The Travis Scott Astronomical Challenges are live in Fortnite, letting all fans speedrun through the objectives before the in-game Cactus Jack concerts take over the servers.

The Astronomical stage on the Fortnite island will be key for most of the challenges, and will require you to bust a move like you would at a Cactus Jack show in real life. To get to the nitty-gritty, check out the guide below for the steps you need to complete every new entry in the game.

The next set of challenges in v12.41 will give the Fortnite community three different tasks, each of which will unlock a new item inspired by Travis Scott’s brand – and completing all three gives them access to a special dance emote.

The challenges for the Travis Scott x Fortnite event.

For the first challenge, you will have to dance for 10 seconds on the dance floors located at The Yacht or Apres Ski.

This one is the most straightforward challenge of the set; all you need to do is make sure you have enough room to use an emote before getting killed by another person looking to complete the first task.

Then, to complete the ‘Bounce off of different giant Astro heads,’ you will have to make a trip down to the Astronomical stage area.

Travis Scott heads are going to be located around the Astronomical stage.

Once you’re there, giant Astro heads (Travis Scott’s head statues) will be located on the surrounding islands. The challenge wants you to do this five times, which will be easy to do if you’re quick enough.

The giant heads are located very near each other in front of what could be the stage for the Astronomical in-game event.

Completing the second challenge will net you the special banner icon for the Cactus Jack event in Fortnite.

Simply visiting the stage will complete the third challenge in Fortnite.

Finally, the simplest challenge in the stack requires you to visit the stage north of Sweaty Sands. By doing this, you’ll get the last piece of content in the challenge set.

Then, by locking down all three challenges, you’ll get a new Travis Scott emote reminiscent of the rapper’s famous on-stage moment from 2017.

Due to the upcoming Travis Scott concerts taking place within Fortnite, these are going to be popular items to collect to show off during the show.

There’s plenty to get excited about in Fortnite Season 5, but right now we’re here to tell you all you need to know about the new Exotic Weapons.

After the epic Galactus battle that took place during Season 4’s Nexus War finale, Season 5 is putting the focus back on Fortnite lore, as Agent Jones brings together the world’s greatest hunters – including The Mandalorian – for a chaotic battle that will shape the future of The Island.

Season 5 has brought with it a number of new additions, including a brand new map and bounties that tie into the Mandalorian crossover. It’s also introduced a new class of weapons called Exotic Weapons, which can be found at various places across The Island.

At the time of writing, there are five Exotic Weapons to be found in the game, although this number will likely grow in the future – and you can be sure we’ll keep you updated when it does.

They’re not as strong as Mythic Weapons, and whether they’re actually worth your time getting is up to you. But like all limited-time weapons and collectibles in Fortnite, we’re sure fans will be doing their best to find them all.

How do you find Exotic Weapons in Fortnite?

The new Exotic Weapon class guns can only be acquired by trading Gold Bars with specific NPCs that appear at various locations on The Island. Some of these can be found at more than one location.

You’ll need to start saving Gold Bars if you want to buy Exotic Weapons

Not sure what Gold Bars are? We’ve got you covered in our handy guide to the new Fortnite currency. as well as our guide to completing Bounties which will reward you with more Gold Bars.

Below you’ll find the full list of new Exotic Weapons, where to find them, and who to trade with to get them:

Exotic weapons list and how to get them

  • Boom Sniper Rifle – The Boom Sniper can be acquired by trading bars with Splode near Craggy Cliffs. It deals 10 damage, 25 headshot damage, and attaches a 60 damage clinger to your opponent.
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol – The Shadow Tracker can be acquired by trading bars with Reese at Dirty Docks. It deals 29 damage, 58 headshot damage, and is completely silenced.
  • Storm Scout Sniper Rifle – The Storm Scout Rifle can be acquired by trading bars with Lexa at Hunter’s Haven. It deals 85 damage, 212 headshot damage, and tells you where the next storm circle is.
  • The Dub Shotgun – The Dub can be acquired by trading bars with Dummy, who can appear either west of Dirty Docks, or southeast of Stealthy Stronghold. It deals 120 damage close range, 150 headshot damage close range, and will knock you back after firing.
  • The Nighthawk Revolver – The Night Hawk is acquired by trading bars with Mancake at Butter Barn which is southeast of The Zero Point. It deals 44 damage, 88 headshot damage, and its scope is in black and white when scoping in.

Each of these weapons will set you back a whopping 1225 Gold Bars, so you better get saving if you want to try them all out.

Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapons map

If you haven’t already memorized where the above locations are on the map, Fortnite leaker Mikey has put together a handy visual guide for finding them all, which you can see below:

As we said before, some of the NPCs that sell these weapons can spawn in various locations, so you won’t always find them where they are on this map – but it’s certainly a good place to start looking.
