Twitch streamer squatingdog has put together an awesome map showing the locations of all the objectives for the OPen Water mission. Check it out above to get an idea of where to complete the different objectives needed to complete this mission.

Land at Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs, and Dirty Docks

This objective is fairly straightforward. Land at the three named locations: Craggy Cliffs, Salty Springs, and Dirty Docks. Easy enough.

Hide Inside 3 Hideouts in Different Matches

The ability to hide in hideouts is a new feature in Fortnite Chapter 2. As the name suggests certain things can be hidden inside. The things you can jump inside are haystacks and dumpsters. Inside you the hideout you can…hide. Do this 3 times across 3 matches to complete this objective.

Search 7 Chests at Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows

Another fairly easy objective. Land at either Craggy Cliffs or Misty Meadows and search chests in that area. This objective can be done across multiple matches so don’t sweat if you don’t find them all in one. Also keep in mind Team Rumble has a higher chest spawn rate so maybe play this mode if you want it done quick.

Eliminate 2 Opponents With a Sniper Rifle

Loot a Sniper Rifle and use it to kill 2 opponents. If you have trouble doing this in BR, maybe play Team Rumble since you can easily respawn and try again.

Be Crouched within 20m of an Opponent for a Total of 10 Seconds

Pretty straightforward objective. Get near an opponent and crouch. Ideally you will do this without them noticing you are nearby. Some situations where this may be possible includes build-offs, hideouts, or even even first drops. It also doesn’t appear you need to do all 10 seconds in a row, so you can space it out over multiple matches.

Deal 500 damage with Pistols to Opponents

Use a pistol to deal damage to opponents. This can be done across multiple game types (Team Rumble is the best) and multiple matches. Deal enough damage and the objective will pop.

Search 7 Ammo Boxes in a Single Match

Fairly straightforward objective here. You need to search 7 ammo boxes in a single match. Ideally you can accomplish this by landing in areas no one else is. This is best done on Team Rumble since spawn rates are higher.

Get an Elimination for 50m or Further

Take out someone from a distance. Ideally you will use something like a Sniper Rifle or Assault Rifle to do the job as you will need to have some accuracy.

Survive 10 Storm Phases

It’s easiest to do this in solo since you can basically just wait for the Storm Phase to roll in and run around in it. Stock lots of healing to survive the phase and do this 10x times. Pretty easy.

Deal 150 Damage within 10 Seconds of Leaving a Hideout

Get into a hideout and wait for an enemy to come near. Jump out and deal damage to them. Deal enough damage to complete this mission objective.

This concludes our Open Water mission guide. The next set of objectives will be released on soon. Check back on HTR to learn how to complete those new set of objectives.
