Fortnite chapter 3 guide: Season 1, week 5 quests and how to complete them

As the first season of Fortnite chapter 3 chugs along, more quests are added weekly. For week five, we’ve got a brand-new set of challenges — many of which will send you across the map to collect items or destroy objects around you. While most of this week’s objectives aren’t necessarily skill-based, you will need to be familiar with the map, as well as with the most efficient way to complete the challenges. That’s where we come in.

Here are all the season 1, week 5 challenges and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Build structures at Coney Crossroads, Sleepy Sound, and Condo Canyon (3)

Overhead shot of Condo Canyon in Fortnite.

For this one, simply build one structure at each of the aforementioned locations to complete the challenge. You don’t need to build all three structures in the same match, so just keep this one in the back of your mind as you play, and you’ll get through it in no time.

Claim an abandoned tent (1)

Standing by tent in Fortnite.

This quest is a bit more luck-based, but it’s not too difficult. Around the map, you’ll find tents, some of which are claimed by other players. What you need to do is interact with a tent to claim it for yourself. We’ve had luck finding abandoned tents around gas stations, but they can be anywhere. Just be on the lookout for them as you play normally, and then claim one tent to finish this challenge.

Drive a vehicle through water (1)

River in Fortnite.

There are plenty of vehicles around the map you can use, but we like to land at Condo Canyon, as there’s typically a sports car available by the plaza. Then, drive through the shallow river that surrounds this area to quickly check this quest off your list.

Knock down Timber Pines (5)

Pine trees in Fortnite.

Timber Pines are found all along the northwestern side of the map, especially just north of the island at Camp Cuddle. Use the image above as a reference so you know what to look for. Keep in mind, they spawn in clusters, so hopefully, you’ll be able to destroy all five back-to-back.

Gain Shields using a Shield Keg (100)

Map of Lt. Llama in Fortnite.

Shield Kegs do spawn as floor loot and appear in chests, but the easiest way to find it is to purchase one from Lt. John Llama for 250 gold bars. This NPC is found to the southwest of Logjam Lumberyard, indicated by the spot on the map above (thanks, Once you’ve obtained a Shield Keg, use it to heal 100 HP. If your health isn’t low, it’s best to save it until you need it.

Teleport using rifts at different seven outposts (3)

Map of rifts in Fortnite.

There are several rifts around the map, each spawning at Seven Outposts. These are found on the corners of the island, so use the map above for more details on their locations (courtesy of For this challenge, you need to travel through three rifts, but you don’t need to visit all three in the same match.

Destroy structures with a motorboat or motorboat missiles (30)

Motorboat in Fortnite.

Motorboats spawn wherever there’s a dock and are found all around the island. For the sake of simplicity, we like landing at Logjam Lumberyard, where a dock can be found just south of the large cabin. Here, you’ll find a motorboat, which can be used to destroy objects around you. Fire missiles at the logs, trees, and anything else you can find, and you’ll get through this quest quickly. As always, if you don’t finish it in one match, you can pick up where you left off in a separate one.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
