Players looking to complete the Week 5 challenges of Fortnite Season 8 will have to use various mobility items on the map – here’s how to complete this somewhat confusing task.

The fifth batch of weekly challenges, released on March 28, require players to use different forms of travel in the same match in order to gain their battle stars.

Players will need to use the volcano vents that were added in the Season 8 release as well as a zip line and one of the many vehicles that can be found scattered around the map.

Use a volcano vent

The recently added volcano vents propel players into the air before allowing them to glide to a new location similar to a rift or launchpad.

Therefore, it makes sense to hit a vent first before travelling to complete the rest of the challenge. Vents are extremely common in the north side of the map near Sunny Steps so that’s where you’ll want to head before moving your character over the tunnel of air.

EPIC GAMESVolcano vents are more common in the north side of the map near Sunny Steps and Lazy Lagoon.

Use a Zipline

After hitting the volcano vent, travel towards the east side of the map towards Lonely Lodge where you will find a host of ziplines in the jungle.

Simply walk up to zipline and hold the interact key to jump on and travel to the other side. The best strategy would be to use a zip line that ends at an expedition outpost where you will be able to finish the challenge.

EPIC GAMESPlayers no longer take fall damage when leaving a zip line so don’t be afraid to jump if necessary.

Use a vehicle

There are plenty of vehicles scattered around the map but the newest addition, The Baller, will give you the best chance of completing the challenge using our strategy.

EPIC GAMESThe Baller is commonly found on charging points at the expedition outposts on the map

After ziplining up to an expedition outpost, the balls regularly spawn on the charging points outside the main building. Simply hop in and you will receive your battle stars. Afterwards, you can start checking off the remainder of your Week 5, Season 8 challenges.

Step-by-step guide to complete the ‘use volcano vent, zip line and vehicle in one game’ challenge

  1. Jump out the battlebus near the peak of the volcano and locate a vent
  2. Use the vent to propel yourself in the air towards a zip line
  3. Hop onto the zip line heading towards the expedition outpost situated on the hill above Lonely Lodge
  4. Use the Baller vehicle that spawns on the charging point outside the red metal building
  5. Ensure all steps are completed in one single match to complete the challenge

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

Galactus Fortnite event leaks

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
