This isn’t terribly difficult, as long as you know where to find the vehicle. But there is a preferred method of completing the challenge to make it easier on you.

In this guide, we’ll show you where to find a Whiplash and how to complete the latest challenge. Here’s how to drive a Whiplash through the storm in Fortnite.

Where to find a Whiplash

Map of all Whiplash locations in Fortnite.

As you can see in the map above (thanks,, there’s no shortage of Whiplash cars to gather as you play. For the purposes of this challenge, we recommend heading to one of the Whiplash cars around the outer edges of the map — that way you’re more likely to be close to the storm when it comes in. Of course, how the storm forms is different each match, but if you stick to the outer edges, you’ll have a better chance of being near it.

We also advise getting to the Whiplash as soon as you can so you can prepare for the challenge itself. Landing by a garage or gas station is a good idea so you can fill up the Whiplash with gas, because they typically start off close to empty. Garages are known to have gas canisters and are usually less busy than the gas stations.

Once you’ve got your hands on a Whiplash and filled it up with gas, we actually recommend not driving around, as this could lead to other players who could damage your vehicle. Hang out around the car and, eventually, the storm will come in. Hopefully, you picked a spot that isn’t too far from the storm, but if you did, no worries. Make your way to the nearest storm, but make sure you do so quickly.

All you have to do is pop in quickly, so no need to stick around in the storm more than you have to. As soon as you get credit for completing the challenge, immediately turn around and drive back to safety. If you’re only looking to complete the challenge and don’t care about finishing the match, you can quit out at this point. Otherwise, you’ll want to make sure you can make your way out. We also advise waiting until the storm has stopped so you don’t have to worry about outrunning it, which can get messy.

Like a Dragon: Ishin! skills guide: skill tree explained and best skills
A samurai jumps on the air in Like a Dragon: Ishin!

Depending on which title you started with, Like a Dragon: Ishin! will either feel like a return to the original Like a Dragon (formerly known as Yakuza) gameplay style, or completely new. This remake was never released in the West, but has finally been given a worldwide release. While very different in setting from every other game in the series, Like a Dragon: Ishin! keeps the brawler-style of combat, along with different fighting styles to swap between and upgrade. This skill tree and upgrade system is a bit more complex than some other action RPGs out there. Before you get swept up in protagonist Ryoma's tale of class, politics, and blood, make sure you understand the basics of combat in Like a Dragon: Ishin!
How skill trees work

Ryoma, just like Kiryu in every Like a Dragon game (except for 7), will have four distinct combat styles. Set in the 1800s as opposed to more modern times like the other games, Like a Dragon: Ishin! features very different options from normal. These include stances like Brawler (hand-to-hand focused) Swordsman utilizes a katana), Gunman (gives you a pistol), and Wild Dancer (where Ryoma will wield his sword in one hand and handgun in the other). Each style has strengths and weaknesses, as well as its own individual skill tree that you can invest in.
