Fortnite Firefly Jar Or Flair Gun Challenge Guide: How To Find And Use Them At Misty Meadows

This guide will help you find a firefly jar and complete the challenge quickly.


Fortnite: Chapter 2 Season 3's new Week 5 challenges are now live, presenting players with some new objectives to complete when they're not working toward a Victory Royale. One challenge this week tasks you to use a Firefly Jar or Flare Gun at Misty Meadows. While it's not difficult to find the general Misty Meadows area on the map, the fact that you also need to track down either a Firefly Jar or Flare Gun complicates things a bit, and might be a sticking point for some players. Looking for a specific item isn't easy when you're dodging enemy fire. In the guide below, we'll explain where and how to do that so you can complete the challenge quickly.

What Are Firefly Jars And Flare Guns?

Firefly Jars and Flare Guns are both incendiary weapons that light the environment on fire, destroying buildings and hurting anyone standing on the burning areas. Flare Guns can be found with normal loot, through searching chests, the ground, loot llamas, and supply drops. It's an easier option if you can find one.

Where Can I Find A Firefly Jar?

Firefly Jars need to be created by the player by collecting fireflies around different areas of the map. Fireflies spawn at night, when the map is dark, mostly around wooded areas. You'll need to collect one to create a Firefly Jar, but once you do it'll spawn in your inventory automatically. Each batch of fireflies will give you three jars.

Good locations to find fireflies include areas around Frenzy Farm, Misty Meadows, The Authority, and Lazy Lake. A smart strategy would be to land at Lazy Lake, collect fireflies, and then move to Misty Meadows to use them and complete the challenge.
