A very early leak of the Week 8 challenges in Fortnite Season 5 has surfaced online, thanks to data miners digging through the game files.

Despite Epic Games’ best efforts to discourage them, data miners have been hard at work uncovering every possible secret they can following the big v5.30 update for the battle royale game.


The week 7 challenges have been delayed until Friday, August 24, but these were already leaked earlier in the week.

And now, in an incredibly early release, a leak courtesy of FNLeak shows all the challenges for the following week, week 8.


Just like previous weeks, there are three free challenges available to all users, and then four challenges exclusive for battle pass owners.

Free Challenges

  • Place Traps (10)
  • Search Chests in Wailing Woods (7)
  • Shotgun Eliminations (4)

Battle Pass Challenges

  • Deal Damage with a PIckaxe to Opponents (250)
  • Use a Rift at different Rift spawn locations (10)
  • Search between three oversized seats (HARD) (1)
  • Stage 1: Eliminate an Opponent in Greasy Grove (HARD) (1)

The final challenge has three stages, first Greasy Grove, then Lonely Lodge, then Fatal Fields.

Since we are still a week out from when these challenges will be expected to go live, it is possible that Epic makes some adjustments to these.

And of course, there is still all of week 7’s challenges to get through first which you can find here.


There has been no shortage of leaks following the v5.30 update, including the new ‘Shockwave Grenade’, new emotes, and the first footage of the new ‘Rift-to-go’ item.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
