Fortnite’s latest collaboration with DC Comics’ Batman features new “Welcome to Gotham City” challenges for players to complete with the in-game event.

The Fortnite x Batman event brings a ton of new additions to the battle royale game like map changes and cosmetics for players to collect.

Fortnite’s latest update also brings new Batman-themed “Welcome to Gotham City” challenges and rewards that gives fans the chance to snag the new Batman Glider, sprays and more.

Epic GamesPlayers can unlock the new cosmetics by completing “Welcome to Gotham City” challenges.

Where to defuse Joker Gas Canisters

The canisters are a reference to one of Joker’s signature weapons: Smilex gas, which kills victims with a fit of uncontrollable laughing, often leaving them with a smile on their face.

Normally, we would provide you with a map of the exact locations of the canisters, but they seem to spawn in different spots every match, so there’s no surefire way to exactly track them down.

Epic GamesThe canisters flash and emit a sound that will let players find them.

To find the canisters, the best strategy is to hightail it to a named location on the map and listen for the beeps that the canisters emit.

The gas is actually on a timer as well, and if players don’t diffuse them in time they’ll explode with a little laughing sound, but don’t deal damage to players.

A limited amount of time means that players might only be able to get one canister per round, which means it could take a few matches to complete this challenge.

HarryNinetyFour / YoutubePlayers also have to activate Bat Signals to complete another challenge.

Other “Welcome to Gotham City” challenges

As part of the Batman x Fortnite event, players also have to “Light up different Bat Signals outside of Gotham City”, which unlike the gas canisters, has no timer, which makes it possible to complete in one round, if you’re lucky.

There are more challenges than just these two and you can find the complete list right here at Dexerto.

So get your Bat gas masks ready, try not to laugh too hard and we’ll see you in Gotham City for the new Fortnite challenges.


How to do secret Cleanse Tanks & Escape Fortnite Season 4 challenges

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

The tanks are side-by-side, although they’ll look more green and gnarly compared to the picture above.


Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
