Fortnite Season 5 Week 12 Challenges Guide
Epic Games has released some new challenges for players to do in Fortnite battle royale that continue the current fifth season of content. Since the season is not yet over, we now have the Fortnite Week 12 challenges for players to complete for extra experience rewards.
Season 5 Continues With Fortnite Week 12 Challenges
As you likely already know at this point, the current Season 5 in Fortnite battle royale is still ongoing for the foreseeable future. You might think that the season would be ending sometime soon (and it might be), but Epic Games has done nothing at all to make it clear.
Instead, we have had, for the first time, normal battle royale missions that are continuing past the 10th week that aren’t considered overtime ones or part of some special event. Yes, we have normal Fortnite Week 12 challenges for the first time. It looks like they aren’t the last ones either.
It looks like we may be getting even more extra Fortnite quests this season before the end of everything if the leaks are to be believed. But for now, we have the Fortnite Week 12 challenges listed below for you to check out so that you know what is new this week:
- Deal 200 damage within 15 seconds of gliding
- Visit the Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay landmark locations
- Destroy three inflatable tube men llamas at gas stations
- Find a family portrait from a shipwreck
- Throw a fish back into the water
- Hit three different opponents with a harpoon gun
- Catch three different weapon types from fishing spots
- Legendary quest Week 12: Hit opponents within 10 seconds of using the Zero Point teleport dash (five-part, multi-stage quest)
As you can see, this week follows up from the previous extra Week 11 challenges last week by having a pretty standard set of Fortnite Week 12 challenges to complete. There are seven normal ones for players to do and then an extra legendary quest you can complete.
Overall, it is a pretty normal set of weekly missions. There isn’t anything too amazing here, neither are there any real themes to this week, except maybe some fish stuff. It isn’t the best we’ve seen this season, but it isn’t the worst, either. Here is how to complete all of the Fortnite Week 12 challenges.
Where to Visit Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay
Kicking off the Fortnite Week 12 challenges is the first to deal 200 damage with 15 seconds of gliding. As you know, the only significant time that you can glide in most normal battle royale matches is by hopping out of the battle bus at the very beginning.
This makes this particular mission pretty hard to complete since it requires you to deal some damage within 15 seconds of stopping your gliding. That isn’t a lot of time to deal some damage, especially the case at the beginning of a normal battle royale match.
You need to be able to find some actual weapons and gear to use to deal that damage unless you resort to your pickaxe, and then you have to survive long enough to deal it and find someone before the 15 seconds are up.
The one good thing about this quest is that you don’t have to deal all 200 damage at the same time, so you could deal some, pick it up again in the next match, and continue until you’ve done 200 damage. But our recommendation is to do this in Team Rumble since that mode lets you glide again so long as you can get air and if you respawn, so getting 200 damage is possible in one match.
The second mission that we have to do this week is to visit three particular landmark locations known as Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay. You don’t have to do this in the same match, but you need to visit all three of them.
For Scenic Spot, this location is the northernmost of these three locations and northeast of Colossal Coliseum, just southwest of Steamy Stacks. It is also directly east, right next to The Orchard, if you know that landmark location well and on the river’s northern side running along here.
For the next spot of Gorgeous Gorge, you need to head to the waterfall-like area along the river directly northeast of Hunter’s Haven and northwest of Lazy Lake. It is a pretty well-known location that we have visited in a challenge like this before.
Another familiar landmark spot is the last one: Mount Kay. This is known as the tallest mountain and point on the island to date. It is south of the named location Catty Corner and is the top peak of the snowy mountain area that is right here. Visit all three in whatever order you want and in however matches you need.
Where to Find the Family Portrait From a Shipwreck
For the third mission this week, you need to destroy three inflatable tubemen llamas at various gas stations around the island. This one is pretty self-explanatory: find the llamas blown up at gas stations around the island and then destroy three of them in total.
But to do this mission, you need to visit some gas stations first. If you find yourself a car on the island, this will be easy as the car will then designate the gas stations on your map so that you can visit them and fill up your gas tank quickly.
