Fortnite challenge guide: Fly 20 meters with a chicken

Week 3 of Fortnite’s season 6 is underway with a new batch of challenges for you to check off your list. This week’s challenges are varied in difficulty, though only a small portion should give you trouble. The first one we’ll be tackling is the one for flying 20 meters with a chicken. Of course, season 6 has introduced wild animals around the map, including boars, frogs, and chickens.

You can actually grab the chickens like in The Legend of Zelda and use them to glide around, which is actually an effective strategy for getting out of a bind. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about chickens, including where to find them and how to fly around with them. Here’s how to fly 20 meters with a chicken in Fortnite.

Where to find chickens


Step one of this challenge is to actually find a chicken. They spawn in fixed locations around the world, so use the map above (thanks, to find where they are. As you can see, the middle portion of the map has plenty of chickens to choose from, especially to the east of The Spire. The thing is — this area can be quite busy at times, so depending on your skill level, you might want to venture to one of the other locations.

The other thing to keep in mind with this challenge is that the game tracks your progress cumulatively, meaning you don’t have to fly 20 meters in one go. That’s a good thing — you can give it multiple tries across more than one match. And of course, we recommend attempting this challenge in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you get eliminated. Now that you’ve got all that in mind, we can jump into the meat and potatoes of the challenge.

The issue with the chickens is that they’re pretty fast and are hard to catch. But if you just keep running after them, eventually you’ll catch up — just make sure you’re mashing the Grab button on your controller as you chase the chicken: Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, and Y on Nintendo Switch. With a little luck, you’ll grab onto the chicken and hold it above your head.

At this point, you have a few options. Depending on the area you’re in, you might be able to just jump off a tall hill, which will easily get you close to the 20-meter mark. Otherwise, you’ll have to jump around by pressing X on PlayStation, A on Xbox, or B on Nintendo Switch. Do this repeatedly and you’ll eventually accumulate 20 meters of fly time — along with 24K XP for your troubles.

The best places to land in Fortnite (Chapter 5, Season 2)

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death.

As part of Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one is best comes down to your skill and preference. With that in mind, here are the best places to land in Fortnite for veterans, beginners, and everyone in between.
The best places to land in Fortnite
Before jumping into the list of the best places to land in Fortnite, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot. they also typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

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.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

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.
