Collect a record and place it in a turntable (2)

Map of record locations in Fortnite.

For this challenge, you need to head to one of the locations on the map above to collect a record. Then, you’ll need to place it in the nearby turntable, which is usually found right next to the record. Keep in mind, if the turntable is destroyed, you won’t be able to place the record there.

Despite the quest seemingly saying it requires two records, this actually refers to the number of steps in the process, not the number of records you need to place. Collect the record (1) and place it in the turntable (2).

Next, you’ll need to make your way inside The Sideways, which are circular areas marked in purple and pink around the map. Once inside, you’ll want to interact with two of the large footprints on the ground.

Head back into The Sideways and you’ll come across Cube Monsters. For this challenge, you need to take down Cube Monsters and collect the Symbols they drop, which are large crystals. After you’ve collected five of them, you’ll complete the challenge. Make sure you enter The Sideways with full shields and decent weapons.

Reveal the Command Symbol (1)

Map of Command Symbols in Fortnite.

To complete this challenge, simply visit one of the locations marked on the map above and interact with the pink Command Symbol. Once you do, you’ll earn credit for completing this one.

Launch signal flares (3)

The final challenge will take a little bit of time, so it’s best to grab a vehicle. For this one, you need to visit three of the flare locations marked on the map above and interact with them to launch them into the air. You don’t need to visit all in the same match, so don’t worry if you get eliminated before you can complete the 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.
