For Week 5 of Season 5, Fortnite Battle Pass players will need to search for chests in Junk Junction, so we’ve put together a quick map to show you all their locations.

Junk Junction is one of the smaller named locations in Fortnite, so there isn’t a lot of ground to cover thankfully, meaning finding all seven of the required chests should be straightforward enough.

Thanks to the handy Fortnite Chests website, the locations of all the chests in Junk Junction are readily available.

Of course, not all these chest spawns will be there every single match, so it may be necessary to make multiple trips, in order to snag seven needed for the challenge.

The challenge doesn’t require you find all the chests in a single match, so simply head to Junk Junction a few games in a row and you should have the challenge done in no time.

You’ll need to be wary of other challengers though, and Junk Junction will become a more traffic-heavy location for this week.

As long as you land at Junk Junction right off the start of the game, and are capable of fighting off other opponents, it shouldn’t take too long to open seven chests.

You do need to play the match out to completion though, so either get eliminated or try to win the match. If you drop out of the game early, it may not count towards your progression of the challenge.

This challenge is not classed as hard so you’ll only get the standard XP reward. There are three hard challenges each week which will reward you with double XP, which you can find here.

If you’ve been jumping into Fortnite Season 5 since the new update rolled around, there’s a good chance you’ve been hit with an infinite loading screen bug. Epic Games is already aware of the critical issue though, so here’s what you need to know.

On the back of a Marvel-centric season that concluded with the biggest in-game event to date, Fortnite Season 5 is finally upon us. Whether you’re checking out the newly revamped map, trying to unlock some Star Wars skins in the Battle Pass, or simply going hands-on with some new weapons, there’s plenty to see and do.

The beginning of a new season always sees a huge spike in interest. Veteran players are often drawn back to the title while newcomers jump in for the very first time. However, there’s a game-breaking bug in the latest update that could just turn you away.

Randomly between games, players have reported what seem to be endless loading screens. You can get caught in the never-ending state, requiring you to reboot the game and start from scratch.

If you’ve noticed some extremely long load times in Season 5, you’re not alone.

“There is a bug where it stays on the loading screen forever and you have to restart Fortnite,” Reddit user ‘SirCrazyLionYT’ revealed. “This happens too many times to count.” Without warning, you could be trapped in a loading screen for a few minutes before realizing the issue.

For now, the problem only seems to occur on console. So if you’re playing on Xbox or PlayStation, you’ll need to be cautious moving forward. Many players have chimed in on the topic, however, having encountered the same frustrating bug.

Given just how common infinite loading screens are in Season 5, Epic is already on the case. “We’re investigating an issue that is causing players to experience long load times after completing a match on PlayStation and Xbox consoles,” the Fortnite Status account shared on December 2. 

In fact, it’s currently the top priority on Fortnite’s official Trello board. There’s no ETA just yet, but these types of bugs are usually dealt with rather quickly. Especially with more people dropping into Fortnite than usual, expect to see loading screens back to normal very soon.

While there’s no workaround for console players just yet, keep your eyes peeled as you transition in and out of games. It could trap you before a match starts, or it could strike after a successful run. There’s no way to prevent it at this point in time.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated as a hotfix is deployed to counter the game-breaking bug. In the meantime, your Fortnite session on console might just have you heading to the dashboard a handful of times.
