If you attempted to dive into the Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges (opens in new tab) last night and thought you could quickly tick off a couple, you’ll probably have noticed that the Fortnite replay challenge wasn’t working. Epic Games stated that it was aware of the issues and a patch was inbound. Well, that patch is now here and rather than fixing the Fortnite (opens in new tab) replay challenge, it’s actually replaced it with a totally different challenge entirely.
So this week, instead of simply having to watch a replay, you’ve now got to revive five other players, which definitely isn’t on the same difficulty level.

Epic Games earlier tweet, which you can see below alerted players that there were some issues with v4.2 that may affect some challenges, which we had confirmation included the Fortnite replay challenge issue not working. But unfortunately it seems a fix was not found.
We’ve discovered an issue that’s going to delay the release of v4.2. Due to this delay some quests may not function until the build releases.We’ll update you once we have a more accurate time frame.May 15, 2018
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time players have had issues with the replay tools, with complaints of corrupted files, and other issues. Epic Games was quick to fix the issues, so hopefully that’s a sign of things to come for this particular quirk.
Thankfully, the other Fortnite Season 4 (opens in new tab) challenges have all worked since the Battle Pass Challenges went live, but all are more complex to complete than simply watching a match replay. One of them requires hunting down 10 adorable rubber duckies, which are hidden around the map, pretty similar to how the Fortnite Gnome locations (opens in new tab) worked back in Season 3. There’s also a treasure map to follow in Salty Springs.
