What is The Pit in Fortnite?

Similar to the Freaky Flights challenges that just dropped, the last four challenges of the Cosmic Summer event require players to travel to The Pit in order to complete them. Here's a breakdown of what The Pit is, and how to get there in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

What is The Pit in Fortnite?

The final batch of Cosmic Summer challenges has arrived early for some players, and they have confirmed that they can't be done on the usual Battle Island. Instead, players will need to head on over to The Pit, a Fortnite Creative island. Here's how:

  1. Launch Fortnite
  2. Head to "Creative"
  3. Select the "Island Code" option
  4. Enter the code: 4590-4493-7113

Created by professional Fortnite Creative map designer Geerzy, The Pit pits players in a free-for-all creative lobby to take each other out. Upon spawning in, there are all types of loot for players to equip before joining in on the FFA rampage below.

This setup is perfect for those looking to complete the last four Cosmic Summer Challenges Epic Games has released:

  • Get 50 headshots in The Pit
  • Eliminate players with 5 different types of weapons (e.g. Assault Rifle, Shotgun, Sniper, SMG and Pistol) in a single match in The Pit
  • Build 500 structures in The Pit
  • Destroy 500 structures in The Pit

Completing these challenges will net players a total of 105,000 XP towards their Battle Passes, so be sure not to miss out.

Fortnite's Cosmic Summer event will end on July 5, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
