Deal damage with Scoped Weapons to opponents (200)

Pretty easy one and you've got a few weapon options available to you. Scoped Assault Rifle or Thermal Rifle are good options, and you can even use the Scoped Revolver if you haven't tried it out yet!

Search chests at Paradise Palms or Shifty Shafts (7)

Not much to this one, I'm guessing Shifty Shafts might see a bit less traffic, but Paradise Palms is a pretty big spot so you could head there as well.

Complete a lap of the Race Track in Happy Hamlet (1)

Just north west of Happy Hamlet is a race track that will have a bunch of driftboards available to you. Head here and hop on a driftboard, start a lap (it will start while you are standing there), and then go around the track once to complete the challenge!

Here's video of someone completing a lap:

Get 15 bounces in a single throw with the Bouncy Ball toy (25)

The Bouncy Ball toy unlocks at tier 26, so make sure you have your battle pass leveled up to there. Go into a room or enclosed area where you can throw the ball and it will bounce and ricochet off the walls. You can even just wall up and create a small area to do this. It should bounce around and you'll likely pretty easily get 15 bounces.

Stage 1 of 3 - Gain shields from Mushrooms (50)

You'll first be gaining shields from Mushrooms, you can find these in the eastern forest near Lonely Lodge, in Dusty Divot, or the forest west of Pleasant Park. The second part of this will have you gaining shields from Small Shield Potions which is easy enough, and the third stage is for the half potions which again is pretty easy.

Use a Volcano Vent, a zipline, and a vehicle in the same match (3)

Head to the north east side of the map (north west of Sunny Steps), there's a bunch of ziplines and volcano vents in this area. Once you've hit the vent and zipline, you can head over to the expedition area and grab a vehicle. Ballers and Driftboards spawn over here.

Eliminate opponents at Pirate Camps (3)

You just need to head to one of the seven Pirate Camps and get some eliminations. Head to one that is directly over the flight path so you get some fights. LTMs are also great for this sort of thing. Here's a map with the Pirate Camp locations:

Hidden Item

Once you complete all of the week 5 challenges you get this sweet looking Ember skin loading screen. Just over that nice looking lava waterfall is the battlestar.

Head to the location below marked on the map to pick it up!

If you're struggling finding the battle star, here's a video to the location:
