Complete a lap of the Race Track in Happy Hamlet
A new race track has been added to the Fortnite map, this time for the unique Baller vehicle. Head to Happy Hamlet and look for the start of the race track northwest of town.
To complete the challenge, hop into one of the Ballers sitting in front of the starting line. Wait for the countdown to hit zero, then take off! Simply follow the path and ride through the glowing rings. When you reach the ring in the air, launch yourself upward by grappling onto the bottom of the arch. Get to the end to finish the challenge.
Similar to last week’s challenge but this time you need to deal 2000 damage with scoped weapons. These bad boys are great from distances, so pick a good spot, preferably higher ground, and take out enemies. These include the following:
- Suppressed Assault Rifle
- Suppressed Submachine Gun
- Suppressed Pistol
- Suppressed Sniper Rifle
- Scoped Assault Rifle
- Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle
- Scoped Revolver
- Heavy Sniper Rifle
Search chests at Paradise Palms or Shifty Shafts
Search seven chests in either Lazy Links or Dusty Divot. Pick your preferred location and pop open all your chests there. Once you start a match, try landing at the location furthest from the battle bus path to minimize the amount of players you run into.
Use our interactive map to find all the chests in both locations!
Shifty Shafts has a decent amount of chests but it’s not often where you’ll land without seeing an opponent. Paradise Palms, another destination where you’ll likely have another team land, has a lot of chests and they’re spread across the many buildings. If you do run into another team, you should have opened at least one or two chests by then.
Battle Pass Challenges
Get 15 bounces in a single throw with the Bouncy Ball toy
Once you unlock the Bouncy Ball at Tier 26 of the Season 8 Battle Pass, equip the toy into your main emote wheel. The goal is to throw the ball in a way that it bounces 15 times consecutively.
How do you do this easily? Well, the ball is very bouncy (surprise!), so finding a small enclosed space an throwing the ball will cause it to bounce off every wall and object it comes in contact with. These spaces include bathrooms, little shacks with closed doors, and small bedrooms.
Stage 1: Gain shields from Mushrooms
A multi-stage challenge involving using various shield items. Mushrooms can be found in forest areas with pine trees whereas the shield potions are commonly found in loot spawns and chests. The stages include:
- Stage 1: Gain shields from Mushrooms (50)
- Stage 2: Gain shields from Small Shield Potions (100)
- Stage 3: Gain shields from Shield potions (100)
Use a Volcano Vent, a zipline, and a vehicle in the same match
In the same match, use a volvano vent, a zipline, and any vehicle. What’s the best place to do this? For starters, volcano vents only appear in the jungle biome and the surrounding area. This includes areas like Sunny Steps, Lazy Lagoon, and even areas near Retail Row, Dusty Divot, and Lonely Lodge.
Many ziplines appear as a means to climb the mountain faster whereas vehicles can often be found the red research buildings found in areas around the base of the mountain.
Eliminate opponents at Pirate Camps
Pirates have taken over seven abandoned locations across the map. Visit all seven and eliminate three opponents total. You don’t need to do them in different locations or separate matches, just three total! You’ll know it’s a pirate camp by flag with the white kraken along with the shoddy wooden infrastructure. Use our map and our list of locations to help you find them all:
- To the west of the water at Lazy Lagoon.
- At the southwest section of the base of the volcano.
- The abandoned house southwest of Pleasant Park.
- In the snow biome, northeast of the old Greasy Grove (frozen lake).
- On top of the hill southwest of Salty Springs.
- At the bridge connecting the desert biome to the normal map, south of Retail Row.
- The abandoned house between Loot Lake and Dusty Divot.
