The latest season of Fortnite has presented an aquatic overhaul, with players diving into a flooded theme that has brought about a lot of new features. These include deadly sharks, motorboats, and new items in the Fortnite item shop to enjoy. Week eight of the season brought in a new challenge, known as Motorboat Mayhem.

What is Fortnite Motorboat Mayhem?

This challenge saw players heading over to Lazy Lake. Upon arrival, they would be tasked with taking on a time trial, after which they would be rewarded with a hefty 35,000 XP. When you combine this with the other timed events from the season, you are looking at a rather decent amount of experience points for you to earn. 

The vent can be found in the southwest section of Lazy Lakes. Once you have arrived, there will be motorboats for you to pilot, so you just have to pick one and head to the starting line. 

How to Complete Motorboat Mayhem

Once you have your boat read, get yourself over to the blue ring, which serves as the starting line. You will then see a countdown timer begin, as blue coins begin to appear. These will be for the player to collect, as they form a track for you to follow. 

Overall, your task is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is follow the trail of blue coins and find the last one before the timer runs out. Once you have done so, you will have completed the Motorboat Mayhem time trial and will have earned yourself 35,000 XP for your troubles. 

It might take you a bit of getting used to at first, especially if you haven’t driven a boat in Fortnite before. Getting to grips with the mechanics can be something that takes a bit of practice, but once you do, you shouldn’t have too much trouble in completing it. You have enough time to complete the trial in a timely manner too, so there’s no real need for you to panic. 

If you do really want to challenge yourself, however, then you could consider going to the event as soon as you jump off the bus. There will be many players who have had the same idea as you have, and what will ensue is a competitive race filled with many players competing to finish the race first. There isn’t any real reasoning behind this, since there is no additional reward for finishing first, as everyone will receive the same amount of XP for completing the task. It’s still a lot of fun, regardless of the reasons you do it. 

Sadly, at the moment we only have the motorboat to use for this water-based time trial. We have been spoilt in other areas as of late as far as vehicles are concerned, however. Land vehicles including trucks, taxis, and sports cars have all been added to the game, giving players far more mobility when traversing the battlegrounds of the popular title from Epic Games. In the meantime, don’t forget to check out the new items in the Fortnite item shop, with more expected to be added soon.
