Now that Fortnite loopers have scouted out the terrain and are familiar with the layout of the land, phase three of the hunt for Riot can begin. In order to prepare for the task, the Special Forces NPC recommends that players stock up on ammunition and gear up before proceeding to the showdown.
It goes without saying that during a firefight, guns in Fortnite burn through ammo faster than wood on a campfire. So fierce is the fight that keeping large reserves of ammo on hand is the number one rule in-game. A single extra magazine can often determine the fate of a player.
Likewise, the Special Forces NPC wants players to take no chances while engaging with Riot. There is no second chance in a firefight, so going in prepared is of the utmost importance.
To ensure loopers have all the ammo they would need, the NPC is tasking players with looking and searching for five ammo boxes. To compensate players for the tedious task, 30,000 experience points will be awarded to those who are able to carry it out.
Note: Fortnite week 7 Epic challenges go live on July 22nd, 10:00 a.m. ET.
How to complete the “Search ammo boxes” Fortnite week 7 Epic challenge
In order to complete this Fortnite challenge, players will have to locate and search for five ammo boxes in-game. Luckily for loopers, unlike loot chests, ammo boxes can be found in nearly every nook and cranny of the island.
Here are a few locations to search for ammo boxes:
- Sharky Shell
- Apres Ski
- Hydro 16
- Risky Reels
- The Durr Burger
These locations are secluded in nature, as they are unimportant in the current season. Therefore, players should be able to easily find at least 5 of the 10 ammo boxes at the POIs without having to worry about opponents lurking nearby.
Alternatively, rather than landing at these locations to exclusively look for ammo boxes, players can simply search for them over the course of multiple matches. This is considering that landing at these locations is a double-edged sword, as they are located on the edge of the map, and thus close to the storm.
