Destroy haunted household furniture (5)

I'm still researching this, but it looks like you should be able to go to any area that has houses in it. You can then look around each house for a floating piece of furniture. You will see a bit of a wispy glow around it. Once you find one of these, destroy it with your pickaxe!

I know for sure that these spawn in Salty Springs in the Storm King LTM.

Leap from a Hideout while an opposing player is within 20m (1)

This one isn't too bad, you can find hideouts all over the map. They are the placed areas that you can jump into and take the shape of a big pile of hay or a dumpster. I'd head to Team Rumble to get this one done pretty easily.

Search a chest in a haunted forest, a ghost town, and a spooky farm (1)

We know for sure that the haunted forest is Weeping Woods, and the spooky farm is Frenzy Farms. The ghost town was a bit harder to find, but it looks like it's at a landmark location that's northeast of Steamy Stacks called Pristine Point!

Deal Damage to Storm King weak points (10,000)

Storm King has glowing yellow crystals that appear on his body throughout the match. You will want to fire into those to deal damage to him and complete this challenge.

Revive teammates while battling the Storm King (3)

This is an easy one because so many teammates will be dying to the Storm King. You'll need to jump into the LTM to complete it. The people you revive do not have to be in your squad, so anyone within the event will count towards the challenge.

Defeat the Storm King (1)

You'll need to find a team that can stand up against the Storm King in the LTM! He can be a bit difficult, but I'm sure people will get better at taking him down as time goes on.

  1. At last! Yesterday i won the fortinightmares umbrella with a bunch of cool randoms in only 12:35 minutes after 4 tries BUT… the 3rd try i was bummed that a loser in a scarecrow skin was purposely picking up fell down players and throwing them into the storm, myself included. What a moron!

  2. Thank you again Evident for the amazing and informative guidelines to complete the challenges and what the rewards will be.

    I recently read the Storm King LTM is currently disabled because Epic is addressing a technical issue BUT, when it is up and running, any thoughts on how to defeat the storm king?

    The victory umbrella that comes with defeating the storm king is by far, the most lit umbrella I’ve seen so far, and if I could only have one victory umbrella from when Fortnite started, since season one, it would be this one!

    Aloha from Hawaii!

    1. Glad you find these helpful!

      I think the best way to down the Storm King is to make sure to focus on hitting his weak spots, destroying the monster spawners that pop up, and making sure to pick up downed teammates. The first time I tried it, we were constantly being overrun by fiends, so making sure to take out the spawners is probably the highest priority.

      1. Just played a few games, won the very first one, but on my sons account, figures, now I’m hours in on my account, loss after loss after loss..

        Im also not sure if anyone was aware of this, but seems you don’t have to land on the center island, you can land anywhere in the circle. I’ve spotted numerous lamas around the edge of the water at the start of each match, possibly as part of the LTM, maybe, but you take no damage being there until well after the zombies start spawning, so crack open a lama, the loot, then swim to the center island, hope this helps.

        1. It’s tough because you rely on a bunch of random players. Hopefully it gets easier!

          1. No worries, anytime, nice to have a place to discuss our favorite game!

            This mode though is a lot of fun I must say, good to see the Fortnite community band together and win one together, versus trap killing, sniping, or blowing each other up with grenades in the normal BR mode day in and day out, haha.

            Good luck to all as the umbrella for this victory is SICK!

          2. Thank you!

            Exactly as you said, the other players and your squad mates play a MAJOR role whether you win, or loose, or play a match for an hour, yes, I was in a match for an hour as the storm king kept resetting as we took to long to destroy the weak points..I left, but it went on far to long with no end insight as the lobby and my teammates didn’t know what to do, and that’s okay as we were all new players at some point.

            Read where they nerfed the storm king yesterday, hence why they disable the LTM, apparently the community grumbled it was to me it was just fine.

            BUT, exactly and just like BR Squads, your teammates dictate whether you win, or whether death is upon landing or immediately around the corner. So when paying BR Squads, and after dying after numerous matches, you finally get into that one GEM of a game, with great players, and either win or be final circle, it makes all those other games worth it, to me at least.

            Same concept for this mode, just as you mentioned yesterday.

          3. It is awesome when you get that game where everyone is clicking together! Thanks for sharing your experience, I enjoyed reading it.

          4. For sure, good news is that I finally got the umbrella!

            It’s so nice to see the Fortnite community band together, and even though we’re on different squads, we all help each other out to secure a win against the storm king instead of eliminating each other out on the battle field day in and day out. And yes, to include even those pesky soccer skins, haha.

          5. Nice, congrats!

      2. Got it, clap the spawners first, will do, and thank you!

        Hopefully the LTM is back live soon so I can start the pilgrimage to this amazing umbrella, it’s even better than the raindrop umbrella for this chapter 2, I think at least.

  3. Where tf is ghost town

    1. I updated that section, there’s a map with the location!

      1. I can verify you do not need to be in the Storm King LTM to get the haunted furniture. I found mine in Salty and PP doing TR and Solos

        1. Great, thanks!

  4. do these count as wins just like the horde rush LTM did

    1. I would doubt it because if you win in Storm King LTM you get a different umbrella.

  5. Hey Evident, how do I become a writer? I’d be glad to help!

    1. You can apply here:

      I’m not really looking for Fortnite writers at the moment though.
