Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 is officially released, and it undoubtedly brought a wide variety of changes to the popular battle royale. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is that a new season also means a new set of challenges to complete, so it’s no surprise that Chapter 4 kicks things off with the usual launch week challenges. This time around, however, there are also explorer quests that challenge you to explore the new map. We’ll give the full scoop on it all below so you can start racking up some XP to complete this season’s exciting battle pass.
There are nine Explorer challenges to complete. These mostly ask you to look around the new map and interact with its new features. Each of them grants you 20,000 XP for completion.
Visit the Citadel place of the anvil and broken slabs  landing at the locations below.
You will need to search for Oathbound Chests, which seem more likely to breed in medieval areas of the island, although we are still testing this theory. These regions can be found on the left side and bottom right of the map, easily identified by autumnal trees and ancient, mostly wooden structures. Also, while these chests aren’t the only place to find a Shockwave Hammer you’ll need to complete a challenge, they seem to have a higher chance of dropping one.
Meanwhile, you will have to land at hotspots on the map to conclude a challenge, too. This new game feature marks a handful of POIs with a gold name on your map screen, meaning they will contain high-level loot. Beware, however, that these locations tend to be hotly contested, so be careful after landing.
Be sure to press the appropriate button to choose and activate your reality augmentations throughout the game to complete this challenge.
The full list of challenges is below.

Launch Week Challenges
There are seven launch week challenges to clear, and they’re pretty self-explanatory, requiring you to do certain things that you’re very likely to accomplish just by playing naturally. Each of them grants you 16,000 XP for completion.
