Fortnite Season 5 Week 12 has begun and gives you a new set of challenges to complete. Again, this week’s challenges come in waves, meaning you’ll have to complete the prerequisite to reach the next goal. One challenge you may have trouble with is destroying inflatable tubes at gas stations. Before you can try this one, you’ll need to complete the first two stages – which require you to deal damage within 15 seconds of gliding (best done in Team Rumble), and to visit Scenic Spot, Gorgeous Gorge, and Mount Kay.
Once you do those first two challenges, you can start phase 3 to destroy the tubes. In this guide, we’ll show you where to find the tubes and how to destroy them as easily as possible. Here̵
Where to find gas stations
Before you get to the point of cutting tubing, be aware of the best way to meet this challenge. First, jot down the map above (courtesy of Fortnite.gg), which shows the locations of all gas stations on the map. They all have inflatable tubes, which come in the shape of llamas. Each gas station has two inflatable llamas and you must destroy three to complete the challenge.
Since gas stations have only two tubes, you will need to visit two to complete this challenge. The other thing to mention is that once you destroy a tubeman, it’s gone for the rest of the match. This means that if an enemy player hits you to the gas station and takes out the tube men in front of you, you should try another location (or a different match).
How to destroy inflatable tube men at gas stations
Now that you know how the challenge works, we recommend starting a Team Rumble match so that you can easily respawn in the air after getting out. Head to one of the less populated areas like Catty Corner and make your way to the gas station. If possible, take them out with your pickaxe and then jump off a high surface to eliminate yourself. You will then spawn in the air, so slide northwest to Lazy Lake or south to Colossal Coliseum to reach the next gas station.
With luck, the tubemes will still be there, so destroy one more to complete the challenge and earn 20,000 XP. Don’t worry if for some reason you only destroy one or two tubes in a match. Your progress is carried over from match to match, so you can start a new one to pick up where you left off.
