Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 is a Greek Mythology-themed season that has brought several new exciting additions to the game. The new update has added several mythical additions to the game. These include new weapons such as the Thunderbolt of Zeus and even new effects like the Underworld Dash. 

The Underworld Dash is a special effect that allows you to dash quickly. The magical effect is also a part of the new quests accompanying this season. The Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2 battle pass contains several exciting new skins that allow you to cosplay as Greek Gods. One of the quickest ways to complete the battle pass is through the season quests. 

The season quests in Fortnite revolve around completing in-game tasks using items specific to the new season. Some of these tasks are quite challenging, making you challenge an Olympian Boss at the Altar. Others are relatively easy, like the quest involving the use of the Underworld Dash.

One of the season quests requires you to dash three times within ten seconds while affected by the Underworld Dash effect. This quest is fairly easy to complete and awards the player with 10,000 XP after doing so. Track the quest before entering into a game. This will make it significantly easier for you to fulfil the quest easily.

Tracking the quest will mark the newly added POI, River Styx, on your map. Making contact with the green water flowing in the river will affect you with Underworld Dash. You will know you have been affected after three green skulls start floating around your character. Underworld Dash will last for two minutes after the skulls appear.

To dash using the effect, you are simply required to double-jump. Press jump, and while you are still in the air, press the jump button again. This will cause your character to lunge forward with great speed. There is no cooldown period between the dashes.

Hence, you should be able to dash three times within the given time frame easily. Ensure that you jump again as soon as you touch the ground. It is a great tool to manoeuvre during the duel and cover distance quickly in Fortnite. Devs did a brilliant job by adding this unique feature as it brings a new flavour to the battle royale.
