Kevin the Cube’s return to Fortnite Battle Royale has been a long time coming and it appears that a whole host of new limited-time missions focusing around its Island’s return have been activated to celebrate.

Seasoned veterans of the free-to-play game will know that there has been a different strategy deployed by Epic Games for its challenge system in Season 10, with a number of limited-time tasks being introduced for players to complete. 

With that being said, a brand new set of The Return challenges have been added following the v10.20 content update, meaning that a whole host of fresh rewards will soon be available to collect in Week 6.

Epic GamesThis Kevin the Cube inspired Fortnite loading screen can be unlocked by completing three of these challenges.

These limited time challenges will task players with arriving and picking up eliminations at a number of locations dotted around the Fortnite map, including Fatal Fields – where a Rift Beacon first appeared, and is now the home of Kevin the Cube’s Floating Island.

The full list of challenges have been leaked by Lucas7Yoshi for Week 6 and can be found below, along with the rewards.

Fortnite The Return limited time challenges

  • Sniper Rifle Eliminations (1) 
  • Outlast opponents in Solo or Duos mode (150)
  • Deal damage with Scoped weapons to opponents (500)
  • Search Ammo Boxes at Fatal Fields or Lonely Lodge (7)
  • Use different throwable items in a single match (2)
  • Land on top of a Floating Island and a Meteor (2)

Fortnite The Return rewards

  • Complete four challenges (10 Battle Stars)
  • Complete five challenges (1,000 Season XP)

Xbox One screengrabYou’re going to need to land on the Floating Island and a Meteor to complete The Return challenges.

As seen in the list, it doesn’t matter which of the challenges that you choose to complete with these limited time objectives. For example, if you want to unlock The Return loading screen, simply choose any three tasks you feel are the easiest and check them off in order to collect the reward. 

These challenges have been confirmed by Epic Games and are now available to complete. It’s worth noting, though, that just one of these challenges will be unlocked every day until September 12, then they will disappear.

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.
