We're now into Season 5, Week 5 of Fortnite, which means there's a new selection of challenges for players to complete on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and iOS. As with previous weeks, the newest batch are split between challenges that are available to all players, and a small selection of additional ones that are only accessible to Battle Pass owners. Completing the challenges unlocks Battle Stars, which contribute towards leveling the Battle Pass up and unlocking fresh new items to customize your character with.
This week's challenges for the free tier involve searching for seven chests in Junk Junction and eliminating three opponents in a single match. On top of that, you'll need to use three Rift Portals. Since Rift Portals appear randomly, this one is going to involve spending some time running around searching for them, so we recommend getting on with the other challenges but keeping an eye out for rifts.
For Battle Pass-exclusive challenges, you'll have to deal 300 damage with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade; hit a golf ball from tee to green on five different holes, and eliminating three opponents in Shifty Shafts. As with previous weeks, the trickiest of the bunch involves following a treasure map, which this time can be found in Snobby Shores.
As usual, you don't need to find the map to actually complete the hunt for the Battle Star, but if you want to see it, you can take a look below for an image. The Battle Star is located on the roof of the northernmost crypt inside Haunted Hills. The quickest and easiest way to get yourself up there is to build structures until you're high enough to jump on. Take a look below to also see a map of the exact location where the star can be found.
Along with getting Battle Stars, completing any four challenges will get you 5,000 XP. Take a look below for a complete list of challenges.
If you're kept up with all of the challenges in Season 5 thus far and manage to clear the latest set of objectives, you'll complete another Road Trip challenge and be rewarded with a special loading screen that points to the location of a free Battle Pass tier hidden around the island. This one can be found on top of a house surrounded by cacti, but it'll only appear if you've met the aforementioned requirements.
On August 8, developer Epic Games rolled out Fortnite update 5.20, introducing a number of new features to the game. Steady Storm became available as a limited-time mode and the double barrel shotgun was added to the game, making those that get their hands on it devastatingly powerful at close range. You can read the full Fortnite update 5.20 patch notes to see everything that was added and changed.
