Fortnite chapter 3 quest guide: Season 3, week 0 quests and how to complete them

As part of the first week of Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3: Vibin’, Epic Games has a new batch of challenges for you to complete, most of which are tied to new features. Technically, although this is the first week of the season, Epic Games is referring to it as “Zero Week,” since the season began on a Sunday, with week 1 beginning June 9.

Nonetheless, we’ve got all the details of the first batch of challenges for Fortnite chapter 3, season 3, including guides for getting through them as easily as possible.

Season 3, week 0 quest guide

Collect a Hammer Assault Rifle and a Two-Shot Shotgun in a single match (2)

For this one, you’ll want to loot as much as possible since there isn’t a guaranteed way to get your hands on both weapons. However, they aren’t that rare, so if you land in a high-traffic area with a team and open as many chests as you can, you’re bound to find both the Hammer Assault Rifle and a Two-Shot Shotgun. Just keep in mind, this must be done in a single match.

Interact with Sunbird or Moon Hawk and Rustler in a single match (2)

The wording for this challenge is a little unclear, but what you need to do is interact with either Sunbird or Moon Hawk, along with Rustler in one match. To be clear, Rustler is required, and then one of the other two NPCs. Rustler is located at Shifty Shafts and Sunbird is found to the northeast of The Daily Bugle. We actually haven’t located Moon Hawk yet since the season just started, so, for the purposes of this challenge, simply visit both of the aforementioned areas on the map above, and talk with the NPCs in one match.

Jump on a wolf or boar’s back in different matches (2)

Boar pen in Fortnite.

As part of season 3, boars and wolves roam the map, and you need to ride them over the course of two matches. An easy way to find a boar is to visit the pen area just north of Shifty Shafts. They’re found inside a fenced-in area as shown in the image above. For this challenge, jump on a boar’s back and you’ll earn credit for one, so do it once again in a separate match to complete this quest.

Survive storm phases (10)

You’ll complete this challenge as you play naturally, but if you want to finish it quickly, just hide in a building somewhere toward the middle of the zone. If you do it this way, you’ll reach 10 storm circles in no time.

Plant or summon Reality Saplings using Reality Seeds (3)

This quest requires you to plant three Reality Seeds, which are found at Reality Falls. In this new area, you’ll see pink bulbs that can be destroyed — one of them is on the tree root above the body of water in this area. Destroy the bulb and Reality Seeds will pop out. Collect them, and use them to plant Reality Saplings. Keep in mind, you can only have one Reality Sapling planted at any given time, so if you lay an additional one down, it will replace the previous one. Plant a total of three and you’ll complete the challenge — just make sure you stay clear of other enemies. This is another cumulative challenge, so don’t worry if you don’t finish it in one match.

Travel 2,000 meters by Baller (2,000)

There are a few different areas that contain Ballers, which are essentially little controllable bubbles that can be used to travel around the map. If you enter Rave Cave from the south side, you’ll find Ballers sitting next to the Screwballer track. Simply travel around with the Baller and you’ll eventually cover 2,000 meters. Keep in mind, the Ballers have limited battery, so you might run out of juice before you can reach 2,000 meters traveled. Luckily, you don’t need to hit this milestone all in one match.

Visit Groovy Grove, Reality Falls, and Rave Cave (3)

We’ve seen quests like this one before. For this challenge, you need to visit the three new hubs: Rave Cave, Reality Falls, and Greasy Grove. They’re all close to one another so you can easily hit all three in one match. Though, if you only manage to get one or two, you can pick up progress in a separate match since it’s cumulative.

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.
