What are the Fortnite week 3 challenges? Here are the latest Fortnite challenges and how to complete them, to help you earn those sweet, sweet Battle Stars (and that nice bonus XP, too).
You know the drill by now. The third week of Fortnite season 5 is about to begin, and it brings with it the Fortnite week 3 challenges. Once again, there are three free challenges that anyone can complete, as well as four Battle Pass challenges, that you can only access if you’ve bought into Epic’s cosmetic system. There are, of course, still four normal challenges and three ‘hard’ challenges for you to get your teeth into.
So now that the Fortnite season 5 week 3 challenges release time has arrived, we’re here to help. If you’ve not completed the previous weeks’ challenges yet, never fear! We’ve got the Fortnite Season 5 week 1 challenges and Fortnite week 2 challenges, as we all info on where you can find the Fortnite Road Trip battle stars. Without further ado, here are the Fortnite Season 5 week 3 challenges.
Fortnite week 3 challenges – free
Deal Damage to opponents in a single match (500) – 5
You don’t technically have to eliminate anyone to complete this challenge, but it’ll definitely help if you do. A character on full health and shields has 200 health, so you’d ideally want to kill at least three enemies in a match to help you complete this challenge. It’ll be much easier in squads or duos though – damage dealt also counts against downed targets, who you can deal an extra 100 damage to.
Use a launchpad (1) – 5
This one’s easy – you can find launchpads in supply drops, llamas, and as floor loot. Simply place one, and launch into the sky to complete this challenge.
Follow the treasure map found in Flush Factory – 10
The Flush Factory treasure map has appeared and, as ever, X marks the spot to help you earn that brand new Battle Star.
Fortnite week 3 challenges – battle pass
Search chests in Fatal Fields (7) – 5
Fatal Fields is near the south coast, above Lucky Landing and Flush Factories. Your best bets for chest spawns are the stables, the house, and the big red barn, but remember that there are plenty more scattered about the surrounding area and outbuildings. Open seven chests to complete this challenge.
Shoot a clay pigeon in different locations (5) – 5
You might have noticed the clay pigeon shooters dotted around the map. There are five in total, and we’ve listed all the Fortnite Clay Pigeon locations to help you shoot those flying targets at your leisure.
Eliminate opponents at Haunted Hills (5) – 10
This week, your designated kill-zone is Haunted Hills. See off five adversaries with your weapon of choice to complete this challenge.
Explosive weapon eliminations (3) – 10
You can use any explosive weapon you like to complete this challenge, from clingers to the rocket launcher itself. Get three eliminations to claim your battle stars.
The challenges haven’t gone live yet, of course (they should be available from tomorrow morning). It’s worth bearing in mind that some of these challenges could be subject to change before then, but we’ll change the information in this article if that is the case.
