Fortnit each set of weekly challenges in Season 9 is divided up into two categories

on May 16 at 03:36 PM
Tactical decisions in the Battle Royale genre begin before you've made the jump to the battlefield, and Fortnite is no different. When you're on the battle bus, assess how confident you are when engaging enemies and pick your landing spot accordingly. Like in previous seasons, each set of weekly challenges in Season 9 is divided up into two categories, Fortnite Boost that are available to everyone, and those reserved for players who've purchased a Battle Pass. It's likely the loading screens from the even numbered weeks will link in to the Fortnite Fortbytes, which we should know more about in Week 2, and the exclusive Utopia skin is also linked to the Fortbytes rather than Weekly Challenges. There's still a Season 9 banner to be had, showing a blimp hovering over the neon city, if you manage to beat all the Utopia Challenges for the complete 10 weeks during this season.

The area where the coordinates converge is just south of Lonely Lodge; you can see its exact location marked on the map below. Make your way to the area and the Battle Star will appear. Collect it as you would any other item in the game, then finish the match and you'll level your Battle Pass up by one full tier. Using your pickaxe, break down trees for wood, walls for brick, and anything metal for, well, metal. Ripping down too many trees or huge buildings will give away your position, so it can be beneficial to extract as many resources from an area as you can whilst also leaving the structure intact.

Landing into a populated area may be stressful in Fortnite, but if you're lucky enough to find a decent weapon early enough, it can make a huge difference to your early game confidence by getting a couple of early kills. This means that even if you don't spring for a Pass right away, you will have access to Fortnite Boosting, and you will retroactively unlock any rewards you would have earned if you decide to purchase it partway through the season.

Unlocking the Utopia outfit involves collecting 90 of the 100 Fortbytes rather than completing Utopia or Weekly Challenges. The reward for doing this is the as yet unnamed mystery Utopia skin, which is of Legendary rarity and will likely arrive with an extra set of challenges to beat that will then unlock additional styles. If you're familiar with how Season 8's Discovery challenges worked, you'll know there are a few caveats to keep in mind before you can find Season 9 Utopia challenge rewards.
