fortnite Season 7, Week 1 kicks off with a new alien theme to keep things interesting. Simultaneously, Epic Games implemented a new set of challenges, and for the most part, they are relatively simple. The only ones that can cause you some trouble are you need to visit specific areas around the map. One in particular is meant to accept a search from a payphone, and while they aren’t difficult to find, if you’re not sure what to look for, you may have some trouble.
In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about completing this challenge as part of Season 7, Week 1. Here’s How to Accept a Search From a Payphone fortnite.

Payphones appear at fixed locations around the map and are mostly scattered outwardly. For help locating them, please refer to the map above (credits to Fortnite.gg). Which one you want to visit should depend on the trajectory of the battle bus at the start of the match. Ideally, if you’re worried about another enemy player coming across you, you should choose one that’s a little off.
If an opponent joins you, they can take you out before you get to the payphone, which means you’ll have to try again in a different match. So, pick someone who is out of the way, and communicate with your team so they can watch your back as you make your way to the payphone. Keep in mind that this can be done in any Battle Royale mode or Team Rumble. If you get stuck, we recommend trying out Team Rumble because if you drop out you can start all over again, which will make it easier to try again.
Once you’ve got the payphone, the hard part is over. At this point, all you have to do is interact with the payphone by pressing Class on playstation, x on Xbox, or u on the Nintendo Switch, and you’ll be prompted to accept a quest. Choose thumbs up option, and you will start the quest and complete the challenge. Note that you don’t need to actually complete the quest offered by Payphone – just starting it will get you credit for this week’s challenge.
Now, you can choose to complete the quest anyway, because you’ll get some gold bars for doing so, but you don’t have to. After accepting the quest, you’ll complete the weekly challenge and earn 30,000 XP for your Battle Pass. Since it can be quickly eliminated, we do not recommend skipping it.
