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 to launch fireworks at Coachella Island in Fortnite
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.
