Epic Games continues to evolve Fortnite’s latest season with all-new weekly updates and if you’re looking to make the most out of your time, here’s a rundown on the fresh challenges in Week 8.

While many weeks prior have introduced new Points of Interest on the map, or simply introduced new cosmetics, Week 8 has seen a drastic shakeup in Fortnite. All new vehicles were dropped into the battle royale on August 5. You’ll need to be well on top of these new rides if you want to get through the latest batch of XP challenges.


From massive trucks to speedy sports cars, there’s a lot to digest in the v13.40 update. Getting a few games under your belt before diving into this week’s objectives will certainly help. There’s still plenty of familiar tasks up for grabs though, so don’t be discouraged.

From Holly Hedges to Salty Springs, you’ll be traveling far and wide as usual. Here’s a complete overview of everything you’ll need to do in Week 8.

280,000 XP is available this week if you’re able to blitz through the eight unique challenges. Some are stock standard with each passing week. Collecting a certain amount of building materials or finding a handful of eliminations, for instance, are fairly standard. There are some new additions to spice things up too, however. The full list can be seen below.

  • Search 7 Chests at Frenzy Farm
  • 3 Eliminations at Salty Springs
  • Complete the boat time trial at Motorboat Mayhem
  • Drive a car from Retail Row to Pleasant Park in less than 4 minutes
  • Collect 500 Wood from Holly Hedges
  • Deal 1 damage to opponents from inside of a vehicle
  • Deal 10,000 damage to opponents from inside of a vehicle
  • Search 7 Ammo Boxes at Lazy Lake

Jumping out from the pack is the fourth challenge this time around. You’ll have to get behind the wheel of a brand new vehicle at Retail Row. Securing a vehicle won’t be an easy task. Retail Row is sure to be a hotspot for the next seven days as everyone looks to complete the same task.

Not only that, but driving all the way from Retail to Pleasant Park is sure to be difficult as well. It might take you a few drops to even get your hands on a vehicle, so patience is key with this particular challenge.


Otherwise, everything is fairly standard in Week 8. You’ll need to complete another time trial at Motorboat Mayhem. Besides from these two objectives, everything else can be tackled fairly quickly.

You’ll need to put your foot down and race across the map for this week’s challenges.

These challenges will be live until Week 9 kicks off on August 12. So you’ve got plenty of time to get used to vehicles and claim this week’s XP for yourself.

The Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) is back for Chapter 2 Season 4, with a return to the beloved Trios format that fans have been clamoring to see make a return. With the action kicking off on October 9, here’s everything you need to know to make sure you catch all of the action.

FNCS is making its return to trios in Season 4 for the first time since the inaugural Season X event. While it’s been a pretty poorly kept secret, there are some changes to the format from when it last appeared in August 2019.


With qualifiers now completed, we’re heading into the main stage of the FNCS Season 4 event, with a full month of competitive Fortnite on the way featuring some of the biggest names in the game competing for their cut of the prize money.

FNCS Season 4 format

FNCS Season 4 returns to the Trios format that has been used in the past, and is arguably the most popular competitive format in the tournament’s history, with past events filled with massive plays and huge battles that make for the ultimate Fortnite viewing experience.


As always, FNCS runs on a points-based scoring system, with your final placement in matches contributing to your overall score at the end of the weekend. Those who manage to win a game will receive 25 points as their reward, with the values decreasing incrementally down to 17th place, with anyone finishing below that scoring nothing. There are points for finding eliminations though, so players will be on the lookout for enemies to wipe out and add to their tally.

FNCS scoring system

  • Victory Royale: 25 Points
  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
  • 4th: 14 Points
  • 5th: 13 Points
  • 6th: 12 Points
  • 7th: 11 Points
  • 8th: 10 Points
  • 9th: 9 Points
  • 10th: 8 Points
  • 11th: 7 Points
  • 12th: 6 Points
  • 13th: 5 Points
  • 14th 4 Points
  • 15th: 3 Points
  • 16th: 2 Points
  • 17th: 1 Point
  • Each Elimination: 1 Point

FNCS will be running in all the same regions it has been for the last few seasons: NA-West, NA-East, South American, EU, Middle East, Asia, and OCE, with the competition running on PC and consoles.


FNCS Season 4 will feature three weeks of qualifiers, with the top 15 teams from each week qualifying for the Grand Finals, who will be joined by the 87 teams with the highest cumulative points over the three qualifying rounds, with up to 132 teams competing in the Grand Finals on October 29.

As always, Epic Games will be hosting their own broadcast for the FNCS Season 4 events, complete with commentary and analysis to make sure you catch all the action as it happens. You can check out the official Fortnite FNCS stream on their official Twitch channel, which has been embedded below.


FNCS Season 4 dates

FNCS Season 4 will run across four weeks ⁠— three weeks of qualifiers, and one week for finals. If you want to sign yourself up, these are the dates you need to know.

  • FNCS Week 1: October 9 – October 11
  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18
  • FNCS Week 3: October 23 – October 25
  • FNCS Finals: October 29 – November 1

The first day of each week will be an open qualifier. If you make the top 33 teams, you’ll be invited to play in the next two days for a chance to make it to the Finals.


FNCS isn’t the only competition coming to Fortnite Season 4. Weekly Cash Cups for Solos and Trios will be returning, while the Dreamhack Online Open (Solo) will also take place across NA and Europe.

With players set to earn up to $111,000 for winning the whole tournament, you can rest assured that there will be plenty of action when the action kicks off.
