One of the challenges for Week 6 of Season 5 in Fortnite Battle Royale asks players to search a total of seven chests in Lonely Lodge. This guide will show you all of the possible locations.

Located on the far eastern side of the map, Lonely Lodge is one of the lower traffic areas so trying to find all seven chests in one game could prove to be a difficult task.


Luckily, there is no limit on how many times you can land in the area before finally completing this challenge.

If you’re in a hurry, Fortnite Chests is the perfect tool for pinpointing every potential chest spawn in a particular location. The image below shows all of the possible Lonely Lodge chest locations:

While the image shows more than enough chest locations to complete the task, there is no knowing how many chests will spawn in per match so don’t count on completing the challenge in one game.

Remember to complete any game that you open a chest in (by being eliminated or by securing the victory royale) – if you return to the lobby early your challenge progress might not be applied correctly.

This Battle Pass exclusive challenge is not classed as “HARD” so you’ll only receive the standard XP reward. However, it will still allow you to unlock the various Season 5 items and cosmetics quicker than playing a normal match.


Fortnite Flare Gun return leaked with major buff

A new Fortnite leak has claimed that the Flare Gun could be set to make a return in the near future, and it would be receiving quite a substantial buff too. 

As Fortnite seasons unfold, weapons and items are regularly cycled in and out of the loot pool – either for being too strong, too weak, or not fitting the theme of the new patch. 


This means that some fan-favorite weapons might disappear from the game for one reason or another, either to return at some point later in the future or to never be seen again. 

In the case of the Flare Gun, which was initially added to the battle royale back in the v13.20 update but it was removed at the start of Chapter 2, Season 4. With some fans hoping to see it return, especially given the new fire mechanics, it appears as if Epic have got something up their sleeve.

The Flare Gun first appeared in a small short video from Epic Games.

Following the v14.30 update, which gave a buff to the Combat Shotgun and also brought the Rally Royale limited-time mode to the party, leakers uncovered a handful of changes coming in the future.

This includes the Flare Gun, which as leaker Mang0e_ pointed out, could be set to return to the battle royale after a spell in the vault, but with a little bit of a boost too. 

“The flare gun may be coming back to core modes soon,” the leaker tweeted on October 15. “The duration for marking enemies was re-added and increased to 15 seconds.”


While this is not set in the stone, as the leaker tweeted that it may return, some fans will be hoping that the Flare Gun does return – especially given its reported buff.

This increase in time with marking enemies would certainly make players think twice about ignoring the chance to use the Flare Gun. But, as ever, it’ll be up to Epic to make the final call.
