Fortnite Challenges: How to complete all of the weekly challenges in Fortnite

Fortnite challenges are nothing new to regular players, as they've been a big part of the game since they were introduced way back in Season 3 of Chapter 1. There have been numerous adjustments, tweaks, and gimmicks applied to them over that time, but the general idea of players completing set tasks to earn bonus XP has held true throughout. Although there has been a general recurring theme within these assignments for a while now – search chests and ammo boxes, visit specific locations, eliminate players – there are some Fortnite challenges that required additional information, like finding specific items or locations which may be hidden, and that's why we're here to help.

Because the Fortnite challenges are no longer exclusive to Battle Pass holders, there's more Fortnite players than ever looking to clear their lists. Everyone can collect the XP rewards on offer, earning new locker items and even some extra V-Bucks without spending any real money. To complete the weekly Fortnite challenges there are often hidden items to find, as well as specific tasks to complete which may not seem straightforward at first. Don't worry though, as we're here working our way through the Fortnite challenges every week to bring you tips for getting through them fast, as well as additional guides for any tasks that require further explanation.

The Fortnite Week 1 challenges introduced us to some of the new areas around the island, such as Rickety Rig, as well as fresh mechanics including dealing damage within 10 seconds of landing from the Whirlpool at Fortnite Hydro 16. There's also a process to follow if you want to defeat a squad of Henchmen to enter the Fortnite Catty Corner vault, as well as a trio of Fortnite gnomes in Homely Hills to track down.

For the Fortnite Week 2 challenges we're taking in some more new locations, including whizzing around all the Ziplines attached to The Authority in the centre of the map and headshotting Henchmen patrolling around The Fortilla. The main collectible items for this week are Fortnite Deadpool floaties, which are scattered around The Yacht found on the north coast, as well as foraged items such as apples and cabbage within the Fortnite Orchard area.

When taking on the Fortnite Week 3 challenges, you'll need to head into the stronghold of The Authority to eliminate some opponents, bust out some dance moves on top of the Rickety Rig crane, and deal damage while hiding in the Frenzy Farm cornfields. There are four Fortnite Floating Rings at Lazy Lake to find and collect, and you'll also want to commandeer one of the Fortnite helicopters then fly it into the Steamy Stacks to land at the bottom.

In the Fortnite Week 4 challenges we're heading back to Rickety Rig once again to harvest some metal, as well as revisiting Steamy Stacks in search of some ammo boxes to stock up with. There are more hovering loops to collect with the Fortnite Floating Rings at Pleasant Park, then get your best emote ready to dance in front of the Fortnite Sweaty Sands camera for 10 seconds.

With the Fortnite Week 5 challenges things are feeling a little familiar, with the usual collecting of chests, ammo boxes, and surviving until the top 25 after landing in the prescribed location. You'll also need to find some fireflies or a flare gun to use at Misty Meadows, upgrade a weapon at Salty Springs, and go fishing around Craggy Cliffs.

We've seen a new twist introduced in the Fortnite Week 6 challenges, as in addition to searching a few chests on our own we also need to search one hundred chests – though this can be done in a squad of up to four players and everyone's contribution counts towards that total. Elsewhere, you'll also need to dish out plenty of damage at Rickety Rig, as well as catch a weapon at Fortnite Stack Shack.

The teamwork tasks continue in the Fortnite Week 7 challenges, where you'll need to eliminate 50 players in total with the help of your squad – Team Rumble matches should count towards this and provide a more ready supply of eliminations. You'll also need to find some Fortnite balls of yarn at Catty Corner, and collect another set of Fortnite Floating Rings at Weeping Woods.

With the Fortnite Week 8 challenges we've immediately seen the new vehicles come into play for several tasks – you'll need to deal lots of damage while riding around in Fortnite cars, and complete a speedy Fortnite drive from Retail Row to Pleasant Park within the four minute time limit. There's also the boat time trial at Fortnite Motorboat Mayhem to complete, so show off your need for speed.

We'll continue to update this guide each week during the season, as new sets of Fortnite challenges become available to take on.
