The Fortnite Dockyard Deal challenges have been revealed for Week 4 of Chapter 2, Season 1, and one of them involves jumping a motorboat through flying rings.

Week 4’s Dockyard Deal challenges heavily revolve around the Dirty Docks – one of the new locations added to the Chapter 2 map. If you complete eight of them, you’ll be rewarded with a new loading screen.

One of the objectives asks players to jump a motorboat through different flaming rings, and while you only need to soar through three, we’ve got you covered with every location just in case. Remember that you need to own the Battle Pass to complete the challenges!

Epic GamesA map showing the locations of the flaming rings.

At the dam east of Slurpy Swamp

Epic GamesHead to the dam east of the swamp for this ring.

This ring is found right at the top of the massive dam that’s east of Slurpy Swamp, and northwest of Misty Meadows.

To grab it, sail the boat through the middle hole at the top, and boost off the edge to gain traction and speed through the air.

Between Frenzy Farm and Retail Row

Epic GamesOne ring is between Frenzy Farm and Retail Row.

This ring can be found at the bendy river sandwiched between Frenzy Farm and Retail Row, on the western side of the map.

To reach it, players will need to use the motorboat’s boost feature to go up, over the two logs that are resting on the rock, to create a makeshift slope.

Southwest of Misty Meadows

Epic GamesHead southwest of Misty Meadows to find a ring.

Players will need to head southwest of Misty Meadows to find this flaming ring situated on the edge of a hill by the beach.

It will need to be reached by boosting off of the edge of the cliff – a slow drive just won’t give you enough power to get you through it.

Southeast of Frenzy Farm

Epic GamesDrive your motorboat southeast of Frenzy Farm for a ring.

Just southeast of Frenzy Farm sits a river that splits off into four different directions, and right in the middle of this sits a small island – the ring is here.

Just simply use the motorboat’s boost feature to slide up the side of the dirt, and you’ll sail through the fiery circle with ease.

South of Slurpy Swamp

Epic GamesA ring hides south of the swamp.

Just south of the swamp, players will find another set of logs balanced against a rock that create a slope.

From there, rush up the beams using the boat’s boosters and you’ll soar through the flaming ring effortlessly.

Southwest of Lazy Lake

Epic GamesOne of the rings is southwest of Lazy Lake by a waterfall.

This ring can be found south-west of Lazy Lake, and sits at the top of the small waterfall that leads into the giant lake north of Misty Meadows.

Make sure you take the boat down from Lazy Lake rather than up to it, otherwise you’ll be on the wrong side. Just boost off the waterfall and you’ll fly right through the middle of the flames.

Northwest of Lazy Lake

Epic GamesSoar off the giant waterfall by Lazy Lake for a ring.

Head northwest of Lazy Lake and you will find another flaming ring at the top of a much bigger waterfall than before.

Like the circle to the southwest, simply boost off of the top to gain enough speed to glide right through the middle.

West of Slurpy Swamp

Epic GamesAnother ring is just west of Slurpy Swamp.

Players will need to head west of Slurpy Swamp to find the flaming ring situated at the top of a cluster of rocks.

Like some of the other circles, this one is grabbed by boosting up a pair of logs that resemble a wooden ramp.


So, there we have it! Those are all of the flaming ring locations for Fortnite’s Dockyard Deal challenges. As we mentioned earlier, you will need to complete this task as well as a further seven to unlock the loading screen, which will give you a chance of finding Week 4’s hidden ‘T’ on the map!

How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

Galactus Fortnite event leaks

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
