Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 has tons of quests for players to complete as they enjoy the game. Milestone Quests were tweaked a while ago but have returned to their usual format this time around. Daily Quests have been removed and replaced with Match Quests. Meanwhile, Weekly Quests have always been the same as they work perfectly.
Fortnite: Chapter 5 Season 1 Kickstart Quests
Here are all the Chapter 5 Season 1 Kickstart Quests and how to complete them.
This guide contains information on all the Weekly Quests released throughout Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1. It will continue to be updated each week, so gamers can check back later if they have any doubts about a quest in particular.
Visit Different Train Stations (5)
There are six train stations on the Battle Royale map, and gamers must visit five of them to complete this quest. Here is where to find them:
- Riviera Station – southeast of Ritzy Riviera
- Reckless Railways
- Orchard Station – south of Fencing Fields
- Snooty Station – north of Snooty Steppes
- Estate Station – southeast of Lavish Lair
- Forest Station – south of Classy Courts
Eliminate Enemy Players While Airborne (3)
This quest’s description may be confusing at first, as it seems impossible to eliminate someone while airborne. However, it is quite clear. Players must eliminate an enemy player while in the air, and they can do this by shooting them as they jump. It may take a few attempts to get it right, but gamers can increase their chance by lowering their opponent’s health first and then taking him out.
It is best to complete this challenge in Solos, as enemy players will be immediately eliminated.
Deal Damage to Enemy Players While Standing on Buildings (500)
This quest shouldn’t be too difficult, as gamers will most likely have the high ground while standing on a building. They will complete it once they’ve dealt a total fo 500 damage.
Destroy Structures or Objects (100)
Players can easily destroy structures or objects in Fortnite using the Snowball Launcher or Cluster Grenades.
Collect Weapons Dropped From Opponents in Different Named Locations (5)
Opponents will drop their weapons once eliminated, and gamers will have to pick them up in five different POIs in order to complete this quest. Since this challenge isn’t limited to enemy players, gamers can also complete it by collecting powerful Mythic weapons from Society Medallion bosses.
Land on the Train and Eliminate an Enemy Player Before Disembarking
The final challenge is worth twice as much XP (30,000 XP), as it is significantly harder to complete. Gamers will have to land on the train straight from the Battle Bus and then eliminate a player before getting off. This requires them to grab a weapon right away and successfully take down an enemy before they get the chance to do it first. Alternatively, if they don’t find a weapon quickly, they can attempt to pickaxe an enemy.
Week 5 quests will be released on Tuesday, January 2, at 9 AM ET.
Week 3 Quests
Travel Distance While on the Train (500)
The easiest way to get on the train is to land on it right after leaving the Battle Bus. Then, they must survive on it until they’ve traveled a total of 500 meters on it. Thankfully, the train is quite fast and will continuously ride around the island, so it shouldn’t take too long.
Restore Health (200)
To complete this quest, players will have to heal back some health. Gamers can do this by finding some health restoration items, such as Floppers, Medkits, or Bandages. They must apply these items after they’ve lost some health. This can be done naturally by playing the game or they can get it done faster by purposefully losing health either by jumping off a tall structure or using explosive items near their character.
Help Defeat Bosses (3)
Players won’t have to actually defeat a boss by themselves to finish this quest; they only have to assist another player or a teammate, so as long as they deal some damage to the boss and they’re eventually eliminated, it’ll count towards challenge progress. Players can target one of the Society Medallion bosses or Krampus while the Winterfest event is live.
Help Search Cash Registers or Safes (5)
Players must open five cash registers or safes to get through this quest. Safes tend to be much harder to find and they take much longer to open, so gamers who want to finish this quest right away should focus on the cash registers instead. Players can easily find cash registers in Fortnite by visiting restaurants, fishing shops, and other stores and buildings.
Deal Damage with Assault Rifles (5,000)
Assault Rifles are one of the most common weapons in Fortnite Battle Royale, so players shouldn’t have any trouble finding one. Then, they must deal 5,000 damage with one of these weapons in order to complete this challenge.
Deal Damage to Opponents While Using a Ballistic Shield (200)
Gamers can find the Ballistic Shield in chests or as floor lot. While this item allows them to defend themselves with a shield, they’ll also be able to use a pistol while it’s equipped. Fans must deal a total of 200 damage to an opponent using the Ballistic Shield’s pistol.
Week 2 Quests
Players must complete six Week 2 quests in order to receive all available XP. The first five quests will grant players 15,000 XP while the last one, which is significantly harder, is worth 30,000 XP. Those who have finished all Week 1 quests will also move on to the third stage of the Weekly Bonus Goals, unlocking an additional 30,000 XP.
