It’s week 2 of Fortnite chapter 3, season 2, which means a brand new set of challenges await. For this week, you’ll need to visit various locations around the map to collect items, and you’ll need to get your hands on specific weapon types to deal damage. Many of the quests are tied to the game’s various new features, so you’ll want to be familiar with them before attempting to complete some of these challenges.

These are the new quests for chapter 3, season 2, week 2, and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Season 2, week 2 quest guide

Visit Sanctuary, Tilted Towers, and Command Cavern (3)

This one is pretty self-explanatory, but if you’re having trouble, we recommend attempting the quest in a Team Rumble match so you can respawn if you’re eliminated early. There are also vehicles at Tilted Towers, so it might be best to hit this location first. Remember, this quest is cumulative, so you don’t need to visit all three locations in one match.

Travel 300 meters in a tank (300)

The hardest part about this challenge is finding a tank, but thankfully, the map above shows each location on the island. They have set spawns, so head to whichever one is safest, and drive around in the tank to reach 300 meters traveled. This quest is cumulative, so if you don’t manage to travel 300 meters in one match, you can pick up where you left off in another game.

Purchase a weapon of Rare rarity or higher from a vending machine (1)

Map of Vending Machines in Fortnite.

There are several different Vending Machines around the map, so pick whichever one you’d like and be sure to set aside 50 gold bars to spend on the Rare weapon. You don’t actually need to use the weapon — simply buying it will do the trick!

Destroy structures using remote explosives (25)

This one will probably take you the longest since remote explosives aren’t too common. To make this go as smoothly as possible, we recommend getting your hands on around six remote explosives, which can be found inside chests or as floor loot around the map. Then, visit a house or other large indoor structure and place the remote explosives all around the interior (and exterior if you have enough). Stand back and detonate them to cause destruction — hopefully, you will have destroyed 25 structures.

Deal shotgun damage to opponents within five seconds of sprinting (200)

This challenge is a lot easier than it sounds. You need to first get your hands on a shotgun, so make sure you loot thoroughly to find one. Then, either locate an enemy player or NPC and sprint around them. Stop sprinting, shoot the enemy with the shotgun, and repeat the process until you’ve caused 200 damage. If you get eliminated early, you can pick up where you left off in a separate match. Try to aim for the head to deal as much damage as possible.

Damage opponents with an Exotic weapon (150)

Map of NPCs at Camp Cuddle in Fortnite.

There are four possible NPC spawns on the north side of Camp Cuddle, each of whom sells an Exotic weapon for 400 gold bars. Head to this location and find an NPC to buy an Exotic weapon from. After that, you need to deal 150 damage to opponents with that weapon. If you’re having trouble, you can shoot enemy NPCs — such as the ones at Command Cavern — or even Loot Sharks to make this one easier.

Collect a weapon while sliding (1)

Thankfully, the final quest is an easy one. Play until you see a weapon on the ground, then back up and run towards it. Before you reach the weapon, use the slide feature and then interact with it just as you slide overtop. The slide mechanic lasts for a long time, so you should have plenty of opportunities to pick up a weapon while the animation takes place.

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.
