[Last Chance] Fortnite High Stakes Challenges Now Live With New Rewards
Update: Fortnite's High Stake challenges are almost up. The special tasks will only be available until Tuesday, March 19, making this your last opportunity to complete them and unlock all of the new and returning High Stakes rewards. The original story follows.
Week 3 of Fortnite: Battle Royale's Season 8 is officially underway, and a new assortment of challenges are now available to complete on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. But that's not all for those who want special objectives to complete outside of winning matches. With the most recent update have brought back the Getaway limited-time mode earlier this week, Epic has brought back the related High Stakes challenges from Season 5, along with a couple of new rewards to unlock. Here's what's in store.
The High Stakes challenges all tie in to the aforementioned Getaway LTM, which returned as part of Fortnite's 8.10 patch. Getaway is a heist-themed mode that divides players up into teams of four and tasks them with finding safes scattered around the island, extracting the llama-shaped jewel stored inside, and making it safely to the getaway van.
The challenges are all fairly straightforward, ranging from playing a certain number of Getaway matches to picking up a jewel and using Grapplers. If you missed out on the event back in Season 5, you'll have another chance to unlock all of the previous rewards, as well as new color variations of the Crystal Llama back bling. You can see the full list of High Stakes challenges below.

The High Stakes challenges will only be around until Tuesday, March 19, so you only have a limited time to complete the tasks and unlock their rewards. To go along with the challenges, the Wild Card skin and a new Wild Card wrap bundle are up for purchase in Fortnite's in-game store.
