Fortnite highest elevation locations: Where to visit the 5 highest elevations on the island

Here are the highest elevations to find in Fortnite.

Finding the highest elevations is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.

Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Fortnite Season 8 rewards.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

  • Visit the five highest elevations on the island (5 total, 5 Battle Stars)

You have to find all five of the highest points on the map - think mountains and tall structures. There are quite a few, so discovering the specific ones you need isn't easy at first thought, so this map of highest elevation locations can help:

You know when you are in the right place thanks to a sign post signalling how high you are. Reach that, and the highest elevation location will be added to your challenge total.

If the above map isn't enough help, then read on for the specific highest elevation locations to find...

Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is here! To help you get started with this heist themed season, we have guides on how to alert a Securitry Camera, secure data from Forecast Towers and destroy weakened walls or security gates.

Fortnite Highest Elevation locations explained

Specifically, the highest elevation locations are as follows:

The volcano, in the north-east of the map. It's easy to spot, but note the actual highest point is on the south rim of the volcano. If you land in the wrong place, you can always jump inside, open your glider and find the right point again.

Mountain north-west of Snobby Shores, the one with the three rocks. You're in the right location if you see the highest elevation sign post.

Mountain south of Pleasant Park, with the ring of trees and ramps on the outside. Again, you know you're in the right spot if you find the highest elevation sign nearby.

Polar Peak, on the roof of the tallest part of the castle:

Submarine on the glacier in the map's frozen region, to the south-east of Frosty Flights:

When you are done, there are plenty of other Challenges to take on this week - so keep playing!
