Fortnite’s Close Encounters game mode ensures faster-paced close-range battles by limiting your weapon choices to just shotguns and making the safe zone shrink much quicker than it normally does.

Here are all the Close Encounters Quests in Fortnite Chapter 3:

  • Eliminate two player opponents within 30 seconds of each other in Close Encounters (0/1) – 12,000 XP
  • Get an elimination with 10 or fewer players remaining in Close Encounters (0/1) – 14,000 XP
  • Deal damage to opponents from above in Close Encounters (0/100) – 10,000 XP

There is also a Close Encounter Challenge that will grant you 18,000 XP for completing all three of these Quests. These tasks are simple enough that you can get them all done in just a few matches.

The Close Encounters Quests are pretty straightforward, as they require you to do tasks that you already attempt when playing a normal match of Fortnite, such as dealing damage to multiple opponents.

You can complete them even quicker by joining the Close Encounters game mode with a reliable teammate. The two of you can support each other as you tackle multiple tasks in a single match.
