Fortnite Season 3 Week 5 Challenges Guide – Cheat Sheet

We're taking a detailed look at how-to complete all of the Chapter 2: Season 3 Week 5 Challenges in this guide! Challenges seem to have been simplified for the most part for this season. They aren't really tied to the skins, and they have pretty standard requirements that aren't going to be foreign to you if you've done any in the past. You will get quite a bit of experience for completing them all, so I would make sure to do them if you want to max out your pass.

Fortnite Season 3 Week 5 Challenges

Here's a list of all the challenges from week 5 of Season 3:

  • Search 7 chests at Sweaty Sands (7)

Week 5 Cheat Sheet

Here's a cheat sheet for this week's set of challenges, credit to SquatingDog for the image. Check out more details on all of the challenges below.

Week 5 Challenges Guide

Just like the previous season, make sure you do any henchmen, marauders, or vault based challenges in normal modes because they won't show up in Team Rumble!

Search 7 chests at Sweaty Sands (7)

You'll find Sweaty Sands in the northwest portion of the map. It's a pretty large area, so you shouldn't have too much trouble collecting the chests. This is generally easier in Team Rumble, so you don't have to fight with people. You can find the general layout for chests below (credit to

Get 3 Eliminations at Retail Row (3)

Head to Retail Row, which is on the eastern side of the map, and get a few eliminations to complete this challenge.

Use a Firefly Jar or Flare Gun at Misty Meadows (1)

There's a few locations where fireflies spawn where you can collect them for the Firefly Jars. Two are to the south and one is to the north. Grab one of those and just heave it somewhere while you're in Misty Meadows. Alternatively, you can find yourself a Flare Gun out of a chest and launch it at someone.

Land at the Yacht and finish Top 25 (1)

Glide your way over to the top of the map and into the E1 coordinate to find The Yacht that's leftover from Deadpool's visit to Fortnite. You'll just need to land there and survive into the top 25. If you don't want to do that, you can always do it in a bot lobby.

If this challenge is not working or you want to be lazy about it then you can do this cheap little method. Jump into Team Rumble, land on The Yacht, and then leave the game. You will get credit for the challenge and won't have to do much!

Catch fish at Craggy Cliffs (5)

Craggy Cliffs has been submerged, so it's no longer a named location. You can find it very close to Deadpool's yacht, and northeast of Pleasant Park. There's a building there that has a bunch of fishing rods in barrels. It's in the middle of the area, so just grab a rod there and catch some fish!

Upgrade a weapon at Salty Springs (1)

You can find yourself an upgrade spot at the northern portion of Salty Springs in the garage of the large blue roofed house. You could also find the portable upgrade item and throw it down in Salty Springs then upgrade a weapon. This is going to be easier in Team Rumble because you start with 150 of each material!

Collect Floating Rings at Steamy Stacks (1)

Looks like the floating rings are still broken! This challenge has been replaced with the ammo box challenge found below.

Epic's been having issues with these floating rings, so hopefully everyone will be able to collect them this time. There's four of them at Steamy Stacks, which is in the northeastern portion of the map. They are high in the sky, so you will need to float your way over and grab them. You can jump into each of the stacks to get a lift up into the air. This is also a good one for Team Rumble, so you can float around without getting shot!

Search Ammo Boxes at The Fortilla (7)

The Fortilla is a pretty large area that takes up a lot of the southwestern portion of the map. There's a lot of ammo boxes scattered across the location, so this one shouldn't be too difficult to find. You can find the general layout for ammo boxes below (credit to

  1. The upgrade station in Salty Springs doesn’t spawn in team rumble, you’ll have to throw a portable one down if you don’t do it in a regular match.

    1. I went there in Team Rumble and found it just fine!

  2. Am I the only one who never finds a flare gun or a firefly jar in misty?

    1. I believe you can only find firefly jars at night time

      1. Nope, they changed that in the last patch. You can find them during the day.

    2. I had a flare gun pop out of a chest for me there! You didn’t find the fireflies in the locations on the map? It does need to be night time on the map for them to spawn.

  3. what is wrong with the floating rings? again they dont work

    1. That’s a bummer, I was hoping they got them fixed. Hopefully they’ll complete the quest for people.

      1. also i’m having trouble with the yacht one, i landed there at least 10 times, survived till like 11th place and it still hasn’t worked? it worked for my friend?

        1. I had that happen to me also. To get credit for doing the challenge the text that says “Landmark The Yacht” has to pop up when you land or the challenge doesn’t register as completed which, was a very annoying for me to find out.

        2. You can apparently just go into Team Rumble, land there, and leave the game afterwards. This will give you credit for the challenge. I tried it myself and it worked.

          1. ok thanks, also, how do you report, i wanted to report the bug but it kept taking screenshots and not leting me type the bug in? how to report?
