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.

First ring


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.

Second ring


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.

Third ring


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.

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.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
