With the arrival of Chapter 5 Season 1 in Fortnite, there have been many changes in the game. Among these is a Train that circles the map and you can heist this Train to get valuable rare loot. This can yield extremely valuable loot and can also provide transportation. Since the new map is quite large, we can say that it is quite nice to have a Train that you can board and travel around the map all the time. Not to mention, it’s a vital part of how to complete Train Heist to finish many of your quests in Fortnite.
How To Complete a Train Heist in Fortnite
In Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1, when you enter the game and open the map, you will see a moving Train icon. To Heist the Train, you must go to this icon and land on it in Fortnite. This Train, which was added to Fortnite in Chapter 5 Season 1, moves around the map without stopping, and you can board it whenever you want. So even if you wait on the tracks and try to get on from the front or the sides of the Train, it will be fine, it won’t damage you when it bumps into you.
The Train is a new addition to Fortnite, and with both Kickstart and Weekly Fortnite Quests featuring Train boarding or Train Heist quests, there are a lot of players landing on the Train. For these reasons, you have to be extra careful when boarding the Train because at least 1 player lands here every game. In my experience so far, I like the Train as a landing spot so much that I came up with a technique to heist it.
If you want to do a complete Train Heist in Fortnite without any problems, you can use my method. In this method, you should not land directly on the Train, you should land on a POI in the direction it is traveling. However, it shouldn’t be too far away, for example, after jumping into a building and obtaining only one weapon from there, you will immediately run to the tracks to get on the Train. Even if someone captures the Train while you are on board, they will be extremely surprised and you will have the opportunity to catch them by surprise.
To complete the Train Heist in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1, you should hack the Large Black Chest at the front of the Train. Once this is done, you will complete the Train Heist. At the same time, don’t forget to open the 4 Chests located at the doors of the Train.
To summarize the method:
- Jump to a location where you can find loot in the direction of the Train.
- Find a weapon in no more than 30 seconds and run to the tracks to board the Train.
- If there’s someone on the Train, they won’t be waiting for you or they’ll be fighting someone else, so you can take control by getting on the Train during this time.
- Finally, hack the Large Black Chest at the front and you’ve completed Heist the Train.
