Battle Pass Super Styles

Each Fortnite Battle Pass brings Super Styles for the exclusive skins, and this time they’ll likely be for Darth Vader, Malik, Evie, and perhaps some more.

Players will need to reach milestones such as claiming 115 rewards and 15 bonus rewards in the Battle Pass to unlock them.

How to complete Fortnite Season 3, Week 2 Quests

The second batch of Fortnite Chapter 3’s Season 3 Quests is centered around using new additions such as Ballers, Reality Saplings, and the Grapple Glove.

Here are all of the Week 2 Quests in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3:

  • Boost into a Runaway Boulder and dislodge it with a Baller (1) – 15,000 XP
  • Eliminate enemy players with ranged weapons of Epic rarity or better (2) – 15,000 XP
  • Enter the wind tunnel in a Baller at the Screwballer (1) – 15,000 XP
  • Headshot opponents with the Two-Shot Shotgun (5) – 15,000 XP
  • Launch into the air using Geysers (3) – 15,000 XP
  • Pick Weeds around Reality Saplings (5) – 15,000 XP
  • Swing 50 meters or more with the Grapple Glove without touching the ground (10) – 15,000 XP

You shouldn’t have too much difficulty completing Fortnite’s Week 2 Quests as long as you set out to complete them.

Both Reality Saplings and the Two-Shot Shotgun are extremely common, so you just carry the shotgun as often as you can and you’ll soon secure the five headshots. The wind tunnel goes around the Rave Cave POI, so just hop into a baller and enter the wind tunnel to complete this challenge.
