Fortnite Chapter 2 is now into Week 8, which means Epic Games are adding another brand-new Mission set named Dive! full of new challenges for players to complete.

Long-time fans of Fortnite will know that the original weekly challenge system is gone, instead replaced by Missions which offer even more tasks and rewards than their counterparts from the early seasons of the battle royale title.

As always, Battle Pass owners will have a new Mission to sink their teeth into when challenges go live on Thursday, November 28, with tons of XP and Battle Stars up for grabs as players continue to rank up their Pass and unlock cosmetic items for their characters.

With this week’s Mission titled Dive!, it comes as no surprise that players will be required to do some swimming, as Epic Games have added time trials at Lazy Lake and Hydro 16 which must be completed to scratch off this challenge.

Supply Drops and Chests are also priority items this week, with dealing damage to Supply Drops as they fall, and then opening one within 10 seconds of it landing makes up two tasks in the overall Mission set.

Mastering the Harpoon Gun will let players pull an item, opponent and catch a fish for one of the week’s more difficult challenges, but the good news is that they don’t have to all be performed in a single match. You can view all of the Dive! Mission challenges below.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 1, 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 time 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 after 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)

Once eight of the Dive! Missions have been successfully completed, players will unlock a special loading screen with a hidden letter ‘E’ than can be found somewhere on the map.

Battle Pass owners will have seven days to complete the Dive! Mission, so make sure to hop into the game and start ticking them off before time runs out on December 5.

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.
