Fortnite Season 4 features awakening challenges that unlock unique cosmetics for each skin. In this guide, learn how to complete each Doctor Doom objective, including how to find the Giant Throne location.

Season 4 of Fortnite Chapter 2 is dominated by Marvel heroes and themes, and one of the new characters introduced is Doctor Doom, a supervillain who wears armor made out of the ultra-durable metal called Vibranium.

The Doctor Doom outfit skin unlocks at Tier 67 of the Season 4 Battle Pass. Once players have the skin in their inventory, they can do three awakening challenges that also yield a unique emote called Victory Von Doom, which sees the character pull out a giant menacing thrown and sit on it.

How to accomplish every Doctor Doom awakening challenge

These objectives are relatively simple as it requires players to venture around the map and win a game. It’s important to note that you can only complete each challenge if you’re wearing the Doctor Doom skin.

Challenge 1 – Visit Doctor Doom’s Statue as Doctor Doom 

Epic GamesThe Doctor Doom statue is located in what was previously called, Pleasant Park.
  1. Equip the Doctor Doom skin and hop in a game.
  2. Exit the Battle Bus and land at Doom’s Domain.
  3. Go to Doctor Doom’s Statue in Doom’s Domain.
  4. Walk up the steps and the first challenge is completed.

As a side note, players should loot up if they don’t land directly at Doom’s Domain, as the Pleasant Park POI is generally a hotspot.

Challenge 2 –  Visit a giant throne as Doctor Doom

The Doctor Doom throne is made of giant rocks and trees.
  1. Equip the Doctor Doom skin and load into a Fortnite game.
  2. Drop out of the Battle Bus and land at the hill southeast of Retail Row
  3. Climb to the top of the hill.
  4. Go near the giant throne made of rocks and trees and the challenge is completed.

The giant throne is facing north and it’s hard to miss, but since Retail Row is another hotspot for players, it’s advised to loot beforehand if you land too far away from the objective.

Challenge 3 – Get a Victory Royale as Doctor Doom to unlock emote

  1. Equip the Doctor Doom skin.
  2. Instead of a regular game, jump into Team Rumble mode.
  3. Win a game of Team Rumble.
  4. Make sure to emote at the Victory Royale screen and the awakening challenge is finished.

Any other game mode works, but Team Rumble is much quicker and more comfortable for players to complete this challenge.

And that’s it! Once you have all three challenges completed, the Victory Von Doom emote will be added to your inventory for use everywhere and anywhere.


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.

Where to find Upstate New York in Fortnite Season 4

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.
