The Fortnite Season 5 Week 6 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 the best way for you to complete them.
We’re in Week 6 of Fortnite Season 5, which means that there are brand new weekly challenges for you to tackle for some quick XP and to unlock rare skins as you progress through the Battle Pass. This is a great way to level up and get cool new gear.
While last week’s challenges focused on Gnomes, the theme for Week 6 revolves around fishing. You’ll spend most of your time catching fish, destroying boats, and blowing up fishing holes. These aren’t the most difficult tasks to tackle, and you can get them fairly quickly.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 6 Challenges
There are a total of eight challenges for you to attempt during this week. Seven of them are Epic Quests that you can complete at your own leisure, and there is also a timed legendary challenge that’s only available for a week.
Here are all the Fortnite Season 5 Week 6 challenges:
- Blow up Fishing Holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond (3)
- Destroy Motorboats (3)
- Blow up Fishing Holes at Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and near Steamy Stacks (3)
- Catch Fish (7)
- Signal the Coral Buddies (1)
- Destroy Boats (7)
- Destroy Fishing Rod Barrels (7)
- Get Headshots (20, 40, 60, 80, 100)
Many of these can be completed fast and easily by landing in the right spot. Catching fish, destroying fishing rod barrels, and destroying boats can all be tackled together if you visit any area that is surrounded by water.
Things get more difficult when it comes to blowing up fishing holes. You’ll need to make your way to six different areas in order to complete these challenge. Throw grenades into the fishing holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, Flopper Pond, Lazy Lake Island, Lake Canoe, and Steamy Stacks.
The legendary challenge is basic but difficult. You will need to land a total of 100 headshots, with XP rewards being granted for every 20 that you score. Pick a good weapon with less recoil, and work on your precision with this challenge.
Many of these tasks can be completed in a single match of Team Rumble. Be sure to tackle Season 5’s weekly challenges to get yourself a ton of XP quickly.

How to go invisible with Fortnite’s Predator Cloak Device
Hide from your opponents with Predator’s Cloak Device and become invisible. Learn how to use and what it does in Fortnite Season 5.
The legendary extra-terrestrial species Predator has arrived in Fortnite Season 5. He’s not come alone though as he’s brought with him a Cloak Device that players can use for invisibility.
Fortnite has offered varying degrees of invisibility in its game before. Examples include the bush that players could equip, outfits that blended in with the environment, and most recently salt that you could burrow around in underground.
However, these faux attempts at full concealment are nothing compared to Predator’s new Cloak Device. If players are able to obtain it, then they have a bonafide method of becoming practically see-through.
Fortnite Season 5 Predator Cloak Device
For a piece of sophisticated technology from a foreign part of the universe, Predator’s alien technology is surprisingly accessible to all.
Once you have your hands on the Cloak Device, all you need to do is simply activate the item, and you’ll instantly turn invisible. It should be noted that your outline can still be faintly seen. But from a distance, you are a mere blur to the naked eye.
The item possess the following stats:
- Cooldown: 30 seconds
- Duration: 30 seconds
- Exit Duration: 1 second
- Expire Alert: last 5 seconds
- NPC can go transparent too for 15 sec & 30 sec cooldown
Here’s the device in action thanks to HYPEX.
If you draw a weapon then your cloaking phase will be interrupted immediately. The Cloak is designed to allow you to escape from an enemy or provide a brief respite.
Predator’s Cloak Device seems to provide a bit more privacy than the Shadow Stones did – a previous item in Fortnite that offered some invisibility. However, they proved to be very buggy and never maintained a constant spot in Fortnite due to this.
There is plenty more Predator content to come and we’ve been able to see all the leaked Predator cosmetics that are scheduled for Fortnite.
Stay tuned for more information on Predator and future characters being added to Season 5.

