It is crazy to think players are already in Week 5 of Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7.

With a new week comes new challenges for fans to complete and earn sweet, sweet XP for their Battle Pass.


The Week 5 challenges revolve heavily around IO and aliens, with one of them requiring Fortnite players to damage a Saucer while there is a pilot inside of it.

How to Damage a Saucer With a Pilot Inside

Fortnite Saucer

Piloted Saucers are found in Invaded locations, or locations whose names are purple on the Island map.

Hint: if a Saucer is up in the air, it has a pilot.

All Fortnite players need to do to complete this quest is to deal 800 damage to flying Saucers.

The easiest way to do this?


Use a Rail Gun.

Each shot will deal over 200 damage, making it extremely easy to take down a few Saucers, dealing more than enough damage to cover the 800 needed in only a matter of moments.

Of course any automatic weapon will quickly rack up damage as well, as long as players can keep them trained on a Saucer long enough before getting beamed.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, Week 5 Quests

A new week brings new quests.

Here is the complete list of Legendary and Epic quests for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, Week 5.

Completing each one will net Fortnite players a total of 390,000 XP towards their Battle Pass.

This Season Legendary quests are also serving to move the story along more than they have in previous Seasons.


  • Get Slone’s orders from a Payphone (1) – 15,000 XP
  • Interact with a CB Radio (1) – 45,000 XP
  • Place Welcome Gifts in Holly Hatchery (2) – 30,000 XP
  • Deploy Alien Nanites (1) – 30,000 XP
  • Dance near Zyg and Choppy (1) – 30,000 XP
  • Get infected by an Alien Parasite and talk to Sunny (1) – 30,000 XP



Overall there is an interesting mix of challenges to complete, though nothing so crazy that players should not be able to complete them over the course of a few matches.
