to do is search a total of seven chests within Lucky Landing or Loot Lake. You can go to either location and hunt down chests but ultimately you need a total of seven chests searched.
#3 Scoped Weapon Eliminations
Prepare to take aim as this challenge will require players to take out three enemies with a scoped weapon. Luckily if you have a preference to a scoped weapon then you’ll be able to use that specific weapon as the game does not limit players to specific scoped weapons. Furthermore, you don’t need to be at a specific distance in order to get the elimination registered.
#4 Stage Challenge
This is a staged challenge which means you will have to complete a series of tasks in order to get the challenged completed. Ultimately for this challenge players will need to deal damage to enemies at specific heights. It doesn’t matter what weapon you use but you will need to use buildings and its best to complete this challenge at new locations like Neo Tilted which has plenty of buildings and likely new visitors exploring the area.
- Stage #1: Deal 300 Damage From 2 Stories Above
- Stage #2: Deal 200 Damage From 4 Stories Above
- Stage #3: Deal 100 Damage From 6 Stories Above
#1 Stage Challenge

#2 Launch Off On Air Vents
Go to Lazy Lagoon or near the Volcano and use the air vent. You need to pull this off five times but can only be done once per match.
#3 Eliminate Opponents Within Sunny Steps Or Shifty Shafts
This is another straightforward challenge to complete, in this one all you need to do is take out three opponents in either Sunny Steps or Shifty Shafts.
Battle Pass Challenges
#1 Deal Damage With Pistols
Using pistols, you need to rack up five hundred damage against opponents. We suggest going to a more populated area in the map to tackle this challenge. For instance, Sunny Steps and Shifty Shafts tend to be pretty bare so it wouldn’t make sense to combine this challenge with the free challenge posted above. Instead, go with places like Snobby Shores or Tilted Towers.
#2 Visit Oversized Phone, Big Piano and Giant Dancing Fish Trophy
These are landmarks you can visit in the map. In fact, you may have stumbled upon them already since they are hard to miss. However, in the gallery above we have where you can find each of the items.

#1 Vehicle Stages
This is a staged challenge which mainly focuses on vehicles in some capacity.

Driftboards are featured in a variety of areas around the map but you’ll really find them in the snow area normally west of Polar Peak. From there you just to get on one and boost off an area and move the controls around to get a trick to register. Afterwards, you just need land safely to complete the stage challenge.
- Stage #2 Get 3s Of Airtime In A Quadcrasher
Unlike Driftboards, Quadcrasher’s are a bit more sporadic around the map so finding a vehicle to use won’t be hard or require too much traveling. With this stage, you need to get at least three seconds of airtime. This can be done by just riding off a high ledge and using a boost. We suggest building a ramp up to reach a good height to start off.
- Stage #3 Destroy Structures With Vehicles
It doesn’t matter what vehicle you use but you need to get into a vehicle and ram through three structures to destroy them. Simply travel around the map and look for abandoned structures to destroy.
#2 Search Chests Within Lonely Lodge or Polar Peak

#3 Deal Damage To An Opponent Within 10s After Using A Slipstream
Slipstreams were a new addition to Fortnite with season 9. With Slipstreams players can quickly maneuver around a large area and it’s likely something you’ve used already these past couple weeks.

You normally see them towards the western side of the map but again, they are pretty frequent throughout the game map in general. You need to go and stand near a total of five different Wind Turbines in a single match.
#4 Eliminations At Sky Platforms
Much line Wind Turbines, there are a number of different Sky Platforms scattered throughout the map. The easiest one to spot in my opinion would be by the Pressure Plant. You’ll want to secure a good close ranged weapon and get to one of these platforms. This could be a bit tough to complete because there is not a whole lot of room and places to flee if things get too heated. However, with that said you need to secure a total of three eliminations while on a Sky Platform.
