Fortnite Challenge Location: Where To Complete A Lap Of A Desert Race Track

Published

on

Off to the races with this set of Season 9, Week 5 challenges in Fortnite: Battle Royale. Vehicle racing has been a thing in this game for a while, but it hasn’t really shown up in challenges outside of the time trials from Season 5 and 6, which were sort of their own thing.

But this week we’ll be bouncing around the map and driving around the various racetracks the island has to offer, starting with by far the most obvious. Read on for where to complete a lap of a desert race track in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Most people who have played this game for any length of time know where we’re going: everything is clearly visible from the map. But just as a bit of a refresher, we’re going to the northern part of the desert biome, at the Eastern edge. Here’s where you want to drop:

And here’s what it looks like from the air:

The starting line is on the interior side of things, and there should be some quadcrashers handy either in the garage or right there on the track. You’ll want either a quadcrasher or a baller, ideally, but I suppose a driftboard would make quick work of the track as well. Just find the starting line and go: it’s a surprisingly long track, so you might want to do this in team rumble so you don’t get blown up on your way.

An interesting note about this particular racetrack: it actually predates the desert, at least to some degree. The racetrack goes all the way back to the original map, even before the very first revamp that came along season 2.

It was very different in those days, however: for one thing, it was pretty unclear that it was a race track at all: I always just called it the squiggle, because that was really it’s only defining feature. It was an odd little unnamed POI.

It first became clear that it was a racetrack when the Fortnite got its first vehicle: the shopping cart. A far cry from the baller, I know. But when that arrived people started racing around the track with them, but it wasn’t until the beginning of Season 5 and the introduction of the desert biome that it entered into its current state.

That’s when it got pavement, the larger buildings at the front and back, the red and green lights and all of that. Crucially, this is when we also got the ATK, the first vehicle for which it really made sense to race around at track with. Oddly enough, it never showed up for a challenge that season.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
