How to ignite structures in Fortnite

Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 1 has entered its ninth week, bringing in new challenges for players to complete, new secrets to unlock in the map, and new cosmetics to purchase from the item shop. It's been a busy season for Fortnite fans, with a lot of collaborations with the fan-favourite universe like League of Legends universe, Spider-Man, etc. Furthermore, a new leak suggests that Uncharted content is coming to Fortnite.

With so much new stuff coming to Fortnite, it's easy to get overwhelmed. However, until the next big things pop up on the map, fans may want to take the downtime to complete the remaining seasonal challenge. One week nine challenge requires you to ignite structures. Here's our guide on how to do it.

Igniting Structures in Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 1

To begin, you have to find the appropriate flammable items that can set any structure on fire. In Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 1, these items are:

  • Cars, Trucks, Boats
  • Firefly Jars
  • Flare Guns
  • Gas Cans

Gas cans are the easiest to find. Just look for one outside any of the bus stops or bus stops. Cars and trucks are found almost anywhere in the  Fortnite Season 3 map, but you'll definitely find one in Chonker's speedway. You can find boats near lakes.  Damaging them will set them on fire, leading to an explosion which will set the nearby area or structure on fire as well.

The firefly jar is a forgeable item, meaning you have to find fireflies first. Fireflies spawn near forests, and you're guaranteed to find some in the Sanctuary. Flare guns are common items that spawn randomly in any of the chests or supply drops in the game.

After you have found the required item, igniting a structure is a simple task. Wooden structures (even trees) are your best shot at completing this challenge as it burns almost immediately. Metal and stone structures do not count as they are not sensitive to fire damage.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 25,000 XP.
