What are the Fortnite week 1 challenges for season 8? We have already had our first glimpse at the eighth season of Epic Games’ battle royale game, so we already have a good idea of the first weekly challenges we can expect. So, here’s what we know about the Fortnite season 8 week 1 challenges so far.

The patch notes for the new season have dropped and we know that Lava will be added – which deals 1 damage per touch and causes players to bounce – and that Fortnite Volcanic Vents will boost players into the sky in a similar way that the Rifts do. But, before we worry about all that, we’ve got some Fortnite season 8 week 1 challenges to tackle.

Speaking of challenge-based news, you can now get your teammates to help you out with your weekly challenges with the new Fortnite Party Assist feature. This means that players in your party can help you to progress your plush new Battle Pass to help you earn brand new season 8 Fortnite skins and cosmetics. But, what are the first batch of challenges we’ll be facing? Here’s what we think the Fortnite season 8, week 1 challenges will be.
