Season 9, Week 8 challenges go live on June 27, including this specific challenge that will have you hunting for the large timepieces across the island.

Unfortunately, these clocks are not featured on Fortnite’s minimap, so you’ll have to do some searching if you hope to find them. But, if you would rather complete the challenge quickly and easily, you can use this handy guide which will show you exactly where you need to go.

Where are the clocks on the Fortnite map?

Players are looking for three clocks on the island, but the good news is that they don’t have to be visited in a single match, or in any specific order.

This challenge may be tricky as the clocks are not something you would usually be keeping an eye out for, with one of the timepieces hidden away in a secret location that many would not expect.

The easiest clock to find is in Neo Tilted, which features a digital clock that sits high above the skyline of the futuristic city.

The other two clocks are more traditional versions, with Happy Hamlet, the quaint town in the southern region of the island home to its own clock tower, which sits directly in the middle of the location.

There’s also a sneaky clock hidden away at Sunny Steps which many players probably won’t even think about. Found on a platform in the middle of the area, a sundial sits telling the time using the position of the sun. Walking up to this counts as one of your threeclocks, so if you happen to be nearby, head over and make use of it. 

Epic GamesThe sun dial at Sunny Steps also counts as one of the clocks.

Finally, players will need to head to a rather surprising location for the final clock, that being Junk Junction. Littered among the rubble and metal is the clock tower that formerly sat in Tilted Towers, and lying at the bottom of the now destroyed building is the clockface which sat on top of it.

If you’re still struggling to figure out exactly where you need to go, you can use this map which has the three locations with the clocks in them marked for you.

Once players have completed this challenge, they will be rewarded with five Battle Stars, with any player who completes four of the seven weekly challenges earning an 8,000XP bonus for their troubles.


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.

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.
