It’s season 8, week 8 of Fortnite, and as always, that comes with a new set of challenges. This time, you’ll get to meet Ember, an NPC who focuses on fire quests (go figure). The quests aren’t too difficult, but a few of them might trip you up if you’re unsure of where to go.

Here, we’ll show you all of the new Ember challenges, with guides for getting through all of them as easily as possible. These are all the new Ember quests and how to complete them in Fortnite.

Map of Ember in Fortnite.

To begin the Fire Yoga Questline, you’ll need to visit Ember. This NPC is found northwest of Corny Crops, so speak with them and you’ll be able to start knocking out the challenges. Below are all the Ember quests.

Fire Yoga Questline

  • Destroy a fireplace at Lazy Lake, Craggy Cliffs, Holly Hedges, or Pleasant Park (1)
  • Set structures on fire (10)
  • Emote within 5m of a vehicle that’s smoking (1)
  • Ignite an opponent with a firefly jar (1)
  • Heal from a campfire (15)

Ember challenge guide

Destroy a fireplace at Lazy Lake, Craggy Cliffs, Holly Hedges, or Pleasant Park (1)

Map of Fortnite fireplace locations.

Of course, you can visit any of the four main locations listed above, but the best spot is Pleasant Park since it’s so close to Ember’s starting area. Head to one of the two fireplaces shown on the map above and destroy it with your pickaxe (or anything, really).

Set structures on fire (10)

Map of Fireflies in Fortnite.

All around the map are fireflies, which can be captured and placed in jars. The map above shows their general locations, so use it to collect lots of fireflies. Once you have a handful, go around throwing them at structures. For best results, throw the fireflies at buildings, as the fire can spread and burn multiple structures inside. Once you’ve destroyed 10, you’ll earn credit.

Emote within 5m of a vehicle that’s smoking (1)

Fireflies in Fortnite.

Save some of your fireflies and then make your way to a vehicle. These are typically found in main hub areas, so visit any of them, throw the firefly at the car, and then get right next to it and emote to complete this request.

Ignite an opponent with a firefly jar (1)

A downed player in Fortnite.

From there, play normally, and the next time you down a player (it’s best to play in team-based modes), throw a firefly at them to finish this challenge. You can get away with throwing one at a player who isn’t downed, but it’s much harder to do.

Heal from a campfire (15)

Map of campfires in Fortnite.

For the final challenge, visit one of the campfires listed on the map above and interact with them to gain health. You need to recover 15 HP, so make sure you have 85 health at most before visiting one of these campfires.

How to unlock augments in Fortnite

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 wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive 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?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. 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.

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.

How to claim Capture Points in Fortnite
Character standing by capture point in Fortnite.

As part of a new Fortnite weekly quest, players are required to secure Capture Points around the map. As expected, the game doesn't specify where to find Capture Points, and even if you do stumble upon one, claiming it can be a tricky task. Here's what you need to know about claiming Capture Points in Fortnite.
Where to find Capture Points

Capture Points are located in the center of each main hub across the map. These hubs include:
