Developer Epic Games has changed how challenges work in Fortnite season 10, aka season X. Instead of daily challenges, there are Limited Time Mission Objectives that unlock a new objective every day. Weekly challenges are now simply the Battle Pass Missions, which, as the name states, are available for season 10 Battle Pass owners. Completing missions will unlock additional content and earn Battle Stars to reach tier 100 on the pass.
Another big change in Fortnite’s new season is the inclusion of Prestige missions. Once a set of challenges is completed, players can choose to redo the tasks. Each mission will consist of a similar requirement, though at a higher difficulty.
Out of Time challenges
Before the start of a new season, Epic releases a set of Overtime challenges to fill in the gap. The Out of Time missions are out Tuesday and include a few easy tasks along with a treasure hunt for recordings made by The Visitor, the protagonist for the battle royale storyline. These challenges will be available until Sunday when.
Where to find the Visitor recordings in Floating Island, Retail Row, Moisty Palms, Greasy Grove, Starry Suburbs and Gotham City
The Visitor recordings are located across the island but will only be released in pairs. See the map below on where to find the recordings. The only one not on the map is the Floating Island recording since the island moves around. Land on it and look for the yellow cassette tape behind a truck.
One data miner tweeted the audio found on the recordings. These snippets are part of a longer monologue referencing the events of season 10 and teasing what will happen on Sunday when the.
The reward for gathering all the recordings is unlocking the white version of the Scientist skin.
Here are the rest of the Out of Time challenges:
- Deal 2,500 damage to opponents
- Outlast 250 opponents
- Search 25 chests
Zone Wars challenges
Zone Wars is a new limited time mode for Fortnite that went live on Friday. Games are set in community-created maps and designed for quick matches reminiscent to late-game battle royale matches. With the new mode is a set of challenges available for players:
- Play 5 Zone Wars matches
- Get 10 eliminations in Zone Wars matches
- Deal 1,000 damage to opponents with Assault Rifles in Zone Wars
- Deal 1,000 damage to opponents with Shotguns in Zone Wars
- Gain 500 Health or Apply Shields in Zone Wars
- Build 250 structures in Zone Wars
Players have until Oct. 7 to complete all of the challenges and receive the Zone Wars style.
Welcome to Gotham City challenges
started Saturday and has its own set of Batman-themed challenges that are available until Oct. 1. The reward for completing all the tasks is the Catwoman glider.
Deal 250 damage to opponents with an Explosive Batarang
Explosive Batarangs are one of the two new items available during the Fortnite X Batman event. Batarangs can be found all across the island and act as grenades. Find some and throw them at other players to rack up the damage for this task.
Light up three different Bat Signals outside of Gotham City
Players can visit the mini-Gotham City to see an activated Bat Signal, but for this challenge, they’ll need to find the other signals found outside of the new zone. Get close to one to see the activation prompt and activate three to complete the challenge. See the map below on where to find them.
Use a Batman Grapnel Gun in three different matches
Like the Explosive Batarang, the Grapnel Gun is found across the map during this event. Batman’s trademark item will zip players to whatever spot the grappling hook connects to.
Defuse Joker gas canisters found in three different named locations
It wouldn’t be a proper Batman crossover without the Joker. Gas canisters decorated by the Joker are found in the various points of interest on the island. Keep your ears open for the beeping that lets you know one is nearby.
Deal any damage to opponents within 30 seconds of using a Batman Grapnel Gun
A simple task. Use the Grapnel Gun and make sure to take a shot at any players nearby.
Light a Bat Signal, use a Batman Grapnel Gun and deal any damage with an Explosive Batarang
Another straightforward challenge. The only difficult part is to get both the Grapnel Gun and Explosive Batarang in a match, since they’re hard-to-find items.
Rewards for completing challenges include new loading screens that offer a hint to a hidden Battle Star located somewhere on the island. These stars won’t appear unless you’ve completed all the challenges for the week.
The hint in this screen is the scratching above the character’s head, which shows D2, D3, E2, E3. This represents a particular spot on the map, which is to the southeast of the Block. Look for a patch of dirt on a hill, and if you’ve completed all of the challenges for week 1, the hidden Battle Star will appear.
The week 2 loading screen’s hint is in the top left of the image. The knife and fork represent the holes in the ground with similar shapes found between Fatal Fields and Salty Springs. The hidden Battle Star is between the two holes and will appear once all of the week 2 challenges are done.
Week 3’s loading screen features the Leftovers, and the secret to finding this Battle Star is the bus in the background.
On the truck is the mascot of the Softdeez ice cream shop. The shop is found across the street from the racetrack in Paradise Palms. If you completed all the challenges, the star will appear.
The clue in the week 4 loading screen is a little hard to see unless you increase the size of the image.
The stone at the right corner of the image shows four coordinates: I2, I3, J2 and J3. This spot is to the northeast of Sunny Steps. Walking to that location with all of the week’s challenges completed will trigger the appearance of the hidden Battle Star.
The week 5 loading screen is another hard-to-see clue. The secret is in the green slime on the left, which reads E78 and F78, which translates to the map coordinates of E7, E8, F7 and F8.
Head to the spot on the map below, and if you’ve completed all of the week’s challenges, a hidden Battle Star will appear.
Week 6’s Battle Star clue is a little easier to see in comparison to previous weeks. In the loading screen, there is a faint Battle Star on the pier. Head to the small pond at Fatal Fields and the secret Battle Star will appear once you’re close to the pier if all of the week’s challenges have been completed.
In the week 7 loading screen, the clue to the hidden Battle Star is really hard to see. In the background is a reflection of a taco. This is tied to the new taco restaurant in Greasy Grove. Go inside once all the week’s challenges are done and the star will show up.
The week 8 loading screen goes back to hard-to-see coordinates. The llama head gargoyles protruding from the building have G2, G3, H2 and H3 etched on them.
The hidden star is near pools of water to the west of Sunny Steps. See the map below for where the Battle Star should appear if you completed all the week’s challenges.
For week 9, Epic introduced a new limited-time mode called the Combine. The unlockable loading screen for the week is inspired by the mode and has a clue at the top of the image.
In the image is a tomato head next to the down arrow. This refers to the Tomato Temples of Fortnite season 5. While those are long gone, there is one remaining temple to the west of Pressure Plant, and that’s where the secret Battle Star is.
