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.

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 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.
