Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 2 has brought tanks that you can drive around in while dishing out damage to your enemies. Here’s everything you need to know about them, including how to destroy them.

Fortnite has gone through several changes after the Chapter 3, Season 2 update, including the appearance of red and blue lines circling areas of the island and the addition of a drivable Armored Battle Bus.

Another new addition is the tank that players can drive across the terrain while battling their enemies. If you want to know the Fortnite tank locations as well as how to destroy them then we’ve got you covered.

Tanks can be found at locations on the Fortnite map that are controlled by the Imagined Order, which you can find by checking inside the red lines. Most POIs on the island are currently under the control of this organization.

Here are all the Fortnite tank locations:

  • Command Cavern (2 tanks)
  • The Fortress (1 tank)
  • Tilted Towers (1 tank)
  • Coney Crossroads (1 tank)
  • The Daily Bugle (1 tank)
  • Rocky Reels (1 tank)
  • Condo Canyon (1 tank)

Command Cavern is probably the best of these locations to visit as two tanks spawn there. However, this POI is heavily-guarded, so we recommend packing some extra shield potions along with some epic weapons before heading there.

Tanks in Fortnite

Fortnite tanks come with four seats, and whoever sits in the driver’s seat will move the vehicle and shoot explosives. You can aim the explosive gun with your camera controls and successful hits will deal 100 damage to targets.

There is also a seat for using the turret, along with two roof seats for players that want to fire their own weapons. The right side of the screen is where you can check your fuel and how fast you’re moving.

Tanks also come with a boost function that briefly lets you move faster in exchange for some fuel. If you’re worried about enemies hiding or approaching from far away then you can use the thermal targeting vision to spot them.

If you want to take down a tank quickly then you’ll need to target the bronze panel beneath the turrets on the front side, as this will eventually leave the driver vulnerable and you can finish them off.

You can also try using Remote Explosives as they received a buff in Chapter 3, Season 2 that lets them dish out a large amount of damage to tanks. Another simple trick is to get in the tank with your enemy so that they can’t use it against you.
