Fortnite Week 10: Jigsaw Puzzle Piece Locations (Season 5 Challenge)
Fortnite Season 5, Week 10's challenges are now live--the final ones of this season. We've already detailed what the week involves, including how to complete the Search Between Covered Bridge, Waterfall, and 9th Green challenge in the paid Battle Pass tier. However, in the free section there's also one challenge that requires a bit of legwork, which we've already done to save you some time and effort in tracking down the key locations.
The Search Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces in Basements challenge is pretty self-explanatory in terms of your goal.. But given that the very large Fortnite island has quite a few basements for developer Epic Games to hide jigsaw puzzle pieces in, a little guidance can go a long way in tracking down where you have to go.
Above you'll find a video of the basements that we managed to find the pieces in. Simply head to these locations and before you know it you'll have that challenge under your belt. You can also see the pieces on the map below.
In the lead up to this week's new challenges, Epic Games released Fortnite content update 5.40. The headline feature in this update was the introduced the new Suppressed Assault Rifle. However, Epic also threw the Drum Gun into the vault, which means it won't be available to use until its taken out and reintroduced into the game. You can see all the changes in the full Fortnite content update 5.40 patch notes here.

Week 10 challenges in Fortnite were released Thursday morning at 9 a.m., and perhaps the most fun challenge has players “search jigsaw puzzle pieces in basements.” This one’s just like previous challenges involving gnomes, rubber duckies, or even letters — there are many locations on the map that contain puzzle pieces, but players only need to get seven of them to complete the challenge. In this case, every puzzle piece will be located in some kind of basement, and it does seem like almost every basement on the map has one.
Here’s a map of every known puzzle piece location so far:
Much like similar challenges, the Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces come with an audio cue that sounds like some kind of rattle, and because it has an omnidirectional proximity trigger, players will hear the cue even if they’re a floor above the piece. Each piece appears to be a slightly different shade of blue-white.
For more specific instructions about the locations above, refer to these notes:
Snobby Shores — Go to the second northernmost house that has a basketball court in the backyard, and head down to the basement. (Also note that Snobby Shores has an ATK parked just northeast of this house.)
South of Snobby Shores — Look for the house with a wooden bulkhead basement door on the northern side of the house.
Greasy Grove — Go into the Durr Burger kitchen and take the stairs down to the basement.
South of Greasy Grove — This puzzle piece is in one of those rare basements part of a shabby wooden structure.
West of Shifty Shafts — There’s a cluster of two houses, and the southernmost house has a Jigsaw Puzzle Piece in the basement with a green screen and camera.
Salty Springs — The large white house has a Jigsaw Puzzle Piece in its basement.
West of Retail Row — There’s also one just west of Retail Row in a house.
East Pleasant Park — On the eastern side of Pleasant Park, it’s in the house with the bulkhead basement doors.
West Pleasant Park — Another house in western-central Pleasant Park has a piece in the basement.
Northeast of Tomato Temple — East of the road leading north from Tomato Temple, there’s a house with bulkhead doors that go down into a basement with a puzzle piece.
Risky Reels — Supposedly, Risky Reels has several basements, each with a puzzle piece inside it.
East of Risky Reels — In this cluster of two houses, the easternmost house has a basement accessible via bulkhead doors.
