Fortnite challenge guide: Choose a character to be Lovely’s Valentine

One of the last challenges you’ll likely go for during Fortnite’s season 5, week 11 is choosing a character to be Lovely’s Valentine. This week’s challenges are all Valentine’s Day-themed, meaning you’ll have to run around the map, completing love-related errands for the game’s NPCs. After you’ve finished the challenge for collecting all three chocolate boxes, you’ll unlock the ability to go for the one for choosing a character to be Lovely’s Valentine.

The challenge description is sort of cryptic, as it doesn’t explain how to choose a character to complete it. In this guide, we’ll walk you through what you need to do. Here’s how to choose a character to be Lovely’s Valentine in Fortnite.

What you need to do for this challenge is simply talk to any of the NPCs around the map. That’s it. After you’ve collected the three chocolate boxes during stage one, visit any of the NPCs around the map and talk with them to make your selection. The map above shows all the locations of the various NPCs in the game (thanks, So land at one of the less populated areas and find the NPC you like.

For the purposes of simplicity, we chose to visit Farmer Steel at the Steel Farm, just east of the Colossal Coliseum. Though, you can choose whichever NPC you’d like. Walk up to them and you’ll be prompted to give them a card, so press Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, or Y on Nintendo Switch to interact with them. Once you do, you’ll earn 20,000 XP and complete the challenge.

We recommend attempting this in Team Rumble, as you’ll be able to respawn if you get killed before talking to an NPC. It’s certainly doable in Battle Royale, but if you aren’t confident in your abilities, Team Rumble is the way to go. It’s also a good idea to coordinate with your team so they can watch your back as you go for the objective.

It’s also smart to go for an NPC that is sort of out of the way. Typically those around the edges of the map are less likely to attract other players — particularly if you fly in the opposite direction of the Battle Bus as it comes in. Though, even if you come across another player, you can quickly run up to the NPC and interact with them before you get taken out.

If you’ve been following along with our guides, this should be one of the last ones you’ll need to complete.

Warzone 2.0’s one-shot snipers are hard to use. Try this weapon instead
Character holding sniper in Warzone 2.0.

Activision finally added the ability to earn one-hit kills with certain snipers as part of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 3. This was a much-needed update that makes heavy rifles more viable. However, this comes with a major caveat, as the only way to earn a one-hit kill is by utilizing explosive rounds on a small selection of snipers, which absolutely tanks a weapon's bullet velocity.

This makes it extremely difficult to actually hit your shots, so inexperienced players won't really reap the benefits of the newly-added one-shot capabilities. However, there is an alternative solution that everyone should try, as it's a viable option that works well at long distances.
