Fortnite season 2 challenge guide: Visit lighthouse, Apres Ski, and Mount Kay

After months of waiting, the longest season of Fortnite is over, and season 2 is here. As with any new season, there are new weekly challenges to complete. Themed missions are back with every batch coming from one of the secret agents. In the case of week 1, players can complete Brutus’ Briefing.

The season 2 spy Brutus has some tasks for players to complete, and they are quite varied. You can find the full list of the missions this week below:

  • Search for seven chests at the Grotto or the Shark
  • Deal 2,000 damage to henchmen
  • Open a door locked by an ID scanner in three different matches
  • Search seven ammo boxes in a single match
  • Disguise yourself inside a phone booth in three separate matches
  • Crouch within 20 meters of unaware henchmen for a total of 10 seconds
  • Throw three different healing or shield items
  • Eliminate five players while having 100 health/shields or more
  • Land at Lockie’s Lighthouse, Apres Ski, and Mount Kay
  • Damage players with two different weapons within 10 seconds

Most of the objectives this week are all about familiarizing players with the new mechanics and map changes this season. Thankfully, Epic changed the format of challenges so that you can complete them in any order you want.

Fortnite Lockie’s Lighthouse challenge tips

One of the biggest tasks this week is landing at Lockie’s Lighthouse, Apres Ski, and Mount Kay. An important detail to remember is that you have to land at these locations, not just visit them. This means you’ll need to immediately go to each spot after jumping out of the battle bus.

Because of this, it can take three or more matches to complete this mission. One way to get around this is in the Team Rumble mode. It changed in season 2 to allow for unlimited redeploys, so you can fly around and land at all three locations whenever you want.

Alternatively, you can turn on the Party Assist feature, team up with your friends, and have three of you land at each spot to complete the challenge in one fell swoop.

All three spots that we need to land at this week are landmarks, so you will not easily see them on the island map. To help with this, we have circled all three spots above. You can find detailed descriptions of where they are below.

The lighthouse landmark is located in the northwestern corner of the map. It is in the C1 square on the grid map on the large island just east of the new Shark named location.

Apres Ski location

Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded has me optimistic about the shooter’s future
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

Since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0's launch, Activision has slowly made improvements to the shooter, with each season being more fun than the last. It's been a slow burn, but with the launch of Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone 2.0 finally feels like it's in a decent spot. There's still much to improve upon, but given the sheer number of fixes and quality-of-life features that have been added with the latest season, I'm finally optimistic about the future of this game.
Ranked is surprisingly fun

The most notable addition to Season 3 Reloaded is Ranked, a mode that has been highly requested since the original Warzone. This features a robust ranking system that gives players a greater incentive to improve and perform well, while also adding a much more competitive feel. Since the original Warzone days, there has always been a lack of incentive to improve. Sure, winning a match is a rush, but after pouring hundreds of hours into the game, it's easy to get bored. With Warzone Ranked, climbing the ranks places you into different categories, from Bronze all the way to Iridescent and Top 250, while also yielding cosmetic rewards along the way. Each subsequent ranking places you into slightly more skilled lobbies, adding a bit more challenge as you climb.
