Fortnite Fortnitemares challenge guide: Where to find a broom and travel 100 meters

As you make your way through this year’s Fortnitemares challenges in Fortnite, you’ll come across one that requires you to travel 100 meters on a broom. The game doesn’t tell you where to find one or how it works, however, so you might need to be pointed in the right direction. That’s where we come in!

In this guide, we’ll show you where to find a broom in Fortnite, how to travel 100 meters, and include tips for completing the challenge as easily as possible.

Where to find a broom

The first thing you need to do in order to finish this challenge is to find a broom. We recommend attempting this in Team Rumble, as you’ll have a little more forgiveness in terms of respawns and opponent placement. Keep in mind, however, that you can complete this challenge in battle royale mode as well. Either way, boot up a match and head to the location in the image above, just northwest of Salty Springs. Here, you’ll find a spooky house next to a barrel with some broomsticks in it. Search the barrel and then equip the broom to use it. This isn’t the only location you can find the broomsticks, but it’s a relatively safe area that should be free from other players.

If you do happen to come across someone else, do your best to take them out before they grab a broom. You might have to check another location if someone else grabbed the one you were aiming for. There are broomsticks to the north of Lazy Lake, south of Slurpy Swamp, southeast of Catty Corner, and north of Doom’s Domain. Once you’ve got your hands on it, you’ll be ready to fly!

How to travel 100 meters on the broom

To use the broomstick, simply press the right trigger. This will shoot you up in the sky and allow you to glide around. Because of how the component works, you’ll want to position yourself at the top of a hill when you use the broom, which will provide for more flight time. Otherwise, if you’re on flat land, you’ll probably have to give it a second try, as you might not have enough air time. The nice thing is that you don’t need to travel 100 meters in one go — it’s cumulative. We also recommend jumping before pressing the trigger. That way, you’re getting the most out of your travel time.

The other important thing to note is that there’s a cooldown timer on using the broom. It’s only 20 seconds, but keep this in mind if you plan on flying your broom around enemies, as they might take you out while you wait. Check out the video above for reference on how to complete the challenge quickly. Once you’ve flown 100 meters, you’ll complete the challenge and be rewarded with 40,000 XP. If you die or don’t manage to travel 100 meters before the match is over, simply give it another try and you’ll pick up where you left off.

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.

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.
