Epic Games has released Fortnite chapter 2, season 2 after months waiting. The long-anticipated season has already shifted the game significantly, changing up the map, adding helicopters, and offering a limited-edition Deadpool skin for players to unlock. Even the normal weekly missions changed this season in a major way.
Themed Fortnite season 2 challenges
Similar to the missions from season X, the season 2 challenges are themed around something new every two weeks. Fitting into the spy theme that is at the heart of this season, there are five bosses who are both on the island to fight and leading the weekly tasks.
Every two weeks, battle royale will shift to focusing on another boss who is also a skin you can get in the season 2 battle pass. Completing nearly all of the challenges that a particular boss has will give you the chance to change that skin.
This guide is going to list all of the missions throughout this season and guides for how to do them, starting with season 5 and updated weekly as the new objectives arrive in the game. You can find the previous weeks below.
- Week 1: Visit Mount Kay, Apres ski, and the lighthouse
- Week 2: Find Shadow safe houses
- Week 3: Land at the Rig, Logjam Woodworks, Hydro 16
- Week 4: Grumpy Greens, Mowdown
Fortnite week 5 challenges
Week 5 is the start of a new boss cycle with the kitty secret agent Meowscles. This fan favorite spy is giving the missions for the next couple of weeks, leading up to his skin variant. You can find all of the week 5 objectives below:
- Search for three treasure chests at Misty Meadows or Salty Springs
- Eliminate five players with assault rifles from at least 50 meters away
- Consume fish to gain 400 health or shields
- Deal 200 damage to players while using the creeping cardboard item
- Survive a fall from at least five stories high nine different times
- Deal 100 damage to henchmen with pickaxes only
- Visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site in a single match without swimming
- Kick a soccer ball 100 meters
- Deal 400 damage to players with miniguns
- Visit Shipwreck Cove, Yacht, and Flopper Pond
The 10 tasks this week are surprisingly difficult, really making players work for the rewards. One of the most challenging missions is to visit three different locations all in the same match without swimming.
Three landmarks mission tips
For this challenge, players need to visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site — three landmark locations on the map. The twist with this particular mission is that this is hard mode, so you will need to visit all three in a single match to complete it. In addition, you can’t swim at all in the process or your progress won’t count.
With such an insanely difficult task, there are some tips that can help you do it. First and foremost, we highly recommend, even more than usual, that you do this in the Team Rumble game mode. It has more time, fewer enemies, and, most importantly, respawns. Even if you die trying to visit all three, you can keep going when you respawn.
Lastly, you are going to need a vehicle for this challenge or a lot of materials. All three locations are on islands, and the catch is that you can’t swim. Your best bet is to find a motorboat or helicopter first, so you don’t end up accidentally swimming. You can use materials to climb over the water, if necessary, but this is a last-resort option as it will take much longer.
Week 5 landmark locations
You can find the location of the three landmarks above along with detailed descriptions of their locations below. The following progression is the order we recommend you go in. This is because it is a natural progression that doesn’t require backtracking or anything else that would waste time in this highly time-sensitive task.
Crash Site is on the large island west of Pleasant Park and north of Sweaty Sands in the C2 square on the map. Here, you will find a large plane crash site.
Coral Cove is the second destination you should head to after the Crash Site. It’s on an island northwest of Sweaty Sands and southwest of the Shark. It is the island in the A2 square, directly west of the previous one.
Stack Shack is on an island slightly northwest of Holly Hedges. It is in the A4 square and is the last in a string of tiny islands. There is a dilapidated shack alone on this island.
Week 5 challenge rewards
Completing this mission will grant 40,000 experience points, which is the same for all week 5 objectives.
Week 6 challenges
The sixth week of Fortnite missions include 10 new tasks for players to complete. They are mostly minor variations on the standard tasks that released this season, but one of them is particularly difficult.
You can find the full list of all 10 new objectives this week below.
