Were now in season 8 of Fortnite: Battle Royale Battle Pass challenges and, with big map changes all across the northeast quarter of the island, there are a few that will require a little map assistance. That's what I'm here for!

I have to say I'm excited about what the new locations are going to bring to the game with all the new mountains and several new areas to battle it out in. I'm already envisioning some insane firefights below the volcano and I'm looking forward to dropping into the new Sunny Steps town location. It's sad to see that Wailing Woods is no more and Lazy Links has been replaced by Lazy Lagoon. To make room for it all, Epic also moved The Block location to the west, getting rid of the rundown motel in the process.

This week's challenges give us a mix of old and new, with ones we've seen before and others that rely on the new map changes. Get ready, because here's where we dive into Season 8, week 1 challenges.s8w1challenges

How to visit all pirate camps

To kick off the new season of challenges, our first challenge involves the new pirate camps spread around the island. These do not include the new pirate ship now docked in the new Lazy Lagoon, but are instead some of the older run down houses remodeled with a flag on top. Here's where you can visit all of them:fortnitemappiratecamps

How to search chests at Retail Row or Junk Junction

We've seen these types of challenges plenty of times but be prepared for these locations to be crowded at the beginning of the week. As long as you land at either location a few times, you should have this one done pretty quick.

It appears that in the new season 8 challenge interface overhaul, we no longer have challenges marked as "hard." I would say this one would definitely qualify. Fortunately, you won't have to eliminate players, only deal damage to them with both weapon types. If you focus on using both over few matches, you're bound to get at least a little damage. When you're done with stage 1, follow the directions to move on to the next pairing of weapons.

This one is just as it says and the three locations are pretty spread out. You might be able to take out the snow and desert ones in a single match if you're quick, but here's where all three are on the map:fortnitemapthreegiantfaces

How to use a Volcano Vent in different matches

Volcano vents have sprung up around the new volcano and they're great for launching yourself into the sky for a quick getaway or to close the distance the storm circle. They are all in the upper right quarter of the map, but here's every location:



The vents are all over the area, just make it a point to use them often to complete the challenge.Jason Parker/CNET

How to get an elimination with a shotgun, assault rifle and explosive weapon

This challenge shouldn't be too difficult because you're likely to get eliminations over the course of the week with each of these weapons. Just remember that explosive weapons can be anything that explodes, which includes grenades, dynamite and even rocket launchers.

This one is pretty self explanatory and shouldn't be too hard to complete. Your safest bet here will probably just be to take pot shots at X-4 Stormwings overhead. That way they are unlikely to see you. Whatever method you choose, you only need 200 damage so it shouldn't take too long.
