Fortnite season 4 week 10 challenge guide: Where to find chests at Upstate New York

Typically, the Fortnite challenges for opening chests in specific locations are pretty straightforward. However, with season 4 week 10, one challenge requires you to search chests at a location called Upstate New York — a spot that is not marked on the map. Since it’s unmarked, you might be unaware of where it is. But luckily, we’ve got all the details on how to find chests at this location, including tips for making it as easy and as efficient as possible for you.

Here’s how to search chests at Upstate New York in Fortnite.

Where to find Upstate New York

Upstate New York is actually the entire circular area that surrounds Stark Industries. As long as you’re within that circle, you’re in the right area, meaning there are plenty of chests to open as you play. We recommend avoiding hot spots like Stark Industries itself, but rather, going to the lesser-explored areas like Tony Stark’s lab in the cabin to the northeast, or other small buildings around this area. Start by booting up a Team Rumble match so you can respawn if you die. You can complete this challenge in Battle Royale, but it’s much harder due to the thick fog found in those modes during the Fortnitemares event.

Chest locations in Upstate New York


Above is the location of every chest in this area. As you can see, Stark Industries has the most chests, but it’s a deadly area because players tend to gravitate toward it. While you’re landing, you can survey the area and see if people are landing there and, if so, correct your path and head elsewhere. If you manage to land at Stark Industries with few players around, you’ll be in good shape, as there are around 25 chests in this location. But typically, you won’t have the place to yourself.

Instead, head to Tony Stark’s laboratory in the cabin on the east side of the lake in this area. If you break through the floor, you’ll find Iron Man’s lab and usually a chest or two, assuming no one else beat you to this location. In total, there are seven chests here, so you’ve got good odds of grabbing a few. With a little luck, you should find at least a couple of chests here, so then make your way southwest toward Stark Industries to find the rest. There’s a spot to the southwest that features four chests, and another two to the south of that — across the lake.

Use the map above to plan your route accordingly, and if the match finishes before you can find all seven, start up another and you’ll be able to pick up where you left off. After you’ve found all seven, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and earn 25,000 XP as a reward.

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.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

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 wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive 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 essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. 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.

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.
