Where to find Hidden Lanterns in the Fortnite Lantern Fest 2024

There are a total of four lanterns that you need to find, out of which two are currently available. The remaining ones will go live at a later date. Here’s how you can find them:

Rooftop Lantern

This lantern is located on top of a building. Here’s how you can get it:

  2. Once you’ve found them, head to the building with the sign of a fishing hook on its side. Collect a fishing rod from here.
  3. In the corner of the room, you will find a pool. Use the fishing rod to catch a hop flopper and then head back to the building with the fishing hook.
  4. Opposite this building, you should see a staircase. The lantern is on the building opposite this staircase.

  5. The final Lantern is in this room behind the boxes.

How to solve the puzzles in the Fortnite Lantern Fest 2024

Just like the lanterns, there are four puzzles that you need to solve. However, only two are accessible right now. Here are the solutions to these puzzles:

  • Horse (Cyan): Green + Blue
  • Pyramid (White): Red + Green + Blue

To set up the Dining Table, you will have to purchase the items from the Bazaar with the coins that you earn from completing the challenges.
