The End has happened, the Island has changed, and Fortnite Chapter 2 is officially over. With this host of new changes comes several brand new items, locations, and challenges. When it comes to the location known as The Launchpad, it is a place that combines these two new things. The location isn’t a named place, but it is also needed to advance in the new Season Quest that has come with Fornite Chapter 3 Season 1. Luckily, it isn’t too hard to get to once its placement on the map is known. This guide will show players where to find The Launchpad in Fortnite Chapter 3.
Where to Find The Launchpad in Fortnite
First things first, players who want to complete the challenge related to getting to The Launchpad requires them to finish the first step in the Week One Season Quest for Fortnite Chapter 3. This first challenge will task players with tracking down a Device. Doing so will see a character called The Scientist call the player and tell them that they will be called upon when they are needed. In reality, this means they will call the player once they reach the area for the next step of the Season Quest. This challenge tells you to go to The Launchpad, which is the big island off the eastern coast of the main island itself, to the southeast of The Daily Bugle, and north of the Joneses.
Now that you have reached The Launchpad, The Scientist should call in on the Device from the previous challenge in the Quest and tell the player to complete the second half of the second challenge for the Week One Quest: Destroying the three signal Jammers in a single match. Doing this will reward the player with 25,000 XP and will allow them to progress to the next challenge: Receive Your Next Objective at Might Monument.
