The seven weekly challenges for Epic Games’ massively popular Fortnite Battle Royale have finally gone live for Season 4, Week 5.

While Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free to play for anyone that wants to play it, a “Battle Pass” can be purchased for 950 V-Bucks (approximately $10) which opens up the opportunity to earn various cosmetics and cool items.

Each week of Season 4, a list of new challenges go live for Battle Pass owners to try and complete. Doing so is the fastest way to earn experience points, unlock new items, and rank up to Tier 100.

After the surprising decision to move the release of new challenges back to Thursdays, May 31st marked the end of what seemed to be a never-ending wait as the Season 4, Week 5 challenges finally went live.

The tasks range from dealing damage with SMGs and searching Chests in Dusty Divot all the way to dancing with others “to raise the Disco Ball near Loot Lake”.

The two “HARD” challenges earn you twice as much XP as the five easier ones, but none of them should be too difficult to complete if you put the time in.

Keep an eye out for our various Challenge Guides which will help you complete them quickly and earn yourself some cool new items!

The full list of Challenges for Week 5, Season 4, are as follows:

  • Deal damage with SMGs to opponents (500)
  • Search chests in Dusty Divot (7)
  • Use a Vending Machinee (1)
  • Dance with others to raise the Disco Ball near Loot Lake (1)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Greasy Grove (1) [HARD]
  • Minigun or Light Machine Gun Eliminations (2)
  • Eliminate opponents in Lucky Landing (3) [HARD]

Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
