Fortnite Season 3 week 10 challenge: How to collect fireflies in the Weeping Woods

Week 10 of Fortnite‘s third season is among us and, of course, it comes with a new wave of challenges to complete. In total, there are eight to finish — ranging from taking out enemies at specific locations, dealing a certain amount of damage with SMGs or shotguns, and even one for dancing on a mountain. There’s also a challenge for collecting fireflies in the Weeping Woods location, which is what we’re going to help you with in this guide.

Whether you’re having trouble locating this area, finding the fireflies, or staying alive long enough to collect them — this guide will give you all the tips and tricks you’ll need to get through it. Here’s how to collect fireflies from the Weeping Woods in Fortnite.

Where to find Weeping Woods

Weeping Woods is somewhat of a less populated area, as it’s not as jam-packed with buildings to explore for goodies. You’ll find it to the southwest of The Authority (the island in the middle of the map), and north of the Slurpy Swamp. Thankfully, this area is labeled on the map. As its name suggests, Weeping Woods is full of trees and has much more of a nature vibe than many of the other areas. Here, you’ll find a couple of log cabins, a playground for kids, and some fireflies for you to collect.

It’s recommended to land in this location straight away, but do be cautious of other players trying to do the same. If you see them, try to land out of their line of sight and quickly grab a weapon nearby to defend yourself. We opted to land by the cabins in the middle of this area, close to the playground so we could go inside to find loot.

How to find fireflies

Assuming no one is nearby, go ahead and run over to the water in front of the cabins. Here’s a great spot to look out for the fireflies. You’ll be able to see them flickering, and they usually come in packs. If one is close to you, the game will prompt you to collect it. We had luck finding fireflies by water, but if you can’t seem to get them to spawn, run around the area while looking for the flicker and you should see some in no time.

The other thing to mention is that the fireflies are easier to see at night, so if you’re not able to find them right away, give it some time and wait for it to be dark out. We also noticed that more seemed to spawn when it was dark, as well.

Since this challenge just went live, you’ll probably encounter more players in this area than normal, so it’s always best to bring a friend with you while you look for fireflies. You don’t need to find them all in one match, so even if you only grab one, your progress will save and you can come by next time to finish it up. Though, from our experience, we were able to complete this challenge in one game — in a couple of minutes, thanks to the frequent spawn rate of the fireflies.

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.

The best weapons in Fortnite during Chapter 3, Season 4
New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.
