Fortnite continues with its “themed” groups of challenges this season that don’t really have anything to do with its Hunter storyline, and yet they are all somewhat grouped together all the same.
This week the focus appears to be on shields for the most part, and the list reflects that. Here are all the challenges from season 5 week 7:Visit Houses in Slurpy Swamp in One Match (2) Collect Books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands (5) Consume Shield Potions (3) Destroy Slurp Barrels (10) Search Chests in Slurpy Swamp (7) Gain Max Shields in a Single Match (1) Eliminations with Zero Shield (1)
So, clearly you are going to be hanging around Slurpy Swamp for a while for half these challenges. You need to visit houses in the Swamp, and we have a guide for that here. While you’re doing that, you can search for seven chests in the Swamp and destroy some Slurp barrels too. You will need max shields for one challenge, but then conversely, you will need no shields for a different challenges that requires you to get an unshielded kill. Probably done best near the start of the game.
After all that, there’s really only one challenge left, which is to collect books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands, something that has nothing to do with either Slurpy Swamp or shields, unless they’re books…about shields, I don’t know. Anyway, we have a guide for that here, as I doubt you know where a bunch of random books are in those POIs off the top of your head.
If we are on a normal ten week rotation for this season of Fortnite we are nearly done with just three more weeks to go after this. But there is some rumbling that this is going to be one of those extended seasons with some extra weeks/months tacked on. But even when that happens, these challenge lists do usually end at 10 weeks, and then the game moves into overtime after that. So we’ll have to see.
For now, you can just focus on these challenges as I don’t think this is an especially hard week to rack up XP compared to others. Just head to Slurpy and after a game or two you will probably have nearly all of this done. See you out there.
