Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 5 – Week 5 Challenges Guide

Must find all the Gnomes!

Start of the new year, and it's Week 5! Many Epic quests for this week involve finding Gnomes! And finding a buried blue coin... Is this a hint that that XP coins may be coming back?

Fortnite Season 5: Week 5 Challenges Guide

Nothing has changed with the format for Week 5; the Epic quests are still here! Each week players are given Seven Epic quests and one Legendary Quest they have to complete. The seven Epic quests are not time-limited; however, the Legendary quest is, always gun for that first!

One of the eight quests will always be a Legendary quest, and you'll earn a whopping 55,000 XP for finishing the first stage, then 22,000 XP for completing the next four. Luckily, this Legendary quest can be done with multiple players involved, of course, depending on what the quest is.

  • Quest Rarity (from highest to lowest)
    • Legendary - 55,000 XP for the first stage
        •      22,000 XP for the remaining four.
    • Epic- 20,000XP

Just for the heads up, you cannot do any Epic quests unless they show up for you on your challenge list. Complete the quests you have first, and then new challenges will replace those.

Week 5

The Tunneling Sand quest is currently disabled, so it counts as an automatic completion!

Remember to finish off your Legendary quest, as that is the only one that is time-limited! The full list of challenges - we have information on - is available here, at our Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 5 Guide – Challenges & Information article!

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
