New challenges are unlocked every week on Thursdays in Fortnite Battle Royale and they consist of three challenges for Free Pass players and four for Battle Pass players. When Battle Pass players complete all seven challenges for the week, they will complete one of the Road Trip challenges and will unlock a loading screen. These loading screens contain a clue in which players will be able to find a hidden Battle Star on the Fortnite map. These Battle Stars are only visible to players that have unlocked the relevant loading screens. The challenges that should be releasing for Season 5, Week 5 have been leaked by Fortnite Tracker and can be seen below:
Free Pass Challenges
- Search chests in Junk Junction (7)
- Use Rift Portals (3)
- Eliminate opponents in a single match (HARD) (3)
Battle Pass Challenges
- Deal damage to players with a Clinger, Stink Bomb, or Grenade (300)
- Hit a golf ball from tee to green on different holes (5)
- Follow the treasure map found in Snobby Shores (HARD) (1)
- Eliminate opponents in Shifty Shafts (HARD) (3)
The free pass challenges are pretty self explanatory and we will be releasing a map to show the possible spawns for treasures chests in Junk Junction on Thursday and we already have a map for the known locations of the Rift Portals.
Dealing damage to opponents means that you do not have to eliminate them entirely to receive point, you simply have to inflict some damage on your opponents.
In this season, we were introduced to a new feature in Fortnite, which was having toys that are interactable by players. These toys are unlocked at different tiers in the Battle Pass and it looks like this week incorporates the golf ball, which is unlocked at tier 27. We will be releasing a map with all golf courses shortly after the challenges go live on Thursday to help you complete this challenge.
‘Follow the treasure map..’ challenges are very common and are regularly seen in the weekly Fortnite challenges. We will be releasing the location of the Battle Star on the Fortnite map, along with a video to show you the exact location when challenges go live on Thursday.
It looks like Junk Junction and Shifty Shafts will the most populated POIs this week as there will be many players trying to complete the chest challenge in Junk Junction and the eliminating opponents in Shift Shafts challenges.
We will be releasing tips and a map of locations where necessary to help you complete all the challenges for Season 5, Week 5 as the location of the hidden Battle Star found in the Road Trip loading screen #5.
