The first thing you should do is boot up a match in Team Rumble — that way, you can respawn if you die. It’s also easier to see in Team Rumble, as Battle Royale is currently covered in a thick fog during the game’s Fortnitemares event. Land at The Fortilla (located to the southwest of the map) and look for a speed boat. There are multiple in this area, so even if most of your team decides to go for the challenge, you’ll still probably be able to find a boat for yourself. We had luck finding a boat in the center island of this area, but there are several other boats around it.

Next, you should be familiar with the path you need to take to get to The Authority (which is labeled as “The Ruins” during this Fortnitemares event). The Authority is the island in the center of the map and can be accessed by boat from The Fortilla. First, make your way to the north side of Slurpy Swamps and take the path through Weeping Woods. If you keep going east, you’ll dead end at The Authority. Keep in mind, you don’t even need to get out of the boat for the challenge to register.

Here’s a video of us reaching the goal in under two minutes.

As long as you stay in the water and follow the path while continuously mashing the boost button (Circle on PS4, B on Xbox One, and A on Nintendo Switch), getting there within four minutes shouldn’t be an issue. Remember, there are other paths you can take to reach The Authority from The Fortilla, but if you go through Slurpy Swamp and Weeping Woods, you’ll get there faster. It’s also worth noting that this challenge stacks with the other one for traveling 20,000 meters in a vehicle, so you should attempt this challenge while you go for the other. Once you roll up to The Authority, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and will be rewarded with 25,000 XP for your troubles.

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.

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.
