Fortnite challenges for Week 6 of Season 8 have been leaked

Published

on

The Fortnite Battle Royale challenges for the sixth week of Season 8 have been leaked, and they surprisingly include the yet-to-be-released Boom Bow weapon.As is usually the case every week, data-miners have gone through new game files to discover and leak the upcoming week’s challenges well in advance of their release.

The Week 6 set will include a total of seven challenges, as usual, three of which will be available to all players and the other four only to those who own the Season 8 Battle Pass. 

Get elimination with Boom Bow/Flintlock Pistol | Week Six challenges

One of the Battle Pass exclusive challenges for Week Six will be to get an elimination with either the Flintlock pistol or the Boom Bow, which hasn’t even yet been added in Fortnite.

However, the emergence of these challenges pretty much confirms that the Boom Bow will be added between now and when these challenges go live, as had been suggested by prior leaks for the new weapon.

For those who are hearing about the Boom Bow for the first time, leaks suggest that it will be a bow that features ballistic arrows that will explode upon contact with enemies or the environment. 

The yet-to-be-released Boom Bow can be spotted in the Season 8 Week 5 loading screen.

Land at five different locations | Week Six challenges

As has become standard for quite a while now, Week 6 will feature a multi-stages location-based challenge that will require players to land at these five different locations.

  1. Fatal Fields
  2. Lazy Lagoon
  3. Shifty Shafts
  4. Frosty Flights
  5. Sunny Steps

In order to complete this challenge, players must land at these locations in the order presented above, as each location-based objective becomes available only after the previous one has been completed.

It’s also worth noting that players must land at these locations when dropping down from the Battle Bus and cannot simply visit them during the course of a match.

The fifth and final location where players have to land at will be Sunny Steps, one of the newest locations in Fortnite.

These challenges come courtesy of prominent data-miner Lucas7yoshi_, who has proven himself to be a trusty source for these types of leaks in the past.

Unless Epic Games decide to change up their usual scheduling pattern, these challenges should be going live on Thursday, April 4 at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.

Keep in mind that these challenges are not set in stone and are always subject to change between now and their release, although that hasn’t happened much in the past.

Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event: Everything we know so far

Published

By

The first live event of Chapter 3 is expected to take place in less than six weeks. Here’s everything we know so far, based on various leaks.

Leaked Map Stages

All future stages for the territories controlled by both The Seven and Imagined Order have been leaked by data-miner Hypex. The maps show the Resistance will retake control of most of the Island, leaving only Command Cavern and Loot Lake for the IO. The final stage will lead the story directly into a live event, with the Imagined Order having little options left for victory.

Leaked Quest Voice Line

Epic also recently added new voice lines for the upcoming Week 6 Quests which, when reviewed closely, appear to tease the main story of a new live event. The Agent Jones character claims “one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production”, seemingly hinting that the new event could be related to Chapter 2 Season 2’s The Device, which was also focused around a “Doomsday Device”.

A transcript of the Agent Jones voice lines can be found below:

“This will not come as a surprise, but IO management loves Doomsday machines – loves them! There’s even a doomsday division at HQ, oh man their softball team is awful but they will one day destroy us all so… kind of a wash. We have very credible intel that one of the IO’s Doomsday devices is now in production. We need to find out everything we can while we still can. Hit the field, I’ll prep the cameras . . . I have a very bad feeling that we are not ready for what we’re gonna find out.”

Doomsday Landmark

According to Fortnite data-miner GMatrixGames, a new Landmark code-named ‘DDMachine’ has been added to the game’s tags, suggesting that the Doomsday Device described by Agent Jones could be added to the map in the future.

Less than six weeks remain until the potential live event. We’ll keep you updated with the latest leaks and official announcements.

Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go Unvaulted Until April 25

Published

By

In preparation for the upcoming item vote, the Boogie Bomb and Rift-To-Go have both been unvaulted for a trial period until April 25.

Players can now find the items scattered throughout the Island from Chests, Llamas, Supply Drops, Loot Sharks and ground loot. Once the short trial period ends on April 25 at 8AM ET, new gold funding stations will go live in-game on the following day to let players “fund” the item they want to see return permanently (for the rest of Season 2). The item that becomes 100% funded first will automatically be reintroduced to the loot pool as soon as the goal, of which the exact value is unknown, is reached.

We’ll keep you updated on which item gets unvaulted.
