A new week of Fortnite Season 8 challenges are now live across the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, once again offering players the opportunity to earn some Battle Stars and grind for that XP. Of course, whoever finished the Fortnite Season 7 Overtime Challenges now has the Season 8 Battle Pass for free, and an increased number of benefits, challenges, etc.

Like most weeks, this week's challenges are pretty straightforward and very doable if you have a little bit of time to set aside for them. For the free challenges, there's only one challenge that will really require you to go out of your way. The other two will simply require you to drop in a certain a place and use a certain weapon.

Meanwhile, the Battle Pass challenges are basically the same thing. There's a few you may have to look up guides for, but the rest are straightforward and can be completed in a couple of sessions if you know what you're doing.

Anyway, without further ado, here are the challenges.

Free Challenges Available To Everyone:

  • Deal 200 damage with Scoped Weapons to opponents = 5 Battle Stars

  • Search 7 chests in either Paradise Palms or Shifty Shafts = 5 Battle Stars
