Head back in time using our Fortnite season 10, week 3 rift zone challenge guide

The season 10, week 3 challenges have arrived in Fortnite, and the theme this week is called Worlds Collide. That’s appropriate seeing as the challenges we’ll be tackling this week involve Rift Zones, which are locations that take you back to a time when the Battle Royale map looked much different. We’ll be covering both normal and prestige Rift Zone missions, along with a quick explainer on what to expect.


But before we go into detail about what Rift Zones are and where you can find them, we’ll first go over all the weekly challenges players can find in Fortnite: Battle Royale this go around.

Visit a Rift Zone challenge explained

One of the big challenges this week is to visit a rift zone. To complete this challenge, you will first need to understand what a rift zone is. Rift zones were added with the release of season 10, and each week rifts appear and warp an existing named location to somewhere else.

This week a rift zone appeared at Mega Mall and took players back to Retail Row, the location it was known as before season nine. Your job is to visit one of these rift zones in a match, and considering how simple the normal challenge is, you can do it in any mode you like as it won’t take long to complete.

As for the prestige version, you are going to want to do this in any big team mode like Team Rumble to allow you enough time to complete the challenge. In addition, it’s best that you do both versions with teammates, if possible, since the places you’re going to go to are hot zones where lots of other players will be.

As of right now, there are only two locations that you can find a rift zone at. This could change throughout the course of the season as more are added but here is where you can find the current rift zone locations:

  • Tilted Town (formerly known as Neo Tilted)
  • Retail Row (formerly known as Mega Mall)

All you need to do is head to either of these locations and you will complete this challenge.

Once you have completed the normal mission, you can tackle the prestige mission that requires you to search five chests in rift zones. This doesn’t have to be in a single match and it can be spread between both Tilted Town and Retail Row.

We recommend doing this as a group with other players because there will be a lot of players heading to those two locations for these challenges.

How to find lightsabers in Fortnite
Character with lightsaber in Fortnite.

The latest Fortnite event is a massive Star Wars collaboration, and with it, comes a slew of new character skins, weapons, and quests. With it being a Star Wars collab, players can expect a new set of lightsabers to wield, which can be obtained during battle royale matches. But where can you find lightsabers and how do they work during the latest event? Here's what you need to know about finding lightsabers in Fortnite.
Where to find lightsabers

Finding the various lightsabers is a little tricky since their locations are random for each match. To find them, you need to visit holograms of either Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, or Darth Maul around the map. All three appear during any given match, but their locations are random.

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.
