Fortnite Location Guide: How To Find Chests In Upstate New York (Week 10)

Yes, New York is in Fortnite. It's canon.


Fortnite's Week 10 challenges are available now. One challenge will send you to an unusual location: Upstate New York. It was added with one of the big Marvel updates midway through Season 4. The challenge is to open chests in Upstate New York. This guide will help you find the location of Upstate New York on the map, find chests, and complete the challenge quickly.

This challenge leaked early. With Thursday having passed, the challenges are available now. Read on below and look at the map to learn exactly how you can complete it and reap the rewards.

Where Is Upstate New York?

Upstate New York is the entire area around Stark Industries in the F3 tile (and surrounding tiles) on the map. It includes the building where Iron Man can be found, Tony Stark's lake house, Heart Lake, and the surrounding wilderness. It shouldn't be difficult to find chests in such a big space. If you have to complete the fishing at Heart Lake challenge, you could also kill two birds with one stone. Here's a map with the specific location marked:

Stark Industries is a much calmer landing spot with the changes that Fortnitemares brought to the battle royale. It's still dangerous with Iron Man, Stark Robots, and other players roaming around, but it's not the bloodbath it used to be. Land at the lab in the upper-right corner of the named location to find seven chests like the one below. They're fairly large, so you are unlikely to miss them.

What Do I Get For Opening Chests In Upstate New York?

You'll get 25,000 experience points once you open seven chests in Upstate New York. Be sure to catch fish at Heart Lake and complete all the Fortnitemares challenges, like finding three witch shacks, before that event ends. Once you're done with that be sure to try trick-or-treating for a break from all the fighting.
