The Fortnite High Stakes challenges is one of the most exciting parts of the new High Stakes event, along with the new Grappler item, a limited time mode called The Getaway, and plenty more. However, we’re here to help you complete the Fortnite High Stakes challenges so you can earn all of the remaining styles for the Wild Card skin.
Epic have confirmed that all of the new additions will be coming to the game this week on top of our normal Fortnite week 9 challenges. The Fortnite High Stakes challenges are not the first challenges of this type. During Gamescom, the Fortnite Tomatohead challenges were only available to owners who owned that skin. However, the challenges to unlock the new Tomatohead style were pretty bland, and it looks like Epic Games have spiced things up a bit for the High Stakes event.
This time, however you don’t have to purchase the Fortnite Wild Card skin from the Item Shop to access the Fortnite High Stakes challenges. The Wild Card skin will also launch with the Cuff Case back bling at the same time as the challenges. Here are the Fortnite High Stakes challenges and how to complete them.

There are a few extra cosmetics to complement the heist-themed ensemble that can only be unlocked by finishing the Fortnite High Stakes challenges. Complete all three to unlock the crowbar harvesting tool. Here’s what you’ll need to do and what you’ll receive as a reward:
Play matches of The Getaway (0/10) – 5,000 XP
Simply play ten matches of the new mode as soon as it goes live and get a neat XP boots, what’s not to love?
Deal damage to jewel carrying opponents (0/500) – High Stakes Spray
This sounds like the toughest one of the lot as it will require you to get involved in a lot of fights and deal damage to a specific target, which isn’t always easy in Fortnite. Spray and pray or explosive are a good way of guaranteeing at least a few points of damage.
Pick up a jewel in different matches of Getaway (0/5 total) – High Stakes contrail
Again, this challenge will require an active approach to this new LTM. In order to grab a jewel you will need to move fast, push aggressively, or get very lucky.
If you’re after more information on Fortnite week 9, make sure you stay up to date on what else is coming to the game this week with Fortnite patch notes 5.4. Also, if you haven’t finished last week’s Fortnite week 8 challenges – including your Fortnite Road Trip week 8 challenge, and where to search between three oversized seats – make sure you don’t miss out on those sweet, sweet Battle Stars. For now, though, that’s everything we know about the Fortnite High Stakes challenges.
