Fortnite season 5 week 2 challenge guide: How to destroy dog houses

The fourth and final stage of the Doggo challenges in Fortnite season 5 week 2 is actually the easiest of the bunch. For the final stage, you’re required to destroy three dog houses, though, as you might expect, the challenge’s description doesn’t tell you how or where to find them.

Luckily, we’ve got all the details on how to initiate this challenge, where to find the dog houses, and how to destroy them. Remember, during season 5, the challenges are set up in stages, meaning you have prerequisites to complete first. To unlock this particular challenge, you must complete the first three stages. You have to destroy mailboxes, plant the evidence at certain locations, and find clues — all of which we’ve covered in their own separate guides. Once you’ve done the first three, you can start the final Doggo challenge. Here’s how to destroy dog houses in Fortnite.

To be frank, the setup of this challenge is more difficult than the challenge itself. It’ll take you some time to complete the first stages, but once you do, you’ll be ready to destroy some dog houses. The dog houses you need to destroy are found in the northeastern portion of Pleasant Park — surrounding the (human) house in this location. There are around five or six in the area, but to complete the challenge, you only need to destroy three. Check the image above for the location of the house.

As you land, take note of other opponents around you. Since this is a new challenge, the area will likely be heavily populated with players who are also looking to destroy dog houses. If you see a ton of players landing in the same location, you can still try your luck, but be aware that you’ll likely get taken out if you don’t pick up a weapon. In the video above, you can see the locations of five dog houses in the area. To destroy the dog houses, simply smack them with your pickaxe. A couple of slashes will do the trick.

As with most challenges, you don’t actually need to destroy all three in the same match. So if you do get taken out before you’ve completed the challenge, you can rest easy, as your progress carries over from match to match. After you’ve destroyed your third dog house, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 20,000 XP. And with that, you’ll be all finished with the Doggo challenges for this week. For the most part, they aren’t too difficult — it’s just a matter of knowing where to go.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.
