Secret Fortnite Season 4 Challenge guide: Cleanse Tanks & Escape

Our Gnome villain is at it again. Here are the next two stages of the Fortnite Season 4 secret challenge: Cleanse Tanks & Escape.



The Fortnite Season 4 secret challenges continue with two new stages added in v14.40. You can still complete the first few stages of the challenges if you haven’t already. The guides to those will be linked later in the article.

In case you haven’t been following the theme of the season, one of the Gnomes has gone rogue and begun trying to sabotage major POIs around the map. The story, fittingly, mirrors that of a comic book – where the heroes deal with street-level villains while the writer builds up to the cosmic threat. In our case, it’s Galactus.

In this update, we saw two new secret challenges that both offer 10K XP. Here’s how to complete them.

Cleanse Tanks

Both of these challenges take place in Slurpy Swamp. The first stage requires you to cleanse the tanks in the main building. All you need to do is jump inside of them.

The top of the tanks – which is usually on – won’t be there for the Fortnitemares update. Jump inside and go to your next location.



Next, head to the northern side of the same building and look for the wall with a massive hole in it. Here, our antagonist Gnome will be waiting for you.

All you need to do is walk up to him and he’ll shoot himself out of the building. It’s realistically possible to stumble upon these challenges and complete them by accident.

We doubt that this will be the last that we see of the Gnome villain. He’s clearly linked with Slurpy Swamp in some way – possible a displaced leader of the Slurp factory.

You can find the guide to the Most Wanted challenge here and Downfall challenge here. We’ll update you with the next stages of this secret subplot when the become available.


How to complete all Fortnite Season 8 punchcard challenges

Fortnite Season 8 has reintroduced punchcard challenges. Here are all of the Fortnite Punchcard challenges and how to complete them.



Fortnite Season 8 has replaced the traditional weekly challenges with the punchcard system. Here are all of the Fortnite Season 8 punchcard challenges and how to complete them.

Season 8 has been pretty ludicrous so far. The Island is filled with Kevin Cubes, POIs have been destroyed by the Mothership, and there’s a cursed unicorn named Fabio Sparklemane. But that’s not all that’s changed.

Weekly challenges are no more, and they have been replaced by the infamous punchcard system. While players rejoiced at first, the minimal XP gain by playing Battle Royale was less than sufficient.

Regardless, the main source of XP this season will come from the Fortnite daily, weekly, and character punchcard challenges. We will keep this guide up to date with the latest punchcard challenges.

Fortnite: Where to leave an IO car at an Alien settlement



fortnite holly hatchery

This week’s Legendary challenges have players leaving IO cars at Alien settlements for surveillance purposes.

A new set of weekly Legendary challenges releases each week. Completing these challenges rewards players with a massive amount of XP. However, Legendary challenges are only available for 7 days.

That means you will have to complete all five challenges within a week to get the most XP. Some challenges can be difficult, while others are fairly easy.

Legendary challenges often follow a storyline that changes from week to week. This week, Doctor Slone wants to trick the Aliens into abducting a “Special Surprise.” Starting off, players will need to park an IO car at an Alien settlement.

Fortnite IO car locations

The hardest part of this challenge is finding and securing an IO car. Not just any car will do. For those who don’t know, the IO cars are black sedans with a white IO symbol on the side.

Luckily, these cars only spawn in select locations. You won’t need to wander around to try and find one. IO cars can be found at one of the eight locations marked on the map below. However, the locations marked in red are recommended to complete this quest quicker.

Where to park IO cars at Alien settlement

This is another two-part quest. Once the player has an IO car, they need to take it to an Alien Settlement. However, there is only one Alien settlement on the map.

The map below shows the location of the Alien settlement. The only location considered an Alien settlement is Holly Hatchery. All a player needs to do is drive the IO car to Holly Hatchery and park it somewhere.

Some of the IO car locations were marked red because they are closest to Holly Hatchery. If a player were to get a car at Corny Complex, it would take much longer to drive to the Alien settlement.

Players will earn 30k XP once the challenge is completed. For more Fortnite, check out every Alien Artifact location in Season 7 and stay tuned for more news and guides.
