Fortnite Season 8, Week 1 Challenges

Fortnite Season 8 has finally arrived. That means new items, new locations, and new weekly challenges to complete. This is a complete guide on getting all of the challenges done as quickly as possible. We’ve provided detailed instructions, maps, and in-game screenshots below. Let’s get started.

Free Challenges

This challenge requires you to visit all pirate camps that were added in Season 8. We’ve made a separate post with a pirate camp location map, including in-game screenshots.

Search Chests at Retail Row or Junk Junction (0/7)

A self-explanatory challenge that will take some time to complete. Expect these locations to be white hot for the next week or so. We recommend completing this challenge in the ‘Team Rumble’ LTM for maximum speed.

Stage 1 of 3 – Deal damage with a Shotgun and an Explosive Weapon in a single match

The shotgun part will be easy, but for the explosives section you’ll need to damage an opponent using a…

  • Clinger Grenade
  • Rocket Launcher (no longer found in chests, available in Supply Drops only)
  • Grenade Launcher
  • Cannon (NEW for Season 8)
  • Dynamite

This is a three-stage challenge, the second and third stages have similar requirements.

Battle Pass Challenges

Visit a giant face in the desert, the jungle, and the snow (0/3)

Another challenge that requires extensive searching, luckily we’ve compiled a post on exactly where to find all three faces. Complete with a map and in-game screenshots showing exact locations.

Use a Volcano Vent in different matches (0/5)

Epic removed planes in Season 8, to fill their void they have added two new methods of transportation. One of them being Volcano Vents. Volcano vents can be found in various locations around the map and this challenge can be completed passively as you complete the others.

Get an elimination with a Shotgun, Assault Rifle, and Explosive Weapon (0/3)

Another self-explanatory challenge, you can complete this passively while playing the game. We recommend competing in the ‘Team Rumble’ LTM to complete this and many of the other challenges this week. This is a three-stage challenge.

Deal Damage to a vehicle driven by an opponent (0/200)

In Season 7, this was one of the easiest challenges to complete due to planes. Several of the transportation methods (planes, ATK’s, shopping carts) have been removed from the game. Look for an enemy riding a Driftboard or Quad-Crasher to complete this challenge.
