The challenges for Week 3 of Season 5 in Fortnite Battle Royale have been released by Epic Games.

Much like in Week 2, players have been waiting somewhat longer than normal for the Week 3 Challenges to go live on July 24 but they have now been made available for everyone to complete.

As has become standard procedure in Season 5, some of the Challenges are “free”, but the majority can only be completed by Battle Pass owners.

The full list of Week 3, Season 5 challenges can be found in the image below.

The challenges marked “HARD” will earn you twice as much XP as the standard ones. The “eliminate opponents in Haunted Hills’ challenge will do the same, despite not being classified as HARD.

Once you’ve completed all seven challenges, the bonus “Road Trip” challenge will be unlocked. Completing it will grant you a free Battle Pass tier and get you one step closer to unlocking the mystery Road Trip outfit.

If you can’t see the image above, the challenges are as follows:

Free Challenges

  • Deal damage to opponents in a single match (500)
  • Use a Launchpad (1)
  • Follow the treasure map found in Flush Factory (1) – HARD

Battle Pass Challenges

  • Search Chests in Fatal Fields (7)
  • Shoot a Clay Pigeon at different locations (5)
  • Eliminate opponents in Haunted Hills (5)
  • Explosive weapon eliminations (3) – HARD

Keep an eye out for our various guides if you’re struggling with any of this week’s challenges!


When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
