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