Season 2, week 9 quest guide

Call in an Air Strike at The Collider or The Fortress (1)

Map of Fortress and The Collider in Fortnite.

Air Strikes appear as ground loot or from chests, so land at a busy area like Tilted Towers or Command Cavern and loot as much as you can. Be on the lookout for a small canister representing the Air Strike, which is a Legendary item. Once you have it, head to either The Fortress or The Collider, and make sure to throw the Air Strike canister in the center of the area. After the fire comes down, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge.

Drive a Battle Bus or Fly a Choppa to Command Cavern (1)

Map of Choppa locations in Fortnite.

Since the Battle Bus is so slow and clunky, we advise using a Choppa to complete this quest. Above is a map showing the locations of four Choppas, which spawn in fixed locations (thanks, Grab one of them and simply fly it to Command Cavern on the northwestern side of the island.

Emote at Different IO Airship Crash Sites (2)

Map of IO crash sites in Fortnite.

Off the coast of the east side of the island are two IO crash sites in the water. To complete this quest, visit each of them and emote while standing on top of the rubble. You don’t need to emote at both in the same match, thankfully.

Hit an Enemy Player with a Ranger Shotgun from over 50 Meters (1)

Each week features a quest like this one, so you should be used to how it works by now if you play often. Either way, you need to loot as much as possible until you find a Ranger Shotgun. Then, head to an area with lots of NPCs such as Command Cavern. Stand far back, ping the enemy, which reveals how far away they are, and fire away (assuming you’re at least 50 meters away). As long as you deal damage, you’ll earn credit for this one.

Repair a Vehicle at Synapse Station or at Chonker’s Speedway (200)

Your goal with this quest is to find a Repair Torch, which is essentially a blowtorch. You can find them at Synapse Station, Chonker’s Speedway, or any other area on the map. Once you have a repair tool, visit one of the aforementioned areas and deal damage to any vehicle nearby. You’ll find a lineup of cars right in the center of Chonker’s Speedway. After you’ve dealt damage to the vehicle, use the repair tool to fix 200 damage and you’ll complete the quest. If you visit Chonker’s Speedway, you should find enough vehicles to earn 200 repair points in a single match.

Shoot Out Tires on IO Vehicles (3)

Map of IO vehicle location in Fortnite.

If you land around Command Cavern, you should find plenty of IO vehicles at nearby stations. There’s one directly south of the main portion of Command Cavern, as indicated on the map above. Inside, there should be a chest with a weapon, but if you don’t find one, visit the main underground area to the north and you’ll likely come across something you can use. Then, inside this station, shoot three of the four tires to complete the challenge.

Use an Ascender and Deal Damage to Opponents Within 30 Seconds (100)

This quest is a lot easier than it sounds. First, head to Command Cavern, where you’ll find a massive airship. At the bottom of it, inside the underground area, you’ll find an Ascender, which is basically a rappel that can be used to reach the top of the airship. Interact with the Ascender and you’ll begin zipping up, then immediately jump off so you don’t take fall damage, and then quickly shoot a nearby NPC. Make sure you deal 100 damage and you’ll earn credit for this one.

How many skins are in Fortnite?
Renegade Runner Fortnite loading screen.

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!

Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded has me optimistic about the shooter’s future
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

Since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0's launch, Activision has slowly made improvements to the shooter, with each season being more fun than the last. It's been a slow burn, but with the launch of Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone 2.0 finally feels like it's in a decent spot. There's still much to improve upon, but given the sheer number of fixes and quality-of-life features that have been added with the latest season, I'm finally optimistic about the future of this game.
Ranked is surprisingly fun

The most notable addition to Season 3 Reloaded is Ranked, a mode that has been highly requested since the original Warzone. This features a robust ranking system that gives players a greater incentive to improve and perform well, while also adding a much more competitive feel. Since the original Warzone days, there has always been a lack of incentive to improve. Sure, winning a match is a rush, but after pouring hundreds of hours into the game, it's easy to get bored. With Warzone Ranked, climbing the ranks places you into different categories, from Bronze all the way to Iridescent and Top 250, while also yielding cosmetic rewards along the way. Each subsequent ranking places you into slightly more skilled lobbies, adding a bit more challenge as you climb.
