How to perform an Uppercut then land with an Air Punch with Nitro Fists in Fortnite Chapter 5 season 3

It's punching time.

One of the Fortnite Chapter Five season three quests requires players to get familiar with Nitro Fists, asking you to perform an Uppercut and then land with an Air Punch. This combo sounds easy, but completing the quest can be slightly more challenging.

Nitro Fists is a new weapon in Fortnite Chapter Five season three, and it’s a powerful tool on the field. Using it is also quite fun since you can perform different moves to assemble combos, and there are even quests that lead you to experiment with these mechanics.

To perform an Uppercut then land with an Air Punch using a Nitro Fist in Fortnite Chapter Five season three, you need to:

  • Get Nitro Fists as ground loot or in chests in Fortnite and then equip it.
  • Perform an Uppercut with Right Click on PC, L2 on PlayStation, or LT on Xbox, sending you into the air.
  • Whilst flying, use (In Air) Air Punch with Left Click on PC, R2 on PlayStation, or RT on Xbox, as you start descending.
  • The Air Punch causes the landing effect as you hit the ground.

If you’re on mobile, the hotkeys for this combo will be different for you. To learn your respective hotkeys, check the left corner of your screen after equipping Nitro Fists. You can also revert to this video demonstration of the Nitro Fist combo if you can’t perform it in the game.

For me, finding Nitro Fists was the harder part of the quest since the Uppercut and Air Punch combo is easy to perform once you get a hang of the item. I found my Nitro Fists inside the Nitrodrome, where there was a lot of competition. Since Nitro Fists is new, many players are searching for it in the game, so it might take a few matches to get one and use it in a safe place.
