Season 4, week 8 quest guide

Collect weapons from eliminated players (2)

Enemy running In Fortnite.

You’ll likely complete this quest naturally, but if you’re stuck, you might want to play with a team. This way, you’ll have more loot to pick up, especially if your teammates are playing aggressively. In other words, you don’t actually need to have downed the player to earn credit for this one — as long as you simply pick up two weapons, you’ll complete the quest.

Deal damage to opponents using shotguns from 15 meters away or less (100)

This is another quest you’ll probably complete naturally, especially since shotguns are not effective past 15 meters anyway. We recommend the Prime Shotgun, as it deals quite a bit of damage and is easy to use. To complete this quest, you’ll need to deal 100 damage within 15 meters, but it doesn’t need to be at once.

Hit an opponent with a FireFly jar (1)

FireFly jars are available as floor loot and from chests, especially in areas with a lot of trees. It’s best to keep your eyes peeled for FireFly jars as you play naturally and once you do, hold onto it until you find another player. You have to actually hit them with the FireFly jar for this one — splash damage from the fire won’t count. It’s best to sneak up on an unsuspecting enemy who’s in the middle of battling someone else so you can line up your throw.

Launch into the air using Launch Pads in different matches (3)

Map of Loot Lake in Fortnite.

While the act of using a Launch Pad is not difficult, this quest will take a bit of time since you have to play three separate matches to complete it. In terms of finding Launch Pads, you can actually acquire them from chests or as floor loot. But there’s also one on the north side of Loot Lake (marked on the map above). Either way, use one Launch Pad across three matches to finish this quest.

Mark a weapon, a vehicle, and a fish in a single match (3)

Car in Fortnite.

Marking your surroundings is one of the main aspects of a battle royale game. You can mark pretty much everything in the world, from weapons, buildings, and other items. For this quest, you need to mark a weapon, vehicle, and a fish in a single game. The trickiest one to find is a vehicle, so land by a body of water, grab a fishing rod, and cast your line in the water. Once you catch a fish and mark it, be on the lookout for a vehicle. There’s actually a truck spawn on the north side of Loot Lake, so you can easily grab a fish and vehicle quickly. After that, mark a weapon to complete the quest.

Search produce boxes, ice machines, or coolers (5)

Ice Machine in Fortnite.

For this one, we advise landing around gas stations, which always have ice machines (with fish in them, so keep this in mind for the previous quest!). Since you don’t need to search all five in one match, you can take your time with this one. Just make sure you don’t forget to open up the ice machines when you visit gas stations as you play. You can also find produce boxes on the north side of Loot Lake, once again, or inside houses, so there are plenty of ways to complete this one.

Throw Cow Catchers or Off-Road Tires (3)

Off-Road Tires in Fortnite.

To complete this quest, it’s recommended to land at Chonker’s Speedway, on the north side, specifically. In this building, you’ll see Off-Road Tires everywhere so make sure you collect at least three. Throw them at vehicles around this area, but keep in mind, this only works if the car doesn’t already have Off-Road Tires applied. You can actually shoot the Off-Road Tires to pop them, allowing you to apply your own. Just make sure you do this three times to complete the quest.

How to survive storm phases carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite
Character jumping while holding Epic weapon in Fortnite.

A new Fortnite challenge for surviving storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon has caused some confusion, as the quest's wording isn't exactly clear. Thankfully, the challenge is much easier than it seems, and once you know what to do, you can get through it relatively quickly. Here's how to survive storm phases while carrying an Epic weapon in Fortnite.
What is an Epic weapon?
Fortnite uses a rarity system with its weapons, which are denoted by colors. Purple weapons are Epic, but keep in mind you can utilize any weapon of higher rarity to complete this quest. As long as the weapon is at least Epic, you'll earn credit for surviving storm phases.
How to get an Epic weapon

There are several ways to get Epic weapons. One way is to simply find one from chests or as floor loot, but this isn't as reliable. You can also purchase Epic weapons from NPCs around the map. Nearly all main hubs have an NPC who sells weapons, so be sure to talk with them if you have the funds. Using an Upgrade Station is another solid option for collecting an Epic weapon, though it's expensive. Another option is to defeat the Highcard Boss found at Brutal Bastion, Shattered Slabs, and Mega City. Upon defeat, the Highcard Boss drops a Mythic Havoc Suppressed Rifle.

How to give specialist a command in Fortnite
Character interacting with NPC in Fortnite.

As part of Fortnite's Spring Breakout Daily Quests, players are tasked with giving a hired specialist character a command. Of course, the game doesn't specify how to do this exactly, leading to some confusion amongst the community. Thankfully, we've got everything you need to know about completing this new quest with ease in Fortnite.
How to hire a specialist

Specialist Characters are specific NPCs all around the map. If you pull up the quest itself, you'll actually see a map of all the Specialist Characters. Keep in mind that not all NPCs fall into this category, so be sure to look at the map. We like the one to the very north of Breakwater Bay as it's usually out of the way. Once you find them, you'll need to pay 200 Gold Bars to hire them. If you don't have the funds, be sure to play more and complete bounties as needed.
How to give a character a command
After you've hired the Specialist Character, they'll be on your side for the duration of the match. If you look at the top left side of the screen, you'll see an icon that represents the Follower Communications wheel. Press and hold left on the D-pad on console or the middle mouse button on PC to get this menu to appear. Once it does, you can pick from a list of commands such as wait or follow. To complete the quest, you simply need to issue one command and after the NPC does what you ask, you'll earn credit for completing it.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.
