Interact with a dead drop in Weeping Woods explained

The legendary questline of Week 2 in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is surprisingly straightforward.

Instead of searching for locations where to place rubber ducks such with the previous week, all you have to do is find and interact with a terminal in one specific spot.

This takes place in Weeping Woods, which isn't quite the most popular spot to land in battle royale, but it's worth the exception. Completing this first step will grant you 45k EXP, which is a nice boost for your battle pass.

Now that we've learned the gist of the task, let's look into the exact location.

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

Fortnite Dead drop location in Weeping Woods explained

As the challenge indicates, the dead drop terminal is found in Weeping Woods.

If you're looking at the map before jumping off the bus, here's the spot where you should land:

Specifically, you want get close to the northern point of the area, right before the river. In between the first few trees you will find the dead drop, which is an interactable object on top of a tree trunk and surrounded by rocks.

From all, all that is left to do is interact with it, and the challenge will be over. It's a straightforward task, but do beware of other players, as they will most likely land on the same spot. In our experience, most of them won't hesitate to attack on sight.

Next in the Week 2 Legendary Quest is finding a body scanner location.
