Fortnite Week 8 challenges don’t appear to be the hardest list ever released by Epic Games, but they do come with a good bonus.
Having completed all of the Week 8 challenges set by the dev team, players can unlock a secret banner.
Clues of which can be found in a loading screen that is only unlocked after all the challenges are completed.
So what are the Fortnite Week 8 challenges and where is the new secret banner?
FORTNITE WEEK 8 CHALLENGES
A complete list of seven new challenges has been released today in Fortnite Battle Royale.
The free challenges that everyone can complete, includes:
Placing a Cozy Campfire or Launch Pad in three different matches, which earns you Five Battle Stars.
Building 250 structures for another Five Battle Stars and XP.
Searching between a mysterious hatch, a giant rock lady, and a precarious flatbed for the larger amount of 10 Battle Stars.
For those with a Fortnite Battle Pass, players can also complete:
Visit Paradise Palms, Salty Springs in a single match, followed by visiting Junk Junction and Loot Lake in a single match and finally, visiting Haunted Hills and Wailing Woods in a single match.
Then there is searching seven Chests in Shifty Shafts or Lonely Lodge for Five Battle Stars, dealing 100 damage while riding in a vehicle and completing three Explosive Weapon Eliminations.
The last two challenges have been rated as hard by Epic Games and will, therefore, provide 10 battle stars with each when completed.
Finishing the complete list of week 8 challenges providing you with the above-mentioned loading screen.
This loading screen has already been leaked and includes the Ice King performing his Ice Storm spell.
In this image, there is a clue for finding that secret Fortnite banner on PS4, Xbox, PC, Switch and Mobile.
This can be found by looking just below the Ice King’s knee, to a piece of graffiti left on the stone castle wall.
Etched into the turret are map coordinates that will help find the secret banner.
By following the coordinates A8, B8, A9 and B9, players should land just south of Frosty Flights, on a black piece of ice.
It should be noted that this new banner will only appear to those players who have completed all the Fortnite Week 8 challenges, and not before.
The big incentive to unlock all the secret battle stars and banners is that in week 9 there will be a special skin unlocked.
This Snowfall skin will be available to all players who have completed all of the previous challenges and will be revealed very soon.
Fans believe that the melting ice in the Fortnite Castle Dungeons will include a chained prisoner, who will also be the special skin.
