Fortnite Week 5 challenges: how to complete each challenge for extra stars and XP

By Matt Martin, Friday, 23 March 2018 16:29 GMT

Week 5 Challenges are live for Fortnite Battle Royale, giving you the chance to earn extra Battle Stars and XP.

Why would you want to do that? Because earning extra XP and Battle Stars pushes you up Season 3 tiers, unlocking new outfits, emotes and more.

Complete 4 of the 7 challenges below and you’ll earn a whopping 4,000 XP.

Fortnite Week 5 Challenges

  • Use the Bush – 5 Stars
  • Simply equip the bush camouflage when you find it and you’ve bagged this challenge. The bush can be found randomly in Treasure Chests.

  • Search Chests in Moisty Mire – 5 Stars
  • You’ll need to find 7 chests in Moisty Mire to earn this challenge. Be sure to look in the roots of trees and even chop a few down if you hear the magic tinkling sound.

  • Deal damage with pickaxe to opponents – 5 Stars
  • This is awkward rather than hard. You’ll need to dish out 200 points of damage with your pickaxe and you need to do it immediately after landing before enemies can grab a weapon, otherwise you’re not going to win the fight.

  • Visit different Gas Stations in a single match – 5 Stars
  • You need to visit 3 Gas Stations in one match to earn this. There are plenty on the island, and we have a handy map to all Gas Station locations here.

  • Follow the treasure map found in Anarchy Acres (Hard) – 10 Stars
  • Here’s the locations of the treasure map and the Battle Star. You’ll find it just West of Junk Junction. This isn’t actually a hard challenge once you know where it is.

  • Pistol Eliminations (Hard) – 10 Stars
  • Kill three enemies with a pistol. Try the hand cannon, it packs the most bang for the buck.

  • Eliminate opponents in Tilted Towers (Hard) – 10 Stars
  • Kill three enemies in Tilted Towers. This shoudn’t be too hard for Fortnite vets as Tilted Towers is full of loot and is a notorious killzone anyway.

This week also marks the release of a new weapon in Fortnite, the heavy shotgun. So there’s an added incentive to go hunting for kills if you find it in a treasure chest.

Don’t forget that all previous week’s challenges remain open, so you can still earn extra XP and Battle Stars by completing those.

In case you’re wondering, all of these challenges are exactly the same in the mobile version of Fortnite and cross-save is supported. That’s assuming you’ve signed up for Fortnite on mobile.
