Fortnite The Lowdown Challenges – Cheat Sheet, Loading Screen

It's the fifth week in Chapter 2: Season 1 of Fortnite, so we've got a The Lowdown Challenges Guide that walks you through completing all of these challenges! This mission looks to have you heading to E.G.O. Outposts, dealing damage while riding in a Motorboat, and helping out your teammates by healing and rebooting them.

Here's a look at the The Lowdown Challenges List:

  • Search Chests at E.G.O. outposts (7)
  • Deal damage to opponents while riding in a Motorboat (500)
  • Visit different E.G.O. outposts (5)
  • Assault Rifle Eliminations (3)
  • Revive a teammate in different matches (3)
  • Search Ammo Boxes in different Named Locations (7)
  • Heal teammates with a Bandage Bazooka (200)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs or Salty Springs (3)
  • Reboot a teammate (1)
  • Assist teammates with Eliminations (7)

Completing each challenge will get you 54,000 XP points towards your battle pass. You start off with the first three of these challenges unlocked, and you will unlock more challenges by completing each of those. If you complete 8 of these challenges you will unlock the Loading Screen for the Mission! There's a hidden location listed on the loading screen you earn, so check out this guide for more information!

The Lowdown Cheat Sheet

Here's a full cheat sheet with all of the challenges. More detailed explanations can be found below, credit to SquatingDog.

The Lowdown Mission Guide

The challenges are fairly easily to complete, and you can always do them in Team Rumble if you feel like they might be difficult. You can also use Party Assist with any of these challenges which should help you complete the difficult ones.

Search Chests at E.G.O. outposts (7)

Here's a map with all of the E.G.O. outposts, there's five in total.

Deal damage to opponents while riding in a Motorboat (500)

You'll want to grab a boat and try to go towards a location that is really close to water. Misty Meadows, Sweaty Sands, Slurpy Swamp or Craggy Cliffs would probably work the best. That way you can hopefully fire the boat rockets at people who are preoccupied.

Visit different E.G.O. outposts (5)

Use the map above to find all five E.G.O. outpost locations. They are pretty spread out, so it' be best to do this one in multiple matches.

Assault Rifle Eliminations (3)

This is a real easy one to complete, but if you struggle with the rifles then head into Team Rumble to complete it.

Revive a teammate in different matches (3)

You could do this by playing normally in duos or squads. Your other option is to find a friend that will fly off to a secluded area and knock themselves. You can then revive them, and then you can do the same for them! Repeat this a few times to complete the challenge.

Search Ammo Boxes in different Named Locations (7)

Just head to seven different named locations and search an ammo box. There's no great trick to this one, all of the locations are pretty far apart.

Heal teammates with a Bandage Bazooka (200)

You could do this in Team Rumble, but it might be hard to find teammates who are low health. If you are struggling to find a Bandage Bazooka, look in Supply Drops that drop periodically. If you want to cheese this one, find a Bandage Bazooka and have your friend take some fall damage and heal them up!

Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs or Salty Springs (3)

Simple one, just go wherever you like more to get the eliminations. Salty Springs is probably the more popular landing spot.

Reboot a teammate (1)

You can do this in a duo or squad just like the revive teammate challenge, or you can have a friend go to a safe area and allow you to reboot them that way.

Assist teammates with Eliminations (7)

This one is super easy if you do it in Team Rumble, you'll get a bunch of assists just playing normally.

The Lowdown Mission Loading Screen

Once you've completed eight of these challenges, you will receive The Lowdown loading screen! This looks to kind of being exploring the lore of the season where each of the cosmetics have an alter ego. The hidden N can be seen on the left side of the image at the back of the hangar.

Hidden N Location

The N is at a location you've probably already visited, because it's at the E.G.O. Hangar. Inside of here you'll want to go to the back of the hangar and up the stairs. The hidden N will be on top of a couple of yellow barrels.

  1. Evident, I found it much easier to do the motorboat challenge if I was a passenger, even when I’m alone in the boat. Just change seats. You can do a lot more and quicker damage with you guns than the rockets from the boat.

    1. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Awesome! It’s great to read up on it before starting them even though its about 48hrs to go to unlock these challenges.
