Fortnite challenge guide: How to complete the Black Panther quests

Fortnite season 5 is chock full of challenges and the list keeps getting bigger and bigger. Recently, a new set of Black Panther challenges became available, based on the famous Marvel hero. The challenges themselves aren’t too tough, but it’s a good idea to be aware of what they are and how to get through them as efficiently as possible.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through completing all three Black Panther quests in Fortnite.

List of Black Panther quests

  • Players need to play 10 matches in Fortnite without leaving midway.
  • Players must outlast a total of 500 enemies across all Fortnite games played during the event’s duration.
  • Players have to complete five games of Duo or Squad in Fortnite with their in-game friends.

There are a couple of things to know about the Black Panther challenges in Fortnite. The first thing is that — unlike many challenges this season — you can stack progress across all three quests. This is particularly useful to know ahead of time so you can complete them all as efficiently as possible. During season 5, many challenges cannot be stacked, since you have to complete the first stage before unlocking the next, and so on. But luckily, that’s not the case with Black Panther’s quests.

Below, we’ll walk you through completing all of Black Panther’s quests.

Play 10 matches without leaving midway

Since you can stack progress across all three challenges, we recommend to go for this one while you attempt the last one, which requires you to play five games in Duos or Squads with in-game friends. As long as you don’t leave the match, you’ll gain credit towards this quest. If you want to make this one go by faster, you can kill your character as soon as the match starts by jumping off a tall building or something similar, but we don’t recommend this since you need to survive to gain credit for the next challenge.

Outlast a total of 500 enemies

Ideally, we advise to prioritize this challenge while playing Duos or Squads with friends. As soon as the game starts, hide on the edges of the map — as far away from others as possible. Even if you win each and every match you play, you’ll still need to complete around six games to outlast 500 enemies, which is more than the amount you need for the next challenge.

Complete five games of Duo or Squad with in-game friends

This one is likely the toughest because it can be hard to line up with your friends. If you’re really having trouble, play random matches and send friend requests to everyone. Not everyone will accept, but you’ll surely make at least a few new friends this way. Otherwise, go for the Black Panther quests all at once with a buddy to ensure you complete them efficiently.

Once you complete all three quests, you’re rewarded with the Wakandan Salute emote for free.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Fortnite lawsuit: Are you eligible for a refund from Epic Games?
New characters in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4.

Fortnite developer Epic Games is being hit with $520 million in fines by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and there's a chance that you could get a payout.

Out of that $520 million total, $245 million is set to be refunded to customers. Refunds are meant to go to those affected by the company's billing and refund practices -- mainly players (and parents of younger players) who were charged for unwanted cosmetics and were met with account locks if they tried to dispute the charges with their credit card companies.
