Fortnite XP Xtravaganza Week 1: Upgrade Weapons To Uncommon Rarity Locations Guide

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is in full swing with about 4 weeks left before the season ends.

Season 4 began on August 27th and was originally due to end on November 30th, but now has been delayed until December 3rd.

To keep players occupied now that the 10 weeks of challenges are out, Epic Games have released the XP Xtravaganza challenges.

XP Xtravaganza Challenges Week 1

In previous seasons Epic Games have released Overtime Challenges to keep players occupied and still playing the game while they wait for the next season.

The XP Xtravaganza challenges have been released and the first set are labelled as week 1, meaning we will likely see new ones added every week for the next 3-4 weeks before the end of Chapter 2 Season 4.

All of the challenges are team challenges, meaning that if any members of your party do something that works towards it then it will count for you too.

Additionally, all but one are in stages, meaning once you complete a challenge another part will appear.

Overall this gives players a total of 13 challenges to complete.

The challenges are:

  • Deal Damage With Scoped Weapons (3 Stages) - 20,000 XP each
  • Use Superpowers To Eliminate Opponents (3 Stages) - 20,000 XP each
  • Use Rifts (Stage 1) - 20,000 XP
  • Drive Cars Or Trucks Through Rifts (Stage 2) - 20,000 XP
  • Use Rifts In A Single Match (Stage 3) - 20,000 XP
  • Upgrade Weapons to Uncommon Rarity (Stage 1) - 20,000 XP
  • Upgrade Weapons to Rare Rarity (Stage 2) - 20,000 XP
  • Upgrade Weapons to Epic Rarity (Stage 3) - 20,000 XP
  • Visit All Named Locations In A Single Match - 50,000 XP

Upgrade Weapons To Uncommon Rarity

In Chapter 2 the new mechanic of upgrading weapons was added in.

This allows players to upgrade their weapon to a better rarity at the cost of materials.

Fortnite XP Xtravaganza Week 1 Upgrade Weapons
4 TIMES A CHARM: Upgrade 4 weapons to each rarity.

To complete this challenge players need to use the machines to upgrade 4 weapons to Uncommon, from grey to green.

And then the same again but Uncommon to Rare, green to blue.

Then Rare to Epic, blue to purple.

The first challenge will cost a total of 40 of each material.

Next it will cost 400 of each material.

And finally it will cost 600 of each material.

This can be done over multiple matches or you can find 4 weapons of the same rarity and upgrade them all at once if you have the spare materials.

Here is a map of all of the Upgrade Benches:

UPGRADE: Players can use materials to upgrade their weapons to better rarities.

Each Stage is worth 20,000XP so completing this will give a total of 60,000 XP.
