Battle Pass Challenges (And Solutions!) for Week 9, Season 6 of Fortnite Battle Royale

Why clowns, Epic? Why ever clowns?

From all four of us here at Storm Shield, to all of you out there in the big wide world, we hope you're all having a wonderful Giant Goku Balloon Day. We know the holidays can be hard for a lot of folk, either because of their families or in spite of them, so if you need to sneak off for a few minutes and knock out a couple Fortnite Battle Royale challenges, we won't judge. Here's what you'll be doing over your extended weekend:

  • Get 30 seconds of airtime in a vehicle [Free | 5 Battle Stars]
  • Get a score of 10 or more on 3 different Carnival Clown Boards [Free | 5 Battle Stars]
  • Consume 5 mushrooms
    • Gain 75 shield using Small Shield Potions
      • Gain 100 shield using Shield Potions
        • Gain shield via Chug Jug [Free | 10 Battle Stars total]
  • Deal 300 damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade [Battle Pass | 5 Battle Stars]
  • Deal 10,000 damage to opponent structures with Dynamite [Battle Pass | 5 Battle Stars]
  • Get 3 Rocket or Grenade Launcher eliminations [Battle Pass | 10 Battle Stars]
  • Deal 100 damage with Grenades to opponents
    • Deal 100 damage with Grenade Launchers to opponents
      • Deal 100 damage with Rocket Launchers to opponents [Battle Pass | 10 Battle Stars total]

Get 30 seconds of airtime in a vehicle

Without Disco Domination in this week's LTM rotation, safely finding a vehicle and executing sick jumps is gonna be more of a headache than it could be. Those 30 seconds of air don't have to be consecutive at least, so you can spread this out over a few matches if you have to. If you're playing duos or squads, and someone on your team happens to have balloons, plop them in the passenger seat and get ready to ride. Otherwise, just drive off a dang cliff ya goofball!

Get a score of 10 or more on 3 different Carnival Clown Boards

Alright so, these things are like a horrible, cursed version of whack-a-mole, where instead of moles it's balloons and instead of the ground it's a clown. After activating the game, you have to hit at least 10 of the balloons with your pickaxe before time runs out. We're seeing a lot of scuttlebutt on /r/FortniteBR about some pickaxes not granting credit, so maybe switch back to the default just long enough to knock this one out. And then maybe smudge your house? Ugh.

Consume 5 mushrooms, etc

This is like last week's staggered healing challenge, except much better since you can use the items right when you find them, rather than having to damage yourself first. Well, for the most part. In order to gain 75 shield from Small Shield Potions in one round, you will have to take damage to get your shields back below 50, since Small Shield Potions will only raise your shields to a maximum of 50 shield units. We've got a map below for mushroom spawn points, and the little guys usually crop up in groups of five or more, so you'll only have to visit one location.

Deal 300 damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade

We've had pretty good luck with getting explosives from the special supply drops in Food Fight, so that mode is likely your best bet for getting this one done. Stink bombs also work especially well in Food Fight, since players are generally packed into very tight spaces for most of the round. Some of your squad might get caught in the stink but hey, nobody said war would be easy.

Deal 10,000 damage to opponent structures with Dynamite

This sounds like a lot, but remember that Dynamite deals 800 structure damage per explosion to every surface encountered. If you can get a couple good lobs in on some real built-up forts, you'll have this challenge knocked out in no time. The Wild West LTM has the highest drop rate for Dynamite, but since it's duos only right now you may be at a strategic disadvantage when playing solo. Of course, you're only trying to blow things up, not actually win, so it's worth a shot.

Get 3 Rocket or Grenade Launcher eliminations

Again, Food Fight is your best bet for all opponent damage/elimination-based challenges, since the supply drops have good weapons and respawning makes combat endless. We haven't been able to verify if Quad-launcher kills count towards this challenge, so don't hold it against us if they don't!

Deal 100 damage with Grenades to opponents, etc

Epic really, really wants everyone to use explosives this week. Like really, really just needs y'all to get out there and blow each other/everything up. Only needing to do 100 damage with each of these weapons means that you basically just have to land a hit and you're good, but since the challenge is in stages, it'll take three matches minimum to get it done. As stated previously, the Food Fight LTM is this week's gravy train for elimination and damage challenges.

Hidden Tier

It's an odd-numbered week, which means the hidden tier is back! This time you'll find it hangin' out on a barbeque grill on the lake -- peep our map below for specifics.
