We are now in season 8, week 3 in Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges and – just like every week ̵
This week Epic Games beat us a curve ball with a staged challenge that we haven't seen before. Instead of sending players to named sites, we need to visit biomes to complete various tasks. It's a cool twist on past challenges, because you're not limited to a single (and probably crowded) place. I hope we see more challenges like this one in the future, because it is rough when you know that everyone lands in the same place.
If you are not finished with the latest week's challenges, switch to my.
Step 1: Ruin cacti in the desert (0/30)
- Search there magnifying glass sits on treasure map loading screen (0/1)
- Searching coffins at sunrise or deadly field (0/7)  Deal Headshot damage against opponents (0/500)
- Get an elimination with a SMG, gun and a sniper rifle (0/3)
How to do step 1: Visit Fatal Fields and Salt Springs in a single match
We have seen this staged challenge many times and it requires you to visit two areas of the island during a match to complete each stage. There are three steps, and the distance is greater for each step, but here is a map so you know where to go:
How to do step 1: Destroy the cactus in the desert
This staged search is something we have not seen before because it takes you to different cinemas on the map rather than named sites. The first step you have destroyed cacti, but Step 2 takes you to the snowy area to search for ammunition boxes. Step 3 takes you to the new jungle area in the northeast of the island to look for coffins. Since there is no focus on named sites, this should be quite easy to complete, as you get less chance to see other players.
How to place different field tracks in a single match
This should be quite easy as long as you can find folding items. Try to keep this behind you as you do other challenges and place any trap as soon as you get it. You just need to place two traps, so it shouldn't be too difficult to complete.
How to search where the magnifying glass is on the tax card load screen
The treasure map is a ten 10 reward on your Battle Pass, so you probably already have it unlocked if you have filled challenges every week. Here is the treasure map, if you don't have it yet:
The map is an uneven drawing of the island, but if you look closely you can see that the castle on top of Polar Peak is just above and to the right of the magnifying glass. Everything you need to do for this battle star enters the cluster of trees southwest of Polar Peak and grab the battle star right near a frozen statue. Here's where it is on the map:
Here's how to search coffins at sun or deadly fields
This is quite a common challenge as we have seen many times before. Just pick a place and find chests. It is up to you where you go, but I suggest you go to Fatal Fields instead of Sunny Steps for safety, because I think most people want to come to the new place. Better safe than sorry.
How to handle headshot injuries against opponents
This challenge is quite self-explanatory and you will probably get it organically when you play. Just be aware that you need 500 injuries with headshots to complete it, so it can take a few matches to get there.
How to get an elimination with a SMG, gun and a sniper rifle
Sharpshooters will probably have no problem with this, but for the rest of us it will be a challenge. You will probably get an SMG elimination organically while playing, but you have to focus on this one during some games to get the gun and sniper rifle kill.
