As the name suggests, Wings of Icarus gives you the ability to fly across the entire Fortnite map. To use it, simply equip the Wings from your inventory by pressing the respective number and the Left click your mouse to activate them. Then, you can use the following controls to take more actions and fly further:

Action input Description
Acceleration Left-Click/Left-Shift/L3/R2 Significantly increases your flying speed
Dive Bomb Space/X/A Deals massive damage to the target by performing a diving attack.
Dodge Left Q/L1 Block incoming attacks with a quick left turn
Dodge Right R/R1 Block incoming attacks with a quick turn to the right

Fresh Wings of Icarus (Wings of Icarus). has a load of 300 seconds and does not recharge over time. Once you travel with these wings, the challenge will be marked as completed and you will receive 10,000 XP for your efforts.

Meanwhile, if an opponent manages to shoot you, your character will fall to the ground and you will have to activate your wings again.

Wings of Icarus is an Epic Rarity item that can be easily found inside Underworld/ Olympus Chests, as part of the floor loot and can be purchased from certain NPCs (Skye and Marigold). Even though it’s a purple rarity, I never encountered any extraordinary challenges while finding these wings in Fortnite. However, I strongly recommend dropping in new POIs like The Underworld and Olympus where you’ll find a ton of special chests.

You have a higher chance of finding Wings of Icarus in these chests than in the normal ones that appear all over the Fortnite island. But be careful: these POIs are very popular this season and you will encounter many opponents who want to eliminate you, so make sure you have enough gear before you hunt for the Wings of Icarus.
