Where to destroy different types of cactus plants in Fortnite

Fortnite Chapter 3 is rolling on, and for week eight’s quest, Epic wants you to destroy different types of cactus plants around the map.

I don’t know what these poor plants ever did to us, but smashing a few will net you an easy 20,000 XP and help you climb the battle pass ranks. The only tough part is figuring out where to find cactus plants. With a quarter of the Fortnite map being desert, there’s a lot of ground to cover.

Thankfully, we’ve got you covered. Here’s where to find different types of cactus plants in Fortnite Chapter 3.

Head to the southwest region of the map, not too far from where the desert meets the grass. You may remember this spot (marked on the map) as a popular place to find a Klombo dinosaur.

Look for groupings of cactus plants (or as I like to say, cacti) of the following three types:

Smash those three kinds of cactus plants and you’ll complete the challenge, earning that easy 20,000 XP.
