Season 6 of Fortnite is here and, as you might expect, week 1 is ripe with a slew of new challenges to check off your list. With it being the start of a new season, many of the challenges pertain to new mechanics that have just been introduced. For starters, this new update comes with a crafting mechanic, which adds a substantial change to the way many will approach certain situations. Along with that are the wild animals that spawn throughout the map, in addition to map alterations.
There are challenges that correspond to all of these mechanics, so you might be stumped on how to complete them since these features are brand new to the game. In this guide, we’ll go through each and every one of the new week 1 challenges, and we’ll provide more details on getting through some of the trickier ones. Here are Fortnite’s season 1, week 6 challenges and how to complete them.
Season 6, week 1 challenge list
We always recommend to at least take a glance at a new set of challenges so you can make a mental note of what you need to do for the week. Many of the quests pertain to crafting, which you’ll likely do anyway, while others might be trickier.
Below is a list of week 1’s new challenges:
- Hunt Wildlife
- Craft Primal weapons using bones and makeshift weapons
- Craft a Hunter’s Cloak
- Talk to characters
- Collect mechanical parts from vehicles, trailers, buses, or tractors
- Craft mechanical weapons using mechanical parts and a makeshift weapon
- Find golden artifacts near The Spire
- Craft items
Since so many of them involve crafting, you’ll want to spend a lot of time gathering resources and experimenting with different combinations of materials. It’s not hard, but it is a new feature, so it’ll take a bit of time to get used to. You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the new resources like animal bones and mechanical parts, along with the weapons that spawn on the ground.
Here are guides on some of the harder challenges for week 1 of season 6.
Season 6, week 1 challenge guide
Craft Primal weapons using bones and makeshift weapons
Primal weapons are crafted with animal bones, a new resource introduced in season 6. For more on crafting, check out our dedicated guide below.
Craft a Hunter’s Cloak
A Hunter’s Cloak is an item that throws off the scent of wild animals, so it’s a good idea to have one in your back pocket if you plan on approaching wolves or boars. Click the link below for more details on how to make a Hunter’s Cloak.
Craft mechanical weapons using mechanical parts and a makeshift weapon
Mechanical weapons are traditional firearms you’ve gotten used to throughout Fortnite. Think SMGs, shotguns, or assault rifles. You can make them by using mechanical parts, so check the guide below on how to do that.
Find golden artifacts near The Spire
As part of the new area on the map called The Spire, there are three hidden golden artifacts for you to collect. The guide below goes into more detail on where to find them.
And those are the harder challenges you might be stuck on for the first week of Fortnite season 6. Fortunately, the challenges aren’t too difficult — they just require some knowledge of the game’s new crafting system, which is easy to master after a few matches.
