The Season 9 of Fortnite has already been going on for a month now as we head into Week 4. The challenges for this week, however, did not come as a part of a major patch and we’re still running on version 9.10 from last week. If you’re reading this, you probably know what the deal is with these weekly challenges. However, if for some reason, you don’t, here’s the lowdown for you. Fortnite has different seasons for the progression of the ‘plot’ and to keep the game fresh. Every new season starts with some sort of big world event that changes the layout of the map and adds new things to the game. Each season lasts for about a little over 2 months. Now, during these 2 months, the game has a bunch of challenges introduced every week to keep the players engaged.
The challenges come in bundles and are sorted by the week of the season they were dropped in. This is the Week 4 of the challenges for Season 9. Each week usually has two sets of challenges. The first one is called Free challenges and as the name suggests, it is for the players who have not spent money on the game. These challenges are available to everyone and anyone who plays Fortnite can complete them. The second set, however, is called Premium and these challenges can only be completed by players who have bought the Premium Battle Pass for the game. Premium Battle Pass players get special skins and other items. Anyway, if you finish a challenge, you earn some Battle Stars. These Battle Stars are then used to level up your Battle Pass which in turn then unlocks rewards like new skins and outfits etc.

As evident from the list above, the challenges for Week 4 are rather simple. Most of them involve the player having to deal some damage, visit locations or get some eliminations using different weapons. The premium challenges for this week are extremely simple and do not require any guidance. Anyone who knows how to play Fortnite can finish those and get the Battle Stars easily. However, in the free challenges, there is one which can be rather tricky if you’re not very much familiar with the map of the game. Fear not though as we have got everything covered down below.
Dumpling Head, Holographic Tomato Head, and Durr Burger Head Location
The only tricky challenge from Week 4 requires the players to visit three landmarks and dance near them. These are a Dumpling Head, a holographic Tomato Head and a Durr Burger Head. All you need to do in this challenge is to go there and whip out some cool moves. However, finding these landmarks around the map is the trickier part. There is also a risk of running into someone trying to kill you so if you know exactly where the landmark is beforehand rather than wandering around causelessly, it can save you a lot of time. Let’s look at where each of the three heads is located.
1. Holographic Tomato Head Location
The first head you need to visit and dance at is the Holographic Tomato Head. This is the easiest one to spot as it is a gigantic tomato with a face on it. You can find this at the Mega Mall. If you don’t know where that is, it is where Retail Row was before the Season 9 event. You can also spot it on the map and drop down there. Once you drop down to Mega Mall, you’d be able to easily spot it. Just go near the Tomato Head and dance to finish this part of the challenge.
2. Holographic Durr Burger Head Location
The second head that you need to visit and dance at in order to progress through the challenge is the Holographic Durr Burger Head. This is located at another one of the newly added areas, Neo Tilted. Neo Tilted is basically the amped up futuristic version of Tilted Towers and you can spot it on the map too. Don’t drop directly on it though as the head is higher up and will require you to build up to it so stock up on materials before you get there. Once you get to the head, just dance next to it and voila, this one is done as well.
3. Holographic Dumpling Head Location
The final landmark that you need to visit and dance at is the Dumpling Head. This is also not easy to spot if you’re on the ground. The Dumpling Head is located on top of the tallest building at Lucky Landing. Just head on over to the top of the building by either landing there or making your way up there and dance next to the Dumpling Head to finish the challenge.
Fortnite has also been teasing a major world event. There is a massive eyeball under the Polar Peak which moves around as you walk near it. There are also some vibrations in the area suggesting that there is, indeed, a monster buried under there. My guess is that this will eventually turn out to be a part of the new Godzilla movie update and we could see Godzilla wreaking havoc across the map. We’re currently running patch version 9.10 on Fortnite and you can find the full patch notes here. If you have not completed the challenges from last week, you can find the guide for them right here.
