Epic Games have activated the Open Water challenges in Fortnite Chapter 2 and if you’re looking to complete them, you have came to the right place. 

Missions are going to be released on a weekly basis on Fortnite and while the days in which they have been activated have been shifted around a fair bit in the past, it seems like Thursday is going to be the day to look out for them in Chapter 2, Season 1. 

Those who have jumped from the Battle Bus since the start of the new season will know that there’s a lot more water, and options to interact with the water as well, since the patch went live. This includes new swimming features, the introduction of boats, fishing and more. 

Epic GamesEpic Games have added tons of new water features in Fortnite, including motorboat vehicles.

With this set of missions being called the ‘Open Water’ set, it might come as a surprise to see that players are not really going to have to use any of those new water features in order to check off all of the tasks this week. 

By completing eight of these challenges, you will unlock a brand new ‘Open Water’ loading screen which shows a character fishing – as seen below. 

Epic GamesHere’s the Open Water Mission loading screen that can be unlocked by checking off eight of this week’s challenges.

So, let’s take a look at what you need to do in order to complete this week’s set of missions.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Open Water challenges:

  • Land at Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs, and Dirty Docks (x1)
  • Hide inside Hideouts in different matches (x3)
  • Search Chests at Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows (x7)
  • Eliminate opponents with a Sniper Rifle (x2)
  • Be crouched within 20m of an opponent for a total of 10 seconds (x10)
  • Deal damage with Pistols to opponents (x500)
  • Search Ammo Boxes in a single match (x7)
  • Get an elimination from 50m or further (x1)
  • Survive Storm phases (x10)
  • Deal damage within 10 seconds of leaving a Hideout (x150)
  • Search hidden ‘O’ found in the Open Water Loading Screen (x1)

You might notice that the final mission requires players to search for a hidden letter, which is O in this case. 

These hidden letters have replaced the hidden battle stars and banners of previous seasons. Find them all and you will unlock a brand new mystery skin. 


Did The Rock just tease he’s getting a Fortnite skin?

After an appearance by a very cartoony-looking float during the Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade, The Rock hinted that he may end up getting a skin in the popular battle royale game Fortnite, although he’s being a bit vague. 

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats are known their pop culture references. Between Pikachu, Goku, and others making appearances, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise that one based on the popular young Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson meme a few years back would make its way into the 2020 version of the parade.

Seemingly because it’s a float, the giant balloon itself seems to be a cartoon representation of the meme, rather than a hyper-realistic one. After one person seemed to point out that it looks a bit like a Fortnite skin, the former wrestler now actor responded in a way that’s raising a few eyebrows.

In response to the comment about his float looking like a Fortnite character, The Rock simply responded with “way ahead of you” and “great minds”. This obviously caused a few people to pause and ask themselves if he just hinted at a Fortnite skin.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any official comment from Epic but the comment is certainly suspicious. While one could make the argument that The Rock was saying that he also had the same thought before the original tweeter, the wink face emoji seen after the tweet is a bit peculiar. Surely he would know not to put that kind of statement out with that emoji unless he meant to hint at it, right?

It’s also a bit odd that he also responded to someone who tweeted that they “shouldn’t give them any ideas”, meaning he could have been totally knowledgable in what he’s doing.

His inclusion in the game also wouldn’t be surprising. Fortnite is known for its crossovers at this point, even allowing for some Icon Series skins based on celebrities like Ninja and others. It could also be a part of a larger WWE crossover, considering there’s a plethora of characters there to make skins out of.

Still, until nothing official is announced, take this with a massive grain of salt. Here’s hoping that if it is real that it will get announced soon, however.
