Season 8 Week 5 challenges are officially on the way and fans of the popular battle royale title will have to head over to Pirate Camps to take out opponents, in order to get their hands on the elusive Battle Stars.

The fifth week of Fortnite Season 8 kicked off with the V8.20 update, which brought a host of changes including new items alongside an unpopular change to the game’s elimination rewards.

Rounding off the week is the Fortnite Season 8, Week 5 challenges, with many players expected to attempt completing them in the hopes of ranking up their Battle Pass.

One of the Week 5 challenges requires players to head to Pirate Camps and gain eliminations to complete the challenge. If you’re lost and can’t find the bases, or are struggling to complete the challenge, here are some handy tips that should help you out.

Where can I find Pirate Camps?

Pirate Camps were introduced at the start of Season 8 and can be seen dotted around the island, giving the Pirate invaders basecamps from which they can plunder the Fortnite map in search of loot and treasure.

Should you be struggling to locate one of these outposts, we have a useful map that will show you all the Pirate Camps you could visit. 

Here’s a look at where you can find Pirate Camps in Fortnite Season 8.

How do I complete the challenge?

Once you’ve found one of these Pirate Camps, you simply need to find three kills at the basecamps. The kills don’t have to come at the same Pirate Camp, and don’t even need to be in the same Fortnite match, so don’t worry if you get eliminated before you get all three eliminations.

More players will likely start to drop at these locations in search of the kills, so getting an early drop and finding a weapon will be key to picking off opponents before they take you out.

Step-by-step guide to completing the ‘Eliminate three enemies at a Pirate Camp’ challenge

  1.  Locate and head to one of the seven Pirate Camps located on the Fortnite map.
  2. Find and eliminate three opponents. (Remember: These do not all have to be in the same match.)

The Fortnite Season 8 Week 5 challenges go live on Thursday, March 28, and as the challenges have yet to be officially released, it’s possible that some may have changed when they become available.

A new glitch with the Fortnite Battle Bus has been found, letting you ‘drive’ the vehicle towards Galactus ahead of Season 4’s in-game Nexus War event.

The hype for Fortnite’s Season 4 live-action event is now starting to build, after Galactus has reappeared outside of the battle royale island ahead of the final showdown on November 30.

Nexus War will likely feature all of the superhero characters such as Wolverine, Thor, and others that have recently been added to Fortnite, as they face off against the Marvel supervillain.

Galactus can be seen in the water outside of the Fortnite island.

It was previously hinted that, during the upcoming event, Fortnite players will also need to “join the fight” against Galactus by learning how to drive the Battle Bus and a new glitch has been found allowing players to do exactly that.

Fortnite YouTuber Glitch King has revealed a clever trick that players can do to stay in the Battle Bus after the start of a game and ‘drive’ right up to where Galactus currently rests.

The content creator explained that after entering any limited-time mode where the Battle Bus paths towards the Marvel character, you need to briefly disconnect your internet connection just before the Bus kicks you out at the end.

The Fortnite vehicle will continue to move towards Galactus with your character still inside, giving you an up-close look at the Devourer of Worlds.

While it is likely that players will have much more control of the Battle Bus when it does become a feature in the event, it can give players an early feel for what the Nexus War might look like.

As of now, it remains unclear what exactly will happen during the Nexus War event but there have been a few Fortnite leaks hinting at yet another Black Hole ending to the in-game event.

Fortnite fans won’t have to wait too much longer to find out for sure, however, with only a short while remaining until Season 4 comes to a close and the Nexus War event finally takes place.
