What is an Ascender in Fortnite?

by Aidan O'Brien

New challenges in Fortnite might just be introducing many players out there to a word they haven’t encountered. For one of the challenges, players will need to use an Ascender at Chonker’s Speedway or the Command Cavern.

Ascenders are long ropes that players can interact with the travel straight up in the air. They can be found at all the IO Airships in the game, including the one at the Command Cavern. In the real world, they are commonly used by mountain climbers to help safely ascend and descend mountains.

Finding an Ascender at Chonker’s Speedway is a little more awkward. If you travel around to the north side of the track, you will find one near a tall rock face.
