Fortnite Season 2 only has a few weeks left, which means that time is running out for Overtime Challenges to hit the game. We’ve seen some sort of Overtime Challenges for every recent season, so it would be surprising if Epic held out on us, here.
Reddit user u/TSR_Gamer posted their thoughts on Overtime Challenges to the r/FortniteBR subreddit, giving five unique ideas for what the Season 2 Overtime Challenges will be. We’re ranking them, here, from least to most likely. With any luck, we won’t be getting the number-five option.
5. No Overtime Challenges
While disappointing, it’s possible that we don’t get any Overtime Challenges for Fortnite Season 2. Epic may have thought that the gold variants were enough, along with the Location Domination challenges for extra XP.
This is, in our opinion, not likely. We’ve been able to unlock additional skin variants since Season X, and Epic have always given us Overtime Challenges on top of them. As the saying goes, though: expect the best. Prepare for the worst.
4. Deadpool variants
Deadpool was a central theme of Season 2, which means his reach could extend through the Overtime Challenges. Imagine a Deadpool-themed Agent Peely or Midas. That would be pretty great.
As awesome as this may be, it seems to be one of the least likely scenarios on this list. Other than a red coloring, it’s unclear how Epic would make all of these skins Deadpool-themed. It’s a cool idea, but probably not a practical one.
3. Opposing factions
In our opinion, allowing us to unlock the opposing skin variants would most boring option for Overtime Challenges. There was some hubbub about choosing sides at the beginning of the season, but most of that has passed. A lot of players seem to be happy with their selection, and the Team Shadow vs. Team Ghost has injected a bit of entertainment into unlocking different skin variants.
There are a few things that we’d like to have in our locker. For instance, both of the TNTina glider variants look awesome, as does Meowscle’s different color options. Still, it seems too bland to offer opposing variants as a reward for Overtime Challenges.
2. FNCS poster art
The FNCS Invitational showed Agent Peely with a white and gold outfit, something we haven’t seen with any of the in-game skins. Could this be hinting at the Overtime Challenge variants?
It’s possible, although the first FNCS of Season 2 did not display the Battle Pass skins with this outfit. Another option is that Agent Peely receives this variant with other skins getting different colorings.
1. Platinum/Bronze/Silver/Diamond variants
This is an original and interesting concept that fits the general theme of Fortnite Season 2. Sure, it isn’t gold, but using other elements would be an awesome way to set the Overtime Challenges apart from the rest of the Battle Pass.
Imagine receiving a bronze Meowscles, a silver Agent Peely, and a diamond Midas. That would satisfy a lot of Fortnite players. Also, this diamond Midas from FireMonkey is simple, yet amazing. Who wouldn’t want this in their locker?
Of course, there’s a strong chance that the Overtime Challenges give us rewards that we didn’t mention, here. They could give us something like the Beach Meowscles that was seen in the Season 3 promotional art. A summer-themed Overtime would fit the real-world season, after all (at least, above the equator).
With an expected patch this week, we’ll likely see the Overtime Challenges leaked, once and for all. Let’s see if we and u/TSR_Gamer are right on some of these, or if it’s something that’s completely unexpected.
