Fortnite’s Meowscles’ Mischief challenges are now live, and one of the week’s most difficult tasks wants you to visit Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site without swimming through any water in one single match.

As always, Epic Games have released 10 more challenges for players to sink their teeth into during Fortnite Season 2, with special agent Meowscles from the Battle Pass the focus for the next two weeks, much like TNTina before them.

Some of the feline fighter’s challenges are easier than others, but perhaps the most difficult this week sees players tasked with visiting Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site in a single match. What makes the challenge even tougher though, is the fact that you won’t be able to dip your toes into any water while attempting it.

Where to find Coral Cove, Stack Shack, and Crash Site for Season 2, Week 5 challenges

Starting this challenge may prove to be the most difficult part, as none of these locations are marked on the map as points of interest, forcing you to rely on your knowledge and hope you know what these names refer to.

For those struggling though, we’ve found all three locations, ensuring everyone knows exactly where they need to go when they decide to take on this task. First off, Coral Cove can be found on the edge of the cluster of islands in the north-west of the map, with a campfire surrounded by buildings using massive shells as roofs.

Coral Cove features a number of buildings with massive shells.

Stack Shack is much trickier to find, as it’s a simple yellow building on an island off the coast of Holly Hedges, with no discernable features to make it stand out.

Finally, the Crash Site can be found on the large island directly west of Pleasant Park, where an airplane has clearly plummeted into the earth and broken in half, leaving wreckage in its wake.

If finding these places is proving difficult, we have marked all three on the map below.

With all three of these locations sitting on islands, vehicles are the best and easiest way to complete this challenge. The Choppa, added in March 17’s v12.20 Update, will likely prove the quickest, as you can fly directly from one to the other, but a boat should theoretically do the same trick, although it will probably take longer and leave you more exposed.

Theoretically, you could also build to each location, however, you would need to gather a lot of materials, and this method would make you ripe for the picking by opponents.

Remember, you must visit all three in the same match, so if you don’t make it to your final stop, or the circle doesn’t permit it, you’ll need to start from scratch in your next game. For those who are also taking on the Deadpool challenges, you can also find out where to find the masked hero’s stuffed unicorn, and where to visit Steel Bridges.


Tfue teases Fortnite return after huge Season 5 update

Fortnite Battle Royale’s Season 5 update might well have tempted Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney into returning to the battle royale, after the creator dropped a big teaser on social media. 

Epic Games rolled out a bumper new patch on December 2, following the huge Galactus event to seal the end for Season 4. Since that time, we have discovered major changes in the game — including new online quests to replace challenges, Mythic Items, and a new currency called Gold Bars.

With the majority of the community excited about those changes, things might be about to get ever better — as Tfue has hinted at an incoming stream on the game.

You know what that means… It could finally sneak back onto his daily Twitch schedule — or not!

There’s new Quests, Bounties and other things for Tfue to explore.

Tfue Fortnite stream?

On December 2, the former Fortnite esports star — who even competed in the World Cup — has set out the terms fans need to follow to get him back playing. It’s quite simple, too.

He tweeted: “Use code “Tfue” and I’ll stream Fortnite tomorrow.”

Whether or not the player will be looking to stream it for hours on end, or just a brief period of time, remains to be seen. One thing is for sure, though, the new patch certainly is jam-packed with new content to work through.

In October, the streamer revealed two years was too much for him to stick to one game. He said: “Two years of cranking 90s was just too much. I had to spice it up and play other things. Plus, I felt like I milked the game so much that, like, me playing it was almost digging myself into a pit.”

Fortnite’s latest update is very much up and running now though, with a number of further changes are expected. New loot bosses are expected to drop alongside The Mandalorian at different locations throughout the season, which will keep the majority of people occupied.

Will Tfue be part of that? We’ll have to wait and see.
