The second week of v9.01 update for the popular battle royale title officially dropped on Wednesday, May 15, and saw the introduction of the new Tactical Assault Rifle weapon, alongside a much-requested nerf for the Drum Gun.

Just one day later, fans of the game will have a brand new set of seven weekly challenges to complete, with each Battle Star crucial for those hoping to rank up their Battle Pass and earn the rewards for all 100 tiers.

One of Week Two’s challenges requires players to visit three large items which have been scattered across the game’s map. If you’re struggling to find the oversized phone, big piano or giant dancing fish, here’s a handy guide that should point you in the right direction.

How to complete Fortnite Battle Royale’s “Visit an oversized phone, a big piano and a giant dancing fish trophy” challenge

Where can you find an oversized phone?

This challenge is divided up into three sections, although thankfully they don’t need to be completed in a specific order to earn your Battle Stars.

First up, players need to visit one of the giant telephones that were introduced by Epic Games last season. In Season 8, players needed to use the phone to call one of the fast food restaurants that feature in the game, but this time all you need to do is visit one.

These phones have remained on the game’s map since their introduction, and thankfully there are multiple phones on the island, so if you want to go the closest one based on the flight of the Battle Bus, you can use this map to locate it.

Where is the big piano in Fortnite Battle Royale?

To find the giant piano, which is the second part of this challenge, head to the eastern side of the map, and specifically head south-west of Lonely Lodge towards the hero’s house which sits just on the shoreline.

Sitting on top of a hill between the two is a giant piano. Walk over to it, and you should receive a notification that you have completed another section of the challenge.

The big Piano can be found between the hero’s house and Lonely Lodge.

Visit the giant dancing fish trophy

Finally, players need to visit the giant dancing fish trophy to complete this challenge and earn all five Battle Stars.

Fans of the game may remember that the dancing fish trophy used to be on the front of one of the shops at Retail Row, but following the volcano eruption in Season 8, Mega Mall now sits on the location that the fan-favorite area used to sit.

Now, the giant dancing fish trophy sits wedged into the roof of one of the houses to the south of Mega Mall. The building isn’t hard to miss thanks to the giant fish sticking out of the top of it, so build your way up there and finish the challenge.

Here’s where you can find the giant dancing fish trophy.

Once you have completed all three parts, you will be rewarded with five Battle Stars, and well on your way to the 5000 XP reward you get for completing four of the seven challenges.

Fortnite leak hints at Tomb Raider crossover with Lara Croft skin

Fortnite players are convinced that the game’s next major crossover skin will be Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider franchise.

When Season 5 of Epic Games’ popular battle royale launched in December 2020, it came with the theme of ‘bounty hunters’ as Agent Jonesy attempted to “gather the greatest hunters across all realities” to protect The Loop.

So far, we’ve seen hunters including God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and of course The Mandalorian make appearances in the game as playable skins.

Who’s next? Well, fans have been gathering clues – alongside a recent leak – and they think they’ve discovered that the next newcomer to The Island will be none other than Tomb Raider legend Lara Croft.

Is Lara Croft going to be in Fortnite?

According to Fortnite dataminer Mang0e, a new crossover skin codenamed ‘Typhoon’ will be arriving in the game soon. It will be a female character with reactive styles, and the portal on the map indicting her arrival has a ‘flicker’ effect.

While codenames like this one don’t always have a link to the final skin, some fans believe that ‘Typhoon’ is a reference to the opening of 2013 reboot Tomb Raider, where Lara gets stranded on an island after a violent storm sinks her ship.

As for being reactive, there could be a number of possibilities. One could be that as the player receives damage, the skin appears more bloody and bandaged up, which would reflect Lara’s modern appearance in the recent trilogy of games.

Lara Croft would fit the ‘hunter’ theme of Fortnite Season 5.

A recent tweet from the official Tomb Raider account has added even more fuel to the fire. Using symbols, the tweet depicts Lara thinking about three emojis. One of them is a pickaxe, which is a piece of Fortnite iconography.

Of course, Lara uses a pickaxe in her own game, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. Lara would also fit the ‘hunter’ aspect of the season, as she uses her bow and arrow to hunt prey in the games.

The rumors have even got some dedicated fans creating their own artwork. Twitter user @wawa_cwoft mocked up what Lara Croft could look like as a Fortnite character, and it’s got us fully on board with the concept (as if we weren’t already).

But what if it’s not Lara Croft? Well, there’s been heavy speculation about Metroid’s intergalactic bounty hunter Samus Aran joining Fortnite as a crossover skin.

With Kratos representing PlayStation and Master Chief representing Xbox, Nintendo are the only company behind the ‘big three’ consoles who haven’t got a skin representing them yet. Samus could be perfect for the job.

Whoever the new crossover skin turns out to be, fans will be able to get their hands on them soon enough as Season 5 of Fortnite is scheduled to come to an end on March 16, 2021.
