Along with the newly added Reboot Van, Fortnite introduced the Buccaneer’s Bounty Event today. Running from now until April 15th, each day will feature a different Limited Time Mode. Inside each mode will be a new challenge, with another unlocking each day thereafter.
With Season 8 came the on-theme pirate camps, which are found all across the island. For today’s challenge, you need to visit a pirate camp in ten different matches.
Also, according to data miners, visiting pirate camps will also be a Week 7 challenge in the Battle Pass that arrives tomorrow.
Here is how to complete the first Buccaneer’s Bounty challenge:
There are 7 different pirate camp locations on the Fortnite island. Each one is spread out fairly well across the map, making it easy to land at one no matter the Battle Bus path.
Once you locate a camp, simply land there and you’ve done all you can do in that match. Of course, the best way to speed through this challenge is to eliminate yourself immediately after landing. Building up a twelve-story staircase and falling off is the best method. But remember, leaving the match outright will discount your progress.
No matter which camp you land at or how you do it, once you visit ten in different matches you are done.
Epic Games is very fond of giving free loot to players who complete in-game challenges. This event is no different, as each completion will reward something new.
For today, visiting a pirate camp in ten matches will reward the Plunder Glider.
If you unlocked this glider, congratulations! You completed the first challenge of the Buccaneer’s Bounty event. The next challenge will become available tomorrow morning (Eastern time). Although, keep an eye on the timer for this event. You only have 6 days before these challenges end, and after that, they will disappear for good.
We will keep you updated on the new challenges every day! Make sure to stay tuned to Daily Esports for everything Fortnite.
