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. 

Here is a video, courtesy of YouTuber JoeMD, which shows the player going around the two locations and visiting Chests.

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


How to get Hop Rock Dualies exotic weapon in Fortnite: new location

Epic Games has thrown Fortnite players for a bit of a loop and changed the location of one of the most coveted Exotic weapons in the game right now: the Hop Rock Dualies. Here’s where you can find it after February 24, 2021.

The Hop Rock Dualies are one of the most powerful Exotic-rarity weapons in the game right now and for good reason. Not only are they incredibly powerful pistols that, essentially, fire in a two-round burst, but they also give the player a low gravity effect, allowing them to glide through the air like an action star.

While they were previously available via the NPC named Cole, who was found near Retail Row and Catty Corner, Epic Games has now switched up who sells the Hop Rock Dualies, just a few weeks before Season 6 launches.

The Hop Rock Dualies can now be found with Deadfire, near the center of the map.

This time around, the Hop Rock Dualies can be found with the NPC named Deadfire, the cowboy-type character added during the game’s Season 5 launch back in December.

Luckily, Deadfire can only spawn on one place on the map as of the time as of this writing: in the Sheriff’s office near the center of the map. This means that, unlike last time, players don’t have to roll the dice landing at one spot, hoping the NPC will spawn there.

Interestingly, he hasn’t moved locations since his inclusion at the start of the season, meaning if you know where he was located before, you’ll already know where to find the Hop Rock Dualies.

That being said, if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies in Fortnite, here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Head to the Sheriff’s Office near the center of the map (it’ll be the old run down building between Colossal Coliseum and the Zero Point portal).
  2. Once there, head to the first floor and find Deadfire.
  3. Speak to them and select the Hop Rock Dualies option.
  4. Click again to confirm the purchase.

Like before, the Hop Rock Dualies will cost players 500 Gold.

How much do the Hop Rock Dualies cost?

Just like before, you’ll need to make sure you’re loaded with 500 Gold Bars if you want to get your hands on the Hop Rock Dualies. That’s not an easy amount to come by, so check out our guide for making money in Fortnite if you’re short.

The Hop Rock Dualies weapon includes two pistols, making it the perfect choice for gunslingers. They use medium bullets, deal 43 damage to players, and have a magazine size of 18 with a reload time of 2.7 seconds.
