Fortnite Week 1 Challenges
Previously, there were seven total challenges for each week of Fortnite Battle Royale, that were exclusive for those players who owned the Battle Pass. This time however, the Season 5 Battle Pass will only grant you four exclusive challenges every week. There'll be three challenges for everyone, regardless of whether you own the Battle Pass, and there'll be four Battle Pass-exclusive challenges, so there are still seven challenges in total every week, but this time more players get to access new challenges.
Just below, you can check out the full list of Fortnite Week 1 Challenges, that Season 5 has just launched with. As you can see, we've split them up, with some for everyone, while others are only for Season 5 Battle Pass owners.
- Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (500).
- Search a Supply Llama (1).
- Clinger Stink Bomb, or Grenade eliminations (3).
- Search chests in Snobby Shores (7).
- Search floating Lightning Bolts (7).
- Follow the treasure map found in Risky Reels.
- Eliminate opponents in Retail Row (3).
At the top are the free challenges, and at the bottom are the Battle Pass challenges. To complete the task for the chests, you can head on over to our Snobby Chores chests guide, for a complete walkthrough of all the chest locations within the point on the map.
