The Fortnite Battle Royale challenges for Week 8 of Season 7 are now available and one requires players to search through Chests at Shifty Shafts and Lonely Lodge.

Since the challenge requires seven Chests to be opened but does not specify how many need to be opened at each location, players are free to choose to either open them all at one location or split them between the two.

The objective is quite straightforward but can be time consuming as players will often have to load into multiple matches in order to be able to open the total number of Chests.

In order to help speed up this process, we have provided maps that show all of the possible spawn points for Chests at both Shifty Shafts and Lonely Lodge.

This will help players know exactly where to go once they land at either location and not waste time randomly going around and looking for Chests.

The map above shows all 12 possible Chest spawns at Shift Shafts. Seven of these points are located in the mines themselves while the other five are sprinkled around the immediate surrounding areas.

Below is a map of all of Lonely Lodge’s 12 Chest spawns. Seeing as both locations have the same number of spawn points, it’s pretty much a flip of the coin at to which one is better for this challenge.

Keep in mind that the markers shown above are only possible spawn points for Chests; not every Chests is guaranteed to spawn in every match.

Players who are attempting to complete this challenge should also make sure to get eliminated, either by an opponent or themselves, before leaving the match. Leaving straight away without getting eliminated can often cause progress made during that match to be lost.

Searching through seven Chests is one of several challenges available this week. For more details on the full list of challenges, visit our comprehensive guide for how to complete all of the Week 8, Season 7 challenges

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.

With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.

As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points

  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
