Interact with a dead drop in Weeping Woods explained

The legendary questline of Week 2 in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is surprisingly straightforward.

Instead of searching for locations where to place rubber ducks such with the previous week, all you have to do is find and interact with a terminal in one specific spot.


This takes place in Weeping Woods, which isn't quite the most popular spot to land in battle royale, but it's worth the exception. Completing this first step will grant you 45k EXP, which is a nice boost for your battle pass.

Now that we've learned the gist of the task, let's look into the exact location.

The latest event is the Fortnite Ariana Grande concert, which includes challenges such as Rift Tour poster locations and emote in front of a camera. The alien invasion of Fortnite continues with the arrival of mothership abducting, UFOs, Alien Artefacts, Cosmic Chests and ray guns. There are time-limited Legendary Quests starting every Wednesday, as well as the on-going Character Collection and Fish Collection to complete!

Fortnite Dead drop location in Weeping Woods explained

As the challenge indicates, the dead drop terminal is found in Weeping Woods.

If you're looking at the map before jumping off the bus, here's the spot where you should land:


Specifically, you want get close to the northern point of the area, right before the river. In between the first few trees you will find the dead drop, which is an interactable object on top of a tree trunk and surrounded by rocks.


From all, all that is left to do is interact with it, and the challenge will be over. It's a straightforward task, but do beware of other players, as they will most likely land on the same spot. In our experience, most of them won't hesitate to attack on sight.

Next in the Week 2 Legendary Quest is finding a body scanner location.
