One of Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 15 challenges centers around Sand Tunneling, and this guide details how to complete it very easily.
While there have been several problems with Sand Tunneling in Fortnite since its debut at the beginning of Season 5, it seems that developer Epic Games has gotten things fully under control. This means that it is now possible for the mechanic to be used in Fortnite challenges, and indeed it is at the center of one of the latest tasks. Specifically, this task instructs players to spend five seconds within 20 meters of enemies while Sand Tunneling, and this guide details exactly how that is done.
The first step to completing this challenge is to know how to Sand Tunnel in Fortnite, and it is a fairly straightforward process. Simply, fans should head to the desert area in the center of the map, which encompasses locations like Colossal Coliseum and Salty Towers, and stand still on the sand that is found there. After staying put for approximately three seconds, players will find that they are beginning to sink, and they will be able to Sand Tunnel by moving around once they have become fully submerged.

Now fans just need to locate an enemy and stay near to them while they remain under the sand. This can be done with an opposing players, and waiting for the circle to close in around the desert, at which point there should be a higher density of adversaries in the area, should simplify that approach. However, it is also possible to complete this Fortnite Season 5 Week 15 challenge by Sand Tunneling near an NPC, and that may be the easiest option.
Indeed, players that head to The Orchard, a landmark that is situated just north of Colossal Coliseum, should find a Fortnite NPC that they can entice toward the desert. This is done by firing upon the character while moving slowly toward the sand, and fans should Sand Tunnel as soon as possible. Players should then move close to the NPC and stay in position until they receive indication that they have finished the challenge and earned their reward.
With respect to exactly what that reward is, players that complete the “spend five seconds within 20 meters of enemies while Sand Tunneling” challenge will earn 40,000 XP. With Fortnite‘s Season 6 start date just a few days away, this is one of the last chances that fans have to make some real progress on the Season 5 Battle Pass. As such, players that are still hoping to earn the Sapphire, Topaz, and Zero Point skin styles should make sure to carve out some time for working on this task.
Fortnite is currently available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
