Fortnite’s Week 8 challenges are here, and one of the trickiest Skye’s Adventure tasks wants players to find the character’s swords, which have been forced into stones dotted around the map.
After Season 1’s Mission format, Fortnite returned to weekly challenge sets with the launch of Season 2, focusing on the secret agent characters who make up the Battle Pass, with each one receiving two weeks in the limelight. This week marks the second installment of Skye’s Adventure, with players tasked with locating her swords which have been hidden on the map.
While most of this week’s challenges are relatively straight forward, finding Skye’s swords will definitely prove to be one of the trickiest, and if you’re struggling to locate them, we’ve created this handy guide to make the process a whole lot easier.
Of course, the most difficult part of completing this challenge is actually finding the swords, as they are not marked on the Fortnite map to help you along. You may stumble on them by accident if you play enough, but if you’re looking to finish this task quickly and efficiently, we’ve got locations for all five so you can plan your drops accordingly.
The majority of the swords can be found in the north of the island, with two sitting north-west and south-east of Pleasant Park respectively, and another sitting on the hill that overlooks Craggy Cliff. A sword sits on the mountains between The Grotto and Retail Row, while the fifth and final weapon sits just north of Lazy Lake.
Once you’ve located them, you simply need to walk over and use the interact button on either your keyboard or controller, which will then play an animation to let you know you’ve found the sword and knocked it off your list. You will need to find all five, but the good news is that you don’t need to do it all in one match, so you can space them out or visit them in any order you please.
The easiest way to complete this challenge quickly is to do it in Team Rumble, which allows you to respawn if you find yourself taken down by an enemy. Remember though, they don’t all have to be found in one match, so if you want to do them in normal matches, you can do so with no penalty.
This task makes up one of the 10 challenges in the second week of Skye’s Adventure, with every completed task offering 40,000 XP as a reward for your efforts.
