Fortnite season 6, week 8 challenges and how to complete them

Fortnite season 6, week 8 is underway, and as usual, it comes with a brand new set of challenges for you to complete. So far, this season hasn’t had any overly difficult challenges, and with this week, that trend continues. The most difficult ones require you to visit specific locations around the map — some of which are unmarked. Aside from that, there aren’t many that will trip you up this week, which bodes well for your battle pass level.

In this guide, we’ll detail all of the new season 6, week 8 challenges, and we’ll walk you through completing the trickier ones.

As usual, we highly recommend taking a peek at the challenge list before you jump in and start playing. That way, you’ll be aware of what you need to do right away. Here’s the latest batch of challenges for season 6, week 8:

  • Collect research books from Holly Hedges and Pleasant Park (1)
  • Use launcher from Guardian Towers (3)
  • Open chests at The Spire or Guardian Towers (2)
  • Damage opponent within 10 seconds of landing (1)
  • Dance in Durr Burger Kitchen (1)
  • Use Firefly Jar at the Pizza Pit (1)

Use the image above for a map of where to find fireflies (indicated by the firefly icon), as well as Pizza Pit (as shown by the red circle). We advise going to the location to the west of Pizza Pit to grab the fireflies — then head to Pizza Pit to throw one of them into the building.

And with that, you should be well equipped for completing the newest Fortnite challenges for season 6, week 8!

BattleBit Remastered: what are Squad Points and how to use them

Most of the time in BattleBit Remastered, you'll probably be more focused on just trying to survive than anything else. This massive first-person shooter takes all the best elements of the Battlefield franchise, such as the giant, destructible maps, class system, and a strong emphasis on teamwork within squads.

If you've been running with squads, you might have noticed yourself earning something called Squad Points as you play. These points are shared among your entire squad, and building them up is a great way to turn the tides of battle. That is, if you know how to use them. Here's everything you need to know about Squad Points in BattleBit Remastered.

Final Fantasy 16 Timely Accessories: what they are and how to equip them

Traditionally, Final Fantasy titles don't come with difficulty options. As the series has grown leading up to Final Fantasy 16, Square Enix has started to add some options to make the game more accessible to players. Considering this latest entry is more action-heavy than any that has come before, with advanced moves like perfect dodges and parries, these tools are more necessary than ever for longtime fans who prefer a more traditional JRPG experience. While the Timely Accessories can't turn this action game into a turn-based one like older entries, it can at least give you enough of an edge to feel comfortable getting through combat so you can enjoy the deep and complex story. Let's go over what these Timely Accessories are and how to equip them in Final Fantasy 16.
What are Timely Accessories?

Timely Accessories in Final Fantasy 16 are basically your difficulty modifiers, but instead of being menu options, they're items. These types of items have become a bit more common in the last few years and include the Chicken Hat from Metal Gear Solid V. This time, there are five different accessories that you can pick from, each of which modifies the game in different ways to give you an edge in combat. Here are all five of the Timely Accessories and what they do:
Ring of Timely Evasion
When equipped, Clive will automatically evade attacks, as long as the attacks can be evaded.
Ring of Timely Focus
When equipped, time slows before an evadable enemy attack strikes Clive. There's no effect when equipped with the Ring of Timely evasion.
Ring of Timely Strikes
When equipped, complex ability combinations can be executed by simply pressing the Square button.
Ring of Timely Assistance
When equipped, pet commands will be executed automatically based on Clive's actions.
Ring of Timely Healing
When equipped, healing potions will automatically be used when Clive's HP falls below a certain threshold. More common healing items like potions will be used before rarer ones like high potions.
How to equip Timely Accessories
When you first begin Final Fantasy 16 you will need to choose between Story and Action Focused modes. These technically also serve as your difficulty selection, but it's really just a simplified way of enabling the Timely Accessories. Regardless of which difficulty you choose, you will always have access to all these accessories and can switch at any time while playing (as long as you are not currently in combat).
