A brand new Fortnite season of challenges is ready and raring to go! Here’s a full list of the Fortnite Season 5 Week 1 challenges.

Fortnite challenges work a bit differently now we’ve entered Season 5. In the v5.0 Patch Notes that released alongside the Season 5 update, Epic Games said that everything will now be split into two sections: Free and Battle Pass.

The Free section will be made up of three challenges, while Battle Pass players will get all seven. As usual, the cut off for the weekly XP reward will still be four challenges completed – which means that only Battle Pass players will be able to get the extra XP.

The other change coming to Fortnite challenges is that Progressive Challenges – like the Carbide challenges from Season 4 – will no longer be tied to your Season Level, but to an amount of XP. They will also be available across multiple seasons, so now you don’t have to rush so much to grind for all the extras.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 1 Challenges:

Free Challenges:

  • Deal 500 damage with SMGs to opponents
  • Search a Supply Llama
  • Get Three Clinger, Stink Bomb or Grenade Eliminations (HARD)

Battle Pass Challenges:

  • Search Chests in Snobby Shores
  • Search Floating Lightning Bolts
  • Follow the Treasure Map found in Risky Reels
  • Eliminate Opponents in Retail Row

There’s so much new to enjoy with Fortnite Season 5, including new skins, and new places to explore like Lazy Links, Paradise Palms and the Desert Biome. Check out the full v5.0 Patch Notes for everything that’s changed.
