Season 4, week 1 quest guide

Bust through a door at Cloudy Condos and No Sweat Insurance

Busting through a door is different than simply opening it. You need to run at the door, and when you collide with it, you’ll bust through. So, you need to do that at each location. Remember, Cloudy Condos is a new aerial location, so be sure to land there first since it’s up in the air. As for No Sweat Insurance, it’s found in the middle of Tilted Towers. This is the large building with a yellow balloon on top. Use the map above for each location. You don’t need to bust through both doors in a single match.

Damage players with the Lever Action Shotgun or the Suppressed Submachine Gun

As you play, you should keep your eyes peeled for the Lever Action Shotgun and the Suppressed Submachine Gun. Since the Suppressed SMG has more range, you might have better luck using that, but pick whichever you’re more comfortable with. You have to deal 350 damage with one or both of these weapons, and your progress tracks across multiple matches.

Dislodge a Runaway Boulder with a slide kick

You might have a little trouble with this quest since the slide kicks don’t do much damage, but there’s a trick you can use to make it easier. For this one, we advise visiting the hill to the south of Tilted Towers (as shown on the map above), but there are plenty of other areas that contain Runaway Boulders. Either way, get close and damage the Boulder with your pickax first to weaken it. Then, once the Boulder has low health, back up and perform a running slide into it, which will send it flying from its position.

Drive different types of Chromed vehicles

This quest requires you to use Chrome Splashes, which are found at various locations around the map. First, we recommend landing at Cloudy Condos, close to the Chrome area. Either destroy Chrome trees or look for Chrome chests containing Chrome Splashes. We recommend getting your hands on at least three of them since that’s how many different vehicles you need to drive. Then, look for a vehicle in this area and throw the Chrome Splash at it. After that, drive the vehicle to another area, like Shimmering Shrine, to find another car or truck. Repeat the process by tossing the Chrome Splash at the next vehicle and then visiting one last area to drive a third vehicle. Tilted Towers is a great spot for vehicles. Keep in mind, you don’t need to drive all three Chrome vehicles in one match.

Hit opponents while sliding

The wording for this quest is odd — you don’t need to slide into enemies to damage them, but rather, damage them with bullets while sliding. You have to hit 10 opponents, but they don’t need to be actual players. Wolves and other NPCs count as well. We recommend bringing a great close-range weapon with you, such as a handgun or SMG, and when you see an enemy, slide close to them and do your best to deal damage.

Hunt different kinds of wildlife

There are lots of different wildlife around the map, so you can just keep your eye on them as you play normally and take them out gradually. If you’d like to make a beeline for this quest right away, your best bet is to visit spots around main hubs such as Greasy Grove and Herald’s Sanctum. There is also a lot of wildlife around Lustrous Lagoon. Either way, you need to defeat three different kinds of wildlife across any number of matches.

Purchase an item from Panther, Mancake, or The Underwriter

Above is a map of all three NPCs needed for this quest. You only need to purchase an item from one of them, which makes this quest a little easier. Just make sure you have a couple of hundred gold bars set aside to purchase any items.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.

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.

All Resident Evil 4 remake Wayshrines and how to open them
An open wayshrine with a bracelet inside.

In the opening chapters of the Resident Evil 4 remake, you will come across strange shrines erected by a cult. These can be interacted with, but prompt you to use an item. Unfortunately, you won't even have the chance to open the first couple you find since the item required to open them can't be picked up until a bit later -- and only if you know where to search for it. But it's ro say that the treasures you get from them make it worth your time to backtrack and grab all the goodies inside. Here's how you can open all the Wayshrines in the Resident Evil 4 remake, and what each one holds inside.
How to get the Wayshrine Key

Surprise surprise, but Wayshrines can only be opened once you grab the Wayshrine Key. It will feel like a long time, but you can't even access the key until you reach Chapter 4 and beat Del Lago. Once you can explore the lake, head south to the Mural Cave. Deep in the caves, you will find an ornate cabinet after solving the puzzle in the cave. You can get there by going down the path from the southern dock and through the section with the two large stone hands. Thankfully, unlike Small Keys, the Wayshrine Key is reusable and can open every Wayshrine in the game.
