If you are a fan of Fortnite and have purchased the $10 Battle Pass then you will be excited to know that the Fortnite Week 8 Challenges have been leaked ahead of their launch. If you are unaware of these challenges then you should know that Battle Pass owners get Weekly Challenges that they can complete over the period of the Battle Pass to earn cool new cosmetic items.
Currently, Season 3 is underway and this week we will be getting the Week 8 Challenges but somehow they were leaked early just like the last two weeks’ challenges. Here we have broken down the challenges for you and explained each challenge in detail about you can complete them in order to win level up and earn cool new stuff.
Fortnite Week 8 Challenges
Just like every week, Week 8 comes with seven new challenges for you to complete. They are similar to the old challenges including ones in which you have to open chests in a location or eliminating a fixed number of enemies in a certain location.
We have curated this Fortnite Week 8 Challenges Guide for you in which we have detailed all challenges and how you can complete them easily. This week’s challenges are detailed below:
- Use a Vending Machine (1).
- Deal damage with Explosive Weapons to opponents (500).
- Search chests in Snobby Shores (7).
- Visit different Taco Shops in a single match (3).
- Search between three boats (3).
- Assault Rifle eliminations (5).
- Eliminate opponents in Dusty Depot (3)
The first challenge of the game is fairly simple. The vending machines have been newly introduced in the game that allows you to buy weapons by putting in crafting materials. Simply collect enough materials and purchase anything from a vending machine to complete this challenge. Vending machines are scattered randomly across the entire map.
The second challenge could be simple or hard at the same time. Getting your hands on an explosive weapon is not easy but you can easily find grenades and remote bombs. The best way to complete this challenge is by a rocket launcher as it ensures at least a little damage if fired in the direction of the enemy.
Grenades and remote bombs have a very less splash damage area so they are harder to use. You can use grenades, remote bombs, guided missile launcher, rocket launcher or the new egg launcher to complete this challenge. Late game supply drops come with rocket launchers or you can even buy them from vending machines now. Deal 500 damage in total to complete this challenge.
The next challenge is to open 7 treasure chests in Snobby Shores. This could be a hard challenge because everyone would be aiming for Snobby Shores now and it was already a packed area.
Although the place has plenty of chests but now, more players will land here making it very difficult. Consider yourself lucky if you manage to open one chest here in a match. Open seven chests to complete this challenge.
The next challenge is to visit three different Taco Stores in the same match. This could be tricky because the taco stores are located far from each other. You can found Taco Shops in Tomato Town, West of Tilted Towers, Tilted Towers, South of Shifty Shafts and Retail Row. As you can see these are located pretty far off so this might take a few tries before you can complete them.
The next challenge is to search between three boats. This is one of those challenges where you need to be at the exact spot and collect the star. For this week, your challenge is to find the spot which is located exactly in the middle of three boats. Since the only place where the three boats could be found in Fortnite is in Loot Lake. The area in the middle of these boats is the lonely house standing on a tiny island.
Since the challenge has not started yet officially so we do not know where in the house the star is going to spawn. We will update the guide as soon as the challenges kick off and we are able to find out the exact location. So far, we know that the star will spawn somewhere near this house or maybe inside this house.
The next challenge wants you to eliminate five players with the assault rifle. Assault rifles are one of the most common weapons found in the game and they are also quite damaging. You can easily eliminate rifles even with the common assault rifle if your aim is good enough. You do not have to get 5 eliminations in the same match so this could be an easier challenge of this week.
The last challenge that you need to complete in this week’s challenge sheet is to eliminate three opponents in Dusty Depot. There is not much of loot found in Dusty Depot for a lot of people so we recommend that you land elsewhere and then come to Dusty Depot all geared up for takedowns later. Eliminate three players and this challenge will be yours.
This concludes our Fortnite Week 8 Challenges Guide. If you want to add anything to this guide, feel free to use the comments section below. Also, do not forget to check back the exact location of the star in the middle of Loot Lake when the challenges are officially revealed.
