The excitement of the Fortnite weekly challenges is only ramping up for Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 and the addition of aliens into the games is giving us a great variety of things to do - including flying UFOs, which is every bit as awesome as it sounds!


There are many challenges this week, and the one we are looking at here requires you to find and interact with a dead drop that you will find in the Weeping Woods.

You should not have too much trouble tracking it down, there are a few of them, but if you need a guide for where to go then we've got you covered!

Where is the Weeping Woods Dead Drop in Fortnite?

Well, we probably don't need to tell you to head to the Weeping Woods but, just in case, head to the Weeping Woods!

There are six of them dotted about, so you should not have too much of a problem finding one - and the above picture shows you what they look like. As for whereabouts the six are, here are the details!

  • Just to the north across the river you will find the first one.
  • For the second, head to the northeast of the bridge across the river.
  • Head southwest of that bridge for the third.
  • The north bend of the river will see you come across another.
  • Head south to another bend of the river for the fifth one.
  • For the last, head southeast until you spot a clearing by the buildings.

When you find one, all you need to do is interact with it to complete the challenge and bask in the glory of all that XP.
