Every competitive season in Fortnite has unique rewards players can unlock by completing Ranked Urgent Quests. By going to the Quests tab, you can track how many Urgent Quests you’ve finished and check how many more you need to complete to earn the next reward.

Once you’ve jumped from the Battle Bus during a Ranked match, you’ll receive an Urgent Quest. Unlike traditional Fortnite Quests, you can only complete these during the match you receive them.

Urgent Quests are typically simple, like dealing damage with a specific weapon type or landing headshots.
In our experience playing Ranked, we were able to easily complete these quests before being completely obliterated by sweats in the top 25.

In Season Zero of Fortnite Ranked, you’ll need to complete a total of fifty Ranked Urgent Quests to unlock every reward. Players will earn a free Cosmetic with every five quests completed. Once you’ve unlocked all Ranked rewards, you’ll also obtain the Burn Bright Emote, which changes color with your current rank.

All Season Zero Ranked rewards include:

  • Get in the Ring Loading Screen (5 Quests completed)
  • Trophy Banner Icon (10 Quests completed)
  • GG Gnarly Emoticon (15 Quests completed)
  • Purrpendicular Spray (20 Quests completed)
  • Skull Heart Banner Icon (25 Quests completed)
  • GG Gleam Emoticon (30 Quests completed)
  • Shark Surfers Spray (35 Quests completed)
  • Rocket Banner Icon (40 Quests completed)
  • Knuckles Up Emoticon (45 Quests completed)
  • Quad Squad Spray (50 Quests completed)
  • Burn Bright Emote (All Ranked rewards redeemed)

Don’t worry if your Battle Royale skills are a little rusty, as players of any rank can every reward. It’s also completely free for all players; no Battle Pass required! Though players were a little wary of Arena’s removal, it’s safe to say that Ranked is looking like a fantastic addition to Fortnite’s competitive scene.
