Epic Games have made a number of Groot Awakening challenges available to complete in Season 4. Here, we will show you how to complete them all, featuring Sapling Groot, Heart-Shaped Island, and Friendship Monument locations. 

There are cosmetics up for grabs as part of this task list, so completing each of them quick should be any player’s top priority. After all, big crossovers like this don’t come around all too often. Many are just shoved into the Fortnite Item Shop.

Challenge 3 – Emote as Groot at the Friendship Monument

  1. Drop into Fortnite.
  2. Select the Groot skin.
  3. Jump out of the Battle Bus at Sweaty Sands.
  4. Head over to smaller settlement to the left of the location.
  5. Find the monument there, and emote in front of it. Done!

Be careful not to forget one all important step here, which is to pick the Groot skin. If you don’t do that, you can forget about completing this challenge because it won’t register.

Fortnite Groot Awakening challenge rewards

One you have ticked off each of those, be sure to check out the rewards you have received for doing so. These include the following:

  • Sapling Groot Back Bling (Level 32)
  • Battle Brothers Rocket Pet Emote (Level 46)

As you can see here, these challenges can only be completed at certain levels so be sure to do them at the right time. It’s also worth noting that the emote will unlock Rocket as a Back Bling as well, so if you have it selected the character will appear on Groot’s back.
