Fortnite season 5 week 10 challenges and how to complete them

Fortnite season 5 week 10 is underway, along with a new set of challenges to complete — hopefully getting you closer to the coveted battle pass level 100. For the most part, this week’s list of challenges is straightforward, especially compared to week 9. Many of the challenges send you to locations that are marked on the map, so you won’t need to spend much time searching for where to go.

Though, there is one challenge that still might cause a few issues. Fortunately, we’ve got the scoop on how to complete all of the trickier quests you might be struggling with. Here, we’ll go through all of week 10’s new challenges and provide tips for completing them — as well as an in-depth guide for one of the harder challenges. These are Fortnite’s season 5 week 10 challenges and how to complete them.

It’s recommended to at least take a glance at the challenge list so you can make a mental note of them as you play. Since most of them are simple, you should have no problem getting through them in a few matches.

  • Use food consumables (3)
  • Eliminations with common weapons (1)
  • Go for a swim at Lazy Lake (1)
  • Dance near Pleasant Park (1)
  • Deal melee damage (300)
  • Upgrade weapons (3)
  • Eliminate IO guards (5)

Challenges like consuming food, eliminating enemies with common weapons, and dealing melee damage are all things you’d likely do while playing anyway. In terms of upgrading weapons, certain NPCs will give you this option at main hubs, so look out for them as you progress through the match. We like to use the one by Catty Corner. It’ll cost gold bars to use this feature, but by now, you should be well stocked up.

This week, there’s only one tricky challenge, and it requires you to defeat five IO guards.

There are a couple of reasons this challenge is tough. For one, you have to complete the prerequisites beforehand, which require you to eliminate an enemy with a common weapon, deal 300 melee damage, and upgrade three weapons. Once you complete the first three stages, you’ll be able to start stage 4, which requires you to defeat five IO guards. Follow our guide on how to eliminate IO guards for more in-depth steps on how to complete it.

And that’s everything you’ll need to know about Fortnite’s season 5 week 10 challenges. Again, this list is a bit lighter than the previous week’s challenges, due to many of them featuring marked locations on the map. For the challenge that requires you to swim at Lazy Lake, any of the surrounding bodies of water will do — including the two pools on the south side.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!
