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.

Fortnite season 2 Brutus’ Briefing list

Fortnite Brutus Briefings

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

Fortnite Mount Kay Landing

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 landing locations

Fortnite Lighthouse Locations

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.

Lockie’s Lighthouse location

Fortnite Lockie’s Lighthouse

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

Fortnite Apres Ski

You can find the Apres Ski lodge in the E8 square on the map. It is southwest of Misty Meadows and next to a patch of snow.

Mount Kay location

Fortnite Mount Kay

Mount Kay is the large snowy mountain easy of Misty Meadows. It is on the border of the G7 and G8 squares.

Landing challenge reward

The reward for completing this mission is 40,000 experience.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

The best Warzone 2.0 perks
Characters running in Warzone 2.0.

For months after launch, Perks in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 were been broken. Even after securing your loadout, certain Perks would fail to activate, resulting in an entirely useless mechanic overall. Likewise, you weren't actually able to customize which Perks were associated with a loadout, and instead, had to utilize Perk Packages. These had preset Perks tied to each, offering very little in the way of customization.

Thankfully, Activision finally issued a patch to fix Perks and Perk Packages, allowing players to make better use of these bonus abilities.
