The second round of Skye’s Adventure challenges have been added to Fortnite and one of the Week 8 tasks requires players to fly a Choppa under the purple, red and blue bridges that are scattered across the map.

Fortnite’s weekly Season 2 challenges revolve around the different Agent characters that have been introduced through the latest battle pass.

For Week 8 challenges, players will have to take on the second part of Skye’s Adventure tasks to work their way towards unlocking the Ghost or Shadow variations of the Skye skin.

One of the challenges requires Fortnite fans to fly a Choppa underneath three of the bridges, purple, red and blue, that are located around the map. So here’s what you’ll need to know to check that one off the list.

The most difficult part about this challenge might be getting your hands on one of the Choppa’s, as it is likely that other players will also be looking to complete this challenge.

There are quite a few locations where you can pick one up, however, with the spawn points at The Yacht, The Grotto, Pleasant Park, The Agency, and The Rig along with a couple more scattered across the map.

Once you have your vehicle you will need to make your way to the three of the steel bridges that you had to visit for Week 5’s challenge.

The purple, red and blue bridges are all that’s required for this task and they are all located relatively close to each other towards the west side of the island. Here are the locations of the bridges on the map.

Keep in mind that you do not have to fly under every bridge in the same match, although it shouldn’t be too hard to do so if you manage to get a Choppa early in the game.

This task makes up one of the 10 challenges in the second week of Skye’s Adventure, with a reward of 40,000 XP available for players upon completion.

The ninth 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 9 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.
