Fortnite season 8, week 3 challenge guide: Grim Fable

Weekly challenges in Fortnite work a bit differently in season 8. The overall premise is similar to before, but the presentation is different. This season, quests are given to you by specific characters who must be visited around the map. They come in the form of punchcards, which reward you with XP as you check them off your list. Once you start their questline, you’re presented with five challenges that gradually grant you more XP than the last. One of the new quest givers is Grim Fable, as part of week 3.

Grim Fable is heavily focused on nature and wildlife, and her quests reflect that. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about the Wolf Activity questline. These are the Grim Fable challenges and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Grim Fable challenge guide

Hide in a haystack at Corny Crops

Simply walk into one of the haystacks at Corny Crops (marked on the map above) to complete this challenge.

Destroy beds in Holly Hedges or Pleasant Park

There are plenty of houses with beds across both areas. Pick whichever location is farther away as the Battle Bus comes in to ensure you’re as safe as possible. We prefer heading to Holly Hedges since it’s typically less busy there than Pleasant Park. Just make sure you destroy three of them to complete this challenge.

Collect a harpoon gun

Harpoon guns are all over the place and are found in barrels near water. For this challenge, all you need to do is collect the harpoon gun from one of the above locations (no need to actually use it).

Hunt a wolf

Wolves are spread out around the island. Use the map above to pinpoint their general locations. Keep in mind, wolves move around a lot, so be sure to search a large radius to increase your odds of finding one. It’s also a good idea to pick them off from afar since they can be deadly up close.

Emote within 10m of wildlife

Much like the wolves, other animals tend to spread out beyond their spawning locations, so be sure to search around for them. We advise trying to use an emote close to a chicken or boar since the wolves are difficult to take on once they spot you. If you’re quick with pulling off an emote, you can earn credit for this quest without taking damage.

How many skins are in Fortnite?
Fortnite characters by a car.

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.
