Fortnite: ‘Visit the furthest North, South, East, and West points of the island’ challenge guide

The Week 2 challenges for Fortnite Season 8 are really putting players through their paces, and one particular task will require you to travel to every corner of the map – here’s how to complete it.

Most of the challenges this week are fairly self-explanatory, but that doesn’t mean they’re all quick and easy.

If you’re someone who likes to keep up with the season-long ‘Discovery challenges’, you’ll need to complete all of the week 2 challenges too, and that means covering almost every yard of the map.

Here’s the location of the furthest north, south east and west points on the map.

Furthest North point on Fortnite map

The most Northern point on the battle royale map.

To reach the furthest northern point on the map, you will need to head to the cliffs just above Junk Junction, directly north of Pleasant Park.

Furthest East point on Fortnite map

Head to Lonely Lodge for the eastern point of the map.

Between Lonely Lodge and the start of Paradise Palms, you will find the most eastern point on the map.

Furthest South point on Fortnite map

Lucky Landing is home to the most southern spot on the island.

Unsurprisingly, Lucky Landing is the most southern point of the battle royale island.

Furthest West point on Fortnite map

Another named location for the most western point.

Finally, to go as far west as possible, you’ll need to head to Snobby Shores.

Given the storm will be encroaching at all times, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to reach more than two of these points in a single game. Remember to focus on the other week 2 challenges too – which you can find full guides for here.

For the best chances, land at the location furthest from where the battle bus starts its entry to the map, that way, you will hopefully avoid a ‘hot drop’, and be able to scope out these locations in peace. Remember though, don’t leave the match early, or your progress for the challenge may not be saved.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes


Fortnite Witchshacks
Epic Games
These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Epic Games
Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

The Ruins Fortnite
Epic Games
Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

Fortnite Halloween props
Epic Games
If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
