Fortnite season 5 week 8 challenges and how to complete them

Fortnite season 5, week 8 is underway, and with it comes a new set of challenges. This week, you’ll be working on farm-related challenges that are relatively simple — but you have to know where to go. Thankfully, Epic Games has fixed the challenge progression bug that was happening last week, so you’ll be good to start knocking them out this week.

In this guide, we’ll highlight all of the challenges this week, along with walkthroughs on how to complete some of the tougher ones. Here are Fortnite’s season 5, week 8 challenges.

Let’s take a quick look at the challenges for season 5, week 8 before jumping into the guides.

  • 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)

We’ll only be covering the top three since the rest are self-explanatory. The nice thing is that all of the challenges that we’ll be covering in depth can be completed consecutively and are all part of the same batch. In previous weeks, there would be multiple batches of quests that tend to get confusing since you need to complete prerequisites to get to the next — but this week is much more linear.

Below, we’ll detail three of the tougher challenges for this week.

The first challenge simply requires you to destroy three apple or tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market. The hardest part is locating the tomato boxes and the Farmers Market, itself, so check out the guide below for their locations.

Next up, you’re required to drive a vehicle through the corn field at Steel Farm. Once again, the most difficult task is to know where this area is located. It can also be tricky finding a nearby vehicle, but the guide below has everything you’ll need to know.

Finally, the toughest challenge of the group requires you to drive a truck through Sunflower’s Farm. The reason this one is tricky is because you have to use a truck, and they can be somewhat hard to find. The link below will show you how to complete it.

The rest of this week’s challenges are ones that you can simply get while playing naturally, like collecting gold bars, accumulating pistol damage, and covering distance while gliding. Even if you’re new to Fortnite, you can easily get through the rest of the quests with a squad of players.

Can you fix the Fortnite servers not responding error?

The last thing you want to see when loading up Fortnite for a match with your friends, especially when a big new update is dropping, is to be hit with an error. The worst of which might be the "Fortnite servers not responding" error due to how vague it is. Most people don't know what servers are, let alone what it means when they aren't responding, except that you can't play your game. The question then becomes if you have any power to solve this issue yourself or if you're forced to wait until Epic Games addresses it on its end.
Can you fix the servers not responding error in Fortnite?

The first thing to do when encountering this error in Fortnite is to go straight to the Epic Games Help website or X account (formerly Twitter). This will let you know if it is something on Epic Games' end that is the issue and also keep you updated on the status of when the servers are expected to be fixed. Servers can also be taken down for maintenance or in preparation for major updates, which will also be accounted for here. If this is the case, there's nothing to do but wait until they announce the servers are back up and running.

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!
