Fortnite Crash Pads are back! They've been unvaulted as part of the No Sweat Summer event, so you'll be able to use them in a variety of inventive ways. You can also cause havoc with another player's plans by deflating a Crash Pad with a well-placed bullet, which is something to be aware of whenever you deploy one. 

You also need to locate at least three of them for one of the Week 9 challenges. So, if you're ready jump into the action—literally—here's where you can bounce on three separate Crash Pads in Fortnite, as well as how to find more around Sanctuary.

Where to bounce on three separate Crash Pads without landing

One of the Week 9 challenges tasks you with bouncing on three separate Crash Pads without landing. Luckily, there are three already laid out for you over at the beach on the eastern edge of the map—I've marked it on the map above if you're having trouble finding the location.

Once you've found the spot, swim over to the first one and use it to bounce across to the next one, then the third.  It might take a couple of goes to line yourself up correctly, but once you've managed to hit all three without touching the ground (or water, in this case), you'll complete the challenge.

Fortnite Crash Pads: How to find them 

If you've already completed the challenge and just want to cause a little chaos, you can find Crash Pads almost anywhere, so keep an eye out whenever you loot chests or supply drops. It also pays to be especially vigilant when you're running around as you can find them on the ground too.

The Crash Pad can be deployed while falling, so it may save you from an otherwise lethal drop. Reaching the top of a building quickly can be invaluable too, whether it's to pursue an enemy or get out of trouble quickly. Crash Pads can also deflect some throwable items like grenades—just be prepared for the chaos that might create. Heck, maybe it even works with Boogie Bombs (opens in new tab)
