Fortnite Season 5 – Upgraded Battle Pass Challenges

The following is a list of the upgraded challenges in week 1 of season 5 of Fortnite.

Fortnite – What Is A Battle Pass?

A Battle Pass in Fortnite provides access to a season’s worth of weekly challenges that you can complete in exchange for exclusive rewards. A season lasts 10 weeks, so that’s quite a lot of bang for your buck.

Season 5 included a free Battle Pass option that provides you with three of the four Weekly Challenges. You’ll now have to upgrade the Battle Pass to unlock the remaining four challenges.

To get your hands on an upgraded Battle Pass, you first have to buy (or earn) the appropriate number of V-Bucks, which is Fortnite’s premium currency. The Battle Pass upgrade costs 950 V-Bucks right now, and 1,000 V-Bucks costs £7.99 / $9.99.

An upgraded Battle Pass only lasts for an entire season of Fortnite, so you will need to purchase another when the new season starts. The good news is that you can earn a total of 1,300 V-Bucks over the course of a season, provided you get to the max season level of 100. As long as you don’t get tempted to spend them on consumable items, you can feasibly pay once and get enough V-Bucks each season to buy the next Battle Pass every single time.

Fortnite – How Does A Season Work?

A season of Fortnite lasts 10 weeks, and you have to earn a total of 100 Battle Pass tiers in order to get the maximum rewards. You start at tier one, and can increase in tier by completing challenges or levelling up to earn Battle Stars.

That’s where the challenges come in. Complete one and you’ll earn between five and 10 Battle Stars, and if you earn enough of them you’ll increase in tier. You can also earn Battle Stars by increasing your season level, and by owning a Battle Pass you’ll earn more XP anyway.

Get to tier 100 and the entire set of rewards is yours. This typically includes emotes, character skins, V-Bucks, XP boosts, sprays, loading screens, and harvesting tools.

Fortnite – What Are Drift & Road Trip Challenges?

The Drift & Road Trip Challenges replace the Carbide and Omega Challenges from Season 4 of Fortnite. Each of them provides cosmetic upgrades for the Drift and Ragnarok outfits respectively.

Drift Challenges

You earn Drift Challenge rewards by gaining various XP totals:

XP Reward
10,000 Chest Cosmetic
25,000 Chest Cosmetic
50,000 Head Cosmetic
100,000 Back Cosmetic
200,000 Back Cosmetic / Rift Edge Harvesting Tool

Road Trip Challenges

You earn Road Trip Challenge rewards by completing all challenges from seven out of 10 of the seasonal Weekly Challenges. Beat all seven out of 10 and you unlock a further exclusive reward.

Challenge Reward
Complete all challenges from any week Cosmetic Upgrade
Complete all challenges from any 2 different weeks Cosmetic Upgrade
Complete all challenges from any 3 different weeks Cosmetic Upgrade
Complete all challenges from any 4 different weeks Cosmetic Upgrade
Complete all challenges from any 5 different weeks Cosmetic Upgrade
Complete all challenges from any 6 different weeks Cosmetic Upgrade
Complete all challenges from any 7 different weeks Cosmetic Upgrade / Mystery Item

Fortnite – Daily Challenges

Daily challenges change every 24 hours and provide you with three generally quick and easy challenges. Complete them and you’ll get a nice chunk of XP and Battle Stars.
