Data miners have leaked all the challenges and the loading screen for Week 8 of Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 1 – called Dive – and there’s a hidden message in the loading screen as part of your challenge set.

Should tradition being anything to go by, we’re already well over halfway through the first season of Fortnite Chapter 2!

Going off the same format used in Season 1-10, there should only be two weeks of Season 1 remaining, however, Epic Games have confirmed that the season has been extended to cover the holidays.

Week seven’s challenge missions are already out, meaning that Battle Pass owners only have a matter of days to unlock this week’s loading screen before the next set of tasks is released.

Throughout the first season, players have had to search for a hidden letter in each loading screen as a ‘bonus’ challenge as part of that week’s mission.

Week 8 looks to be no different, as players will have to complete eight out of the eleven water-themed challenges in order to unlock the loading screen.

The loading screen certainly paints a chaotic scene, with Rippley and Sludge hanging on for dear life. Let us know below how you plan on tackling this week’s missions, as we edge closer to the season-end.
