Fortnite challenge guide: Search the farm for clues

Fortnite season 7, week 4 is now here, and as usual, it comes with a slew of new challenges for you to complete. Once again, this week’s challenges are a bit trickier than you might be used to, as most of them require you to visit certain unmarked locations on the map to find collectibles. While these aren’t necessarily difficult, you might be stuck when trying to complete them. One in particular is for searching the farm for clues.

As you can tell from the challenge’s description, it isn’t very specific. Luckily, the requirements for this objective aren’t too hefty, so once you know where to go, you can complete it quickly. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about finishing this quest. Here’s how to search the farm for clues in Fortnite.

Clue locations

Fortnite search farm for clues.

In total, there are four clues to find around the farm area. Clues are represented by little magnifying glasses that can be picked up. The spot you’ll want to go to is the island just east of Corny Complex. Reference the map above for more details (thanks, For the challenge itself, you only need to find two out of the four clues, which will save you some time. As with most collectibles, you can grab these in any order and across multiple matches. Though, you shouldn’t have too many issues getting two in one match, unless you’re extremely unlucky.

In cases when other enemies are around you, we recommend hiding inside the house in the center to wait for them to leave, or to perhaps find a weapon to defend yourself with. And as always, we advise attempting this with a squad so your teammates can watch your back as you hunt for clues in this area.

Below are the specific locations of each clue in the farm area.

Clue 1 location

The first one is to the southwest, close to the water by some rocks. It’s close to the little bridge that connects the island to Corny Complex.

Clue 2 location

Clue 3 location

How to unlock augments in Fortnite

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?
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.

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.
