Chapter 2 Season 1 Open Water Challenges (Fortnite Battle Pass Guide)

Mission Objectives

Land at Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs, and Dirty Docks

Starting things off is a straightforward Challenge which requires no direction or tips. Simply jump from the Battle Bus at the beginning of the match and land at each of these locations.

Hide inside Hideouts in (3) different matches

Hideouts can be found quite literally all over the map; Simply find yourself a Dumpster or Hay Bale and hop in to hide from enemies. The best use of this mechanic is the Hay Bales located in Frenzy Farm due to the various styles of Hay Bales, making them less obvious hiding spots.

Search (7) Chests at Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows

Maps of Chest spawn locations can be found below for each of these points of interest. Overall, Misty Meadows is the superior choice for this Challenge not only due to the higher amount of Chests, but it also has nearby water allow for a quick escape if needed.

Craggy Cliffs

There are a total of 20 potential Chest spawns in Craggy Cliffs.

Misty Meadows

There are a total of 27 potential Chest spawns in Misty Meadows.

Eliminate (2) opponents with a Sniper Rifle

As of the v11.0 patch, the only Sniper Rifle available in Battle Royale is the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle which comes in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities. The important statistics for these variants are as follows.


  • Damage: 95
  • Reload: 3.40s


  • Damage: 100
  • Reload: 3.20s


  • Damage: 105
  • Reload: 3.00s


  • Damage: 110
  • Reload: 2.80s


  • Damage: 116
  • Reload: 2.60s

Be crouched within 20m of an opponent for a total of 10 seconds

This is a pretty interesting Challenge that sounds a lot harder than it actually is. For an easy completion, simply land at a densely populated location at the beginning of a match, ideally in or on a building. Once you’ve landed, listen for an enemy, then sit outside of the room they are in.

Remember that you do not need a direct line of sight to the player to complete this Challenge, simply crouch and stay within a sizable distance.

Deal (500) damage with Pistols to opponents

As of the v11.0 patch, the only Pistol available in Battle Royale is the standard Pistol which comes in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities. The important statistics for these variants are as follows…


  • Damage: 24
  • Reload: 1.50s


  • Damage: 25
  • Reload: 1.50s


  • Damage: 26
  • Reload: 1.40s


  • Damage: 28
  • Reload: 1.30s


  • Damage: 29
  • Reload: 1.30s

Search (7) Ammo Boxes in a single match

Ammo Boxes can be found quite literally all over the map. Because of this, a map of spawn locations is not necessarily. Simply keep an eye out for them throughout your matches, typically found within buildings, and you’ll have completed this Challenge before you know it.

Get an elimination from 50m or further

Depending on your abilities and confidence in long-range engagements, the best choices for this Challenge would be the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle or Assault Rifle. The best way to go about this is to third-party an ongoing fight, this allows you to snag easy eliminations without much consequences.

If you find yourself struggling with this Challenge, you can also hop into the Team Rumble mode where respawn and loot persistence is enabled. Here you fight an enemy to lower their health, then land on a nearby building upon respawn and secure the elimination.

Survive (10) Storm phases

Yet again, this is a passive Challenge which doesn’t really require much effort from the player. Simplifying playing through matches as you typically would, whether you’re going for Challenges or not, will allow you to complete this with ease.

If you’re a player who struggles to survive, or would just like to complete it as soon as possible, you can use the Hideouts to your advantage by hiding in them for as long as possible.

Deal (150) damage within 10 seconds of leaving a Hideout

As previously described, Hideouts are found all over the map in the form of Dumpsters and Hay Bales. Ideally you’ll want to find a Shotgun and hide within a Hay Bale in Frenzy Farm for maximum stealth, then pop out and blast any enemies who happen to pass by.

Search hidden “O” found in the Open Water Loading Screen

Once you have completed 8 of the 11 Open Water Challenges, you will unlock the Open Water Loading Screen. Here you can find a holographic letter O in the center of the image, beneath the porch of the building.

This location can be found in-game in Craggy Cliffs, as indicated by the map above.
