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 3 Season 3 has arrived! New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

As part of Week 6's challenges, you have to complete the following:

  • 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...

Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived - bringing with it a new Battle Pass, character collection, map locations and Victory Umbrella, along with the return of Victory Crowns. You can now get Indiana Jones skins and cosmetics by completing challenges like collecting relics, damaging opponents in vehicles, and finding the secret door location. It's also good to know how to ride animals, the geyser locations along with where to find a Baller and zipline and use the new Grapple Glove, and if you're after a specific Battle Pass skin, then it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast.

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!
