Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 6 Challenge Guide: Week 12
Chapter 2 - Season 7 is set to go live on June 8, less than a week from now. With an alien invasion on the horizon, this is likely our last encounter with the current version of the Fortnite island. This means it is also our last chance to finish up the Battle Pass and unlock all of Season 6’s exclusive skins.
Each Week 12 challenge grants a sizable 24,000 XP. Completing all seven Week 12 challenges will grant players a whopping 168,000 XP. With just five days to go in Chapter 2 - Season 6, every ounce of XP is crucial. Players need to act fast if they aim to collect all of the Primal season’s exclusive cosmetics.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at our Challenge Guide below for an in-depth breakdown of every single Week 12 challenge and the best course of action for completing them.
Visit the Zero Point (1) - 24,000 XP
Chapter 2 - Season 6’s final week of challenges is essentially a cumulation of everything we’ve learned and seen throughout the primal season.
To begin, players must visit the Zero Point. The Zero Point was the focus of the single-player mission that kicked off Chapter 2 - Season 6. You, the player, as Agent Jones, was forced to recruit The Foundation in hopes of containing the raging Zero Point. Well, that did not exactly work out. Now, The Foundation is locked away inside the Zero Point.
Players can find the Zero Point smack dab in the middle of the island at The Spire. Go pay your old friend a visit and collect 24,000 XP.

Craft Pistols (3) - 24,000 XP
Players must use the Crafting System to craft three Pistols. To begin, players should land at the Compact Cars point of interest (POI) just northwest of Dirty Docks. This place is covered with Mechanical Parts, the main resource you’ll need to craft Pistols.
Go around the location and place floors under every pile of scrapped cars. This will destroy them and grant even more Mechanical Parts. From here, all you need is a Makeshift Pistol as a base for upgrading. Use your newfound Mechanical Parts on three Makeshift Pistols to complete this challenge.
Defeat a Spire Guardian (1) - 24,000 XP
A circle of Guardian Towers surrounds The Spire. There are six towers total, one at the end of each strip of the fall-coloured landscape. Players need to land at one of these six towers and defeat the Spire Guardian that protects it.
Spire Guardians are surprisingly powerful, so come prepared. Loot a chest or two and grab a gun before starting a fight with one. Once armed, begin your assault on the Spire Guardian. This challenge will complete the moment the Spire Guardian falls.
Hunt Predators (3) - 24,000 XP
The only predators currently present on the Fortnite island are Wolves and Raptors. Players must hunt and slay three of these creatures to complete this challenge.
Wolves often patrol the wooded and mountainous regions of the map. Weeping Woods and Mount Kay are two good places to search for these furry predators. Reports of Raptor sightings have occurred at Stealthy Stronghold, Misty Meadows, The Spire, and Weeping Woods.
Luckily for us, both of these creatures hunt in packs. This means if you spot one, there’s likely at least two more behind it. Search out a pack of these fierce predators and initiate the hunt. Take down three total to receive 24,000 XP.
Tame Boars outside of Colossal Crops (1) - 24,000 XP
Boar-related challenges have been commonplace this season. This one’s a bit tricky, though. Players must tame a Boar, but they can’t do it at the Boar pen located within Colossal Crops.
We’ll have to go elsewhere for our Boar hunting. In general, Boars stay near farmland, so check out The Spire or Boney Burbs as substitute hunting grounds. Boars can be lured with fruit and vegetables, making for easy taming. Alternatively, players may wish to craft a Hunter’s Cloak, using one piece of Meat and two Animal Bones. This cloak will trick the Boar into disregarding the player, allowing for effortless taming. Tame one Boar to gain a new pet and 24,000 XP.
Chicken Glide at Colossal Crops (1) - 24,000 XP
By now, most players are probably familiar with how Chickens work. Hoisting a caught Chicken over your head will allow you to Chicken Glide, granting increased jump height/distance and slow fall.
The best spot to begin this challenge is at Steel Farm, an unmarked POI east of Colossal Crops. This farm has guaranteed Chicken spawns. Plus, it’s right next door to Colossal Crops. Grab a Chicken and start gliding over to Colossal Crops utilising the Chicken Glide. When done right, this is the quickest and easiest method of completing this challenge.
Raid an Artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and Coral Castle (2) - 24,000 XP
Different ancient Artifacts are scattered all around the Stealthy Stronghold and Coral Castle locations. Players must collect two Artifacts total to complete Chapter 2 - Season 6’s final challenge.
The Artifacts at Stealthy Stronghold are coloured orange and green and resemble a piece of architecture from the forgotten Sunny Steps POI. The Artifacts at Coral Castle are golden fish statues.
Each POI has plenty of Artifacts present. Scour the locations for two of these Artifacts to wrap up an action-packed season of challenges.
Congratulations! You’ve made it through another season of Fortnite challenges. We’ll be back in Chapter 2 - Season 7 with a brand-new series of our Fortnite Challenge Guide. Stay tuned here @GGReconEsports for Fortnite news, guides, features, and more.
