Fortnite Season 3’s Week 5 Challenges have tasked players with collecting floating rings at Steamy Stacks. It’s a fairly simple challenge, so let’s run through everything you need to know to get it ticked off. 

First off, where actually is Steamy Stacks on the Fortnite Chapter 2 map? Unlike a lot of the past challenges, it’s actually a named location, so it shouldn’t be particularly difficult to find for any player who tries.

Even so, we’ve marked it on the map below. You can find it in the very north east corner of the map. It is some way north of Dirty Docks and east of Craggy Cliffs. Expect for it to be fairly busy though, especially if you’re doing this shortly after the challenges go live.

However, once you land at Steamy Stacks, where abouts can you find the rings? The floating rings themselves are pretty easy to identify – a light blue, shiny ring will stick out if you manage to get one in your POV.

Players need to find 4 in total and, as the ‘floating’ description suggests, they are pretty high up. You’ll need to build to get to the rings, the locations of which are described below.

Fortnite Week 5 Floating Ring Locations in Steamy Stacks

  • Ring One – Floating just south of the tall silo in the south east corner of Steamy Stacks
  • Ring Two – Just north east of the second silo, slightly out to sea in the very corner of the map
  • Ring Three – Just north west of the second silo, slightly out to sea
  • Ring Four – Floating above the main building of Steamy Stacks, to the south west of the silos

Players will need to collect all four rings in order to complete this particular challenge. It’s ultimately not that difficult however, and any players who put their mind to it should be able to get it done swiftly.

The rest of the Fortnite Week 5 challenges are also pretty simple:

  • Search Chest at Sweaty Sands
  • Eliminations at Retail Row
  • Use a Firefly Jar or Flare Gun at Misty Meadows
  • Land at The Yacht and finish top 25
  • Catch fish at Craggy Cliffs
  • Upgrade a weapon at Salty Springs

As ever, there are pretty substantial XP rewards on offer, so get completing in order to rank up that Battle Pass!

SypherPK reveals tips on how to master Fortnite Zero Point Crystals

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

Topic starts at 1:30

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
