Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1’s Week 4 challenges are live and they task players to “travel distance using Kinetic Ore.” Here’s everything you need to know about Kinetic Ore including what is it, where to find it, and how to travel with it.

With the Winterfest Quests now expired, Epic Games have brought another batch of weekly Quests for players to get a nice XP boost for the season’s Battle Pass. Alongside hunting and taming wildlife, players are tasked to “travel distance using Kinetic Ore.”

Here’s a breakdown of what Kinetic Ore is, its location on the map, and how to complete the Fortnite Quest to travel with it.

What is Kinetic Ore in Fortnite?

Kinetic Ore is the purple, glowing blocks you’ll find around the Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 map.

Striking Kinetic Ore with your pickaxe will cause make it fly in the direction you’re facing, smashing through builds and damaging any player that it hits. Standing on it when it’s launched will carry you with it, giving you the low gravity effect to prevent fall damage.

Fortnite’s Kinetic Ore can be found all over the Shattered Slabs POI in the southwest corner of the map. Just head to the quarry area and look for the purple glowing rocks.

How to travel distance with Kinetic Ore in Fortnite

The most consistent way of traveling distance with Kinetic Ore in Fortnite is to aim up at the sky when hitting the rock with your pickaxe, then climb on top before it launches.

Your character should stay on top of the Kinetic Ore as it flies through the air but you’ll probably have to do it a few times to cover the 1,000 meters needed for the challenge.
