With Season 5 of Fortnite finally here, take a look at the new Battle Pass, full of new skins, cosmetic items, and more.

Season 5 of Fortnite Chapter 2 is here and there’s a lot to unpack. Epic Game has given us a look at the Season 5 Battle Pass and the exclusive skins, weapons, banners emotes, and everything else it entails.

Fornite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 has finally come to a close. With the massive battle against Galactus now concluded, it’s time for the game to move on to Season 5, which means there’s a new Battle Pass for us to dig into.

We now know that Season 5 will be Star Wars themed, and the Battle Pass displays this with The Mandalorian standing front and center. There are new skins, emotes, weapons and other fun additions to look forward to.

We’ll go over everything that’s included in Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass.

How to progress through the Battle Pass

Just like with the previous seasons, you can get through the Battle Pass in one of two main ways. The first is to play Fortnite regularly and grind some serious XP. This is the most obvious option as it rewards you for being good at the game, as you get a nice amount of experience for each match you excel at.

If you want to speed this process up a bit then you can take a crack the weekly challenges. These will give you more XP than you would normally earn in a match, and you can keep up with these activities through our weekly challenge guides.

Playing the game is the cheapest option, but if you’re willing to spend some V-Bucks then you can get the Battle Pass instantly by purchasing it. The base price is 950 V-Bucks, which amounts to of $10. You can also spring for the 2,800 V-Buck bundle that will get you through 25 tiers for $25.

What’s in the Fortnite Season 5 Battle Pass?

We got a good look at what Season 5 has to offer thanks to some early leaks. The Mandalorian and ‘The Child’ have headlined the Battle Pass, and these characters will become available at the very start.

The Disney+ series has received mass acclaim from Star Wars fans, and now you’ll have the opportunity to take on the role of this bounty hunter. The Child will tag along as you walk through the large map and take on anyone foolish enough to get in your way.

The remaining Battle Pass skins are the other six hunters Jonesy called in to help stabilize the Zero Point, all coming with their own unique look, including an anime-style character unlike anything we’ve seen before.

Mando is the very first unlock and as you progress through the tiers, you will get many more skins, emotes, banners and other cosmetics.

One of the Fortnite Season 2, Week 8 Quests tasks you with calling in an Air Strike on a tank, but you’ll need to where to find one first and we’ll go over everything that you need to know.

You can complete weekly Quests in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 that grant you the opportunity to earn some bonus XP to help you progress through the Battle Pass and unlock cosmetic items.

A new set of challenges is available in Week 8, and one of them requires you to call in an Air Strike to destroy a tank. This guide will cover how you can find an Air Strike and use it to complete this Quest.

How to find an Air Strike in Fortnite

You can pick up an Air Strike as floor loot, or from Chests and Supply Drops around the island. However, it’s a Legendary item, so it may take a while before you’re actually able to find one in Fortnite.

You’ll just have to keep an eye out and hope that the Air Strike is nearby. We recommend visiting some of the best Fortnite landing spots on the map that are rich with high-tier loot to increase your chances of finding this item.

Tanks in Fortnite

How to call in an Air Strike on a tank in Fortnite

After you have acquired an Air Strike, you can find Fortnite tank locations in areas controlled by the Imagined Order. You should try heading over to Command Cavern as that location has two tanks close by.

Here’s how you can call in an Air Strike on a tank:

  1. Head to a tank location on the Fortnite map
  2. Equip the Air Strike
  3. Aim at the tank
  4. Press fire

The Air Strike launches 20 missiles and takes place for a duration of eight seconds. The good news is that these tanks don’t need to have a driver in them, so you can just blow up an empty one without having to battle it.

Once you’ve successfully called in an Air Strike on a tank, this weekly challenge will be marked as complete and you’ll be rewarded with 20,000 XP for your efforts. That covers everything you need to know about completing this Quest.
