'Fortnite' season five adds a desert locale, golf carts and rifts

There's also a new vehicle, the All Terrain Kart (the ATK) which will accommodate your whole squad.

Viking ships, desert outposts, and ancient statues have appeared across the island. If that wasn't enough, the roof also acts as a bounce pad.

As always, if you're struggling to complete any of the above challenges, be sure to check out our Fortnite hub area, where you'll find a bunch of guides ready to help, as well as other Fortnite-related news and information. Squads will also be able to jump the ATK over obstacles.

Lean back and release at the same time for a higher jump. There is a new "Desert" biome and two new locations, Paradise Palms and Lazy Links.

Trump's next stop will be London, where he'll be meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Mrs Merkel told reporters: "I am very happy that today we are united in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany".

The biggest change pertains to the new Rifts that are scattered all throughout the "Fortnite" battle royale map.

Interestingly, the centre of some Storm circles will now shift in random directions as well as shrink.

The company has also seen fit to indicate how many shotgun pellets hit a rival player, providing more context as to why a point-blank shotgun shot only registered 8 damage. But it's a mere dint in the $100 million kitty Epic Games has set aside for a number of tournaments over the next few years, which shows just how much excitement there is around this game. The heavy shotgun now fires 10 pellets instead of 5, but the maximum damage of the weapon has been unchanged. To rectify this, players can earn XP for reviving their teammates in 50v50 and Teams of 20 matches. For the Nintendo Switch, Epic games has also included motion controls which can be adjusted in the Settings menu.

So what exactly do you get for completing the Fortnite Season 5 Week 1 challenges?
