Fortnite challenge guide: Dance on an Abductor or as a passenger on a saucer

One of the final Fortnite challenges you’ll likely go for during season 7 is week 9’s objective for dancing on an Abductor or as a passenger on a saucer. It’s a lot simpler than it seems, especially if you know where to find the Abductors around the map. Thankfully, there are multiple ways to complete this challenge, so it’s something you can get through fairly quickly.

Though if you haven’t kept up with this season, or if you’re unaware of where to find Abductors or saucers, you’ll likely have some trouble — which is where we come in. Here’s how to dance on an Abductor or as a passenger on a saucer in Fortnite.

Step one is to find either an Abductor or a saucer. For the purposes of this guide, we’ll only focus on finding an Abductor since they’re easier to locate than the saucers. If you’re wanting to use saucers to complete this challenge, refer to our guide on taking down UFOs. Abductors are massive alien ships that spawn in threes across the map. They appear in different locations each game, but you can immediately tell where they are based on the purple color of each location’s label.

As shown above, you can see Retail Row, Boney Burbs, and Craggy Cliffs are all listed in purple, indicating the presence of an Abductor at those spots. Just remember, the three locations will change from match to match. Once the match begins, pull up your map straight away and find the closest area with an Abductor. Then, make your way toward it to land on top. Some players might opt to visit the Abductor closest to the edge of the map so there’s less of a risk of finding enemy players there.

This is an effective strategy, especially if you plan on finishing out the match. Pick whichever one suits your play style and then land on top.

It’s also smart to attempt this in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you’re taken out early. Though, even if another player lands on top with you, it’s easy to quickly use an emote before jumping off, so long as you aren’t horribly unlucky.

After you’ve landed, the rest is easy. Simply use an emote to complete the challenge. Remember, to use an emote, you need to hold down on the D-pad and select one from the wheel of options you have set. Even though the challenge says you need to dance specifically, you don’t actually have to for this challenge. Any emote will work. As long as you emote while on top, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge and earn 30,000 XP for doing so.

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

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 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, 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, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.

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!
