Fortnite challenge guide: Launch toilets with a Grab-itron

The latest set of challenges for Fortnite season 7 is here, this time for week 9. The season is almost over, but we’ve got a little more to do before it wraps up. This week, you’re required to launch toilets with a Grab-itron, which is a weapon that — you guessed it — allows you to grab and launch items around the world. This challenge is actually a bit of a pain, not because it’s hard, but because it can take a while to get a Grab-itron to spawn.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about completing this challenge. Here’s how to launch toilets with a Grab-itron in Fortnite.

First, you’ll want to get your hands on the Grab-itron, which is a purple device that can be used to launch items found throughout the map. The problem is, finding this weapon can be tough since it doesn’t seem to spawn too often. Ideally, you should land in an area with lots of buildings such as Lazy Lake or Steamy Stacks. These areas are home to many chests, which contain the device you’re looking for. In fact, we advise going toward a place with toilets, which are usually found inside buildings at the aforementioned locations (this way, you won’t have to travel far once you do get the Grab-itron).

Once you land, you should make it a priority to loot as much as possible, opening up every chest you can find. With a little luck, you’ll stumble upon the Grab-itron, but if you’re like us, it might take you a little while to find it. Make sure you have Visualize Sound Effects turned on so you can easily pinpoint the locations of chests. Keep looting and make sure you take out nearby opponents, as they might drop a Grab-itron if they had one on hand.

As always, we advise bringing a squad along with you to help you find the weapon and so they can watch your back as you look around.

Once you’ve gotten your hands on it, all you have to do is launch two toilets. They don’t need to be in the same match, though we’d recommend getting this challenge done ASAP since finding the Grab-itron is so tricky. When we completed the challenge on our end, we landed at Steamy Stacks, which is a great spot that’s often less busy than others. Here, there are multiple bathrooms with toilets, so assuming you’ve found a Grab-itron, you should have no trouble launching two before the end of the match.

Otherwise, you’ll need to head to the next building with a bathroom to find another toilet to launch. After you launch two, you’ll gain credit for completing the challenge.

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

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!
