A fresh superhero has arrived on the scene to take over the mantle from Deadpool, and there's a new set of Fortnite Aquaman challenges available to celebrate him joining the gang. If you actually want to use him as a playable character, rather than a muscular menu feature, then you'll need to clear all five of his Fortnite tasks before the undisputed king of the sea is added to your locker. After you've collected the Aquaman skin, one last mission will unlock and you'll have to clear that too so you can earn the shirtless Arthur Curry Aquaman style – we've got all the information on that as well. If you're all set to take on the Fortnite Aquaman challenges, read on for the details.

Fortnite Aquaman challenges Week 1

Fortnite Aquaman challenges: Use a whirlpool at The Fortilla

For the first Fortnite Aquaman challenge, you simply need to head to The Fortilla and use a whirlpool. As you can see on the map above, The Fortilla can be found in the south-west corner, next to Rickety Rig. Simply swim out to any whirlpool and enter it to be shot into the air, much like the geysers back at the tail end of chapter one.

Doing this should complete the challenge for you. If it doesn't, have a look for another whirlpool closer to The Fortilla, because you might have strayed too far out. When it's complete, you'll have a brand new loading screen unlocked for your troubles.

Fortnite Aquaman challenges: Use a Fishing Pole to ride behind a Loot Shark at Sweaty Sands

For the second of the Fortnite Aquaman challenges, you need to head to Sweaty Sands and use a Fishing Pole to ride behind a Loot Shark. The map above points out Sweaty Sands on the map so you know exactly where to go, but make sure you get a Fishing Pole first.

When you get to Sweaty Sands with a Fishing Pole, look in the water around the outskirts for a Loot Shark. When you find one, cast the line into the water in front of it and the shark should bite, pulling you through the water. That's all there is to it! Getting a Fishing Pole may be the hardest part as it's essentially random, but make sure you're checking every chest you can until you get to a shark, or look out for the barrels of Fishing Poles on certain docks and piers.

Fortnite Aquaman challenges Week 3

Fortnite Aquaman challenges: Catch different types of fish in a single match

The third Fortnite Aquaman challenge is not location specific, though like the previous one it requires the use of a Fishing Pole – unless you're a bit of a maverick and pick up a Harpoon, that is. Once you've got your angling equipment of choice, look for fishing spots to cast into and keep going until you've caught two different types of fish.

Currently there are Small Fry, Floppers, and Slurpfish in the game, and fishing spots tend to throw up a variety of items, so it shouldn't take you long to secure two different types of fish. Note that you can cast the Fishing Pole into any area of open water and you will sometimes make a catch, but fishing spots will massively speed up the process for you.

Fortnite Aquaman challenges Week 4

Fortnite Aquaman challenges: Complete the swimming Time Trial at Dirty Docks

For this fourth Fortnite Aquaman challenge you need to head to Dirty Docks, though it's currently not marked as a named location on the map. If you don't remember where it is from last season, then head to the area on the east coast in H4 where a couple of the cranes are still sticking out of the water.

In the location we've marked on the map above, just south of those protruding cranes, you should spot a glowing blue stopwatch icon on the surface of the water. Approach and interact with it to start the swimming time trial at Dirty Docks, then follow the markers starting in a southeast direction and coming around in a loop. You'll need to be fast to hit them all, so remember to keep jumping out of the water as you sprint swim forwards to get a speed boost.

Completing the five weekly Fortnite Aquaman challenges will only net you the suit version of the character. If you want the shirtless Arthur Curry version, you'll have to complete an additional challenge which is to dive over the waterfall at Gorgeous Gorge while wearing the plain Aquaman skin.
