Visit All Pirate Camps

Season 8 has brought all kinds of new things to the Fortnite world, most notably– pirates! Along with these pirates have come many different pirate skins, weapons, and in this case: “camps”. These new pirate camps look like broken-down wooden structures with a flag on top, and they’re usually surrounded by palm trees. We’ve noted all 7 that you need to find on the map above.

Visit a Giant Face in the Desert, the Jungle and the Snow

Giant Face in the Desert

This face is located just south of Paradise Palms near an abandoned town. Look for a cluster of RVs, and you’ll find the giant face behind them on a cliff wall. Check out the map above for a headstart on this location.

Giant Face in the Jungle

Welcome to the jungle. This new, palm-tree filled part of the map is clustered around the Volcano that just erupted. It’s in the area that used to be Wailing Woods, and you can find the face you’re looking for in the eastern part of it along the cliffs on the coast. We’ve indicated this location on the map above to help you out.

Giant Face in the Snow

We’ve been to the desert, the jungle, and now we’re going to the tundra. We’ve noted this final face location on the map above. If you’re having trouble finding it, keep in mind that it’s on a steep cliffside like the other two faces are.
