Fortnite‘s Season 5 Week 9 challenges are live, giving players a slew of new tasks to complete in exchange for battle stars. One of the new challenges this week tasks players with visiting all the different Stone Head locations, of which there are seven dotted around the battle royale map.
We recommend that players keep track of each Stone Head that they visit, otherwise this task may take a lot longer than it should. It’s worth pointing out that this challenge doesn’t have to be completed in a single match, so Fortnite players can visit as many of the Stone Heads as possible, and if they die, resume their quest in the next match.
As far as “visiting” the Stone Heads go, it seems inconsistent exactly how close players have to get to each Stone Head for it to count toward the challenge. There were a couple of Stone Heads that wouldn’t pop unless we were literally touching them, but others popped when we got relatively close to them. Considering this, players may want to just run up and tag each Stone Head they see just in case.

Besides this challenge, a couple of the other Season 5 Week 9 challenges in Fortnite may give players trouble. For instance, the challenge to follow the Shifty Shafts treasure map may be hard if players go to Shifty Shafts, hunt down the treasure map, and then try to decipher it. The easier method is to just head straight to where the hidden battle star is located, which is the mountain north of Salty Springs and southwest of Dusty Divot.
The other challenges are self-explanatory for the most part, though they will require players to be relatively skilled at the game. For example, there is a challenge to get kills at Tomato Temple, and then another challenge to get assault rifle eliminations. Luckily assault rifles are fairly easy to come by in Fortnite‘s battle royale mode, so as long as players are decent shots, they should be able to complete that challenge eventually.
Fortnite is out now in early access for iOS, Android, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
