The third week of Fortnite’s Season 3 is almost here and with it comes a whole new set of challenges for players to complete. Here’s what you’ll need to find and collect the Floating Rings at Lazy Lake in Week 3.

The long-awaited release of Season 3 introduced a ton of new changes to Fortnite on June 17, such as new weapons, map changes, and even more weekly tasks for players to complete in-game.

While many of the Week 3 challenges are fairly straightforward, there is one that requires players to collect four Floating Rings at Lazy Lake, which can be quite time-consuming if you don’t know where to look.

Blue Floating Rings have appeared in different points-of-interest around the Fortnite map.

However, we’ve put together a guide on all of the Ring locations, to help you complete your weekly challenges and earn those rewards.

Where to find Floating Rings at Lazy Lake in Fortnite Week 3

For the third week, Fortnite fans will need to travel to the Lazy Lake point-of-interest and search for blue rings that are floating around the nearby buildings.

You will need to collect four of these rings in total to complete the challenge and here’s where they can be found.

  1. The first ring is located above a giant tree in the center of Lazy Lake, next to the Aloto Auto building. You will either have to land on the tree or build your way up to get the ring.
  2. The second collectible can be found just outside of the Big Shots diner. Unlike the first one, you will simply need to bounce from one of the umbrellas to collect it.
  3. You will need to head to the toll booth at the edge of Lazy Lake for the third ring, which is hovering just above the entry barrier.
  4. The fourth and final Floating Ring needed can be found just above the entrance to the ‘No Sweat Insurance’ building.

So there you have it, after you pick up all of the Floating Rings you will have completed the task and receive 35,000 XP for your efforts.

Players have also noticed that Lazy Lake is not the only POI to have the rings appear, making it likely that this will be a recurring Season 3 challenge in the weeks ahead.

As Epic Games are known for adding popular characters from other franchises into their battle royale, some Fortnite fans have also theorized that these Floating Rings could even be a hint towards the addition of a potential Sonic character in the upcoming seasons, although that has yet to be confirmed.

Epic responds to concerns over leaked Fortnite player logins

Fortnite players have made big claims that Epic is leaking player logins through the battle royale’s in-game leaderboard. However, the developer has insisted the system is safe, and there’s been no evidence of hacked accounts through it.

Security scares are no joke, and while developers do their best to keep them underwraps, they can sometimes appear where you least expect them.

That’s what Fortnite pro Jonathan ‘Yung Calculator’ Weber was claiming after being mysteriously logged out of his account. The Built By Gamers player claimed Fortnite’s in-game leaderboards were leaking players’ private information, including email addresses.

People could then use these emails to either try and brute force hack accounts, or reset passwords and kick players out of the game.

“Guys, Epic Games’ infrastructure is so dogmeat that if you don’t have this turned off, people can find your email,” he said.

“That’s kind of bad on its own, but then if they have your email, they can send password resets to your account. That’s fine normally ⁠— on Twitter, it means nothing normally ⁠— but on Epic Games, it logs you out in-game.”

“This has happened to Clix, Nick Eh 30, Nate Hill ⁠— everyone. Epic Games has no idea what they’re doing. Their infrastructure is garbage. They need to change it ⁠— it’s disgraceful.”

However, people aren’t sold on Yung’s story. Fortnite dataminer ‘FNBRUnreleased’ has stated that it’s impossible. Epic’s API doesn’t allow for the sharing of information like Yung and others think.

“It is not possible to view the email of another person’s Epic [account]. Epic’s API does not work like that. I’ve been seeing this rumor from [Yung Calculator] spreading false information,” they claimed.

FNBRUnreleased’s standpoint has been backed up by Epic. The developer published a statement in response to Yung’s claims, saying leaderboards do not leak any players’ secure information.

“We investigated reports that leaderboards were divulging non-public information or causing unauthorized logouts. This is not the case.

“We are certain that affected accounts remain secure, player info (incl. email addresses) isn’t being divulged & any logout issue is resolved.”

For now, players should just always make sure their passwords are strong to best protect against any leak. Plus, turn on two-factor authentication if you can.