Alternatively, some pretty well-known gas stations can easily access near some named locations that you can visit. There is the gas station that is east of Colossal Coliseum across the river, the stations at Sweaty Sands, the one across the bridge east of Pleasant Park, and the one west of Misty Meadows. There are others, too, but those are the notable ones.
For the following mission, you need to find a family portrait at the shipwreck. It just so happens that this quest has two different locations that you can visit, but you only need to find one portrait at one of them, so you don’t have to visit both of them in the same match.
The first spot is found directly west of Sweaty Sands and happens to be right on the coast here, where you can find this shipwreck. The other one is found southwest of Catty Corner and is a bit harder to reach as it is on the other side of the snowy mountain range alongside the coast here.
Either location will work, but we personally like the one near Sweaty Sands as it is easier to reach. But both will work. They each have multiple family portraits that you can find around the shipwrecks here to interact with to pick them up and complete this quest, so watch out for other eager players looking for portraits.
How to Throw a Fish Back Into the Water
For the following challenge, players need to find a fish and then throw it back into the water, and that is it here. First and foremost, you need to find yourself some fish if you are looking to get this task done.
For this part, you likely already know what to do if you have fished in the game before. If not, the general idea is to find a large body of water or river near a notable point, like a named location or landmark. Some good spots to head to are Weeping Woods, Sweaty Sands, and so on.
Once you are there, you’ll need a fishing rod or shoot the fish out of the water. Once you have a fish out of the water, pick it up to add it to your inventory. Then you need to throw it into the water, which involves holding it in your hands, then aiming it, and throwing it into the water. On a controller, that would be holding down the left trigger.
After that, the next quest is to hit three different opponents in matches with a harpoon gun. It involves picking up a harpoon gun, so your best bet is to head to a treasure chest and open those up as they are how I’ve best found the harpoon guns in the past.
Once you have the harpoon gun, this is where the real fun begins. If you don’t know this weapon well, shooting it will pull whatever it hits to you. This could be a gun on the ground, your teammate, or even an enemy player so that you can surprise and finish them off.
In this case, you need to make sure to hit three enemies with the harpoon gun. This doesn’t have to be done in a single match, so be sure to take your time with it and aim to get one enemy with the harpoon gun per match that you are in.
This Week’s Legendary Quest
The final normal quest this week involves having to catch three different types of weapons from fishing spots. It will require you, the player, to go to more fishing spots yet again, so feel free to use the same old locations you used in one of the previous challenges.
But this time around, we are not looking for fish as we were before. As you may already know, you can get more than just fish when trying to fish. You can get loot like various weapon types. For this challenge, that is what you need to focus on.
You are going to need to find three different types of weapons from just fishing around in Fortnite. For this purpose, we do highly recommend the Team Rumble game mode for this one. When you fish, you aren’t guaranteed to get a weapon, so you may need to take your time with this one.
Team Rumble will offer you that time and respawns to ensure that you can fish around while everyone else is fighting and doing all of that stuff. Your goal is not just to find one weapon but also three different types for this particular mission.
This means that you need to find three different weapons and not just three assault rifles. It could be a mix of weapons like a pistol, a shotgun, a sniper rifle, for example, and so on. This is another mission where you don’t have to do it all in one match, either, but you could if you dedicated all your time in a match to fishing.
And last but not least, this week, we come to the legendary quest that will only be here for the week and then will disappear. This week, the quest is to hit opponents within 10 seconds of using the Zero Point teleport dashing mechanic in the game.
Four players is recommended since it increases the number with every stage of the challenge. There are five of the stages in total. To get this started, you need to be able to Zero Point teleport. To do that, head to the location where it is found near the middle of the island.
When you get there, consume the little floating diamond-like rocks around this area. It will let you be able to teleport for a little while. To activate the teleport, you need to double-tap the jump button to do it. Then, you need to hit opponents within 10 seconds of doing this dash for the mission itself.
Again, the number will increase with every single stage that you complete, but your team’s progress will count as well, so do it together. There are likely to be many players near this central area of the map due to this quest, so it should be easy to do but be careful.
