Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 challenges

There are brand new challenges available for you in week 8 of Fortnite Season 5. Here’s how you can get them done while making your way to the next tier of the Battle Pass.

Fortnite Season 5 is set to end on March 15, 2021, which means you just have a short while left to get through the Battle Pass. Luckily, there are plenty of new weekly challenges that give you opportunities to earn XP, and get yourself some cool cosmetics.

We’re now in week 8, and Epic Games have brought brand new tasks for you to tackle that are available until Thursday, January 28. Many of these revolve around farms, as well as the destruction of property. Here’s everything that you’ll need to do.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 challenges

You can complete a total of eight seven Epic Quests at own leisure, along with a timed Legendary challenge that’s available until the end of the week.

While last week’s challenges focused on shields, the theme this time around is farming. Here are all the Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 challenges:

  • Destroy apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market (3)
  • Drive a car through the corn field at Steel Farm (1)
  • Deliver a truck to Sunflower’s Farm (1)
  • Pistol Damage (250)
  • Collect Gold Bars (500)
  • Blow up a gas pump (1)
  • Distance traveled Gliding (3,500)
  • Eat Fish (10/20/30/40/50)

As you may have noticed, three of the challenges will require you to head over to a Farm or Farmers Market on the map. You can land directly at the Orchard’s Farmer’s Market, and start destroying boxes there before rotating to the Steel Farm.

Aside from that, we have a fairly standard set of Epic Quests that you’d come to expect, and that are fairly easy to complete. Pistols are common, so you’ll have no trouble finding one, and then use it to deal a total of 250 damage to players.

You can gain some distancing while gliding right after you jump from the Battle Bus, and Gold Bars can be found in safes, tills, and washing machines. You can blow up a gas pump by heading over to a gas station, and then shooting one repeatedly.

You’ll earn 20,000 XP for each Epic Quest that you complete, and can earn up to 140,000 XP total by getting them all. Then you can increase your earnings even further by attempting week 8’s Legendary quest.

This requires you to catch some fish with a Rod, Harpoon Gun, or explosives before eating them. This challenge has different tiers, and you’ll need to eat 50 fish in order to complete it. This will net you a total of 55,500 XP.

That sums up many of the weekly tasks, and we’ll post separate guides for Farm challenges when they go live. Be sure to complete them before they expire on Thursday, January 28, 2021.

Fortnite Ant-Man skin leaked as next Marvel crossover for Season 5

Fortnite data miners have discovered that the next hunter skin to come to Chapter 2, Season 5 is Marvel’s Ant-Man.

Fortnite Ant-Man

Fortnite is set to further bolster its roster of Marvel Superheroes, with data miners uncovering Ant-Man as the next Hunter to join Season 5.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 went all-in on superhero content. Avengers and X-Men joined the battle royale fray and Stark Industries arrived as a POI on the map. This super-hero-themed season ended with Marvel characters and Fortnite players joining forces to defeat Galactus – which brought us into Season 5.

Over the course of Season 5, Jonesy has brought hunters to the island from various universes and pop culture. We’ve seen The Mandalorian, Master Chief, Predator, and The Terminator arrive over the course of the season.

Season 6 is set to launch around March 16, but it appears Epic Games are going to treat players to at least one last hunter before the season ends.

An image and audio files discovered by Fortnite data miner VastBlast strongly hint at Marvel superhero Ant-Man’s arrival.

Popular and reliable Fortnite leaker HYPEX confirmed this theory by tweeting on March 5 that “The next hunter is confirmed to be Ant-Man!”

Ant-Man was a notable exclusion from Season 4, especially when he had his own POI, Ant Manor.

However, it appears Jonesy has recruited him to help stabilize the Zero Point. Some crazy stuff with the Zero Point is expected to happen at the end of Season 5, and Ant-Man could very well tie into this. Ant-Man can shrink down so small that he enters the Quantum Realm, which may be a valuable skill Jonesy is looking for.

How to get Ant-Man skin in Fortnite

No information has been revealed on how Ant-Man will enter the Fortnite fray, but by looking at how previous new pop culture characters have been added, we can make an educated prediction.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

It’s highly likely that Ant-Man will come to the Item Shop alongside a series of cosmetic items associated with the character. We’re not sure on a release date, but with the end of Season 5 quickly nearing the horizon, it’ll most likely arrive at some point in the week beginning March 8.

