Fortnite Trident at Coral Cove location explained

How to unlock the Week 5 Aquaman challenge.

Claim your Trident at Coral Cove is a challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 3.

Part of unlocking the Aquaman skin, this Week 5 Challenge requires you to find the location of the superhero's Trident on the map.

For those who don't know where the Coral Cove location is, it can be tricky to complete - which is where this page comes in:

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.

Looking for more from the season? The new map features several additions - including Sharks, the whirlpools and Season 3 Battle Pass skins.

Fortnite's Trident at Coral Cove location at a glance

For this Week 5 Aquaman challenge, you need to "Claim your Trident at Coral Cove".

Coral Cove is a landmark situated in the north-west corner of the map, next to the giant whirlpool:


You know you're in the right place with the giant shell in the middle of the island.


When you get there, the Trident location isn't on the island itself - but near enough by...

Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.

Where to find the Trident location at Coral Cove explained

From the main Coral Cove island look out to the north-west to find a rock in the near distance.


It's this rock where you can find the Trident. You might be able to see the Trident already - if not, it should appear as you get closer.


Simply swim over, leap onto the rock, and press the button prompt to claim it.


Word of warning - it takes a surprisingly long time to collect the Trident. Hopefully you have no other players around you waiting to take you down.


If claiming it becomes an issue because of it's popularity, then try a different mode with fewer adversaries - such as Team Rumble - or wait until a later week for when most other players have completed the challenge and moved on.

If you haven't already, then complete the other Aquaman challenges from previous weeks to help you claim the skin.
