Land at Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs and Dirty Docks 

To start things off, players are tasked with landing at three different locations. This can be done at the start of the match once you leave the battle bus and it will take players at least three matches to complete this task.

Hide inside hideouts in different matches

Since players are now able to hide in Fortnite, the next challenge tasks the players with hiding at least once in three different matches. This can be done by entering garbage cans, haystacks, and other similar hiding spots.

Search Chests at Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows

The third challenge is a familiar challenge that tasks the players with opening seven yellow chests at either Craggy Cliffs or in Misty Meadows over the course of multiple matches.

Eliminate opponents with a sniper rifle

Up next we have an elimination challenge that requires the player to eliminate opponents with a specific weapon. In this case, players will need to eliminate two opponents with a sniper rifle across multiple matches.

Be crouched within 20m of an opponent for a total of 10 seconds

The next challenge requires the player to get a little sneaky and stay crouched within the distance of 20m near at least one opponent for at least 10 seconds. This one can be a little tricky and might take you some time to complete.

Deal damage with pistols to opponents

Up next is another very familiar challenge. To complete it, players are required to deal at least 500 points of damage with any of the available pistols across multiple matches.

Search ammo boxes in a single match

Yet another familiar challenge which we have been tasked numerous times in the past. To complete it, players will need to open seven ammo boxes during a single match.

Get an elimination from 50m or further

The second elimination challenge for this week requires the players to eliminate an opponent from a specific distance, in this case, at least 50 meters. This can be easily done with a sniper rifle.

Survive storm phases

This challenge requires the players to survive a total of 10 storm phases across multiple matches. Although a bit time consuming, this is not a particularly hard challenge to complete. Your best chance of completing this is dropping at a secluded location and slowly moving towards the safe zone while avoiding confrontation.

Deal damage within 10 seconds of leaving a hideout

Getting close to the end here. To complete this challenge, players are required to deal 150 points of damage to opponents within 10 seconds after abandoning a hiding spot. This can be a bit tricky to complete as it is highly luck dependent on whether an enemy will be near the spot where you are hiding.

Search hidden O found in the Open Water loading screen

The final challenge for this week requires the players to find the secret letter O. This challenge is similar to the previous Battle Star challenges and the clue to the location of the letter can be found in the loading screen image.

If you take a closer look at the loading screen, located under the dock of the center building, you will spot the letter O. Afterwards, it is just a matter of getting to the depicted location which in this case is a building in Craggy Cliffs.
