Fortnite Jack O’Lantern Locations
Jack O’Lanterns are found practically everywhere on the Fortnite map, but there are some places where they can be found in greater numbers. Generally, Tilted Towers, Fort Jonesy, Greasy Grove, and Shiny Sound are great places to find them. These locations have been marked on the map below:
Jack O’Lanterns can be found high up or on the ground. They also appear in front of houses fairly regularly, so anything with an old door and porch is worth checking. In Tilted, the streets are the best place to find Jack O’ Lanterns scattered everywhere. Fort Jonesy is a particularly good place to find them, especially in the northwest corner of the main area.
Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is here! To help you get started with this heist-themed season, we have guides on how to alert a security camera, protect data from Forecast Towers, and destroy weakened security walls or doors. There’s also a new Victory Umbrella! In the meantime, learn what the best weapons are, the current boosts, how to get XP quickly, how to use the best PC builds, and earn a crown of victory.
How to destroy Jack O’Lanterns with ranged weapons
Once you’ve found some Jack O’ Lanterns, you’ll just have to destroy them with a ranged weapon. Basically, this means any weapon, not your gathering tool. Simply grab a pistol, assault rifle, submachine gun or other weapon and shoot until the Jack O’ Lantern is destroyed.
For destroying five of them, you will earn 15k XP and also some progress towards the general Fortnitemares missions. Completing several of these will earn you exclusive Halloween-themed rewards.
While you’re here, there are several other Fortnitemare challenges you can complete, including Terrifying Tablatures and defeating the Inkquisitor.
