Season 1, week 4 quest guide

Get Headshot Damage with a Pistol (75)

Aiming with a pistol in Fortnite.

This one will probably come naturally, but if you want to get it finished quickly, we advise playing in any team-based mode. From there, down an enemy player with your weapon of choice and then finish them off with pistol headshots. It’s much easier to line up your shots on a downed player, rather than one who’s actively dodging your attacks.

Harvest Wood from The Joneses, Shifty Shafts, or Logjam Lumberyard (150)

Logjam Lumberyard in Fortnite.

Next is another simple one: Simply visit The Joneses, Shifty Shafts, and/or Logjam Lumberyard and chop wood with your harvesting tool. Remember, progress carries over across all three areas and does not need to be done in the same match. As the name suggests, Logjam Lumberyard is an excellent source of wood but is also a highly contested area, so make sure to plan carefully when choosing your location.

Detonate Gas Cans to Destroy Objects (2)

For this challenge, you don’t actually need to damage enemy players or structures with gas cans to earn credit. Instead, simply destroy gas cans to damage two objects around you to complete the challenge. There are lots of gas canisters around the map, but the best one is the bridge to the southwest of Shifty Shafts, as shown in the map above. This bridge has several canisters and if you shoot them, they’ll destroy whatever objects are around them, and since there are so many canisters here, you shouldn’t have any difficulties.

Dance at Chonker’s Speedway, Rocky Reels, and Greasy Grove (3)

Greasy Grove in Fortnite.

This quest is yet another one that requires you to visit multiple areas, but thankfully it’s not too challenging. We recommend landing at either Greasy Grove or Chonker’s Speedway since both of them are on the outer edges of the map, and then visiting Rocky Reels since it’s in the middle. Just remember to emote at each of the three locations — it doesn’t have to be a dance, despite the challenge description. Also, you don’t need to visit all three in the same match.

Experience Guzzle Juice Effects for 15 Seconds (1)

Map of ice boxes in Fortnite.

The toughest part of this quest is finding Guzzle Juice, which has a possibility of spawning from coolers around the map. Keep in mind, Guzzle Juice doesn’t have a 100% spawn rate from coolers, but it’s frequent enough. Use the map above (thanks, to find all cooler locations. After you’ve found one, build a structure and jump from the top to take damage. The more damage you take, the more you’ll need to heal, which will cause the effects of Guzzle Juice to last longer. Thankfully, you don’t need to experience the effects for 15 seconds consecutively to complete this challenge.

Deal Damage to Enemies with Rare or Better Shotguns (400)

Shotgun in Fortnite.

This quest can be a little tricky if you don’t typically use shotguns. Keep playing a match as you would normally and be on the lookout for rare shotguns (blue or better). From here, you can down a player and finish them off with your rare shotgun, or simply use it to take down opponents in close quarters. Once you’ve dealt 400 damage with the shotgun, you’ll complete the challenge.

Hide in Stealth Grass for 10 Seconds (10)

Map of tall grass in Fortnite.

All around The Daily Bugle are patches of tall grass. The map above shows their locations. For this quest, simply crouch down and hide in any of these patches for 10 seconds and you’ll earn credit for completing it. You don’t need to hide for 10 consecutive seconds, but you should be able to do so with ease.

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.
