Where to Launch 3 Fireworks in 'Fortnite' for the Week 4 Challenge

Time to celebrate the New Year.

The world of Fortnite: Battle Royale continues to celebrate 14 Days of Fortnite, but now that Christmas is over, the main challenges are starting to focus more on New Year’s as they involve fireworks.

Week 4 Fortnite challenges for Season 7 were activated Thursday morning, and along with getting eliminations at expedition outposts, players have to launch fireworks at three different locations, no doubt to help celebrate the New Year early next week.

These kinds of fireworks are very different from the ones used in the 4th of July emotes. They aren’t a consumable item or explosive either. Rather, there are a handful specific locations towards the outer edges of the map where players can interact with a single firework candle stuck into the ground. They’re aimed outward towards the ocean and explode just like typical fireworks.

Players only need to launch three fireworks to complete the challenge, and there are seemingly a total of five options across the map, each of them close to the coast.

Here are five available fireworks locations in 'Fortnite'.

The strategy here should be obvious: Land at one of the locations either in the far northeast or southeast and then quickly move to the nearby second location. Then, in a second match, go for one of the other locations, ideally the one in Haunted Hills. Over there, chances are that far fewer enemy players will try to launch this particular firework. Worst case scenario, this one might take up to three matches.

Keep in mind that like chests, each rocket is single-use, so if another player gets to it first then someone else won’t be able to use it after them.

According to the in-game countdown, Season 7 doesn’t end until February 27, 2019. So players have plenty of time to complete this and other challenges before Season 8 is upon us.
