Fortnite is back with a new week and new challenges along with it. One of the challenges states that the player must drive from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows within 4 minutes. This challenge is similar to one from the 5th week, which challenged the player to drive from Slurpy Swamp to Carry Corner in less than 4 minutes. Another condition applied by them is that the player cannot get out of the car in between the challenge. Even though it seems impossible to complete, following the steps given in this article may help you a great deal.
Gearing up for the challenge
To begin preparing for the challenge, you must first make sure to land on the west side of Sweaty Sands beside the gas station. There you will find a sports car. Make sure to reach it before the other player as it is very efficient and faster than the other vehicles.
Before starting, make sure to fill the tank up to 100% as the car will have only 37% fuel in it. If you forget to re-fuel, the car will stop mid-way, and you won’t be able to complete the challenge. Remember, you cannot get out of the vehicle. A plus point is that the game will notify you when you have started the challenge, and an in-built timer will also be visible.
Learning the routes – A Key Trick
To save time, try to learn the route from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows. This method will help you reach the destination faster and maybe even save enough time for you to attend to the other challenges. Pulling up the map repeatedly to check the path might slow you down. However, it is completely okay to check it once or twice. In case you can’t memorize it, open the map on a second screen if the setup is available to you.
Completing the challenge
The best trick to complete the challenge is to stick to the main road. There will be times when you’ll be tempted to take short-cuts through the grass and the mountains, but that route will only slow you down. The vehicles have poor control over these uncivilized routes. Moreover, that path will take you through Weeping Woods, which is the hotspot for the players at the moment. Passing through that area will alert your enemies, and they will try to sabotage your mission by shooting at your car. In the shoot-out, the tires are sure to get punctured, slowing you down further.
These are the little things that you need to take care of. If you’re a newbie, having the map on a second screen will help you a lot. Veteran players mostly won’t refer to the layout as they are already well versed with the routes. Make sure to comment below the amount of time it took for you to complete the challenge!
