Fortnite has added two new secret challenges in the latest 14.20 update and completing them can grant you 40,000 XP.

Each update Fortnite adds a few secret challenges that once completed grant XP to players. These challenges are fairly easy to complete and certainly worth doing. Previously we had two secret challenges called “The Slurp Talk” and “The Event of The Year” that gave use 40,000 XP.

After the 14.20 update, we also got new secret challenges. This time the challenges are called “The Aftermath” and “The Lair”. Completing these two challenges will also grant you 40,000 XP. These challenges are as simple as visiting a spot on the Fortnite map so they are extremely easy to complete.
