We are heading into our last week of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5. Epic has released the Week 15 Epic Challenges. They are each worth 40K xp. The challenges are not particularly hard and seemed focus on using up your gold bar stash.

EPIC Support A Creator Code: Goblin_Griff

Here are the challenges:

Tier 1

  • Distance traveled through sand (0/500)

This challenge is most easily accomplished in Team Rumble. Head to the sand area near Zero Point and start sand tunneling. Travel 500 meters and the quest will be completed.

  • Spend 5 seconds within 20 meters of enemies while sand tunneling (0/5)

This seems to be the funniest challenge of the week. Our recommendation is to jump into a game of duo, trio, or squads. Head over to a sandy area (like Kit’s Cantina), knock down an opponent (don’t eliminate). Drop into the sand and wait for 5 seconds. Simple enough.

Tier 2

  • Spend Bars (0/500)

Head over to your favorite NPC and buy a weapon or any other wares that the NPC may be selling. Buy multiple items and you should be able to knock off this quest quickly.

Tier 3

  • Purchase Item from a Character (0/1)

See tips for the Tier 2 quest. You should be able to complete both quests at the same NPC.

  • Upgrade a weapon (0/1)

Head over to your favorite NPC that upgrades weapons. We love Kondor because he always seems to be roaming around the Misty Meadows square.

  • Get Intel from a character (0/1)

In Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, getting Intel means purchasing any sort of map from a NPC for a small amount of Gold. Our favorite NPC to purchase Intel from is Ragnarok. Ragnarok is located in the Viking Vessel, which is just west of Holly Hedges. Slip him some gold and he will reveal the location of some treasure chests.

  • Hire a Character (0/1)

One of the cool features of Chapter 2 Season 5 is the ability to “hire” a NPC to join your team. Our favorite NPC to hire is Longshot. He’s conveniently located in the mountains West of Misty Meadows.
