‘Fortnite’ Season 8 Challenges – Week 3!

Hey Fortniters! It is that time again! Week numero tres is upon us and Epic has a bunch more to get us into this week. Let’s take a look!

Free Challenges

  • (Stages) Visit Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match

Stage challenge alert! This one is familiar, with having to go to two areas in a single match. The easiest thing to do is drop into the first and make your way to the second. My brother and I also figured out in a respawn mode like Team Rumble or Disco Domination that you can take advantage of your initial drop into one of the further from the circle areas, then when you drop in after respawn float toward the next objective. Still counts since it is one match! The other distances are greater but not much harder, going to Haunted Hills and Tilted Towers and then Frosty Flights and Loot Lake.

  • (Stages) Destroy 30 cacti in the desert

Another simple stage challenge. Destroy your 30 cacti (which can be spread over matches), then move to the next ones. It is definitely easier to do in a Team mode where exploration can be done with less chance of being shot. The next stages are searching seven ammo boxes in the snow biome, and then five chests in the jungle area. No named places are required so it ends up much easier to finish.

  • Place 2 different trap slot items in a single match

This one is easy but only if you know what you are doing. Just pick up damage traps, launch pads, campfires, or mounted turrets (May be more things but these are what I remember at the moment), and then place two of them immediately. You do not have to use them or get damage with them, just place them. As is the case above, this challenge is easier if you do a team mode. Not only can you find the items easier but once again, less chance at dying immediately and even if you do, RESPAWN!

Battle Pass Challenges

  • Search where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map loading screen

If you would like to take the time to go to your locker and find said loading screen to figure it out, you can. But I will just tell you where to look! South of Polar Peak there is a group of trees and in the middle a few statues. If you search next to one of them a battle star will appear to grab!

  • Search seven chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields

We have done this before plenty of times. If you want to try and get a two-fer however, get your stage challenge above to the point where you are searching jungle chests. From what I have seen, Sunny Steps seems to be more loaded than Fatal Fields, so it may be worth the look.

  • Deal 500 headshot damage to opponents

The number may be a bit daunting, but it is not as hard as you would think. Just aim towards the head and fire. Shotguns can do decent damage and if you are close and you are not as good of a shot you can luck into it. The easiest way would be to use a scoped assault rifle, especially a thermal one. As per usual, a team based mode would help you out, especially with respawning.

  • Get an elimination with a Pistol, SMG, and Sniper Rifle

Another week, another elimination challenge. This one is great because it does not require a specific location. Just pick up one of the above weapons and start shooting. We all know what I am going to say next, “A team mode is going to be the best way to accomplish this challenge”. Add in the new party assist to it and game with a buddy to make it even easier.

There are your week three challenges! Have you finished yours yet? Drop down to our comments and tell us about it!
