How to complete the “Dig at the top of” encrypted Cipher quest in Fortnite
Time to head to the slabs.
Fortnite’s Cipher event continues with another strange encrypted quest that features nothing but a series of numbers in its quest description. This time, the quest only goes by the following: “18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.4. 126.96.36.199.19.” Luckily, it does hint that players must dig at the top of a particular POI in order to find a unique Easter egg and complete the challenge. This guide will breakdown what these numbers mean and how you can finish this Cipher quest in Fortnite.
How to do the “188.8.131.52.184.108.40.206.4. 220.127.116.11.19” Cipher quest in Fortnite
After the quest description’s numbers are decoded, it is apparent that 18.104.22.168.22.214.171.124.4. 126.96.36.199.19 is pointing players toward Shattered Slabs. Additionally, as you will have to dig at the top of the POI, you must find the highest point in Shattered Slabs to solve for this challenge. As shown below, the dig spot is located in the top-left corner of the named location, where there are layers of rock slabs stacked onto each other.
The dig spot is marked by a small gray dirt hill at the top of the slabs, and you will be required to use your Pickaxe on it in order to dig. Upon doing so, an arcade machine will slowly come up from the ground, and the encrypted Cipher quest should reward you with an additional 10,000 XP.
