Fortnite’s Season 8 Week 7 challenges require players to traverse across the map and head to a number of different locations, including three Pirate Camps that must be visited in a singled match. If you’re trying to complete this challenge as quickly as possible, here’s a guide to hit all three.

The new set of weekly challenges come on the back of the Fortnite V8.30 update, which finally added the new Respawn Van, alongside a number of technical changes that aim to improve the quality of the game for players.

Anyone who completes the Fortnite Season 8 Week 7 challenges will receive a special loading screen to help complete the Discovery challenges, but players must finish the seven weekly challenges first – including this one that sees players visit three Pirate Camps in a single match.

Fortnite fans will have to visit three Pirate Camps in one match.

Where are the Pirate Camps in Fortnite?

Pirate Camps were introduced to Fortnite at the start of Season 8, as part of the theme for the season which heavily involves Pirates. Alongside the camps, a new named location was also added, as Lazy Lagoon in the north of the island is home to a massive pirate ship.

There seven total Pirate Camps situated on the Fortnite map. The majority of them are in the north of the map, but there are a couple down towards Fatal Fields and Paradise Palms as well. You can view a map of all the Pirate Camps below.

What is the fastest way to complete this challenge?

This challenge must be completed in a single match, so time is of the essence, as you will want to hit all three before they move out of the circle, or before you get eliminated by enemies.

There are a number of different ways to complete this challenge, but gauging the distance and terrain between each camp is important, so we’ve come up with what we believe is the quickest route to hitting all three Pirate Camps in one match.

Here is the quickest route to hitting all three Pirate Camps.

Starting at the Pirate Camp closest to Polar Peak, cut through Tilted Towers towards Loot Lake, and once you’ve hit the one sitting on the hill, it’s a straight line to the third and final outpost.

Step-by-step guide to completing the ‘Visit three pirate camps in a single match’ challenge.

  1. Visit the Pirate Camp north of Polar Peak
  2. Cut across Tilted Towers, around the bottom of Loot Lake towards the second Pirate Camp.
  3. Head directly south toward Fatal Fields and visit the third and final Pirate Camp. 

The use of vehicles will also speed this challenge, but if those are not available, players can run from all three of these points in just over three-and-a-half minutes.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
