Fortnite challenge guide: Deliver a saucer to Rick Sanchez at Defiant Dish

It’s week 12 of Fortnite season 7, and as always, a new list of challenges are available for you to complete. For the most part, this week’s challenges are far more straightforward than some of the recent ones. A majority of them can be completed by simply playing naturally. One you might get stuck on is for delivering a saucer to Rick Sanchez at Defiant Dish. It’s not exactly difficult, but if you don’t know where to find a saucer or Rick Sanchez, you might struggle.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to complete this challenge, from the location of saucers to pinpointing Rick’s whereabouts. Here’s how to deliver a saucer to Rick Sanchez at Defiant Dish in Fortnite.

Where to find a saucer

Flying saucers were added to Fortnite during season 7, and as we covered in our UFO guide here, there are plenty of them around the map. Use the map above (thanks, to see all of their locations.

Since Rick Sanchez is located toward the center of the map, it’s a good idea to grab a saucer that’s nearby — such as the one to the west of Weeping Woods at the burger restaurant. Though, pick whichever one is safest, which will depend on the path of the battle bus at the start of a match.

We advise that you loot up wherever you land because Rick’s location is often very busy, and it’s likely you’ll come across an enemy when you arrive. It’s also recommended that you attempt this in Team Rumble so you can respawn when you get eliminated.

After you’ve obtained your saucer, fly it over to Rick’s location in the center of the map in an area called Defiant Dish. He’s found on the top floor of the building, in the southwestern portion of this area. Look for the building with the smaller dish on the roof. The goal here is to simply get in close, and as soon as you’re within 20 meters of Rick, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge, along with 30,000 XP.

The thing to note about this is that you might get shot down before you can get close to Rick, so it’s a good idea to pull back as soon as you see gunfire in your direction. If you do get taken down before you can get close enough to your objective, you’ll need to obtain another saucer to try again. When we attempted this challenge, we almost got shot down by a turret at Defiant Dish, so be careful and make your way directly to Rick’s building to complete the challenge quickly.

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.

New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

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. Refunds are meant to go to those affected by the company's billing and refund practices -- mainly players (and parents of younger players) who were charged for unwanted cosmetics and were met with account locks if they tried to dispute the charges with their credit card companies.
