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.

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.

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.

Finding the various lightsabers is a little tricky since their locations are random for each match. To find them, you need to visit holograms of either Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, or Darth Maul around the map. All three appear during any given match, but their locations are random.

Where to find Republic Chests in Fortnite
Republic Chest

Star Wars is once again taking over Fortnite with the brand-new Find the Force event, which brings a ton of new quests, items, and cosmetics to the popular battle royale. If you want to complete the full event reward track and earn all of the skins, one of the quests you'll need to knock out is opening a Republic Chest. Of course, you may want to seek these out each game anyways, as opening them will reward you with a new DC-15 Blaster, which is an immensely strong firearm that has infinite ammo and excellent range. Here's where to find Republic Chests.

Republic Chests can be found at three locations on the Chapter 4 Season 2 map. You'll find some located about halfway between The Citadel and Shattered Slabs, some to the west of Slappy Shores, and some by the road southwest of Frenzy Fields. Land at one of these spots and search the white tent-like buildings there for the chests.

Each Republic Chest contains one of the new DC-15 Blaster firearms alongside a selection of random support or healing items. You'll commonly see Medkits, Small Shield Potions, and Chug Splashes pop out, so you shouldn't have much trouble getting prepared for battle from the items you get from the Republic Chests.

Launching fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite.

The week 2 Fortnite Coachella quests are live now, and while a lot of them are straightforward, one seems to have caused some confusion for many players.