Leaked Predator cosmetics after Fortnite 15.21 patch
The Predator has arrived in Fortnite Season 5, and leakers have discovered all the cosmetic items coming with the extra-terrestrial hunter.
With the Fortnite v15.21 update comes the Predator, ready to hunt down the island’s best warriors, and leakers have revealed all the cosmetics coming with it.
As Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 progresses, more and more characters from pop culture are added to the popular battle royale. We’ve seen Star Wars’ Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, and characters from AMC’s The Walking Dead. Now, the Predator, the titular alien warrior from the classic 1980’s action movie has come to Fortnite Season 5.
A Predator crossover in the Stealthy Stronghold POI was spotted by an eagle-eyed player with familiar sights from the movies showing up. And for the past week, Predator’s ship has been parked in the POI, all-but confirming the extra-terrestrial hunter’s arrival.
We now know that Predator has come to join Jonesy’s ragtag team of hunters defending the Zero Point, and will be unlocked as the secret skin in Season 5’s Battle Pass.
All Fortnite Predator cosmetics leaked
Leakers had previously discovered the skin in the game files, but with the 15.21 update, we can now see everything coming alongside the alien hunter.
As revealed by Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi, there will be several cosmetic items coming with the ‘Jungle Hunter’ set. These include a back bling, weapon wrap, and harvesting tool.
The Predator’s Vautja Wristblades will be coming as a Mythic item, dealing extra damage to the environment and players. As it’s also included in the cosmetics leak, it’s possible that there will be a regular harvesting tool version of these blades, too.
The weapon wrap has a Predator-themed digital design, with ‘Reactive.WeaponFire’ being included in the description. It’s likely this wrap will apply further cosmetic changes to your guns.
Predator’s back bling is an alien skull taken as a trophy by the hunter, with it being described as a “grim keepsake from a far-off world.”
Along with Predator comes new Mythic items, the Predator Claw and Cloaking Device.
Stalk your prey by becoming invisible with the Predator’s Cloaking Device, but be mindful that the effect will be removed by swapping weapons or swimming. Then after successfully hunting your target, take them out with the Predator Claw.

Fortnite v15.21 patch notes: Predator arrives
Fortnite v15.21 sees the official arrival of Predator, along with his Claws as Mythic Weapons, a new Cloaking Device, and bug fixes.
Just a week after the last major update, Epic Games have dropped the new 15.21 Update for Fortnite, bringing the terrifying Predator to PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch.
2021 is in full swing, and after a break over the festive season, Epic are back at work dropping patches for the always-popular battle royale title. After the release of the 15.20 update last week, the developers have dropped a new one on Wednesday, January 20.
While the 15.21 patch isn’t a major update, that doesn’t mean it won’t have a profound effect on the game and its meta.
Last week, a strange spaceship was discovered in the trees and Stealthy Stronghold, and it appears the alien pilot who flies this ship has finally arrived on the island, with Predator set to become the latest hunter in Fortnite Season 5.
Predator joins Fortnite Season 5
After days of speculation, Predator has finally joined the ragtag group of bounty hunters who have roamed around the Fortnite island throughout Season 5. The news won’t come as too much of a major surprise, as the alien’s ship has been sitting in Stealthy Stronghold all week, although it wasn’t clear how it would factor into Season 5.
Now, we finally know that Predator will not only be the secret skin in Fortnite’s Season 5 Battle Pass, but that he will join the group of Hunters who have been roaming the map, protecting the island’s reality after the Zero Point event.

Predator also brings his own Mythic Weapon, his Claws, which act like a pickaxe but can do some serious damage too. According to leaks, the Claws deal 100 environmental damage, and deal 20 damage per hit to enemies with their first two strikes, while a third will deal 30.
Predator’s Cloaking Device will also be available, allowing players to go invisible for a short time. This effect will be removed when the user swaps weapons or starts to swim.
Fortnite 15.21 Bug Fixes
Of course, no Fortnite update would be complete without the developers addressing some issues and glitches that have been affecting the game.
This week, Epic are looking at problems across all Fortnite modes, and according to the game’s official Trello board, these are the bugs we can expect to see fixed following this patch. We’ll be sure to update this as the developers confirm them.
