Season 2, week 4 quest guide

Accept a bounty from a bounty board within 30 seconds of landing (1)

Map of bounty boards in Fortnite.

This quest might seem tricky, but with a little luck, you can knock it out right away. Above is a map (thanks, of the bounty boards across the island. To ensure you don’t land alongside anyone else, we advise picking a spot that’s far away from the Battlebus’ path. Typically, areas on the outskirts of the map are safest. As soon as you land, head directly to the bounty board, and make sure you don’t stop to loot on the way since you’re on the clock. Assuming you accept the bounty within 30 seconds of landing, you’ll earn credit for completing this challenge.

Catch or collect a Thermal Fish (1)

For this challenge, you can either try to catch a Thermal Fish by using a fishing rod or harpoon gun, or you can look for them in ice machines. Above is a map of ice machines (courtesy of around the island. Depending on the path of the Battlebus and your skill level, it might make more sense to land at an ice machine far away from the action to ensure your safety. Thermal Fish have a lower chance of spawning, so keep fishing or searching ice machines until one shows up. You only need to collect one, so it’s not too annoying.

Deal damage to opponents with a harvesting tool (75)

This one is self-explanatory, but if you’re stuck, you can either earn credit by damaging an NPC or by attacking a downed player in a team-based mode. You can also complete this challenge by facing off against an opponent like you normally would, but this is tricky since they’ll likely have a weapon, making it difficult to survive the encounter. Though, if you land alongside an opponent and immediately start attacking with the harvesting tool, you’ll at least make some progress toward this challenge. After you’ve dealt 75 damage, you’ll complete the quest.

Eliminate IO forces within a single match (3)

Map of Fortress in Fortnite

The tricky part about this quest is that you have to defeat three IO guards in a single match, which can be challenging if you aren’t prepared. There are a number of places across the map that contain IO guards, but we like heading to The Fortress since there are lots of hiding spots there. We recommend looting up, grabbing shields and weapons before engaging. Then, once you’re ready, take out the first IO guard and make sure you’ve got cover around you. At this point, any nearby IO guards will aggro and come toward you, so try taking them out from afar so you don’t get overwhelmed. After you’ve defeated the third IO guard, you’ll complete the challenge.

Get seconds of airtime after being hit by a shockwave grenade (3)

The hardest part about this challenge is actually getting your hands on a shockwave grenade, but thankfully, there are a few ways to get them. The easiest way is to buy them for 36 gold bars from Quackling, located inside a small cabin on the north side of Camp Cuddle. You can also acquire shockwave grenades from chests and Supply Drops, and also as floor loot. Once you have one, throw it on the ground directly beneath you, and you’ll be launched into the air for around three seconds. You can also stand on the roof of a building to launch yourself off and ensure you’ll be in the air for at least three seconds.

Travel in the air with a jetpack (100)

Jetpacks have been re-added to Fortnite as part of the season 2 update. These can be found inside the large airships across the map. They are found hanging on walls by doors that lead to the outside areas. There are usually multiple jetpacks inside the airships, so if someone grabs one first, just look around by different doors that lead outside. After you get a jetpack, jump off the airship, and double-tap the Jump button to utilize it. Thankfully, you don’t need to have traveled 100 meters within one jump or within the same match to complete this quest.

Visit gas stations in a Battlebus (3)

Map of gas stations in Fortnite.

This quest isn’t too tricky, but you do need to know where to find the various gas stations around the map, as well as a drivable Battlebus. As shown on the map above (thanks,, there are numerous gas stations scattered around the island. To find a Battlebus, make your way to the south side of Synapse Station, and you should see one parked in between the buildings. Then, drive the bus to three gas stations and keep in mind that you don’t need to visit all of them in a single match. If you only manage to get one or two, you can pick up where you left off in a separate match.

How to mod weapons in Fortnite

It seems like each week something new is added to Fortnite. It could be something as simple as skins to limited-time modes, mechanics, and more. One thing you can always count on being there is the weapons, although even those do cycle in and out of the game. Normally, weapons would only be differentiated by their rarity tier, but now you can use new weapon mods to give your favorite gun a more personal feel during a match. That said, finding and actually installing these mods isn't easy to figure out in the heat of a match, so we'll give you the rundown on how to mod your weapons before your next drop from the battle bus.
How weapon mods work

Fortnite's weapon mods come in a variety of types, such as scopes, larger magazines, barrels, and underbarrels. In total there are currently 11 mods you can pick from across those categories, however, you can only install one in each, assuming you can afford it. Here's a full list as of the time of writing:

How to unlock the Holiday Boxy outfit in Lego Fortnite
A lego character wearing presents.

You can count on basically every big online game to have some sort of holiday event going on. Despite Lego Fortnite only just releasing this month, it is still getting in on the holiday fun at least a little bit. There are no major additions, modes, or special events, however, you can get yourself a cool new Holiday Boxy outfit for your character. While free and easy to get, it does take some time and commitment. Since you've been so good all year long, we'll fill you in on how to get the Holiday Boxy outfit before it disappears.
How to get the Holiday Boxy outfit

This festive outfit is part of the Winterfest event Epic Games is hosting in Fortnite. Because it's primarily focused on that game, not just Lego Fortnite, this skin can be used in both games, like most others. Don't worry, you don't have to do any Fortnite challenges to unlock it if you aren't a fan of that game. To unlock Holiday Boxy, all you need to do is launch Fortnite and go into the Quest menu. Navigate to the Daily Gifts section and look through the list of available gifts to claim the Holiday Boxy outfit. New gifts are added each day regardless of whether or not you log in every single day. The only restriction is that you must log in and claim this reward during Winterfest 2023, which will end on January 2, 2024. So long as you log in once before then, you are able to claim all the free gifts.

Fortnite’s new modes are fun, but don’t sleep on Battle Royale’s great update
Solid Snake aiming a pistol out of a box in Fortnite.

Fortnite is literally the gift that keeps on giving. With so many updates bringing big changes to the game, I don't blame anyone that can no longer keep up with the live-service juggernaut. How could you after Epic recently added a full Rocket League spinoff, a recreation of Rock Band, and a Minecraft-like Lego adventure to the mix? For me, though, those can't completely overshadow the classic Battle Royale playlist that made Fortnite such a hit in the first place -- especially since that mode got some great updates of its own in its latest chapter.
