Big Mouth's location and questline explained

If you want to complete Big Mouth's questline, then you must first talk to him at the Pizza Pit restaurant, which is located north of Corny Crops.

Once you're in this area, Big Mouth should be easy to find since he's often hanging out within the Pizza Pit itself. Simply talk to him and select the option to begin his questline.

You can find Big Mouth in the Pizza Pit.

Here is every challenge, along with the XP you'll receive, for Big Mouth's quest punchcard:

  • Open Chests in Steel Farm (2) - 30k XP
  • Search an Ice Machine - 30k XP
  • Open Ammo Boxes at Dirty Docks (2) - 30k XP
  • Buy a Health Item from a Mending Machine - 30k XP
  • Search a Supply Drop - 30k XP

Recently added to the game is the Refer a friend program and the Cube Queen skin. Recent 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.

Steel Farm location and chests in Fortnite explained

Finding Steel Farm's location on the Fortnite map can be rather difficult if you've never visited it before, because it's a landmark and, therefore, doesn't appear as a named location.

Steel Farm, thankfully, is quite easy to find - simply head to the island directly east of Corny Corps and there, at the northern end, you'll find Steel Farm.

The location of Steel Farm in Fortnite.

When searching for chests within Steel Farm, it's important to remember that other players can open chests first and not every chest appears in every match. This means that, while you may find a chest under the stairs of Steel Farm in one match, it might not be there in another.

Here are the locations of three chests we found in Steel Farm:

  • Under the stairs
  • In the tower - you will need to destroy a wall to reach it
  • In the attic on the second floor - you will need to build stairs and destroy the ceiling to reach it

Remember to listen for the sound of the chest glowing, because this will tell you if one is nearby!

If you're having trouble completing this challenge, we recommend visiting Steel Farm at the start of a match to ensure you're the first one to visit the location.
