It's not uncommon for Fortnite to have themed weeks by the end of a Season. They're usually quests surrounding a type of weapons or items that are temporarily put in the game. It's a fun way to earn experience points and level up some more before the Season comes to an end and its Battle Pass becomes unaccessible.
Sideways weapons have been put back in the game and even though no one knows for how long they're going to be around, until the next update you can do Sideways-related quests. Here is how you can quickly complete the latest Sideways Showdown Week quests.
Sideways Showdown Week Quests
Until next Tuesday (update day) it's officially Sideways Showdown week and you can play around with Sideways weapons to complete challenges and earn some experience points. Each quests you complete you'll receive 25,000 XP as a reward for your effort. Here's what you'll need to do.
- Collect a Sideways Minigun and a Sideways Rifle in a single match (2)
Sideways Miniguns and Sideways Rifles are the only Sideways weapons that you can find in the game at the current moment. You can find them naturally as floor loot so be sure to explore a lot and keep an eye out. Collect these two weapons in the same match to complete the quest.
- Damage opponents with Sideways weapons (500; 1,500; 4,500; 10,000)
Next you'll have to deal damage to opponents with any of the two available Sideways weapons. This quest has four stages and you'll be required to deal more damage as you progress. Each time you complete a stage you'll receive 25,000 XP.
- Overheat any Sideways gun
Sideways weapons can't be reloaded but if they never stopped shooting it would make them overpowered, especially the minigun. To counter this, they'll eventually overheat. One of your tasks this week is to overheat one of these guns and all you have to do to achieve this is simply shoot them until they stop due to excessive use. Don't worry, this effect only lasts a couple of seconds.
- Upgrade a Sideways weapon at an upgrade bench
You can upgrade a Sideways weapon at any upgrade bench. You can find one at any gas station with a garage. Then, hold the weapon in your hand and use the bench to upgrade it.
