Fortnite season 8, week 8 challenge guide: Ember

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

All vehicle mods in Fortnite and how to use them
Madmax characters in Fortnite.

Vehicles have gotten a major upgrade in Fortnite with Chapter 5, Season 3. Instead of simply being a great way to get around the map faster, and occasionally run over an unlucky opponent, you can now add mods to your cars to turn them into deadly weapons. Since this season's entire theme is centered around vehicular combat, you will be left in the dust if you don't learn how to fully take advantage of all the new ways to kit out your ride. Thankfully, modifying your vehicle is much easier in Fortnite than in real life, so let us give you the rundown on all the vehicle mods and how they work.
All vehicle mods and how they work
Modding a vehicle in Fortnite is so simple you may even do it by accident the first time around. While you're driving around the map, keep your eyes peeled for the vehicle mod crates lying around. These will have some text above them telling you which mod they are. Once you spot one, simply run it over to install that mod on your current car. You can also pick them up on foot and throw them at a vehicle to equip them that way.

Each vehicle can only have one mod per slot, and not all vehicles have the same number of slots. The SUV, for example, can equip any mod, but a dirt bike obviously can't use one that uses the roof slot. Here are all the mods currently in Fortnite.

Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 3 is out now and offers way more Mad Max than Fallout

The new season of Fortnite has begun, bringing players to a Mad Max- and Fallout-style wasteland full of ridiculous vehicle features and new items, including a War Bus you can work to control.

The "story" of Fortnite Chapter 5, Season 3, which is out now, revolves around a huge sandstorm has swept over the battle royale island. This has ushered in the "Wasteland Warriors," who rode in with the storm and transformed the south of the map with new locations. One is the Brutal Beachhead, a beached ship with what looks like a huge bitemark in the front.

Epic Games just teased a Fallout and Fortnite crossover

With Fallout being everywhere right now, it's only fair that it joins Fortnite, too. Epic Games teased on X (formerly Twitter) on Friday that the iconic open-world RPG series will be coming to Fortnite.

While there aren't any public details yet on what will be offered during this collaboration, we can expect some Fallout-themed weapons and some skins. Maybe a vault dweller suit or some power armor? Since Epic put a thumbs-up emoji in the caption, it's safe to assume that Vault Boy will be involved.
