‘Fortnite’ Season Eight, Week Three Challenges Guide

Season eight’s week-three challenges are live in “Fortnite,” and that means new ways to earn Battle Stars and experience. By collecting more Battle Stars and upping their tier, up to a season maximum of 100, players can earn limited-time rewards like cosmetic outfits and XP boosts. (Collecting 10 Battle Stars will unlock one additional tier.) All weekly challenges are available for anyone who earned or purchased the Season 8 Battle Pass, which can be had for 950 in-game “V-Bucks,” or roughly $10. (The first three challenges are available to everyone for free.)

Here’s what you have to do this week:

  • Stage 1 of 3: Visit Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match (2)
  • Stage 1 of 3: Destroy Cacti in the Desert (30)
  • Place different Trap Slot items in a single match (2)
  • Search where the magnifying glass sits on the Treasure Map loading screen (1)
  • Search Chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields (7)
  • Deal Headshot Damage to opponents (500 damage)
  • Get an Elimination with an SMG, Pistol, and a Sniper Rifle (3)

To find specific named locations, key objectives, and the hidden Battle Star, head to the spots marked on this handy all-in-one cheat sheet by Reddit user “thesquatingdog.” The cheat sheet also lets you know what to expect from each stage of the multi-step challenges. As always, remember to finish out the match you’re in once you’ve completed one or more challenges in order to be sure you get credit for them. Finish all of them to earn as many Battle Stars as possible — which will give you maximum value, in terms of loot, for your Battle Pass.
