The week 8 set of challenges for Fortnite has been leaked and with the focus remaining on Skye, players are going to have to go on another hunt around the map.

Epic Games have continued to update their uber-popular battle royale, Fortnite, as Chapter 2, Season 2 has gone on – giving fans plenty of new content to enjoy across the map, while keeping the NPC agents that were introduced at the start of the season in a prominent role.


Aside from fighting them for mythical weapons at a number of locations around the battle royale island, the five new agents have all lent their names to challenges. With week 8 approaching, the spotlight continues to shine on Skye.

Skye’s home base in Fortnite is The Shark.

According to Fortnite dataminer iFireMonkey, the week eight set of tasks will continue on in the Skye’s Adventure name and want players to use the new items that arrived in the game with the v12.30 update. 


These challenges, which will each reward players with 40,000 XP, will have you deflecting damage with a Kingsman umbrella, landing on the Crash Pads, and taking down enemies with both Pistols and SMGs. 

Fortnite Skye Week 8 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Landmarks  – 10
  • Eliminate players  with SMGs from within 15 meters – 3
  • Hit 5 consecutive weak points while harvesting materials – 3
  • Fly a Choppa under Purple, Red, and Blue Steel Bridge – 1
  • Stoke a Campfire, Consume Foraged Apple, Consume Foraged Mushroom – 1
  • Land at the Shark and visit The Agency in the same match – 1
  • Hit Pistol headshots on players or Henchmen – 10
  • Search Skye’s sword in a stone found in high places – 5
  • Block damages with a Kingsman – 200
  • Bounce on Crash Pads in different matches – 3

As for new Deadpool challenges, the leaker also managed to reveal the two new tasks you’ll have to do for the Marvel superhero when the new week comes.

As usual, completing just one of these challenges will land you with a Deadpool-themed cosmetic – with week eight allowing you to claim the unmasked skin style.

  • Find Deadpool’s pool floaty – 1
  • Dance at Deadpool’s yacht party – 1

Of course, the leaker has been ultra-reliable in the past and Epic doesn’t usually change things once they’re in the files, but these challenges could be tweaked before they go live. 

We’ll just have to wait and see if that is the case but, for now, these are the challenges you’ve got to look forward to.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out
  • Deal damage after knocking an opponent back with Storm’s Whirlwind Blast (1,000)
  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
