Fortnite: Battle Royale players are set to unlock a new set of weekly challenges today for season eight. All players will get three new challenges for week seven, while those who own the paid season eight Battle Pass will get four additional ones.
Players can finish off these challenges in any standard or Limited Time mode starting today, including competitive modes like Arena and big-team modes with respawning enabled like Team Rumble. Playground is the only mode that won’t allow you to progress.
Week seven challenges will task players with doing simple tasks, unlike previous weeks when they had to visit several locations that they wouldn’t otherwise. It’s likely that those who don’t care about weekly challenges will complete some of them anyway after a few matches.
Check out the full list of season eight, week seven challenges below. We’ve put a few tips on how to complete them after the tables.
|Deal damage with a Pickaxe to opponents (100)||5 Battle Stars|
|Stage 1: Visit Junk Junction and The Block in a single match|
Stage 2: Visit Pleasant Park and Dusty Divot in a single match

The only ones that might be a bit confusing are the zipline and the dealing damage from above challenges.
Deal 100 damage with a Pickaxe to opponents [5 Battle Stars]
Fortnite players will need to ditch their weapons for this challenge, as damage must be dealt with a pickaxe to earn the five Battle Stars reward.
The easiest way to complete this challenge is to either land right beside someone at the start of the match and hit them when they have no gun, or knock someone in a duos or squads match, and use the Pickaxe to eliminate them.
Stage 1: Visit Junk Junction and The Block in a single match [1 Battle Star]
Fairly straightforward, players will need to visit a number of named locations in a single match to complete this challenge.
Thankfully, most of the locations are fairly close together, meaning you won’t have to traverse from one corner of the map to the other to finish this challenge.
The stages are:
- Visit Junk Junction and The Block in a single match [1 Battle Star]
- Visit Pleasant Park and Dusty Divot in a single match [2 Battle Stars]
- Visit Happy Hamlet and Snobby Shores in a single match [2 Battle Stars]
Visit 3 Pirate Camps in a single match [10 Battle Stars]
Pirate Camps are back in the Fortnite weekly challenges, with three visits to different outposts required to complete this challenge.
The Pirate Camps are spread out across the map, so aiming for three which are relatively close together is the quickest way to complete this challenge. All three must be visited in a single match, so if you’re eliminated before you make it to the third and final Camp, you’ll have to start over in the next match.
Deal 500 damage to players from above [5 Battle Stars]
Pain will be raining down on opponents, as you deal damage to players from above them. The easiest way to complete this challenge is to build above opponents when in gunfights, or sit on elevated positions like towers and hills and fire down at your enemies.
Search Chests at Loot Lake or Snobby Shores [5 Battle Stars]
Another simple challenge, players will need to open seven chests at either of these locations to complete this one. While both areas have plenty of chests, it’s likely that both locations will be much busier than they were previously, so prepare for enemies to appear and try to take you down.
Stage 1: Deal damage to opposing players while riding a Zipline [5 Battle Stars]
The second staged challenge of the week, Fortnite fans must deal damage to players while riding a Zipline to complete the first stage. Then, they will need to keep an eye out for opponents who are utilizing a Zipline themselves, and deal damage to them.
- Deal damage to opposing players while riding a Zipline.
- Deal damage to opposing players who are riding a Zipline.
Eliminate five opponents in different named locations [10 Battle Stars]
Fortnite fans will have to take out five enemy players in named locations. These are any places on the Fortnite map that have a name, so head towards spots like Tilted Towers or Pleasant Park to find opponents you can eliminate to earn 10 Battle Stars.
Other than that, make sure to grab vehicles such as The Baller or Driftboards to move along the Fortnite island efficiently for the challenges in which you have to visit several locations.
After you’re done with this set, if you’ve completed all previous weekly challenges, you’ll be able to find this week’s secret Banner.
