Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 Challenges

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here are all of the challenges that will be released for Week 5 of Fortnite, Season 6.

New challenges are released every week in Fortnite Battle Royale on Thursdays and there are seven Epic Challenges that are released and one Legendary Challenge. The Epic Challenges can be completed at any time during this season and completing each challenge awards you with 24,000 XP.

The Legendary Challenges have five different stages, which awards players with XP for each completed stage. These challenges are only available for a limited time of one week, before being replaced with another one so if you are looking for additional XP, be sure to complete these challenges as soon as possible.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 5 Challenges

Here are the seven Epic challenges that will be released tomorrow, Thursday 15th April, at 3pm GMT:

  • Deal damage with SMGs (1,000)
  • Search ammo boxes (5)
  • Use a campfire (1)
  • Modify vehicles with off-road tires (3)
  • Drive from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops without leaving the vehicle (1)
  • Maintain a speed of 65 or greater for 4 seconds in a vehicle (1)
  • Get 2 seconds of airtime in a vehicle (2)

The challenges for this week are self-explanatory and shouldn’t be too difficult to complete. SMGs are quite easy to come by and dealing 1,000 damage shouldn’t take too long to do. You can find ammo boxes all over the map and can be easily completed in one match. You can find campfires in various different places around the map and all you need to do is simply interact with it to complete the challenge.

The last four challenges requires you to use vehicles in order to complete them. Epic recently added a feature (in the v16.20 update) which allows players to modify vehicles to add off-road tires to make them easier to manoeuvre off-road.

The Legendary challenge for this week can be seen below:

  • Collect bars (1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, 5,000)

The numbers in the brackets show how many bars you need to collect for each stage in order to complete it. Completing the first stage will award you with 35,000 XP and the rest will award you with 24,500 XP each. This challenge is quite easy as you can collect bars by eliminating players and completing tasks from NPCs.

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Here is what the Aloy Fortnite Skin and other cosmetics in the set look like for the Horizon Zero Dawn collaboration.

Epic Games have managed to secure many collaborations with different franchises, with Marvel and DC being the biggest collaborations with the universes colliding. Epic haven’t limited themselves to just partnering with companies outside of the gaming world as there have been collaborations with other games such as Rocket League and even Lara Croft, which is a Skin available for free in this seasons Battle Pass.

In the update that took place earlier today, v16.20, there were a few files added that hinted at a new collaboration with another popular game and now more files have just been decrypted and leaked by dataminers to show that this collaboration is in fact taking place. The full set for Aloy, the main character in Horizon Zero Dawn, has just been revealed, all of which you can see below.

Fortnite Aloy Skin – Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn is a action role-playing game that has been developed by Guerrilla Games and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. The plot follows Aloy, a young hunter in a world overrun by machines, who sets out to uncover her past. The player uses ranged weapons, a spear, and stealth to combat mechanical creatures and other enemy forces. A skill tree provides the player with new abilities and bonuses. The player can explore the open world to discover locations and take on side quests. It is available to play on PS4/PS5 from 2017 and more recently on Microsoft Windows in 2020.

In the Aloy set that has just been decrypted, you can see there is a Skin, Back Bling, Emote, Loading Screen, Glider, Pickaxe and Wrap, all of which you can see below:

Fortnite Aloy Set

According to leakers, there is another style you can unlock for Aloy, but this may be a PS4/PS5 exclusive. The second style is called Ice Hunter Aloy and you can see what that looks like below:

Although it has not yet been confirmed if the new style will be a PlayStation exclusive, it is more than likely that this will be the case. Reason being, Horizon Zero Dawn is only on PlayStation and has been published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. This is the same as Kratos from God of War, which also had a second style available for PlayStation players.

UPDATE:

There will be an Aloy Cup on April 14th, exclusive to PlayStation players, where you will have the chance to earn the set before release.

Here are the the locations where you can talk to all the Joneses in Fortnite for the Spire challenge.

Two weeks ago, Epic Games released the first set of The Spire challenges with the release of the v16.10 Fortnite update. There were some issues with some of the challenges which meant some players weren’t able to complete them.

Epic addressed the issue with the Spire quests with a small patch update. In today’s update, Epic have added in a number of new Fortnite the Spire quests/challenges for players to complete.

Duel Jonesy the First Fortnite

One of the challenges requires players to know all of the locations of the Joneses on the Fortnite season 6 map as the challenge requires you to “talk to the Joneses”. If you’re not sure where the locations of all the Jonesy characters are on the Fortnite chapter 2 season 6 map, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite All Jonesy Locations

In order to complete the ‘talk to Joneses’ Fortnite Spire quest, players will need to talk to a total of five Jonesy characters around the map. Some of the locations of Jonesy in Fortnite will change with different spawn locations such as Bunker Jonesy.

Bunker Jonesy can be found south-east of Catty Corner past the snowy mountains. You’ll find him outside the wooden house. He can also be found at other locations including on the very south side of the map, further north-east of Catty Corner, and north-west of Holly Hedges.

For that reason, it’s best not to go looking for him in order to complete this challenge. The other Jonesy Fortnite locations are much easier to find as he’ll always spawn there.

Here are all the other Jonesy Fortnite locations where you can find all the Joneses and complete the challenge as quickly as possible:
