Season 4, week 7 quest guide

Damage opponents with pistols, harvesting tools, or grenades (500)

Using a pistol in Fortnite.

This one is a little tricky since you might not typically use pistols, harvesting tools, or grenades during a match. However, the Sidearm Pistol is actually severely underrated and deals tremendous damage, especially to the head. For this quest, you need to deal 500 damage with the aforementioned weapons, which will likely take multiple matches. Prioritize using the Sidearm Pistol if possible to make this quest much easier.

Damage opponents with ranged weapons while riding wildlife (200)

A ranged weapon is an assault rifle, sniper, or battle rifle. So, we recommend picking whichever you’re most comfortable with. We like the Cobra DMR, but as long as you can hit your shots, you can use any ranged weapon you’d like. The nice thing about this quest is that you can actually deal damage to NPCs and even Supply Llamas around the map, meaning you don’t have to strictly rely on shooting real players. After you’ve dealt 200 damage, you’ll complete this quest.

Deal damage to opponents at Loot Lake (200)

Map of Loot Lake in Fortnite.

Loot Lake is marked on the map above. This is typically a high-traffic area anyway, but now that it’s home to a quest, expect to come across even more players. There are a few different ways to complete this quest, such as by damaging NPCs, Loot Sharks, or real players. You don’t need to deal all 200 damage in one match.

Enter a Chrome Vortex (1)

The Chrome Vortex in Fortnite.

Chrome Vortexes are the massive tornadoes found in Chrome areas like Herald’s Sanctum. The map actually tells you where to find Chrome Vortexes, so be sure to check it to see where the closest one is. The best way to complete this quest is to land beside the Chrome Vortex after jumping from the Battle Bus. You simply need to touch the Vortex to earn credit for this one, so once the notification appears, you’re free to glide wherever you’d like.

Pick fruit from Reality Saplings (3)

A Reality Sapling in Fortnite.

Reality Saplings were introduced a couple of seasons ago, serving as an interesting mechanic that gives players items over the course of multiple matches. We recommend heading to the east of Rave Cave, where you’ll find a few Reality Saplings — but they’re still found in various spots around the map. Plant them in a safe spot, finish the match, and you should see some fruit on the tree.

Search Chrome Chests at Flutter Barn or Shiny Sound (5)

Shiny Sound in Fortnite.

Flutter Barn and Shiny Sound are marked on the map above, so do your best to land by those locations to prioritize opening Chrome Chests. You need to open five, which is certainly possible in one match, but don’t worry if you come up short, as this one is cumulative. Remember, you need to open Chrome Chests, not regular ones.

Use a Dial-A-Drop in different matches (3)

Dial-A-Drops are found in chests and as floor loot around the map and can be used to spawn a Drop from the sky. However, currently, these items are bugged and actually do not spawn in-game. It’s unclear if Epic Games will add them or simply replace the quest with something else, but for now, you can’t complete this one, sadly.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

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.
