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.

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, Fortnite.gg) 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.

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.
