Epic Games clearly had its sights set on making us kill each other with this week’s challenges. Usually, there’s a good mix of challenge in the Battle Pass that will have you both exploring and fighting, but this week seemed mostly about getting into fights. With that said, there are definitely some optimal ways to complete this week with your rotations, and we’re going to get into that right now.
Free Tier Challenges:
- Visit all 7 of the Corrupted Areas
- Use a Shadow Stone in 3 different matches
- Stage 1-3: Deal damage with Assault Rifles to opponents
Battle Pass Challenges
- Eliminate an opponent from at least 50m away
- Deal 500 damage with Pistols to opponents
- 3 SMG Eliminations
- Stage 1-3: Deal damage with Sniper Rifles to opponents
Visit all 7 of the Corrupted Areas
These are actually really good places to land outside of when the Floating Island is overhead. There’s at most three chest spawns and often vents that can send you flying across the map if you equip a Shadow Stone while you’re using the ability. To complete this challenge you’ll need to travel to all 7, which will definitely be difficult all in one match. Luckily, you’re going to need to be visiting these in three separate ones anyway.
Use a Shadow Stone in 3 different matches
As mentioned previously, you need to visit 7 of these Corrupted Areas where the Shadow Stones spawn to complete another challenge, and picking these up will help complete that. You can equip a stone, jump into a geyser/vent and then bounce everytime you touch the ground to travel almost as fast as the Battle Bus itself! Using this method will help you get to at least two areas a match.
Eliminate an opponent from at least 50m away
Are you thinking what we’re thinking? Use a Shadow Stone, bounce towards an enemy, find a vantage point, and then kill them while their back is turned. That’s probably the most efficient way to complete these challenges. When Battle Stars are on the line, being efficient is the best way to be.
Hidden Banner Week 2
You’ll need to head to the stagecoach at Paradise Palms where the Rifts spawn to collect this hidden banner. This is of course only available if you’ve completed all the Battle Pass challenges from both Week 1 and Week 2. After claiming it, get outta dodge!
That’s Week 2 done with. We’ve gotten a lot done this season already, and we’re not quite ready for Halloween just yet. What are your thoughts so far? Let us know in the comments!
