Fortnite player trolled trying to complete Week 8 Dive! challenges

A Fortnite Battle Royale player has shared his unfortunate death while trying to complete some of the Week 8 Dive! challenges, warning other players looking to fill out their Battle Pass.

The Mission set for week eight of Fortnite Chapter 2 revolves around the water, with players asked to dive around the map to complete their weekly challenges.

These challenges give players tons of XP and Battle Stars to help rank up their Battle Passes and unlock new cosmetic items to equip in game. However, players trying to complete challenges this week have to be wary of some trolls on the loose, as one player demonstrated.

Epic GamesSwimming is integral to the Week 8 Dive! missions, but players have to be careful to not get trolled.

In a video uploaded to Reddit by ‘EastonBryksa’ on November 28, they shared a warning for other players looking to complete their missions — especially the Time Trials at Lazy Lake.

As he was dancing around the stream, going from checkpoint to checkpoint, EastonBryksa hit the waterfall at Gorgeous Gorge. However, instead of plummeting into the stream below, he hit a solid wall of wood with others building around the lake.

This led to the player’s death without completing the mission, forcing EastonBryksa to load into game again and try to not get found out by trolls.

The mission players have to complete for their Battle Pass is the “Complete the swimming time trials at Lazy Lake and East of Hydro 16,” making players use some of the new mechanics in Fortnite Chapter 2.

However, some people like in EastonBryksa’s game have exploited this by building across the Gorgeous Gorge in a way that’s impossible to dodge. 

Players can circumvent this by buying Battle Tiers, but some feel like doing that is just a way of cheating the system and would rather complete the missions themselves.

Since Fortnite Chapter 2 came out with the new map, players have been building across rivers to troll players at waterfalls. However, this is the first time it’s directly affected some of the game’s missions.

So, if you are looking at undertaking some of this week’s Dive! missions, you might need to look twice before jumping into the deep end at Gorgeous Gorge, or you could be hitting rock bottom.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
