Season 4, week 8 quest guide

Collect weapons from eliminated players (2)

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)

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)

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)

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)

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.

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

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 makes a huge difference when going for that elusive 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 a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. 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.

How many skins are in Fortnite?

With each new Fortnite season comes a slew of new cosmetics to earn through the Battle Pass or to purchase in the item shop. With the game being out for nearly six years, the number of skins in the game has grown to absurd levels. No longer will you run into a match of solo players wearing similar skins. Between regular releases of skins and special event skins involving IPs like Star Wars, Street Fighter, Marvel, and more, every player has a very unique locker full of cosmetics to bust out in a given match.

These days, it's almost more likely you'll run into a skin you've never seen before than a player using the same one as you!
