With the start of Fortnite Season 6, the 11th week, players must complete new batch challenges. Consistent with the overall theme of Season 6, the challenges this week are very simple and can be overcome by playing most of them naturally. There are only a few pairs that you need extra help with, one of which is that you need to put the spirit crystal on a high mountain.
This can be difficult if you do not know where the highest mountain is or how to place spirit crystals on its summit. But here we come. In this guide, we will show you everything you need to know about locating the highest mountain in the game, as well as placing a crystal on top of it. Here’s how to use spirit crystals for the highest mountain of Fortnite.
Where to find the tallest Fortnite mountain
Step one is to locate the tallest mountain in the game. Veteran Fortnite players will likely already know where this is, but new players, or those who don’t play often, might be unsure. The tallest mountain is found just south of Catty Corner in the southeastern section of the map, close to the shore. By using the map above (courtesy of Fortnite.gg), you can see its exact location.
So, we advise landing here right away so you don’t have to worry about climbing up. If you miss the peak of the mountain or simply opt to land in a different location, you can still reach the top by building a ramp. Alternatively, if you play on Team Rumble, you can get to places easier since you respawn in the air after you’re eliminated.
This way, you can glide over to your destination much faster than building a ramp. If the match starts and your spawn isn’t anywhere near the mountain, you might want to make your way close to it and then get eliminated so you spawn in the air close to the destination. Then you can get to it easier.
How to place a spirit crystal at the tallest mountain
At the peak, you’ll see a crystal sitting next to a flag. When you approach it, all you have to do is interact with the crystal by pressing Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, or Y on Nintendo Switch.
You don’t need to go anywhere else or collect materials to get through this challenge. Simply land on the peak, run-up to the crystal, interact with it, and you’ll earn credit for finishing the challenge.
The nice thing is that you can literally complete this challenge in 30 seconds or so, which is not bad, considering you get 24,000 XP after you’ve placed the crystal.
