As part of Fortnite Season 7, week 13, you’ll have a whole new set of challenges to test your list. While most of these new challenges aren’t terribly difficult, many of them have more depth than you might get used to during this season. You probably won’t be able to complete the latest challenge naturally without effort – and that’s why we’re in.
In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know to complete this challenge. This is how to get Marigold’s message from Dead Drop in Fortnite.
You can find Marigold’s message at the Dead Drop found east of the Weeping Woods. It is located just south of the large purple area in the center of the map. Use the map above for more details (thanks, Fortnite.gg). You can land here in no time as it is a generally less busy area, although it is a challenging one. Even so, stopping at a nearby station to buy a weapon might not be a bad idea since there are deadly wolves near your destination (see more on that below).
In this case, we recommend coming here with a group, so that you can protect each other when one of you tries to collect the message. And as a rule, we recommend trying this in Team Rumble so you can come back if you’re eliminated early.
When you land here, you will encounter a pack of hungry and dead wolves. They deal a lot of damage and can take you down quickly, especially if you don’t have a shield. If you land directly next to Dead Drop, you can definitely gather the message quickly and make your escape without being eliminated by the wolves. However, it’s best to play it safe and get some gear first.
Whichever option you choose, go to Dead Drop and simply interact with it to complete the challenge. Remember, you’ll need to press square on PlayStation, NS on Xbox and Y on Nintendo Switch to interact with the object, so keep that in mind. Once completed, you will receive credits for completing the challenge, along with 30,000 XP.
It’s important to note that you must complete three prerequisite challenges before you can complete this one. This includes repairing IO equipment, building structures at the Corny Complex, and for destroying stolen IO credentials. Once you’ve completed those three, you’ll be able to start working on this challenge.
