Fortnite season 5 week 6 challenge guide: How to signal the Coral Buddies

It’s common to have some kind of collectible challenge each week in Fortnite. Season 5 week 6 is no different, and for this challenge, you’re required to “signal the Coral Buddies.” The quest’s description doesn’t tell you exactly where to go or what to do, but fortunately, we’ve got the scoop on how to complete this challenge.

Do keep in mind, you must complete the challenge for blowing up fishing holes at Sharky Shell, Sweaty Sands, or Flopper Pond, given to you by Turk before being able to start this one. Once that’s complete, you’ll be able to head to Coral Castle to signal the Coral Buddies in Fortnite. Here’s how.

First clam

In essence, you simply have to interact with the three clams in Coral Castle to complete this challenge. Press and hold Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, or Y on Nintendo Switch to interact with the clams at their designated locations.

You can interact with them in any order, but we’ll go from north to south for simplicity. The first one is located in the northwest section of this area by a huge rock. Use the image of the map and screenshot above for reference.

Second clam

The next clam is found on the southwestern side of this area, next to a blue tree, sort of in the middle of Coral Castle.

Third clam

Finally, the last one is on the south side of Coral Castle close to another rock. After you’ve interacted with all three, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and 20,000 XP for your troubles.

Since Coral Castle is home to a weekly challenge, you’ll likely come across a slew of enemy players, all with the same goal in mind. Because of that, we highly recommend bringing along a teammate or two, just to make things easier. If you do get killed before interacting with all three clams, you can — of course — pick up where you left off in another match, but it’s more efficient to get it done in one go. As always, you can wait a few days to give it another try, and it’ll likely be less busy once a new set of challenges rolls around.

Another piece of advice is to land at one of the buildings in Coral Castle to get stocked up on gear. Many times, players will simply make a beeline toward the objective without gearing up, leaving them vulnerable if they come across an enemy player. Don’t make that mistake — take the extra time to grab a weapon, some ammo, and shields. You’ll be glad you did.

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.

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.
