Welcome back to another week of challenges in the wonderful world of Fortnite and while the new animals in Fortnite have taken centre stage in recent weeks, this week sees the focus shift to vehicles!


Fortnite Chapter 2 season 6 is well underway now and the challenges are continuing to come every week – and this week we not only know the week 5 challenges but we know what is coming up for week 6 too!

So you are going to be making your way across the new Fortnite map and doing various things while keeping your eyes peeled for certain things to collect and your reward for doing so is a generous amount of XP!

But for the specifics of what you will need to do in Week 5 – and then what is coming up in week 6 – read on!

When are the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Week 5 Challenges being released?

As usual, Thursday is the day for the updates to Fortnite and all the new challenges that come along with it – so that means that the Week 6 challenges will go live today, 15th April. As for the exact time, 2pm on Thursday is when you can expect the weekly challenges to refresh – that’s the same time it has been for a while now. All the details are below.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 Week 5 Challenges and how to complete them

The Week 5 challenges are doing the rounds online, so we’ve listed them all below, along with some handy tips. Here’s what you’ve got to look forward to, and how you should go about completing the challenges this week:

Deal damage with SMGs (0/1000) – 24,000 XP

Straightforward this one – just pick up an SMG and get to shooting! Deal the required damage and that’s it – challenge done!

Drive from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops without leaving the vehicle – 24,000 XP

To misquote the legendary David Hasselhoff song, jump in your car! Then just drive from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops and as long as you don’t get out of your vehicle for any reason, you’ll have ticked this challenge off. Just make sure you equip off-road tires as it will help you tick off a couple more on the list too.

Get two seconds of airtime in a vehicle (0/2) – 24,000 XP

Another relatively simple one. Just pick up speed and hit a ramp and you should get this – then repeat and that’s it, done! You can also build your own ramp if you need to.

Maintain a speed of 65 or greater for four seconds in a vehicle – 24,000 XP

With your off-road tires on this should be another easy one and you can get it while doing the drive from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops.

Modify vehicles with off-road tires (0/3) – 24,000 XP

If you don’t know how to get off-road tires, then here is how you do it! Get exploring gas stations and usually, there is a large building next to them that is the garage. Inside you will find mods, including off-road tires and once you have them. jus throw them grenade style at your car – or any car – and that vehicle will now have the tires – do this to three cars for this challenge.

Search Ammo Boxes (0/5) – 24,000 XP

Keep your eyes peeled for ammo boxes and search them when you see them. Do this five times and the job is done!

Use a campfire – 24,000 XP

Another easy one, just do what the challenge says and use a campfire – simple!

Legendary Quest – collect bars (1000,2000,3000,4000,5000) – 35,000 XP to 24,500 XP

Another one that is what it sounds like, just get collecting bars and for every 1000 you get you will be rewarded with XP. You need to collect 5000 to get the lot!
