Week 5 challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale are live, presenting Season 4 Battle Pass owners with another set of seven objectives to complete. These include some fairly routine objectives–one of which is bugged as of this writing–while a trickier one involves tracking down a Greasy Grove treasure map. More importantly, you’ll need the cooperation of other players to do some dancing.
First up is the Hard-difficulty challenge to follow the treasure map found in Greasy Grove. You can head to Greasy Grove and track down the map to start this; alternatively, as with past instances of this type of challenge, you can actually head right to where the treasure itself awaits. This one is a bit trickier to find than most–it’s on the outside wall of a structure just northeast of Snobby Shores. Simply land on the slanted roof or build your way up and you’ll be able to collect the Battle Pass icon.
What isn’t labeled as Hard but could be quite difficult is the challenge asking you to dance with others to raise the Disco Ball near Loot Lake. The ball itself is found in the northernmost of the three buildings that line the western shoreline of the lake. Enter the ground floor and you’ll see the disco ball in the middle, surrounded by a dance floor in all four corners of the room. You’ll need to coordinate with other players to all dance on these simultaneously; the process takes a few seconds as the disco ball rises up toward the ceiling. It’s possible to do this with other random players, but your easiest bet will be to squad up with three friends and head there together.
Week 5 also tasks you to use a vending machine three times. This is relatively straightforward, but if you haven’t used a vending machine before, you might be at a loss. Vending machines allow you to exchange crafting materials for items; they’re located in fixed spots, but they don’t always appear in every match. You can consult our vending machine location guide to find likely spots for these to pop up, but make sure to come with wood, stone, or metal–the cost of using the machine may be high depending on the rarity.
Racking up two eliminations with the minigun or light machine gun sounds straightforward enough, though it of course requires you to happen upon one of the two weapons. This is labeled as a Hard-difficulty challenge, but Epic Games has said it’s currently bugged–kills aren’t reporting correctly, so you may not get credit for any eliminations you pull off. Epic will provide more information when it has it; whenever it is working, you’ll likely want to try doing this in a Solo playlist so that you don’t have to worry about a downed enemy being revived.
The same advice holds true for the challenge asking you to eliminate three opponents in Lucky Landing–not having respawns should make this easier. The remaining objectives simply ask you to deal 500 damage with SMGs to opponents (anything in the SMG family will do) and to search seven chests in Dusty Divot, the meteor impact site added as part of the big Season 4 update.
Completing these challenges will reward you with Battle Stars, which rank up your Battle Pass and allow you to earn Season 4 skins and cosmetic rewards. Completing all of the challenges in a given week also completes a Blockbuster challenge, which entitles you to a new loading screen that directs you to spots where you can obtain a free Battle Pass tier. You can see how to complete every Season 4 objective released so far in our Fortnite challenges guide.
