One of the first ones you’ll likely attempt is getting Slone’s orders from a payphone.

Luckily, we have all the details on how to complete this challenge, so whether you’re a newcomer or veteran, you’ll likely still find some useful tips in this guide. Here’s how to get Slone’s orders from a payphone in Fortnite as part of season 7, week 3.

Where to find payphones

Payphone locations in Fortnite.

The biggest hurdle of this challenge is simply finding a payphone. They all spawn in fixed locations, which is great, but they aren’t in the most obvious places. In the map above (thanks,, you’ll find all the payphone locations in the current season. As you can see, they tend to be located around the outer edge of the map, so if you’re someone who is looking for them toward the end of a match, they might already be out of zone.

That’s why we advise visiting a payphone right away, if possible. Pick a payphone that is sort of out of the way from the path of the Battle Bus, so you don’t run into an enemy player. Despite payphones being tied to challenges, they aren’t typically as busy as you’d expect. And to make things easier, we advise attempting this in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you get eliminated before you interact with the payphone.

Another great tip is to let your team know you’re going for this challenge so they can watch your back as you attempt it. This can be an easy way to ensure you don’t get eliminated before you can interact with the payphone. Just try to get your hands on a weapon first so you can defend yourself from any nearby enemies.

As for accepting Slone’s orders, all you have to do is interact with one of the above payphones. Press Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, and Y on Nintendo Switch to interact, and you’ll need to go through a couple menu options to accept the orders. That’s all there is to it. You don’t need to actually complete Slone’s orders — simply accepting them will do the trick. After you’ve done that, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge and get 15,000 battle pass XP for your troubles.

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.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.
