Fortnite season 5 week 12 challenges and how to complete them

It’s Thursday, which means the latest set of Fortnite challenges is live and ready for you to complete. For season 5, week 12, you’ll find a much easier batch of challenges when compared to the previous week. In general, you’ll simply need to visit a few locations around the map and collect items — something you’re probably very familiar with if you’re an experienced player. Though, there are also a couple of trickier challenges this week that might cause some issues.

In this guide, we’ll highlight all of the new challenges, and we’ll go through how to complete the trickier ones step-by-step. Here are Fortnite’s season 5 week 12 challenges and how to complete them.

We recommend you at least glance at the challenge list before jumping in so you can effectively make a plan for completing them. In general, this week’s list is straightforward, but as always you should be aware of the order of challenges, which come in stages. Here’s the full list of season 5, week 12 challenges.

  • Deal damage within 15 seconds of gliding (0/200) – 20000 XP
  • Visit Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay (0/1) – 20000 XP
  • Destroy inflatable tubemen at gas stations (0/3) – 20000 XP
  • Find a family portrait from a shipwreck (0/1) – 20000 XP
  • Throw a fish back in the water (0/1) – 20000 XP
  • Hit different opponents with a harpoon gun (0/3) – 20000 XP
  • Catch different weapon types from fishing spots (0/3) – 20000 XP
  • Hit an opponent within 10 seconds of Zero Point Dashing (5,19,15,20,25) – 55000 to 22000 XP

A lot are self-explanatory, like catching different weapon types while fishing or hitting enemies with a harpoon gun. However, the first five challenges must be completed in order, as they all fall within the same set. You’re probably used to completing challenges in stages, but it’s worth mentioning for the newer players.

Below, we’ll go through the tougher challenges that most players might be struggling with.

Season 5, week 12 challenge guide

Visit Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay

In order to begin stage 2 for visiting Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay, you must first complete stage 1 — which requires you to deal 200 damage within 15 seconds of gliding. For whatever reason, this wasn’t working for us in Battle Royale, so we advise attempting it in Team Rumble. Start by grabbing a weapon or two and then eliminate yourself by jumping from a tall surface. Then, glide to a heavily populated area and immediately start shooting an opponent. Once you’ve dealt 200 damage, you’ll be able to start stage 2.

For stage 2, you need to visit three listed locations, which we cover in the guide below, so click the link for more details.

Next up, you’ll need to destroy three inflatable tubemen llamas at gas stations. Each gas station has two llamas, meaning you’ll need to visit at least two for this challenge. We go into more detail on how to complete the challenge in the guide below.

Then, you’ll need to find a portrait from one of the shipwrecks around the map. There are a couple of options with multiple portraits, but for this one, you only need to interact with one. Click the link below for more information.

The final challenge you’ll likely have issues with is for hitting an opponent within 10 seconds of Zero Point Dashing. There are a few things to know about this challenge, like how to actually use the Zero Point Dash mechanic, and where the best spots are for utilizing the maneuver. Visit the guide below for more details on how to complete the objective.

And that covers all the tougher Fortnite challenges for season 5, week 12. For the most part, they aren’t too difficult, but there are some that send you to locations you might not be familiar with — or require you to utilize a mechanic you don’t typically use. As usual, we recommend attempting most of them in Team Rumble, as you’ll have the ability to respawn if you die. Just follow the individual links above for more help on getting these challenges done.

Fortnite is coming back to iOS, but Epic Games still isn’t happy about it

Fortnite is set to come back to iOS in Europe sometime in 2024. This will mark the first time a natively running version of Fortnite will be available on iOS since Apple removed the game from the App Store in 2020.

Apple did so at the time because Epic tried to use its own third-party payment system, kicking off a series of legal battles in an attempt to get Apple to open up its platform more. Although those legal battles have yielded mixed results for Epic, a newly passed Digital Markets Act in the European Union is forcing Apple to do things like "allow third parties to inter-operate with the gatekeeper’s own services in certain specific situations" and "allow their business users to promote their offer and conclude contracts with their customers outside the gatekeeper’s platform."

Rock Band 4 gets its final piece of DLC next week after over 8 years of support

Harmonix revealed that the January 25 DLC tracks for Rock Band 4 will be the final new ones added to the game.

This ends a streak of more than eight years of weekly DLC for the rhythm game. Ever since Rock Band 4 was released in October 2015, new DLC songs have been made available for purchase every week, giving the game one of the most impressive live service tails in the industry. Ultimately, Harmonix says it will have released nearly 3,000 songs as DLC for Rock Band 4 after the final content drop next week, and that live service support for seasons and online play will "continue as normal" after next week.
