Epic Games has finally removed one of its most controversial additions to Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2, the time-limited weekly quests.
When Chapter 4 Season 1 began, many players noticed that weekly quests now had a 7-day timer. The quests would disappear if the players did not complete them in time.
It was a wildly controversial change that many players felt was unnecessary. Fortnite already had plenty of time-limited quests, and the weekly quests were great for those hoping to catch up on Battle Pass rewards.
Epic Games has finally updated this change and removed the time-limited weekly quests.
Are Fortnite Weekly Quests Time-Limited?
Following the January 31 Fortnite V23.30 update, weekly quests no longer expire after one week. Players can complete the weekly quests anytime until Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 ends.
This change came alongside the new Son Goku and Piccolo additions to Fortnite. Expired weekly quests will most likely not be added again. This update only affects the current weekly quests and future ones.
Before Chapter 4 Season 1, weekly quests didn’t have a time limit, and players could complete them at any point during the season. The start of Chapter 4 Season 1 was the first time in Fortnite history that weekly quests had a time limit.
It was a change that many players of the community disagreed with. Weekly quests are some of the best ways to quickly level up your Fortnite Battle Pass.
But having them limited to a 7-day time frame made them less desirable and even prevented players with less time to play from completing them.
Thankfully, Epic Games listened to the community; this change will remain in effect for the remainder of the season.
They have yet to confirm if the change will revert to time-limited with Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. Although, it wouldn’t make much sense to revert a change only to bring it back the next season.
Some players noted that the change did benefit limited-time items in the weekly quests. Since some items and equipment are only added for a short time, it made sense to limit the quests.
Although, Epic Games could also create a separate category for these quests that do not affect the current weekly quest system.
