Fortnite Quests in Chapter 5 Season 3

The Fortnite quests have continued to grow recently, with more of the All Sweat Summer quests rolling out over the past week, though we now have the full set of assignments there to demonstrate your battle royale prowess. If you haven't reached them already then the Pea Bois are waiting for you in the ongoing Story quests section, with another set of scripted storyline tasks waiting in the wings for next week. Of course, there's lots more going on outside of the battle royale, so make sure you check out the separate experiences of Lego Fortnite, Rocket Racing, and Fortnite Festival to see what else they have available.

Don't overlook these assignments, as they provide a significant amount of additional XP during Fortnite Season 3 to speed up your progress through the Battle Pass. Alongside the Nitro Wasteland Stories Snapshot storyline quests, you can take on Jumpstart quests showcasing the fresh mechanics introduced this season, plus the returning Daily quests, overall progress quests (Milestones), and classic Weekly quests providing plenty of different options.

The Week 8 quests are mainly combat related, so you'll need to eliminate four players with pistols or SMGs, hit three different opponents with Nitro Fists in a single match, and deal 1,000 damage to opponents with shotguns, so keep an eye out for all of those weapons and be prepared to use them. You'll also need to mod a vehicle within 60 seconds of landing from the bus, so look for a ride near your starting point and get it to a mod crate quickly!

There are certain Fortnite quests that will get ticked off through natural gameplay and don't require attention, but we're here to help with the ones that need specific knowledge or actions to clear. Completing quests is a lot easier these days now we no longer rely on Fortnite characters to distribute them, so if you want to know what you need to do for that sweet XP boost, then check out the quests section of the main menu – or the pause menu – and you'll find them all clearly laid out, with the option to track your progress on a specific challenge. Keep completing quests and you'll earn massive amounts of XP across the entire Fortnite season so you can unlock fresh rewards – and who doesn't want that? Here's everything we know about the latest Fortnite quests.
