Fortnite season 5 week 2 challenge guide: How to drive through flaming rings

Fortnite’s season 5 week 2 challenges have just dropped, and while most of them aren’t too difficult, they do require you to go to specific locations to find certain items. One that might be stumping you requires you to drive through three specific flaming rings. It sounds simple enough, but there are some things you need to do before you’re able to get started with it. For one, this season’s challenges come in stages, meaning you have to complete the first stage to unlock the next — and so on.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to unlock the challenge for driving through flaming rings, along with tips on how to complete it. For this one in particular, it’s stage three of the Burnout challenges, meaning you have to finish the first two beforehand. Stage one requires you to find car parts, while stage two sends you on a quest to deliver a vehicle from Steamy Stacks to Pleasant Park. Once you’ve done those two challenges, you can start this one. Here’s how to drive through flaming rings in Fortnite.

To complete this challenge, you need to drive through three rings, all of which are spread out around Pleasant Park. As usual, you don’t need to complete them in a specific order, but for the purposes of this guide, we’ll be covering them in a clockwise formation. To start, land toward the center of Pleasant Park to pick up a vehicle. It doesn’t have to be a fast car, but we do recommend grabbing one with enough gas so you can drive through all three rings in the same match. We advise grabbing a car with around 75% fuel or so.

Once you’ve grabbed a car, drive north toward the Stealthy Stronghold, where you’ll find the first ring ahead of a ramp. Use the images above for reference.

For the second flaming ring, you can find it to the southeast of the previous one between two hills, just before the blue bridge. It’s located ahead of some water beneath the aforementioned bridge.

For the final flaming ring, drive across the blue bridge to the east, where you’ll find a little race track among a dirt road in an area called Mowdown. Do be careful, as there are some enemy NPCs in this area that can take you out with little issues. Remember, you don’t need to drive through all three rings in the same game, as your progress does carry over from match to match.

After you’ve driven through the final flaming ring, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 20,000 XP for doing so. After this, you’ll be all finished with the Burnout challenges for this week.
