Three of the seven challenges are a bit tougher than the others. Damaging Loot Sharks at Sweaty Sands, searching for chests or ammo boxes at Rickety Rig, finishing in the top 25 after landing at Misty Meadows, and getting some eliminations at Steamy Stacks should be easy for any decent Fortnite player.

The other three, however, might require some guidance.

Dealing damage after landing from the Whirlpool at Hydro 16 can be a bit tricky, as you need to deal damage 10 seconds after hitting the ground. 

You need to head to the Whirlpool and swim into it. At this point, you will be shot up into the air. Glide down to a location and shoot someone 10 seconds after landing. Remember to always have a weapon equipped as time is of the essence here.
