Our Fortnite Week 5 Challenge guide contains a list of all the challenges available this week, as well as number of tips, tricks and strategy advice to help you complete them easily.
We’re now into Week 5 of Season 6, which means we’ve reached the halfway mark. Oh, and the point where more challenges have become available of course. Tackle them and you’ll receive a handful of Battle Stars which’ll help you level up your Battle Pass a lot faster than usual.
For this week’s challenges you’ll be tasked with the usual stuff, like dealing damage with a certain weapon, eliminating enemies with another and dealing damage with them too. However, there are a couple which certainly throw a spanner in the works.
So without further ado, let’s get into all of the challenge available this week and how to complete them all.

Those are all of the challenges available in Week 5 of Fortnite Season 6, then, but how do you complete them all? Good question, and in the rest of this article we'll go through each task one by one.
Record a speed of 27 or more on different Radar Signs
To complete this challenge you’ll need to take charge of a vehicle and race past 5 different Radar Signs at a speed of 27 or more. For maximum speed, we’d recommend the ATK or Quad Launcher as they’ve both got boost functions.
Our All Radar Signs Locations page will help you find them all!
Jump through flaming hoops with a Shopping Cart or ATK
A handful of flaming hoops have spawned across the map and you’ll need to race through them in order to tick off this challenge.
Our All Flaming Hoops locations page has you covered!
Deal damage with Tactical Shotguns to opponents
This one’s pretty simple and involves getting hold of a Tactical Shotgun (semi-auto) and dealing a total of 200 damage. Once you’ve found one, just go ahead and use it in as many fights as possible. The points will begin stacking up and you’ll complete this challenge before you know it!
Eliminate an opponent from closer than 5m away
Despite the iffy wording, this basically means - get up in someone’s face and blast them.
You’ll likely complete this challenge easily if you’re in a close quarters shotgun battle, but otherwise, focus on getting up close and personal.
Deal damage with SMGs to opponents
Again, this is pretty self explanatory - find an SMG and spray away. Any one will do, so long as you’re not attempting to spray someone down from long range. Make sure you’re in close proximity before pulling the trigger.
If you manage to stumble across a Minigun, it’s then a case of holding down the trigger until you catch someone out.
To make this challenge a little easier, we’d recommend using the Minigun once you’ve brought someone’s health down significantly enough that you’ve forced them to backpedal. Once they’re on the ropes, push forwards, bring out the Minigun and let loose.
Deal damage with standard Pistols to opponents
A similar strategy to this week’s SMG challenge is needed. Grab a pistol, use it as your primary and aim to get into fights. Eventually the damage will stack up and you’ll get this challenge done before you know it.
