Fortnite season 5 week 13 challenges and how to complete them

Week 13 of Fortnite’s season 5 is underway, which means you’ll have a new list of challenges to get through. Fortunately, this week’s list isn’t too terribly difficult — with a healthy mixture of combat-related objectives, along with ones that send you to specific locations to collect items, and so on. As you might expect, the game doesn’t specifically tell you where some of these hidden locations are, which is where we come in.

In this guide, we’ll highlight each and every one of the new week 13 challenges, and we’ll walk you through completing some of the trickier ones. Here are Fortnite’s season 5, week 13 challenges and how to complete them.

It’s always a good idea to at least take a look at the next set of challenges for the week so you’ve got a mental note of what you need to do. You can view the challenges from the main menu, or by simply referencing our list below.

  • Scan a server at a Surface Hub (0/1)
  • Throw fruit at Hunter’s Haven (0/3)
  • Damage opponents at Hunter’s Haven, The Orchard, and Retail Row (0/300)
  • Pistol Damage (0/300)
  • Bathe in the Purple Pool at Steamy Stacks (0/1)
  • Enter the Zero Point (0/1)
  • Destroy Crystal Trees (0/5)

As you can see, they aren’t too bad this week. The ones we’ll be going through in more detail are the challenges that feature unmarked locations on the map. Challenges like dealing pistol damage or throwing fruit at various locations should be self-explanatory — while others, like scanning a server at a Surface Hub, aren’t as clear.

Here’s how to complete the tougher challenges during season 5, week 13.

One of the first challenges you’ll probably attempt is the one for scanning a server at a Surface Hub. The nice thing is that this one doesn’t have a prerequisite, so you can go for it right away. Click the link below for more information on finding servers at Surface Hubs.

For bathing in the Purple Pool at Steamy Stacks, you need to visit the westernmost pool in this location. You also need to complete stage one of Deadfire’s challenges before being able to attempt this quest. The guide below has more details on getting through this one.

Fortnite is coming back to iOS, but Epic Games still isn’t happy about it
Solid Snake aiming a pistol out of a box in Fortnite.

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."

Sheep carry guns in Palworld.

We all know that Palworld is so much more than just "Pokemon with guns." Even ignoring all the crafting, breeding, and survival aspects, there are way more than just regular guns to unlock and make. You have melee options, spears, bows, handguns, explosives, and more at your disposal. If you want to keep up with the difficulty curve and hunt down the higher-level Pals, and especially the Legendaries, then you need the strongest weapons in your arsenal. Here are all the weapons currently in Palworld and how you can unlock and craft them.
How to unlock and craft every weapon
Weapons in Palworld unlock as you level up, but you don't just get them automatically. You will still need to gather all the resources and craft them yourself. Here are all the weapons you unlock in order as you level up, plus the recipe to make them.

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.
