Fortnite Season 7 Week 13 Challenges

Fortnite Season 7, Week 13 is nearly here, and it will bring one of the last chances to quickly level up during this season. With tons of XP up for grabs and just two weeks left on the season, you’ll want to hone in on these final few Legendary and Epic Quests if you haven’t climbed your Battle Pass to tier 100–or 200 if you’re in it for the enlightened skins.

Doctor Slone’s endgame is well in motion in Week 13.

On the Legendary Quest side, you’ll be working for Marigold this week for reasons that aren’t yet clear. More Slone sabotage? Perhaps, though we’ll need to see the in-game dialogue to make sense of it all. We’ll have standalone guides on the following quests: open mission kit, then place jammer outside IO base in a single match and destroy IO intel. Everything else can be found within this hub here. Note that we are actively investigating how to repair IO equipment, but expect the solution to be found here very soon.

To leave secret documents at a bus stop, look for the prompt at the bus stop outside of Holly Hatchery. It’s on the west end next to the road that separates the town from the Viking ship docked nearby. You can use our NPC guide to talk to Joey, Sunny, or Dreamflower. Notice it says “or,” so just one will do the trick.

When it’s time to leave an IO car at an alien settlement, your best bet is to drop into a dish station where you’ll always find at least one IO car, then drive it to Holly Hatchery. The nearest dish station is on the cliffs west of Believer Beach. To build structures at Corny Complex, you simply need to place built materials like walls and ramps–25 of them to be precise. It doesn’t have to be pretty, so collect enough materials (or play Team Rumble where you start with plenty) and build to your heart’s desire at Corny Complex.

You can pick up Marigold’s message at a dead drop within Weeping Woods. If you’ve been playing all season, you actually set up those dead drops back in Week 2. Now it’s time to collect the messages left for you there like you’re in an episode of The Americans. Use our full guide here.

The final Legendary Quest says to deploy pallets with cat food around the IO base. That’s Corny Complex again, and you’ll find prompts to leave cat food on all sides of the big red barn in the middle of the region. You can’t miss them.

Holly Hatchery has been a challenge-completing hotspot all season.

Moving onto Epic Quests, there are a few more tricky ones. To visit five radar dish stations in a single match, you will almost certainly need a vehicle, and a UFO may be ideal, though a car with off-road tires will work well as a plan B. You can usually find off-road tires at gas stations.

Drop into any outer dish station, like that in Stealthy Stronghold or the one west of Believer Beach, and follow a path that makes sense based on your current Storm circle. Getting to all five in a single match could prove tough, so we recommend just staying out of people’s way and hope they stay out of yours.

Tallying 10 headshots is easier than it sounds. In Fortnite, each headshot hit counts, not just headshot eliminations. With this in mind, head to a dish station or Holly Hatchery where NPC enemies roam the areas. Line up your shot on their heads to hit them ten times. Their increased health bars should allow you to headshot them ten times in one firefight, especially at Holly Hatchery where multiple alien “trespassers” hang out.

You’ve probably been upgrading weapons all season, but in case you haven’t, look for Upgrade Stations within many named locations, and even some unnamed such as Risky Reels. Upgrading to Epic (purple) or Legendary (orange) will take several hundred gold bars depending on your weapon’s starting rarity, so to do it cheaply, upgrade a Rare (blue) weapon just the once for 400 gold bars to make it Epic.

As for the Wild Weeks Quests this week, we detailed in the 17.50 patch notes how IO and alien weapons will be more abundant this week, so just favor those when you find them. As usual, these Wild Weeks challenges are best done in Team Rumble where your allies’ progress counts toward your own too.
