Fortnite season 4 week 7 challenge guide: Destroying cobwebs at The Authority

One of Fortnite season 4 week 7’s easier challenges requires you to destroy three cobwebs at The Authority. The nice thing is that they’re all relatively close to one another, but if you’re having trouble, we’ve got you covered. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find cobwebs at The Authority and we’ll even include a handy video for you, showing us destroying all three back-to-back. Keep in mind, there are other cobwebs you can destroy at The Authority, but the ones we picked to take out are relatively simple to find.

Here’s how to destroy cobwebs at The Authority in Fortnite.

Cobweb locations in The Authority

The Authority is the large island in the middle of the map and you can easily spot it since it’s marked for you. Luckily, the cobwebs in this area are in the same spots each time, so you don’t have to worry about having to discover and look for them, yourself. We recommend starting by landing on the helipad on the eastern side of The Authority, as it leads to a convenient trio of cobwebs for you to destroy. Remember, if you get eliminated before taking out all three cobwebs, you can start a new match and your progress will save.

Though, from our experience, you can gather all three in less than a minute. Sometimes, you’ll come across other enemies looking to complete this challenge as well, so if that happens, do your best to grab a weapon to defend yourself. There’s a chest on the top floor of The Authority as soon as you enter from the helipad, so rush towards it as quickly as you can.

Here’s a video of us destroying all three.

And here’s a list of them along with their locations.

First cobweb

You’ll find the first cobweb on the top floor, as soon as you enter from the helipad. It’ll be in the top right corner of the room you enter, so either shoot it or craft a ramp to get up to it.

Second cobweb

The next one is found one floor below the previous cobweb. Simply go down the steps, open the door, and it’ll be in a corner just above you as you enter the room on the left side.

Third cobweb

The third and final cobweb is found one floor below the previous, in a more open area above a series of beams. It’s located on the south side and can be reached by jumping up on some boxes next to it — or shot if you manage to get your hands on a weapon. Once you’ve destroyed the final one, you’ll gain a quick and easy 25,000 XP.

Where to find lightsabers

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.

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. The quest is for launching fireworks at Coachella Island, and as expected, the game doesn't necessarily specify how to complete the objective. In this guide, we'll show you how to launch fireworks at Coachella in Fortnite.
Visit Coachella Island

The first step is to actually make your way to Coachella Island. You cannot complete this quest during a normal match and instead must head into a Creator Made Island. To do so, you'll need to head to Island Code from the game mode menu and utilize the code 5449-4207-1280. Then, launch into a match on Coachella Island.

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.
