Load up Fortnite because there’s a new batch of challenges to do. We’re now in Season 8, Week 6, which means there are new Battle Stars to be earned. As always, there’s a set of challenges that is available to everyone and then another group of challenges that are exclusively for those who have spent V-Bucks on a Battle Pass. Here’s what’s on tap for this week.
In the free section for Week 6, players will need to find the highest elevations on the island, visit three specific landmarks, and then take out opponents in Lazy Lagoon or Frosty Flight. If you’ve got the Battle Pass, you’ll need to search where the knife points on the treasure map loading screen, land at five different locations as part of a multi-stage challenge, use throwable items, and bring down enemies with either the Flint-Knock Pistol or Boom Bow. Take a look at the full list of challenges below.

Visit The Five Highest Elevations On The Island
Instead of spending lots of time trying to figure out what the highest elevations on the island are, head over to our guide, which will tell you exactly where to go. Thankfully, this challenge is pretty easy to complete, as the majority of the locations are close together.
Search Where The Knife Points On The Treasure Map Loading Screen
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a challenge like this one, but it can be tricky to figure out exactly where you need to go since the treasure map in question isn’t labeled. This means you’ll need to be intimately familiar with the layout of the Fortnite island. Or you can take a look at our guide.
The final challenge in the Battle Pass section for Week 6 makes good use of one of the newer additions to Fortnite. The Boom Bow was introduced in Fortnite’s 8.20 content update, and uses shotgun shells that explode on impact. Holding fire increases draw strength and will also up the arrow’s speed and the damage. Save the World mode gets its own new weapon as well, the Cannonade Launcher.
Once you’re done with Week 6’s challenges, you may want to finish up any incomplete challenges from previous weeks. Use our Season 8 Challenge Guide for help with that and you’ll be well on your way to unlocking all the cool new Fortnite skins and other Battle Pass rewards from Season 8.
