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 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.
