Fortnite Season 9, Week 5 Challenge Guide: Wind Turbine Locations
Wind turbines all over the shop.
Fortnite carries on changing, week by week, and we're now into Season 9, Week 5. Many of this week's challenges are fairly self-explanatory, but there is one that's a little trickier.
"Visit different wind turbines in a single match," developer Epic Games asks of us. "But where are the wind turbines' locations?" I hear you respond. Don't worry, we've got you covered.
You can watch the video above to see the locations of the five wind turbines you need to visit to complete this challenge (hint: they're all pretty close to Pleasant Park). You just need to land on top of a wind turbine for it to register you as having visited it.
When you're done, you might want to read the full patch notes for Fortnite's 9.20 update, which introduces a new throwable named the storm flip. According to Epic, the throwable "explodes on impact and creates a sphere-shaped zone." This zone brings Fortnite's evil storm to any safe zone, and makes any storm zone safe. You can therefore use it in a pinch if the storm has caught up with you--or throw it at an enemy to subject them to the storm's damage-dealing abilities, even when they would normally be safe.
In other Fortnite news, players have recently spotted a giant eyeball encased in ice within the game. The eye can be found underneath Polar Peak. It's still unclear just what this means for the game, although fans are theorizing it could lead to some kind of community event or even a Godzilla: King of the Monsters tie-in, which certainly wouldn't be out of the ordinary, as Epic has previously held tie-in events for John Wick and Avengers: Endgame. You can watch some footage of the eyeball here.
To tie in with E3 2019, meanwhile, Microsoft has unveiled a new Fortnite-themed Xbox One console bundle. In addition to the console itself, which sports a stylish royal(e) purple gradient, the bundle includes a matching purple Xbox wireless controller, a copy of Fortnite, a Dark Vertex cosmetic set for the game (comprising a Legendary Outfit, Epic Glider, and Rare Pickaxe), 2000 in-game V-Bucks, and a one-month free trial Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass (the former of which is required to play Fortnite).
