Fortnite rainbow rentals challenge tips

Fortnite Rainbow Rentals

For this challenge, players are tasked with finding three different locations on the island and dancing at them. Before we get into the locations of these landmarks, there are some tips that you should know going into it.

For one, you don’t have to dance at all three locations in the same match but they are all required for completing the challenge. This means that you can take your time and just aim for at least one per match and you can get this done rather quickly.

You should also do this in the Team Rumble mode per usual as it offers respawns, more time to explore, and fewer enemies to worry about. If you really want to get this done quickly, feel free to turn on Party Assist and your teammates can complete it with you.

All dance locations

Fortnite Rainbow Rentals Locations

There are three spots that we need to head to: Rainbow rentals, the beach bus, and a lake canoe. These are very specific spots that are known as landmarks on the island. You can look at our map above for the general location of the required places and find a detailed look below.

The first spot that we need to head to is found directly southwest of Holly Hedges. There is a small beach in this area that is also west of Weeping Woods and northwest of Slurpy Swamp.

Rainbow rentals is a row of different colored beach houses. Get close enough to the center house and do whatever dance emote you like to complete the first part of this challenge.

Beach bus location

Fortnite Beach Bus

The next location is the beach bus. This retired battle bus can be found on a small beach just west of Steamy Stacks. There is a small beach here where you will find this old bus. Like before, all you need to do is get close enough to the landmark and then do a little dance emote.

Lake canoe location

Fortnite Lake Canoe

The third and final location that we need to dance at is lake canoe. This isn’t just any canoe either as it is an actual landmark location of a large lake that has a ton of canoes around it. It is located on the eastern side of the map north of Retail Row and southwest of Dirty Docks.

This is a larger area than the other two landmarks so we do recommend heading to the center island of the little lake and doing your dance there. This will ensure that the dance counts for the challenge so you don’t waste your time. Look for the notifications in the top left corner of the screen that you completed it.

Fortnite rainbow rentals dance challenge reward

Like the challenges last week and every other week in chapter 2, season 1, the rewards are all the same for most challenges. You will get 52,000 experience for completing the rainbow rentals challenge and for all of the other basic ones. However, if you do at least nine of them, you will also unlock the new gold style for the 8-Ball skin.

This is difficult, even for veteran players, as it's possible to get through a match without coming across 10 players.

Fortnite: Where to find wolves and how to tame them
Wolf in Fortnite.

As part of a recent Fortnite challenge, players are required to find and tame wolves -- a mechanic that has been in the game for a long time. The thing is, finding wolves can be a bit inconsistent, making this quest a bit trickier than you'd expect. The other thing is that -- once you find a wolf -- taming them can also be a chore, so players are likely struggling to complete this quest.

In this guide, we'll show you where to find wolves and how to tame them in Fortnite.

Fortnite: Oathbound Chests locations

One of the core pillars to winning a round of Fortnite is knowing where all the best loot is. To keep things interesting, Epic continues to change up what loot is in the game, where it spawns, and even how the map is designed. For Fortnite Chapter 4, not only is the map completely revamped but a new type of chest called Oathbound Chests have been introduced. These new chests can give you some of the best loot currently in the game, but only if you know where to find them.
