Season 1, week 3 quest guide

Search coolers or ice machines (5)

Map of Fortnite cooler locations.

There are coolers and ice machines all around the map, and they spawn in fixed locations. If you don’t happen to search all five in one match, you can pick up where you left off in a new match. Use the map above (thanks, for their locations.

Slide continuously for 25 meters

Character sliding in Fortnite.

This one is simple — you just need to use the new slide mechanic for 25 meters. Make sure you have a long stretch of land ahead of you before clicking in the right stick to slide. You can set a waypoint to keep track of the distance you’ve covered.

Bounce 5 times on Spider-Man’s Bouncers without touching the ground (5)

Map of Fortnite bouncer locations.

Spider-Man’s Bouncers are large webs that serve as trampolines and can be bounced on continuously. Use the map above for their locations and then bounce from one while adjusting your position each time. The toughest part is being aware of your positioning at the peak of each bounce.

Talk to Guaco, Bunker Jonesy, and Cuddle Team Leader (3)

Map of Guaco, Bunker Jonesy, and Team Leader in Fortnite.

This challenge requires you to talk to three different NPCs who spawn at fixed locations around the map. Team Cuddle Leader is on the north side of Camp Cuddle, Guaco is at Greasy Grove, and Bunker Jonesy is at the Joneses. The map above features all three locations. Remember, you don’t need to speak with all of them in the same match.

Collect stored items from a tent (2)

Tent in Fortnite.

Tents spawn randomly around the map and can be acquired to store items or even replenish health. Sometimes the tents appear throughout the world in between main hubs, so keep your eyes peeled for them as you play. Then, simply interact with one to place two items inside, and then collect them right afterward.

Deal damage to opponents at Rocky Reels or Condo Canyon (75)

For this challenge, we advise landing at Rocky Reels or Condo Canyon straight away. Make sure you communicate with your team so they know you’re attempting this challenge and have them cover your back. Remember, your progress carries over from match to match, but you can easily deal 75 damage in one go if you get the right weapon.

Hit weak points while harvesting (100)

Hitting weak points in Fortnite.

This is the easiest challenge of the week, as it simply requires you to hit weak points while destroying objects with your harvesting tool. Just make sure you hit the object at the right angle and the little indicator will appear, allowing you to deal more damage.

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.

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.
