Fortnite challenge guide: Modify vehicles with off-road tires

One of the vehicle-related challenges you might be unfamiliar with during Fortnite‘s season 6, week 5 requires you to modify vehicles with off-road tires. As with many of the challenges that appear throughout the season, the game doesn’t do a great job of explaining how this mechanic works.

Fortunately, we’ve got all the details on how to upgrade vehicles during the game’s latest season. Here’s how to modify vehicles with off-road tires in Fortnite.

The first thing you need to know about this challenge is that you can complete it across Battle Royale or Team Rumble modes. For the sake of simplicity, Team Rumble tends to be the best, as you can come back if you get eliminated. But fortunately, the challenge is simple enough that you shouldn’t have much trouble completing it quickly, even if you’re in a Solos match.

Nonetheless, boot up a match type of your choice and visit one of the garages indicated by the tire icons above (thanks as always to Pick one that’s out of the way so you’re less likely to be joined by other enemy players. Land by the garage, and there should be a car inside surrounded by stacks of tires. Slash the tires with your pickaxe, and you’ll be able to collect an item called “Vehicle Mod: Off-road Tires.”

For this challenge, you’ll need to modify three vehicles, so pick up three tires total, and they’ll appear in your inventory in the bottom right of the screen. Select the tire, and you’ll have the option to throw it by using the right trigger. If you throw it at a vehicle (a drivable one — the vehicles with boots on the wheels won’t count), you’ll be able to modify them.

That’s all there is to it. Just throw the tire at the vehicle and it will be modified with the large tires, which will count towards the challenge. Just do this two more times and you’ll gain credit for completing the quest. If you’re having trouble finding more vehicles, try visiting the other garages shown in the map above. These have cars and tires that spawn consistently, so you’ll have a guaranteed way of getting it done reliably.

Though if you simply walk around each garage area, there are normally other vehicles scattered about. The other thing to note is that your progress carries over from match to match, so if you only manage to modify one vehicle before the end of the game, don’t worry. You can pick up where you left off in another match. Once you’ve modified three vehicles, you’ll gain 24,000 XP for your troubles.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

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 wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive 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 essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. 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.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Fortnite lawsuit: Are you eligible for a refund from Epic Games?
New characters in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4.

Fortnite developer Epic Games is being hit with $520 million in fines by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and there's a chance that you could get a payout.

Out of that $520 million total, $245 million is set to be refunded to customers.
