The Wild Weeks are back in Fortnite and bring not only plenty of variety, but also heaps of XP into the game. In this article, we are here to show you what changes are made to the Battle Royale each week and what missions there are to complete.

What are the Wild Weeks?

To get familiar with Sideways Showdown, let's briefly explain what they are. Wild Weeks are a selection of weekly challenges and rewards that take on a different theme week-by-week throughout the duration of the event. They bring many changes to the core Fortnite gameplay, and modify certain aspects of the weapon and loot pool.

Each week will have a different theme and will slightly change the way that you play and win a lobby in Fortnite. Also, with each new Wild Week, the changes in Fortnite from the previous week will be reset.
