Epic Games have finally rolled out the Fortnite Season 5 update, revealing Disney’s The Mandalorian will be the latest crossover, and with that comes a number of Bounties to complete for the Battle Pass challenges. 

As Star Wars fans will know already, Bounty Hunters exist in the galaxy far, far away. The Mandalorian is just one example of that, and the narrative has been wildly popular since the show launched on the Disney+ streaming platform.

Now though, it’s time for Fortnite players to get involved with the action and hunt down bosses themselves. Prices have been put on heads and these targets are based right across the island, but what do we know about the system so far? Let’s take a look.

How to get Fortnite Bounties: Bounty system explained

It looks like there will be a developing series of Bounty challenges in Fortnite Battle Royale, which will give the community the opportunity to earn cash. This can then be spent in-game on a variety of different upgrades and even to hire other hunters.

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Enter the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the periodically updated Bounty challenges screen.
  4. Assign yourself to a specific bounty, and chase down your target.

How to hire hunters

We don’t really get patch notes anymore, but Epic Games did reveal a list of changes – of sorts – on December 2.

According to a blog post, it says: “As a hunter, it’s your duty to help the island’s characters in their unstable new reality. Take on their quests and bounties, get intel on your surroundings, or hire them to be your ally. Don’t want to negotiate? Challenge them to a duel and reap the rewards.”

New cash bar currency

New Gold Bars have been added as a new way of buying things.

There’s also a new currency system in place for the season, and it might even go beyond that as well. Essentially, for completing challenges and taking on different bounties, players will be able to rack up cash themselves. It will be wages, kind of.

In an official statement, Epic Games said: “The new characters only accept one form of payment: bars! Earn bars by completing quests and bounties, eliminating players, or finding hidden stashes around the island. Spend your earned bars on new exotic weapons, upgrades, intel, services and more.”

Fortnite NPC Locations

One of the new quest-givers, Bandolier, is situated in a shack at Slurpy Swamp.

Alongside the new update come new character NPCs that are situated all over the world. From Mancake, through to Sunflower and Farmer Steel, it’s worth visiting these as often are you’re able to break away from surviving against other players. Taking advantage of these NPCs will bag you fantastic rewards.

With challenges being called quests this season, everything feels slightly more story-driven, and these NPCs are no exception.

There are over 40 characters to meet and work alongside whilst surviving against the storm. MLL over on Twitter shared an incredibly handy guide as to where you can find each of them, shown below.

How it Works

Fortnite’s bounties are incredibly easy to start. All you have to do is:

  • Buy a bounty from any NPC on the map, shown in the image above.
  • A golden blip will appear on the map, showing you a rough area of where that particular player is.
  • Head to that area and proceed to find, and kill said player.
  • Completing the bounty will reward you with gold bars. These can be used to purchase weapon upgrades, or even hire NPCs as an ally.

SypherPK has already found quite a few tips, tricks, and glitches in Fortnite Season 5, but none are as hilarious as this one at Coral Castle that lets players ‘float’ in the air.

Fortnite Season 5 is well-polished, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t tricks and glitches that players can exploit. Game-breaking ones like being able to stay in the storm forever inevitably get patched.

However, smaller ones are more difficult to iron out, and nobody finds them better than Ali ‘SypherPk’ Hassan. He’s shared many crazy tips and tricks in the past. Now, he’s at it again with a glitch that lets players ‘float.’ He showed it off in a recent video, and the results are hilarious.

If you want to know how to do it, here’s a quick guide.

How to perform the ‘float’ glitch in Fortnite Season 5

To begin, you’ll need to make your way to Coral Castle. It’s not a popular landing spot by any means. SypherPK has only landed there about five times in total himself due to the lack of loot. However, the float glitch makes it more compelling.

Take note of what looks like a small pink pebble floating in the air. It’s difficult to spot at first, but once you’ve seen it in the video below, you’ll know what it is. Strangely, you can stand on it, even though it’s tiny.

Build your way up and perch yourself on top of the pebble. Then, knock all the platforms down and stay up there, which creates the illusion of floating. It’s no cheap gimmick, though. It’s an excellent spot to rain down some bullets on unsuspecting foes, even if it leaves you a bit vulnerable.

SypherPK managed to snag a bunch of eliminations while standing up there. He even managed to get a couple of early shots in and then swoop down on opponents while they were recovering.

SypherPK’s ‘float’ glitch probably won’t win you a game. However, it looks like a lot of fun and will likely help you secure some easy eliminations.

In the end, being innovative is a part of the game, and this glitch takes full advantage of that. 

Plus, imagine the look on your opponent’s face when they realize where they got shot from.
