One of the latest Milestone Challenges requires players to light up campfires. The challenge extends across 5 stages, starting from three campfires and eventually leading to 15, 50, 100, and 150 campfires. Interestingly, campfires do not work in Pickaxe Frenzy, and players can continuously light up a single campfire.

A Reddit post on r/FortNiteBR further informs that players can light up a single campfire 150 times and complete the challenge with the utmost ease.

Even though Pickaxe Frenzy seems fun because of no weapons, the close-range melee combat in the mode gets really intense at times. Moreover, players need to ensure their safety while completing the ‘campfire’ challenge.

The LTM also limits a player’s maximum resources to just ten per resource, making it impossible to build monumental structures. A build in a Pickaxe Frenzy can only hinder the opponent’s mobility.

Hence, it is wise to build a structure around you before lighting up the campfire. Even if a player approaches, the structures will provide you with enough time to avoid an unfortunate situation.

Ever since Chapter 2 Season 5 of Fortnite released, players have discovered a plethora of such glitches and bugs. While a lot of players feel that the XP progression in the current season is tougher than the previous seasons, some have already availed of the benefits of such glitches.
