Season 5 Week 8 Challenges Guide
Fish are extremely common to find and eat - you'll want to head to any river or lake and you'll spot clusters of them in the water.
Throw a fishing rod or shoot a harpoon gun into them to pull out a fish.
This is probably easier done in Solo as you'll have more time to fish and less competition.
Destroy apple and tomato produce boxes at The Orchard Farmers Market
For the unaware, the Orchard Farmers Market is located between Colossal Coliseum and Steamy Stacks in the North-East of the map.
Once, you're there, you'll see two produce stands outside the front of the store.
Simply destroy them with a pickaxe or weapon.
Drive a car through the corn field at Steel Farm
So where is Steel Farm? You've probably been to it a few times.
It's located to the East of Colossal Coliseum
While cars are located all over Fortnite, the easiest one is the truck located at Farmer Steel’s farm.
The truck may either be missing or clamped in Team Rumble, so a solo game is probably the best bet.
All you need to do is take it for a spin through the cornfields located in the same area.
Deliver a truck to Sunflower's Farm
This next challenge can be done straight after the first one!
You'll want to head to Sunflower's Farm with your newly acquired truck.
Sunflower's Farm is highlighted in yellow!
There is no direct way across the water, so you'll either need to go around, build a ramp or try your luck driving through the water.
An easy way to do this challenge is to jump into a Team Rumble game and pick up a rare pistol.
You only need 250 damage, which is roughly 2-3 kills; it should be easy enough to do in one game.
Collect Gold Bars
This is really easy to do. Gold Bars can be collected from destroying beds, sofas and washing machines usually produce gold bars.
You can also collect them off of players you've killed and by completing contracts set by NPCs.
Blow up a gas pump
There are gas pumps located all over Fortnite, so it isn't difficult to .
If you're struggling to find your nearest one, get in a vehicle and the map will highlight gas stations for you to fill up.
Find your nearest one, go up to the gas pump and shoot it repeatedly until it blows up - but be careful, it could take you down if you're too close.
Distance travelled gliding
This is a really easy challenge - simply drop into a game and as soon as you get out of the bus, open your glider and just float around.
If this isn't your style, it's easiest to do in Team Rumble as you can open your glider whenever you want.
