We've reached the final week of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, and with it, the final weekly batch of challenges.

Well, that's not strictly true. After Epic Games announced the arrival of Season 3 has been delayed until early June, there'll likely be a lot more 'overtime' challenges in the coming weeks.

But in terms of the original plan, this is the last week, and it's one of the best looking batches of tasks we've seen in a while.

This week's challenges ask you to do everything from carrying the giant pink teddy bear found in Risky Reels 100 metres to dealing damage to a Choppa with a passenger or pilot inside.

But it seems the two challenges that are giving players the most grief are the ones that ask you to search Midas’ golden llama between a junk yard, gas station and an RV campsite, and collect five XP coins.

We'll put a full list of this week's challenges at the bottom of this article, but here's how to complete those two:

How to collect five XP coins

XP coins can be found hidden across the map, and gift the player XP points depending on their value.

Gold/orange XP Coins give the player 2000 XP and are usually found in vaults, while purple XP Coins are worth 1250 XP - though they explode into smaller coins which you have to race to collect.

Blue XP Coins grant 900 XP, and once you hear them appear you have to find them in the area before they vanish

Green XP Coins are only worth 450 XP, but there are no gimmicks here!

Once you've collected five - the rarity of the coin does not matter - that’s the challenge completed, and an extra 40,000 XP for your character.

Where to search between a Junk Yard, Gas Station and RV Campsite

This challenges ask you to to search Midas’ golden llama between a junk yard, gas station and an RV campsite.

This is no ordinary Fortnite llama - oh no - what you're looking for here is actually a golden llama head mounted on a wall.

To find this llama head, you'll want to head to the junk yard, gas station and RV campsite near Frenzy Farm.

Look for the bridge between Frenzy Farm and Dirty Darks, and right by it you should see the tiny, non-descript building that houses the golden llama near.

All you have to do is land there and search it; this is one of the easier challenges to complete on the list.
