How to solve Fortnite’s Encrypted Cipher Quests and what they mean

Unlike Unencrypted missions that are easy to understand, Fortnite’s Encrypted Cipher Quests have “ambiguous” descriptions. These unclear goals will give players some hints on how to finish them, so players will have to figure out what the Quest wants them to do.

A new Encrypted Quest will appear every day until March 7, and they will stay until March 10, giving players enough time to complete the three required to get the extra reward. Keep an eye out for updates on each of the steps as they come out.
