Epic Games has once again added a new batch of Fortnite challenges for you to complete. For Week 8 of Chapter 3 Season 2, there are plenty of quests to complete, each of which rewards you with XP towards the Battle Pass. This week’s quests are a bit tricky, but with our guides, you’ll be able to complete them with ease.
These are the new challenges of week 8 and how to complete them in Fortnite.
- Call in an airstrike on a tank (1)
- Deal damage to enemies with the combat SMG (500)
- Deal damage to opponents from 10 meters or less with the Drum Shotgun (150)
- Detonate remote explosives while sliding (2)
- Plant saplings in clusters of bomb craters (3)
- Refuel a repair torch at a gas pump (2)
- Run 1000 meters on the Choppa (1000)
Call in an airstrike on a tank (1)
During Season 2, many quests sent us to the Command Cavern, and this week is no exception. For this quest, head inside the Command Cavern and look for an Airstrike, which will appear as a golden loot item. Pick it up and then head to the east side of this area where you’ll find a tank. Launch the airstrike on the tank and a column of red smoke will appear, followed by a barrage from above. It is not necessary that there be an enemy in the tank; as long as the airstrike hits the vehicle, it will count.
Deal damage to enemies with the combat SMG (500)
Weekly, Fortnite features missions that require you to deal damage with specific weapon types. For this week, you need to use the Combat SMG, which is found in chests and as floor loot. You should deal 500 damage, which isn’t too hard, but if you’re struggling, head over to the Command Cavern and deal damage to the NPCs in this area.
Deal damage to opponents from 10 meters or less with the Drum Shotgun (150)
This quest is similar to the previous one, so head to the Command Cavern one more time and get yourself a Drum Shotgun. Once you find it, walk straight up to an enemy NPC and start shooting. You will easily deal 150 damage, as long as you aim for the head.
Detonate remote explosives while sliding (2)
For this one, head to one of the airships or another busy area to find a remote C4. You need to find two, so once you have both, throw them somewhere and then slide down a steep hill. While on the move, detonate the C4 explosives before you stop moving. The steeper the hill, the more time you have to detonate the C4.
Plant saplings in clusters of bomb craters (3)
Just south of Greasy Grove are several clusters of bomb craters (as shown on the map above). You’ll find numerous plant sprouts here, as indicated by the blue, translucent plants sticking out of the ground. There are three of them, and when you arrive, they will all appear on your radar. Just interact with all three and you’ll get credit for completing this challenge.
Refuel a repair torch at a gas pump (2)
This challenge is a bit tricky because it relies heavily on luck. For this, we recommend landing around Tilted Towers as it’s close to several different gas stations. While you’re here, do your best to loot as much as you can so you can get your hands on the repair torch. Use some to run out of ammo, then walk up to a gas pump and you’ll be prompted to refill ammo. For this you need to refuel twice, so make sure to use the repair torch again to deplete your ammo before using the gas pump again. Once you’ve refueled twice, you’ll get credit for completing the challenge.
Run 1000 meters on the Choppa (1000)
The hardest part of this challenge is getting into a Choppa’s cabin, but luckily, we have a map (thanks, Fortnite.gg) of all the spawns around the island. For this mission, we recommend landing at the spot that is furthest from the path of the battle bus at the start. Once you get into a Choppa, just fly around until the challenge is unlocked. You have to go 1000 meters, but if you get eliminated before you reach that amount, you can still pick up where you left off in a separate match, as it’s cumulative.
