Fortnite Chapter 2‘s The Lowdown Mission challenges have been leaked for Season 1, Week 5 and if you would like to know how to complete them, you’ve came to the right place. 

A brand new set of challenges are available to grind through in the popular battle royale game, after being released on November 8. 

The list was previously leaked by data miner Lucas7yoshi, meaning that players were able to get an early idea of what they’re going to have to do for Week 5. This wasn’t the only list to have been discovered by leakers, either, as a fresh set of Hide and Seek tasks have also been revealed. 

Epic GamesHealing other players is going to be a part of this new mission.

Let’s forget about those for a moment, though, as you’re obviously here to see the brand new mission and what it has in store for Week 5 of Season 1. The full list can be found below.

Fortnite The Lowdown challenge guides

The final challenge in that list will be a familiar sight for seasoned veterans of Fortnite, as hidden banners and battle stars have been replaced in Chapter 2 with these hidden letters. In Week 5, you’re going to need to find the letter ‘N’. 

We’ve already put together some simple instructions on where to find it as well, which can be found in our helpful Fortnite hidden ‘N’ location guide. 

If you’re wondering where these E.G.O. outposts are as well, check out our location guide for that one as well. You’ll have them all found in no time. 

Epic GamesThe challenges will unlock periodically in Fortnite, so keep tabs on the challenge menu.

Should there be even more guides produced for these challenges, we’ll be the first to let you know. 

With that being said, many of this week’s tasks do look fairly simple – including assisting teammates with eliminations, healing other players at specific locations and so on. Good luck!


Fortnite Crew explained: Battle Pass skin packs, V-Bucks, price & more

Starting with Chapter 2 Season 5, Fortnite will have a brand new subscription service titled Fortnite Crew, which aims to bring a slew of different features that players love, wrapped up into one nice little package. Here’s everything you need to know. 

Season 4 of Fortnite is rapidly coming to an end. The Marvel-themed season has been around for a few months now and in December it will be replaced by Season 5. While we don’t know the full extent of the new season, we do know that it’s set to introduce a brand new service called Fortnite Crew.

This subscription-based model, which is a first for Fortnite, is set to introduce a brand new way to get the battle pass each season, while at the same time earning some free goodies to sink your teeth into. But how does it work, how much does it cost, and what does it include? Here’s the breakdown.

Fortnite Crew contents

The most attractive inclusion in this new subscription service is that of the battle pass. Each month, you’ll get the premium version of the battle pass at no extra cost to you, so long as you’re subscribed to Fortnite Crew.

Beyond that, however, you’ll also receive a number of different items beyond the premium battle pass. You’ll also receive 1000 v-bucks and an exclusive Fortnite Crew Pack, which in-and-of-itself includes a skin and a “matching accessory”.

Fortnite Crew cost

According to Epic, the Fortnite Crew subscription service will cost players $11.99 a month. This price makes the service an objectively good deal, as a normal battle pass costs 950 V-bucks, which costs around $8.

So for a few extra bucks from the standard price of a battle pass, you’re getting 1000 extra V-bucks, an exclusive skin pack, and the battle pass itself.

How to subscribe to Fortnite Crew

Epic Games
Players will be able to purchase the Fortnite Crew subscription from the Item Shop when it launches in December.

Subscribing to Fortnite Crew is, apparently, quick and easy. All you have to do is click the icons found in the Fortnite Item Shop or on the battle pass screen, meaning it doesn’t seem like players will have to jump through a bunch of hoops in order to get access to the service.

In addition, Epic Games also confirmed that fans will be able to cancel their subscription at any time. Presumably, fans will be able to keep all of the items they unlocked through the service up until that point, considering they would have already paid for that month.
