Fortnite Season 7 Week 5 Challenges

More Epic and Legendary Quests to complete for tons of XP.


Don't look now but the Fortnite Season 7 Week 5 challenges are coming up fast. The Legendary Quests have gone live as of July 7, while the Epic Quests will follow exactly 24 hours later. As usual, the list has been datamined and leaked ahead of its official unveiling by Epic. If you're wondering what you'll need to do for the Fortnite Week 5 challenges, here's your full preview, which includes using new equipment like alien nanites, greeting new NPCs like Zyg and Choppy, and performing a few more covert missions for Doctor Slone.

Week 5 Legendary Quests

Week 5 Epic Quests

  • Destroy computer equipment at satellite stations or Corny Complex (3) – 30,000 XP
  • Damage IO Guards (250) – 30,000 XP
  • Eliminate Trespassers (2) – 30,000 XP
  • Deal damage with IO or Alien weapons (500) – 30,000 XP
  • Loot supply drops (2) – 30,000 XP
  • Damage a Saucer with a pilot inside (800) – 30,000 XP
  • Open an IO chest at a satellite station or Corny Complex (1) – 30,000 XP

As has been the case all season, this week's Legendary Quests ae centered around story, and once more that begins with you taking orders from Slone at any payphone in the game. You can find payphones most reliably at bus stops in or near named locations. Their ringing is quite loud, you won't miss it.

Some of this week's quests, like interact with a CB radio and place welcome gifts in Holly Hatchery are story-driven and we've got guides for them ready to assist you. Alien nanites are new and can provide a host of new abilities, such as a gelatinous temporary shield and low-gravity movement. Zyg and Choppy can be located using our Fortnite Season 7 NPC guide.

To get infected by an alien parasite, you'll want to let one latch onto your head. The best place to do this is likely Holly Hatchery (formerly Holly Hedges) because that spot is now a breeding ground for the flying aliens and it's not far from where Sunny hangs out. Once infected, head to Sunny and talk to her at Believer Beach to complete this challenge.

You'll once again be infiltrating the pro-alien movement with Fortnite Week 5 challenges.

As for the Epic Quests, they are once again an assortment of tasks more familiar to seasoned players. You can complete several of them at any of the satellite stations or at Corny Complex, including destroy computer equipment, damage IO guards, deal damage with IO or alien weapons, and open an IO chest.

Alternatively, if you head to any invaded location on the map (with its name written in purple), you'll find alien AI enemies known as "trespassers." You can eliminate two of them and use their dropped Kymera Ray Guns for the alien weapon damage, as well as complete the challenge that requires you to deal damage to a Saucer (or UFO) with a pilot inside. The last challenge of the week, to loot supply drops, is best done in Team Rumble where supply drops come fast and furious in the latter portion of any round.

Once you've completed all Fortnite Week 5 challenges, you'll have leveled up at least a few times and be well on your way to completing the Season 7 Battle Pass--or maybe you're hoarding your Battle Stars for Superman. Don't miss the Week 5 Alien Artifacts while you're here.
