We’re still in Week 7 of Fortnite Chapter 2’s first season, but data miners have already managed to find the full list of challenges for week 8, called Dive!

First introduced in Season 10 of Chapter 1, unlike previous seasons in the first chapter of Fortnite, the new weekly challenge system now uses ‘missions’.

These missions include a list of tasks that must be completed, and by completing a certain number you will unlock the new loading screen for that week.

The loading screen itself is important, as it includes the clue for finding the hidden letters (which have replaced the old ‘hidden battle stars’ from previous seasons.

The Dive! mission for week 8 is set to be no different, leaked by Lucas7Yoshi, with a total of ten challenges, and eight are required to unlock the loading screen.

As the name implies, there are a lot of water-related tasks, and perhaps the most grueling will be the swimming trials at Lazy Lake and Hydro 16.

Week 8 Dive! mission challenges:

  • Deal damage to descending supply drops (200)
  • Eliminations at Hydro 16 or Holly Hedges (3)
  • Search a supply drop within 10 seconds of it landing (3)
  • Complete the swimming trials at Lazy Lake and East of Hydro 16 (2)
  • Eliminations without aiming down sights (3)
  • Pull an item, pull an opponent and catch a fish using a Harpoon gun (3)
  • Deal damage to opponents within 30 seconds of using a glider (1)
  • Search 2 chests within 30 seconds of each other (3)
  • Harvest wood within 60 seconds of landing from the battle bus in a single match (300)
  • Deal damage with 2 different weapons within 30 seconds (1)
  • Search the hidden ‘E’ found in the Dive! loading screen (1)


Week 8 Loading Screen

Although typically you’d have to complete the challenges to get the loading screen, the leakers have also managed to get their hands on that too.

The hidden E can be seen propped up on the lampost in the right-hand side of the image.

You’ll still have to complete eight of the Dive! challenges and unlock the loading screen to access the final hidden letter though. It’s believed this hidden letter will unlock the secret skin, which has also been leaked.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
