The perk will surely sound great to players but the process can be a little challenging. The first thing that players should seek out is a lighting storm.

When you find the location, walk right into it and stand beneath the dark stormy clouds. This is the only way your chances of getting struck by lightning will rise. Also, tornadoes are a separate type of weather disaster in the game and will not conflict with the lighting, so don’t be alarmed.

The best way to increase your chances of getting struck is to look for the areas that glow in blue. They mark the spots that will get struck with lighting within a few moments. When you find one, run towards it and stand right at the centre of the glowing blue spot.

Another way you can increase your chances of getting struck by lighting is by going into a water body. If you see a cloudy storm form around a place with a water body, being in the water will provide you with a higher chance of getting stuck in Fortnite Chapter 3.
