Season 1, week 6 quest guide

Travel 100 meters while flying around a tornado (100)

The hardest part about this objective is actually finding a tornado, as they spawn randomly around the map. From what we’ve gathered, you can sometimes spot a tornado as soon as you jump from the Battle Bus, though this isn’t always consistent. The best thing you can do is jump into a match and then deploy your parachute right away. Look around to see if you can spot the tornado, and if not, land and keep your eyes peeled for a tornado in the sky and make your way towards it.

The sky will be gray and is quite obvious, though its position is random. You can then run into the tornado or use Web-Shooters to swing into it. Once you do, the tornado will keep you in the air as long as you steer into it. If for whatever reason, you fall out of the tornado, you can jump back into it and your progress will carry over. After you’ve traveled 100 meters, the challenge will be completed.

Damage an opponent within 45 seconds of crouching in tall grass (1)

Tall grass appears all around The Daily Bugle in the northwest corner of the map, so you’ll want to head there first. This one can be tough to coordinate, but essentially, you’ll want to get an enemy’s attention at The Daily Bugle and lead them out to the outskirts of the area. Then, crouch in the grass, pop out and deal damage to the opponent.

Remember, you don’t actually need to eliminate the opponent, just deal damage, so don’t worry about finishing them off. This is one of the trickier challenges since it’s a little more luck-based, but you can definitely take a few measures to get it finished.

Purchase a random item from a malfunctioning Vending Machine (1)

Vending Machines spawn in fixed locations around the map, but the malfunctioning ones appear randomly, unfortunately. Most Vending Machines are blue, but the red ones indicate that they’re malfunctioning. It’s best to land around the north side of the map close to Shifty Shafts since there are multiple Vending Machines in this area.

Hop in a vehicle and drive around to Logjam Lumberyard, Sleepy Sound, and Coney Crossroads until you find a red Vending Machine. If you try this a couple of times and still can’t find one, simply play normally and you’re bound to come across a malfunctioning Vending Machine eventually. Once you do, you’ll need 100 gold bars to get a random item.

Destroy Timber Pine stumps with a melee or ranged weapon (3)

This quest is similar to one from week 5, only this time, you must destroy the Timber Pine stumps. For this, you must either use a melee weapon or ranged weapon (or a combination of the two) to complete the challenge. After you’ve dealt enough damage, the main part of the tree will collapse, leaving only a stump. Then, destroy the stump to earn credit and do this a total of three times to finish the quest.

Recover health by resting in a tent (30)

For whatever reason, tents seem to spawn around gas stations so make your way to one and look around. Once you find a tent, simply claim it by interacting with it, and then select Manage Storage to go inside. You’ll need to have taken damage to be able to heal from resting, so build a ramp and jump off so you aren’t at full health. After you’ve healed 30HP, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge.

If for whatever reason you can’t find a tent, play normally and you’ll eventually come across one.

Mark an enemy player using a Flare Gun (1)

Flare Guns spawn randomly from chests or as floor loot, so keep your eyes peeled as you play. Once you’ve got your hands on one, keep playing until you encounter an enemy. Then, shoot the Flare Gun in their general direction and it will mark them. Don’t worry if you aren’t close — the Flare Gun has a large radius. As long as you’re within 25 meters or so, it’ll count.

Honk a car horn within 10 meters of an opponent (1)

This one requires a little luck, but thankfully, it’s not too difficult. We recommend landing at Greasy Grove for this and hopping into one of the nearby cars. With a little luck, you’ll have enemies around you. If so, pull right up to them, and press down on the D-pad to honk. Make sure you’re within 10 meters for this to count. If you can’t find an enemy, drive around to busy areas like the middle of the map, Sanctuary, or The Daily Bugle to find an enemy. It helps if you play Solos for this one.

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.
