Fortnite season 5 week 3 challenge guide: How to destroy toilets

For this week’s Fortnite challenges, you’ll have an easier time completing them compared to last week’s. Still, you might have a little trouble with the one for destroying toilets since the game doesn’t tell you where to find them. Aside from that, you might be stuck trying to actually get the challenge to appear — as it doesn’t seem to be showing up for some players by default.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about Splode’s challenge for destroying toilets in Fortnite.

How to get the challenge to show up

It’s unclear if this is intentional or not, but the challenge for destroying toilets doesn’t seem to be showing up by default. What you have to do is manually accept the challenge from Splode. This NPC is located on the island to the northeast of Stealthy Stronghold. Go over to Splode and talk to them to accept the quest for destroying toilets if the challenge isn’t showing up in your list like they normally do. After you’ve manually accepted the quest, it’ll appear in your list.

How to destroy toilets

Once you’ve got the challenge to appear, you’ll have a slew of options for completing it. You only have to destroy three toilets, which can be done in one match. The easiest way to complete it is to head to Flush Factory, which is located to the south of Slurpy Swamp. Use the image above for reference. Here, you’ll find lots of different toilets to destroy. This isn’t the only location with toilets, but there are three in this area that can be destroyed very quickly.

Upon arrival at Flush Factory, head through the entrance on the north side and go into the lobby area. In the corner, you’ll find three toilets next to each other that can be destroyed. Simply smash them with your pickaxe and you’ll earn 20,000 XP and 90 gold bars for your troubles. If you manage to get eliminated before destroying all three, you can rest easy because your progress does carry over from match to match, much like most of Fortnite’s challenges.

There are lots of other locations with toilets, as well, like office buildings or some of the spots in Lazy Lake. Flush Factory is great though, because it’s usually secluded, meaning you can run in and destroy the toilets without having to worry about other players taking you out. We also advise doing this challenge in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you die before completing it.

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.
