The sixth challenge for the 14 Days of Summer event in Fortnite Battle Royale is now live, and tasks you with looting up some floating unicorns in various spots around the map.

There is a new challenge each day for the event, and a reward for each too, as the team at Epic Games gives players something to keep busy with while they enjoy a well-earned break at the studio.

Although each challenge is revealed on the day it goes live, we already know what to expect thanks to data miners, who have already compiled a full list of every challenge and reward.

Epic GamesYou’ll need to search three of these Unicorn floaties for this challenge.

Where to ‘Search Unicorn floaties at swimming holes’

These ‘swimming holes’ in Fortnite are dotted in various watery spots around the map, but we’ve got a map with each one marked for your convenience.

Thankfully, they are somewhat bunched together, with four in the middle-northern part of the map, and three more all close-by, in, or near Paradise Palms.

Once you reach each location, simply approach the floaty and press the interact button on whatever device you’re playing on, like you would with a Loot Llama.

The seven locations for the Unicorn floaties.

All 7 unicorn floaties locations:

  1. Beach Party Location (near Fatal Fields)
  2. Lazy Lagoon
  3. Docks in Lazy Lagoon
  4. Loot Lake
  5. Dusty Divot
  6. Lonely Lodge
  7. Fatal Fields
  8. Paradise Palms

Thankfully, you don’t need to interact with all seven, instead only three, and considering that they are somewhat bunched together you’re likely to be able to get it done in a single match.

Either head for North of the Pressure Plant, or down to Paradise Palms, and provided there’s not too many enemies in your way, you should be able to get it done quickly.

If you’re still working on any of the other challenges for 14 Days of Summer, be sure to check our full guide for every one so far.

They should be available until the end of the 14 days at least, and likely a bit longer, so don’t panic if you don’t get them all done on the day of release, there will be plenty of time to get the rewards before Season 10 begins.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
