Fortnite Season 5 Week 8 is here. Take a look at all of the challenges and how to complete them.
Fortnite Season 5 is chugging along, and a new week means a new list of challenges to complete. There’s a ton of XP up for grabs in Season 5, and this week brings us a much-needed break from searching specific locations for gnomes, coins, and similar items.
This week, we’ll be able to complete all of these challenges in Team Rumble with little effort. If you’re lucky enough, you may even be able to complete most of the Epic challenges in a single match.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Destroy apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market (3)
- Drive a car through the corn field at Steel Farm (1)
- Deliver a truck to Sunflower’s Farm (1)
- Pistol Damage (250)
- Collect Gold Bars (500)
- Blow up a gas pump (1)
- Distance traveled Gliding (3,500)
All of these challenges are easy to complete as long as you know where to go. Collecting Gold Bars is as easy as breaking a few couches and beds while eliminating enemies. If you’re not in a rush to finish it, it will happen over the course of a few hours of play.
Orchard Farmers Market and Steel Farm are the two areas surrounding what used to be Frenzy Farm. The Orchard is to the North and Steel Farm is to the East. Here they are on a map, for reference.
The rest of these challenges should be easy enough to complete, which is always good news. Challenges can be fun to grind, but not week after week. This time, we got a nice break with some easy challenges.

Predator has finally entered the Fortnite universe in Season 5. Here’s how to find his apartment in Hunter’s Haven to unlock his built-in emote.
Fortnite players thought that Season 4 was the season on crossovers but quickly realized that Season 5 would be even more jam-packed. Predator is only the most recent of several crossovers that have come to Fortnite in the form of bounty hunters.
You can take a look at our full guide to unlocking the Predator Battle Pass skin here. Once you battle your way through hordes of enemies at Stealthy Stronghold and unlock the skin, your mission has only begun.
Next, you’ll need to complete several quests as Predator, including using his new Cloak Device and visiting his apartment at Hunter’s Haven.
Predator’s apartment location
Hunter’s Haven is the home to all of the bounty hunters who have entered Fortnite. Several characters have set up shop, here, and Predator is no different.
You can find his new apartment in the northeast corner of the POI. Inside, you’ll find a command center complete with a home for Predator’s armor – fitting, as the Bio Helmet Online emote allows you to remove Predator’s mask.
Take a look at the exact location on the map below.
Once you find his apartment, you can move onto the other Predator tasks, such as completing a bounty while wearing the skin.
All of these challenges award players with XP to go along with the cosmetics, so they’re worth competing if you want to unlock all of the enlightened skins for the season. The real task will be eliminating Predator in the first place, as Stealthy Stronghold has just become the hottest drop on the map.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are here. Take a look at where to find houses in Slurpy Swamp.
The Week 7 challenges for Fortnite Season 5 are relatively easy when you compare them to last week’s but there are s7till a couple of challenges that require some searching.
One of these has players looking for houses in Slurpy Swamp. At first glance, this challenge seems relatively easy – until you realize that the Slurpy Swamp POI is filled with factories.
This challenge requires you to leave the main POI and move south – more towards the Flush Factory area. Here are six locations that you can visit. Keep in mind, you only need to go to three of them.
As always, Team Rumble will offer you the best chance of success. Not only will you be relatively undisturbed in your search, but the 100% spawn rate of chests in this mode means you’re guaranteed to walk away with some loot.
You could complete this in any mode, as these houses typically offer a safe place to land. You’ll also have the benefit of free shields from the water surrounding Slurpy Swamp.
We have a full guide for all of these challenges here if you need it. We’ll be back next week with guides for the Week 8 challenges as well.

The Fortnite Season 5 Week 7 challenges are live. Here’s a guide to the most difficult challenge: collecting books from Holly Hedges and Sweaty Sands.
Epic have been taking it easy on us this season, with only a handful of weekly challenges requiring us to search the map for specific items.
Unfortunately, the Season 5 Week 7 challenges include one of these, requiring you to collect books in Sweaty Sands and Holly Hedges. We did the leg work for you so you can get back to grabbing Victory Royales.
Fortnite Holly Hedges & Sweaty Sands book locations
There are three books in each location, but you only need to find five of them. Since Sweaty and Holly are near one another, you can easily complete this challenge in a single game of Team Rumble.
The book locations are as follows:
- Ground floor of the yellow house in the northwest
- The tall building in the southeast corner
- The building in the northeast corner (dog house)
- The building next to the RV park
- The bookshelf inside the tall apartment building
- The building in the southeast corner
Again, Team Rumble is the best way to complete this challenge if you want to get it out of the way. Of course, you can always land at these locations in a normal match, but that’s only making it more difficult for yourself.
