To complete this challenge, players will need to land at a Hot Spot in three different matches.
There won’t be much to say here, as this challenge is pretty simple once you know exactly what you’re looking for. Various Fortnite Hot Spot locations can be found all over the map and are randomized every time you queue up a game. To find a Hot Spot, you’ll want to open your map and look for the Named Locations that are written in gold – these are Hot Spots.
As you can see in the image above, Junk Junction is written in gold and is a Hot Spot location for that specific game.
To complete this challenge, players will need to deal 100 damage within 30 seconds after using a Launch Pad.
Launch Pads can be hard to find in Fortnite, as they are one of the more rare items. The easiest way to find the Launch Pad locations is to play Team Rumble and look for Supply Drops. Not only will finding a Supply Drop help you with other Fortnite Smash & Grab challenges, but there is a high chance it will contain a Launch Pad.
This challenge can also be completed in a regular game mode. However, it’ll be much harder as the spawn rate of Launch Pads is much smaller in a regular mode than in Team Rumble.
To complete this challenge, players will need to search two chests within 30 seconds of each other.
This one seems pretty simple, right? It should be, as long as you can quickly locate two chests. The best plan for this Smash & Grab challenge is going to be to find a Named Location that is far off the path of the Battle Bus.
From there, you’ll have plenty of chests to choose from. The best thing to do would be to locate both chests before you begin opening them. With this method, you can go directly from one chest to another within the 30 second window. If you’re having trouble with other players getting in your way, it could be worth trying this challenge in Team Rumble.
It is also worth noting that the prestige version of this challenge requires players to open three chests within 30 seconds of each other. For that challenge, it’ll be even more important to locate all three chests before you begin opening them.
To complete this challenge, players will need to pick up three Legendary Items in different matches.
This Fortnite Smash & Grab challenge is pretty simple, and shouldn’t hold you up for too long. It is likely that you’ll come across a Legendary Item naturally while playing. However, if you can’t seem to find one or are in a rush, hop into a game of Team Rumble and you’ll find one in no time.
Legendary Items can be found as floor loot and in chests, but the spawn rate is pretty low. The best way to find Legendary Items in Fortnite is to look in Supply Drops, Loot Carriers, and Llamas.
To complete this challenge, players will need to search three separate Supply Drops within ten seconds of each landing.
As mentioned earlier, the easiest way to find Supply Drops in Fortnite is by playing Team Rumble. While they do drop in regular games, you’ll have a much higher chance of finding one in Team Rumble.
The only thing to note here is that you must search the Supply Drop within ten seconds of it landing. For this, you’ll want to make sure you’re tracking one in the sky and waiting at the Supply Drop location when it lands.
To complete this challenge, players will need to search a chest and ammo box within 30 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus three separate times.
This shouldn’t be too hard and will likely be easy to complete if you’re focused on it. As with other Fortnite Smash & Grab challenges, you’ll want to go to a Named Location that is far off the path of the Battle Bus. From there, you should have plenty of chests and ammo boxes to choose from.
The best place to look is inside houses, as there are usually both chests and ammo boxes inside the majority of houses. As with other timed challenges, if you locate an ammo box and a chest before you search them, then you’ll knock this challenge out in no time.
To complete this challenge, players will need to destroy Loot Carriers within 60 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus three separate times.
The main key for this challenge is knowing the Loot Carriers location. First introduced in the v9.10 Fortnite update, Loot Carries can be found at Hot Spots. As we mentioned earlier, Hot Spots are the locations written in gold on the map.
Once you’ve landed at a Hot Spot, simply look up into the sky and you should see a few Loot Carriers floating around. As long as you shoot it down within 60 seconds of landing from the Battle Bus, you shouldn’t have any issues with this challenge.
