Fortnite season 4 week 5 challenge guide: How to jump through the flaming ring at Salty Springs

Season 4 of Fortnite is still ongoing, and its week 5 challenges are now live. For this week, there’s a challenge that requires you to jump through a flaming ring with a vehicle at Salty Springs. While this particular area is marked on the map, the flaming ring is not, so we’ll show you where to find it and how to jump through it with a vehicle. It’s a straightforward challenge once you know where to grab a vehicle and where to find the ring, but if you’re stuck, you’ve come to the right place.

Here’s how to jump through a flaming ring with a vehicle at Salty Springs in Fortnite.

Where to find Salty Springs

Salty Springs is found in the middle of the map, to the west of The Authority. Here, you’ll find a gas station and a few vehicles to choose from, so do your best to land close to one so you can hop in before someone else does. Despite this being the location of a weekly challenge, it’s not as busy as you might expect, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still be cautious. There’s actually a vehicle right next to the gas station, so make a beeline for it to ensure someone else doesn’t steal it.

As for jumping through the flaming ring, you’ll find a ramp on the south side of Salty Springs that leads from west to east. Use the image above for reference. The red dot represents the ramp and the arrow represents the direction you need to go in order to jump through the ring.

Luckily, the ring is very close to the ramp so you don’t need to gather too much speed to make it through the ring. Give yourself some space, then hit the gas, making sure you’re lined up with the ramp. Once you pass through, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and earn some XP. Below, we’ll include a video of us completing the challenge for your reference.

As you can see, you don’t need to be going very fast to get through the ramp, even if your vehicle is in bad shape like ours was. If you’re having trouble, make sure you coordinate with your team so they can make sure any nearby enemies don’t take you out while you’re trying to make the jump. Your team can also ensure that the vehicle you’re going for doesn’t get taken by an enemy. Do note that you must jump through the ramp with a vehicle. Attempting to complete this challenge on foot won’t work, sadly. One final tip is to try this challenge later on in the season when this area is less busy. Since Salty Springs is home to this week’s challenge, you’ll find more enemies here than usual, but it’s still more manageable than an area like Stark Industries.

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.

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.

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.
