Epic Games is continuing with weekly challenges in the sixth season of Fortnite. Every season introduces ten weeks filled with objectives, ranging from following a treasure map to getting eliminations with a certain type of weapon.
This week seems to be no different, and we are here to guide you through Fortnite's Season 6 Week 6 challenges.

What are Fortnite challenges?
In Fortnite, there are two types of challenges: Daily and Weekly.
Dailies revolve around getting kills, sometimes with specific types of weapons and placing high in a certain mode. Daily challenges reward you with both Battle Stars, used to progress your battle pass, and experience which is used to level up and unlock outfit styles for Battle Pass skins.
The Battle Pass is available every season for 950 V-Bucks, which equals just under ten pounds. There is also a free Battle Pass, which not to anyone’s surprise, isn't nearly as cool as the paid one.
Alongside Daily Challenges, you’ll find Weekly Challenges, which reward you with Battle Stars. The Battle Pass has 100 tiers and you’ll need 1000 Battle Stars to get to the top.
Assuming you don’t buy Battle Pass tiers, which is also an option, doing weeklies is the next best thing to make sure you won’t be laughed at by your friends for not reaching tier 100. You can earn 50 Battle Stars a week for finishing these.
There are seven challenges every week, with some harder than dailies, often including finding a spot on the map, with the only lead being a vaguely drawn treasure map, like “Follow the treasure map found in Retail Row”.
Epic also recently introduced staged challenges, which just as the word suggests, requires you to finish the challenge in a certain order. The harder ones will often net you with more Battle Stars. Three out of the seven challenges will also be available to people who do not own a Battle Pass, to finish the free Battle Pass section.
Daily challenges release every day at 1:00 AM (BST), while the weekly challenges appear every Thursday at 2:00 PM (BST). This is obviously subject to change so keep an eye out for updates from us and Epic Games.
Fortnite S6 Week 6 challenge list
It is not often that the weekly patch collides with the new set of challenges, yet that is what happened today after Epic delayed the patch on “patch Tuesday”. Along with the introduction of floating balloons, we find ourselves tasked with multiple staged challenges. You can find this week’s fairly straight-forward challenges below.
Free Battle Pass Challenges
- Place Chillers in different matches, three times
- Search a Chest in different Named Locations, seven times
- Three Shotgun Eliminations (HARD)
Premium Battle Pass Challenges
- Land at Shifty Shafts, five stages which most likely include landing at different named locations.
- Deal 250 damage with a pickaxe to opponents
- Find the Sheet Music in Pleasant Park (HARD), four stages which include playing different instruments at named locations.
- One elimination with a Common Weapon, five stages comprised of eliminations with Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary weapons.
The ‘Music’ challenge
This one seems to be the only challenge this week that will force players to search the map. Luckily we have found the locations for you.
First, you need to find a sheet of music in Pleasant Park (1) and play it on the piano (2) nearby. The exact notes that you need to play are C, E, G, E, C. After that, head to Retail Row (3) as shown below, pick up the sheet of music and play the following notes on the piano (4): A, E, F, A, E, C, A.
Here's the map:
Location of the Secret Banner
After finishing all of this week’s challenges, you'll be able to hunt down the secret banner. This time around the secret banner can be found east of Retail Row along the road, just south of the trailer camp. Make sure to bring some materials to get on top of the structure! Find the exact location below.
Completing all challenges this season, including the secret challenges, will earn you a legendary mystery item. Judging from the below image, this will most likely be a character skin.
