What is an ascender in Fortnite?

Wondering what an Ascender is in Fortnite? You’ll need to find one at Chonker’s Speedway and Command Cavern to complete a weekly quest, so here are the locations of these devices.

An Ascender is a vertical zip line that helps you climb up (or down) the side of a mountain or one of the Imagined Order Blimps that are located above POIs like The Daily Bugle or Tilted Towers.

To use them, simply approach the Ascender wire and press the interact button to zip up or down.

You need to use an Ascender at both Chonker’s Speedway and Covert Cavern to complete this quest, after which 20,000 XP will be added to your account
