The following is a breakdown of each of the Week 5 quests and advice on how to complete them. Where additional information is needed, we'll specify and update once the quests are live in-game. All quests will be worth 25,000 XP.

Build Structures at Creamy Crossroads, Sleepy Sound and Condo Canyon 0/3

A nice simple quest to start the week where you just need to do any kind of building at each of the three locations. Just a single wooden wall will do to qualify for the quest.

You can complete this over multiple matches as it does not specify that it needs to be completed within a single match.

Claim an abandoned Tent 0/1

Tents are abandoned when the player who places them is eliminated. This quest will only pop when you claim one of these tents, not when you set up your own for the first time in a match.

Just approach an abandoned tent and interact with it to claim it as your own.

Finding and claiming an abandoned tent should be simple

Drive a vehicle through water 0/1

Another simple quest here, just drive any land-based Fortnite vehicle through water. Naturally, this won't pop if you're using a boat!

Knock down Timber Pines 0/5

This may be the only tricky quest you'll face this week if you're not sure where to go. Timber Pines are huge trees places across the island. They are, however, much more common at Logjam Lumberyard. Head here for your best chance to knock five down and complete this quest!

Gain shields using a Shield Sprinkler 0/100

The shield sprinkler is a brand new Fortnite item having only launched a few days ago. To complete this quest, use one and stand in its AOE (area of effect) to fill your shields.

Once you have 100 accumulative shields from a sprinkler, the quest is complete.

The shield sprinkler is anew item and you can carry 2 in a stack within your inventory.

Teleport using Rift Generators at different Seven Outposts 0/3

Rift generators can be found at most Seven Outposts in groups of three. Just approach one of the rifts to be teleported into the air above the outpost and you can try and glide to the next outpost to complete this quest fairly quickly.

Destroy structures with Motorboat Missiles 0/15

Motorboats are equipped with missiles and you're being asked to destroy stuff with them, how fun!

Drive around and take aim as any structure, player built or pre-existing. Once you've destroyed 15 segments, the quest is complete!

Damage opponents with an SMG 0/1000

These quests are becoming a weekly Fortnite staple. This time you need to do 1000 points of damage with an SMG. It's entirely possible to complete in a single match but you're more likely going to complete it over the course of 2-3 matches.

The stinger SMG is your best option.

Purchase Items from vending machines 0/3

Save up those gold bars because the final quest of the week will see you needing to purchase three items from vending machines. This can be weapons, ammo, health items or even mystery items!

As long as it's purchased from a vending machine, the quest should track your progress.
