You’ll be hiding in hay bales and dumpster diving for this week’s Fortnite challenge as you try and avoid an early elimination.

As part of the Open Water challenges, you’ll need to hide in Hideouts in three different matches. There’s also a more difficult version of this challenge, where you’ll need to deal 150 damage within 10 seconds of leaving a Hideout, which can get a little tricky in the later stages of a match.

When you approach a Hideout, you’ll see the Hide prompt, so interact with it to climb in. You can stop hiding at any time by pressing the appropriate key for your platform.

Hide inside Hideouts in different matches

There are two types of Hideout available so far:

  • The hay bales, which you can find near Frenzy Farm,

  • And dumpsters, which you can find in the likes of Retail Row, Dirty Docks, Sweaty Sands and Craggy Cliffs.

Once inside, you can remain there as long as the Hideout stays intact. Other players can destroy them and eliminate you in the process, so make sure to have a few close-quarters weapons to hand if possible.

For the next Hideout challenge, watch out for unsuspecting opponents and time your reveal carefully to catch them off-guard. A weapon like the Pump Shotgun or Assault Rifle will deal 150 damage in no time at all.

And that’s it! If you’re still looking for the letter F and the letter O, you can find them here. You can also check out our guides on where to find a fishing rod and catch Floppers and Slurpfish, where to find Upgrade Bench locations and how the new Battle Pass Medal system works.
