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.

How to compete in Fortnite’s first Box Fight Tournament: date, prizes

Fortnite is about to launch its first-ever Box Fight Tournament, a creative 1v1 competition in an arena designed by winners of last month’s Princess Castle Creative Contest. If you’re interested in competing, here’s everything you need to know.

Fortnite is a competitive game at heart, but it’s also a wonderful platform for creative players. It’s the reason why the creative mode is so popular. Players can build their own islands and share them with others.

Last month, Fortnite celebrated its third birthday by hosting the Princess Castle Creative Contest. Essentially, players had to create and submit their own version of a Box Fight map.

For those who don’t know, Box Fighting is when two players are fighting within one tile of each other and inside a box. It’s unique in the sense that it combines competitive and creative skills.

Two players named HassanFTN and Shride won the contest. Their arena, named “Island of Dreams” (9005-6737-3429), was chosen to be showcased in the first official Box Fight Tournament.

How to compete in the Box Fight Tournament

To compete in the Box Fight Tournament, all you need to do is look for the Box Fight Tournament LTM on the main menu once it’s available.

However, there is an eligibility requirement. Players will need to have reached Open League (Division II) in Arena before the tournament begins. Don’t stress if you haven’t though. It’s very easy to do and will only take a couple of games.

The format is pretty straightforward. Players will duke it out in a one on one Box Fight against other players in their region.

It will follow a traditional tournament structure with multiple rounds. The more rounds you win, the higher you will climb. The player with the most wins at the end of the tournament is the winner.

Box Fighting requires calculated attacks and solid defense.

When does the Box Fight Tournament start?

Fortnite players don’t need to wait long. The Box Fight Tournament begins on Wednesday, October 28, which means it’s only one sleep away.

However, that also means if you haven’t ranked up enough in Arena to be eligible, you’ll need to hop in and get started before it’s too late.

Box Fighting is an important skill in Fortnite. In many ways, it’s what separates the wolves from the sheep.

If you’ve mastered it, the tournament is a good way to test your skills. Don’t be disheartened if you haven’t though. Taking part in the tournament is a good way to improve.
