Fortnite Season 5 Week 5 Epic Challenges
For the Epic challenges this week we have two sets of challenges. You can complete whichever one you want first but cannot complete all challenges in whatever order you please.
These challenges will stay with you all season, until completed.
The first set of Epic challenges we’re given this week are quite simple, especially compared to the second set.
Stage 1: Deal damage within 10 seconds of resurfacing from sand – 1000 damage
Stage 2: Deal damage while crouching – 500 damage
Stage 3: Search chests or ammo boxes – 15 total of either
Luckily, Sand Tunneling has been getting disabled on and off all season and it is currently disabled so the XP from the challenges has been given to players without needing to complete the task.
Now these challenges are a little more tedious than the first set but nothing too complicated. Very old school Fortnite scavenger-like challenges. Personally, I loved these challenges as they occasionally offered some fort of lore into Fortnite.
Stage 1: Find the buried coin in Retail Row – 1 action
Stage 2: Dig up Gnomes from Pleasant Park and Fort Crumpet – 4 Gnomes
Stage 3: Collect Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges – 4 Gnomes
Stage 4: Bury Gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row – 2 Gnomes
The buried coin, like most of the challenges in this set, is a pile of dirt on the ground that you must interact with.
You can find the pile of dirt with the coin at the bottom leftmost house in the yard.
Dig Up Gnomes From Pleasant Park and Fort Crumpet
When it comes to digging up Gnomes, as with the rest of the challenges below, you’ll need to visit a few different locations. Some you will need to visit a few times throughout.
The first Gnome at Pleasant Park is located in the northern center of the named location, inside of a yard.
The second Gnome at Pleasant Park is more towards the middle of the named locations near the gazebo on the opposite side of the soccer field.
The first Gnome in Fort Crumpet can be found in the top middle of this landmark inside the walls of the landmark itself.
The second, and final, Gnome to be dug up at Fort Crumpet can be found in the bottom leftmost corner of the landmark.
Collect Gnomes at Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges
For this stage of the challenge, you will need to collect Gnomes, not dig them up, from one more location added to the mix: Holly Hedges.
The first Gnome to be collected at Holly Hedges can be found top of the location near the Christmas Tree.
The second Gnome to be collected at Holly Hedges can be found in the outdoor area of the garden store surrounded by the plants shown below.
The first Gnome to be collected at Fort Crumpet is located along the inner wall, near the inside courtyard.
The second Gnome to be collected at Fort Crumpet, and overall final to collect, is located in the center tower on the bottom floor underneath the stairs.
Bury Gnomes at Pleasant Park or Retail Row
For this part of the challenge you only need to bury 2 Gnomes and this can be completed at one location.
Personally, I completed this challenge entirely at Pleasant Park so that is where I’ll be giving you the information for to complete this challenge.
The first Gnome at Pleasant Park is in the front yard next to a tree, in the house at the end of the middle road.
The second Gnome to be buried at Pleasant Park is located between the soccer field and the gazebo.
With all of the challenges in the set above, if you’re at a certain angle you’ll see the piles of dirt glowing blue. If you see that blue glow at any of these locations, you should have no problem finding exactly what you’re looking for.
Just be sure to also try to have a weapon so you can also survive as all of these locations will be a little more crowded than usual this week.
