Week 10 of Fortnite s the third season is among us and of course there will be a new wave of challenges to complete. In total, there are eight to finish – everything from taking out enemies in specific places, dealing with a certain damage with SMG or shotguns and even one for dancing on a mountain. There is also a challenge to collect fireflies at the site of Weeping Woods, which is what we will help you with in this guide.
Whether you’re having trouble finding this area, finding fireflies, or staying alive long enough to collect them – this guide will give you all the tips and tricks you need to get through it. How to collect fireflies from Weeping Woods in Fortnite.
Where to find Weeping Woods
Weeping Woods is something of a less populated area, as it is not so jam-packed with buildings to explore for goodies. You will find it southwest of The Authority (the island in the middle of the map) and north of Slurpy Swamp. Thankfully, this area is marked on the map. As the name suggests, Weeping Woods is full of trees and has much more of a natural vibe than many of the other areas. Here you will find a couple of log cabins, a playground for the children and some fireflies that you can collect.
It is recommended to land on this spot immediately, but be careful with other players trying to do the same. If you see them, try to land out of their line of sight and quickly grab a weapon nearby to defend yourself. We chose to land at the cabins in the middle of this area, near the playground so we could go in to find German.
How to find fireflies
Assuming no one is around, go ahead and drive over to the water in front of the cottages. This is a great place to look for fireflies. You can see them flicker, and they usually come in packages. If one is near you, the game will prompt you to collect it. We were lucky to find fireflies with water, but if you do not seem to get them to play, run around the area while looking for the flicker and you should see some in no time.
The second thing to mention is that fireflies are easier to see at night, so if you can’t find them right away, give it some time and wait for it to get dark outside. We also noticed that more people seemed to play even when it was dark.
Since this challenge only went live, you will probably meet more players in this area than usual, so it is always best to take a friend with you while looking for fireflies. You do not have to find them all in one match, so even if you only take one, your progress will be saved and you may come next time to finish it. But from our experience, we were able to complete this challenge in one game – in a few minutes thanks to the firefly’s frequent spawn frequency.
