Alongside the ongoing Fortnitemares challenges, Fortnite: Battle Royale players have reached Week 5 of Season 6. As with every Thursday weekly reset, that means there’s a whole new batch of weekly challenges for you to complete. Doing these is vital if you want to unlock fresh cosmetics, as completing challenges rewards you with the Battle Stars needed to level up your Battle Pass. We’ve got a breakdown of Week 5’s challenges below—including the flaming hoops and radar signs ones—but if you want to catch up on every week so far, we’ve got a comprehensive Fortnite Season 6 challenge guide that’ll help you do that.
This week’s challenges in the free section, which is available to everyone, involve recording a speed of 27 or more on five different Radar Signs. On top that, you’ll need to jump through five flaming hoops while in a Shopping Kart or ATK. There’s also a three-part challenge that begins with doing damage using Tactical Shotguns.
The other challenges are only available to those with a paid Battle Pass. These ask players to kill two enemies from closer than 5m away, do 500 damage with SMGs, kill two enemies with a Minigun, and do 200 damage with standard pistols. Take a look at the full list of challenges below.
