Fortnite Season 5 Week 2 Challenges: Plant Evidence, Flaming Rings
Another week, another set of challenges for players to complete in Fortnite battle royale. This week, Epic Games has released the Fortnite Season 5 Week 2 challenges for the community. This batch of challenges is pretty intense and challenging but also really fun.
Fortnite Season 5 Challenges Explained
Before we jump into the missions this week, we have had time now that we are in the second week of the season to figure out the whole challenges system this time around. As you may already know, the missions are difficult to find in the game as they are jumbled together.
Sure, you can find a list of them, but it is hard to know which are for specific skins like The Mandalorian’s Beskar Armor skin style and which are for the actual normal weekly challenges. Everything is a mess this season in terms of organization that it is hard to differentiate between everything.
That said, we have been able to figure out the general idea of what Epic Games is trying to do this season with missions, or quests, as many of them are known. We do the usual challenges known as the epic ones, while there is one legendary mission every so often.
The first seven missions are the normal ones that you would see every season, while the eighth one is legendary, timed for only a limited time. That means you could easily miss out on this quest if you wait too long to complete its objectives.
Simultaneously, the other epic challenges are what you know and love from past seasons, so they will remain in the game for the duration of the fifth season until it ends. So, keep in mind that the legendary quest is a bit of a time-sensitive issue that needs to be finished quickly for its rewards.
Speaking of rewards, the general challenges that we have will only give you 22,000 experience for each one of them. But the legendary quest will provide you with 55,000 experience, which is more than double a normal mission and is well worth it for getting ever-closer to tier 100 and Baby Yoda.
Fortnite Season 5 Week 2 Challenges List
When it comes to the Fortnite Season 5 Week 2 challenges, there are eight in total: one legendary and seven epic missions. Each of them is varied in difficulty and objective, not following much of the trends we saw in the last couple of seasons with the same old missions every week.
Instead, Epic Games has switched things up this time around. You can find the full list of the eight missions this week below:
- Destroy five mailboxes
- Destroy three dog houses
- Drive a vehicle from Steamy Stacks to Pleasant Park
- Drive through flaming rings
- Find three car parts
- Find the three clues in Pleasant Park, Holly Hedges, and Lazy Lake
- Plant the evidence three times in Catty Corner or Flush Factory
- Deal damage with legendary weapons (legendary quest with five parts)
As you can see, these aren’t the standard “open these chests” “eliminate these players” missions that we got in past seasons. Instead, Epic has opted to have more varied and exciting objectives that will keep us interested and have fun while earning some sweet XP.
Here is your reminder that the final quest on the list is the legendary one and will only be available for likely a few days or a week or so. After that, something else will show up. If you are reading these challenges after Week 2, chances are that it is already gone.
But the other Fortnite Season 5 Week 2 challenges will remain. Here is how to complete all of them.
How to Destroy Mailboxes and Dog Houses
First up, we have a couple of Fortnite Season 5 Week 2 challenges that are all about destroying someone else’s property, which we do not condone, but Epic is promoting it in Fortnite this week. You need to destroy five mailboxes on the island, and it doesn’t matter where.
Mailboxes are pretty self-explanatory: the little boxes at the front of houses and businesses where mail is put. You probably know what they look like, so all you need to do is destroy five of them. But there are some places that we recommend you visit to get this done quickly.
The major towns where there are residential areas and lots of houses around are your best bets for doing this task. Pleasant Park, Retail Row, Holly Hedges, and some others will be the hotspots for this task. Check the front of the houses and destroy these mailboxes with either your pickaxe or gun.
You could easily do that mission in one match, and you can also do the next one in one match easily. The second challenge this week is to destroy three dog houses. These are in the backyard of larger houses on the island, but the same general rules apply here as with the mailboxes.
The same general named locations are recommended, including Pleasant Park, Holly Hedges, and Retail Row. They are your best spots for finding dog houses behind the homes there. You only need three of these as they are likely a bit harder to find, so destroy any that you see with a pickaxe or gun.
How to Drive Through Flaming Rings
Next up is a fan favorite Fortnite challenge that we have not had in a very long time, and that is to drive through a flaming ring. Pick the flaming ring of your choosing and drive through it to complete this simple mission that harkens back to the challenge glory days of Chapter 1.
Before we hop into the flaming rings that you need to find this week, you will need a ride to drive through them. You can’t just run through them. We don’t recommend that you fly or pilot your boat through it as some of them can be challenging, so you will need a car of some kind.
