Back in my day, miners used to make sure you're not cold, but mining seems to focus mostly on Fortnite. Oh well, the brave miners have rustled up some information on Fortnite: Battle Royale's Week 8 set of challenges, so let's dig in.

First Fortnite Week 8 challenge is using a Vending machine. The challenge is worth five Battle Stars and is barely a challenge, to be perfectly honest. Even more so knowing that we've got your back with a nice little map.

Vending machines can be found all over Fortnite island and, as you probably know yourself, you can use them to exchange materials for weapons. Prices will range from 100 units of ore for Common items to 500 for Legendary.

Next up is dealing 1,000 damage with explosives - both in form of weaponry and the remote kind. May we recommend guided missiles? Actually scratch that - save those for driving around Fortnightia. Anyhow, the challenge is worth five Battle Stars. 

Third challenge is searching through seven Chests in Snobby Shores. I seem to recall devs cutting on the amount of available loot in the Shores, but a few drops should be enough to take care of it.

Visiting three Taco Shops in a single Fortnite match may be worth five stars, but will be more difficult than it sounds. Three words - Tilted, Towers, No. Work your way around the rest.

Searching between Three Boats actually refers to Loot Lake, seeing as how the island in the middle is the place you're looking for. There's not much to say other than good luck getting those 10 Stars, because you'll sure need it with the amount of company you'll have on the Lake.

Five kills with Assault Rifles and fragging three enemies in Dusty depot completes Week 8 Challenges. Even though they're classified as Hard, they're most certainly not but we're not complaining - each of the challenges earning you 10 Stars.

Of course, completing all the Week 8 challenges earns Fortnite Battle Pass holders saucy 4,000 of experience. Happy hunting.

The data mined was done by Fortnite Tracker Network, whereas the actual Week 8 Challenges begin on Thursday, 12 April 2018.
