Fortnite Buccaneer's Bounty Challenges [Last Chance]: Pirate Camps, Search Buried Treasure, And More
Here's what you can earn during Fortnite's new limited-time event.
Update: It's your last chance to complete the Buccaneer's Bounty challenges in Fortnite, as the limited-time event is scheduled to end today, April 15. Each task you complete will earn you a special pirate-themed reward, and if you clear all four of them before the event ends, you'll receive an Epic-tier emote. You can see the full list of challenges and rewards below. The original story follows.
Fortnite's 8.30 update is now live across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. Not only did the latest patch introduce Reboot Vans to the battle royale game, it also marked the start of a new limited-time event called Buccaneer's Bounty, which features its own unique set of challenges and rewards. However, your time to complete these challenges is running out.
Buccaneer's Bounty runs until April 15. Each day of the event, Epic is featuring a different limited-time mode, and there will be a new challenge to complete and cosmetic reward to unlock. If you manage to complete all four of the Buccaneer's Bounty challenges before the event ends, you'll also earn a special reward: an Epic-tier emote.
The first Buccaneer's Bounty challenge is fairly straightforward: visit a Pirate Camp in different matches. You'll need to travel to 10 of these camps to complete the mission. Fortunately, the Pirate Camps are always located in the same spots, so with a little persistence you should be able to complete this challenge without too much difficulty. Be sure to check out our Pirate Camp location guide if you need help finding them.
The second challenge is likewise self-explanatory: search one Buried Treasure. Once that's completed, you'll unlock a special Pirate Parrot spray. For the third challenge, all you need to do is place in the top 10 in Squads and you'll earn an uncommon banner. Last but not least, you'll need to fire yourself out of five Pirate Cannons in different matches to earn 1,000 XP. You can see all of the Buccaneer's Bounty challenges so far below.

In addition to the Buccaneer's Bounty challenges, Week 7's challenges are also now live. This week's tasks run the gamut from visiting three Pirate Camps in a single match to eliminating opponents in named locations and searching chests at Loot Lake or Snobby Shores. Once those are completed, you'll be another step closer to unlocking the Legendary Ruin skin in Week 8.
