The coral buddies in Fortnite are the stars of a Week 6 challenge tasking players to interact with closed clams located around the Coral Castle POI.

Here's how to complete the Signal the Coral Buddies Week 6 challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.

Coral Buddies Fortnite: How to Complete the Challenge

This challenge is super straightforward and easy to accomplish solo within one game.

As shown by YouTuber HarryNinetyFour, players will first want to ping Coral Castle before jumping out of the Battle Bus. Thankfully, the POI is usually one of the least popular landing spots as it is located in the northwest part of the map.

The first closed clam to signal is located towards the southern part of the POI towards the middle on one of the smaller mounds of sand near a rock.

Next, take a quick swim over to the western part of the POI, where on another sandy hill will be the second closed clam to signal.

Lastly, the third and final closed clam can be found at the northern end of the Coral Castle POI near another rock.

Just like that, the coral buddies have been signaled and another 20,000 XP is in the bag.
