Season 1, week 1 quest guide

Discover The Device (1)

The Device is found in the center of the map, as shown above. It’s inside the building in this area and is located on the ground as soon as you walk in. It’ll be a glowing blue briefcase, so interact with it to collect the item.

Damage Opponents While Sliding (50)

For this quest, simply deal 50 damage to an opponent, NPC, or wildlife to complete the objective. It’s best to use the MK-Seven assault rifle so you can aim down sights as you slide. To slide, start running and then click and hold down the Crouch button. Once you see the sliding animation begin, you’ll want to continuously hold the Crouch button for the duration of the slide. Keep in mind, there is a limited duration to the slide mechanic, but if you do it on a downward slope, you’ll cover more ground.

Jump Through Flaming Rings in a Vehicle (2)

There are two flaming rings you must jump through: One to the south of Rocky Reels and one at Chonker’s Speedway. To make your life easier, land directly at Rocky Reels and grab one of the vehicles in the center of this area.

Then, drive to the road directly south of this area and head east. You’ll see a small cliff with the flaming ring on top. Drive up to the cliff and then head southeast up a ramp and through the ring to earn credit.

From there, make your way to the northwestern side of Chonker’s Speedway, and you’ll find the next flaming ring. Drive north to south to pass through it by jumping a ramp.

Search Chests or Ammo Boxes at Landmarks (10)

Landmarks — not to be confused with named locations — are important points of interest around the map. In the map above (thanks, Fortnite.gg), you’ll see two types of areas: Some marked in white text, and some in blue. The ones in white text, such as Chonker’s Speedway, The Daily Bugle, and Shifty Shafts, are named locations, while the ones in blue text like Frosty Fields, Arid Acres, and Launchpad are landmarks. Visit 10 landmarks and loot a chest across each to complete this challenge.

Land at The Daily Bugle, then Finish Top 25 (1)

For this challenge, land at The Daily Bugle, which is on the northeast portion of the map. Loot up and then play cautiously without getting into engagements (if possible). If you stick to the edges of the storm and move slowly, you’ll have no trouble placing within the top 25. It’s best to do this in Squads so you have a higher chance of survival.

Open a Vault with Another Player (1)

The map above shows the locations of seven different vaults. Simply visit one of them with another player and stand in front of the vault door to open it. The vault door is typically on the bottom floor of the Vaults themselves. Both players need to interact with the scanner by the door to open it.

Get Eliminations with an SMG or Sniper Rifle (3)

As you play, pick up an SMG or sniper and earn three eliminations with either/or. Sniping can be difficult, so it’s best to use an SMG if you’re struggling. Make sure you play in team-based modes so you can down a player with whatever weapon you’d like and then finish them off with the SMG or sniper for best results.

Discover Named Locations (10)

As mentioned above, Named Locations are the main hubs around the map. These are places like Greasy Grove, The Joneses, and Camp Cuddle. Simply visit 10 of these locations to earn credit for the challenge. You’ll likely complete this one through natural play.

Receive Your Next Objective at The Launchpad (1) and Destroy Signal Jammers in a Single Match (3)

For the last three quests, you must visit a specific location for the objectives to trigger. The first one requires you to visit the large island in the cluster to the southeast of The Daily Bugle on the northeastern side of the map. Once you arrive, you’ll be briefed. Then visit the three red dots on the map above, where you’ll find jammers. Destroy them all within the same match to complete this one.

Receive Your Next Objective at Mighty Monument (1) and Place Surveillance Cameras in a Single Match (2)

Visit the Mighty Monument to the southwest of the previous island and you’ll be briefed again. Then, make your way to the two red dots above to place the cameras needed for this quest. Remember, both cameras must be placed in the same match.

Receive Your Next Objective in The Joneses (1) and Drop Off Supplies in a Single Match (3)

Finally, head to The Joneses and visit each of the three spots above to place supplies. Once again, all three must be placed in the same match.

All companions in Baldur’s Gate 3 and how to get them
Wyll with horns dancing.

There's a lot to see in Baldur's Gate 3, but you're not going to get far without a few good companions by your side. Thankfully, you'll stumble upon a wide assortment of NPCs that'd love nothing more than to accompany you on your journey. These friendly faces fill several different roles -- from mages and healers to archers and warriors, there's bound to be a companion that augments your playstyle.

Many of these companions also come with their own series of quests and unlockable skills, turning them into more than just faceless characters to help you in combat. In fact, you can spend hours unraveling their narratives, and depending on your actions, your companions might look very different at the end of Baldur's Gate 3 than when you first met them.

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.

All Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite

Most things in Lego Fortnite are grounded in reality -- well, as much as they can be in a game where you are a little Lego man running around collecting resources and building entire villages by yourself. You slowly accumulate better gear as you craft new items and upgrade your existing facilities so you can venture further out and face tougher challenges.

There's some equipment that works a bit differently, namely your Trinkets and Charms. These little doodads can be crafted as you collect specific resources, they come in a range of rarities, and all of them give your character a specific buff that can be placed on your armor to add to your character. There's a lot of them out there to find and craft, so we've cataloged all the Charms and Trinkets in Lego Fortnite and what they do.
