[UPDATE – The Working theory was correct, more precise confirmed locations to follow] – Fortnite Week 8 challenges want players to search for 7 Hungry Gnomes. Here are some possible food-related locations where we could find them…
FORTNITE UPDATE 1
Fortnite Battle Royale's Week 8 Challenges should be going live shortly, normally just after 9AM. For now, we're still unsure as to whether the previously leaked challenges will, in fact, turn out to be accurate. They normally are, but there's always that odd chance that something changes.
Stay tuned for more.
Original Story – Fortnite week 8 challenges are coming very soon to Battle Royale on PS4, Xbox One, Mobile and PC.
Fans of the game had only just got used to the idea of Weekly Challenges refreshing on a Tuesday from the Start of Season 4. However, it was all change some weeks back.
As regular players will likely already know, the challenges were moved to a Thursday, just as they were during the entirety of Season 3.
This, we're lead to believe, was a deliberate decision by the Epic Games development team. So it's possible they're looking to ensure downtime and weekly Challenge resets occur at different times of the week.
Despite the slight change in schedule, it hasn't prevented the Fortnite Tracker from revealing the new weekly challenges list well in advance of them appearing in the Battle Pass.
Week 8 was no different, with the challenges leaking over the past few days before being picked up by the usual array of websites, like Fortnite Intel.
The full list of leaked Fortnite Week 8 Challenges can be found below, both in the gallery which includes more helpful info on what you need to do, as well as in a list underneath the gallery.
Fortnite – Season 4 Week 8 challenges leaked for Battle Royale Battle Pass
Fortnite's Season 4, Week 8 Challenges have leaked, here's a look at what you've got to do.
Fortnite Week 8 Challenges:
- Deal 250 headshot damage to opponents
- Search 7 chests in Salty Springs
- Search 7 chests in a single match
- Search 7 Hungry Gnomes
- Search between a bear, crater, and a refrigerator shipment
- Get 3 suppressed weapon eliminations
- Eliminate 3 opponents in Pleasant Park
Rest assured we'll have a guide to help with those more tricky challenges closer to their release.
It's also worth noting that whilst the above challenges are highly likely to appear in the game this Thursday morning, there is the chance that Epic Games makes some changes.
For example, the Week 5 Challenges didn't include the gravity stones challenge when they eventually went live. So whilst we're pretty confident these are the challenges you'll be presented with, there's also a chance some amends could be made.
in addition, it's not clear what players will need to do just yet for the Search 7 Hungry Gnomes challenge.
You'll have to stay tuned for more info as and when it arrives tomorrow morning.
As we mentioned in our most recent Fortnite Blockbuster/Loading Screen piece, players don't need to be on the lookout for a new hidden Battlestar this week.
That's because it doesn't exist. Last week some players noticed that they already had the week 8 loading screen. But what was more strange was that it didn't include a hidden battle star anywhere.
According to the intelligent folk on the Fortnite sub-reddit, the hidden battle stars were only intended for weeks 1- 7. That's why last week users also noticed that the special blockbuster skin unlocked after players completed seven weeks of challenges.
For anyone that missed it, the skin was called The Visitor and featured a customizable head display along with a special piece of Offworld Rig back bling. You can take a closer look in the gallery above.
So, to recap. There is a loading screen for week 8, 9 and 10. But it won't feature a special hidden battle star.
It will as already mentioned though "add to the narrative of Season 4" and likely provide some clues for where the game is heading as we approach Fortnite Season 5.
FORTNITE CHALLENGES EXPLAINED
New to the game? Want to know how those weekly Battle Pass challenges work? Read on:
Each week a new set of seven challenges unlock. The Weekly Challenges stack and can be completed any time before the season ends.
So if you go on holiday and miss one week, you can still complete them when you get back.
Although there are seven challenges each week, you can only complete four out of the seven Weekly Challenges to unlock your rewards and 4000 XP, so choose the challenges that best fit your style and those offering the most Battle Stars.
Why complete the challenges? Well, it helps you move up the Season 4 Battle Pass tiers even faster in the game. Move up faster, unlock more rewards, skins and other bonuses is quicker.
There are a total of 100 tiers in Season 4, so if you want to unlock as much loot as possible you better get a shift on and get to work completing the challenges.
