Epic's Fortnite: Battle Royale has rolled out Week 6 set of challenges, which will, among other things, have players scaling mountains and looking between a Metal Bridge, Three Billboards and Crashed Bus. Of course, we got your back.

Of course, the challenges are available to all Fortnite Season 3 Battle Pass owners, but even if you're a cheapskate - it doesn't hurt knowing where the prey will be. Epic is upping the ante somewhat, with three of Fortnite's Challenges rated as hard.

First up is dealing 500 damage with SMGs, which awards 5 stars and should be easy enough. Interestingly enough, it seems like Epic's aware of the eternal shotgun dependencies of some Fortnite players, with earlier Week Challenges challenging them to use SMGs and pretty much any weapon that isn't a shotgun.

Searching seven Chests in Anarchy Acres earns you 5 Battle Stars, although it may require more than a single drop. While the Acres can hold up to seven Chests, the likelihood is pretty low.

Placing a Cozy Campfire is pretty self explanatory and earns you 5 stars as well. Next up is climbing 10 different mountain peaks, all of which should be visible from the map screen. That concludes what Epic calls the easy part.

Epic says that this week's Fortnite Battle Star is located between a Metal Bridge, Three Billboards and a Crashed Bus. The challenge yields 10 stars, just go up here and start hacking away at the trees.

Explosive Weapon Eliminations requires killing three Fortnite players with anything that goes boom. We're talking the new guided missile, rocket launcher, grenade or the sneaky remote explosive, any of which can earn you 10 stars.

The last Fortnite challenge is killing three enemies in Retail Row, which shouldn't be nearly as hard as Epic would have you believe. With world, dog and its flees immediately dropping upon seeing the cursed Tilted Towers, finding three unsuspecting victims in Retail Row should be a breeze.

Note that we've included pictures of Fortnite's Secret Dance locations as well as Ice Cream Trucks, both of which were featured in earlier weekly challenges. In case you haven't already finished them, you have ample time to do it until the Fortnite Season is over. So, happy hunting.
