It’s time once again for another batch of Fortnite challenges, this time for Chapter 3 Season 2 Week 4. For this week’s missions, you’ll have a lot to do, with tasks that require you to deal damage with specific weapons and visit certain areas of the map. While these new missions aren’t too difficult, some of them send you into areas you may not be familiar with.
In this guide, we will show you all the news Fortnite challenges with guides to overcome them as easily as possible.
- Accept a reward from a reward board within 30 seconds of landing (1)
- Catch or collect a thermal fish (1)
- Deal damage to opponents with a harvesting tool (75)
- Eliminate IO forces in a single match (3)
- Gain seconds of airtime after being hit by a shockwave grenade (3)
- Travel in the air with a Jetpack (100)
- Visit gas stations in a Battlebus (3)
Accept a reward from a reward board within 30 seconds of landing (1)
This mission may seem complicated, but with a bit of luck, you can complete it right away. Above is a map (thanks, Fortnite.gg) of the bounty boards across the island. To make sure you don’t land next to anyone else, we recommend choosing a spot that is out of the way of the Battlebus. Generally, the areas on the outskirts of the map are the safest. As soon as you land, head straight to the bounty board and make sure you don’t stop to loot along the way as you’re on the clock. Assuming you accept the reward within 30 seconds of landing, you’ll get credit for completing this challenge.
Catch or collect a thermal fish (1)
For this challenge, you can try to catch a thermal fish using a fishing rod or harpoon, or you can search for them in ice machines. Above is a map of ice machines (courtesy of Fortnite.gg) around the island. Depending on the route of the Battlebus and your skill level, it might make more sense to land on an ice machine away from the action to ensure your safety. Hot spring fish have less chance to spawn, so keep fishing or looking for ice machines until one appears. You only need to collect one, so it’s not too much of a hassle.
Deal damage to opponents with a harvesting tool (75)
This one is pretty self explanatory, but if you’re stuck you can earn credit by damaging an NPC or attacking a downed player in a team-based mode. You can also complete this challenge by engaging an opponent as you normally would, but this is tricky as they are likely to have a weapon, making it difficult to survive the encounter. However, if you land next to an opponent and immediately start attacking with the harvesting tool, you’ll at least make some headway towards this challenge. After you have dealt 75 damage, you will complete the quest.
Eliminate IO forces in a single match (3)
The tricky part of this quest is that you need to defeat three IO guards in a single match, which can be challenging if you’re not up for it. There are a number of places on the map that contain IO guards, but we like to head to The Fortress as there are plenty of hideouts there. We recommend looting, grabbing shields and weapons before engaging. Then once you’re ready, take out the first IO guard and make sure you have cover around him. At this point, any nearby IO guards will swarm and come towards you, so try to pick them off from afar so they don’t overwhelm you. Once you have defeated the third IO guard, you will complete the challenge.
Gain seconds of airtime after being hit by a shockwave grenade (3)
The hardest part of this challenge is getting a shockwave grenade, but luckily, there are a few ways to get them. The easiest way is to buy them for 36 gold bars from Quackling, located inside a small shack on the north side of Camp Cuddle. You can also acquire Shockwave Grenades from chests and Supply Drops, and also as floor loot. Once you have one, throw it on the ground directly below you and you will be thrown into the air for about three seconds. You can also stand on the roof of a building to launch yourself and make sure you’re in the air for at least three seconds.
Travel in the air with a Jetpack (100)
Jetpacks have been added back to Fortnite as part of the Season 2 update. These can be found inside large airships throughout the map. They are found hanging on the walls next to the doors that lead to the outside areas. There are usually multiple jetpacks inside the airships, so if someone grabs one first, just look around the various doors that lead outside. After getting a jetpack, jump out of the aircraft and double tap the Skip button to use it. Fortunately, you don’t need to have traveled 100 meters in a single jump or in the same game to complete this mission.
Visit gas stations in a Battlebus (3)
This quest isn’t too complicated, but you do need to know where to find the various gas stations around the map, as well as a manageable Battlebus. As shown on the map above (thanks Fortnite.gg), there are numerous gas stations dotted around the island. To find a Battlebus, head to the south side of Synapse Station, and you should see one parked between the buildings. Then drive the bus to three gas stations, keeping in mind that you don’t need to visit all of them in one playthrough. If you only manage to get one or two, you can pick up where you left off in a separate match.
