The Fortnite Week 2 Challenges are live right now and ready to be completed, offering you a ton of Battle Stars in the process. In this Fortnite Week 2 Challenges guide, we’ll be detailing how to complete all the seven challenges in total, including the free section, as well as the section for Battle Pass holders only.
If you instead need anything else on Fortnite Battle Royale, you’ll want to head over to our Fortnite Season 5 guide. It’s here that you’ll find all the information you need on the latest skins to hit the Battle Royale game, as well as a complete guide to everything that’s new on the Fortnite map as part of Season 5.
Fortnite Week 2 Challenges
The Fortnite Challenges for Week 2 are live right now, but at a slightly later time than usual. Whereas before the challenges used to launch at 1 am PST/4 am EST, they’ll now be launching every Thursday at around 6 am PST/9 am EST. If you need a complete refresher on the challenges from the previous week (which are still available to be completed right now), head over to our Fortnite Week 1 Challenges guide.
As for the Week 2 Challenges as part of Fortnite Season 5, they’ve been leaked as usual by FortniteTracker. You can check out the full list of the challenges just below:
- Deal 1,000 damage to opponents with assault rifles.
- Search seven ammo boxes in a single match (7).
- Eliminate opponents in Paradise Palms (3).
- Score a basket on different hoops (5).
- Search seven chests in Loot Lake (7).
- Search between an oasis, rock archway, and dinosaurs.
- Get two sniper rifle eliminations (2).
The majority of the challenges outlined above aren’t that difficult to complete. There’s only a few that you’ll need directions to complete, and we’ll be expanding this guide with additional pages as soon as we’ve solved these challenges for ourselves.
Deal Damage to Opponents With Assault Rifles
This challenges is straightforward to complete. All you need to do is get your hands on an assault rifle, which are typically the easiest type of weapons to find in the game, and deal 1,000 total damage to other players in the game, across as many games as necessary.
Search Seven Ammo Boxes in a Single Match
This one could prove difficult to complete, depending on how lucky you are. Ammo box locations are randomized in Fortnite Battle Royale, but we’d recommend landing on the map as far away from the Battle Bus flight path as possible. From here, you should be far away from other players, giving you all the time you need to search multiple buildings to track down the seven necessary ammo boxes.
Eliminate Opponents in Paradise Palms
Paradise Palms was one of the brand new locations on the Fortnite map when Season 5 launched. As such, it’s nearly always a popular location to land from the Battle Bus at the beginning of a match. Keep in mind that you can take as many games as necessary to complete this challenges, so you can afford to land in Paradise Palms and die straight away.
Score a Basket on Different Hoops
This is one of the brand new challenges for the week, the likes of which we haven’t entirely seen before in Fortnite. If you want a complete walkthrough of how to track down all the courts scattered across the Fortnite map, head over to our Fornite Basketball Courts guide.
Search Seven Chests in Loot Lake
As usual in Fortnite, there’s a challenge revolving around searching a number of chests in a certain location. For the Fortnite Week 2 Challenges, you’ll have to search seven chests in total in and around Loot Lake. Head over to our complete Fortnite Loot Lake chests guide for the location of every chest in the lake.
Search Between an Oasis, a Rock Archway, and Dinosaurs
This is the treasure-orientated challenge of the week. As always it’s enigmatic in its description, but we know for a fact that the dinosaurs in question can be found near the southern edge of Paradise Palms. For the final resting location of the treasure star for this challenge, head over to our Fortnite Week 2 Treasure Challenge guide.
Get Two Sniper Rifle Eliminations
Finally, you’ll be tasked to get two sniper rifle eliminations to round out the Fortnite Week 2 Challenges. This might be a tough challenge, depending on how quick you are on the trigger, but you should always search for chests within named locations if you want to get your hands on a sniper rifle quickly.
Now that we’re done with the Fortnite Week 2 Challenges, you can head over to our Fortnite Season 5 Skins Guide, where we’ll be walking you through a complete list of skins for the new seasonal event.
Fortnite Birthday Event Challenges
While not strictly tied to the Fortnite Week 2 challenges in Season 5, Epic has released a number of Fortnite Birthday challenges while week 2 is running. The challenges run for two weeks and include needing to find the Fortnite Birthday cake locations.
