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.

Tiers 1-8

Tiers 9-15

Tiers 16-22

Tiers 23-29

Tiers 30-36

Tiers 37-44

Tiers 45-53

Tiers 54-60

Tiers 61-66

Tiers 67-73

Tiers 74-79

Tiers 80-87

Tiers 88-96

Tiers 97-100

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

Where to find the black box in Fortnite’s Week 9 challenge

A Fortnite Season 5 weekly challenges requires you to find a black box at the crashed plane site. Here’s how you can get this done.

Fortnite black box location

One of Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 9 challenges requires you to find a black box at the crashed plane site. We’ve made it easier to find with the help of a useful map.

Fortnite Season 5 is set to end on March 16, and we’re now in week 9 of the update. This means that there are brand new weekly challenges for you to complete, and you have the opportunity to progress through the Battle Pass.

Week 9’s challenges are simple compared to previous weeks since you’ll mostly do tasks like dealing damage in water and shaking down IO Guards. One of these Epic Quests requires you to find a crashed plane’s black box.

Where to find the black box in Fortnite Season 5

To find the black box, you’ll have to make your way towards the location of the crashed plane, which is at the northwesternmost point of the map. It’s close to the Coral Castle POI on Fortnite Island.

It’s likely that you’ve already been to this area before since it’s usually rich in loot for you to collect. That leads to it also being filled with a high amount of player traffic, so you should be ready for a battle when you head over there.

We’ve made things a bit easier for you by marking the exact location on the map below.

The plane has been split into three parts, and you can find the black box near the middle section. Head over to the marked spot on the map, and you’ll be able to interact with it. That will result in you receiving 20,000 XP in the challenge.

At the moment, we don’t know for sure if this crashed plane will have some sort of major relevance to future events in the battle royale, but it wouldn’t be too surprising if it did. Stealthy Stronghold ended up being tied to the Predator crossover.

That wraps up this relatively simple challenge. You can earn some serious XP, and unlock brand new cosmetics by completing Epic and Legendary quests, so be sure to check out our Fortnite Season 5 Week 9 challenges guide.

Where to find Hidden Bunkers for Fortnite Week 9 challenge

Fortnite Season 5 Week 9’s challenge has players visit a hidden bunker, so here’s where to find them in Chapter 2.

Fortnite bunker door

Fortnite Season 5’s Week 9 Quests ask you to find a hidden bunker, so here are the locations for all three on the Fortnite map.

Bunkers have been a source of intrigue for Fortnite players since Chapter 1 when a mysterious bunker door arrived in Weeping Woods. No matter how the map changed, the bunker remained.

When the original map was destroyed and Fortnite moved onto a new island, these bunkers returned. Still, nobody knows what these bunkers are for, but with us only being a few weeks away from Season 6, perhaps we’ll know the answer then.

The Season 5 Week 9 challenges, which begin on January 28, ask players to visit one of these bunkers for 20,000 XP, so here are their locations.

Fortnite Hidden Bunker locations

There are three bunkers spread out across the Fortnite Chapter 2 map, and all of them difficult to find if you don’t know where to go. One is hidden underwater, one under a shack, and the last behind a bush at the very edge of the map.

To make things easy for you, we’ve put together a map showing where these bunkers are.

Fortnite bunker locations

The first bunker is in the bay off the coast directly to the south of Holly Hedges. Swim out to sea as if you’re going off the map, and dive under the water and you’ll find the hidden bunker.

The second bunker is found at the very north of the map on the island to the north-west of Craggy Cliffs. It will be found under a shack on the east side of the island. Simply break open the wall underneath the shack and you’ll have found the bunker.

The third bunker is on the cliffs to the south-east of Retail Row. Go along the cliffs to the east of Retail Row and you’ll stumble upon a large bush in-between two trees. Destroy the bush and you’ll find the bunker underneath.

The leaked Quests ask you to ‘”Find a hidden bunker???” so the first bunker may be the only one that will work for this challenge, as it pings with ‘???’ when you first visit it. So we recommend visiting this bunker first, but any of the three will likely work.
