We’re coming to the end of Fortnite Battle Royale’s 14 Days of Summer event, but Epic Games have added the tenth challenge of the two-week mode asking players to set off fireworks which are found along the river bank.

The 14 Days of Summer event is taking place as developers Epic Games enjoy a two week vacation, but made sure to leave something for fans of the popular battle royale title to work on in their absence.

Each day, a new daily challenge is released, with players who successfully complete the task gifted a special reward in the form of a cosmetic item, based on the summer theme.

The day 10 challenge goes live on Independence Day in the United States, and to help mark the holiday, players are tasked with setting off three fireworks on the island, much like the parties and celebrations taking place across America.

Unlike other challenges, players will be battling against their fellow players to launch three fireworks, as there are only six of them on the map in total, and once they are set off, they are unavailable for the rest of the match.

Thankfully, players don’t need to set off the three fireworks in one match, or even in consecutive games, so don’t worry if you land and they’re already gone, as you can keep trying until you finally get one.

The key to completing this 14 Days of Summer challenge will be speed. The quicker you land, the more chance there will be that one of the fireworks is still there, so choose a spot and get there as quickly as possible. There are six total fireworks, and we’ve marked the location of each one on this map so you can see where you need to go.

With just a few days left, players don’t have long to finish the challenges, but if there’s any tasks you have missed, make sure to visit our 14 Days of Summer challenge hub to catch up.

Players will also need to complete this challenge if they’re hoping to attempt the Day 14 challenge, which tasks players with destroying seven grill using the Low n’ Slow harvesting tool. 

This is because the Low n’ Slow pickaxe is actually the reward for completing this challenge, so make sure you’ve finished this one before attempting the final 14 Days of Summer challenge.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
