Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges guide: How to complete the weekly challenges

We've now arrived in Fortnite Season 8 Week 2, which has seen the addition of buried treasure maps plus the launch of Compact Combat, a miniature version of Season 7's map in Creative mode. After a 30 minute delay we have our new set of Weekly Challenges to go up against, including Free Challenges for all players to take part in and earn some Battle Stars, plus an extra four Battle Pass Challenges just for Battle Pass owners to receive even more Battle Stars and unlock the weekly reward item of 5K XP to help you rise through the Battle Pass Tiers and add some new items to your locker.

Most of the challenges are pretty straightforward, but a few require further information to figure out what you have to do. That's where this guide comes in to play, as we've cracked the trickier challenges and done the leg work to solve them so you don't have you. For Week 2 this involves dealing damage to opponents with a Pirate Cannon, searching a Chest in different Named Locations in a single match, and visiting the furthest North, South, East, and West points of the island. Read on, and you'll be racking up those extra Battle Stars in no time.

Stage 1 of 3: Gain health from Apples

For the first part of this three stage challenge, you need to consume a minimum of five Fortnite Apples in order to gain 25 health, as each one gives you a boost of 5 health. These elusive fruit are mainly found around Loot Lake, Dusty Divot, Salty Springs, and Fatal Fields, with our map below showing locations you should be able to find them in:


Visit the furthest North, South, East, and West points of the island

This challenge involves identifying the Fortnite furthest North, South, East, and West points on the island, then visiting all of them. Helpfully, a recent update has added little compass signs to each of these four locations, so you'll know when you've reached the right spot. We've marked all of the furthest points on the map below, to show you exactly where you need to go:


Deal damage to opponents with a Pirate Cannon

Fortnite Cannon locations

One of the new additions to Season 8, Fortnite Cannons can be found in various locations around the island and have two uses. If you need to move fast, you can load yourself into the cannon then get launched through the air, doing an element of environment damage when you land. More importantly for this challenge, you can also fire cannonballs at opponents - and although you'll deal most damage with a direct hit, the cannonballs also distribute splash damage to the surrounding area when they land. If you're looking for a Pirate Cannon, head to one of the locations marked below then get firing:


Search a Chest in different Named Locations in a single match

The Fortnite map continues to update on a regular basis, and thanks to the big changes brought in by Season 8 we now have some different Named Locations - Lazy Links, Tomato Temple, and Wailing Woods are gone, to be replaced by Lazy Lagoon and Sunny Steps. There are now 20 different Named Locations in total, and you'll need to search chests in a number of them to complete this challenge. If you want to tick them off as you go, here's the complete list:

  • The Block
  • Dusty Divot
  • Fatal Fields
  • Frosty Flights
  • Happy Hamlet
  • Haunted Hills
  • Junk Junction
