The challenges for Fortnite Season 6, Week 3 have now been revealed and, for the most part, there is nothing too overwhelming. In fact, it looks like a nice Halloween-themed puzzle around the island where you're hurting and getting candy (Battle Stars). However, a particular challenge stands out for being a bit complicated, so we've prepared a quick guide to help you do it quickly.
The challenge in question is "full-time testing", which you might remember from Season 5 when this kind of challenge made its debut. What you have to do and the process to complete it has not changed since then, so here's a breakdown. Scattered around the island are blue stopwatches and, when you take one, you will have a set amount of time to grab the rest of what appears in the area. If you're new to this, it may take some trial and error, as some of the collector's items require you to build your way up to them. Obviously, this means that you will need to have the relevant resources available to create the necessary platforms. In some areas it can also be advantageous to get into a vehicle to do it quickly, so you'll have to figure out if this is the case and then take an ATK.
When it comes to finding time trials, we recommend that you first deal with the other challenges, but keep your eyes open for the blue stopwatch pickups. In particular, the search for a trunk in the Lonely Lodge and the visit of Risky Reels and Wailing Woods are evidence to have as main objective. These two challenges involve traveling around the map, so you're likely to run into some tests along the way. This is a great way to simplify the process of completing the challenge. Fortunately, there are a lot of scattered trials for the island.
The ones we found were located outside the Temple of Pomodoro, which between the coordinates of the grid G3 and G4 on the map. You can find another to the left of Dusty Divot at F5, one on the hill south of Tilted Towers in D6. There is also one on the bridge near Shifty Shafts at the D8. Take a look at the pictures below for precise locations.
Once you have completed three of the time trials, you will get 10 precious battle stars. The rest of the challenges should not be that difficult. Take a look at our full account of Season 6, the challenges of Week 3 for more information on those.
Fortnite currently feels a bit spooky for Halloween, and if you want to be more effective in putting fear into other Fortnite players, the developer of Epic Games has released a series of new cosmetics that are worth to verify. These include the Skull Trooper skin, which makes the long-awaited return with some extra customization options. There is also the new Skull Ranger skin for the female character model, the Skull Sickle Harvesting Tool essential for that harbinger of doom look, and the Crypt Cruiser Glider that makes you look like death floating in the skies of Fortnite. These can be purchased through the store in the game using V-Bucks.
However, the hotter element of Fortnite game this Halloween is undoubtedly the Back Bling of Ghost Portal, which emits ghostly appearances of other skins. To achieve this you need to complete the Skull Trooper challenges, which will require quite a lot of dedication. You can see all the Skull Trooper challenges and the new cosmetics here.
If you need a break from the challenge, Epic has introduced a new, limited-time mode called Disco Domination. This mode commits two teams to take control of the majority of dance floors on the island. Of course, to secure a dance floor you have to dance long enough to lift a disco ball. This mode was added as part of the 6.02 update, which also included the new Quad Launcher weapon. You can read about these additions as well as other changes and modifications to Fortnite 6.02 patch notes.
