How to fall five stories in 'Fortnite'.

If you want to fall five stories in Fortnite and not take damage, you’ll need to head over to Mega City and make use of the air vents located on the roof of skyscrapers. After walking into one of these air vents, you’ll be propelled skyward and, most importantly, all fall damage will be negated until you touch the ground.

Alternatively, you can use a Grind Rail, which also negates fall damage and makes it easy to complete the Purradise Meowscles quest.

Keep in mind that Mega City is still one of the most popular locations in Fortnite. That means you’ll be fending off several other players as you try to complete this challenge. Consider stocking up on powerful weapons and loading up your Shields before heading to the location.

Once in Mega City, Grind Rails can easily be spotted winding through the tall buildings. You can ride these skyward until you’re five stories in the air, or you can use one of the many rappel lines connected to the top of buildings to quickly gain ground.

You’re fairly exposed while using Grind Rails or on rooftops, so keep your eyes peeled for enemy snipers that might be hidden on top of other buildings (or the hills surrounding Mega City). As soon as you see an air vent or Grind Rail, jump into it and maneuver your character so they fall down to the ground — which should complete the achievement.

Other ways to complete this challenge include using the Kinetic Blade to negate fall damage or the ODM gear to propel yourself towards the sky. You can also jump into water from a tall building (like the Citadel), as landing in water won’t cause any damage.
