Shakedown an IO Guard

You'll find Fortnite IO Guards at plenty of locations around the island, including Coral Castle, Stealthy Stronghold, Steamy Stacks, Hunter's Haven, and Misty Meadows. Knock one of them down, then quickly approach them and follow the shakedown prompt before they're eliminated completely.

Find a hidden bunker???

You'll need to clear some existing structures to uncover a Fortnite hidden bunker, and we've got several locations to choose from in our separate guide.

Find the crashed plane's black box

In order to find the Fortnite crashed plane black box, you'll first need to find the wreckage near Coral Castle, before interactive with the flight recorder.

Deal damage while in water

This is easiest to tackle in Team Rumble mode, as long as the circle closes in on an area with a river, lake, or coast within reach. Hop in the water, then keep taking shots at your opponents until you hit the target. These challenges often count damage to NPCs too, so you could try attacking IO Guards in locations such as Lake Canoe and Rapid's Rest, or Loot Sharks while in water.

Emote at stone statues

Fortnite stone statues representing massive llamas and fish are available at several key places, so head to one of their locations then break out your best dance emote under their watchful gaze.

Ride the Steamy Stacks

Steamy Stacks is the power plant in the northeast corner of the map, and once you're there all you need to do is go inside either of the tall cooling towers to ride the thermals upwards.

Deal damage to a Loot Shark

Loot Sharks spawn at the coast in a number of locations, including several around Coral Castle, one between Steamy Stacks and Dirty Docks, and a couple more on the south coast at Lumber Lodge and Camp Cod. Unload your weapons into the shark when you find one, but be prepared for evasive action as they will launch themselves out of the water to land a high damage attack on you.
