How to get chrome-ified while driving in Fortnite

How to complete this Herald challenge.

Get chrome-ified while driving is one of The Herald challenges you need to complete to unlock the Burning Ember Herald Skin in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 4.

While you don't get XP for completing this challenge, you will receive the Chrome-Gratulations Emoticon as a reward, and progress one step closer towards unlocking the Burning Ember variant of The Herald skin.

We've detailed two easy methods on how to get chrome-ified while driving in Fortnite below, to help you unlock all of The Herald rewards as soon as possible.

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.

How to get chrome-ified while driving in Fortnite

There are two easy ways to get chrome-ified while driving in Fortnite:

  • Drive a vehicle into a chrome tornado
  • Use Chrome Splash on a vehicle while driving

The fastest way to get chrome-ified while driving if using the chrome tornado method is to land in an area that usually has a vehicle, which is also close to a tornado. For this reason, we recommend landing at the gas station southwest of Herald's Sanctum, as there's a chrome tornado you can drive into at Herald's Sanctum.

Land at the gas station, then make your way to the chrome tornado.

There are other chrome tornados that you can identify by the white swirl mark on the map, but they move location every match, whereas the chrome tornado at Herald's Sanctum currently doesn't move.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.

Alternatively, you can get chrome-ified while driving by getting some Chrome Splash and using it on the vehicle you're in by changing seats. You can change seats while driving a vehicle by clicking the right thumbstick if playing on consoles.

You can find Chrome Splash by destroying structures covered in the silver chrome substance, including trees, rocks, and walls. You'll know a place is covered in chrome if it's purple or silver on the map.

The areas you'll find the most Chrome structures at are:

  • Shiny Sound
  • Lustrous Lagoon
  • Herald's Sanctum
  • Shimmering Shrine
  • Cloudy Condos
Areas with lots of chrome structures in Fortnite.

It's also worth noting that if you're playing with a friend, you can get them to throw Chrome splash at the vehicle you're driving to get chrome-ified, instead of having to do it yourself.
