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!


Epic confirms long-awaited Fortnite pre-edit changes are coming soon

It’s been a long time coming, but now Fortnite players can be put at ease: Epic are working on pre-edit changes to make building easier after years of the community petitioning.

Pre-editing has been a contentious issue in the Fortnite community for years. They’re on for all players, and helps players quickly place a lot of edited builds.

However, most players don’t use pre-editing, so its existence ends up being a hindrance more than anything. It can leave players exposed due to a poor build, something they weren’t intending at the time.

Pre-edits have been the bane of Fortnite players across the world. Thankfully, Epic are working on disabling them.

A new rallying cry across the community comes across with every new season, pleading with Epic to at least give player the option to disable pre-edits. While they’ve been dodging the issue for quite some time, there’s finally been some solid news.

After a year of uncertainty with Epic stating they were “actively considering” it, they’ve now set their course on giving the community what they want.

“We don’t have an exact timetable, but we’re going to [add a disable pre-edit option],” community coordinator TheStevieT told players on Reddit.

It comes after more clips of players dying because of their pre-edited builds went viral across Reddit and other social media platforms. It’s quite the common occurrence, and with Epic now solidifying their stance, it’s got players excited.

That being said, it could be a little while before it’s added. They’ve started work, but without an exact timetable in mind, it could be seasons down the line. One can hope that it’ll be added in Chapter 2 Season 5 at the end of 2020 though.


Another Epic staffer, gstaffEpic, clarified that such a change isn’t in any of the Fortnite builds yet. However, it’s getting close, and it’s something they’re “working towards.”

It might not be the most explosive subject, but as far as quality of life changes go, this could completely transform the way Fortnite is played. We will update you once more information arises.
