Fortnite Season 9, Week 2 has been released, but the spread of challenges for this week is is rather bland and uninvolved. This isn’t entirely unexpected as Epic has moved the more interesting ‘exploration’ and ‘treasure hunt’ challenges to the Fortbyte system. This means the only real challenges worth a guide is the Oversized Phone, Giant Piano and Dancing Fish challenge.
This challenge is fairly straightforward, you just need to visit three specific landmarks over as many games as it takes. It isn’t multi-stage and it doesn’t need to be done in a single game, meaning you can just visit them as is convenient. This challenge relies almost exclusively on map knowledge, but the catch is the map just changed for Season 9. Luckily, only one of the landmarks is new to Season 9.
Below is a map with the Oversized Phone circled in red, the Giant Piano circled in yellow and the Dancing Fish circled in blue.
As you can see, most of the landmarks are situated around the the Season 8 jungle biome, in the northeast corner of the map.
The Dancing Fish is the only landmark that is new to Season 9. This was the giant sign out the front of one of the Retail Row stores, slammed into the roof of a freshly built house in the area. You’ll find it at G6 on the main map’s grid.
The Giant Piano has persisted for a while now and can be found just north of the old Season 4 ‘superhero’ mansion. Alternatively if you head to the Lonely Lodge watchtower, then head southeast, you’ll find it at a cliff overlooking the ocean. J5 on the main map’s grid.
The Oversized Phone was a landmark from a Season 8 challenge that asked you to ring the Pizza Pit phone number. Directly east of the block at the edge where the grasslands and jungle meet is a cliff that drops down. Fall down this cliff and you’ll see the phone nestled near the foot of the cliff and a tree. You’ll find it at E2 on the main map’s grid.
Once you’ve visited all three locations, that’s all there is to it for this week. The rest of the challenges are fairly basic in nature, with no really interesting twists and turns. As mentioned at the beginning of the article, it seems Epic has moved all the interesting and unique challenges to the Fortbyte system, which are a little less ‘lucrative’ in nature in terms of rewards.
