How to launch off of Air Vents and complete all 5 Fortnite Air Vent locations
For the Week 2 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:
- Launch off of Air Vents in different matches (5 total, 5 Battle Stars)
Across the map are numerous Air Vents, small square structures introduced to Fortnite Season 9, tying into the season's new futuristic theme.
They're found dotted around three main locations - Neo Tilted, Mega Mall, and Loot Lake - as well as on top of every Sky Platorm.
They aren't as easily visible from the Battle Bus as those platforms - but you can of course go straight to one of those anyway, or find them easily on rooftops in those three other locations - so it shouldn't be hard to spot one from afar.
You can also visit them from the ground, too, be that a rooftop one in a city or a Sky Platform, thanks to the cyclones that can help you fly up to the platforms themselves or various means of scaling the buildings in towns.
In order to complete the launch off of Air Vent locations challenge, you need to visit five and jump onto them (launching you up in the air) in five separate matches. Even if you jump on five different vents in one match, that'll still only count as one.
As with other challenges, you must do these as you play matches (you cannot enter the map without other players) so you'll have to do your best to avoid opponents as you attempt to find each location - the good news though is that you can quit out of matches once you've logged on and load straight back into another match. There's no need to wait until you're eliminated naturally in order for it to still count, like you do with most challenges.
When you are done, there are plenty of other Challenges to take on this week - so keep playing!
