We’ve got yet another Fortnite challenge guide for you, this time for season 6, week 9. For this week, you’ll come across a variety of challenges that require you to visit specific locations and many that send you into the deadly Storm. The Storm-related challenges are self-explanatory but require some planning beforehand if you want to make things go as smoothly as possible.

Aside from that, you’ll need to be aware of the locations of specific animals and more. Here, we’ll go through all of the new challenges, and we’ll provide details on getting through the trickier ones. These are Fortnite‘s season 6, week 9 challenges and how to complete them.

Season 6, week 9 challenge list

As always, it’s recommended to take a look at the challenge list before hopping into a match — that way you have a general idea of what you need to do. Many of the challenges can be finished quickly, but some will require some preparation to complete effectively.

Here’s a list of the newest Fortnite challenges:

  • Activate a rift by purchasing it from a character
  • Hunt a boar (1)
  • Spend seven seconds within 7 meters of a fleeing chicken (1)
  • Gain health in the Storm (1)
  • Shockwave grenade yourself while in the Storm (1)
  • Survive Storm phases (10)
  • Build in the Storm (10)

The most difficult ones are for completing certain tasks while in the Storm. For these, we advise waiting until the Storm is still so you don’t have to worry about outrunning it. For these, come equipped with the required materials (such as health, shockwave grenades, or building resources), and then quickly pop into the storm to meet the requirements.

Below are guides on getting through some of the trickier challenges for the week.

While this challenge isn’t hard by any means, it’s one that might cause some trouble since the game doesn’t specify how to complete it. To complete it, you need to purchase the ability to utilize a rift from certain NPCs around the map. The guide below has all the details for getting through it.

Hunt a boar


The toughest thing about hunting boars is actually finding them. Use the map above to find the general locations of boars around the map.

Spend seven seconds within 7 meters of a fleeing chicken

This one is a little harder since you have to keep up with a running chicken, but you shouldn’t have too many difficulties with it as long as you’re quick. Check the map above for the general locations of chickens around the map.

And with that, you should be well-equipped to get through all of Fortnite’s season 6, week 9 challenges. They aren’t too hard this week, as long as you’re prepared — especially for the ones that require you to head into the storm.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!
