The Challenges for Fortnite Chapter 2 are in, and much like previous seasons of the game, the challenges are a mixed bag of difficulty. Some may take some time, others you’ll probably be able to progress fairly quickly.
One that always seems to be a mystery at first is finding the letters scrawled across the map. This time, it’s the ‘R’ in Fortnite, and the way to pick it up is relatively easy. If you’re familiar with the layout and the major settlements of the new map, this should be a reasonably quick pick-up.
From the drop, head to Slurpy Swamp, and, more specifically, the most North Easterly part of the main building. If you’re not familiar with the new map, the handy map below should give you an idea of where you need to be landing. As always, X marks the spot.
You will know if you are in the right place when you reach the destination and if you see metal pathways with a large pipe coming from inside the building and into the floor below.
The R is directly underneath the metal pathway and the large pipe from the building. You should find that there is enough room between the edge of the pipe and the path to squeeze down. When you’re there, the big ol’ R should be there, ready and waiting for you!
Once complete, you should find on the menu that you have captured the R for the challenge and can move on with the others.
We recommend you proceed with caution when jumping into the Slurpy Swamp. It’s a reasonably accessible landing zone, due to being in excellent proximity to other landmarks with loot. It’s similar to how Shifty Shafts had been in the past. Avoid all of the commotion at the start of the game and get the challenge out of the way early. You’ll be well on your way to the top level of your Battle Pass.
Enjoy the new map for Fortnite Chapter 2.
