Fortnite - Steel Farm location: Where to open chests in Steel Farm explained

How to make a start on Big Mouth's questline.

Opening chests in Steel Farm is the first challenge for the Big Mouth punchcard in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.

If you want to start this quest punchcard, you must first visit Big Mouth's location and, after talking to him, travel to Steel Farm's location to start opening chests.

Completing each challenge from the Big Mouth punchcard will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 8 Battle Pass.

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.

If you want to complete Big Mouth's questline, then you must first talk to him at the Pizza Pit restaurant, which is located north of Corny Crops.

You can find Big Mouth in the Pizza Pit.

Steel Farm location and chests in Fortnite explained

Finding Steel Farm's location on the Fortnite map can be rather difficult if you've never visited it before, because it's a landmark and, therefore, doesn't appear as a named location.

Steel Farm, thankfully, is quite easy to find - simply head to the island directly east of Corny Corps and there, at the northern end, you'll find Steel Farm.

The location of Steel Farm in Fortnite.

When searching for chests within Steel Farm, it's important to remember that other players can open chests first and not every chest appears in every match. This means that, while you may find a chest under the stairs of Steel Farm in one match, it might not be there in another.

Here are the locations of three chests we found in Steel Farm:

  • Under the stairs
  • In the tower - you will need to destroy a wall to reach it
  • In the attic on the second floor - you will need to build stairs and destroy the ceiling to reach it

Remember to listen for the sound of the chest glowing, because this will tell you if one is nearby!

If you're having trouble completing this challenge, we recommend visiting Steel Farm at the start of a match to ensure you're the first one to visit the location.
