Fortnite season 8, week 3 challenge guide: Big Mouth

As part of Fortnite season 8, challenges now come in the form of punchards, which are given to you by various NPCs around the map. The way challenges work is virtually the same as before, but they have a different presentation. During week 3 of season 8, you’ll have a new batch of challenges given to you by Big Mouth, a scary-looking creature with a … big mouth.

Big Mouth’s quests are geared toward scavenging, so you’ll need to travel around the map opening chests, ammo crates, and other containers to gather supplies. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about the Toothache questline. These are the Big Mouth challenges and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Big Mouth challenge guide

Open chests in Steel Farm

Steel Farm is located on the island east of Corny Crops, on the north side. Here, there are three possible chest spawns. If only one of them appears, make sure you quit out and jump back into another match to grab the other. You need to open two total.

Search an ice machine

Ice machines are scattered around the map and are similar to chests. Use the map above to find their locations. You need to open one ice machine for this challenge.

Open ammo boxes at Dirty Docks

There is no shortage of ammo boxes at Dirty Docks, but if you’re struggling to locate them, you might find the map above useful. All you need are two of them for this challenge.

Buy a health item from a mending machine

You’ll find mending machines in the areas marked on the map above. These spawn in fixed locations around the map and utilize gold bars as payment. Items cost between 25 to 120 gold bars, so grab whichever you can afford to earn credit for this one.

Search a supply drop

Supply drops begin spawning toward the end of a match, so your best bet is to play it safe so you can outlast the competition. They appear on the map as blue boxes, so once you see one, start heading toward it. Then, hide nearby in a safe spot as you wait for it to drop down. Survey the surrounding area to ensure you don’t have company with you.

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!

Where to find Vendetta Flopper in Lego Fortnite
Characters fishing in LEGO Fortnite.

The fishing update to Lego Fortnite added, you guessed it, the ability to fish once you've made yourself a rod. Of course, since fish didn't exist in the game before this, an entire school of undersea life needed to be created. Every fish you can catch has a different benefit, from restoring a bunch of health when you eat it to giving you some kind of buff. The rarest and most useful fish is certainly the Vendetta Flopper, making it the most coveted catch in the game. While fishing is still heavily dependent on luck, you won't even have a chance at this fish unless you know where to cast your line.
Where to find the Vendetta Flopper

Before you even attempt to attempt this legendary catch, make sure you're ready with an Epic fishing rod and Epic Bait Bucket to give yourself the best chance at a rare catch. The nest step is to only cast into the glowing purple zones that indicate the presence of rare fish. Fishing in any other part of the water won't yield the Vendetta Flopper we're after.
