Leaked 'Fortnite' Week 3 Challenges Include Clay Pigeons and Launchpads

Time to get some target practice. 

There’s a new Fortnite update out on Tuesday containing quite a few changes to the game. We won’t see the Week 3 challenges until they officially go live on Thursday, but in the meantime, it looks like they’ve already leaked online from a pretty reliable source.

Fortnite Tracker posted the Fortnite: Battle Royale Week 3 Challenges on Tuesday. Four of the seven tasks are pretty typical, requiring that you eliminate enemies, finding chests, or causing a specific amount of damage. The other three challenges are a bit unique, and one will definitely require a pair of eyes in the back of the head.

The special challenge for Week 3 is “Shoot a Clay Pigeon at different locations.” Clay pigeon hurlers appeared after the v5.10 update in five different locations on the island. Players simply have to walk up, activate the device and a clay pigeon flies out. Shooting it will earn a point for the player, displayed on the scoreboard next to it. Problem is, these locations will likely be filled with players, especially when the challenges go live on Thursday. So be prepared for a fight when trying to complete this challenge. Or better yet, stop by to get some easy kills.

Another challenge that is a bit easier is the using the Launchpad. The high-flying trap item is an epic drop, allowing players to fly into the air and re-enter glide mode. Finding and using one should be easy enough, though it may take a bit of perseverance to get your hands on the rare item. Finally, the last of the interesting challenges is a new treasure map that players will find in Flush Factory. Use the map to find a Battle Star somewhere on the island (or just check back later this week for our official guide).

The Week 3 Challenges will go live on Thursday. Players will not have to finish the second-week tasks before then, but they shouldn’t wait until the end of the season or else risk failing to complete the challenges before they expire.

Clay pigeon hurlers weren’t the only new addition in Tuesday’s Fortnite update. A special Easter egg paying tribute to the failed rescue mission of a player named Chaperdoodle also showed up on the island.
