Wondering where and how to use an Ascender in Fortnite? Here's what you need to know.

Some Fortnite quests are easier than others, be it for XP or rewards. Some require players to deal damage with a particular weapon or visit a certain number of locations in a single match. Others are a bit more involved, like using an Ascender and deal damage to other players within 30 seconds.

This challenge can be quite a tricky one. Not only do you need to find and use an Ascender, but also another player to deal damage to in a short timeframe.

How to Find and Use an Ascender in Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 2

First, let's clarify what an Ascender is. These are the vertical ziplines that provide quick traversal for players looking to gain higher ground — they're how players get onto the Airships. But, the number of Airships present on the island has been dwindling as the season progresses and the Resistance claims more POIs.

There are still a few Airships scattered around the island, in IO occupied POIs. Command Cavern is the easiest place to complete the challenge. Considering it's quite a hot drop, there should be no shortage of players to damage to within the timeframe. Simply find the bottom of the zipline and interact with it to shoot up onto the Airship.

Players will need to deal a total of 100 damage points to complete the challenge, meaning that this could be a tricky one to nail down from the get-go.
