It's coming straight for us!

Enter a Chrome Vortex is a current challenge in Fortnite, tasking players with seeking out the spinning chrome tornados found around the map.

Finding a Chrome Vortex in Fortnite is pretty simple if you know where to look, as they can be found around the map in heavily-chromed areas. They have the ability to chrome your character and can be a great way to reposition to a different area.

Here's how to enter a Chrome Vortex in Fortnite.

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.

Once you've tracked down a Chrome Vortex, just walk or jump into it and you will start to fly upwards. You don't need to control your character here, just ride the twister upwards. As you get to the top, push your character away from the centre of the vortex, and you will break free. From here, you will be free-falling, until your Glider is activated.

Note that entering a Chrome Vortex will also apply the Chromed effect to your character. Completing this challenge will reward you with 15k XP and progress in The Herald quests. Complete these quests to earn exclusive gear based on The Herald.
