Gold Pipe Wrenches in Fortnite: How to Complete Challenge
By Jack O'Dwyer
Gold Pipe Wrenches in Fortnite are just part of the challenges for Week 10.
These tasks are part of the Midas' Missions Challenges which, aside from being aptly-themed, will send you all over the edges of the map in search of Midas' lost equipment. There are several areas where you will find the wrenches, but they tend to be spread out far and can be difficult to locate. Keep in mind that these are just quest items and that picking them up won't have a significant impact on your gameplay.
Gold Pipe Wrenches Fortnite Locations
There are five distinct locations where you can pick up the Gold Pipe Wrench.
The first can be found at the top of Lockie's Lighthouse, just northeast of The Shark. Players can access this location straight from the bus by floating down and landing on the top.
The second can be found in the Steamy Stacks on the eastern side. Keep right past the reactor to the fifth building where you'll find the wrench on a pipe nearest the south wall.
The third is located on the Dirty Docks which can be hidden from view if you're not careful. You'll want to find a metal shack in the middle of the docks next to some equally rusty pipes. The wrench will be in the dug-out between them and you'll need to drop down to reach it.
The fourth wrench doesn't have any set map marks you can refer to, unfortunately. You'll need to rely on your in-game knowledge. Drift as far south as you can, past Misty Meadows, and bank west. You're looking for a configuration of pipes that resemble a stickman running. The community has named this structure "Pipeman" and you'll find the golden wrench in his forward-stretched hand.
The fifth and final Golden Pipe Wrench can be picked up directly north of The Rig in a setup that echoes a forgotten town. The wrench is in the very heart of the town near the base of a pipe statue.
