Ride the Slip Stream around Neo Tiled and Mega Mall
To complete this staged challenge, you’ll first need to fly through the Slip Stream around Neo Tilted and follow this up by doing the same thing around Mega Mall.
One complete rotation of the Slip Stream will count towards your challenge progress and we’d recommend keeping an eye on the UI to the bottom left of your screen to see when you’ve ticked it off.
Here’s Jactus Cack (great name), showing us how it’s done.
Visit all Sky Platforms
For this challenge, you’ll need to visit every Sky Platform across Fortnite’s map. You’ll need to visit a total of seven, but thankfully they are quite easy to see in the sky so you shouldn’t have too much trouble locating them all.
Simply land on a Sky Platform for it to count towards your challenge progress.
Make sure you give our Sky Platforms Locations guide a read if you want to complete this challenge without any fuss.