- Search for 10 treasure chests at Frenzy Farm or Steamy Stacks
- Deal 1,000 damage to players using only assault rifles
- Open a treasure chest within 10 seconds after landing from the battle bus
- Deal 200 damage to players while riding in the new Choppa vehicle
- Catch a weapon, a can, and a fish
- Eliminate five players at the Yacht or Salty Springs
- Destroy three dog houses
- Block 100 damage with a decoy grenade
- Dance at Lake Canoe, Camp Cod, and Rainbow Rentals
- Ride the air at Steamy Stacks, use a zipline, and go through a secret passage all in the same match
Like with earlier weeks in season 2, there is a major task that requires you to visit three landmark locations that aren’t easy to find. In the case of week six, that challenge is to dance at Lake Canoe, Camp Cod, and Rainbow Rentals.
Dancing challenge tips
Before we jump into the locations of the three dance spots, there are some tips that you should keep in mind. Like always, this is a mission that benefits best from completing in Team Rumble. You get the max amount of time to use toward finding all three locations and dancing at them.
One of the key points here is that you must dance at these locations. Just visiting them or landing at them like in similar missions in season 2 won’t do here, so be sure to grab your favorite dance or emote beforehand. Keep in mind that you don’t have to do all of them in the same match, so feel free to take your time if you need to.
But if you do want to get them over with as fast as possible, be sure to grab one of the new Choppa helicopters around the map. This will help you get to the three spots much faster and easier as they are spread throughout the battle royale island.
You can find all three general locations on the map above. In addition, details about the specific locations of them and where you need to be are found below.
Lake Canoe location
Lake Canoe is a small lake north of Retail Row in the G5 square on the grid-based map. There are several canoes scattered around here, and all you need to do is dance while at the lake.
Camp Cod is a small town landmark in the southeastern corner of the map, south of the snowy mountain range and southeast of Misty Meadows. It is in the G8 square.
Rainbow Rentals is a string of colorful houses on the beach southwest of Holly Hedges. They are in the A6 square.
Week 6 challenge reward
As always, the reward for completing the dance mission in week six is the same as other weeks. You will get 40,000 experience toward the season 2 battle pass.
Week 7 challenges
In week 7 of season 2, Epic Games released the Skye’s Adventure missions for players to complete. For two weeks in a row, Skye became the penultimate character to have the spotlight as challenge host. As with every week prior to it, there were 10 new tasks to complete. You can find all of them below.
- Search for seven treasure chests at spy bases
- Deal 400 damage to players with either SMGs or pistols
- Mark an uncommon, rare, and epic item
- Collect 75 of all three material types within 60 seconds of landing from the battle bus at the start of a match
- Hide in a cardboard box at the box factory
- Consume 10 foraged items at Weeping Woods or the Orchard
- Visit the Shark, Rapid’s Rest, and Gorgeous Gorge
- Escape a vault using a secret passage
- Visit three of Skye’s coastal campsites
- Pull another player or henchmen toward you with a harpoon gun
Skye has some very interesting objectives for players to complete in week 7. One of the most important tasks is visiting the Shark, Rapid’s Rest, and Gorgeous Gorge. For week 7, we will show you where to find all of these locations on the battle royale island.
Week 7 challenge tips
Before we jump into the locations of these three spots on the island, there are some tips that you should keep in mind for making this task easier. First and foremost, you don’t have to visit all three places in the same match. Some of them are far from one another, so it is understandable if you want to focus on one at a time.
However, if you do want to complete this as fast as possible, we recommend you grab one of the Choppa vehicles around the map as this will save you a lot of time and let you easily get to all three locations.
Like usual, we also suggest the Team Rumble game mode for this mission as it allows for more time, fewer enemies, and respawns in case you stumble upon a foe.
Week 7 challenge locations
Check our map screenshot above for the general spots of all three locations. For detailed descriptions of where to find them, check out each individual spot below.
Easily the easiest of the three spots we need to visit this week, the Shark is one of the new named locations in season 2. But if you don’t know where to find it, check the map and look in the northwestern corner of the island. It is a small shark-shaped island in the B1 square on the grid.
Rapid’s Rest is much harder to find since it is an unnamed landmark. It is on the eastern outskirts of Lazy Lake near the river where you’ll find a car. Find it on the edge of the F6 and G6 squares.
This landmark is actually close to Rapid’s Rest. Head northwest of Lazy Lake along the river until you reach the waterfall. The area near here and below the waterfall is Gorgeous Gorge.
