It seems like we are in a deadweek in terms of new content being added to our game. We did receive a patch but it was mostly cosmetics and an enhancement to the Combat Shotgun. This batch of challenges seems pretty boring overall. This challenge will see us opening Sweaty Sands chests and driving through Stark Industries to eliminate Stark Industries’ eliminations. We also have to drive through rifts while eliminating our opponents, jumping or falling, taking headshots at henchmen, robots, visiting named places, and dealing damage using Assault Rifles and Sniper guns!
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 Week 8 is here. This means that we are only two weeks away of completing all the challenges, if they follow their previous seasons. This season is expected to last longer so they may throw in some extra events, especially with Halloween approaching. FortnitemaresThe game is moving closer to each other. We’ll have to wait at most another week to find out more about future additions to the game. Unfortunately, nothing has been confirmed.

Below is a cheat sheet that will show you where to find the information needed to complete these challenges. Credit to squatingdog for the image.
Sweaty Sands, located in the northern portion of the map has quite a few chests all over the area. For chest collecting challenges, I recommend Team Rumble! Credit to Fortnite.gg for the map.
Although driving a car through arift seems difficult, it is actually very simple. You can find the Stark Industries map by following the road that runs east from Doom’s Domain. You will find a few cars if you land near the bridge. There will also be a nearby rift. You can grab one of the vehicles and drive through it. You can also watch this video to help you find it.
It’s not difficult to eliminate opponents by jumping or falling. If you can land in close proximity to your opponents and jump while holding your shotgun, it’s easy to accomplish in Team Rumble. Headshots of Stark Robots and Doom Henchmen are easy. However, you should use an Assault Rifle to make it count towards your damage group challenge. The Doom’s Domain henchmen and Stark Industries Stark Robots will be visible.
For the five designated locations, the fastest way would be to fly to the helicopter located north of Misty Meadows. Fly to Mistay Meadows and head east to Catty Corner. From there, go northwest to Lazy lake, east to Retail Row, then north to Dirty Docks. If you missed the helicopter at the lake you can still grab one from Stark Industries or fly south to continue the journey backwards.
Once you’re done, grab the goodies XP coins for the week!
