Epic Games have finally added the concept of Bounty and Gold in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5.
Along with this, Epic has introduced the concept of Beskar Quest in Fortnite well. As the first Legendary Quest, players will have to take on the Mandalorian and complete his outfit challenges.
In previous seasons, the meaning of Gold and Bounty were different in Fortnite. For instance, Gold represented the highest tier of loot available. In contrast, Bounty was introduced in Fortnite Chapter 1 - Season 9.
During the John Wick event, Bounty Challenges were quite popular. However, this time, in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5, it has an entirely new meaning.
Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5 Guide: Complete the Legendary Beskar Quest and Bounty Challenges
The Mandalorian comes with his own mythic weapons and is the first Boss in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5. Hopefully, this guide will help players grind the challenges and complete the Quest quickly.
The concept of Gold Bar currency as well as new NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 2 - Season 5, is quite refreshing. These characters will accept the Gold Bars as payment and help players to complete Quests and Bounties.
The Mandalorian outfit comes with various edits and attachments. Completing the first level of the Beskar Quest allows players to unlock all of them in Fortnite.
Players can unlock Shoulder Plates, Thigh Plates, as well as Torso, Helmet, and clothing for The Mandalorian outfit. Completing the Beskar Quest grants all these outfit attachments instantly.
The Special Quests Beskar Challenges are as follow:
Complete a Legendary Quest: The Quest is divided into several challenges where players have to complete five Bounty Challenges. Players can start by grinding with the easiest one.
Players will have to talk with an NPC (non-player character) in-game to complete the first challenge.
For this, players can drop down to Hunters Haven, a new POI south of the Zero Point. Lexa, the Fortnite Anime skin, is present there, and players have to hire her with Gold to eliminate enemies.
Lexa also has the Storm Scout Rifle, and players can buy that with 1225 Gold. The bosses in Season 5 give players Gold Bars for completing Bounty challenges.
Players will also get to complete specific missions, earn Gold, hunt their Bounty targets, and hire specific Hunters to assist them in Chapter 2 Season 5. The above clip from SypherPK shows how players can hire Hunters in Fortnite.
Alternatively, players can also interact with Deadfire, Menace, Man Cake, Farmer Steel, Bandolier, Sunflower, and several more. These NPCs have been added to facilitate the concept of Bounties in-game.
It is rumored that the Legendary Quest will be updated each week by Epic Games to keep things fresh in Fortnite.
