Finishing the battle pass can be difficult for the average player, but completing the weekly quests is an easy way to rack up battle stars to unlock all of the battle pass rewards. Weekly quests will remain available until the end of the season, so take your time!
This season, Fortnite quests work a tiny bit differently. Rather than getting five or six quests per week that you can do simultaneously, you will get three quests that have two parts each. This prevents you from knocking them all out at once, as you will need to complete part one to access part two. This season also didn’t start with a set of “week 0” quests the way other seasons did. We jumped straight into week 1, baby!
Weekly quests are released every Thursday at 6 a.m. PDT/9 a.m EDT. Here’s a running list of all of the weekly quests in Chapter 4 Season 3 of Fortnite.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3 Week 1 Quests
- Stage 1 of 2: Travel distance while grinding (500)
Stage 2 of 2: Land at a ruins location and finish in the top 20 players — 20,000 XP
- Stage 1 of 2: Damage opponents with the FlapJack Rifle or SMGs (2,000)
Stage 2 of 2: Spend bars to reroll augments (300) — 30,000 XP
- Stage 1 of 2: Eliminate players at named locations (7)
Stage 2 of 2: Complete a job at the job board in different matches (4) — 40,000 XP
- Get covered in mud and hit enemy players with the Thermal DMR (10) — 1 level
We’re not sure what the requirements are for getting the Thermal DMR/mud quest to appear, but among four Fortnite players at Polygon, only one of them had it show up. We’ll update this guide when we figure it out.
