Completing Time Trials, and their multiple respected time trial locations, is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.

Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Season 7 rewards. Note you'll need to be a Battle Pass holder in order to undertake this challenge.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. That said, there are still plenty of other Fortnite Challenges as part of Fortnite Season 8, including Ice Sculptures, Three Dinosaurs and Four Hot Springs locations, Fortnite Jigsaw Puzzle locations, the Paradise Palm Treasure Map location, and how to Dial the Durr Burger and Pizza Pit number on big telephones. Also coming very soon is the Fortnite Avengers crossover. Not long to wait now!

Fortnite Time Trials locations

Everyone's favourite (not really) challenge is back! Thankfull though, while you only need to complete a total of two Timed Trials, there are a total of three Timed Trial locations we've found so far in Fortnite, which gives you some room to breathe:

This time they need to be completed in an X-4 Stormwing plane, but as for the trials themselves specifically, they are found:

North-West of Lazy Links, on the edge of the map in quadrant E2:

South of Loneley lodge, on the eastern edge of the map, between J5 and J6:

South of Frosty Flights, in the south-west corner of the map, in A9:

Finding these tough to complete? The following section on how Time Trials in Fortnite work can help.

Otherwise, once you are done, there are plenty of other Challenges to take on this week - so keep playing!

How Time Trials in Fortnite work

For the Week 9 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Complete timed trials in an X-4 Stormwing (2 total, 10 Battle Stars)

Owners of the Season 5 and 6 Battle Passes will recognise this challenge, and it's pretty similar (and actually easier - you only need to complete two compared to three or five, and you also get 10 Battle Stars instead of five. Rejoice!).

So what does it involve? First of all you'll need to find a plane - our page on Fortnite X-4 Stormwing plane locations can help there!

Otherwise, several Timed Trials have appeared throughout the map, usually represented by a holographic-style stopwatch. This time however they're much easier to find: they appear in the sky, in the shape of a giant blue circle with a plane in the middle - because you need to complete them in an X-4 Stormwing plane.

To activate a Time Trial, you need to find the symbol and fly through it with a plane.

This will immediately start a Time Trial. To complete it, you need to fly through each of the blue markers that appears nearby. It can be pretty tough, in our experience, but it should be doable if you're a decent pilot.

Our advice is to first activate the trial, then look at where you need to fly, have a practise run at it and worst case try again, now you know where to go.

Once it's complete, be sure to actually finish the match, even if the in-game tracker says it's counted - just to be fully sure it's properly added to your challenge total.


Right now there's the Avengers Endgame event. Meanwhile, the latest Fortnite Week 8 Challenges include Ice Sculptures, Three Dinosaurs and Four Hot Springs locations, Fortnite Jigsaw Puzzle locations, the Paradise Palm Treasure Map location, and how to Dial the Durr Burger and Pizza Pit number on big telephones. There are also pirate camp locations and Fortnite Discovery Battle Star locations to find, too, the latter of which will help you unlock the Ruin skin. Don't forget the latest Fortnite patch notes, either.


What were Fortnite Time Trials like previously

Fancy a bit of nostalgia? Here's what Fortnite's Time Trials were like in Season 5:

As you can see, there's little crossover between the Season 6 challenges - and obviously a lot fewer cursed areas to contend with, too. And of course, Leaky Lake was still named Loot Lake. RIP.
