Fortnite Season 8 Guide To Giant Faces In Desert, Jungle, And Snow Locations (Season 8, Week 1)

(Giant) Face it.


Fortnite Season 8, Week 1's challenges are now live--as is the big 8.0 update. This first new batch include a couple that could prove tricky, primarily because Season 8's world event has made some big changes to the map and added new areas that players will not be intimately familiar with. The first of these difficult challenges is available to everyone, regardless of having purchased the Battle Pass, and asks players to visit the new Pirate Camps. In this guide, we're looking at a challenge that is exclusive to the paid Battle Pass and involves visiting three giant faces that are hidden around the map. Here's where to find them.

Specifically, these giant faces can be found in the desert, the jungle, and the snow. Now, the areas of the map these correspond to are fairly obvious, given that the Fortnite island is split up into distinct biomes. However, each of these locations are pretty big, so you could end up aimlessly running around looking for them. Fear not! We've done the challenge and have put together a map that shows you exactly where to go. Take a look at it below. Remember that you don't have to do anything special when you get there; simply gaze in wonder at it for a brief moment and then move on.

If you haven't already seen them, make sure to read the Fortnite update 8.0's full patch notes. This has all the information you need on the new weapon that has been added as well as those that have been vaulted. There's also details on the limited time modes and a new feature that lets players group up with friends to complete challenges together.

We also have a Battle Pass explainer, if you need a bit more information on how you can unlock the skins and other cosmetics. You can also take a look at the cool new skins for Season 8, as well as all the other cosmetics in our Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass cosmetics gallery. Of course, all of these rewards are the primary motivation for completing challenges; doing them allows you to level up more quickly and get your hands on these various items. You can also earn V-Bucks, and if you play enough, it's possible that you can obtain enough by playing in order to buy the inevitable Season 9 Battle Pass.
