Rock out at these jam locations!

For the next few weeks, we’re going to be rockin’ and rollin’ around Fortnite with the Metallica event. During this event, music is all around us. We can even jam out at Jam Statue locations around the map. You’ll want to head to these locations to complete your Metallica quests, so here’s where to start.

Where to Jam at a Jam Statue in Fortnite

We’ve started a jam before in past weekly quests, but this time, we’ll need to do it at particular locations — Jam Statues. These statues will allow us to start up a jam instantly, and while inside the jam radius, we’ll activate an Encore Session.

Before we can start jamming out, we’ll need to locate all the Jam Statue locations, so here’s where to look:

There are four at Named Locations, and the rest are in slightly more obscure locations in The Wasteland.

  • The Underworld
  • Lavish Lair
  • Mount Olympus
  • Pleasant Piazza
  • Northeast of Brutal Beachhead
  • Megalo Depot – East of Brutual Beachhead
  • Pea Bois HQ – Northwest of Redline Rig

Once you get to those locations, look for the musical note icon on your minimap and overtop of the actual statue itself. It’ll be hard to miss them. These statues are guitars, speakers, and drums on a pedestal with a fire symbol behind them and surrounded by a rainbow-colored jam square.

How to Start an Encore Session

When you find it, you can work on completing your quest: “jam at a jam statue for 5 seconds to start an encore session.” To do this, approach the Jam Statue and press the usual emote button (D-Pad Down on Consoles or B on PC).

While you’re pressing the emote button, select any of the jam songs that show up in your emote wheel. It won’t matter what instrument you select; any of them work. If you have some friends playing with you, you can all join the jam at once and play different instruments, but be careful with any enemies lurking around who might interrupt.

Once you start jamming, wait for five seconds, and an Encore Session will activate. You’ll automatically complete your quest here and move on to the next step!
