Here’s how to complete the Swim over hatches at the agency and open faction locked chests at different spy bases challenges.

Epic Games released the v12.61 Fortnite update today, the final update of Chapter 2 Season 2. In the last major update, v12.60, Epic added in new Fortnite challenges called ‘Storm The Agency’. Players expected these challenges to be released last Thursday, the day when Fortnite challenges always unlock, but this wasn’t the case.

In an email highlighting what was coming in the v12.61 update, Epic stated that the Storm The Agency challenges will be released at 10 AM after the v12.61 update was live. Players not only have the chance to earn a bunch of last minute season XP, but Epic have been kind enough to provide three cosmetics for free upon completing some of the challenges.

There’s a pickaxe, wrap, and a glider that players can get upon completing these Storm The Agency challenges. The challenges are pretty straightforward to complete, but we’ve created a quick guide for the Fortnite challenges that players might be stuck completing.

As provided by the name of the challenge, players need to swim over hatches at the agency. The hatches you need to switch over are located in the water around the agency. There’s a total of five hatches. Here’s what they look like in-game:

Open a faction locked chest at different spy bases

If you’re not aware of what a faction locked chest is, it’s a chest that can only be found at spy bases which require you to be scanned in order for it to open. You’ll need to disguise yourself as a henchman in order for you to be able to open the faction located chest.

The bases are the SHark, the Agency, the Yacht, Grotto and Rig, that needs to be updated.

Article called them bases, when it meant Safehouses. But the challenge actually is for the Safehouses, not the bases, so it’s just a word choice problem, not misdirecting to the wrong location.

What is your favorite skin(s) in the battle pass? Mine are Maya and Midas. I like maya because you can customize her, and midas is just a clean skin. One of the much better tier 100 skins. I also like skye. meowscles is O.K. the other skins are just meh.
