Collect 40 medals Fortnite
Some players seem to be confused with what Fortnite medals are and how to collect them. The medals aren’t to be mistaken for the XP coins that are found all around the Fortnite map. Medals are collected by completing tasks in-game such as opening a certain number of chests or eliminating a player.
Medals are easy to collect, especially in Team Rumble. You can get a medal for playing your first match of the day. You’ll also get medals for getting 4, 8 and 12 assists in Team Rumble which should be easy to collect in one match.
There’s different types of medals, all of which should count for this challenge. Here’s a list (challenge can change depending on game mode):
- Bronze medal – eliminate 1 player, place top 10, assist 1 elimination, search 3 chests/llamas/supply drops. (medal for each task)
- Silver medal – eliminate 4 players, place top 25, assist 4 eliminations, search 7 chests/llamas/supply drops. (medal for each task)
- Gold medal – eliminate 8 players, place top 10, assist 8 eliminations, search 12 chests/llamas/supply drops. (medal for each task)
Other medals including landing first and catching the first fish of the game. Weapon specialist challenges will also count towards collecting medals for this challenge.
