If you’re rushing to get the Welcome to Gotham City challenges completed before they expire, this cheat sheet map is exactly what you need.
After lots of leaks revealed that a Batman event was coming to Fortnite, it finally dropped on September 21, adding new skins, items and of course, the Gotham City location.
As with any in-game event, there’s also an exclusive set of challenges, entitled ‘Welcome to Gotham City’, with many Batman-themed activities to get up to.
Some of the challenges are fairly straight-forward, such as ‘Use a Batman Grapnel Gun in different matches’, but others will require some more map knowledge and effort.
That’s where this brilliant cheat sheet map from u/flapjack626 will come in handy – every challenge location and requirement is shown here, so you know exactly where you need to go.
Simply keep this beside you will you grind out the challenges, and you’ll have them completed in no time.
Unfortunately, this map is missing some of the locations for the Joker Gas Canisters, as they also spawn at Sunny Steps and Haunted Hills.
Welcome to Gotham City Challenges
- Deal damage to opponents with an Explosive Batarang (250)
- Light up different Bat Signals outside of Gotham City (3)
- Use a Batman Grapnel Gun in different matches (3)
- Defuse Joker gas canisters found in different named locations (3)
- Deal any damage to opponents within 30s of using a Batman Grapnel Gun (1)
- Light a Bat Signal, use a Batman Grapnel Gun, and deal any damage with an Explosive Batarang (1)
The rewards for completing the challenges are well worth the effort too, with a total of 50 battle stars up for grabs and some unique cosmetics.
The challenges are only available while the event lasts, which is until October 6.
How to complete the Tony Stark Awakening Fortnite challenges
Unlock the Iron Man suit by completing these Tony Stark Awakening Challenges in Fortnite.
Fortnite players are undoubtedly familiar with the Awakening Fortnite challenges that Epic introduced to Season 4. These challenges reward players with some unique styles and skin-specific cosmetics. For Tony Stark, the reward is his Iron Man suit.
A lot of players could live without unlocking the Doctor Doom emote or additional Thor style, but most people are going to want the Iron Man suit. Here’s what you’ll need to do to unlock it.
Stage 1: Reach 88 on the speedometer in a Whiplash as Tony Stark
Tony Stark loves to go fast, as shown by his fleet of customized Whiplashes in the Stark Industries garage.
This is the most straightforward challenge of the bunch. All you need to do is find a whiplash and a straightaway. As we mentioned, there are plenty of them in the Stark Industries garage, but a lot of players usually land here.
We recommend landing somewhere like Retail Row or Sweaty Sands. There’s likely to be an open Whiplash, fewer players, and enough real estate to hit 88 mph.
Stage 1: Use an Upgrade Bench as Tony Stark
This stage is as easy as loading into a game of Team Rumble, grabbing whatever item you see, and hitting the nearest Upgrade Bench. There are Upgrade Benches scattered all over the map and you begin a Team Rumble match with enough materials to upgrade a Rare weapon to Epic.
Salty Springs might be the most common location for this challenge since it’s in the middle of the map and is almost always accessible in Team Rumble. The Upgrade Bench is located in the garage of the brick building.
Stage 2: Emote as Tony Stark in the Stark Workshop
We highly recommend Team Rumble for this stage of the challenge unless you don’t mind dying after you emote. Team Rumble is far less crowded and doesn’t spawn the Stark Robots, so it’s much safer.
The workshop is at the lowest level of the main building. If you’re already familiar with Stark Industries, then you’ll recognize it as the location that houses Stark’s Iron Man suits. You’ll need to emote in the center of the platform, which you can see in the video, below.
Unlocking the Tony Stark Awakening challenges is pretty important, considering it’s the only way to grab the Iron Man suit. He’s a central figure of Marvel and of the season, so you won’t want to miss this one.

How to complete your Mystique Awakening challenges in Fortnite
How to unlock the Shapeshifter Fortnite emote with the Mystique Awakening challenges.
Fortnite Season 4 introduced a unique mechanic to unlocking skin-specific cosmetics. We have ‘Awakening’ challenges this season, which allow us to progress through the Battle Pass at our own pace – unlocking some cool cosmetics along the way.
