The qualifiers are over and the Fortnite Champion Series for Season X is about to begin with a massive $10 million prize pool. Here’s all you need to know.

New to Season 10 was the Champion Series, which helped keep the esports scene rolling along, even though the World Cup was over.

Players had to compete in the Trios format, which was a nice change of pace from the solos and duos of the World Cup.

The Fortnite Champion Series Finals are here.

With qualifiers now wrapped up, all eyes are set on who will come out on top in the finals on Sunday, September 22.

Many of the big names you’ll recognize here, notably Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney who was able to snag a qualifying spot in the final week, leaving Cloak and 72hrs without a spot even though the three secured a spot together.

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.
