Fortnite season eight, week three: Where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map


Epic Games

We’re now in season eight, week three of the Fortnite: Battle Royale challenges and — like each week — you are going to need to full them to get by extra tiers of your Battle Pass. The challenges aren’t too arduous if you recognize the place to go — and I made some maps so you’ll find all the pieces shortly. 

This week Epic Games threw us a curve ball with a staged problem we have not seen earlier than. Instead of sending gamers to named areas, we have to go to biomes to finish completely different duties. It’s a cool twist on earlier challenges, since you’re not restricted to a single (and sure crowded) location. I hope we see extra challenges like this one sooner or later, as a result of it is tough when you recognize everyone seems to be touchdown on the similar spot. 

If you are not completed with final week’s challenges, head over to my season eight, week 2 information.

How to do stage 1: Visit Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in a single match

We’ve seen this staged problem many occasions and it requires you go to two areas on the island throughout a match to finish every stage. There are three phases, and the gap is larger for every stage, however this is a map so you recognize the place to go:

How to do stage 1: Destroy cacti within the desert

This staged quest is one thing we have not seen earlier than as a result of it takes you to completely different biomes on the map slightly than named areas. The first stage has you destroying cacti, however stage 2 takes you to the snowy space to go looking ammo bins. Stage three brings you to the brand new jungle space within the northeast a part of the island to seek for chests. Since there is not any concentrate on named areas, this one must be fairly straightforward to finish, since you’ll have much less likelihood to see different gamers.  

How to put completely different entice slot objects in a single match

This one must be fairly straightforward so long as you’ll find entice objects. Try to maintain this one behind your thoughts as you do different challenges and place any entice as quickly as you get it. You solely want to put two traps, so it should not be too arduous to finish.

How to go looking the place the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map loading display

The treasure map is a tier 10 reward in your Battle Pass, so that you in all probability have already got it unlocked in the event you’ve been finishing challenges each week. Here’s the treasure map, if you do not have it but:

The map is a crude drawing of the island, however in the event you look intently, you may see that simply above and to the fitting of the magnifying glass is the fortress on prime of Polar Peak. All it’s worthwhile to do for this battle star is drop in to the cluster of bushes southwest of Polar Peak and seize the battle star proper close to a frozen statue. Here’s the place it’s on the map:

How to go looking chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields

This is a reasonably standard-issue problem we have seen many occasions earlier than. Just choose a location and discover chests. It’s as much as you the place you go, however I’d counsel going to Fatal Fields slightly than Sunny Steps for security, as a result of I feel most individuals will need to go to the brand new location. Better protected than sorry.

How to deal headshot injury to opponents

This problem is fairly self-explanatory and you’ll in all probability get it organically as you play. Just remember that you just want 500 injury with headshots to finish it, so it would take just a few matches to get there. 

How to get an elimination with an SMG, pistol and a sniper rifle

Sharpshooters will in all probability don’t have any bother with this one, however for the remainder of us it’ll be a problem. You’re more likely to get an SMG elimination organically whereas enjoying, however you may have to concentrate on this one over the course of some video games to get the pistol and sniper rifle kills.
