Fortnite's Greek Mythology-themed Chapter 5 Season 2 is turning out to be one of the best Fortnite seasons ever. We've seen the addition of tons of weapons, cosmetics, and new points of interest, such as Mount Olympus, Underworld, and Grim Gate, to the map. However, one of the biggest additions to the game this season is “River Styx.” However, finding and acquiring its special effects can be challenging in Fortnite. But don't worry, we've got you covered! In this guide, we'll reveal how you find River Styx in Fortnite and get its awesome effects.

How Can You Find River Styx in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2?

The River Styx in Fortnite starts from the south of Rebel's Roost POI and wraps around the areas of Grim Gate and Underworld. You can easily identify the river from its iconic green color, which is quite different from the traditional blue colors seen with other water bodies on the game's map.

How Can You Use River Styx Effect in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2?

To get the River Styx effect, you must swim in the river. Once you've done that, you'll see three green skulls on your character, indicating that the effect is active. To use the effects,  jump twice in succession and go towards the direction you want to. You can only use the River Styx effect thrice, but you can replenish it instantly after dipping in the river again.

The River Styx effects work in a similar way to Zero Point Crystals, which were added in Chapter 2, Season 2. These allowed players to dash until the effect was completely worn out. However, Epic Games has taken a different approach with River Styx and limited the number of uses you can get from the special boost. You can make use of the River Styx’s special powers to close distances between opponents or even take down bosses like Cerberus by evading their attacks. 

This effect is also connected with the new 'Rise of Midas' quest, where players must damage opponents while under River Styx's effect. You can easily complete this challenge by doing 300 damage to enemies under River Styx's effect. This will give you 10,000 XP and allow you to level up your seasonal Battle Pass.

That's everything you need to know about finding and using the River Styx effect in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2. For more guides, check out how you can get Banana of the Gods in Fortnite
