Fortnite challenge guide: Place a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain

With the start of Fortnite season 6, week 11, players will have a new batch of challenges to complete. In keeping with the overall theme of season 6, this week’s challenges are fairly straightforward, and most of them can be completed by playing naturally. There are only a couple you might need additional assistance with, one of which requiring you to place a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain.

This one could be tricky if you aren’t sure where the tallest mountain is or how to place a spirit crystal on its peak. But that’s where we come in. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about locating the tallest mountain in the game, along with placing a crystal on top of it. Here’s how to place a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain in Fortnite.

Step one is to locate the tallest mountain in the game. Veteran Fortnite players will likely already know where this is, but new players, or those who don’t play often, might be unsure. The tallest mountain is found just south of Catty Corner in the southeastern section of the map, close to the shore. By using the map above (courtesy of Fortnite.gg), you can see its exact location.

So, we advise landing here right away so you don’t have to worry about climbing up. If you miss the peak of the mountain or simply opt to land in a different location, you can still reach the top by building a ramp. Alternatively, if you play on Team Rumble, you can get to places easier since you respawn in the air after you’re eliminated. This way, you can glide over to your destination much faster than building a ramp. If the match starts and your spawn isn’t anywhere near the mountain, you might want to make your way close to it and then get eliminated so you spawn in the air close to the destination. Then you can get to it easier.

At the peak, you’ll see a crystal sitting next to a flag. When you approach it, all you have to do is interact with the crystal by pressing Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, or Y on Nintendo Switch. You don’t need to go anywhere else or collect materials to get through this challenge. Simply land on the peak, run up to the crystal, interact with it, and you’ll earn credit for finishing the challenge.

The nice thing is that you can literally complete this challenge in 30 seconds or so, which is not bad, considering you get 24,000 XP after you’ve placed the crystal.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.
