Fortnite week 9 challenge guide: Camp Cod location and where to stoke campfires | Season 3

Week 9 challenges are live for Fortnite, and one of them requires you to stoke campfires at a location called Camp Cod. It’s an easy enough challenge, but since Camp Cod isn’t listed on the map, you might be wondering where it’s located. The challenge itself requires you to stoke three campfires total, so in this guide, we’ll show you where they are and include some tips for making it as easy as possible.

Here’s how to stoke campfires at Camp Cod in Fortnite.

Camp Cod’s location

The first thing you’ll need to do is to locate Camp Cod. It can be found on the southeastern-most island, south of Catty Corner. The nice thing about this area is that it’s not typically busy, so you shouldn’t have much trouble getting the challenge finished. Though, we do still recommend bringing at least one buddy with you, just in case. Someone else might be trying to complete the same challenge, so it’s best to err on the side of caution.

How to stoke campfires

Stoking a campfire requires you to light it by pressing Square on PS4 or X on Xbox One. In order to stoke, you’ll need wood, and the fire campfire will actually tell you how much is needed. By default, some wood should already be placed in the campfire, so you should only need 30 additional pieces of wood to stoke it after it’s lit. There are plenty of trees around this area, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding wood. You’ll have to interact with the campfire twice — once to light it and again to stoke, so make sure you do both very quickly.

If you don’t, the fire will burn all the wood after you light it and you’ll need to find 300 plus an additional 30 pieces of wood to stoke the campfire. In short, just make sure you light the campfire and quickly stoke it afterward so it counts. After you stoke the fire, it should erupt slightly, which is an indication that it counted for you. There’s also a benefit to stoking campfires outside of completing a challenge — it will heal you, so make sure you keep that in mind if you need a quick boost in the middle of a firefight.

The first campfire (they can be completed in any order) is found pretty much in the center of the island. You’ll find a chest by it, along with a yellow umbrella and some chairs. Lots of trees can be found nearby, so remember to chop them down if you need some wood.

The second campfire is located on the eastern side of Camp Cod, just south of the large structure. You’ll find a couple of chairs nearby that look like they’ve seen better days. The bookshelf close to the building can be chopped for some wood, but you’re better off using the surrounding trees, instead.

Campfire 3

The final campfire is found on the easternmost side of Camp Cod on a dock by the water. Make sure you bring some wood with you since there isn’t much nearby. If this is your third and final campfire, you’ll get credit for completing the challenge, along with 35,000 XP. Not bad for less than two minutes of work!

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.

Fortnite: Where to find wolves and how to tame them
Wolf in Fortnite.

As part of a recent Fortnite challenge, players are required to find and tame wolves -- a mechanic that has been in the game for a long time. The thing is, finding wolves can be a bit inconsistent, making this quest a bit trickier than you'd expect. The other thing is that -- once you find a wolf -- taming them can also be a chore, so players are likely struggling to complete this quest.

In this guide, we'll show you where to find wolves and how to tame them in Fortnite.

The big day is finally here: It's time to witness Fracture, the Fortnite Chapter 3 finale event. Epic Games recently revealed more details about the event in a blog post, letting players and content creators know what to expect and how to prepare for it.

Epic took fans by surprise during the Fortnite Championship Series Invitational tournament last week with the announcement that Fortnite Chapter 3 will end a year earlier than the last two, providing just a teaser card and very little information about the finale event other than the December 3 launch date. Today, though, the company released key art for the event and extra details for how it will go forward. Here's what you need to know so you don't miss the event.
