The excellent news is that the Excessive Octane quests are fairly simple, and at the same time as a Fortnite newcomer I used to be in a position to full them in solely half-hour or so. To eradicate the additional time required to seek for an Octane in a Battle Royale mode, I caught with the minigame challenges.
To load into foyer for the primary minigame, use the playlist selector on the primary Fortnite menu (click on the playlist, or use X/Sq. relying in your controller kind) and scroll down till you see the Excessive Octane Quests playlist, as seen under.

Rocket League Reside
- Earn 250 factors at RL Reside

This was by far the quickest pair of challenges from the bunch, offered you recognize the trick. Upon spawning into the sport, run by means of the foyer (the place Rocket League esports are displaying on huge TVs — a nice shock!) till you come to 2 portals: Freestyle and Race.
Leap onto the Freestyle portal and also you’ll be transported right into a walled space with floating hoops. Drive into the sector, flip round, and also you’ll see a small crimson hoop within the air. Passing by means of this hoop grants you 20 of the 250 factors you have to full the Rocket League Reside quests.
The best approach to bounce by means of this hoop is to place your self on the ramp within the screenshot above, drive up the ramp straight on the hoop, and use enhance to make any wanted changes. With slightly apply, you may even bounce straight off the wall and again by means of the ring for much more factors.

Rocketeer Ruins is a King of the Hill minigame the place gamers compete to remain inside touring hardpoints across the map. Fortunately, gamers merely need to drive by means of every hardpoint to mark progress in the direction of the search, and an enormous overhead arrow factors straight there. A few of these are difficult to get to, however you may have loads of time to boost-jump there or discover a ramp to get you to the hardpoint zone.
As soon as a hardpoint is lively, comply with the arrow there after which spend the remainder of the time in search of cash (seen above) till the subsequent level prompts. These cash are unfold across the map on a number of ranges, so test on ramps in addition to on the bottom ground.
I used to be in a position to full each quests earlier than the spherical ended. You’ll want to test your progress to make sure you’ve visited every distinctive hardpoint, as my foyer repeated a couple of hardpoints earlier than I used to be in a position to go to the final one.
- Full a lap in lower than 2 minutes, 30 seconds

Merely load into the minigame (a personal foyer will work simply superb), hop in an Octane to start out the race, and use your Rocket League abilities to finish two laps. Even with fairly a couple of slip ups and collisions, it’s simple to beat the goal time in case you decide up loads of enhance pods. After ending two laps, double-check that you simply’ve accomplished the search, and also you’re good to go.
Octanes vs Snipers
- Deal 600 injury (as a Sniper)
- Remove a Sniper opponent (as an Octane)
This minigame jogs my memory of the nice ol’ days of Halo Forge. Half the gamers within the foyer are armed pedestrians on a platform, whereas the opposite half are driving Octanes. Unsurprisingly, each groups try to eradicate one another by any means needed. As soon as the minigame begins you’ll be positioned on certainly one of two groups, which swap sides on the finish of every spherical.
As an Octane, you’re attempting to ram into the Snipers, so hit a ramp and use your enhance to intention at opposing gamers. This is usually a little bit difficult, particularly in case you’re nonetheless getting used to how the Fortnite Octane handles, nevertheless it’s not too exhausting. When you eradicate one Sniper, you’ve accomplished one of many two quests.
As a Sniper, merely shoot at incoming Octanes to deal a mere 600 injury earlier than the spherical ends. Watch out to not be hit by a flying automobile, as it will finish your spherical and restrict your injury output.
After taking part in each side of the minigame to finish every quest, you’re free to exit the foyer.

Offered your Epic Video games and Rocket League accounts are correctly linked, the Whiplash must be offered the subsequent time you boot up both sport. When you don’t get the pop up, double test that you simply correctly accomplished every quest. In any other case, give the servers a couple of hours to ship your objects.

I’d like to see an identical in-game system to showcase the huge creativity within the Rocket League neighborhood and add some pleasurable new sport modes.
