Data miners have revealed the challenges for week 3 of Fortnite season 8 – here is all you need to know.

Players are busying levelling up their Battle Pass with the week two challenges that were released on Thursday.


These included more difficult challenges such as dealing damage to players with a pirate cannon as well as dealing damage to falling supply drops. If you’re yet to complete your week two challenges – you can follow our guide here.

INVERSEPlayers were tasked with dealing damage using cannons in the week two challenges.

If you’ve completed all your week two challenges, you can search for the secret Fortnite banner instead of an extra Battle Star. We’ve found the exact location so you don’t have to waste your time exploring the map.


Looking ahead to next week, data miner @Lucas7Yoshi has uncovered the next set of challenges that players will be faced with in week three.

Free Challenges

  • Stage 1: Deal damage to opposing players while riding a zip line
    Stage 2: Deal damage to opposing players who are riding a zip line
  • Get an elimination with an SMG, pistol, and a Sniper Rifle
  • Search chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields

Battle Pass Challenges

  • Search where the magnifying glass sits on the Treasure Map loading screen
  • Use The Baller in different matches
  • Place different trap slot items in a single match
  • Stage 1: Visit Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match
    Stage 2: Visit Haunted Hills and Tilted Towers in a single match
    Stage 3: Visit Frosty Flights and Loot Lake in a single match
    Stage 4: Visit Lucky Landing and Retail Row in a single match
    Stage 5: Visit Snobby Shores and Tomato Temple in a single match

Season 8 Week 3 challenges are expected to go live on Thursday, March 14 but changes could still be made.

Once again players will have to travel far and wide to complete their challenges meaning hoverboards and quadcrashers will be extremely handy.

Challenges require players to use ‘The Baller’ which has been confirmed to not be an emote, suggesting the rumored hamster ball mobility item could be introduced in the next update.

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.
