Finish Top 5 in a Match Not Working Fortnite

The “Finish Top 5 in a Match” Fortnite Indiana Jones challenge is not working due to a little miscommunication. Or maybe it’s a bit of a whoopsie on the side of the developers, it’s hard to tell. Either way, the challenge is actually working. The problem is that it doesn’t count top five placements, but top five surviving players. That shouldn’t be a problem if you’re going solo. However, if you’re in duos or squads, you might have made it to the top five as a team, but that doesn’t count. It has to be five people left alive. So, in duos, you technically have to be in the top two, and in squads, you pretty much have to win, assuming your whole team survives. It’s a bit of a mess.

And, so, yeah, that’s why the Fortnite “Finish Top 5 in a Match” Indiana Jones challenge is not working. Or rather, it is working, but not the way you’d expect it to. Fortunately, it seems that the developers are aware of the issue. In fact, the Fortnite Status Twitter account has acknowledged it, adding: “In a future update we will amend this to Top 5 *Placements*.” So, your headaches will not last for too long, and you’ll be able to complete the challenge and earn the yellow Emergency Raft Glider. In the meantime, you can keep trying to finish the mission before the patch, just know that you have to be one of the last five people standing.
