Fortnite Delta-One quests and how to complete them

The latest Fortnite challenges are based on the Gears of War series and are called Delta-One quests. Completing these quests rewards you with a nifty Gears of War spray and some XP, so they’re well worth completing, especially since they aren’t too difficult. A handful of them require you to visit specific locations on the map, while others are simply tied to regular things you’d do while playing.

Here, we’ll detail all the new Delta-One quests, with guides on getting through them all in Fortnite.

Delta-One quest guide

Collect COG Tags (3)

Map of COG tags in Fortnite.

There are 10 COG tags scattered around the island, as shown on the map above. For the purposes of this challenge, you only need to collect three of them, so pick a set of tags that are close to one another. For instance, the one at Sanctuary, followed by the two at The Daily Bugle are close together.

Crouch Behind Barrier (1)

Gears of War barrier in Fortnite.

This challenge is a callback to the Gears of War games. Across the map are hidden barriers with the GOW logo on them. There are barriers at the following locations:

  • Logjam Lumberyard
  • Sleepy Sound
  • Coney Crossroads
  • Condo Canyon
  • Greasy Grove

We like the one at Greasy Grove, which is on the south side of this area, right next to the garage by the gas station. Simply walk right next to it and crouch to earn credit for this one. You only need to crouch behind one barrier.

Damage an Opponent with Melee Attack (1)

Melee weapon in Fortnite.

This one is self-explanatory, but we do have an easy method for those having trouble. Play a team-based mode and then down a player with the weapon of your choice. Then, approach them and finish them off with your pickaxe to complete this challenge with ease.

Do Shotgun Damage to an Opponent (1)

Make sure you loot thoroughly as you play and eventually you’ll come across a shotgun. If you’re decent with a shotgun, this challenge will come easy. But otherwise, use the same method as above: Down a player and finish them off with the shotgun to earn credit.

Collect Thrashball Memorabilia (3)

Thrashball locations in Fortnite.

The final quest requires you to collect three pieces of Thrashball Memorabilia. The easiest way to do this is to land right in the middle of the island as shown on the map above. From north to south, you’ll find the Thrashball Poster, Thrashball, and the Foam Finger. Grab all three and you’ll complete this challenge easily.

How to launch fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite
Launching fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite.

The week 2 Fortnite Coachella quests are live now, and while a lot of them are straightforward, one seems to have caused some confusion for many players. The quest is for launching fireworks at Coachella Island, and as expected, the game doesn't necessarily specify how to complete the objective. In this guide, we'll show you how to launch fireworks at Coachella in Fortnite.
Visit Coachella Island

The first step is to actually make your way to Coachella Island. You cannot complete this quest during a normal match and instead must head into a Creator Made Island. To do so, you'll need to head to Island Code from the game mode menu and utilize the code 5449-4207-1280. Then, launch into a match on Coachella Island.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

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.
