Fortnite Season 8 is now in its second week. By now you should be more comfortable navigating the latest version of the island, which means completing the weekly challenge should be a little easier to. Week 2's challenges are now available, so if you've got your eye on one of the many new cosmetic unlocks available in the Season 8 Battle Pass, it's time to put in the work to unlock the Battle Stars you'll need to get them.
As always, challenges are grouped into two categories. The first, which is available to everyone, tasks players with completing a multi-stage challenge that begins by landing at The Block. When you've done this, additional challenges in this series will reveal themselves. After that, 200 points of damage need to be done to descending Supply Drops, and three kills must be earned at Salty Springs or Haunted Hills.
The second group of challenges, however, is exclusive to those that have spent V-Bucks on a premium Battle Pass. If that's you, you'll need to start a three-stage challenge by gaining 25 points of health from eating apples, then complete the additional stages. After that, it's a bit of a trek to the furthest north, south, east, and west points on the island. The third challenge in this set requires you to use the new Pirate Cannon to do 100 points of damage, while the final one simply requires you to search a chest in three different named locations in one match.

Along with all the new cosmetic unlocks Season 8 of Fortnite brings, developer Epic Games has also thrown in a new gameplay feature. In the 8.01 update treasure maps became available. By following these, players can hunt down a special chest which contains rare loot. However, treasure maps also make you the target of other players that may be looking to setup ambushes and then steal the loot for themselves. You can see how the new buried treasure feature works here.
As with previous seasons, we'll be creating guides for Fortnite's challenges on a weekly basis. You can stay on top of it all by using our full Season 8 challenges guide.
