Season 2, week 1 quest guide

Use the Repair Torch To Fix a Vehicle (200)

As you play, keep your eyes peeled for a repair torch, which can be found as floor loot or in toolboxes during season 2. After you’ve acquired one, make your way toward a vehicle, which are usually found in heavily populated areas around the map, such as Tilted Towers or Chonker’s Speedway. Then, shoot the vehicle a little to cause damage, and then use the repair tool to repair it. Make sure you repair 200 HP worth to complete this challenge.

Spend Bars (500)

Bars are acquired in a number of ways, including opening safes, defeating enemies, and completing bounties. After you’ve acquired some bars, visit NPCs around the map to buy items — preferably Exotic Weapons, which typically cost more. You don’t need to spend 500 gold bars in one go, but you’ll earn credit for this challenge much faster if you buy more-expensive items.

Search Chests on IO Airships (3)

Airships are now present on the Fortnite island as part of season 2. To complete this challenge, you need to search three chests on an airship, so make sure you land at one of these floating vessels right away. They can be found at Condo Canyon, Rocky Reels, The Daily Bugle, and Command Cavern, so make a beeline toward these spots to complete the challenge.

Mantle Onto a Ledge Within 3 Seconds of Sprinting (3)

New this season is the ability to mantle up onto ledges. To complete this challenge, you need to use the new tactical sprint ability and then mantle up onto a ledge three times. For best results, we recommend attempting this one with a building or man-made wall rather than a natural piece of land, as the mantling can be finicky. Jump up next to a surface and the game will give you the prompt to mantle.

Launch Yourself 150 Meters from a Siege Cannon (150)

Each of the aforementioned airships around the map feature a Siege Cannon, which can be used to fire projectiles — or even yourself. Approach the cannon and interact with it, then load yourself into the device before launching yourself into the air. You need to cover a distance of at least 150 meters, which should be easy as long as you arc your shot.

Deal Damage to IO Forces (500)

You’ll find IO Forces at the airships around the map. What you need to do is land on one and then enter it, where you’ll find multiple IO Forces. To complete this challenge, you must deal 500 HP worth of damage, so make sure you collect decent weapons and enough shields beforehand so you’re prepared.

Collect a Drum Shotgun and a Combat SMG in a Single Match (2)

This one is a bit luck-based, but if you explore and loot thoroughly, you should be able to complete the challenge with ease. We recommend landing at a busy area like Tilted Towers to begin your search. Make sure you loot every chest you find, and you’ll eventually stumble upon the Drum Shotgun and Combat SMG. These must be collected within the same match.

Every time Fortnite changes up the map, it becomes a whole new experience when checking out the new points of interest (POIs) and best places to land. With chapter 5 bringing some of the most dramatic changes in the map's history, a ton of secrets are out there on the island waiting to be discovered, such as a very lucrative cave. Those who have managed to wander into this hidden alcove have been rewarded with a huge stash of loot, making it a well-guarded secret among those in the know. We can't guarantee you'll survive long enough to grab all the valuables inside, but knowing where the secret cave is will at least give you and your squad a fighting chance.

The secret cave is tucked along the eastern coast of the map to the northeast of Hazeyhills and southeast of Grand Glacier as seen on the map above.

All stash locations in Alan Wake 2 and how to open them
Alan drenched in green light in Alan Wake 2.

FBI agent Saga Anderson and her partner, Alex Casey, are called into Bright Falls to investigate a murder committed by a strange group calling themselves the Cult of the Trees. These dangerous cultists are your main enemy in Alan Wake 2, and they put up quite a fight despite mostly using basic tools as weapons. They seem mindless and primitive, but the fact that they have a series of Cultist Stashes hidden all around the world suggests otherwise. These treasure troves are very well hidden, and they're protected with a small puzzle to try and prevent those who may stumble upon one from grabbing all the goodies inside. You'll find yourself short on supplies essentially all the time in Alan Wake 2, so scooping up some extra ammo and batteries is always welcome. Here is where you can find all the Cultist Stashes in Alan Wake 2 and how to open them.
All Cultist Stash locations
There are a total of 21 Cultist Stashes to find and unlock in Alan Wake 2. Each zone has its own set to find, and they all have different puzzles you need to solve to open them. None are missable, but some can't be obtained until you make story progress or get specific tools.
Bright Falls Cult Stashes

The first Cult Stash you can find comes as soon as you reach the town of Bright Falls for the first time. Instead of going straight to your destination down the block, turn around and head toward the dead end. Behind the truck will be a big locked box. To open this one, all you need to do is play a little game of Simon Says. The keypad will flash three buttons in a sequence that you simply need to repeat to open the box and grab the loot.
