Below is a list of all the new challenges for Fortnite season 5, week 7:

  • Visit Houses in Slurpy Swamp in One Match (3)
  • Collect Books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands (5)
  • Consume Shield Potions (3)
  • Destroy Slurp Barrels (10)
  • Search Chests in Slurpy Swamp (7)
  • Gain Max Shields in a Single Match (1)
  • Eliminations with Zero Shields (1)

Most of them are self-explanatory and can be unlocked within a few rounds. Since many of the challenges feature prerequisites before actually pursuing them, you can’t just complete as many as you can in one game. During season 5, challenges have come in stages, meaning you have to complete the previous stage before unlocking the next. Despite that, most of the challenges won’t pose much of a threat, though there are a couple that aren’t as straightforward, and we’ll go into more detail on how to complete those below.

Collect Books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands

This challenge is available right away without having to complete any prerequisites. There are three books at Holly Hedges and two at Sweaty Sands, and you need to collect all of them. They can be collected in the same match, but depending on the storm and other factors, it might be easiest to quit out after you’ve gotten all the books in one location before visiting the next.

Destroy Slurp Barrels

Before being able to begin the challenge for destroying Slurp Barrels, you need to first complete the first stage for visiting three houses in Slurpy Swamp in one game. You can do so by visiting the homes to the southwest of this area on an island. However, there seems to be a bug wherein you get credit for completing the challenge, but stage 2 — for destroying Slurp Barrels — doesn’t unlock. If this happens, we recommend waiting until Epic Games fixes it.

And that’s how to complete this week’s tougher Fortnite challenges. The rest of them are straightforward, like searching chests at Slurpy Swamp or gaining max shields in a single match. If you explore and loot frequently, you’ll be able to complete the challenges with ease. Just remember, Epic Games is currently working on that progression bug, so you might want to hold off on completing this week’s challenges until the issue is resolved.

Final Fantasy 16 Timely Accessories: what they are and how to equip them
Screenshot of the main character from Final Fantasy 16 fighting an enemy.

Traditionally, Final Fantasy titles don't come with difficulty options. As the series has grown leading up to Final Fantasy 16, Square Enix has started to add some options to make the game more accessible to players. Considering this latest entry is more action-heavy than any that has come before, with advanced moves like perfect dodges and parries, these tools are more necessary than ever for longtime fans who prefer a more traditional JRPG experience. While the Timely Accessories can't turn this action game into a turn-based one like older entries, it can at least give you enough of an edge to feel comfortable getting through combat so you can enjoy the deep and complex story. Let's go over what these Timely Accessories are and how to equip them in Final Fantasy 16.
What are Timely Accessories?

Timely Accessories in Final Fantasy 16 are basically your difficulty modifiers, but instead of being menu options, they're items. These types of items have become a bit more common in the last few years and include the Chicken Hat from Metal Gear Solid V. This time, there are five different accessories that you can pick from, each of which modifies the game in different ways to give you an edge in combat. Here are all five of the Timely Accessories and what they do:
Ring of Timely Evasion
When equipped, Clive will automatically evade attacks, as long as the attacks can be evaded.
Ring of Timely Focus
When equipped, time slows before an evadable enemy attack strikes Clive. There's no effect when equipped with the Ring of Timely evasion.
Ring of Timely Strikes
When equipped, complex ability combinations can be executed by simply pressing the Square button.
Ring of Timely Assistance
When equipped, pet commands will be executed automatically based on Clive's actions.
Ring of Timely Healing
When equipped, healing potions will automatically be used when Clive's HP falls below a certain threshold. More common healing items like potions will be used before rarer ones like high potions.
How to equip Timely Accessories
When you first begin Final Fantasy 16 you will need to choose between Story and Action Focused modes. These technically also serve as your difficulty selection, but it's really just a simplified way of enabling the Timely Accessories. Regardless of which difficulty you choose, you will always have access to all these accessories and can switch at any time while playing (as long as you are not currently in combat).

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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.
