Fortnite Quinjets Guide: How To Search SHIELD Chests (Week 2)

Don't worry, Tony Stark can afford to replace them.


Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 4's map is constantly changing, and the Nexus War shake-up has introduced many new elements from the Marvel universe. One of Week 2's challenges will need you to track down Tony Stark's constantly moving Quinjets in order to steal some loot from the Avengers.

This challenge tasks you with searching SHIELD chests inside Quinjets, and GameSpot's guide below will help you locate them, deal with the bots that guard them, and complete the challenge. This is probably the most difficult Week 2 challenge, but as long as you go in prepared you shouldn't have too much trouble with it.

Make sure you stay on track in order to get all the Marvel rewards available during the season. The whole world could depend on it! Or, at least, your costume collection. Keep on reading to find out how to complete it quickly.

Where Are the Quinjets?

Fortnite's Season 4 Quinjets change location with every match. You see them fly by when the battle bus starts crossing the map. Plane-shaped icons will pop up on the map once you land. Those are the locations of the Quinjets, sso keep an eye out for their locations. Here's an example:

Quinjet locations have multiple bots built by Tony Stark, drones carrying chests, and rarer chest spawns inside the plane itself. Land nearby a named location, get an assault rifle or sniper rifle, and make your way to one of the plane icons. Take out the bots from a distance--they should be easier to eliminate that way. You might get overwhelmed if you rush to fight the five bots up close.

Once you've dealt with the bots, which should net you experience for a Week 1 challenge, collect the chest inside the ship and shoot the drones hovering nearby. Be sure to head to a Quinjet location early as there is only so much loot. Other players could get there first. You'll need to open seven chests overall but they don't need to be in the same match.

If you haven't dealt damage with the Tony Stark bot weapons, the Stark Industries energy rifle, be sure to pick one up and use that to complete a different weekly challenge.

Of course, during all of this, you need to look out for other players--just because you're completing a challenge doesn't mean that the armed players running around are going to leave you alone.

What Do I Get For Opening Quinjet Chests?

You'll get a hefty chunk of experience once you open seven chests. This will help you level up and unlock different style costumes for all the Marvel superheroes featured in the battle pass. You won't want to miss any of them.
