Fortnite’s Season 2, Week 5 is now into full swing, and as always, fans of the popular battle royale title have 10 brand-new tasks to take on as the new Meowscles’ Mischief challenge set goes live on Thursday, March 19.
Fortnite’s v12.20 Update officially released on March 17, introducing the new Choppa, a helicopter that can carry your whole squad around the map for easy rotations away from the storm, or to new locations in search of loot or enemies, depending on what you’re after.
Fortnite fans won’t be at all surprised to hear that a new week means new challenges, and Epic Games have dropped another set of 10 tasks in Meowscles’ Mischief, one of the secret agents who make up the Season 2 Battle Pass which is themed around the world of espionage.
Players will be doing plenty of traveling this week, as they’ll be required to open Chests at Misty Meadows or Salty Springs for the week’s first challenge. While you don’t need to land here to complete it, it will likely be the easiest way to do so, as many others will inevitably drop at these locations, and all the Chests may be gone by the time you make it there should you choose to go somewhere else at the start of the match.
Players will also need to visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site in a single match without swimming, so vehicles are imperative if you want to avoid dipping your toes in. Using a boat or Choppa will be the easiest way to tick this task off, but you can also try and build your way across the water if you have the materials, although this is a more difficult way, and will leave you exposed to enemies who spy you running across.
You’ll also need to visit one of the five new locations in Fortnite Season 2 — The Agency, The Grotto, The Shark, The Rig, or The Yacht — to deal damage to Henchmen using a pickaxe, which may also prove difficult should you choose not to land here as opponents will likely drop in these areas first in hopes of knocking one down. You can view the full list of challenges below, which were leaked by iFireMonkey.
Forgot to leak these, whoops.

Anyone who owns the Season 2 Battle Pass will also be able to take on a brand-new Deadpool challenge, which will count towards acquiring the Marvel character’s skin.
Completing these tasks is definitely worth it if you own the Battle Pass, as each challenge offers 40,000 XP as a reward, which goes a long way towards unlocking new skins and cosmetic items.