This time, we’re looking at Mystique and her Shapeshifter emote. Completing these challenges will allow you to steal enemy skins once you kill them. Here’s what you’ll need to do.
Stage 1: Use a Phone Booth as Mystique
This is the easiest stage of the Mystique Awakening challenge. All you need to do is find a Phone Booth as Mystique and jump inside. She is the master of disguise, after all.
There are several Phone Booths scattered around the map but the most obvious are those located in Stark Industries and Doom’s Domain. Just like the last two seasons, you can jump inside and disguise yourself as a henchman.
Stage 2: Deal damage with different rarity Pistols as Mystique
From the easiest stage of the challenge to the most annoying. You’re going to need to damage players with different pistol rarities. For this one, you can use the Gray, Green, and Blue normal Pistols or the Purple/Gold Magnum.
There isn’t really much of a guide to this one apart from persistence. Finding normal pistols is relatively easy – too easy, in fact – so you should be able to finish the challenge within a couple of games. The trick is trying not to throw a fight while using a pistol.
We recommend finding a Gray pistol, damaging a player, upgrading to Green and doing the same thing. If you only have the Blue rarity left, it’s probably worth going to Team Rumble and finishing the challenge there. Good luck with this one.
Stage 3: Emote as Mystique after eliminating an opponent
This stage is straightforward, as well. All you need to do is eliminate a player in any mode and emote. As always, Team Rumble will offer the easiest path to completion but it’s probably not necessary.
This emote might be the coolest one of the season and is the ultimate reward for completing the Mystique Awakening challenges. You can steal opponent skins after you kill them. Every want to be a Renegade Raider? Now’s your chance!
We wish the emote lasted for a bit longer, but it’s still a cool way to troll an opponent after they die. It can also mess up some enemy communications if you switch skins at the right time.
If you haven’t already, take a look at our guide to all of the Awakening challenges of Season 4. You can find the rest of them here.
How to deal damage with the “Gatherer remains” in Fortnite Season 4
Here’s how you can grab the Gatherer Remains and compete your Season 4 Week 4 challenges.
Most Fortnite players have kept there eyes on Stark Industries since the update last week, but there was an overlooked addition to the game that passed under everyone’s noses. Galactus has made his first mark on the BR island through his Gorger drones which spawn around the map.
There doesn’t appear to be a set spawn location for these drones. After a week of playing, it seems like these drones use a similar mechanic as the Marauders from last season. Luckily, the reward for battling these drones is a lot more worthy of your time.
The Gorgers will shoot intermittent beams at players while they spawn Gatherer drones to deal additional damage to players. The longer a Gorger drone is alive, the more Gatherers it spawns. These drones will also follow players when they run away, so it’s best to destroy a Gorger as fast as you can (unless you’re doing the Gatherer challenge)
Eliminating a Gorger has the chance to give you some tier-one loot. This is the only known way to obtain a Legendary RPG in Fortnite right now – one of the most powerful weapons in the game. The drones can also drop healing items and some other Epic and Legendary loot.
On top of all of this, you can also use the Gatherer weapon if you act quickly. You can pick up a downed Gatherer before it explodes and use its projectile weapon against other players. Keep in mind that it doesn’t go into your inventory. Swapping weapons or building will force you to drop the gun.
SypherPK released a tutorial video on these new drones and even showcases the weapon that they drop. This video is worth watching, since the Gatherer “remains” are included in a challenge for Week 4.
This week, we’ll be tasked with dealing 10,000 damage with “Gatherer remains.” This will almost certainly be a team-based challenge, similar to some others that we’ve seen this season.
The best way to complete this challenge would be to down a Gatherer and use the weapon on a Gorger. The weapon is a bit too situational to carry around the entire match. Remember: you can’t build or swap weapons while using it. To make matters even more difficult, there don’t appear to be any set spawn locations for the Gatherer fleet.
You should be able to finish the challenge after a few tries, but it will undoubtedly be of the most difficult challenge of the week. Hopefully, you can deal some damage without getting third-partied by real players. Good luck out there!
