Fortnite’s Most Wanted quests give players new ways to have a lot of fun with the newly added mechanics. For the “Going in Loud” subcategory of the Most Wanted quest, you will have to cause as much chaos and mayhem as possible. One of the missions you will have to do is to throw and detonate a gas can, which might sound complicated, but actually isn’t. To help you quickly advance through these quests, here is how you can throw and detonate a gas can in the Fortnite Most Wanted quest.

How to complete the Throw and detonate a Gas Can quest in Fortnite Most Wanted

To throw and detonate a gas can in Fortnite Most Wanted, you will first have to find one of those cans. Though they are relatively spread out, there are some locations on the map where you will always find at least one. If you go to the garage northwest of the Citadel, you can find more than a dozen gas cans sitting around. This is probably the best location to find the cans on the map, and you can see the exact spot of the garage, signified by the blue checkpoint, in the image above.

The way the quest is worded, you would think that you have to detonate the gas can while it’s in the air. However, you don’t have to do anything so complicated. Just pick up one of the gas cans from the garage (or any other location on the map) and throw it in front of you. Then, just aim at the gas can and shoot it.

After a few seconds, the gas can will detonate and this Fortnite Most Wanted quest will be done. If you are wondering why there are two objectives for this Fortnite Most Wanted quest, it is because both throwing the can and detonating it count for the objective.

That means you can actually shoot a random can before you toss one and still complete the objective if you then go find one to toss. Obviously, that’s a little less efficient, so we recommend heading to the garage and doing it as we suggest above.
