It’s week 12 of Fortnite season 6, and you know what that means: More challenges to complete! This week, Epic Games has added yet another manageable list of quests with plenty to do, though nothing stands out this week as being particularly difficult. As always, you’ll need to visit specific locations, but the latest list also has an emphasis on animals — whether it’s taming them or hunting them.

Luckily, we’ve got all the details on getting through this week’s trickier objectives. Here, we’ll go through all the new challenges, along with guides on how complete the harder ones in Fortnite.

Fortnite season 6, week 12 challenge list

Each week, we always recommend taking a look at the latest challenges prior to jumping into a match. That way, you’ll be aware of what to look out for as you play. Even though this week’s list is a little more complicated than before, many of the challenges can still be completed quickly.

The full list of season 6, week 12 challenges are as follows:

  • Visit the Zero Point (1)
  • Craft pistols (3)
  • Defeat a Spire Guardian (1)
  • Hunt predators (3)
  • Tame boars outside of Colossal Crops (1)
  • Chicken Glide at Colossal Crops (1)
  • Raid an artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and from Coral Castle (2)

As you can see, you’ll need to visit certain areas around the map, such as the Zero Point and a Spire, and you’ll need to know where to find animals. Below are guides for completing the trickier challenges for the week.

Fortnite season 6, week 12 challenge guide

Visit the Zero Point


The Zero Point is an orb in the center of the map. Simply head to the location (detailed above), and you’ll complete the challenge.

Defeat a Spire Guardian


Defeating a Spire Guardian is tough, but our guide below gives you all the information you’ll need to get through it!

How to defeat a Spire Guardian

Hunt predators


Predators are any living creatures that will attack you. For this challenge, you need to eliminate three of them. Reference the map above to find them.

Tame boars outside of Colossal Crops


This is similar to the previous, only it’s specifically for boars. And instead of hunting them, you must tame one that is outside of Colossal Crops. Again, the map above shows their locations.

Chicken Glide at Colossal Crops


To chicken glide, you must interact with a chicken and then jump off a tall structure. Head straight to Colossal Crops — use the map above to find a chicken to complete this one.

Raid an artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and from Coral Castle


To finish this challenge, you must collect one artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and one from Coral Castle. The guide below has details on finding them all.

How to raid an artifact from Stealthy Stronghold and from Coral Castle

And with that, you should be well-equipped for taking on all the Fortnite season 6, week 12 challenges! It shouldn’t take you too long to get through them, and you’ll get a hefty amount of XP for your battle pass if you complete them all.

All mounts in Minecraft Legends and how to get them
Four players stand together in the 4v4 PvP mode of Minecraft Legends.

In yet another genre-mixup following Minecraft Dungeons, Minecraft Legends brings the open-world survival and building game to the RTS genre. Unlike most traditional RTS games, where you control the action from a detached, overhead perspective, this game keeps you in the action by giving you a character to control on the field itself. To keep the action fast-paced, and make sure you can easily control and order your mobs around, giving your character a mount is essential. Just like in the original game that inspired it, there are multiple creatures you can use as mounts, and they all behave and function differently. While the world in Minecraft Legends isn't randomly generated, it can still feel overwhelming trying to find what you're looking for. Here are all the mounts you can ride in Minecraft Legends, what they do, and where to find them.
How to get every mount in Minecraft Legends

There are four different mounts you can tame and ride throughout your quest in Minecraft Legends. These include the horse, bird, beetle, and tiger. All you have to do to ride a new one is find it and press Swap Mount when near it, but finding them is the tricky part. Here's where each of them resides in the world, plus what makes them special.
Where to find the horse
You won't have to go looking for the horse since you begin the game with one. This is the classic mount and is made for getting you around the map much faster than on foot. The horse's special ability is being able to sprint indefinitely at a high speed.
Where to find the bird
A bird may not sound like a creature you could ride, and yet here we are. These rainbow-colored birds are quite small, but not hard to find in the Jagged Peaks biome. Keep an eye on your map for a clue as to when you're close to one since they will automatically be marked for you. Once you've mounted a bird, you will be able to jump higher than any other mount, plus slowly glide from any height by holding the jump button.
Where to find the beetle
Perhaps an even stranger choice for a mount, the beetle is much bigger than their real-life counterparts. These insects are native to the Jungle biomes, so venture into the trees to snag one. The Beetle has two special attributes, the first it shares with the bird which is being able to glide by holding jump in the air. The beetle's unique skill is that it can climb up any surface. So, while slow, it is very versatile and strategic.
Where to find the tiger
Now we're talking! If you want to play He-Man and ride your very own tiger, get yourself on a safari to the Dry Savanna biome to track one down. The tiger has the most simple ability, which is that it is simply the fastest mount you can get. However, this speed does come with a downside. Unlike the Horse, the Tiger doesn't have infinite stamina, so you will need to slow down eventually.

How to launch fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite
Launching fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite.

The week 2 Fortnite Coachella quests are live now, and while a lot of them are straightforward, one seems to have caused some confusion for many players. The quest is for launching fireworks at Coachella Island, and as expected, the game doesn't necessarily specify how to complete the objective. In this guide, we'll show you how to launch fireworks at Coachella in Fortnite.
Visit Coachella Island

The first step is to actually make your way to Coachella Island. You cannot complete this quest during a normal match and instead must head into a Creator Made Island. To do so, you'll need to head to Island Code from the game mode menu and utilize the code 5449-4207-1280. Then, launch into a match on Coachella Island.

How to damage opponents with the Lock On Pistol in Fortnite
The Lock On Pistol in Fortnite.

As part of a weekly challenge in Fortnite, players are tasked with dealing 200 damage with the Lock On Pistol. This challenge has caused some confusion, as acquiring the weapon isn't as consistent as players might have hoped. In this guide, we'll show you how to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol and how to deal 200 damage with it in Fortnite.
How to find the Lock On Pistol

First, you need to get your hands on the Lock On Pistol. Currently, the only known ways of finding one are by opening chests or collecting them from Supply Drops. The weapon isn't available from NPCs or any method just yet. This means you'll want to head to a high-traffic area like Mega City to find a bunch of chests. Keep in mind that Mega City will be busy, but there are plenty of chests available. If you want to play it safe, you can visit a different point of interest (POI). Keep opening chests until you get your hands on the Lock On Pistol.
