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.

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.

  • FNCS Week 2: October 16 – October 18

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.
