Fortnite - Cobweb location: Destroying cobwebs in The Authority explained

The best places to find cobwebs in The Authority.

Destroying three cobwebs in The Authority is one of the challenges in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4.

The now abandoned Authority is slowly falling into ruin and, amongst the remaining chests, this former spy headquarters is becoming infested with spiders. It's time to clean the place up a bit and destroy some cobwebs!

Completing this challenge will earn you 25,000 XP, which will help you unlock the new Season 4 Battle Pass skins.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what's changed since? Check out the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass skins, the new Fortnite map changes and the Victory Umbrella.

The Authority location in Fortnite explained

The Authority is located in the centre of the Fortnite map in E4.

The location of The Authority on the Fortnite map.

There are multiple ways to enter The Authority; you can land on the walls and zip line in, glide to the top of the building or simply swim through the main entrance.

In previous seasons, The Authority was home to a number of hostile NPC characters, but now, as the cobwebs suggest, it has been abandoned, making other players the only enemy you have to look out for.

The best way to destroy a cobweb is by shooting it and you'll need to destroy three in total to complete this challenge, so make sure you keep an eye on the counter.

Recent new quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.

Cobweb locations in The Authority in Fortnite explained

To complete this challenge you need to destroy three cobwebs inside The Authority in Fortnite. Thankfully, there's actually quite a lot of cobwebs to be found, so, hopefully, this challenge won't take you very long at all.

When searching for cobwebs, look up into the high corners of rooms or between the metal railings that make up a lot of The Authority.

Look to the ceiling to find cobwebs.

The best place, however, to find cobwebs is on the western side of The Authority's ground floor. You'll be able to find a good number of cobwebs in this area, including one by the former cells, another in an abandoned office and a third cobweb by some crates.

The western portion of the ground floor is best place to find cobwebs.

Cobwebs only need to be shot a couple of times to be destroyed and, remember, you must destroy three to complete this challenge.
