The latest Fortnite update brought a lot of new content. While the Metallica collaboration is the biggest part of it, Epic Games added some other stuff as well. This includes a couple of secret quests that you can complete to gain quick and easy XP in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3.

These secret quests will be available for a limited time, so make sure to complete them as soon as possible. Considering how easy the quests are, you can complete both of them in a single match and earn bonus Fortnite XP. If you’re interested, keep reading the article, as it explains how you can find and complete new quests.

Where to find secret quests in Fortnite

With the release of the v30.10 update, Fortnite added Metallica, a legendary heavy metal band. Members of the band were added to a new Fortnite Festival Pass, as well as the Item Shop, while the collaboration also affects other aspects of the game. Thanks to it, we can now visit a new Loot Island, which has a Metallica theme.

Interestingly, Epic added one of the new secret quests to this part of the Fortnite map. Once the Loot Island spawns, all you need to do is visit its lower part to complete a secret quest. As soon as you do this, you will see a popup that shows you visited the memorial, which will reward you with 10,000 XP.

For the second secret quest, you will have to listen to coastal rumors. In other words, you simply need to talk to three different NPCs and choose the “Coastal Rumors” dialog option. These are the characters you need to talk to and their locations:

  • Riot at Slumberyard
  • Chiara at Grand Glacier
  • Brite Raider at a small outpost southeast of Brutal Beachhead

Once you talk to all of these Fortnite characters, you will receive 5,000 XP, for a total of 15,000 XP for both secret quests. If you need more XP, check out our list of the best XP maps in Fortnite. You can also unlock a couple of free Fortnite skins while they last, as well as a free car.
