FORTNITE Season 5, week two is here, and it’s brought a new set of challenges.
These are now split into two levels for Battle Pass holders and everyone else.
You still need to complete four of the seven to get your 5,000XP bonus, and there is a new Road Trip meta challenge that requires you to complete all seven challenges in seven different weeks.
To start with, grab an assault rifle and fill someone with holes–do that a few times and you’ll have your first five stars and be on your way to that mystery epic skin.
In between spraying lead at everyone around you, look for ammo boxes — because you need to loot seven in a single match to secure the next five stars.
The final free challenge requires you to secure three eliminations in Paradise Palms.
This week you’ll also be hunting for treasure between an oasis, rock archway and dinosaurs, scoring baskets in five different hoops, and looting chests in Loot Lake.
Basketball courts are scattered across the map, and are marked on our handy cheatsheet map above.
The easiest ones are found in Junk Junction, Greasy Grove, Tilted Towers, Retail Row and Paradise Palms — but try the one between Retail Row and Lonely Lodge if Paradise Palms is too much of a mess thanks to everyone looking for eliminations.
To search between an oasis, rock archway, and dinosaurs, you need to head to the top of one of the buttes in the centre of map square H9, specifically the large one north of the road and west of the river.
You’ll find the star on a dirt patch next to the mobile home – and we’d recommend skydiving straight there.
You’ve got all season to get them done, but remember the elimination challenges can get harder in some areas as the season goes on and less popular areas become less populated as more players complete the challenge and leave the area never to return.

When did Season 5 start?
The downtime officially started at 9 a.m. UK time lasted until about 11 a.m.
What’s changing in Season 5?
Yes! And it’s bringing a hatful of changes.
There’s a new Battle Pass and whole new set of rewards, map changes, and a whole lot more besides.
It will include vehicles, with a new All Terrain Kart, which holds up to four people and has a bounce pad on the roof.
There is a new desert area type, with TWO new areas on the map – Lazy Links and Paradise Palms.
The desert has “unique ambient audio”, while other areas will be getting their own versions “in future updates”, according to Epic Games.
Competitive play with a HUGE prize pool is also on the way, but this is separate from this patch.
