Fortnite Guide: How To Bathe In The Purple Pool

The purple pool isn't where you'd expect. Here's how to locate it and complete this challenge.


One of Fortnite's Season 5, Week 13 challenges will task you with one simple thing: Bathe in the purple pool at Steamy Stacks. This sounds straightforward, but you might end up confused if you try to go the first place you assumed the pool was located.

Where to find the Purple Pool in Fortnite

Of course, start your Fortnite battle royale match by gliding toward Steamy Stacks itself, which is located in the northeastern corner of the map, but don't go to the titular stacks. They do have purple liquid underneath them, but you'll get shot up into the air before you can take a dip.

Jump in. The water's probably fine.

Instead, head to the western part of the area and look for a big building with industrial-grade doors inside. Go through a few of these and you'll end up in a room with a purple pool. Jump in and you'll complete the challenge. For us, it took a few seconds to pop up, but it did register after we swam around a bit.

And that's all there is to it! It's just one of several challenges available for Season 5, Week 13, and you'll get an easy 20,000 XP for completing it. You can also check out some other guides for help on scanning a server at a Surface Hub or throwing fruit at Hunter's Haven.
