Fortbytes. The daily treats that keep on giving us more Fortnite content. July 5th’s challenge will send us all soaring into the skies above Loot Lake with our recently unlocked Plasma Trails.

We’ve all been completing Fortbyte challenges since Day 1 of Season 9 and it’s been an enjoyable journey. The variety of challenge types could be a little better, but we won’t complain too much about free daily content.

Many of these computer chips will only unlock for players who have earned a Battle Pass Cosmetic. Gradually, the tier required by the challenge has increased as the weeks have passed.

How to complete the Fortbyte #04 Challenge

Completing Fortbyte challenges isn’t necessarily difficult and Epic doesn’t intend for them to be. However, they can be time consuming without a clear path or plan to work from. So, tell you what. We’ll provide the plan and you get the Fortbyte. Win-win, right?

14 Days of Summer & Prior Fortbyte Challenges

Along with the constant bombardment of Fortbytes, we’ve also been experiencing a 100% chance of summer challenges. Epic Games went on vacation left us one of Fortnite’s best events to play around with until they return.

The 14 Days of Summer event tasks differ from Fortbyte and Season 9 Battle Pass challenges in that each one grants a cosmetic rewards. Of course, not all rewards are equal, but it’s always nice to get a little something for our trouble. As of July 5th, Epic has released eleven summer objectives.

In addition to those guides, we’ve also put together a humongous list of Fortbyte challenges. Each and every available Fortbyte can be found along with detailed guides for any applicable task.

With these guides, you’ll be ready for the season’s end with time to spare. Remember, Fortbyte unlock Styles and Pickaxes, so they are definitely worth the effort. We’ll see you in-game as we make sure to complete our challenges as well!
