While the Fortnite Season 8, Week 2 challenges officially went live on Thursday, March 7, we already had an idea as to what we could expect when they released, as data miners were able to leak what appeared to be the new challenges on Saturday, March 2.

It seems Fortnite players will have to be prepared to travel far and wide across the Fortnite map, with a number of challenges tasking players with visiting various locations dotted across the island.

The Season 8 Week 2 challenges are now live.

How to complete Fortnite Season 8 Week 2 Challenges

Week 2 Discovery Challenge

We’re now into the second week of the Discovery challenge, which replaced the Snowfall challenge that ran throughout Season 7.

Once you’ve finished all seven of the challenges for Week 2, you can head over to our helpful guide that shows you how to find the secret Forntite hidden Banner for Week 2, Season 8.

Deal damage to descending Supply Drops [5]

The first challenge of the week is relatively simple, as players are required to deal damage to a Supply Drop which is descending towards the ground.

If you see a Supply Drop in the sky, grab a weapon and start firing at it, although we don’t know how much damage you will have to deal just yet.

Stage 1: Land at The Block [5]

The second staged challenge of the week, players will visit a number of different locations on the map, as this challenge requires players to land at five different named areas on the map, including The Block, Dusty Divot, Polar Peak, Snobby Shores and Paradise Palms. This challenge must be completed in order, so players will need to visit The Block before the can progress to the next location.

Deal damage to opponents with a Pirate Cannon

Another straightforward challenge, players will need to get their hands on a Pirate Cannon and take aim at opponents. The easiest way to complete this is by firing cannonballs at enemy players, and we’ve put together a handy map that shows where you can get your hands on the Cannons you need to complete this challenge.

Here’s where players can get their hands on a Pirate Cannon.

Eliminations at Salty Springs or Haunted Hills [10]

Again, another easy challenge. Players will need to eliminate players while visiting either Salty Springs or Haunted Hills, although we currently don’t know how many eliminations you need to complete this challenge.

Search a Chest in different named locations in a single match [10]

Rather straightforward, players will need to open Chests in named locations such as Pleasant Park or Tilted Towers within a single match. How many chests players need to complete this is currently unknown.

Stage 1: Gain Health from Apples [1]

Players will need to find and consume one of Fortnite’s Apples to complete the first stage of this challenge. Apples can be found scattered around the map on the ground, and grant five health points to players.

If you see one on the ground, quickly build a ramp and jump off it so that you receive some fall damage, eat the Apple and the stage is complete. The second stage of this challenge requires players to use a Medkit, which players can find around the map as floor loot, or in Chests and Supply Drops.

  • Stage 1: Gain 25 health from Apples [1]
  • Stage 2: Gain health from using Med Kits [1]
  • Stage 3: Gain ? from ? [1]


Visit the furthest North, South, East and West points of the island

Fairly simple but requiring more travel, players will need to visit
the furthest North, South, East and West points of the island, although
thankfully, you don’t need to do all four in one game. If you’re
struggling to figure out where you need to go, we’ve created a handy map
that shows each point on the map.

Here are the points you need to visit to complete this challenge.

This post will continue to be updated throughout the day with new guides and more information on each challenge. Make sure to follow @Dexerto on Twitter for all the latest Forntite news.

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.
