Fortnite challenge guide: Open chests or ammo boxes in low-gravity areas

A new set of Fortnite challenges is live, this time for season 7, week 6. While the newest challenges aren’t particularly difficult, they’re slightly more complicated than the ones from last week. One challenge sends you on a quest to open chests or ammo boxes in low-gravity areas. Even if you’ve been playing all season long, you might not be aware of where to find these low-gravity areas. Or perhaps you’d like a quick method of getting through the objective so you can check it off your list.

Not to worry, as we’ve got everything you need to know about completing this challenge. In this guide, we’ll show you how to open chests or ammo boxes in low-gravity areas in Fortnite.

Currently, there are two methods of getting to a low-gravity area. The easiest way is to head to Holly Hatchery on the west side of the map. Here, you can see many of the houses in the neighborhood are boxed in by a purple substance, indicating a low-gravity spot. So you can probably guess what you need to do. Head to one of the buildings within the low-gravity zone and begin your search for chests/ammo boxes!

The other method is a little more complicated, but we thought it’d be worth mentioning nonetheless. If you get abducted by one of the large ships around the map (known as abductors), you’ll be warped to the mothership, where you’ll need to loot up and outlast the timer or collect five orbs. During the looting phase, you’ll be in a low-gravity area, so you can use this as an opportunity to finish the challenge. Though, this method is way more complicated than simply going to Holly Hatchery, so we advise skipping it.

For the purposes of more easily finding chests in Holly Hatchery, we advise turning Visualize Sound Effects on within your sound options. That way, you’ll get an on-screen notification of the chest. Your best bet is to head to the large house in the northeastern section to look for ammo boxes, because these are way more abundant than the chests. Though, if you’re lucky, you’ll manage to get some chests, too. You need to open a total of three chests or ammo boxes, so you’ve got some wiggle room. Just make sure you’re only looting in the low-gravity areas, because some of the houses in Holly Hatchery are outside of the purple spots you should be aiming for.

Once you’ve opened three chests or ammo crates in the area, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 30,000 XP.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper 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.

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.