It could be a truck, sports car, taxi, and so on, but we recommend something fast to ensure that you have no issue driving through the flaming ring. Once you have a vehicle, you will need to head north of Pleasant Park and east of Stealthy Stronghold to find three rings here.
You may not need all three for this mission, but even if you do, they are all right next to one another, so this task is simple enough. Given these rings’ location, it might be best to try and pick up a car at Pleasant Park or another nearby area on the island to save time.
Once you have your car of choice, drive it up the ramp of one of the flaming rings and through the ring itself to complete this mission. After that, the following challenge is another driving challenge that could tie into the one that we just did if you’d like to kill two birds with one stone, or car, in this case.
You need to drive a car from Steamy Stacks to Pleasant Park. This one will take a bit of time but is pretty straightforward. You need to grab a car and drive it to Steamy Stacks, then to Pleasant Park, all in the same match. You may find a vehicle at Steamy Stacks but not guaranteed.
As such, we recommend that you try to find one nearby, drive to Steamy Stacks to activate the challenge, and then go to Pleasant Park to complete it. From there, you could quickly go north and then drive your car through the flaming rings but make sure to gas up ahead of time as this will be a lengthy journey. You may want to do this in Team Rumble to have more time.
How to Find Clues and Car Parts
Next up is to find three car parts in total. This part is a bit weird and may be confusing to players since we aren’t used to seeing car parts in Fortnite. Sure, there are plenty of cars, but what are the parts? We’ll go ahead and let you know that they are not just materials from destroying cars in the game.
You can find specific items on the island in certain places and are not to be confused with anything else. Fortunately, there is one location that has three of them ready for you. There are probably other places that you can find parts, but this one is great for quick completion.
Head to the unnamed landmark on the map known as Compact Cars. This junkyard is west of Dirty Docks and next to the main river here. When you visit this junkyard, you will find the car parts lying around the plain sight location.
To get the third and final one, head on over to Dirty Docks next door. When you get there, you need to head to the southern end of the docks and find the huge blue metal container here and destroy it to find the third and final car part that you need for this mission.
The next mission is about finding three clues in Pleasant Park, Holly Hedges, and Lazy Lake. There is one clue per location that you visit, so you have to make sure to visit all three of the spots that we will go over.
First up is Pleasant Park that is quite popular this week in the missions and to the house in the central part of the left street. It is directly west of the field facing it. Head inside and go upstairs. Find some paintings on the wall to the left. Approach them to receive clue one.
Clue two is at Holly Hedges at the house in the southwestern corner of the named location. Inside of this house is a room that has a bunch of weird stuff like gold items and another painting. This is your second clue, so make sure you see the notification for it pop up.
And last but not least, we need to go to Lazy Lake. When you arrive, head to one of the northernmost houses in the town. Go to the bottom of the house to find the last painting and clue that we need for this mission.
How to Plant the Evidence in Catty Corner or Flush Factory
The last of the epic quests this week is to plant the three evidence items in Catty Corner or Flush Factory. First and foremost, Flush Factory is back in the game and can be found basically in the same general area where it once was in the first chapter of Fortnite.
It is somewhat southeast of Slurpy Swamp on the edge of the island. You can visit it or Catty Corner for this mission. Both have three items of evidence, so it doesn’t matter which you go to. If you head to Flush Factory, you will find the three items in different spots.
One of them is by the northern entrance, a second is by the southernmost building, and the third is on the west side by the water. Interact with the circles in these locations to plant the evidence. For those of you who head to Catty Corner, there are three circles here as well.
One is found near the northern entrance to the eastern building, while the second one is outside the same building’s western side. The third and final one is on the other side of the road by the building found here near the southern wall.
And last but not least, this week, we have the legendary quest that is fleeting so take advantage of it while you can. This is recommended for four players. It is to deal varying amounts of damage with legendary weapons. Typically, this would be hard on its own, but it is amped up with the legendary part.
You aren’t going to make progress if you don’t have one of these shiny weapons, so look in as many chests and supply crates as you can. The first step is to get 1500 damage with a legendary weapon, then it goes up to 3000, then to 4500, then 6000, and finally 7500.
This won’t be easy to do on your own and would likely take many matches to complete, depending on your legendary luck. We highly recommend that you try to do this with some friends together in the Team Rumble mode, where you can find a legendary weapon and hold onto it for a while to deal damage.
