How to open chests in Tilted Towers in a single match

Tilted Towers have been an iconic POI in Fortnite for quite some time now. In Chapter 3 Season 1, the POI was reintroduced to the game once all the snow on the map had melted. Despite going through various changes and iterations over the years, the essence of the location has remained unchanged.

During Chapter 3 Season 2, the war between The Seven and the Imagined Order caused some structural damage to the POI. However, it wasn’t that bad and repairs have already started. In fact, players are now voting to have fan-made structures added to the POI.

Given the current hype surrounding the location, Epic Games wants to bring back the sweaty old days of Tilted Towers. For one of the last challenges in the game, players will need to enter the popular location and open three chests in a single match. Although the task is demanding, those who manage to accomplish it will be rewarded with 15,000 XP.

Here’s how to open three chests at Tilted Towers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.

Approximately 55 chests can be found in Tilted Towers. While the numbers suggest that there are enough chests for everyone who lands on the POI, that’s generally not the case. Given how frantically the loopers search the sweaty location for loot, chances are most of them will open within seconds.

So how do you secure three chests in Tilted Towers in Fortnite Chapter 3? Well, the answer is quite simple: land in an isolated part of the POI. Having said that, players will ideally want to land on the far north of the location. Here is a map to better understand why.

As seen on the map, although there are more chests towards the center of the POI, they are in a high risk area (marked in red). Most players who land on the spot will try to target this region to improve their odds of opening three chests in quick succession. Given the fierce competition, while some may be successful, the majority will perish in the fight.

Moving north, the concentration of chests thins out. As readers can see, there are only three chests on the field (green circles). While not as dangerous as the center of the POI, there are still some risks. Due to the lack of cover, searching for chests can be a problem. With high-rise buildings giving opponents good shooting positions, players can get stuck.

The best location to land directly is at the north end of the POI (circled in green). Chests are placed near cover and with a bit of maneuvering, players can get in and out of the area before being shot by opponents. There are a total of five chests relatively close by and only three of them will need to be opened to complete the challenge.

Alternative method to complete the challenge.

Based on community feedback, this Fortnite challenge will be difficult for players to complete. Since this is Tilted Towers, survival is not guaranteed. With that being the case, players can opt for an alternate method of completing this challenge, which is to use the bot lobby.

It will take a while to set up, but once complete, Fortnite players will be able to easily open three chests in Tilted Towers. In fact, they will also be able to complete any other challenge. Before readers can ask the question, the answer is no. This convenient method is not illegal and does not violate any rules set forth by Epic Games.
