Fortnite’s 14 Days of Summer event is still rumbling on, and the eighth challenge requires players to “Bounce off giant beach umbrellas in three different matches.” If you’re struggling to find these big brollies, our handy guide will point you in the right direction.

With Epic Games taking a two-week break, the developers introduced the special 14 Days of Summer event to make sure that fans of the game have a constant supply of new content while they take a hard-earned holiday.

Every day for two weeks, fans receive a brand new daily challenge, with a special reward for those who can complete it before the limited-time mode ends in just under a weeks time.

Epic GamesThe massive umbrellas were added in the v9.30 update.

Day Eight requires players to bounce on top of the giant beach umbrellas that were added to the game in the v9.30 update. While they are hard to miss due to their size, they’re not marked on the actual game’s map, so unless you happened to come across one naturally, you may not know where to find them.

There are six of the umbrellas sitting across the Fortnite map, with only the snowy location in the south-west corner of the island missing one of the items, likely because a beach umbrella isn’t required in the icy elements of Polar Peake or Happy Hamlet.

If you haven’t been able to find the giant umbrellas, we’ve marked their location on the map below.

Here’s all six beach umbrella locations on the battle royale map.

To complete the challenge, you’ll need to build up beside them or make your way onto a hill overlooking one of the umbrellas, then jump onto the canvas covering on top and bounce off of it.

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.
