The seven challenges for Week 8 of Season 5 have officially gone live in Fortnite Battle Royale for players around the world to complete.

Released on August 30, the weekly challenges follow the norm that has been set throughout Season 5 so far, with three being free for anybody to attempt and four being exclusive to Battle Pass owners.

The three “HARD” challenges for Week 8 require you to pick up four shotgun eliminations, search for a Battle Pass star “between three different oversized seats” and yet another challenge that is broken into separate stages.

The stage challenge for Week 7 asked players to open chests in various locations around the map and the Week 8 challenge is following in those footsteps, but with eliminations as the objective.

You will earn a total of three Battle Pass stars per stage completed, beginning with eliminations in Greasy Grove before moving on to Lonely Lodge and then finishing off in Fatal Fields.

If you can’t see the image above, the full list of challenges for Week is as follows:


  • Place Traps (10)
  • Search chests in Wailing Woods (7)
  • Shotgun Eliminations (4) – HARD


  • Deal damage with a Pickaxe to opponents (250)

Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 

In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.

Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
