Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer continues, and it seems like Epic are feeling rather patriotic. Alongside the (not great), July 4th skins returning to the game for the special day, the newest 14 Days of Summer challenge asks you to launch fireworks found along the river bank.
If you’ve been out of the loop with Fortnite (and who can blame you, so much happens all the time), 14 Days of Summer is Epic’s seasonal event that is the equivalent to the Christmas-themed one they held during Season 7. Each day, you get a new challenge with a cosmetic reward at the end of it, the overall prized being a lovely little Peely back bling. Though the name suggests it goes on for 14 days, you have a total of roughly 20 to get them all done.
Here’s everything you need to know for Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer event.
As you can see, the river bank in question refers to the river that goes all the way from the north to the south of the Fortnite island. The fireworks are spread out, but are mostly in the more northern areas — there’s just the one near Lucky Landing.
To make your life easier, we’re paying attention to the route (the locations highlighted in yellow) that will help you get this done as quickly as possible as you only need three fireworks in total. Thanks to the slipstreams added at the start of Fortnite Season 9, getting to and then launching these fireworks should be a piece of cake.
NOTE: only one of these exists per match. This means that if another player launches one, you may have to find another.
Fortnite Fireworks #1: South of Tilted
This firework can be a little hard to see as it may be shaded by a tree depending on what time of day it is. Just before you enter the snowy biome, you should be able to find this firework by a tree. Head on over to E6 for this one.
Fortnite Fireworks #2: South of Tilted
If you’ve completed the previous 14 Days of Summer challenge that asks you to dance at different beach parties, this shouldn’t be too big of an ask to find. Just follow the river bank slightly north along from it and you should find the firework just before the waterfall. Found in E5.
Fortnite Fireworks #3: East of Loot Lake
By utilising the slipstream, you should be able to get some altitude and then easily glide on over to this firework which is located next to a camper van slightly east of Loot Lake. Found at E4 on the Fortnite map, and once you’re done with this one, your challenge is completed.

This is not the hardest 14 Days of Summer challenge to complete, so that should be another easy (and free) cosmetic for you to tick off your list. You will get the Low n’ Slow Harvesting tool for your troubles here, which looks like it might come in handy for another challenge down the line.
