Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 is rolling on for some time yet, and a brand-new week means another set of challenges called Location Domination are on their way for fans of the game to sink their teeth into on Thursday, April 30.

The eleventh season of Fortnite Season 2 kicked off with the v12.50 Update, which introduced a major nerf to the Heavy Sniper Rifle, and made some massive adjustments to aim assist in the hopes that it would lower the effectiveness and remove some of the perceived advantage controller players have when locking on to enemies.

Now, players will have a new set of challenges to take on as they attempt to complete their Battle Pass and unlock their remaining Season 2 cosmetics, although these challenges are unlike anything we’ve seen in the popular battle royale title before.

The Location Domination challenge set includes 10 challenges, however each task comes with three distinct tiers, meaning players will need to work their way through multiple stages of the same challenge to actually complete it. While we’ve seen challenges like this in the past, this is the first time we’ve seen a full set of them, meaning Fortnite fans will really need to grind if they want to earn the XP rewards from Location Domination.

The good news is that none of the challenges seem likely to be particularly difficult, but rather will just be time-consuming as you head to different locations across the island in search of Chests, Henchmen, or enemies.

Chests need to be opened at The Grotto using the ID Scanner, players or Henchman must be eliminated at Pleasant Park, and you’ll need to toss some Henchmen overboard at The Yacht if you want to complete these tasks. You can view the full list of Week 11 Location Domination challenges below, thanks to dataminer iFireMonkey.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 Location Domination challenges

  • Eliminate 5/10/100 players or Henchmen at Pleasant Park
  • Open 3/5/10 Chests locked by an ID Scanner at The Grotto
  • Throw 3/5/10 Henchmen overboard The Yacht
  • Destroy 3/7/15 Gnomes at Camp Cod or Fort Crumpet
  • Deal 500/1,500/10,000 damage to players at The Agency
  • Collect 250/750/1,500 metal at Hydro 16 or Compact Cars
  • Search 5/15/30 ammo boxes at Lazy Lake
  • Search 5/15/30 Chests at Retail Row
  • Catch 5/25/100 fish at Slurpy Swamp
  • Place top 10 3/6/10 times after landing at Dirty Docks

Completing each challenge also offers tiered rewards, with 10,000, 25,000, and 55,000 XP up for grabs every time you complete part of the task, a massive reward for players who are aiming to hit Tier 100 in their Battle Pass before the end of the season.

The challenges officially go live on Thursday, April 30, so get ready to jump into the action and take on these tasks as Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 2 comes to a close.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
