It’s a new week, which can only mean one thing: A new set of Fortnite challenges are live and ready for you to complete. For season 7, week 5, you’ll find a wide variety of challenges that send you around the map to find items, as well as inflicting damage with specific weapons, and more. This list is a lot more varied than challenges from recent weeks, and are — for the most part — much more fun to complete.

As usual, we advise taking a look at the list of challenges as soon as you can, so you’ve got a decent idea of what you need to do for the week. Since this list isn’t as complicated as others, you should be able to get at least a couple of them checked off by playing naturally.

The full list of challenges for season 7, week 5 is as follows:

  • Destroy computer equipment at satellite stations or Corny Complex (3)
  • Damage IO Guards (250)
  • Eliminate trespassers (2)
  • Deal damage with IO or Alien weapons (500)
  • Loot supply drops (2)
  • Damage a saucer with a pilot inside (800)
  • Open an IO chest at a satellite station or Corny Complex (1)

Some of them, like destroying computer equipment at certain locations and eliminating trespassers, will require a bit more effort. Below are guides for all of this week’s complicated challenges.

Is Fortnite down? Updates and matchmaking status on July 26
Characters including Optimus Prime from Fortnite.

Is Fortnite down right now? A quick look on Twitter, as well as a message in-game, suggest that some players will have trouble getting into a match of the popular royale today, July 26.
For a multiplayer, live-service game like Fortnite, the status of the servers make or breaks the experience. The game is basically unplayable if the game goes down. That's why server issues happening today are frustrating for lots of Fortnite players, although it doesn't seem like everyone is affected.
Some players currently can't even log into the game, but if you do, a message indicating there are issues does appear in the lobby menu. "Matchmaking issues: Matchmaking is currently experiencing issues, and we are working to resolve them," the message says. Tweets from the official Fortnite Status Twitter also state that Epic Games is investigating issues players currently have with logging in, matchmaking, and using push-to-talk. That said, Fortnite's developers are "investigating a fix" and will "provide an update when this is resolved."
So, if you're planning on playing Fortnite today, know that you might run into some server issues while logging in or matchmaking. These problems don't seem to impact all players, though, as I was able to successfully get into three matches during this period. 
If Fortnite is down for you, there isn't a lot you can do other than make sure the game is fully updated and that your platform's internet connection is stable. Epic Games will likely release a fix for these issues soon, and after that, everyone's Fortnite experience should be back to normal.
Fortnite is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch.

Most of the time in BattleBit Remastered, you'll probably be more focused on just trying to survive than anything else.

If you've been running with squads, you might have noticed yourself earning something called Squad Points as you play. These points are shared among your entire squad, and building them up is a great way to turn the tides of battle. That is, if you know how to use them.