Fortnite often releases male and female versions of their most popular skins, so it’s very likely that we will also be seeing The Wasp come to Fortnite either at the same time as, or not long after, Ant-Man arrives.

When does Fortnite Season 6 start? Chapter 2 Season 5 end date

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6 is almost here, so here’s when Season 5 ends, and everything we know about the next major update.

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 is now nearing its end, but how long does it have left, and when will Season 6 officially launch?

Fortnite divides its content up into Seasons, with Chapters dividing them up further. Once Fortnite reached the end of Season 10 in October 2019, the game moved onto Chapter 2. We’re now nearing the end Chapter 2, Season 5, so players have set their sights on what Season 6 will have in store.

Fortnite Season 4 ended on December 2 following a massive battle between Fortnite players, Marvel heroes, and Galactus. The game was down for a few hours and then Season 5, titled ‘Zero Point,’ kicked off in style.

A plethora of pop-culture characters have come to the game in Season 5, such as Star Wars’ The Mandalorian, God of War’s Kratos, Xenomorphs, and the Predator.

How long does Season 5’s Battle Pass have left, and when does Season 6 start?

When does Fortnite Season 6 begin?

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 will end on March 16, 2021 with Season 6 likely to follow directly after it.

Official Fortnite channels have confirmed that the Battle Pass will end on March 16, so it’s safe to assume that Season 6 will begin during the week beginning March 15.

Popular and reliable leaker HYPEX has also revealed that Season 6 won’t be delayed, as the update has been added to the staging servers on March 5.

What will be in Fortnite Season 6?

Fortnite data miners already have an idea of what Season 5’s end event will look like. In the 15.50 update files, Mang0e discovered NPCs will be “teleported to wacky places by the Zero Point,” and Fort Tory discovered that audio will be distorted as we reach the event.

It’s likely Season 6 will feature significant map changes. We last saw Colossal Coliseum, Stealthy Stronghold, and the return of fan-favorite location Tilted Towers.

The theme for next season’s content is anyone’s guess, but data miners have become adept at deciphering Epic Games’ plans so we’re likely to have a strong idea before it officially launches. There is a plethora of leaked content such as vehicle-based bosses, and the ability to sell your loot to NPCs for Gold that could arrive in Season 6.

As soon as we know more about Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6, we’ll be sure to update you.

Fortnite leak reveals major tournament planned for Season 6

A recent Fortnite leak is pointing towards a major tournament planned for Season 6 – perhaps even an in-person LAN.

Fortnite Champion Series 2020, 2021

A new Fortnite leak is pointing towards a major tournament planned for Season 6.

It appears that through some Fortnite leaks that the possibility for a new LAN event could be on the horizon. With recent restrictions in place throughout the world, LAN events have been mostly absent throughout 2020.

Recently, players have been competing in the Fortnite Champion Series for the past year, with smaller events happening online.

Now, according to popular Fortnite leaker VastBlastt on Twitter, we may see some LAN events coming soon, as the Live Broadcasting server has recently been updated to the v16.00 version on an update posted on March 3, 2021.

The last time the client saw an update was in January 2020, during the Dreamhack Anaheim event, which was the final LAN before the health crisis shut down all in person LAN events for the remainder of 2020, and into 2021.

We are unaware on exactly what this could mean, as Epic Games have already confirmed we won’t be seeing a World Cup in 2021.

If this is in fact for a LAN event, this would be the second LAN event announced by a developer for 2021, as VALORANT developer Riot have already announced that a LAN event will be occurring during 2021.

Fortnite's Champion Series, 2020, 2021

Most likely though, is that this is just an update for the Live Broadcasting server, in preparation for future events that will be hosted in 2022, or maybe Epic Games plans to use the client for other reasons.

Regardless for the reasoning behind this update, we’ll sure find out in the coming months if this is related to a LAN event. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that conditions in the world improve so we can get back to in-person esports as soon as possible.

We’ll keep you updated if we hear any additional information.
