Believe it or not, Season 6 in Fortnite Battle Royale has already entered its eighth week, meaning that the Week 8 challenges went live on November 15.

As has been the case throughout the season so far, Week 8 provides players with three free challenges and four that are exclusive to owners of the Season 6 Battle Pass.


The official Week 8 challenges have now gone live and they’re virtually identical to the ones that were leaked on November 14.

You can see the official challenge list in the image below.


The challenges look significantly more interesting than most of the weeks that have come before in Season 6, so you should have some fun working through them!

The official Week 8 challenges are as follows:

Free Challenges

  • Stage 1: Visit Lonely Lodge and Retail Row in a single match – 1 Battle Stars
    • Stage 2: Visit Junk Junction and Pleasant Park in a single match – 1 Battle Stars

Hunting Party Challenge

The weekly Hunting Party challenge returns for its eighth installment and this week you’ll be looking for a Banner!


For more information, check out our in-depth guide.

Stage 1: Visit Lonely Lodge and Retail Row in a single match

As this is a stage challenge, you’ll need to check back when the challenges have been live long enough for us to play through them!

Dance with a fish trophy at different Named Locations

Probably the most enjoyable of this week’s challenges – you’ll need to find seven different fish trophies and use your favorite dance emote in front of them.


You can find all of the fish trophy locations that we are currently aware of in our in-depth guide.

Six Shooter or Heavy Assault Rifle Eliminations (HARD)

To complete this one you’ll simply need to eliminate a total of two enemies with the Six Shooter or Heavy Assault Rifle. As both weapons were recently added to the game, this one should be a lot of fun.


If you happen to be struggling, we’d advise playing a few games of the Disco Domination LTM where you’re more likely to catch opponents off-guard.

Get a score of 3 on different Clay Pigeon Shooters

The first of this week’s Battle Pass challenges asks you to score three or more at three different clay pigeon locations.  The clay pigeon shooters have been on the map for quite some time now, but you can find them all in our guide if you’re struggling.

Get Trick Points in a vehicle

Another returning classic, we expected to see the wording changed for this challenge so that you would have to use one particular vehicle, but it looks like they are all fair game.

Visit different Named Locations in a single match

As easy as A, B, C. Simply make your way to a total of three locations that are named on the map (Tilted Towers, Lucky Landing etc.) in one match.

Stage 1: Use Grappling Hook

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

FNCS stream

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.

While each of the FNCS Qualifying Heats are open to any player who has reached the Champion League divisions in Arena or higher, we know some of the big names who will be competing in the tournament, and their teammates for the event.
