Fortnite season 4 week 3 challenge guide: Where to find Panther’s Prowl

Fortnite‘s Marvel-themed season 4 is still going on, and this week’s challenges offer a healthy blend of combat, exploration, and finding collectibles. One of the more mysterious week 3 challenges of season 4 is one that sends you to a location called Panther’s Prowl. This is an unmarked location on the map, so you might be struggling to find it. Fortunately, there isn’t anything fancy you need to do to complete this challenge. Simply set foot in this location and you’ll get credit for completing it.

In this guide, we’ll pinpoint the location of Panther’s Prowl for you, and walk you through finding it so you don’t have to search for it yourself. Here’s how to find Panther’s Prowl in Fortnite during season 4 week 3.

Where to find Panther’s Prowl

Panther’s Prowl is less of a location and more of a monument than anything else. It’s a huge statue of — you guessed it — a panther, and it’s in reference to the Black Panther character from the Marvel comics. Panther’s Prowl is located to the west of Misty Meadows in a large circular area that has just appeared for week 3. Although this area is home to a new challenge, you’ll likely have the place to yourself, as most players are off trying to take out Iron Man at Stark Industries for a different week 3 challenge that we covered here.

As soon as you’re able to, jump out of the bus and set your marker on this grayed-out location to the west of Misty Meadows. Make your way over to Panther’s Prowl, and if possible, try to land on top of the statue so you can get a great view of everything around you. There’s also a chest in the panther’s mouth you can grab if you’ve got enough wood to make a ramp to get up there. You’ll also hear Wakanda-themed music when you arrive, so keep your ears open when you land there.

Simply touch down on this area and you’ll get credit for completing the challenge and will be rewarded with 25,000 XP (which is oddly more than you get for completing other combat-related challenges, but who are we to question Epic Games?). In the video above, you can see how quickly and easily you’ll be able to complete this challenge, since Panther’s Prowl is located in a less busy area. Even if there are enemies nearby, you can still quickly complete the challenge, as long as you land in this location.

The panther statue at Panther’s Prowl was placed here in honor of the recent passing of Chadwick Boseman, who played the Black Panther in the MCU films.

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.
