Fortnite season 4 week 7 challenge guide: Drive to Misty Meadows in 4 Minutes

For season 4 week 7, Fortnite is throwing another driving challenge at you, this time requiring you to drive from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than four minutes without getting out of the vehicle. This challenge is almost exactly like the one from week 5, which required you to drive from Slurpy Swamp to Catty Corner in less than four minutes. Four minutes might not sound like enough time, but if you follow the steps we provide in this guide, you’ll get to your destination with plenty of time to spare. Whether you’re running out of gas or having trouble coming up with the best route, this guide is sure to help.

Here’s how to drive from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than four minutes in Fortnite.

Despite the description clearly stating you must not get out of the vehicle, it seems like you can still get through the challenge even if you get out of your car. We aren’t sure if this is an error or if we experienced a glitch or if the description is wrong. Nonetheless, you might have a bit more leeway with this challenge than it seems. To start, land on the west side of Sweat Sands, right by the gas station. You’ll find a sports car here, and this is the vehicle you’ll need to complete the challenge. You might be able to use something else, but since your goal is to get to your destination quickly, go with the sports car.

Before you take off, stop at the gas station and fill up the vehicle. If you drive there without filling up, you won’t have enough gas, as the vehicle starts with around 37% of a full tank. Fill it up to 100% and then make your way to Misty Meadows. The game will actually notify you that you’ve started the challenge, which comes in handy. There’s even a built-in countdown timer so you’ll know how much time you have left.

The other thing you’ll want to consider is the path you should take to arrive at your destination in time. Familiarize yourself with the map so you don’t have to keep checking to see where you are in relation to Misty Meadows. It’s not the end of the world if you have to pull up your map a couple of times, but you’ll want to reduce the number of times you do this to save time.

The best course of action here is to follow the main road from Sweaty Sands to get to Misty Meadows. It may be tempting to cut corners and drive through the grass and over hills, but the vehicles in Fortnite control very poorly if you veer from the pavement. The path will take you through Holly Hedges and just south of Weeping Woods (you can also go through Slurpy Swamp, but this route will take longer) before reaching Misty Meadows. While driving, try your best to stick to the main road and avoid engaging with enemies you might come across. We suggest having a map pulled up on a second screen to reference while you’re driving if your setup allows for it. Veteran Fortnite players will probably be able to get there without needing to reference the map, but if you’re new, a second screen will do wonders for you.

Here’s a video of us completing the challenge, starting at Sweaty Sands and finishing at Misty Meadows.

You’ll notice that partway through the trip, an enemy threw a Boogie Bomb at us, causing your character to exit the vehicle. As you can see, we still got credit for completing the challenge without exiting the vehicle, so keep that in mind when you attempt it (though, we’d recommend to not get out of your vehicle anyway). Even with this mess-up, we still completed the challenge with time to spare. If you follow the path in the video above, you’ll get to your destination with around 45 seconds to spare (more if you don’t try to cut corners like we did). As soon as you and your vehicle get to Misty Meadows, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge and will be rewarded with 25,000 XP.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.

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.
