Fortnite Season 5 is here with new improvements, bug fixes, double pump fixes (finally), a new area, and more! There are all new challenges that allow for players to get more emojis, skins, pickaxes, XP, and V-Bucks. Things are a little different this season in regards to the challenges. Epic games has split up the challenges which allows players who don’t have a Battle Pass to get some things done each week. Those who did purchase a Battle Pass will still see the same challenges with some bonuses for having the Pass.
Diving right into the challenges. There are still seven of them, but as mentioned above, they’ve been split into two groups each with their own “hard” challenge. Those who do not have the Battle Pass will have to deal 500 damage to opponents with SMGs. Nothing too difficult. The second challenge is to search one Llama Supply. The third challenge is to get three eliminations with clingers, stink bombs, or grenades. This one might be the most problematic for players since it’s not always easy to get these types of eliminations.
Those players with the Battle Pass will still get the three challenges mentioned plus these next four. In the first challenge you will need to search seven chests in Snobby Shores. In the second challenge you will need to find seven floating Lightning Bolts. In the third challenge, you will need to Follow the Treasure Map in Risky Reels. Finally, in the fourth challenge. You will need to eliminate three opponents in Retail Row.
