Where to plant a seed on a heart-shaped island in Fortnite for Groot's Awakening Challenge

The first Groot Awakening challenge is your first step to earning the Rocket "Battle Brothers" emote. Fortnite season 4 is offering up a bunch of Marvel characters as skins in the battle pass (like Wolverine and She-Hulk), but to get their special emotes and superhero skins, you'll need to complete each character's Awakening Challenge.

For Groot's first challenge, you need to find where to plant a seed on a heart-shaped island. Here's exactly how to do that.

The heart-shaped island you need to visit is located on the west side of the Fortnite map, as highlighted in the map above with my camera icon.

Here's what the heart-shaped island actually looks like. It's not all that big, and it's easy to miss, but you'll find it among the other small islands/rocks on the coast west/southwest of Sweaty Sands.

Once you're on the heart-shaped island, you should see an interact prompt at the center of that dirt circle. Interacting with it plants a seed, obviously.

As far as challenges go, this is a pretty simple one. Next up on the Groot Awakening Challenge list is to emote at a friendship monument.

Every Marvel character in the season 4 battle pass has their own Awakening Challenge list. You can also find Baby Groot hidden on the Fortnite map and turn him into a rare back bling cosmetic item.

Epic also recently added the Panther's Prowl location, based on the incredibly popular Black Panther, and fans have turned it into a memorial to pay tribute to the late actor Chadwick Boseman.
