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.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
