Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges Cheat Sheet
Just as with the New World challenges, you’ll find eleven to complete as part of the Open Water Mission. It would appear, too, that you will receive only XP as rewards once again, perhaps something that will continue on throughout Season 11. Every challenge you complete will earn you a hefty 14,000 XP, which will go towards leveling up your Battle Pass Tier. Completing eight of the eleven challenges should bag you the Open Water Loading Screen. Do remember that other players will be trying to complete these challenges as well as you, so be careful.
These challenges have been leaked by reliable Fortnite data miner Lucas7yoshi. So while they are likely to be correct, please bear in mind that they are subject to change. We will update this guide if the challenges do change.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Land at Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs, and Dirty Docks
This challenge should be straightforward enough to understand. Simply land at these three named locations (one per match). We’re unsure whether you’ll need to do so in the order seen above, but we’d suggest landing at the Named Locations in the following order, just to be safe:
- Craggy Cliffs
- Salty Springs
- Dirty Docks
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Hide inside Hideouts in different matches
Hideouts are a brand-new feature that was introduced along with Season 11. These take the form of new map details such as Haystacks and Dumpsters. You are able to hide in these, hopefully, away from enemy eyes. When you spot one, simply run over to it and press the button prompt the game tells you.
To complete this challenge, you will need to hide in a Hideout in three different matches. That’s one Hideout per match. Locate yourself a Haystack or Dumpster and get hidden.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Search Chests at Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows
As per usual, you’ll need to find and open seven chests in order to complete this challenge. There should be plenty to go around for everyone, so there’s no need for fighting. Remember to look for chests in either Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows only and you should complete this challenge easily enough.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Eliminate opponents with a Sniper Rifle
You’ll need to eliminate two opponents with a Sniper Rifle in order to complete this challenge. It would seem that you can do this in different matches, too, rather than in a single game.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Be crouched within 20m of an opponent for a total of 10 seconds
You see an enemy close to you, get to crouching. To complete this challenge, you’ll need to crouch down within 20m of any opponent you see for at least ten seconds. It won’t be easy, as you may get killed before ten seconds is up, but you should do it if you persevere.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Deal damage with Pistols to opponents
Find yourself a Pistol and deal 500 damage to any opponents you see to complete this challenge. It should be easy enough.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Search Ammo Boxes in a single match
In order to complete this challenge, you’ll need to find and open seven Ammo Boxes in a single match. This might prove trickier than you want it to be, but you should get it done over a week. We recommend looking inside buildings and shelters for Ammo Boxes, but you should find them just about everywhere.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Get an elimination from 50m or further
You should be able to complete this challenge if you have already got an elimination with a Sniper Rifle as per the challenge detailed above. If not, simply shoot at any enemies you spot in the distance and you should complete this challenge before long. Sniper Rifles will be your best choice here, for sure.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Survive Storm phases
In order to complete this challenge, you will need to survive ten different Storm phases. You will be able to do this in as many matches as it takes. All this means is that you will need to make it through to the end of ten different Storm phases, which should be easy enough.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Deal damage within 10 seconds of leaving a Hideout
Coupling this challenge with the Hideout one above, you should be able to complete both easily enough. Simply remain hidden in a Hideout until you spot an enemy. Jump out and deal 150 damage within ten seconds of leaving the Hideout. The only trouble we could see from this challenge is actually coming across an opponent while hiding.
Fortnite Season 11 Open Water Mission Challenges | Search hidden ‘O’ found in the Open Water Loading Screen
While we’re unsure if you will need to own the Open Water Loading Screen in order to complete this challenge or not (you get it by completing eight of these eleven challenges), we can tell you where you should find the hidden ‘O’.
Simply head to the location we’ve highlighted in the map above in order to find the hidden ‘O’ and search it by holding the button prompt you see on-screen. It should be underneath the building on stilts at the north of Craggy Cliffs.
