Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 Week 5 Challenges

This week’s (seasonal) quests offer opportunities for 20,000 XP each, and with seven challenges, that means completing each week’s challenge will net players 140,000 XP.

  • Damage an opponent within 10 seconds of mantling (0/1)
  • Damage enemy vehicles with the Heavy Sniper (0/600)
  • Fall 10 or more stories without taking damage (0/1)
  • Headshot IO forces with a sniper at Command Cavern or battle location (0/3)
  • Earn shield from small shield potions in one match (0/75)
  • Heal the Forces of Seven with Med Mist at a battle location (0/1)
  • Hit an opponent twice with the Ranger Shotgun, taking no damage (0/1)

This week’s battle location is over at Coney Crossroads, so find yourself a sniper rifle (a real sniper rifle, not the Striker Burst rifle) and head to the central part of the map or Command Cavern and start looking for IO forces to eliminate with any sniper rifle. To take care of another quest, try bringing a heavy sniper and watch out for enemy vehicles while you’re there. If you really want to do three at once, find Med Mist and start pulverizing the forces of the Seven. Falling 10 stories or more should be fairly easy with a Jetpack (available on one of the many IO airships). Jump from something high up, like the airship you get the Jetpack on. Just make sure to use it before you hit the ground.

To clear the other challenges, make sure to always recharge your shields with small shield potions when you’re under 50 in order to complete this shield challenge. Using any shotgun (like the Ranger shotgun) should make it fairly easy to get close to another player and use the spread to at least deal some damage to them.

This week’s challenges involve a bit of luck to complete, like all challenges, due to the random nature of loot drops in Fortnite. However, they are fairly easy to maintain, especially if you end up finding the right loot quickly.
