Another Thursday means another batch of Fortnite weekly challenges. As per usual, we’re here to take you through all you need to know in order to complete the Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 challenges. This here Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 challenges cheat sheet will surely help you to complete each and every challenge this week. Whether you’re looking to Search chests at Polar Peak or Lonely Lodge, Deal damage to opponents below, or Dance between three ice sculptures, we’re here to help every step of the way.

Complete four of them to bag yourself 9,000 XP. Completing all seven challenges will award you with the Discovery #9 Loading Screen, which you can see above.

Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Stage 1 of 5: Land at Loot Lake
The first of the three free Season 8 Week 9 challenges is a simple one. There are five stages to it, but you will have no trouble at all in completing them all and earning yourself a cool five Battle Stars in the process. The five stages are as follows:
- Stage 1: Land at Loot Lake
- Stage 2: Land at Lucky Landing
- Stage 3: Land at Salty Springs
- Stage 4: Land at Lonely Lodge
- Stage 5: Land at Haunted Hills
Of course, it will take five matches to complete this challenge. Our advice? Land at the named places in order as asked by the game and take on other week 9 challenges at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone.
Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Search chests at Polar Peak or Lonely Lodge
The second of the three free Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 challenges has you find and open seven treasure chests at either Polar Peak or Lonely Lodge. Our advice would be to pair this challenge with the one above (or at least its fourth stage). Land at Lonely Lodge and get to searching for chests.
Alternatively, head inside of Polar Peak’s castle, where there should be plenty of treasure chests waiting for you. Remember to look inside buildings, search high and low, and just about everywhere in any given named area for chests. There should always be plenty to find and open. Look out for other players though! Finding and opening seven chests in either Polar Peak or Lonely Lodge will bag you five Battle Stars.
Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Ride 3 different Volcano Vents without landing
The final free Season 8 Week 9 challenge could prove a little tricky to complete. It tasks you with riding three Volcano Vents in a row without landing. There are areas where this will be easy enough to complete, however.
You should find plenty of Volcano Vents dotted around the Volcano, for example. Another good area where the Vents are plentiful is in the Hotsprings to the northwest of the Volcano. Keep trying and you’re bound to complete this challenge quickly and earn a cool 10 Battle Stars in the process.
Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Stage 1 of 3: Dance between three ice sculptures
The first of the Battle Pass challenges this week is a three-parter. You will need to dance in three exact locations in order to complete this challenge and earn five Battle Stars. The three stages are as follows:
- Stage 1: Dance between three ice sculptures
- Stage 2: Dance between three dinosaurs
- Stage 3: Dance between four hot springs
You don’t need to know the locations of any ice sculptures, dinosaurs, or hot springs to complete this challenge. Instead, check out our map above, which highlights the areas you’ll need to head to (in order) and dance. Simply drop to the areas highlighted above and use any emote to complete the challenge. You can use a dance emote to make it truly authentic, too.
Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Deal damage to opponents from below
The second Battle Pass challenge this week is another straightforward one to understand. All you need to do is deal 500 damage to opponents from below throughout the week. That’s it.
Find yourself a nice little ditch and wait for another player to get near. Better yet, just play the game as normal. If you hit an opponent while you are underneath them (it doesn’t matter if they are jumping or not), then that damage dealt will count towards your total. People are always jumping and elevating themselves upwards via building, so this challenge shouldn’t prove too difficult to complete. Doing so will award you with five Battle Stars. Grab your favorite weapon and get out there.
Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Revive a teammate at a Reboot Van
Completing this Battle Pass challenge will require the use of a relatively new Fortnite feature: The Reboot Van. You only have to revive one teammate at any Reboot Van in order to complete the challenge and earn 10 Battle Stars. You won’t be able to do this in Solos.
Our advice? Head in with a teammate you know and wait for them to get killed. Once they are down, collect their Reboot Card. Head to any of the named locations on the map and you should find a Reboot Van waiting to be used. Check out our Reboot Van locations guide to find them all.
Remember, though, that reviving an ally via a Reboot Van does take some time, so make sure the coast is clear before beginning the process.
Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Challenges | Eliminate an opponent in different matches
The final Season 8 Week 9 Battle Pass challenge is another straightforward one. All you need to do is eliminate an opponent in five different matches. That’s all there is to it. Team Rumble might well be your best friend here. Everyone is far more relaxed in this mode, so it should be easier to eliminate an opponent or two. You’ll get 10 Battle Stars for your trouble, too.
