Locations of All The Rifts in Fortnite Battle Royale for Week 5 Challenges, Season 5

A new set of challenges is live in Fortnite for Week 5, including one which tasks you with using three Rift’s on the map.

This should be a fairly straight forward task, but because the Rifts are spread across various locations and don’t always spawn in the same place, a quick guide will help speed up the process.

Rift Portals are brand new items on the Fortnite map for Season 5, related to the rocket launch and cracks in the sky that made for the transition from season 4 to 5.

They look like floating cracks of glass essentially, but if you approach them, it will launch you high up into the Fortnite sky and send you falling back down again.

More:

They’re not consistently in the same place, but they have very regular spawn points. So if you visit these zones marked on the map, you should have no trouble finding and entering three rifts.

If you are running the challenge with a teammate or three, bear in mind that once a rift is used once it will disappear after a short time, so you must ensure that you all use the rift quickly after each other.

The other thing to bear in mind, is that while it would be fast to immediately leave the game after you have entered the rift, it may cause you to lose your challenge progress. So stay in the game until you are eliminated or win the game.

If you are struggling with any of the other challenges, make sure to check out this week’s ‘cheat sheet‘, or individual guides below:

Fortnite’s yearly Fortnitemares event has finally arrived, but when does Season 5 arrive?

Fortnite’s new season dropped on August 27,  introducinging tons of changes to the Fortnite World with the likes of new Marvel-themed points-of-interest, superhero characters, and abilities for fans of the battle royale to enjoy. Midas’ Revenge adds even more for fans to sink their teeth into.

Midas’ Revenge has introduced new skins with their yearly event.

When does Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 start?

With only a few days to go of Fortnitemares’ Midas’ Revenge event, Chapter 2 Season 4 has over a month left, with an expected end date of November 30th, as reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX claims.

The Baba Yaga skin has just been released alongside the Ghostbusters bundle, with more soon to come. The skin is ‘Rare’ and part of the ‘Coven Fresh’ set, costing 1,200 V Bucks.

 

After the Fortnitemare event, the fifth season of Fortnite’s Chapter 2 should follow immediately, along with some more major changes and a new theme.

Will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 be available through Apple?

A portion of the mobile player base is currently unable to download Fortnite Season 4, due to the ongoing legal feud between Epic Games and Apple, with Apple blocking all future Fortnite updates on the App store.

While the feud is being resolved, there have been suggestions that Season 4 could potentially be extended for Apple users, although that remains to be seen.

Epic Games has already extended seasons in Fortnite Chapter 2, but there has been no sign from the developers that they have any intention of doing so this time around.

What will Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5’s theme be?

With Fortnite Season 4 being based completely around Marvel characters, there have been rumors that a DC-themed season could come next.

The Fortnite devs have already introduced members of the DC Comics universe as seen with Aquaman and Black Manta in Season 3’s recent Splash Down events. They may go a step further at the next opportunity, adding more familiar faces.

Epic also revealed plans for a Joker bundle that is expected to be released towards the end of Season 4, which could be used to build hype for the upcoming season.

With a new Batman movie also in the works, it would not be too surprising to see another partnership between DC and Epic but as for now, fans will have to wait until Season 5 draws nearer.
