Remember, The Sideways areas pop up on your map as purple circles, so look out for them periodically as you play, because they constantly appear throughout any given match. Once inside, you’ll see a handful of monsters and rocks. Break down two of the rocks any way you see fit to earn credit.

Within The Sideways are corruption vents, which are essentially geysers on the ground. When you walk over the top of them, you’ll be launched into the air. Do this once to complete the challenge.

Arguably the hardest challenge requires you to take out cube monsters within 15 seconds of landing after gliding. Remember those corruption vents from before? Use them to glide into the air and upon landing, immediately open fire on the monsters. It helps if you damage them a little before bouncing from the vent so you don’t have to spend as much time shooting them. Keep in mind, you don’t have to take out all three enemies consecutively.

Get headshots from above

This challenge is more situational than before, so be on the lookout for enemies and make sure you take the high ground before engaging. The easiest way to do this is to play a team mode like duos, trios, or quads, and down an enemy player. Once they’re down, build a ramp to get above them and then take them out using headshots. Repeat this one more time to check the quest off your list.

Destroy chests with a harvesting tool

The final challenge is one of the easiest of the bunch. Instead of opening a chest normally, attack it with your harvesting tool. It’ll take a few good whacks to break it open, but it’s easy to do. Destroy two chests to complete this challenge.

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!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.
