Epic Games is making sure that Fortnite week 6 is exciting for everyone, with some of the best challenges we’ve seen all season. This week has players exploring the map for several challenges for different reasons, including the highest elevations in the game.
While you can pretty easily figure out some of the tallest locations, as you get to the 5th, 4th, and even 3rd highest locations, you may be stumped. Some peaks look like they would be taller, while the ones that actually are taller are hard to see. If you’re stumped, you’ll want to check out this guide to see where the 5 highest elevations are in Fortnite.
Completing the Challenge
This challenge is pretty straightforward, and all you have to do is get to the actual location, whether you climb there or land there. For the most part, you’re best off landing at these locations at the start of each game, but you can get to some locations from others, and you can choose to climb them from the ground or build structures. You’ll need to reach each of these locations:
- The Volcano
- Polar Peak
- Skewered Submarine
- Stunt Mountain
- Mountain Near Snobby Shores
Completing this free challenge will earn you 5 battle stars, so it’s a bit time-consuming. You can try to do the challenge in as little as 3 games but may need as many as 5. It doesn’t matter what mode you do it in, but Team Rumble is generally the easiest, so it’s up to you. Progress carries over from match to match, and you don’t have to visit them in any particular order, so feel free to visit these spots at your leisure.
The Volcano is the highest point in Fortnite, at over 170 meters. You can pretty easily get here from the ground since there’s a pathway to the top, but it’s still going to be easiest to fly in. This is pretty easy to figure out since it’s one of the few locations visible from nearly anywhere on the map.
Polar Peak is number 2 on this list, coming in just under the volcano at 170 meters exactly. You can also access this location from the ground fairly easily, but you’re still best off landing here. It’s another easy one to spot, since it has the word “peak” in the name, so you can put 2 and 2 together to assume it’s pretty high up there.
The third location on this list isn’t very obvious and is significantly lower than the other 2 we’ve covered so far at 130 meters. It’s located just southeast of Frosty Flights, and can be tough to see. You’ll see a frozen submarine sticking out over an icy hill. You’ll definitely want to land here at the beginning of the game, or you can even try gliding over from the polar peak, which isn’t too far. It’s hard to access from the ground, requiring you to build structures.
Stunt mountain is tied with another nearby mountain, at just over 110 meters. You can access this mountain by landing on it, but it’s pretty tough to get to from the ground unless you build structures. You can try your luck with the Grappler, which can make it possible to get to the top from the ground. You’ll be able to get this location in the same math as the next location on the list, located right next to it.
Mountain Near Snobby Shores
This is another mountain coming in at 111 meters, right next to the stunt mountain. You can access it the same way you could with the other location and in the same match. It’s located just east of Snobby Shores.
Climbing to the Top
This is a pretty simple challenge, simply tasking you with getting to the highest locations on the map. Fortnite has a scenic map, and you’ll be able to enjoy the view from each of these locations. Epic Games is using these challenges to encourage you to explore the game in new way, and rewards you for participating in the community.
