Many people thought they would never see the day when FaZe Clan’s professional Fortnite player Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney would purchase a skin again from the in-game store.

Incredibly, that day has finally come, as Tfue purchased the ‘Bullseye’ character on Tuesday, November 6.

Tenney posted a tweet earlier on in the day, stating that if his tweet got 100,000 Retweets, he would buy a skin live on stream.

Unsurprisingly, the tweet immediately blew up, quickly receiving the required number of Retweets, meaning the FaZe Clan star was forced to live up to his word.

The pro Fortnite player hilariously put some dramatic music on in the background, as he navigated his way through the menus to the buy shop. “You might ask yourself, what does this skin even mean if I have so many skins?” pondered Tfue, as he clicked on the buy button.

Tenney then pretended to become emotional, as he faced the reality of knowing that he had purchased a skin on Fortnite. “They ruined my perfectly good account. It doesn’t even matter anymore man,” cried Tfue, as he rubbed the imaginary tears from his eyes.

To see Tfue buying a skin came as a shock for some fans, as the FaZe star has become well known for using the ‘Jonesy’ character. 

The pro Fortnite player had vowed never to purchase another skin after his first account which had over $5000 worth of skins on it was banned back in the summer, but it seems Retweets were enough to convince him to change his mind. 

Tenney was forced to wear a different skin during the Fall Skirmish finals at TwitchCon back in October, but it didn’t seem to affect him too badly there, as he went to win the tournament and a massive $255,000.

Tfue has become synonymous with the Jonesy skin.

How to complete Quests in Fortnite Season 5: Challenges & rewards

With Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5, challenges are seemingly no more, at least in the form that they’ve taken for a while. Now, players are able to complete quests, which operate in a similar way but are a bit different nonetheless. Here’s what you need to know about them.

For a while now, players in Fortnite have been completing challenges in order to help level up their battle pass. These challenges tasked players with completing certain objectives around the map and, in return, they are given rewards, mostly XP. It ended up being one of the main ways players could grind up their battle pass tiers and overall level.

Now, with the start of Season 5 in Chapter 2, challenges are gone, at least in the form they once took. Now, players will have to complete Quests in order to level up their battle pass. But how do you complete them and what are the actual requirements? Here’s what you need to know.

What are Quests in Fortnite Season 5?

Quests can be found in its own menu on the left-side of the screen.

Jumping into Fortnite Season 5, one might be a bit confused as to what Quests are and why they’ve replaced challenges. While don’t know for sure why exactly they’ve taken the place of the latter, you can rest assured that they operate almost identically to the old format.

In Fortnite’s main menu, you should see a button to press on the left side labeled Quests. Clicking it will bring up the map and all your Quests, similar to how it’s been in previous seasons. That being said, these new “challenges” are a bit more narrative-focused, having quotes alongside them.

Chapter 2 Season 5 Quests list

Epic Games
Fortnite Quests are similar to challenges from previous seasons.

Quests are split up into different rarities. Everyone seems to have the two same Legendary Quests, alongside some rare and uncommon quests that are different from player to player. Once a quest is done, a new one pops up in its place, which presumably will keep happening until you’ve gone through every single challenge.

That being said, for the two Quests that everyone does have, here’s what you need to complete:

  • Mandalorian Bounties: Complete Bounties
  • Legendary Quests 1: Four Stages
    • Stage 1: Shotgun Eliminations
    • Stage 2: Assault Rifle Damage
    • Stage 3: Sniper Rifle Elimination from 150m
    • Stage 4: Deal Explosive damage to structures
  • Legendary Quests 2: Three Stages
    • Stage 1: Discover Named Locations
    • Stage 2: Talk to a character
    • Stage 3: Collect bars

New Quests should be available every week as the season goes on, much like the challenges of old. We’ll be updating this piece with new objectives as they become available.

All in all, it seems like Quests are a more refined version of challenges; gone is the long list of tasks and now we have a more organized experience. Here’s hoping that Epic continues with this style in the future.
