Fortnite challenge guide: Serve Fishstick and his date a fancy dinner at any restaurant

Fortnite season 5, week 11 is underway, along with a new set of Valentine’s Day-themed challenges. This week, you’ll be running around the map, collecting items for various NPCs in hopes of getting them a Valentine’s date. The second challenge you’ll likely go for is the one for serving Fishstick and his date a fancy dinner at any restaurant. In order to complete this challenge, you’ll need to first finish stage one of this set, which requires you to catch three different kinds of fish.

Once you do, back out to the main menu and you can begin stage two for serving Fishstick a fancy dinner. Because of how these challenges are worded, they can be tricky to understand, but we’ll walk you through finishing all of them. Here’s how to serve Fishstick and his date a fancy dinner at any restaurant in Fortnite.

After you’ve completed stage one, you can visit the challenge hub from the main menu to reveal the locations for stage two. In referencing the image above, you’ll see there are four possible locations for completing this challenge. Any one of them will work, but we recommend visiting the one in Craggy Cliffs, as it’s the least busy of the four. Though, how busy a location is will depend on the path of the Battle Bus at the beginning.

We also advise you to attempt this in Team Rumble, since you can respawn if you die. You can go for this challenge in Battle Royale, as well, but it’s a bit harder since you only have one life. Either way, boot up a game mode you’re comfortable with and head to one of the locations on the map above. For the purposes of this guide, we’ll walk you through the location at Craggy Cliffs.

All you have to do is interact with a fancy diner table in one of the four locations by pressing Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, or Y on Nintendo Switch. Remember, you only need to visit one of the locations on the map, so choose the spot that’s farthest out of the way to avoid other players. If someone else lands near you, try to prioritize grabbing a weapon so you can eliminate them. Otherwise, they might get to you first.

We didn’t test to see if only one dinner table is available per location, but if someone beats you to it and it disappears, you’ll have to try another spot or attempt it in a separate match. That’s why we recommend coordinating with a team, so they can watch your back as you make a beeline for the dinner table. After you’ve interacted with it, you’ll earn 20,000 XP.

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.

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.

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.
