Fortnite Season 8 Challenges Guide: Flaming Hoops, Junk Junction Treasure Map Signpost, And More

Comments

Back on the grind with Week 4.

Challenges in Fortnite continue to roll weekly, and they provide you with the fastest way to get yourself a whole bunch of cool new skins and rewards. Season 8 introduces some major changes to the game--including big overhauls to the map--but the way challenges work is not massively different. As is the case almost every week, the latest adjustments come from the new patch, content update 8.51, which adds the new Shadow Bomb.

Week 10 challenges are now available, and whereas the previous weeks had been exceedingly straightforward, this batch actually includes a few you might need a guide for. That includes using cannons to launch yourself through Flaming Hoops and also searching for treasure.

Weekly challenges are intricately linked to the Battle Pass and the cosmetics that become available through that. (Daily challenges are also available outside of the Battle Pass.) Completing challenges awards a player with Battle Stars, which in turn level up the pass and push it through higher tiers. As it ascends through the tiers, more cosmetic unlocks become available to a player. When you complete all of the challenges from a given week, you'll complete a corresponding Discovery challenge, similar to the Snowfall challenges from the previous season. Discovery challenges offers additional rewards and, after doing enough, a special skin that will be revealed later in the season.

Season 8 has a brand-new Battle Pass, which is available for 950 V-Bucks (1,000 V-Bucks are available for roughly $10/£10 in the in-game store). The Battle Pass has over 100 tiers, which means there's over 100 cosmetics to be unlocked. You can see of them in our Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass unlocks gallery. You'll get two of the coolest skins--Blackheart and Hybrid--for simply purchasing the Battle Pass. These two particular skins evolve as you accrue experience and level them up. You can see all the new Fortnite Season 8 skins here.

There is one significant change of note regarding challenges with the Season 8 patch. Aside from the challenges screen getting a bit of a makeover, Epic has introduced something called Party Assist. This feature allows you and friends in your party to collaboratively work toward making progress on a challenge together. It doesn't let you share progress with random players it adds to your squad, and it doesn't work at all in larger team modes like Team Rumble, but it should nonetheless making it easier to complete challenges.

Every week, Epic Games will refresh the challenges, so you'll need to keep coming back to get the necessary Battle Stars needed to upgrade the pass and unlock items. We'll be regularly updating this article with the challenges as they become available. Additionally, any guides that we create to help players complete the challenges will be found here, so think of this article as your Fortnite Season 8 challenges super-guide.
