Fortnite Season 9 Week 3 Challenges Are Now Live

Fortnite season 9

Do you consider yourself talented when it comes to piloting Fortnite‘s various modes of transport? Here’s hoping the answer is yes, as Epic Games is asking players of its battle royale to pull off some particularly dangerous stunts for Season 9’s third round of challenges. In fact, speed appears to be the general overarching theme this week, as several tasks require a dextrous pair of hands before yielding their lucrative Battle Star rewards.

As always, assignments are split down the middle between free options and those exclusive to Battle Pass owners and there’s a lot to cover, so let’s get to it.

First on the list is the aforementioned vehicle-related exorcise. To begin ticking off this staged challenge, you’ll need to grab a Driftboard. Veterans will likely already be well accustomed with the wheelless peripheral, though newbies need not despair – everything you need to know in that regard can be found over here. Once you’ve gotten hold of one, simply perform a single trick to cross stage 1 off the list.

For stages 2 and 3, you’ll need to get several seconds of airtime while driving the Quadcrasher and destroy three enemy buildings with a vehicle respectively. Any vehicle can be used to complete the latter, however, so feel free to use whatever takes your fancy.

As for remaining challenges, landing at specific locations on the map and searching treasure chests round out the bulk of what’s on offer – you know, the usual stuff – though there’s one outlier that could prove tricky. Dealing 200 damage to opponents within 10 seconds of using a Slipstream is the most time-sensitive ask this week and will surely require the patience of a saint to complete.

See below for the full list of Fortnite Season 9’s Week 3 challenges. Good luck out there, folks!
