Fortnite players looking to complete the Week 4, Season 8 challenges are going to have to search for some buried treasure across the battle royale map. Here’s how you can do it. 

The fourth set of tasks, which were revealed on March 21, is a continuation of the pirate theme that has made its mark on the Fortnite map since the season began on February 28. 

Players will need to find maps, locate and dig up two treasure chests for the Week 4 challenges, so we thought we should put together a quick and easy guide to help you complete this part as quick as possible.

Find a Buried Treasure item

There are tons of Buried Treasure items found across the Fortnite Battle Royale map and, for those who don’t know already, once you’ve got one in-hand, it will lead you to the location of your first treasure. Of course, with this week’s challenges you’re going to have to do this twice. 

These can be found all over the map, but it could be a good idea to head over the pirate themed areas first as a starting point – such as the Pirate Camp outposts.

Locate the Buried Treasure

Once you’ve found a Buried Treasure map, it’s just a case of making your way over to the location that it directs you to in order to collect your loot. 

The good thing about this challenge, in particular, is that the loot you will find inside the treasure chest is guaranteed to include four of Legendary rarity, which should set you up for a promising game ahead.

Anyway, the map will highlight the location you need to visit with a gold beam of light in the distance when you activate the map – which can be done by clicking the right trigger on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 platform, or whichever key you’ve assigned to it for PC players. 

Be careful not to run into danger on your travels to the chest, though. You could be eliminated in the process.

Dig up the Buried Treasure

If you have found the right spot and have no idea how to dig up the treasure, it’s really quite easy. 

Simply select the pickaxe tool in your inventory and start hitting the giant ‘X’ on the ground. Once this has been done twice, you can move on to completing the other Fortnite Week 4, Season 8 challenges, which is the first time the new Baller vehicle has been included. 

Best of luck! 


SypherPK reveals tips on how to master Fortnite Zero Point Crystals

Fortnite Season 5 now has a new teleporting feature thanks to the new Zero Point Crystals, and SypherPK has shared some must-know tips to help you master it.

As one of the most popular Fortnite content creators, many players look to SypherPK to offer advice and tips on how to master Epic’s online multiplayer battle royale – and he’s delivered once again with advice on making the most of the new teleport ability.

One of the biggest map changes in the game’s Season 5 update was the introduction of a new crystalline sands area right in the middle of the action. As well as letting players sink and hide, the area brings a new item called Zero Point Crystals.

During his December 3 video, SypherPK argued that “everyone is sleeping on the Zero Point Crystals” and offered up several reasons why they can actually be one of the most useful items to collect in Fortnite Season 5.

He explained that if you destroy crystals near the Zero Point and consume the small parts that scatter, you can perform a crystal-dash that lets you effectively teleport a short distance in any direction – even upwards if you need to get some height.

The crystal-dash is performed by double jumping and facing the direction you want to travel. Once you’ve consumed a crystal, you’ll have the ability for 30 seconds. It might seem like a small thing, but it could be a game-changer for getting out of tricky situations.

“If you really master the movement of the crystals, you can be very difficult to pin down and you don’t even have to build,” SypherPK explains in his video. “You can just be constantly flying around your opponent.”

While you can’t use the crystal-dash to move through solid surfaces or buildings, SypherPK discovered an exploit that lets you teleport through even a tiny gap in another player’s builds and dive into their box. It’s tricky to pull off, but rewarding when it works.

“You just fly into their builds, and once you get the timing right, it’s actually not that hard to repeat over and over,” he said. “You just gotta get the timing right.”
