Fortnite’s Storm the Agency challenges are now live alongside the game’s 12.61 update, giving you a few more tasks to complete before the Doomsday event occurs and ushers in Season 3 of the battle royale shooter. One of the trickier challenges from the bunch asks you to open a faction locked chest at three different spy bases. If you’re having trouble tracking those down, this guide will explain where the spy bases are and how to complete the challenge.
Where Are The Spy Base Locations?
Much like the safe houses you need to visit for a separate Storm the Agency challenge, spy bases have been a fixture of the map since the start of Season 2. These are a bit more overt than the safe houses, however; while those are disguised to look like regular buildings, the spy bases are all named locations, so they’re much easier to track down. We’ve marked down where a few of the chests at these bases are located below:
Faction chest in The Grotto
Beneath the stairs next to the phone booth.
Faction chest in The Rig
On the second floor of the northwest building.
Faction chest in The Yacht
In the far corner of the lowest floor.
How To Complete The Challenge
Each spy base features a handful of faction locked chests, but to complete this challenge, you’ll need to open one at three different bases, so you can’t just hang around one location. You also can’t open the chests like normal; you’ll first need to hop into a phone booth and disguise yourself, which will then allow you to unlock them.
Fortunately, each spy bases is located very close to a phone booth, so once you know where the chests are located, you shouldn’t have much trouble completing the challenge. Open a chest at three different spy bases at you’ll earn a special Steel Shadow pickaxe.
We’re quickly approaching the end of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2. Season 3 of the game is scheduled to begin on June 11, which means there are only a few days left to complete any weekly challenges you may have missed from earlier in the season. If you need help finishing up any of those, you can find all of our maps and guides in our Fortnite Season 2 challenges roundup.
