Fortnite Chapter 2 — Season 5 features the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda

Epic Games revealed details on Fortnite’s next season, which features the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda. The bounty hunter-themed Chapter 2 — Season 5 will add new characters, weapons, and locations to the battle royale game.

A trailer for this season’s battle pass reveals the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda alongside a batch of new characters. The trailer shows him sniping with his signature Amban rifle and using his jetpack to jump between buildings. It’s not clear how Baby Yoda fits in during gameplay, but images on the battle pass page tease that he may be featured as a backpack for the Mandalorian.

Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 Battle Pass Gameplay Trailer

The season, referred to as Zero Point, revolves around hunters from different realities coming together to stop “the loop,” a cataclysmic event that threatens the game’s island. The narrative-focused season stars a character named Agent Jones, who will recruit more hunters as the season progresses. The battle pass page shows off a few of the new hunters including Mancake, a western-themed stack of pancakes.

In addition to the Amban rifle, the new season brings some notable new weapons to the game. The Night Hawk will allow players to track their targets and the Dragon’s Breath shotgun is described as “firey.” The game’s new map features jungles, an ancient arena, and a crystalline desert.

The new season adds a revamped quest system based on the bounty hunter motif. Players can take on bounties from the various hunters and complete them to receive bars, a new currency for the season. They can be found in hidden stashes and are rewarded for killing players as well. Bars can be used to buy “exotic weapons, upgrades, intel, services, and more.”

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Chapter 2 — Season 4 just wrapped up with a massive event in which players came together to defeat Galactus. The new season launches today alongside the game’s new Fortnite Crew subscription service.

How to launch fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite
Launching fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite.

The week 2 Fortnite Coachella quests are live now, and while a lot of them are straightforward, one seems to have caused some confusion for many players. The quest is for launching fireworks at Coachella Island, and as expected, the game doesn't necessarily specify how to complete the objective. In this guide, we'll show you how to launch fireworks at Coachella in Fortnite.
Visit Coachella Island

The first step is to actually make your way to Coachella Island. You cannot complete this quest during a normal match and instead must head into a Creator Made Island. To do so, you'll need to head to Island Code from the game mode menu and utilize the code 5449-4207-1280. Then, launch into a match on Coachella Island.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.
