How to eliminate Cube Monsters with melee weapons in Fortnite
First, gamers need to find Dire on the map (he is located at Camp Cod) and then talk to him to start completing the challenges. They are not very difficult and involve using emotes, harvesting wildlife and destroying a dumpster. Once the player reaches the fourth stage, they can go ahead and attempt to eliminate a cube monster with a melee weapon (your harvesting tool) while in the Sideways.
Finding the big Sideways spot in a match isn’t difficult, because it is clearly marked on the map. However, the big one will have a lot of players and can be dangerous. Instead, gamers should try to locate the smaller Sideways locations on the map that ‘portal’ them to the other dimension. Once there, they must hack down five Sideways monsters to complete the quest. Once this task is completed, users can complete the last quest and gain a total of 1,50,000 XP, a massive number to be gained in the game.
