Wondering where to find tanks in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2? Or maybe you want to know how to destroy them? We’ve got all the details you need right here.
The battle between The Seven and The Imagined Order (IO) has erupted in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, with red and blue lines separating the island and IO Airships with siege cannons appearing across the sky.
Another new feature that’s been introduced to Fortnite as part of the ongoing war is the tank; this powerful and sturdy vehicle is perfect for slowly traversing the island and dishing out devastating damage to your opponents.
Below, you’ll find out exactly where to find tanks in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, as well tips on how to drive them – and how to destroy them.
Tanks are one of the big new features in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2.
All tank locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2
Tanks spawn at most of the major locations that are currently controlled by the Imagined Order, which you can find by looking inside the red lines. Right now, most POIs are inside these IO-controlled areas.
Here are all of the locations where you can find tanks in Fortnite:
- Command Cavern (2 tanks)
- The Fortress (1 tank)
- Tilted Towers (1 tank)
- Coney Crossroads (1 tank)
- The Daily Bugle (1 tank)
- Rocky Reels (1 tank)
- Condo Canyon (1 tank)
The areas controlled by the Imagined Order will change over the course of Chapter 3 Season 2, so the places you can find tanks will change too. As long as you follow the red lines, you’ll know where they are.
You can also see the current tank locations marked on the Fortnite map below:

As you can see, Command Cavern is arguably the best place to get a tank, as two of them spawn there. This is a heavily-guarded location, though, so it’s also one of the most dangerous places to visit.
How to drive tanks in Fortnite
Tanks have four seats, with each one serving a different purpose: There’s the driver’s seat, which allows you to move the tank and shoot explosives; the turret, which can fire fast bullets; and two roof seats that allow you to fire your own weapons.
If you’re in the driver’s seat, you can aim the main explosive gun by using your camera controls. It’s slow and difficult to aim, just like the driving controls, but if you can land a shot you’ll be able to destroy buildings and deal 100 damage to opponents.
There’s a special HUD on the screen when driving a tank. To the right, you’ll see a bar with your fuel and a bar that shows how fast you’re moving. Tanks also have a boost function, but it will take up a lot of fuel, so use it sparingly.
Finally, you can enter thermal targeting vision, which can help you spot any opponents that are hiding or approaching from fat away, as they’ll appear bright white on the screen.
Thermal targeting will help you spot enemies from a distance.
Can you destroy tanks in Fortnite?
If you’re unlucky enough to be on the opposite side of a tank, you’ll probably want to know the quickest way to take the vehicle (or the driver) out. Fortunately, there are a few weak spots to look out for.
The easiest way to take down a tank is to shoot the bronze panel just beneath the turrets on the front side of the vehicle, as this will eventually break away and leave the driver exposed to damage.
Another cheap trick is to get inside the tank with your opponent. By doing this, you’ll protect yourself from damage and frustrate your opponents at the same time – although it only works if there are spaces free.
If you want to actually destroy the tank, though, then the best approach is to use Remote Explosives. These deal huge damage to tanks, especially as they received a buff against vehicles in Chapter 3 Season 2.
Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far
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.”
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.
Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25
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.
Leak: S.T.A.R.S. Team and El Chapulín Colorado to Return Very Soon
Fortnite has re-added multiple Item Shop sections to its API, meaning they will be available very soon. Five existing sections have also been removed, suggesting Epic doesn’t plan to bring those Sets back to the Item Shop for a while.
Re-added Item Shop Sections:
- S.T.A.R.S. Team
- El Chapulín Colorado
- Wu Wear (new)
Removed Item Shop Sections:
- Silk Sonic
- Chloe Kim
- Cobra Kai
- Turn The Music Up
The ‘Wu Wear’ section, which was added to the API today, will contain the new Wu-Tang Clan cosmetics; featuring two Outfits, two Bundles and more.
We’ll keep you updated if any additional sections are changed.
