Fortnite season 5 week 11 challenges and how to complete them

Season 5, week 11 of Fortnite is live now, and it comes with a ton of new challenges to go through. They’re mostly Valentine’s Day-themed, sending you around the map to complete love-related requests for the game’s various NPCs. None of the challenges are particularly hard, but almost all of them require you to go to a mysterious location to collect an item that is unmarked on the map.

In this guide, we’ll highlight every one of the new Valentine’s Day challenges, and we’ll walk you through completing all of them. Here are Fortnite’s season 5 week 11 challenges and how to complete them.

Before jumping in to complete the quests, take a look at the challenge hub from the main menu so you have a good idea of what to expect. Most of them are “go here and collect X item” challenges, which are highlighted below.

  • Catch different kinds of fish to find a Valentine’s date for Fishstick (3)
  • Serve Fishstick and his date a fancy dinner at any restaurant (1)
  • Find a rose at Steel Farm or The Orchard (1)
  • Collect Grimbles’ love potion from Fort Crumpet, Coral Cove, or Stealthy Stronghold (3)
  • Deliver the love potion to Slurpy Swamp or Shanty Town (1)
  • Collect chocolate boxes from Pleasant Park, Holly Hedges, or Retail Row (3)
  • Choose a character to be Lovely’s valentine! (1)

As with most challenges during season 5, you have to complete them in order for each NPC. For example, you need to catch different kinds of fish to find a Valentine’s date for Fishstick before serving Fishstick and his date a fancy dinner at any restaurant. These come in stages and can only be done if you do stage one first, and so on.

Here’s how to complete all the challenges for season 5, week 11.

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!
