Fortnite season 8, week 10 challenge guide: Rust Lord

In looking at the new Fortnite quests for Rust Lord, you’ll be happy to know the challenges are significantly easier than most of the others from this season — at least if you’re someone who plays even semi-regularly. Most of the quests are tied to tasks you’d likely complete anyway during natural play, so this is a relatively easy source of XP as we approach the end of the season.

To make this process go by even faster, we’ve got guides on all five Rust Lord quests so you can get in and out in no time. These are the new Rust Lord challenges and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Rust Lord challenge guide

Collect wood, metal, and stone (3)

Wood in Fortnite.

After you’ve started the questline, we advise making your way to Weeping Woods since this area is home (or close to) many of the tasks given to you by Rust Lord. The first challenge requires you to collect wood, metal, and stone, all of which can be found in this location. Wood can be gathered from the cabins, metal can be collected from the large containers or the vehicles, and destroying rocks will grant you with stone.

Build structures at Corny Crops or Weeping Woods (20)

Building structures in Fortnite.

As you destroy structures, you’ll likely gather wood. Keep gathering enough wood to create 20 structures, which can be done with around 200 pieces.

Gather shields from Slurp Barrels (30)

Slurp barrels in Fortnite.

There are lots of areas that contain Slurp Barrels, such as various buildings and inside the containers around the spire to the west of Weeping Woods. If you’re stuck, head to Sludgy Swamp where you’ll find an abundance of barrels waiting to be destroyed.

Hit weak points while harvesting (20)

Hitting weak points in Fortnite.

Speaking of destruction, make sure you hit 20 weak points with your harvesting tool — indicated by the blue and red icon shown above — to complete this challenge.

Destroy structures with a vehicle (30)

Destroying structures with a vehicle in Fortnite.

And finally, make sure you pick up a vehicle and use it to destroy 30 structures around the map. Keep in mind that many objects are comprised of multiple structures, so as long as your car has enough health and gas, you should be able to destroy enough in no time. If your vehicle breaks down before you can destroy 30 structures, we advise jumping in another car to finish out the rest, even if it’s in a separate match.

Fire Emblem Engage class guide: class skills, strengths, and weaknesses

Tactics games can be fairly complex thanks to them typically having a higher number of units to manage, level, and outfit. Fire Emblem Engage focuses down more on the combat side of the equation compared to Three Houses, so keeping your team scaling as the game goes on is vital. Instead of just having a linear experience and leveling system like most normal RPGs, Fire Emblem Engage continues the tradition of having a class system, where each unit can level up and change into different classes with different skills, strengths, and weaknesses. With dozens of options between Base, Advanced, and Special classes to pick from, it can be hard to know which ones are best. Let's run through some of the best options for each type.
Best Alear class

We'll single out your player character of Alear since they have a pretty definitive best class in Divine Dragon. Exclusive to them, this class's skill, Divine Spirit, reduces their Engage Meter by one, has an A in Sword proficiency and B in Arts, and high base stats.
