The Fortnite Season 5 Week 5 Challenges are here. You have a whole new set of tasks to attempt while making your way to the next tier of the Battle Pass, and here’s how you can complete them all.
Epic Games have released brand new weekly challenges for you to tackle in Fortnite Season 5. Completing these is a great way to earn some quick XP and unlock rare skins as you progress through the Battle Pass tiers.
Week 5’s challenges cover familiar ground such as dealing damage to enemies and looting chests, while also mixing things up a little bit. These aren’t the most difficult tasks and you can get them done in a few games.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 5 Challenges
There are a total of eight challenges available during this week. Many of these are simple enough and can be completed soon after landing. A few others will require more effort but you can still get them done, and net some huge XP.
Here are all the Fortnite Season 5 Week 5 challenges:
- Find the buried Blue Coin in Retail Row (1)
- Dig up Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Pleasant Park (1)
- Search chests or ammo crates (15)
- Collect Gnomes from Fort Crumpet and Holly Hedges (1)
- Bury Gnomes in Pleasant Park or Retail Row (2)
- Deal damage within 10 seconds of resurfacing from sand (1,000)
- Deal damage while crouched (500)
- Eliminate IO Guards (10/20/30/40/50)
You’ll notice that many of these are fairly standard, such as opening chests, dealing damage while crouched, and collecting items. If you’ve done weekly challenges before, then these shouldn’t be too difficult to complete.
One of the more challenging tasks requires you to deal 1,000 damage within 10 seconds of you resurfacing from some sand. You’ll have to hope that a ton of enemies are close by while you hide in the sand. Luckily, you have the entire week to complete this challenge.
If you want to earn a huge amount of XP then you should definitely go for the Legendary Quest. This challenge requires you to eliminate IO Guards around the map. You can earn a total of 55,000XP for killing 50 of these enemies, so it’s well worth the effort.
While last week’s challenges focused on tomatoes, the theme for Week 5 revolves around Gnomes. A few tasks involve you digging up, collecting, and burying the little guys from different locations across the map. We’ll cover these tasks in separate guides.
The key to completing these challenges quickly is to drop into the right locations. We recommend starting off your session at Retail Row and then rotating to the next closest objective from there. Doing this will get you a Blue Coin and free XP.
With Operation Snowdown well underway, you can greatly benefit from completing Season 5’s weekly challenges. Get out there and get yourself some XP!

How to get the Terminator skin set in Fortnite
Epic Games have brought brand new Terminator-themed skins to Fortnite Season 5, and here’s how you can get them.
As Fortnite Season 5 comes closer to its end, new crossovers are being added to the Battle Royale. Now, Epic Games have brought along the T-800 and Sarah Connor as part of a new Terminator skin set.
Fortnite has seen more than its fair share of crossovers throughout the past few years. We’ve seen additions from Halo, God of War, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and many others. Epic Games have now brought another new addition to the Battle Royale.
Less than a week after the arrival of The Predator, the developers have added brand new Terminator-themed skins to the game. You can choose to play as either the T-800 or Sarah Connor, and here’s how you can get your hands on them.
How to get T-800 and Sarah Connor Fortnite skins
You don’t need to do any special quest or challenge in order to get these skins. You can get yourself the Fortnite x Terminator crossover set by spending some V-Bucks in the Item Shop.
You can pick up the Sarah Connor skin for 1,800, or pay 1,500 to get the T-800. Alternatively, you can purchase the entire bundle for 2,800, which may sound like a lot but you’ll also get some great savings.
You can take a closer look at the prices of the Fortnite Future War set below:
- Future War Bundle: 2,800 V-Bucks
- Sarah Connor: 1,800 V-Bucks
- T-800: 1,500 V-Bucks
- Techno-Grip Axe: 800 V-Bucks
- Cyberdyne Salute: 300 V-Bucks
If you purchase the Future War Bundle, then you will also be able to acquire the exclusive T-800 Endoskeleton Arm and HK Skynet Uplink Back Blings, along with the Combat Knife pickaxe. That makes this worth the money you spend.
We don’t know exactly how much longer these skins will be available in the Item Shop, so you’d better hurry up if you want to get your hands on them.

Epic Games respond to leaked Fortnite player logins
Epic Games have denied claims by Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber that their API leaks players’ emails.
There is a growing concern among Fortnite players that their player logins are being leaked through the in-game leaderboard, but Epic Games have reassured fans that their API is safe.
Whenever fans create an online account to play games, their first concern is their privacy security. Developers try to avoid hacker scares but they can still pop up from time to time. One Fortnite fan claimed that this has happened with Epic Games.
Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber stated that he was inexplicably logged out of his account and that the battle royale’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ personal information – such as their email addresses.
This led to a response from a Fortnite data-miner who denied these claims, and their statement was backed up by Epic themselves.
Epic Games deny leaked Fortnite player logins
Yung Calculator tweeted that Epic Games have not secured player logins, so anyone can access these emails and try to hack accounts, reset passwords or kick players out of a match. Additionally, it will also log you out in-game.
“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.
“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally — on Twitter, it means nothing normally — but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”
He further elaborated that he’s not the only player who has experienced this issue- with Clix, Nick Eh 30, and Nate Hill also being affected. “Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it — it’s disgraceful.”
Not everyone is convinced that Yung’s claims are true. Fortnite data-miner ‘FNBRUnreleased’ claimed that these kind of leaks are impossible due to the nature of Epic’s API, so there’s no way that your email address can become available to hackers.
“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they stated.
FNBRUnreleased’s defense for Epic Games has been backed up by the devs themselves who also took to Twitter in order to respond to Yung’s claims.
“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.
“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

At the time of writing, Yung Calc’s tweet is no longer online, so either the player took it down or it was removed by Twitter. Either way, his claims have gathered doubts and Epic Games are standing by the security of their API.
That said, you should always make sure that that you’ve take extra precautions to protect your online information. You can do this by choosing strong passwords that are impossible to guess, and by applying two-factor authentication wherever possible.

Terminator skin set leaked for Fortnite Season 5 via PlayStation Store
A listing on the PlayStation store has teased the Terminator T-800 and Sarah Connor skin coming to Fortnite Season 5.
A listing on the PlayStation store reveals that a Terminator skin is coming to Fortnite Season 5.
Another day, another Fortnite leak. This time, it’s coming straight from the main page of the PlayStation Store, which depicts an upcoming crossover between Terminator and Fortnite. This pack will include both the T-800 Terminator and Sarah Connor.
The Sarah Connor skin has been teased for some time now, considering early this morning the official Fortnite Twitter account posted a transmission that alluded to the addition of the crossover. You can see for yourself in the tweet below.
Players were not expecting the T-800 Terminator skin, since the transmission only mentions Sarah Connor, but since the ad clearly has the Terminator front and center, we know he’ll be in the pack as well.
It’s unknown if Epic Games plans to feature Arnold Schwarzenegger as a skin variant for the Terminator.
Hopefully, we’ll see the skin in the item shop as early as tonight. If not the skins should make their appearances in the coming days. Be sure to keep your eye out each day for the store refreshes.
