Fortnite challenge guide: Drive a car through the cornfield at Steel Farm

After you’ve completed the Fortnite season 5, week 8 challenge for destroying tomato boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market, you’ll be able to start stage 2. To complete stage 2, you need to drive a car through the cornfield near Steel Farm — an area that is not marked on the map. Since it’s unmarked, you might be unsure of where to go. Or, maybe you’re simply having trouble finding a nearby vehicle.

Either way, this guide will show you how to complete it as easily as possible. Here’s how to drive a car through the cornfield at Steel Farm in Fortnite.

The first thing you should do is grab a vehicle so you can drive it to your destination. Steel Farm is just east of Colossal Coliseum, so you’ll want to land somewhere in the vicinity to grab some wheels. From our experience, the best spot to find a vehicle is at the bridge to the southeast of Colossal Coliseum. The image above shows a great location where there is often more than one vehicle to choose from. Pick the one with the most gas before heading to your destination.

If you can’t find one there, you can try the gas station just north of that. There’s often at least one vehicle there as well, so give it a try if need be. Once you’ve got a ride, head to Steel Farm, which is just north of that. We’ll show you its exact location below.

Steel Farm is located on the north side of the island you’re on and features a barn and the aforementioned cornfield next to it. Drive north from where you landed, and the cornfield will appear on the right side. Drive through the corn to complete the challenge.

On our attempt, the challenge didn’t complete as soon as we drove into the field. We had to drive through several sections of corn to get it to work. Just keep driving around, and it’ll eventually unlock. It’s unclear how many sections you need to drive through to trigger the completion, so just keep driving until you get the notification. It’s also worth noting that if another player manages to beat you to this location and destroy all the corn before you, you’ll need to attempt it again. So keep that in mind. But from our experience, this area wasn’t busy at all.

Once you do destroy enough corn, you’ll gain 20,000 XP, and you’ll be ready for the final stage of the farm-related quests. The next one is similar to stage 2, in that it requires you to drive a vehicle to a specific location — though it’s a little tougher than this challenge.

Fortnite performance guide: best settings, fps boost, and more
Fortnite man.

Fortnite continues to be one of the most popular games in the world, with a strong competitive scene, and like any competitive game, players want every possible advantage they can get. One of the best ways to improve your chances of winning is to tweak the game's settings, so it runs at higher frame rates, lowering your input lag and helping you to react faster.

Fortnite is a slightly more demanding esport than some of its older rivals, but that just means there's more scope for performance improvements if you select the right settings. Here are the most important performance-enhancing tweaks you can make to Fortnite.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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.
