'Fortnite' Leaks: Week 6 Challenges Answer Season 5 Mystery

So that's what those statues were for. 

When Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 started in July, players inspected every inch of the map for something new. One of the subtle additions were the Easter Island stone statue lookalikes found across the map. No one knew what they were for until a data miner found the next set of Weekly Challenges.

Data miner FNLeak tweeted the Week 6 Challenges for Fortnite: Battle Royale on Thursday. Along with the standard challenges to do damage, search for chests, and eliminate opponents tasks, one of the harder challenges is “Search where the Stone Heads are looking.” This is what players wanted to know for weeks.

Back in July, a thread on the Fortnite: Battle Royale subreddit had an image of the island map (below) and lines indicating where all the Stone Heads were facing.

The Stone Heads all face Salty Springs.


Some speculated the point where all the statues were facing would be the epicenter of a major event for the Season 5 storyline. It ended up that the spot, located in Salty Springs, will just be a Battle Star when the Week 6 Challenges go live.

Another interesting challenge is “Complete timed trials.” This could require players to use the other Season 5 addition, the All-Terrain Kart (ATK), in some races around the island. There is a racetrack in Paradise Palms that does keep lap times, but it’s only one location.

The Fortnite: Battle Royale Week 6 Challenges will go live on Thursday. These are subject to change based on various glitches or bugs that may occur on Tuesday when Epic applies the next patch for the game.

This past Thursday was not only when the Week 5 Challenges went into effect, but also the day Epic announced the start of the Fortnite: Battle Royale Android beta. First to get their hands on the game are Samsung Galaxy device owners thanks to a partnership between the developer and the tech giant.
