Fortnite season 6, week 4 challenges and how to complete them

Week 4 of Fortnite‘s season 6 is underway, and with it comes a brand new batch of challenges. You shouldn’t have too many difficulties getting this week’s challenges knocked out since many of them can be unlocked by playing naturally. Fortunately, the tougher objectives are ones that require you to craft specific items, which is something you’ve probably been doing throughout the duration of this season anyway.

You might not be aware of how to craft the items tied to this week’s challenges, or perhaps you’re just jumping into this season for the first time this week. Either way, we’ve got you covered with a list of the latest quests along with guides on how to complete the trickier ones. Here are Fortnite‘s season 6, week 4 challenges and how to complete the more difficult ones.

Just like every week, we advise you to take a glance at the challenges so you’re prepared. As we’ve already mentioned, you’ll probably make a decent amount of progress on this week’s challenges by simply playing, but it’s always good to know what to expect.

The full list of challenges is as follows:

  • Set structures on fire (10)
  • Search chests (7)
  • Eliminate opponents with weapons of Rare rarity or higher (3)
  • Shockwave wildlife using a shockwave grenade or bow (1)
  • Tame animals in different matches (3)
  • Deal damage to opponents with The Recycler (300)
  • Revive a teammate (1)

As you can see, only a handful of them will require extra effort, such as dealing damage with The Recycler or shockwaving wildlife with a shockwave grenade or bow. Others, like searching chests or reviving a teammate, will come naturally. For the tougher quests, we’ve got guides on how to complete them below.

Fortnite is coming back to iOS, but Epic Games still isn’t happy about it
Solid Snake aiming a pistol out of a box in Fortnite.

Fortnite is set to come back to iOS in Europe sometime in 2024. This will mark the first time a natively running version of Fortnite will be available on iOS since Apple removed the game from the App Store in 2020.

Apple did so at the time because Epic tried to use its own third-party payment system, kicking off a series of legal battles in an attempt to get Apple to open up its platform more. Although those legal battles have yielded mixed results for Epic, a newly passed Digital Markets Act in the European Union is forcing Apple to do things like "allow third parties to inter-operate with the gatekeeper’s own services in certain specific situations" and "allow their business users to promote their offer and conclude contracts with their customers outside the gatekeeper’s platform."

Rock Band 4 gets its final piece of DLC next week after over 8 years of support
Key art for Rock Band 4

Harmonix revealed that the January 25 DLC tracks for Rock Band 4 will be the final new ones added to the game.

This ends a streak of more than eight years of weekly DLC for the rhythm game. Ever since Rock Band 4 was released in October 2015, new DLC songs have been made available for purchase every week, giving the game one of the most impressive live service tails in the industry. Ultimately, Harmonix says it will have released nearly 3,000 songs as DLC for Rock Band 4 after the final content drop next week, and that live service support for seasons and online play will "continue as normal" after next week.
