As the name suggests, Wings of Icarus grants you the ability to fly across the entire Fortnite map. To use it, simply equip the Wings from your inventory by pressing the respective number and the Left click on your mouse to activate them. Then, you can use the following controls to perform more actions and fly further:

ActionInputDescription
BoostLeft-Click/Left-Shift/L3/R2Significantly increases your flying speed
Dive BombSpace/X/ADeals massive damage to the target by performing a dive attack.
Dodge LeftQ/L1Block incoming attacks with a quick spin to the left
Dodge RightR/R1Block incoming attacks with a quick spin to the right

A fresh Wings of Icarus has a charge of 300 seconds and doesn't recharge over time. Once you travel with these wings, the challenge will be marked as completed and you'll get 10,000 XP for your efforts.

In the meantime, if an opponent player manages to shoot you, your character will tumble to the ground and you'll need to activate your wings again.

Wings of Icarus is an Epic Rarity item that can easily be found inside Underworld/ Olympus Chests, as a part of the floor loot and can be purchased from certain NPCs (Skye and Marigold). Although it's a purple rarity item, I never faced any extraordinary challenges while finding these wings in Fortnite. However, I strongly recommend dropping at new POIs like The Underworld and Mount Olympus where you'll find a ton of special chests.

You have a higher chance of finding Wings of Icarus in these chests than in the normal ones that pop up all over the Fortnite island. But beware: these POIs are very popular this season and you’ll run into many opponents who want to eliminate you, so make sure you have enough gear before you hunt for the Wings of Icarus.
