In this guide, we’ll show you how this challenge works, along with the locations of each bunker. Here’s where to find a bunker in Fortnite.

Where to find a hidden bunker

There are three bunkers you can choose from to complete this challenge, but luckily, you only need to discover one of them. In the map above (courtesy of, you’ll see all three locations as indicated by the circles. But for this guide, we’ll be focusing on the one in the bottom right, to the east of Retail Row as indicated by the red circle. The yellow circles simply represent the other bunker locations, so feel free to land at any of those instead.

With regards to the bunker across from Retail Row, it’s hidden on the cliffside among some shrubs and trees. This area will be grayed out on the map before you discover it, so be aware that pinpointing its exact location on the map might not be so straightforward. Nonetheless, land at this spot and search for the two trees that surround the bunker. Take down the shrubs if you’d like, so you can see the bunker easier.

All you have to do is walk on top of it and you’ll gain credit for the challenge, along with 20,000 XP for doing so. The one thing we should mention is that you might encounter other players going for the same challenge — specifically at the spot mentioned above. If that happens, it’s not the end of the world, as you can still land on the bunker and get credit for doing so, even if you go down. It’s not as tough as one of the other challenges that features a limited number of items or something similar, so don’t worry if you see a bunch of people landing by you.

Remember, in order to complete this challenge, you must first finish stage one of this particular set. During season 5, most of the challenges come in stages, meaning you have to complete one before moving on to the next. Unfortunately, this means you can’t just complete them all in the same match since you need to back out to the main menu after each quest you complete. In this case, stage one features a quest that requires you to shake down an IO guard, so make sure you do that first before attempting this one. Otherwise, the next challenge won’t unlock, even if you meet the requirements for it.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0’s overpowered new DMZ bundle ignites pay-to-win fears
Character calling in killstreak in Warzone 2.0.

Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 has struggled to retain players due to odd gameplay decisions and controversial mechanics that have divided the community. A new feature, though, has players especially up in arms.

Recently, publisher Activision released an in-game store bundle that some players consider a "pay-to-win" option, stirring up criticism once again. The paid bundle, "Roze and Thorn," gives DMZ players a free unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that temporarily reveals the locations of enemy players at the start of a match, immediately offering an advantage.

Warzone 2.0’s one-shot snipers are hard to use. Try this weapon instead
Character holding sniper in Warzone 2.0.

Activision finally added the ability to earn one-hit kills with certain snipers as part of Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 3. This was a much-needed update that makes heavy rifles more viable. However, this comes with a major caveat, as the only way to earn a one-hit kill is by utilizing explosive rounds on a small selection of snipers, which absolutely tanks a weapon's bullet velocity.

This makes it extremely difficult to actually hit your shots, so inexperienced players won't really reap the benefits of the newly-added one-shot capabilities. However, there is an alternative solution that everyone should try, as it's a viable option that works well at long distances.
