Fortnite: Defuse Joker gas canisters found in different named locations

The Welcome to Gotham challenges are now live as part of the Fortnite x Batman cross-over, and it looks like the Joker is up to his old tricks again.

The Joker has stashed away purple gas canisters in named locations all around the Fortnite map and it's up to you to disarm them.

You'll usually find the canisters near cars and buildings, though some are hidden away underground or in caves.

The Fortnite x Batman LTM runs until October 6, so you've got plenty of time to find them.

Defuse Joker gas canisters found in different named locations

To make things a little more difficult, the location of the gas canisters changes with every match, so there's no guarantee you'd find one in the same place twice.

Fortunately, the gas canisters seem to act similar to vending machines and chests, where they are more prevalent in certain named locations.

Once you've found a canister, walk up to it and interact with it for a few seconds to diffuse it.

You'll need to find three of them in order to complete the challenge and earn your Battle Stars. It would be a good idea to try this challenge as part of a squad, using the new Party Hub app to stay in touch as you search different named locations.

While there's a chance you'll be able to find the Joker's gas canisters in the Gotham City Rift Zone, players have reported finding them in:

  • Retail Row
  • Lucky Landing
  • Salty Springs
  • Shifty Shaft
  • Fatal Fields
  • Moisty Palms
  • Pleasant Park
  • Loot Lake
