Fortnite has now released its holiday season, and we are so excited to jump into all the action! 

This brand new season will take us through the New Year as well, making it a special one for sure.


One aspect of the new season that has remained unchanged is the weekly challenges.

These challenges are some of the best ways to level up your battle pass as fast as possible.

Here are all the week one challenges within Chapter 2 Season 5

Full Challenges

It appears Epic is following the same model that they used since the beginning of Chapter 2.

Each week of challenges will offer something different from the last, and we will get new challenges every week until the season ends.

Typically, the weekly challenges are leaked weeks in advance by Fortnite data miners.


This was the case with Chapter 2 Season 5; as when downtime began, data miners were able to uncover these challenges.

  • Complete 5 Bounties - 55,000 XP
  • Discover POIs - 20,000 XP
  • Collect Bars - 20,000 XP
  • Talk to a character - 20,000 XP
  • Sniper Rifle Eliminations from 150m - 20,000 XP
  • Shotgun Eliminations - 20,000 XP
  • Assault Rifle Damage - 20,000 XP
  • Explsoive Damage To Structures - 20,000 XP


Bounties can be found by talking to NPCs roaming the map and POIs.

They'll look a like a regular person, but will have a strange glitching animation.

It will assign you a random player to target and kill.


Talk To A Character

Simply talking to an NPC is enough to complete this challenge and you can easily find one as they have a speech bubble floating above their head.

Sniper Rifle Eliminations from 150m

This is a little more difficult as it requires some good aim.

But if you drop into a Team Rumble game, there are usually ample Sniper Rifles about and you can usually find a static target in the final circle.

Eliminations with common or uncommon weapons

You'll likely want to jump into Team Rumble for this again as there are more opponents to kill and you have a good chance of getting an Uncommon weapon.


Wait until the final circle and then get stuck into some fights!


Do not fear, Epic is not going to let you complete all of these challenges for nothing.

Players will be able to earn around 115,000 XP for completing each challenge, as well we can expect other rewards.

Week Two

Be sure to come back next week for all of the new challenges for the second week of Chapter 2 Season 5!