Reach Top 50 Players Remaining (1)
The first quests of the week are quite simple thankfully. To get through it, players will only have to make it to Top 50 once. This means that they will have to survive the Battle Royale until only 49 other players are remaining.
Hit Opponents with Cluster Clingers (10)
Cluster Clingers can be found quite often as chest or floor loot, so gamers shouldn’t have too much trouble collecting them. Alternatively, gamers can get these clingers by talking to Metal Mouth or Vengeance Jones, as both of these NPCs sell Cluster Clingers for 200 gold bars.
Since gamers aren’t required to hit enemy players for this quest, they can easily complete it by hitting bosses and henchmen at Society Medallion locations.
Search a Container in Different Matches (5)
This quest requires players to search at least one container in a match, and then they must do this in four other matches. As long as fans don’t land in a hot spot with tons of other players, they should be able to make progress every match.
Collect Ammo at Named Locations (3,000)
Players will have to collect a total of 3,000 units of ammo to complete this quest. Sniper Rifle ammo won’t contribute as much towards quest progress, as gamers will only find six bullets at a time. Unfortunately, this is completely random, and gamers will simply have to open as many ammo and rare ammo chests as possible until they’ve finished it.
Reload Weapons (100)
In Fortnite, fans can reload their weapons as soon as they’ve shot a single bullet. So, players can easily rush this quest by shooting a bullet and immediately reloading it.
Deal Damage to Opponents While on the Train (500)
The train continuously goes around the map in Fortnite, and fans can get on it to collect high-rarity loot. It’s impossible to tell when an enemy player will be aboard the train. However, as soon as the game starts, a couple of players always tend to land on it right after jumping from the Battle Bus, so you should try to get on it before they do so you can attack them and complete this quest.
Week 1 Quests
Week 1 starts off with seven quests, and each one will provide players with 15,000 XP as they complete them. This week, players will be able to receive 90,000 XP by completing Week 1 Quests, and they’ll also earn an additional 30,000 XP for reaching their first bonus goal. Each time they complete five Weekly Quests, they’ll reach a new milestone and earn some bonus XP. Here are all Week 1 Quests and how to complete them:
Collect Uncommon Weapons (10)
Despite their name, Uncommon rarity weapons are some of the easiest weapons to find in the game. Fortnite has seven different item rarities, and Uncommon weapons are the most common after Common rarity weapons. Players can collect Uncommon weapons by picking up any green-colored guns that they come across.
Eliminate Enemy Players Using Weapons with Iron Sights (15)
Thanks to the addition of weapon mods to Fortnite, it is now easier than ever to create and use scoped weapons. However, for this quest gamers will actually have to eliminate enemies with iron sights, meaning that they won’t be able to resort to weapon scopes.
Thank the Bus Driver (5)
Players can thank the bus driver by pressing the Emote button before leaving the Battle Bus and landing on the island. This was a feature that many fans asked for, and it turned into a pretty fun and simple quest a while back.
Visit All Named Locations (11)
Chapter 5 introduced gamers to a new Battle Royale map, and it has 11 POIs that they can visit. Players will have to go to all of these locations in order to complete this challenge:
- Rebel’s Roost
- Classy Courts
- Lavish Lair
- Ritzy Riviera
- Pleasant Piazza
- Ruined Reels
- Grand Glacier
- Reckless Railways
- Fencing Field
- Hazy Hillside
- Snooty Steppes
If players manage to get ahold of a Whiplash, they’ll be able to check a significant part of these locations off their list in a single match.
Gain Shields (2,000)
Players will have to gain a total of 2,000 health by consuming Shield Potions and other healing items to complete this quest. Thankfully, with the recent mechanics’ update, they can now drink Shield Potions as they move around – unless they don’t change their equipped item, it won’t cancel their action.
Complete a Train Heist
Complete a Train Heist is part of a two-stage quest, in which gamers must complete the heist and then claim the floating island Capture Point. In order to prevent other players from reaching the train first and doing the heist themselves, players should immediately target it and land on it once they leave the Battle Bus.
There is a large chest near the front of the train; players must approach it and then press and hold the Hack Chest button. This works just like Combat Caches, so gamers must wait until the countdown ends. The chest will leave graffiti all over the train, and this is an indicator that the heist is complete.
Claim the Floating Island Capture Point
Floating Islands were part of Chapter 4, and they made a return this season. This loot island will only appear near the end game, which means players need to try to stay alive at least until the first Storm Circle has closed.
Once the island spawns in, it will be marked on the map. Gamers must get onto it by entering one of the rifts or the ascenders nearby. Then, they have to claim this location by standing near the Capture Point until the flag reaches the end of the pole. If players complete this second part of the quest, they’ll earn 30,000 XP for their efforts.
