Suppressed weapons are your best friends and worst enemies in week 1 of Fortnite Wild Weeks.
Epic Games announced several changes with the v17.40 update in Fortnite Chapter 2 – Season 7 earlier this week, including more chances to acquire XP and level up their battle pass. However, to gain XP players will have to complete a couple of Wild Week Challenges, which have returned to Fortnite after a brief hiatus.
The Wild Weeks event will last two weeks, with participants having the opportunity to accomplish three challenges each week. The first week of the event is known as “Sneak Week,” and it allows players to get their hands on most of the suppressed weapons. The Wild Week 1 challenges, as you might’ve already guessed, revolve around using these suppressed weapons.
Sneak Week began on Thursday, August 19, the same day that the Week 11 Epic Quests were released. Every Epic and above Pistol, Assault Rifle, and Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle replaced their suppressed counterparts once the event went live. Furthermore, the map’s aliens have also planted numerous Prop-ifiers around the island.
Fortnite Wild Week 1 Challenges:
- Deal damage with suppressed weapons (0/1000) – 20000 XP
- Stage 1 of 2 – Deal damage with suppressed weapons (0/5000) – 30000 XP
- Stage 2 of 2 – Deal damage with suppressed weapons (0/20000) – 50000 XP
Players must essentially locate each of the suppressed weapons across the map and use them to do as much damage as possible. As you can see above, there are three stages to completing this challenge, with each stage boasting increased XP rewards.
Each stage presents a higher goal for players to achieve, especially the third and final level of the challenge set which requires a total of 20,000 damage to be dealt using suppressed weapons. The payoff is worth it, though, as after completing all the challenges, players will receive an additional 50,000 XP on top of the first 50,000 XP they received from completing the initial stages of these Wild Week challenges.
Completing this first set of challenges will mark an end to the first week of Wild Weeks. The second week of Wild Weeks will begin on August 26 and will feature similar challenges. Neither the theme nor the challenges have been announced as of now, but be sure to stay tuned for additional updates in the future.
