The latest set of challenges have arrived in Week 4 of Fortnite’s Chapter 2, Season 3, and one of them is to complete a lap at Motorboat Mayhem. Here’s the quickest and easiest way to do it.

The challenge is now officially live, having gone up on Thursday, July 9 alongside the rest of the week’s tasks, such as opening chests at Salty Springs or getting eliminations at Frenzy Farm.

This isn’t one that can just happen coincidentally as you traverse the Fortnite map, though, so you’ll have to seek out where to go and what to do.

Where is Motorboat Mayhem in Fortnite?

Motorboat Mayhem is located towards the southern side of the Fortnite Season 3 map, slightly northwest to Misty Meadows or directly east from Rickety Rig.

As it is an unnamed location, you won’t simply be able to pinpoint it on the map while in the Battle Bus, so we’ve put a marker where you need to go to reach Motorboat Mayhem here. As you can see, its near Lazy Lake and placed just next to the Hydro 16 dam.

How to get a motorboat & complete the challenge

Getting a motorboat to complete the challenge is actually the easy part, as they’re located all over the map now thanks to the map being submerged in water.

Obviously, the closest locations to grab one would be Misty Meadows or Lazy Lake, but you could also drive in from Rickety Rig if you prefer to land there.

Once you’ve got your boat, you’ll need to head to Motorboat Mayhem and simply follow the track laid out for you – it’s simply enough, but you’ll want to get it done first time ideally so make sure you get it right.

You can find motorboats almost anywhere on the Fortnite map, especially if you’re near water – which you can’t really avoid in Season 3.

Motorboat Mayhem challenge rewards

For completing the challenge, you will earn 35,000 XP to help you toward Tier 100 in your Battle Pass, and you’ll get the same amount of XP for each challenge you complete as always.

So, if you’re looking to level up your Battle Pass as quickly as possible, this is an easy enough challenge that should help you get a step up.


Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
