It’s now Week 8 in Fortnite’s Chapter 2, Season 2, and as always that means there’s a brand-new set of challenges which go live on Thursday, April 9 for players to sink their teeth into

Fortnite fans expecting a major update on April 7 were left slightly disappointed, with developers Epic Games deciding not to add any new items and instead turning their focus to the mechanics of the game itself with a maintenance patch, working on stability, glitches, and overall performance to improve quality of life for players searching for Victory Royales.

While they may not have introduced anything significant, that doesn’t mean there isn’t still plenty for players to do, with Season 2’s eighth set of weekly challenges going live on April 9, and giving fans plenty of tasks to complete in search of some XP rewards and cosmetics from their Battle Pass.

Players will need to use a Choppa for one of Fortnite’s Week 8 challenges.

As has been the case throughout Season 2, each set of weekly tasks focuses on one of the characters from the Battle Pass, a group of secret agents who have taken residency in The Agency, although their overarching plans for the island remain unknown. This week, Skye gets her second group of challenges, as players embark on her adventure once again.

It’ll come as no surprise to Fortnite fans that there is plenty of traveling to be done, as players need to land at The Shark and then visit The Agency in the same match. You’ll also need to fly a Choppa under Purple, Red, and Blue Steel Bridges for another of the challenges.

SMGs and Pistols are this week’s weapons of choice, with 3 eliminations and 10 headshots required respectively for those hoping to complete Skye’s Adventure. Players will also need to keep an eye out for the Kingsman umbrella and Crash Pads which were introduced in v12.30, as you’ll need to use both of these items to successfully complete the final two tasks for the week.

Fortnite Skye Week 8 Challenges

  • Search 10 Chests at Landmarks
  • Eliminate 3 players with SMGs from within 15 meters
  • Hit 5 consecutive weak points while harvesting materials
  • Fly a Choppa under Purple, Red, and Blue Steel Bridge
  • Stoke a Campfire, Consume Foraged Apple, Consume Foraged Mushroom
  • Land at the Shark and visit The Agency in the same match
  • Hit 10 Pistol headshots on players or Henchmen
  • Search Skye’s sword in a stone found in 5 high places
  • Block 200 damage with a Kingsman
  • Bounce on 3 Crash Pads in different matches

Completing a challenge comes with a 40,000 XP reward, which will help boost your Battle Pass and unlock new cosmetic items as Season 2 draws to a close.

There’s also a new Deadpool challenge for those who have unlocked the Marvel character’s skin, which will allow you to play as the anti-hero without his recognizable mask.

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.

  • 2nd: 20 Points
  • 3rd: 16 Points
