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.

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.
