Epic introduced Blockbuster challenges into the game in Season 4 and by completing the challenges, players were rewarded with a loading screen that revealed the location of a hidden Battle Star. Completing 7 of the 10 challenges rewarded users with the Visitor skin. Epic continued using this format of challenges last season, but called it Road Trip Challenges instead. Upon completing 7 of the 10 challenges, players unlocked the Enforcer skin and Subjugator Back Bling. This season for the Hunting Party skins, players were rewarded with the A.I.M skin and the E.L.I.M Back Bling that counts and displays the number of kills a player has. A Pickaxe for the A.I.M set was leaked, but datamining showed it would be available in the item shop, but it seems that might have changed.
In v6.30, Epic added a second stage to the final Hunting Party challenge. The final (10th) challenge is to complete all the challenges from all 10 weeks and to the left of the challenge it displays “1/2” meaning once that challenge has been completed, another challenge will appear in that spot. Due to the fact the challenge can only be completed in week 10, we won’t know what the challenge is or what the reward will be.

The A.X.E pickaxe that was leaked seems to be the most likely reward for completing the second stage of the final Hunting Party challenge. Dataminers did reveal that there was a line of code for the pickaxe which suggested the pickaxe will be available for purchase in the Item Shop, however it’s possible Epic did this deliberately to hide that this would be a reward for completing stage 2 of the final Hunting Party challenge. It’s also possible Epic could have changed their mind about releasing the A.X.E in the item shop as opposed to rewarded it to players after seeing the reaction of the community.
Either way, it’s almost a guarantee that there’ll be another reward for the Hunting Party skin but we won’t know until we reach week 10. We’ll be sure to keep you updated with the latest.
