Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 is now entering its third week. That means Epic Games has introduced another new set of challenges for players to complete on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch as well as your mobile device. In previous weeks, the challenges are split into two categories, with some being available to everyone and others are exclusive to Battle Pass owners. This week’s challenge is no different.
If you are using the free version, then your challenge involves dealing 500 damage to opponents in a single match, using a launch pad, and following the treasure map found in Flush Factor. The first two shouldn’t be too much trouble, but the third will definitely require a bit of legwork. Flush Factory can be found in the southern part of the island and it’s there where you’ll actually find the treasure map.
That said, you aren’t actually required to get the map first. You can skip this part and go to quadrant F8 of the map. This is where you’ll find a house on a hilltop. If you’re looking at the house head-on, the Star you’ll need to collect will be on the right side of the path, leading up to the house. Although gliding onto the spot from the Battle Bus is the easiest way to get to it, you can also build your way up.
If you’ve got Battle Pass, though, you’ll need to search seven chests in Fatal Fields, shoot a Clay Pigeon at five different locations, eliminate five enemies in Haunted Hills, and then get three eliminations using an explosive weapon. You’ll get 5K worth of XP for completing all of these challenges. Below we’ve got a summary of the challenges and what you’ll receive if you are able to complete them.
- Deal damage to opponents in a single match (500) — 5 Battle Stars
- Use a launch pad (1) — 5 Battle Stars
- Follow the treasure map found in Flush Factory (1) — 10 Battle Stars
- Search chests in Fatal Fields (7) — 5 Battle Stars
- Shoot a Clay Pigeon at different locations (5) — 5 Battle Stars
- Eliminate opponents in Haunted Hills (5) — 10 Battle Stars
- Explosive weapon eliminations — 10 Battle Stars
So that’s not where the challenges end. Fortnite is also celebrating its first birthday with a set of challenges that will unlock a birthday-themed emote, spray and bling. The first two challenges are relatively easy, requiring you to do a specified amount of damage and play a certain amount of matches. However, the third challenge is a little trickier. For this, you’ll need to find 10 cakes that have been scattered around the island and dance in front of them. But the news doesn’t stop there. Epic Games is also giving out new Fortnite skins to those that have been playing the game from the very beginning. If you purchased the Founder’s Pack when Fortnite’s Save the World mode originally launched, you’ll be prompted about the classic skins when you next boot up the game. These were promised to Founder’s Pack owners when the Battle Royale mode first launched, and have finally been delivered around a year later.
