Although taking fall damage has always been a part of Fortnite, these are the different ways that will help you complete the challenge to earn 12,000 XP:

Grind Rails

Players need to visit Mega City, one of the new POIs in Chapter 4, Season 2. You can use the Grind Rails there to easily complete the challenge, since the buildings are all high rising they easily tick off the 5-story prerequisite. You will find plenty of Grind Rails in this location so simply find one and jump off it. These rails not only allow you to jump off without suffering any fall damage but you can also change your direction, shoot at enemies, or heal yourself. Make sure to equip yourself with weapons while you are doing this challenge.


You will find Ziplines in different locations such as Shattered Slabs and Lonely Labs, and you can use them to complete this challenge. Ziplines are useful for swift mobility and to use them, you simply need to interact with them. If you launch yourself onto them while standing on a Kinetic Ore, it will help you to avoid fall damage.

Air Vents

Apart from the Grind Rails, you will also find Air Vents in Mega City. To launch yourself in the air, simply reach the top of the high-rise buildings, and walk onto the Air Vent to get an aerial boost. These Air Vents will help you avoid fall damage and hence using them will allow you to complete the challenge easily.

Kinetic Blade

The purple-hued katana is another safe option for you to complete this challenge. The blade has two types of attacks: Dash Attack and Knockback Slash. Using the Dash Attack from the top of buildings will tick off both the requirements of the challenge. Once you have dashed in the air, surviving 5 stories will not be a problem and you will be able to avoid fall damage due to the Katana.

These are the three methods that you need to know about to complete the challenge.
