Many campfires are available around the map, and any of them will do for the challenge. However, this challenge requires patience while you wait for nightfall, which can sometimes take a little while. To make it easier, you will want to find a more secluded campfire spot away from enemies to wait and light your fire. We recommend some of these more private spots toward the edges of the Island:

  • Scratch Pad - west of Reality Tree
  • Beach Bash - southwest of Reality Tree
  • Lil' Shaftie - southwest of Flutter Barn
  • Sandblast Estate - south of Chonker's Speedway
  • Unnamed Island - southeast of Cloudy Condos
  • Tow-Away Beach - southeast of Fort Jonesy
  • Sunburned Shacks - east of Herald's Sanctum
  • Looper Landing - northeast of Herald's Sanctum
  • Unnamed Beach - northeast of Lustrous Lagoon
  • Lonesome Watchpost - northwest of Shiny Sound
  • Shell or High Water - northeast of Chromejam Junction

How to dance next to a campfire at night in Fortnite

Once you locate a campfire to use, you will have to wait for it to turn night. The time automatically passes in Fortnite as you play your match. This means you will have to wait as the sky turns dark. Having a secure location makes this waiting part much more manageable, or you can stay in cover by hiding in a bush until the right time.

When it turns nighttime, you can now light your campfire by holding the following:

  • Square on PlayStation
  • X on Xbox
  • E on PC

Before going out, the campfire lasts only a short time, so now is your time to dance beside your campfire. Any emote will work for the challenge, and the ones in your quick slot will be the easiest to get the challenge done as efficiently as possible. To start dancing, press:

  • Down on the D-pad on Console
  • B on PC

Completing this challenge will bring you closer to redeeming the unique Fortnitemares rewards. There are plenty more challenges to complete, so look for more of our guides for help completing them quickly and easily.
