Battle Pass Challenges (And Solutions!) for Week 5, Season 7 of Battle Royale

They're man-made. Little damn things, smaller than my fist -- but they're new!

Welcome back to the show that never ends, everybody! We've all made it safely to 2019 (more or less), and before we even have a chance to catch our collective breath, it's time for a new batch of Battle Pass challenges. There's nothing particularly groundbreaking or confusing this week, so let's dive right on in and get you good folk on your way:

  • Land at Polar Peak
    • Land at Fatal Fields
      • Land at Tomato Temple
        • Land at Loot Lake
          • Land at Snobby Shores [Free | 5 Battle Stars total]
  • Deal 5,000 damage to opponent structures [Free | 5 Battle Stars]
  • Get 3 suppressed weapon eliminations [Free | 10 Battle Stars]
  • Dance on top of a Water Tower
    • Dance on top of a Ranger Tower
      • Dance on top of an Air Traffic Control Tower [Battle Pass | 5 Battle Stars total]
  • Search 7 chests at Wailing Woods or Paradise Palms [Battle Pass | 5 Battle Stars]
  • Search between a giant rock man, a crowned tomato, and an encircled tree [Battle Pass | 10 Battle Stars]
  • Eliminate an opponent from closer than 5 meters away, 3 times [Battle Pass | 10 Battle Stars]

Land at Polar Peak, etc

It's this again! If you had any ideas about dropping where you wanted for the first five matches of this week, you'd better forget 'em right now, buster brown! Be sure and load up our handy dandy map (located downstairs) on your device of choice to keep from losing your place in the progression!

Deal 5,000 damage to opponent structures

Not much to this one, just try to be a jerk more than you're trying to get proper eliminations. Team Rumble is back in the limited time mode rotation, and Epic says they're planning to run it "for a while," so that'll be your best bet to get damage and elimination-based challenges this weekend. Mr. Burgerman, tear down this wall!

Get 3 suppressed weapon eliminations

Again, Team Rumble is the place to be for this, since suppressed weapons are more likely to drop than in vanilla Battle Royale. Team Rumble is also a respawn-enabled LTM, so once you do get your hands on a suppressed gun, you'll have more than a single fight's worth of opportunities to get the eliminations you need.

Dance on top of a Water Tower, etc

Call me old fashioned, but I just love these dancing challenges. We've got a map downtown for where each of the three landmarks are located, but remember that since this is a staggered challenge, you can only get credit for one per match. And hey, if someone else is trying to dance, maybe let 'em. Give peace a chance, you know?

Search 7 chests at Wailing Woods or Paradise Palms

Epic continues a positive trend this week, once again giving us two locations in which to search chests, rather than just one, as was the case for many months. Team Rumble works well for this challenge too -- even if neither of these locations are convenient to the circle, you'll just respawn with your squad after getting killed by the storm anyway.

Search between a giant rock man, a crowned tomato, and an encircled tree

These treasure hunt challenges are fun in theory, and if Fortnite were a game about picnics and lollipops we'd say sure, take your time and really do the work for these challenges. That's not the world we live in unfortunately, which is why we have a map below showing exactly where the solution to this challenge is located.

Eliminate an opponent from closer than 5 meters away, 3 times

Alright, caveat here for our "Team Rumble for all elimination challenges" rule. It may actually be a lot quicker to ride the bus in normal Battle Royale to the end of its route, and then pick-axe the AFK players that drop onto the island. If you prefer a more honorable type of solution, however, shotguns and Team Rumble are indeed your friends.

Hidden Tier

It's an odd-numbered week, which means there's a hidden tier in play. After you complete all seven of the above challenges, head to the frosty location marked on the map below to claim your prize.
