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.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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.

Warzone 2.0 Season 3 Reloaded has me optimistic about the shooter’s future
Characters from Warzone 2.0 in the ranked mode.

Since Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0's launch, Activision has slowly made improvements to the shooter, with each season being more fun than the last. It's been a slow burn, but with the launch of Season 3 Reloaded, Warzone 2.0 finally feels like it's in a decent spot. There's still much to improve upon, but given the sheer number of fixes and quality-of-life features that have been added with the latest season, I'm finally optimistic about the future of this game.
Ranked is surprisingly fun

The most notable addition to Season 3 Reloaded is Ranked, a mode that has been highly requested since the original Warzone. This features a robust ranking system that gives players a greater incentive to improve and perform well, while also adding a much more competitive feel. Since the original Warzone days, there has always been a lack of incentive to improve. Sure, winning a match is a rush, but after pouring hundreds of hours into the game, it's easy to get bored. With Warzone Ranked, climbing the ranks places you into different categories, from Bronze all the way to Iridescent and Top 250, while also yielding cosmetic rewards along the way. Each subsequent ranking places you into slightly more skilled lobbies, adding a bit more challenge as you climb.
