Fortnite fans will undoubtedly launch 2019 on their right foot by securing a healthy help from Battle Stars, and it just happens to be another series of challenges now available to them to complete. We are in week 5 in season 7 now, so you should know how this goes, but if you are new to it all, it's a fast breakdown.
Challenges come in two variants, with the first free of all playing Fortnite match royal mode, and the other available exclusively to those who use V-Bucks to get a premium Battle Pass. By completing the challenges you will be rewarded with Battle Stars, which in turn upgrades the Battle Pass and makes cosmetic locks available. If you have a premium pass, you get the opportunity to make more challenges and thus you can earn more Battle Stars and get new locks faster.
In the free category, Week 5 involves challenges to deal with the damage to the opponent's structures, eliminating an enemy player from a certain distance, and completing a multi-step challenge that begins with dancing on top of a water tower.
For those with a premium Battle Pass, you need to search for a place that exists between a giant mountaineer, a crowned tomato and a surrounded tree. It is also a challenge that asks you to get three eliminations with a stolen weapon, along with another that requires you to search for coffins in Wailing Woods and Paradise Palms. The last challenge in this section is another multi-storey that is activated upon landing at Polar Peak. Take a look at the full list of challenges below.
- Phase 1: Land at Polar Peak (1) – 1 Battle Stars
- Deal damage to the opponent's structures (5000) – 5 Battle Star
- Suppressed weapon elimination (3 ) – 10 Battle Stars
- Stage 1: Dance at the top of a water tower (1) – 1 Battle Stars

Fortnite developer Epic Games launched a new update for the game on January 2. Along with various tweaks, it introduced the Boom Box, which is an element that makes significant damage to built structures. This item is very convenient for removing barriers between you and any enemies you can give. If you are on the receiving end of its devastating power, you can counter this by shooting the Boom Box. Check out the entire Fortnite patch 7.10.2 patch notes for more on the item and the other changes and tweaks.
