Fortnite Skye's Adventure challenges: How to complete her assignments and unlock the SHADOW or GHOST Skye style

Week 8 is here, which means we have a second set of assignments available from our latest Agent, to add to the Fortnite Skye's Adventure challenges revealed last week. This follows the established pattern set out so far in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2, which means there's only one more Agent to meet after this. Some of Skye's fresh tasks are similar to the previous week, so if you've been collecting foraged items or sneaking around Spy Bases then get ready to do more of the same, along with the standard Fortnite weapon damage and sightseeing activities to undertake.

As the season rolls on it's time to start thinking about levelling up your battle pass to the maximum tier, and if you work your way through the lists here then you can pick up a hearty 40,000 XP for each task to can put a tick next to. Read on and we'll tell you all the details you need to beat the Fortnite Skye's Adventure challenges, as well as showing you how to unlock the Fortnite Skye's SHADOW or GHOST style.

How to find the Fortnite Skye's Adventure challenges

As with previous lists, you can access the Fortnite Skye's Adventure challenges by opening up the Challenge Table, which is right in the middle of the Battle Pass screen. Flick between the tabs at the top and you'll find the entry for Skye's Adventure, with markers then appearing on the main console map to show you roughly where these challenges can be completed, and if you move over the icon in the bottom left of the screen you can see all the Fortnite Skye's Adventure challenges in one place. Note that there will be more than one map marker displayed for certain challenges, as they take place across several locations.

Search chests at Spy Bases (7)

The five Spy Bases of The Agency, The Grotto, The Rig, The Shark, and The Yacht are clearly marked on the map, and you need to search seven chests within them – if you visit one of the nearby Fortnite phone booths first you can disguise yourself and move around the base uninterrupted, or if you visit in Team Rumble mode then no Henchman will spawn.

Deal damage to players with SMGs or Pistols (400)

Both of these weapons have a reasonably short range, so get up close and personal with your opponents to deal maximum damage. Team Rumble will let you rack up the damage quickly while keeping hold of your SMG and/or pistol if you get eliminated.

Mark an Uncommon, Rare, and Epic Item (3)

To mark an item, aim at it then tap left on the d-pad – you can do this in any mode including Solo, and you'll need to tag an uncommon (green), rare (blue), and epic (purple) item for this one.

Collect 75 of each material within 60 seconds after landing from the Battle Bus (3)

75 of a material isn't a large amount, but you’ll need to harvest it for all three materials within the first minute, so try to start harvesting mats as soon as you land and aim for the weak points to speed the process up. Good locations with wood, stone, and metal available include the gas stations in A5, F5, and G4, or Logjam Woodworks in B6.

Hide in a Creepin' Cardboard at the Box Factory (1)

You'll need to head to the Fortnite Box Factory location then hop inside one of the many Creepin' Cardboard boxes there, but watch out for other sneaky players doing the same.

Consume Foraged Items at Weeping Woods or The Orchard (10)

You'll find Fortnite foraged items at various locations, but for this challenge you'll specifically need to consume mushrooms in Weeping Woods or apples at the Fortnite Orchard north of Frenzy Farm.

Visit The Shark, Rapid's Rest, and Gorgeous Gorge (3)

To take a sightseeing tour with a watery theme, pay a visit to each of the Fortnite The Shark, Rapid's Rest, and Gorgeous Gorge locations and tick them off.

Escape a Vault using a Secret Passage (1)

You'll find Fortnite vaults inside each of the five Spy Bases, and to open them you'll first need to eliminate the Boss then steal the keycard they drop. Equipping this key card will then trace out a line leading to the vault, and once you've used it to get inside you just need to hop in the portapotty to ride one of the Fortnite secret passages out of there.

Visit Skye's coastal campsites (3)

There are a total of five Fortnite Skye's Coastal Campsites locations around the edges of the island, and although you only need to visit three of them we've got all of their details so you have a choice of where to go.

Pull a player or Henchman with a Harpoon Gun (1)

Harpoon guns can be found as random loot, and often spawn from the fishing rod barrels near angling spots when you interact with them. It's easiest to pull one of the Fortnite Henchmen and Agents by shooting them with the harpoon gun when you have it, as their movement is more predictable than other players.

Search Chests at Landmarks (10)

There are over 60 Fortnite landmarks around the island, and a majority of them contain several chests, so head to any built up areas that aren't named locations and if a landmark notification appears then grab those chests.

Eliminate players with SMGs from within 15 meters (3)

This is best tackled in Team Rumble mode, where you can pick up an SMG then get up close and personal with opponents without fear of elimination.

Hit 5 consecutive weak points while harvesting materials (3)

Make sure you pick a solid object such as a large tree for this, as you need to be able to hit five weak points in a row without it breaking completely. If you're not sure what weak points are, aim for the circles that appear after the first hit and listen for the rising tone of your hits.

Fly a Choppa under Purple, Red, and Blue Steel Bridges (3)

If you're wondering how to fly a Choppa under Purple, Red, and Blue Steel Bridges in Fortnite, we've got a separate guide showing you where to get a helicopter and pinpointing all three bridge locations.

Stoke a Campfire, Consume Foraged Apple, Consume Foraged Mushroom (3)

There are plenty of Fortnite campfires around to stoke for extra health, and we provided a link in Week 7 above for where to find foraged items – if you head to Frenzy Farm, you should find apples in the orchard to the north and mushrooms in the circle of trees to the west.

Land at The Shark and visit The Agency in the same match (2)

Both of these locations are marked on the map so are easy to find – once you've landed at The Shark you should get out of there and jump in one of the nearby Fortnite motorboats, then you can ride down the river southeast all the way to the Agency as fast as possible.

Hit Pistol headshots on players or Henchmen (10)

There are two approaches to this – either play Team Rumble and run around with a pistol getting as many headshots as possible, or jump into Solo/Duos/Squads then find a pistol and visit Spy Bases or Fortnite SHADOW safe houses as Henchmen are much more predictable and easier to headshot.

Search Skye’s sword in a stone found in high places (5)

We've been busy searching the island to find all of the Fortnite Skye's Sword locations, so you can pick which five you want to use to clear this challenge.

Block damages with a Kingsman (200)

The Kingsman is a new melee weapon which can also be used as a shield to block incoming damage from opponents. It appears as a random loot, which you're probably most likely to find at the Spy Bases.

Bounce on Crash Pads in different matches (3)

Crash Pads are another new item added recently, which allows you throw down a soft cushion to bounce on without sustaining damage, so keep an eye out for it as loot and make sure you use one if you find it in a match.

How to unlock the Fortnite Skye SHADOW or GHOST style

The options for the Fortnite Skye SHADOW or GHOST style can be found by looking under the Agents menu from the Battle Pass area, then selecting the fourth entry for Skye. To access this style option you'll first need to complete three tasks:

  • Buy the Battle Pass
  • Reach Battle Pass Level 80
  • Complete 18 Skye Challenges

After you've done those three tasks, Skye's final SHADOW missions and final GHOST mission will become available. As before with the other agents, you'll need to align yourself to one of these factions so you can complete their mission, which will then add either the SHADOW or GHOST style to your locker – you can't take back this choice once you finish the mission, so think carefully before you commit:

  • Find SHADOW Ollie in Weeping Woods (1)
  • Find GHOST Ollie at Frenzy Farm (1)

We've got all the information you need to know about beating this final mission, so visit our Fortnite find SHADOW or GHOST Ollie guide to track down your hat.
