Fortnite Chapter 3 guide: Season 3, week 7 quests and how to complete them

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 is still underway, and for week 7, Epic Games has even more quests for you to complete. The new challenges aren’t necessarily hard, but many of them are a little quirky and might be confusing if you aren’t a frequent Fortnite player. Some are tied to new seasonal mechanics, while others simply require downright luck.

In this guide, we’ll show you how to complete all the new week 7 challenges in Fortnite.

Season 3, week 7 quest guide

Crack opponents’ shields (3)

You’ll likely earn credit for this one by simply playing normally. It helps if you attempt it later on in a match, as players will be more likely to have shields. But as long as you deal enough damage to completely deplete an enemy’s shield (so they start taking health damage), you’ll learn credit for this quest. Do this three times to complete it.

Deal damage to airborne opponents (1)

This quest is a little tricky because it’s luck-based, but there is a tactic you can use to improve your chances. Land on the rooftops of Titled Towers (preferably when the Battle Bus flies directly overhead to ensure as many players land here as possible) and quickly grab a weapon. As soon as you do, look up and — with a little luck — you should be able to take a shot at an enemy before they land. If you try this method a couple of times and don’t have any luck, you’ll have to attempt this by playing naturally.

Destroy structures with a Baller (20)

Ballers in Rave Cave in Fortnite.

You’ll find a bunch of Ballers in and around Rave Cave. Remember, these are spherical vehicles that can be used to grapple around the map. After you grab a Baller, maneuver through different structures such as walls, street signs, and pretty much anything in your path. To make it as efficient as possible, grapple onto an object and launch yourself toward it (using the boost helps to propel yourself forward with tremendous force).

Keep the first weapon you collect in your inventory until you reach the top 20 players (1)

Tower with chest at Tilted Towers in Fortnite.

For this one, you’ll need to play as passively as possible, so hopefully you can stick to the insides of buildings without getting ambushed. Do your best to avoid engagements and even use vehicles to get away from hot spots, if possible. We recommend collecting a decent weapon at first — that way, it’s at least somewhat useful. There’s no use in grabbing something you can’t even use, especially since it’ll take up a precious inventory spot.

Perform an aerial 360 spin while dismounting a Wolf or Boar (1)

Large, open field in Fortnite.

What a ridiculous quest. For this one, we advise heading to the east of Shuffled Shrines, where you’ll usually find a Boar or two. Mount a Boar by jumping on its back, and as soon as you straddle it, you can jump off. Make sure you jump in the air with the Boar first to give you enough room to spin all the way around. At the peak of the jump, press the Jump button once more to dismount while tilting the analog stick to the left or right. Make sure your sensitivity is turned up to make it easier to spin a full rotation. As long as you’ve turned 360 degrees, you’ll complete the challenge.

Stop the music at the Rave Cave (3)

Speakers in Rave Cave in Fortnite.

Inside Rave Cave, there are three spots where music comes from. Look out for the large speaker systems all around the inside of the cave and destroy them. Go to the main area inside and you’ll see a massive DJ area by a dance floor. On either side of the stage is a large metal structure with yellow speakers that need to be destroyed. Then, head to the north of this area to a circular exit (by the rollercoaster track), where you’ll find the third speaker next to a Slurp barrel.

Throw different Consumable Pickups in a single match (3)

As you play normally, you’ll likely come across a slew of foragable items, which are typically pieces of food like fruits or vegetables. For the best results, we recommend landing around Synapse Station or Chonker’s Speedway. Once you have one, use your Left trigger to aim, and Right trigger to throw them. Do this a total of three times to complete the quest.

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.
