Fortnite Week 8 Challenges: Highest Elevations; Wooden Rabbit, Stone Pig, Metal Llama; And More

Load up Fortnite because there's a new batch of challenges to do. We're now in Season 8, Week 6, which means there are new Battle Stars to be earned. As always, there's a set of challenges that is available to everyone and then another group of challenges that are exclusively for those who have spent V-Bucks on a Battle Pass. Here's what's on tap for this week.

In the free section for Week 6, players will need to find the highest elevations on the island, visit three specific landmarks, and then take out opponents in Lazy Lagoon or Frosty Flight. If you've got the Battle Pass, you'll need to search where the knife points on the treasure map loading screen, land at five different locations as part of a multi-stage challenge, use throwable items, and bring down enemies with either the Flint-Knock Pistol or Boom Bow. Take a look at the full list of challenges below.

The final challenge in the Battle Pass section for Week 6 makes good use of one of the newer additions to Fortnite. The Boom Bow was introduced in Fortnite's 8.20 content update, and uses shotgun shells that explode on impact. Holding fire increases draw strength and will also up the arrow's speed and the damage. Save the World mode gets its own new weapon as well, the Cannonade Launcher.

New Terminator: Dark Fate Images Reveal Arnold Back As The T-800

Like the titular cyborg killing machine, the Terminator movies refuse to die. Despite the commercial disappointment of 2015's Terminator Genisys, the series continues this year with Terminator: Dark Fate. The movie is directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller and hits theaters in November. A new batch of images have now been released.

The pictures show the movie's main cast members. There's original stars Linda Hamilton, who reprises her role as Sarah Connor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800. The new stars includes Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Gabriel Luna (Agents of SHIELD), Diego Boneta (Pretty Little Liars), and Colombian star Natalia Reyes in her first Hollywood movie. They don't exactly give anything away about the movie itself, but it's great to see Hamilton and Schwarzenegger in their iconic roles. Check them out below.

The other big name returning for Terminator: Dark Fate is series creator James Cameron, who produces this one. The movie is reportedly a direct sequel to 1991's Terminator 2 and will ignore the three movies in-between. It hits theaters on November 1, 2019.
