Wind Tunnels were introduced to the island in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1. Although these are obscure and unknown to most players, they can be used to travel considerable distances, pivot out of danger, or head straight to the safe zone. Most professional players use them to cut off opponents’ escape routes or to get ahead of the competition in one way or another.
However, as part of the “This Season” challenge, you have to complete a distance of 250 meters in wind tunnels in week nine. After completing the task, 12,000 experience points will be given as a reward.
Step-by-step guide on how to do it Travel route in wind tunnels in Fortnite
To complete this challenge, players must do three things: land at Gusty Gorge or Windrush Ravine, secure basic loot, and finally enter the wind tunnel and travel a distance of 250 meters. That being said, here’s how to approach this task.
1) Land at Gusty Gorge or Windrush Ravine
To begin this challenge, you should first land in either Gusty Gorge or Windrush Ravine. The former is a short distance south of Brutal Bastion, while the latter is a short distance east of Frenzy Fields. Because these locations are landmarks, a little manual searching is required to find them.
To make this task easier, it is recommended that you follow the Syndicate questline and complete the week seven “Syndicate” challenge entitled Pass Through Calibration Rings to Gather Data. You can complete two challenges at the same time. However, if you’re new to Fortnite and haven’t gotten that far into the storyline quests, follow this guide to complete them.
2) Secure basic loot and make sure the area is clear
Before entering the wind tunnels, it’s always a good idea to secure basic loot and make sure both hitpoints/shield points are maxed out. Nobody knows who or what is waiting on the other side of a wind tunnel. It’s better to be prepared for the worst.
3) Enter the wind tunnel and cover a distance of 250 meters
When you’re ready, look for a strong gust of wind blowing in one direction. If you step or jump into this gust of wind, you will be flown through the wind tunnel. Use caution when flying as hitting objects in the flight path will slow you down and in extreme circumstances could cause you to exit the wind tunnel.
Since the distance to be covered is 250 meters, crossing one of the two wind tunnels should be enough. Once the task is completed, you will be rewarded with 12,000 experience points.
