Defeat Riot (1) – 30 000 XP
As part of the week 7 quests, players will need to defeat Riot in Fortnite. The main problem with completing this challenge comes in actually tracking down the mohawk-donning NPC. Riot can be found on the yellow steel bridge to the east of Misty Meadows. It is marked on the map below:
Once you arrive here, you’re looking out for the character with a mohawk. Make sure you’ve already used any shield potions you’ve picked up and have a fairly powerful weapon equipped. After a few headshots, you should defeat Riot and be able to pick up his Epic Heavy Assault Rifle.
Complete Whiplash Time Trials (1) – 30 000 XP
On the east side of Lazy Lake, right outside the A Lot O’ Auto building, you’ll find the Whiplash Time Trial. Once you get here, you should see the blue arrow with a stopwatch and a tire beneath it. This indicates the start of the time trial. Simply get in Whiplash and head over to the arrow and you’ll be able to begin the time trial itself. Complete the route before the time runs out.

Construct a wooden hatchery (1) – 45 000 XP

When you see one of the alien eggs marked on the map below, be it at the Durr Burger restaurant or anywhere else, to mark it you simply need to place a ping directly on it. You’ll know you’ve done this right if the ping specifically resembles a small egg icon.
