He's the Week 8 Challenges for Fortnite, available from today. Read up and be prepared for these latest tasks:

Fortnite's Week 8 Challenges go live on Thursday, April 12 - and as of the latest update to this article, that's today. Now Fortnite Patch 3.5 is here, we're ready to tackle these latest challenges and get some sweet new rewards.

Completing these challenges will reward you with XP and Battle Stars, enabling you to work your way up to tier 100 and unlock the high Octane Glider.

You'll need to own the Season 3 Battle Pass to earn these rewards.

The Fortnite servers were down when these challenges were first supposed to drop, but now they're back online.

  • The new vending machines let you trade resources for weapons and items. Here's a map to all vending machines in Fortnite.
