Fortnite Season 5 Week 3 challenges are now live, which means new Epic and Legendary challenges to complete to level up your battle pass. Below, we’ll go into detail on what you need to do to complete these challenges.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 3 Epic Challenges
Fortnite Season 5 Week 3 Epic challenges this week, worth 22,000 XP each. Below, we’ll go into detail on how to complete these challenges as easily as possible.
Damage Players With Assault Rifles or SMGs
These challenges should be fairly easy to complete as the entire island is littered with different varieties and rarities of these weapons. So you should have no problem finding at least one of each throughout each match you play.
However, this is a 3 stage challenge. Below, you’ll see each step and what is required for them to be completed.
- Stage 1: 500 damage with Assault Rifles or SMGs
- Stage 2: 200 headshot damage to players with Pistols or Sniper Rifles
- Stage 3: Destroy Toilets – 3 Toilets
You can find toilets all over the map but if you really want to land and get this challenge done, you can visit the surprise return of Flush Factory.
Flush Factory is an old location from Chapter 1 that has returned due to the Zero Point event. You can find Flush Factory almost directly south of Slurpy Swamp.
Loot Chests in Craggy Cliffs, Holly Hedges or Retail Row
This is another several stage challenge as you will need to complete one challenge to unlock the next stage.
These challenges are pretty easy, even if you’re eliminated pretty early you should still be able to make some way with these challenges.
The stages and their requirements can be seen below.
- Stage 1: Loot Chests at Craggy Cliffs, Holly Hedges or Retail Row – 7 chests
- Stage 2: Eliminations with Rare weapons or greater – 3 eliminations
- Stage 3: Eliminations while in a vehicle – 1 elimination
- Stage 4: Loot Ammo Boxes at Salty Towers or Colossal Colosseum – 7 Ammo Boxes
When it comes to looting chests in the named locations listed, Craggy Cliffs, Holly Hedges and Retail Row, you should be able to complete this in 3 games or less especially between the 3 locations.
As for eliminations with Rare weapons or greater, as long as you last until at least mid-game you should be able to acquire at least one Rare weapon by that point but 3 eliminations is all on you.
Next part of the challenge, elimination while in a vehicle, should be no problem to complete as you should be somewhat into your legendary challenges this week which is the same challenge.
Loot Ammo Boxes in Salty Towers or Colossal Colosseum
This challenge may take you some time as both of these are some of the newest Named Locations this season so a lot of players tend to land at them straight from the Battle Bus.
Salty Towers is a combination of Tilted Towers and Salty Springs. Colossal Colosseum on the other hand is a brand new location, and a very interesting one at that.
Honestly, you may have a better bet landing at Colossal Colosseum if landing directly at these locations is your preference for completing this challenge. The two locations are pretty close to each other so you can always hit both locations in one game.
Total you will need to loot 7 Ammo Boxes to complete this challenge.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 3 Legendary Challenges
For Fortnite Season 5 Week 3 challenges you’re going to need to get eliminations while in a vehicle. This can be completed by hitting players with a vehicle or shooting them from inside the vehicle.
As with the previous Legendary challenges, these are time limited and are worth 55,000 XP each but they are also several stages. Below we’ll go into detail on how many eliminations you’ll need per stage.
- Stage 1: Eliminate players while in a vehicle – 3 eliminations
- Stage 2: Eliminate players while in a vehicle – 6 eliminations
- Stage 3: Eliminate players while in a vehicle – 9 eliminations
- Stage 4: Eliminate players while in a vehicle – 12 eliminations
- Stage 5: Eliminate players while in a vehicle – 15 eliminations
That’ll be it for Fortnite Season 5 Week 3 challenges, hopefully with this guide you’ll be able to get some more awesome rewards from your battle pass.
