Search Chests in Wailing Woods

The usual chest searching challenge is here, but Wailing Woods is always a tricky location due to the sparse number of chests that can be found in the area. There are a maximum of five chest spawns possible within the central hedge maze, and a further five potential chests further out into the woods. For all of the possible places they could appear, check out our Fortnite chest locations guide.


Use a Rift at different Rift spawn locations

Hopefully by now you'll know how the Fortnite Rifts work - jump into one of these wormholes to teleport yourself high into the air, ready to skydive back down onto unsuspecting opponents or glide to a completely new area. For this challenge you need to use a Rift at 10 different spawn locations, though handily there are 15 places where Rifts will regularly appear. Remember that Rifts do close up shortly after they've been used, so if you go to one of these locations and can't find one then another player has already beaten you to it.

  • C2 - Easter Island Statue south east of Junk Junction

  • G3 - Near the river north west of Tomato Town
  • F5 - Mountain north west of Dusty Divot


Search between three oversized seats (HARD)

It's another geographic treasure hunt for hidden Battle Stars, and if you want to search between three oversized seats then you need to head to the northeast corner of D9 on the map.

Aim for the group of three trees on top of the hill overlooking Flush Factory, and once you land look for the patch of earth between the west and south trees where the Battle Stars will appear. As there is a weapon spawn and possibly a chest right in the middle of this area, be prepared for things to get intense - though you could always try to inflict some Pickaxe damage on opponents dropping in unarmed.


Stage 1: Eliminate an opponent in Greasy Grove

After the new format of multi stage quests was introduced with last week's Battle Pass Challenges, it's back again but this time focused on eliminations. Thankfully there's only three stages to this quest, so after taking out an opponent in Greasy Grove, you'll then need to finish off another one in Lonely Lodge, followed by a final elimination in Fatal Fields. As with last week, the next stage of this challenge will only unlock at the end of the match where you completed the previous stage, so you can't jump ahead by going to the next location. Work through all three areas and the full 10 Battle Stars will be yours.
