The latest rounds of Fortnite challenges have become available, and this week, they want you to get jiggy with it. Thankfully you don't have to dance like no one is watching, because you'll be tearing it up with at least one robot friend. This week 5 challenge asks you to figure out how to make a Stark robot dance.

Here's how you get those cold husks of steel to, quite literally, do the robot.

How to make a Stark robot dance

First off, you need to find a Stark robot before you can make one dance. You'll remember that Stark robots tend to hang out around the Quinjets that land at different locations across the Fortnite map.

Simply look for the blue smoke emitting from a Quinjet or just look on your map for the white jet icon. That's how you'll know where to look.

Once you've figured out which Quinjet to approach, make sure you're at least somewhat kitted with a weapon or two. The Stark robots are diligently guarding each Quinjet, and a pack of them puts up a mean fight. Try to attract one away from the others if you can.

Shoot one of the Stark robots until it goes down. Don't fully kill it yet, though. You then need to hack the Stark robot by interacting with it while it's crawling around on the ground. That makes the Stark robot a friendly AI character.

Now all you have to do is use a dance emote, and as long as the Stark robot is relatively close, it'll start doing the (surprise) robot dance.

For your trouble, you'll get 25,000 XP added to your battle pass. Not too hard of a challenge, assuming you didn't get lit up by several other Stark robots while you're trying to make dance floor magic.
