After Operation Sky Fire and the destruction of the Alien Mothership, the island of Fortnite has been changed. Just as the island has changed, so has the way that players take on challenges. Weekly challenges now take the form of Punchcard challenges around the island that can give you a series of challenges and reward you with some XP for your Battle Pass. One NPC that you can talk to is Madcap, who will have several quests for you to complete. The second challenge tasks you will collecting mushrooms for Madcap. This guide will show you how to forage mushrooms in Fortnite.
How to Forage Mushrooms in Fortnite
You will need to head over to Corny Crops to find Madcap. He will be shown on your mini-map as a white speech bubble. Talking to him will begin his series of side quests, the first of which is to destroy a tractor. Once you do that, he will task you with collecting two mushrooms. These mushrooms can be found in large quantities in Sludgy Swamp. Once you arrive at the location, you can either pick up or consume the mushroom, both count as foraging them. Once you do this with two of them, you will complete the challenge for Madcap.
Once you collect two mushrooms, the challenge will be completed and you will be rewarded 14,000 XP for leveling up your Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass. The challenge for destroying a tractor gives you 12,000 XP, which means that the reward for each subsequent challenge in Madcap’s quest increases by 2,000 XP, capping off at 20,000 with the fifth and final challenge. Foraging these mushrooms and getting your XP also means you can move on to Madcap’s next challenge: Craft a weapon.
Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 8 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android.
