Fortnite Propane Tanks – Where to Find – Fortnite Wiki GuideMarch 6, 2020
To destroy structures with propane tanks in Fortnite, players are going to want to visit The Rig. This is one of the five new locations in Chapter 2: Season 2 and is by far the best place to go if you want to complete this challenge quickly.
As you can see on the map below, you’ll find The Rig in the southwest corner of the map.
While you’re here, you’ll want to watch out for Henchmen, so we suggest using a phone booth to disguise yourself and avoid detection.
In Fortnite, propane tanks are small red canisters that have graffiti on the side. They can be found all over the island, but The Rig has the highest concentration of them by far.
There are two really good spots on The Rig you’ll want to visit. One is in the northeast corner, right next to the building marked #2. The other is inside a vent, close to the same building. See the image below for more details.
However, finding the Fortnite propane tank locations is only half the battle, now you’ll need to use them to destroy structures. Sometimes, one tank will be enough to destroy a structure, but other times, you’ll need to stack up multiple to ensure you complete destruction.
Once you’ve found one or two tanks, simply follow the on-screen command to pick it up and move it close to a structure you want to destroy. Once you’ve got it placed properly, back up a good distance, fire a shot at it, and watch it go boom!
