Chapter 2 Season 5 has mixed up so much of the Fortnite formula, especially when it comes to earning XP.

Quests are the go to now in Fortnite, but how exactly do they work, especially when it comes to weekly quests?

Well, we’re here to help you understand, and explain how ‘Weekly Challenges’ work in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5

What Are Quests?

Quests are challenges by a different name, and net you varying amounts of XP depending on their rarity and difficulty!

The rarer the challenge, and typically the more difficult the challenge, the more XP you earn!

It also appears for the rarest quests, there are now multiple steps, and the ability to repeat them for more XP.

The different rarity of quests are as follows, alongside their equivalent from previous seasons:

Legendary (Orange)


Weekly Challenges with a Time Limit

50,000 XP first time (22,000 XP for repeating)

Epic (Purple)

Weekly Challenges with no Time Limit or Beskar Challenges

22,000 XP

Uncommon (Green) 


Supercharged Daily Challenges with a Time Limit

10,000 XP (Only three per day)
