‘Fortnite’ Season 5, Week 1 Challenges Guide


On closer inspection, this is the small erm, the umbrella/Minecraft axe shaped thing you'll spot on the map just west of Lazy Links (a new Season 5 location in the north).

Fortnite is bringing a mad, mad world to season 5 - and we're not talking about a certain Mad Titan rampaging about.

Here's what the area looks like when you get there. Other un-named POI have also been added to the island. You will also unlock the Battle Pass challenges, including the new Drift and Road Trip challenges, and five free tiers.

Season 5 of Fortnite: Battle Royale will feature another multi-week challenge opportunity for players to complete and unlock a secret character.

Other new features are Rifts, which pop up throughout the map.

The All Terrain Kart can fit you along with three others in your squad so that you can go traversing across the different biomes that are dotted around the Fortnite map.

The Season 5 mystery outfit still hasn't been revealed or datamined just yet and if it's anything like the skin we got in Season 4 - "The Visitor" for those who don't remember - then it's likely we won't see this until Week 7. These will take you "for a wild ride" if you dare step in, so maybe they'll act as some kind of teleportation portal. The golf cart can hold up to four players, has drifting speed boosts and has a roof that players can use as a bounce pad. Check out the full list of new updates here. What's more, you no longer have to complete all challenges within a single season; progressive challenges can be finished at your own pace. Heavy shotguns have been given a 10 pellet magazine, instead of 5, and the ability to double pump has been reduced with the introduction of a shot delay. You'll also be able to see how numerous pellets from a shot hit the target, which will be displayed by marks within the reticle, allowing you to see at a glance how effective your shot was. There will now be a delay when players switch from firing one shotgun to another.
