How to fly to The Collider’s energy field in Fortnite Chapter 3

The Collider has become a prominent item on Fortnite Island. It currently emits pulsing waves of energy from time to time and will likely be fully activated by the time the live event begins. At the moment, no one knows what it is capable of when fully charged.

While there are rumors suggesting that it will destroy all life on the island, this is likely not to be the case as the story will be shortened. In reality, The Collider will be stopped by The Seven and Mecha, and the Imagined Order will likely be forced to rethink their plan of attack.

However, before this happens, Epic Games wants players to fly into The Collider’s energy field for “scientific” purposes. Although there are risks involved, those who manage to complete the task will be rewarded with 20,000 XP.


It’s time to fly to The Collider to get science and XP in Fortnite Chapter 3

This Fortnite week ten challenge is, without a doubt, one of the most fun expeditions yet. However, there are also multiple risks involved. For starters, the area is a free fall zone. Players will be present here at the start of each match hoping to secure kills and improve their K/D ratio.

Second, with the amount of loot in the area, it won’t take long for opponents to land and equip. Those trying to land on The Collider are likely to get shot if they get too low, too slow, or too late. However, it is not an impossible task to undertake. Here are the steps required to complete it:

  • Pick the perfect time to jump off the Battle Bus and head to The Collider.
  • Angle the jump so that the glider is deployed slightly above the level of the collider.
  • Glide in a straight line to maximize speed and aim for The Collider’s superior energy field.

This method is by far the fastest and easiest to do. However, once players touch the energy field and bounce back, players will need to be quick and get out of the area. Since it’s a hot drop zone, opponents will face off below. Attempts to land and fight will likely end badly and lead to a quick death.

For those who want to have a fighting chance at the POI, there is a dangerous alternative method that can be used to accomplish the task. Here are the steps required to complete it:

  • Land at a POI near The Collider and get ready.
  • Find additional shield and HP items as they will be needed.
  • Get to The Collider and look for a jump pad.
  • Use a jump pad to get some air time and fly towards The Collider after activating the Glider.

Although the risk of doing it this way is higher, players will have enough gear to fight or at least outlast opponents in the area. Additionally, players can also continue the match by completing the Fortnite challenge.
