The latest Fortnite 8.30 update is set to launch a new event in the battle royale arena, with the chance to unlock cosmetic items and other rewards through these challenges. The Fortnite Buccaneer’s Bounty event only lasts for one week, and gives players a series of challenges to complete before the end of the event, with a final grand prize for completing every challenge. With an overarching pirate theme to the challenges, it’s time to dust off your skipper’s hat, and grab your finest flintlock. Read on for our Buccaneer’s Bounty challenges cheat sheet.
Fortnite Buccaneer’s Bounty | Challenges Cheat Sheet
Visit a Pirate Camp in different matches
The first of the Fortnite Buccaneer’s Bounty challenges is now live for players to complete, while the remaining three challenges are scheduled to release every day from now, spreading the event across the week. To complete the first challenge, you’ll need to visit a pirate camp in ten separate games, which is easy enough with our guide to the Fortnite pirate camp locations. As you’ll need to play ten different games to complete the challenge, we recommend landing at one of the locations first, although be aware that these may be popular locations for other challenges.
Completing the first Fortnite Buccaneer’s Bounty challenge will earn you the uncommon Plunder glider, a part of the Scallywags set, which seems to be emblazoned with the likeness of a kraken. Make sure that you log in this week to complete the remaining three challenges, however, or you won’t have a chance to unlock the other cosmetics. With a Pirate Parrot spray, a Nautical Star banner, and an extra 1,000 XP spread across the other challenges, in addition to the Boobytrapped emote, this event is a great method to unlock some free cosmetics for the battle royale. May you be blessed with strong winds, sailor.

You see, it’s a little complicated, as you’ll first need to track down a rare Treasure Map!
