Fortnite season 8, week 6 challenge guide: Dark Jonesy

As part of the Fortnitemares event, which celebrates Halloween in Fortnite, you’ll have access to a new set of spooky quests. For season 8, week 6, you’ll get a new batch of quests from Dark Jonesy. This is the first time this season that a character has introduced a second set of punchcard quests, rather than being given to you by a new NPC. For this reason, there may be some confusion as to how things work. The quests themselves aren’t the most straightforward either, so you might need some assistance when tackling them.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about completing these quests. These are the Dark Jonesy challenges and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Collect scrolls at different IO bases (2)

The first quest is fairly straightforward. Head to two of the spots listed on the map above to collect the scrolls at IO bases. It’s recommended to visit each location only after you’ve stocked up on gear, as you’ll probably come across enemy NPCs while there.

Use a Shadow Stone, then recover the Spirit Vessel (1)

This one is tricky because you must first collect a Shadow Stone, which are found at crash sites around the map. For the purposes of this challenge, we recommend landing at the crash site by Dirty Docks since that’s where you can find a Spirit Vessel. At the crash site, you’ll find Shadow Stones, which look like small purple cubes that can be consumed. Then, travel to one of the spots on the map above to recover the Spirit Vessel.

Touch a cube (1)

For this one, simply bounce off the yellow cube in the center of the map to complete the challenge.

Destroy the Corruption Cluster and all Corruption Fragments (2)

Next up, you’ll need to visit two of the three spots shown on the map above and destroy the pink crystals that protrude from the ground. Keep in mind, more fragments will pop up after you destroy one, so make sure you’re quick.

Finally, head back to Dark Jonesy, interact with him, and you’ll be able to give him the Spirit Vessel from a previous challenge. Once you do, you’ll be finished with his questline.

The best places to land in Fortnite (Chapter 5, Season 2)

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 5 Season 2, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one is best comes down to your skill and preference. With that in mind, here are the best places to land in Fortnite for veterans, beginners, and everyone in between.
The best places to land in Fortnite
Before jumping into the list of the best places to land in Fortnite, 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. they also typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

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.
