Epic Games have finally brought vehicle modifications to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 6 so that you can upgrade cars with different add-ons, and here’s everything you need to know about this.
Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 has quickly won over fans with its various new additions, including weapon crafting, tamable wild animals, and a whole new set of quests in the new Battle Pass. Now, Epic Games have added another neat feature.
Modified vehicles had been teased by leakers a while back, and a few fans noticed their presence in trailers for the new season. Now, the v16.20 update, has finally brought vehicle mods to the battle royale.
What do Fortnite Chonkers tires do?
The first vehicle mods to be released in Fortnite are new tires known as Chonkers, and these let you ride up steep surfaces such as hills. They also provide you with a better grip and bouncy suspension when driving off-road.
Additionally, once you’ve found a pile of these tires, you can use them for cover during combat situations where enemies have surrounded you. This makes them worth chasing after the next time you acquire a vehicle.
Where to find Chonkers in Fortnite
These modifications can be found within some new structures that have appeared at various garages around The Island. You’ll be able to acquire at least one of these tires by visiting any of the various gas stations.
Luckily, these are spread out all over the map, and once you visit them, you can find Chonkers either lying on the floor or among stacks of tires. You take a look at their locations below:
How to use Chonkers tires in Fortnite
Now that you know where to find the Chonkers tires in Fortnite, you’ll just need to know how to use them. Luckily they’re fairly easy to put together if you know where they are, and all you need is a vehicle to modify.
Once you’ve acquired a car, here’s what you need to do:
- Visit the garage at Catty Corner, and enter the building where Sparkplug spawns
- Find the Chonkers tires lying on the ground and pick them up.
- Hold aim and throw the Chonkers tires directly at your car.
That’s all there is to it! Now, you’ll be able to enjoy traveling off-road and up steep surfaces such as hills with relative ease. These new tires have different behavior on dirt, grass, or the road, which makes them difficult for enemies to pop.
Epic Games will also add more vehicle mods in Fortnite Season 6 soon, and those will have different effects on your vehicles. A few leakers have previously hinted at the future arrival of Mounted Guns in the game at some point.
We’ll keep checking for the locations of more garages that contain vehicle mods, and will update this guide as soon as we find them.
In the meanwhile, the v16.20 update has also brought new bows, and a Duos cup that you can participate in to unlock Aloy from Horizon Zero Dawn for completely free!

How to fix Fortnite “Cloud Download Failure” error
1. Check Fortnite’s servers
Sometimes, Fortnite’s “Cloud Download Failure” error pops up because the servers are down. When this happens, nothing can be done on your end, so you’ll simply have to wait for Epic Games to fix the issue.

Fortnite players are encountering a strange error that’s kicking them out of the game, so here’s how you can fix the ‘Profile Query Failed’ error on Xbox consoles and PC.
There is plenty of fun content to explore when you hop into a game of Fortnite, but a strange bug is preventing players from doing so. Many fans are reporting that they are unable to play because of an error message.
The “Profile Query Failed” error kicks players out of the game and sends them back to the login screen. This can be frustrating, but there are a few different methods to get around this problem.
How to fix “Profile Query Failed” error on Fortnite
The “Profile Query Failed” is mainly caused by server changes that prevent you from logging in to your Fortnite account. Once this happens, you won’t be able to join other players in an online match.
If you try quitting the game and then loading it up again, you’ll find yourself stuck on the loading screen. This issue is prevalent among PC and Xbox Fortnite players. Luckily, you can try to fix it in a few different ways.
Download the latest Fortnite update
You’ll need to install the latest Fortnite update from Epic in order to fix the “Profile Query Failed” error. You can get this done by accessing the Epic Games Launcher on your PC and selecting the update from there.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Open the Epic Games Launcher
- Select the Library tab from the left sidebar
- Select Fortnite
- Click on the cogwheel icon on the bottom right corner to open Settings
- Switch the Auto update option to ON
- Restart the Epic Games Launcher
Once this is done, Epic Games will download and install the latest update if has arrived. This is how you can download Fortnite updates on PC, but console players will have to try a different method.
Here’s how to download Fortnite updates on Xbox:
- Hold the Home button on your controller
- Select Games & Apps
- Go to Updates from the left sidebar
- Select Fortnite
- Press the Menu button and select Update
After that, the update will be in the queue, and you’ll have to wait a while for it to finish installing on your console.
Unlink your Google account from Epic Games
Having your Google account linked to Epic Games lets PC and PlayStation players log in to the game with great ease. However, this doesn’t always work on Xbox and it affects the cross-play functionality on that console.
You can unlink your other account from Epic by going to your account settings page on the Epic Games Launcher. Once that’s done, you can try logging in again to see if the problem resolved itself.

How to level up fast in Fortnite
We’ve found some of the best ways for you to level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 3 and claim all the rewards in the process.
Fortnite Chapter 3’s Season 1 Battle Pass offers 100 Tiers of exciting cosmetics, but getting through every level takes time and dedication. Luckily, we’ve got some top tips to help you level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 3.
You’ll need to hit at least level 100 if you want to unlock all of these skins and cosmetics, but it’ll take more than a few games to complete the Battle Pass. If you’re worried you won’t finish ahead of Season 2 or just want the skins as soon as possible, we have the fastest ways to level up in Fortnite Chapter 3.
- Complete Fortnite Weekly & Daily Quests
- Check off Fortnite Milestones
- Play Fortnite Creative Mode
- Score Victory Royale’s in Fortnite
- Buy Fortnite Battle Pass Tiers after level 7
Complete Fortnite Weekly & Daily Quests
Fortnite offers players Weekly and Daily Challenges to complete that offer a ton of Bonus XP.
The Daily Quests are much simpler, but not to be sniffed at. There will be three a day, and you’ll earn over 15,000 XP for each. This means that you can earn around 45,000 XP a day just for completing simple objectives such as opening chests in different locations.
Check off Fortnite Milestones
Most of these objectives will be completed naturally as you play, but check out the Quests Page to see all of your Milestones.
You’ll earn 8,000 XP for each completed Milestone, and another 20,000 XP for each ten. If you’re looking to level up quickly, make sure you’re checking off these Milestones as you play.
Play Fortnite Creative Mode
Jumping into Fortnite’s Creative Mode is always a great way to earn XP fast, as you’ll earn a huge chunk of XP every 15 minutes – no matter what you’re doing.
Players will earn 12,000 XP for every 15 minutes they spend in Creative Playlists, and it can be claimed up to five times. While you could earn XP by sitting idle, it’s worth looking out for the XP marker beside a Creative experience, as this means you’ll also earn XP as you play.
Score Victory Royale’s in Fortnite
One of the best ways to level up fast in Fortnite is simply winning matches. This won’t be easy for everyone, but consistently playing well will allow you to fly through the levels.
You’ll earn XP for eliminating players and surviving each Storm Circle, and then if you can pull off a Victory Royale, you’ll get a bonus 300 XP.
Buy Fortnite Battle Pass Tiers after level 7
If you’re someone who likes to buy Fortnite’s Tier Skip Battle Pass, you should hold off until you’ve hit level 7 in the free Battle Pass.
The amount of XP required to level up rises significantly after level 7, so purchasing the 25 Tier Skips after level 7 will give you the best value for money, allowing you to level up faster.
And those are the best ways to level up fast in Fortnite Chapter 3! You can also check out how to get the new Pizza Party item, and what it does.
