Fortnite has introduced two new seasonal challenges that involve the use of tall grass. The first challenge is relatively simple and requires players to hide in the tall grass for at least ten seconds, which can be easily done with knowledge of the grass’s location.
The second challenge is more complex, as players must deal damage to an opponent within 45 seconds of crouching in the tall grass. To accomplish this, the player must adopt a more strategic approach.
Fortnite offers numerous challenges throughout the season to enhance the gameplay experience and accelerate progress in Battle Pass. One of the challenges introduced earlier this season is “Hide in tall grass for ten seconds”, which is still open for players who haven’t finished it yet. However, a more recent challenge was added on January 14th, 2022, which requires players to “Inflict damage on an opponent within 45 seconds of crouching in tall grass.” The primary obstacle for completing both challenges is finding the suitable location in Fortnite. This article aims to give detailed instructions on how to locate the different areas with tall grass and provide useful suggestions to complete the challenges effortlessly.
Fortnite’s tall grass can only be found in the green section located on the east side of the game’s map, making it easy to search for. However, the Daily Bugle area is the most ideal spot to explore due to its numerous tall grasses surrounding it, providing players with a higher chance of finding it. Players can leverage this location to complete the challenges that involve hiding or causing damage to opponents while crouching in tall grass.

Players who opt not to begin at The Daily Bugle can explore other parts of the Fortnite map to find tall grass. For instance, some patches of tall grass are located to the North West of The Sanctuary, while another area with tall grass can be found towards the southern end of The Joneses. The map below gives a general overview of the regions where tall grass can be found in Fortnite.
Once found, players need to damage their opponent while crouching in the tall grass within 45 seconds to complete the challenge. To enhance the chances of encountering an opponent, players should go to crowded areas where many players drop, grab a weapon, and crouch.
One effective strategy to complete the “Damage an opponent within 45 seconds of crouching in the tall grass” challenge is to drop near the outskirts of the Daily Bugle, where many players are likely to land. Instead of entering the landmark, collect weapons from the scattered loot and wait in the tall grass while crouching. Keep waiting until you spot an opponent, who may also be hiding in the grass or leaving the area. It’s crucial to remain crouched in the tall grass until someone is nearby.
If you still need to complete the previous challenge of “Hide in tall grass for ten seconds,” you can do this simultaneously with the “Damage an opponent within 45 seconds of crouching in the tall grass” challenge. Stay within the grassy area long enough, and it may be easier to crouch for both challenges. Ensure you are obscured from all sides and stand there for at least ten seconds. You can also move slightly for safety. After completing these steps, you will have finished the challenge.
