Fortnite BR Week 3 Challenges Bug - Unlocks in Zero Seconds

Week 3 battlepass challenges in Fortnite Battle Royale were supposed to go live less than an hour ago, but there seems to be an issue. A lot of players are reporting being unable to see them, and getting a message that simply says “unlocks in 0 seconds”. Since everyone is eager to get a head start on finding the Flush Factory treasure map, opening chests in Fatal Fields and shooting the clay pigeons, it’s understandable that those who can’t are unhappy.

Fortnite BR Week 3 Challenges Bug – Unlocks in Zero Seconds

Week 3 challenge unlocks in 0 seconds

If the reports on Reddit and other community channels are anything to go by, the issue is pretty widespread. If you’re affected, you could try restarting the game, or your system, but there seems to be no solution. It’s most probably a server side bug, and the developers will have to fix it before you can start completing those challenges. This already happened once, in the previous season, and players had to wait for Epic to fix it.

In the meantime, why not take care of some of the previous weeks’ tasks? If you haven’t kept up, there’s quite a number of season 5 battlepass challenges you won’t be able to finish just by playing. Sure, a lot of them are just doing damage with a certain weapon, or opening chests in a certain location – those are things you’re eventually going to accomplish without even trying.

On the other hand, some are nigh impossible to tick off without serious effort. For example, the ones with treasure maps. It’s hard to imagine a situation you end up near a star without actively looking for it. Fortunately, you have time until the season is over, which won’t happen for another couple of months. You can leave this week’s challenges for later – a patch is bound to unlock them soon enough, and you won’t have to deal with the onslaught of people.

      Haha, special snowflake here needs compensation for a patch not working? It’s a free game, still in beta. You don’t need compensation, or even really deserve It. Not just you specifically; there’s alot of complaining in this thread, y’all need to suck it up. Smh.
