Season 1, week 12 quest guide

Visit Adrift or Pawntoon in a Motorboat (1)

The first quest for the week isn’t necessarily hard, but it’s one you might need help with since it involves visiting secret locations. For the purposes of simplicity, we advise visiting Adrift because Pawntoon spawns in different locations each match. Pawntoon is a large boat with plenty of goodies aboard — but it’s hard to reliably land there consistently since it doesn’t appear in a fixed location. Instead, visit Adrift, which is located on the west coast of Greasy Grove. Grab a motorboat at the dock and drive it to the west. Once you arrive at the location marked on the map above (thanks,, you will have arrived at Adrift, and you’ll earn credit for this challenge. Adrift consists of debris from the arm of a mecha that landed in the water during The Final Showdown.

Use Spider-Man’s Bouncers to Catch a Zipline (1)

The easiest way to complete this challenge is to land at The Daily Bugle and bounce on the Spider-Man web bouncer on the east side of this area. It’s right beneath a zipline, so keep bouncing and pressing the Interact button to grab onto it. It helps if you immediately start repositioning your character as soon as you bounce so you can adjust in mid-air.

Gain Shields at Butter Barn (50)

Butter Barn isn’t marked on the map, but it’s the large building to the northwest of Chonker’s Speedway, across from a gas station. Check out the map above for more details (courtesy of Land here and loot the inside of the building. Eventually, you’ll come across shields, and to complete this challenge, you need to replenish 50 HP. We recommend filling up on small shields first since they cap you out at 50 HP.

Destroy Objects in Covert Cavern (25)

Covert Cavern is the secret area to the northeast of Camp Cuddle. It’s found under a mountain and contains numerous deadly NPCs. We advise landing at the west side of this area, which doesn’t have as many guards. For this challenge, you need to destroy 25 objects here, so make sure you break everything in sight while trying to collect loot so you can defend yourself. You don’t need to destroy all 25 in one go, so if you get eliminated early, just finish it up in a separate match. Your progress carries over from game to game.

Destroy Gas Pumps (4)

Unsurprisingly, you’ll find gas pumps at gas stations around the map. There are several of them to choose from, and for this challenge, you only need to destroy four pumps. Not all gas stations feature at least four pumps though, so we recommend landing at the one just northeast of Rocky Reels, across the river. You can find its exact location on the map above (thanks, This gas station has 12 pumps total, so you can easily complete this challenge in the same match. Just slash them with your melee weapon or shoot them and they’ll all start exploding.

Damage Opponents with Explosives (100)

As you play, be on the lookout for grenades or other explosives. We recommend landing at an area with lots of buildings such as Tilted Towers so you’ve got a higher chance of finding explosives from chests and as floor loot. We recommend having a few grenades or other explosives just in case you mess up or don’t deal 100 HP worth of damage. When you find enough, you can either damage a real player or an NPC. Since you have to deal 100 HP worth of damage, it’s likely you’ll need to throw multiple grenades, so keep this in mind.

Collect Treasure Using Drake’s Map (1)

While you’re at Covert Cavern, you’ll want to be on the lookout for Nathan Drake’s treasure map. It spawns in different locations within the Covert Cavern area, so make sure you’ve got your eyes peeled as you explore.

The map itself is gold and can be collected just like a regular item. Keep running around the underground section and you’ll eventually stumble across it. Once you’ve got the map, you’ll need to follow the dotted line until you get to the X, where the treasure is. Again, this area is different each time. After you’ve found the X, dig up the treasure chest and open it for some fantastic loot.

The best places to land in Fortnite (Chapter 5, Season 2)

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death.

As part of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one is best comes down to your skill and preference. With that in mind, here are the best places to land in Fortnite for veterans, beginners, and everyone in between.
The best places to land in Fortnite
Before jumping into the list of the best places to land in Fortnite, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot. they also typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

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.
