One of the seasonal Fortnite Quests is to Destroy and collect telescope parts in a single match, but unlike normal seasonal quests, this one is on a timer. You’ve only got one week to finish this quest, so we’re here to help you out.

We will help you figure out where the telescopes are and what to do to finish this quest! Don’t worry we won’t leave you hanging. You’ll be able to cash in that 25K XP.

Where Are the Telescopes Located?

We’ve made it easy for you guys. Just check out the map below and make your way to those spots. All of them, except for one, are located in a Seven Outpost. You’ll also be able to open vaults there for another quest – basically, you kill two birds with one stone.

How Does the Destroy the Telescope Quest Work?

So, as the title says, you’ve got to destroy telescopes. Three of them to be exact, but the hard part? You need to destroy three in a single game and collect the parts to get the points you need.

Another kink in the armor is that there is a one-week limit, which means everyone will be rushing to the telescope locations. So be prepared for a shootout when you get to one of the locations. Be prepared with the right weapon and a shield.

If you die without finishing the quest, then you’ll have to start all over again in the next round.

How To Destroy the Telescope?

Another easy answer. You have to hit it with either your weapon or harvesting tool. This means that once it is destroyed a telescope part will pop up for you to collect. Once you’ve done this the first time you’ll have to make your way across the map to one of the other eight, remaining telescopes on the map.

This process will have to be repeated three times throughout a match. It sounds pretty tricky, but with the right equipment and the right skin, you’ll be able to earn the XP for your battle pass in no time!
