UPDATE – December 26, 2018 (1pm EST)

Hours after the Day 8 challenge went live, Epic Games announced that the ‘Take the Elf’ emote had been delayed until 2019 for most players.

With Christmas over, it’s time to refocus on the 14 Days of Fortnite challenges, and day 8 is already upon us – tasking you to ‘damage opponents with different weapons.’

There’s been some difficult tasks so far in 14 Days of Fortnite, such as flying planes through golden rings, or collecting goose eggs from nests hidden around the waterside on the map.

If you still need to complete those challenges, or any others from the first half of 14 Days of Fortnite, be sure to check out our full challenge guide here.


Thankfully, the Day 8 challenge is a lot easier – in fact, it may just be the easiest challenge so far in the 14 Days of Fortnite event.

All you need to do is damage opponents with eight different weapons – that’s it, just one hit of damage will give you progress.

A simpler challenge for Day 8.

It means that you can probably complete this challenge in only a single match, as long as you remember to cycle out different weapons. Also, weapon ‘rarity’ doesn’t count as a completely separate weapon, only weapon types (i.e. AR/SMG/Sniper etc.)

You may want to land somewhere quiet if you are hoping to complete the challenge in one match – loot up, and remember to switch your weapons in gunfights.


Once you do so, you will be rewarded with a free emote – ‘Take the Elf’ – a holiday themed version of the classic ‘Take the L’, which you can see below.

The Day 8 reward – ‘Take the elf’

If you are busy of the holiday period and can’t finish all the challenges in time, don’t panic, as they will still be available after the 14 Days of Fortnite event is over, for a limited time.

There are also new LTM’s going live each day for 14 Days of Fortnite, plus Save the World players can enjoy a free Llama each day.
