The first thing you’ll need to do in order to raise the Disco Ball near Loot Lake in Fortnite is put together a squad of four with yourself and three other players. Once you’ve assembled your team, head out to Loot Lake. There, you’ll want to look around until you spot a building on a dock located at the west end of the lake.

Head inside this building and you’ll come across the Disco Ball. Next, in each of the four corners of the building are platforms. You and your three other squad members will each need to stand on a platform. Once on the platforms, all four of you will need to perform a Fortnite dance emote to get your platforms to light up. Keep dancing and the Disco Ball will rise to the top of the room.

When it reaches the top, it will explode and drop back down marking the task complete. After that, simply finish the match to earn your five Battle Stars. Note that the Disco Ball challenge can only be completed with other players. If you don’t have three friends handy, you can complete the Disco Ball challenge in Solo Mode. However, you’ll need to convince three other strangers to boogie down with you in order to raise the Disco Ball.
