Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 is in full swing with about 2 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.

The Galactus event has now been confirmed to take place on December 1st at 4pm EST/9pm GMT

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 3

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 we are currently on week 3.

There will be one more set of challenges next week before the season ends.

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.

Overall this gives players a total of 14 challenges to complete.

The challenges are:

Search Chests, Ammo Boxes, Supply Drops

Looting is a key part of Fortnite.

To find items and weapons players need to loot Chests for weapons and hearable's, Ammo Boxes for ammo to continue fighting opponents, and Supply Drops for higher rarity and more powerful weapons.

Chests and Ammo Boxes are found all across the map, mainly in POIs and other locations with buildings.

RISK VS REWARD: Supply Drops give players higher rarity items, but other players will be looking to fight you for that loot.

Supply Drops appear randomly on the map as the match goes on.

They can be identified by the icon on the map and float down from the sky.

But be warned, if you can see the Supply Drop, so can your opponent and they may want the good loot from it too.

Players need to search 10 of each to complete the 3 stages and complete the challenge.
