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.

BattleBit Remastered: what are Squad Points and how to use them

Most of the time in BattleBit Remastered, you'll probably be more focused on just trying to survive than anything else. This massive first-person shooter takes all the best elements of the Battlefield franchise, such as the giant, destructible maps, class system, and a strong emphasis on teamwork within squads.

If you've been running with squads, you might have noticed yourself earning something called Squad Points as you play. These points are shared among your entire squad, and building them up is a great way to turn the tides of battle. That is, if you know how to use them. Here's everything you need to know about Squad Points in BattleBit Remastered.

Final Fantasy 16 Timely Accessories: what they are and how to equip them

Traditionally, Final Fantasy titles don't come with difficulty options. As the series has grown leading up to Final Fantasy 16, Square Enix has started to add some options to make the game more accessible to players. Considering this latest entry is more action-heavy than any that has come before, with advanced moves like perfect dodges and parries, these tools are more necessary than ever for longtime fans who prefer a more traditional JRPG experience. While the Timely Accessories can't turn this action game into a turn-based one like older entries, it can at least give you enough of an edge to feel comfortable getting through combat so you can enjoy the deep and complex story. Let's go over what these Timely Accessories are and how to equip them in Final Fantasy 16.
What are Timely Accessories?

Timely Accessories in Final Fantasy 16 are basically your difficulty modifiers, but instead of being menu options, they're items. These types of items have become a bit more common in the last few years and include the Chicken Hat from Metal Gear Solid V. This time, there are five different accessories that you can pick from, each of which modifies the game in different ways to give you an edge in combat. Here are all five of the Timely Accessories and what they do:
Ring of Timely Evasion
When equipped, Clive will automatically evade attacks, as long as the attacks can be evaded.
Ring of Timely Focus
When equipped, time slows before an evadable enemy attack strikes Clive. There's no effect when equipped with the Ring of Timely evasion.
Ring of Timely Strikes
When equipped, complex ability combinations can be executed by simply pressing the Square button.
Ring of Timely Assistance
When equipped, pet commands will be executed automatically based on Clive's actions.
Ring of Timely Healing
When equipped, healing potions will automatically be used when Clive's HP falls below a certain threshold. More common healing items like potions will be used before rarer ones like high potions.
How to equip Timely Accessories
When you first begin Final Fantasy 16 you will need to choose between Story and Action Focused modes. These technically also serve as your difficulty selection, but it's really just a simplified way of enabling the Timely Accessories. Regardless of which difficulty you choose, you will always have access to all these accessories and can switch at any time while playing (as long as you are not currently in combat).
