Put down the fishing rod and go complete some challenges. 

Epic Games

Fortnite Chapter 2 may be a reboot of the game, but the challenges are the same as season 10. A set of tasks is available to players each week, giving them experience points when completed. Points acquired increase a player's tier level, which unlocks more content, especially if they have a season Battle Pass. 

Challenges are added every Thursday during the season, but due to the new season starting Tuesday, there's already a set of missions for players to complete. 

New World challenges

The first batch of challenges for Fortnite Chapter 2 gets players to explore the new island along with the added activities such as fishing and riding a motorboat. There's one challenge that needs a little help.

That fancy new loading screen players sit through has a clue to this challenge. Off to the side is a spot where the "F" is located. More specifically, the letter is on a hill just to the east of Lazy Lake. See the map below for the specific spot.

Players who completed the New World challenges received a second loading screen called Open Water. In the background, there's a beach house and right below it is the "O." That house can be found at the northern part of Craggy Cliffs. Search underneath it to find the "O."
