Fortnite season 3 week 7 challenges: Where to collect stone at Rapid’s Rest

Fortnite‘s season 3 week 7 challenge for collecting stone in an area called Rapid’s Rest is sort of tricky because this location isn’t depicted on the map. You’ve probably scanned the entire map with a fine-tooth comb trying to find it, with no luck. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find Rapid’s Rest, how to complete the challenge, and what you get for finishing it.

Here’s how to complete Fortnite‘s season 3 week 7 challenge for gathering stone in Rapid’s Rest.

The hardest part about this challenge is simply finding the Rapid’s Rest location. Don’t you just hate when the game asks you to go to locations that aren’t labeled on the map? Not to worry, though — we’ll show you exactly where it is. To find it, head to the river to the east of Lazy Lake. Normally, landing right at Lazy Lake isn’t the best idea since it can be sort of busy there, but if you head to the river just east of the large structure, you should be safe. Use the image above for reference.

You’ll want to look for an area with large boulders that appear on the bank of the river. Across the way is a small building with some common loot inside. From our experience, we were able to gather all the stone we needed with no interruption from other players, but to be safe, make sure you scout the area a little beforehand.

How to complete the challenge

Once you’re there, all you need to do is gather 300 stone from the rocks and boulders in this area. For us, it took around five to six boulders to complete the challenge. Remember, you must gather stone only from this area for it to count. There’s plenty of stone for you to be able to gather 300 in one go, and it should only take a few minutes.

The other thing you might want to do if you aren’t comfortable is land somewhere else with better loot before going to Rapid’s Rest. It’s not necessary since this is a low-traffic area, but if someone else is also trying to complete the challenge at the same time, you might get caught off guard, especially if all you have is your pickaxe. There are some low-tier weapons nearby, though, so you should be okay. Either way, smash those rocks and you’ll be good to go. Hopefully, by the time you’re finished gathering stone, you’ll be able to make your way back to the fight without the circle closing in on you.

Rewards for completing challenge

As with most weekly challenges, you’ll get 35,000 XP for completing this one. It’s not a ton, but considering how simple the challenge is to complete, you shouldn’t ignore it. And with that, you’ll be ready to move on to some of the other challenges!

The best places to land in Fortnite (Chapter 5, Season 2)

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death.

As part of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one is best comes down to your skill and preference. With that in mind, here are the best places to land in Fortnite for veterans, beginners, and everyone in between.
The best places to land in Fortnite
Before jumping into the list of the best places to land in Fortnite, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot. they also typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.
