The Tanks in Fortnite are extremely bulky and slow vehicles, so it's hard to imagine getting any serious air time with one.

- Don't forget to complete the Fortnite Covert Ops Quests before time runs out.
How To Get Air Time In A Tank
Fortnite Tanks are monstrous vehicles weighing hundreds of thousands of kilograms. While these beasts certainly pack a punch, they're not very nimble. So, how can you possibly get air time with such a machine?
Well, the key is Chonkers, aka Off-Road Tires. Toss this Vehicle Mod on the ground and they will transform into a bouncy set of tires. These piles of tires will send players and vehicles flying upon impact. Run over a stack of Off-Road Tires with a Tank to go soaring into the sky and get air time.
Air Time In A Tank: Where To Find Chonkers/Off-Road Tires
For the most part, Off-Road Tires are primarily available at Fortnite Gas Stations. However, there are other spots where Chonkers are prevalent, like Mighty Monument and Chonker's Speedway.
Keep in mind that destroying a stack of tires has a 50% chance of spawning a set of Off-Road Tires.
Air Time In A Tank: Where To Find Tanks
Fortnite Tanks spawn at all the major points of contention in the ongoing war between The Seven and the Imagined Order (IO). Tanks will have different appearances based on which faction controls the point of interest (POI) it spawns at, but they all function the same.
Look for Tanks at the following locations:
- Command Cavern
- The Fortress
- The Daily Bugle
- Fortnite Tilted Towers
- Coney Crossroads
- Rocky Reels
- Condo Canyon
Command Cavern houses two Tanks, while the rest of these locations have just one Tank in their vicinity.
There are only a handful of Tanks available on the Island, so make sure to secure one early in a match before IO Guards or enemy players lay claim to it.
Air Time In A Tank Tips
Wondering the best strategy for getting started on this Week 6 Seasonal Quest?
If you're looking for efficiency, we have the method for you. Begin a match and land at the gas station beside The Fortress POI. Search the gas station and destroy existing stacks of tires until you get a set of Off-Road Tires.
Next, navigate toward the west side of The Fortress drill where the Tank spawns. Toss the Chonkers on the ground beneath the ramp and then commandeer the Tank. Finally, take the Tank down the ramp and drive slowly over the tire stack to get air time.
Continue to use the stack of Chonkers to bounce the Tank in the air until you get three total seconds of air time.
Getting air time in a Tank is tricky, but if you can manage it, a reward of 30k XP toward your Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass and Season Level will be yours.
