How To Capture Points In Fortnite

You can recognize the capture points by the iron pillar with purple flags hanging from it. To capture a capture point in Fortnite, you must stay within the circle around the flag until it is hoisted to the top of the pole, which takes about 45 seconds. Conquest will take longer if you leave the circle as the flag will then start to fall.

Once the flag is fully raised, delicious loot will spawn around it. This includes weapons of at least "rare" rarity, ammo, gold bars, and heal items. Also, enemies and crates in the area will be marked for 30 seconds.

If another player has claimed a capture point before you reach it, you cannot raise the flag again to capture it. You must then either travel to another named point on the map to find another, or stop and try again.

For the challenge, you must capture a total of 9 capture points, divided into the following phases:

  • Phase 1: 1 capture point
  • Phase 2: 1 capture point
  • Phase 3: 2 capture points
  • Phase 4: 2 capture points
  • Phase 5: 3 capture points

Now you should know how it works and hopefully have no more problems!
