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.

How to jump through the flaming ring at Salty Springs in a vehicle

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.

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.

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.
