How to complete Fortnite Quests in Season 1 of Chapter 5

Fortnite Quests in Chapter 5 Season 1

The Fortnite quests are continuing to evolve right up to the end of the current season, and while the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cowabunga Pass quests have now expired they've been replaced with a fresh set of Odyssey quests involving building up a Mosaic, along with the final group of weekly tasks. Of course, in addition to those entries on the battle royale side of things, there are also lots of assignments to get stuck into through the standalone experiences of Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival.

Don't overlook them, as they provide a significant amount of additional XP during Fortnite Chapter 5 to speed up your progress through the battle pass. While there are currently no Snapshot storyline quests other than through the new Odyssey section, you can take on Kickstart quests showcasing the fresh mechanics introduced this season, plus the retooled daily quests (Match), overall progress quests (Milestones), and classic Weekly quests that now arrive in a complete set instead of in sections.

The Week 13 quests involve climbing to the top of Superior Summit to the east of Hazy Hillside, and moving around to rack up distance travelled while restoring health or shields. As always, eliminating five enemy players within seven seconds of reloading a weapon and eliminating three enemy players using the first weapon you collect in a match are best tackled in Team Rumble mode, so head there if you're stuck.

There are certain Fortnite quests that will get ticked off through natural gameplay and don't require attention, but we're here to help with the ones that need specific knowledge or actions to clear. Completing quests is a lot easier these days now we no longer rely on Fortnite characters to distribute them, so if you want to know what you need to do for that sweet XP boost, then check out the quests section of the main menu – or the pause menu – and you'll find them all clearly laid out, with the option to track your progress on a specific challenge. Keep completing quests and you'll earn massive amounts of XP across the entire Fortnite season so you can unlock fresh rewards – and who doesn't want that? Here's everything we know about the latest Fortnite quests.
