Fortnite's Trident at Coral Cove location at a glance

For this Week 5 Aquaman challenge, you need to "Claim your Trident at Coral Cove".

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.

Where to find the Trident location at Coral Cove explained

From the main Coral Cove island look out to the north-west to find a rock in the near distance.

It's this rock where you can find the Trident. You might be able to see the Trident already - if not, it should appear as you get closer.

Simply swim over, leap onto the rock, and press the button prompt to claim it.

Word of warning - it takes a surprisingly long time to collect the Trident. Hopefully you have no other players around you waiting to take you down.

If claiming it becomes an issue because of it's popularity, then try a different mode with fewer adversaries - such as Team Rumble - or wait until a later week for when most other players have completed the challenge and moved on.

If you haven't already, then complete the other Aquaman challenges from previous weeks to help you claim the skin.
