Fortnite Week 8 Quests: Where to Find Fortnite Research Books, More

by in Fortnite | May, 7th 2021

We are now in the eighth week of the current season of Fortnite, so it is time for the Fortnite Season 6 Week 8 quests. This latest batch of quests include some interesting tasks to complete, like the Fortnite research books mission and so much more. 

Fortnite Week 8 Quests List

Like the seventh week last week, Epic Games keeps the quests each week marginally fun compared to the past seasons in Chapter 2. While some of the quests this week are pretty typical, others, like Fortnite research books one, are somewhat intriguing. 

You can find the full list of the quests available this week in Week 8 below, listed nicely and neatly for you, so you don’t have to go looking for them in the complicated UI for the battle royale title. 

  • Collect Fortnite research books from Holly Hedges and Pleasant Park
  • Use three launchers from the guardian towers
  • Open two treasure chests at The Spire or the guardian towers
  • Damage an opponent within 10 seconds of landing in a match 
  • Dance in the Durr Burger kitchen 
  • Use a firefly jar at the Pizza Pit restaurant
  • Drive from Durr Burger to Pizza Pit without exiting the vehicle
  • Legendary quest this week: Use fire to destroy various structures

Like always, there are seven normal weekly quests that you can do this week, plus an additional legendary quest that is only available during Week 8. Once the next week rolls around with its batch of missions to complete, there will be a new legendary quest for you to do. 

If you are someone who is looking to unlock the second skin style for the newly released Neymar Jr. skin in Fortnite, you are going to want to do as many of the weekly quests as possible. You need to do 60 of them in total to unlock that sweet second-skin style.

To help you complete the quests this week, we have our full guide to the Fortnite Season 6 Week 8 quests below. We will go over each of the missions this week with locations, tips, and more. Let’s go ahead and get started. 

Where to Find the Fortnite Research Books

Of the normal quests this week, the first one is exciting with the Fortnite research books quest. In this one, players need to go to either Holly Hedges or Pleasant Park and find one of the research books. It doesn’t matter which location you go to, so long as you find the book.

There are around five in Holly Hedges, while Pleasant Park only has three, so we’ll start with the tougher location first. When you get to Holly Hedges, what you will find is that the Fortnite research books are typically found inside of the houses at these locations. 

Simply interact with the book when you find it. You will be good to go for the quest. The first one is on the northwestern side of Holly Hedges, next to the big tree here. The second one is in the house that is just south of this location and is facing east. 

The third one is the house in the northeastern corner of the town, while the fourth one is in the house just south of the soccer field that is now there for the Neymar Jr. challenge. And the fifth and final book at Holly Hedges is found in the house just southwest of the previous one. 

When it comes to Pleasant Park, the first of the Fortnite research books that you can find here is in the central northern house at the top of the town. The next one is in the southeastern corner of the house by the road and facing the soccer field. The eighth and final book is in the house just north of the seventh one. 

From there, we come to the second quest this week. That is to use three of the launchers that are at the guardian towers on the island. Before we go any further, you need to know what the guardian towers are. These are the little towers that branch out from the main Spire location. 

There are several of these around the island. They all branch out in different directions, and you can see the arms of The Spire area on the island. At the end of each of the arms, you will find one of the guardian towers there, complete with nice loot and some guardian NPCs. 

At the top of each of the towers, there is a launcher that acts like the bounce pad in that it shoots you out so you can make it to the next area you need to go to when you are done here. In total, you need to visit three of these towers (it doesn’t matter which) and then use the launcher. 

Fortunately, you don’t have to use all three launchers in the same match, so feel free to take your time with this one and aim to use at least one launcher at one of the guardian towers per match that you do. 

Where to Open Treasure Chests

The third mission this week is a pretty standard one overall as it involves opening up treasure chests. In total, this week, you need to open up two chests, but there is a catch this time. It has to be done at one of two different locations: either The Spire and/or one of the guardian towers on the island. 

Here’s the thing: you will be heading to the guardian towers anyway because you need to do the previous quest involving the launchers. So, at the same time, you might as well open up one of the treasure chests found there, usually next to the launcher. 

Since you only need to open up two chests in total, it is rather easy to do this one paired up with the other mission that we just did since you’re going to need to visit more than two towers anyways for that one. At the same time, though, you could always visit The Spire and do it there, too. Like the last one, you do not have to do these in the same match, so take your time.

This week’s fourth quest is to deal damage to an opponent within 10 seconds of landing in a match. The amount of damage that you deal does not necessarily matter, so even 10 points of damage against an enemy or even your pickaxe hitting someone will count. 

As such, the part that you should focus on is damaging someone within 10 seconds of landing. Ten seconds can feel like a lot of time in the middle of fights, but it is not a whole lot of time to find someone and then damage them, especially if you need to get up close and hit them with your pickaxe. 

Because of this, it is highly recommended that you go ahead and aim for a very busy destination on the map where you see a lot of players heading at the start of the match. Your goal here is to essentially follow someone or make sure to land next to someone at any location. 

Then you need to damage them within 10 seconds. Sure, you could quickly pick up a gun and shoot them for damage, but that might take too much time to complete. In the case of this particular quest, it is best just to hit them with your pickaxe as you have access to that immediately upon landing. 

Where to Dance at the Durr Burger Kitchen

For the next few missions, you will need to know the locations of a couple of restaurants on the island in Season 6. The first of these quests have to do with dancing in the Durr Burger kitchen. First and foremost, we need to know where the Durr Burger restaurant is located. 

It is somewhat in a remote area of the island but easy to find once you know where to look. Check your map. You will find a main road that links up Holly Hedges to the north and Weeping Woods and Slurpy Swamp to the east and south, respectively. 

This road heads south out of Holly Hedges. Just before reaching the swamps and forest, there is a part where you can find the restaurant of Durr Burger on the side of the road. It is a big landmark location that is hard to miss if you ride down the path that goes south from Holly Hedges. 

When you arrive at Durr Burger, the goal of this quest isn’t just to find this location, but it is to go inside and head into the kitchen and dance there. Yes, that’s what you need to do for this mission. So, head into the kitchen in the back and do any favorite dance emote you have until you see the notification that you’ve completed this quest. 

Now, it is time for another food location quest. This time around, you need to use a firefly jar at the Pizza Pit restaurant. To find this one, you are going to need to head to the area of Colossal Crops. This named location is where Frenzy Farms used to be. The Pizza Pit restaurant is just northeast of it. 

You will find the Pizza Pit location right near the border of the more autumn-looking region and the grassy fields of The Orchard and the like. The restaurant is big and hard to miss, like the Durr Burger one. Here, what you need to do is use the firefly jar. 

This is the tricky part, as you will need the firefly jar before you can do anything else. The firefly jar is obtained by interacting with a swarm of fireflies that you find on the map. They are found pretty often, but if you have a hard time getting some, Weeping Woods is always a great place to look. 

Once you have the firefly jar in your possession, head into the Pizza Pit restaurant and use it there to light the place on fire and complete this particular quest.

How to Drive From Durr Burger to Pizza Pit

Now, the next mission is a rather long and arduous one, potentially. But, thankfully, it has to do with the Pizza Pit and Durr Burger locations you already know about. You need to find a vehicle and drive it from Durr Burger to the Pizza Pit without exiting the vehicle once. 

This will be difficult for many reasons, not least because of the sheer distance between these two locations. The other issue is that you only have so much gas in a car. It won’t normally take you to the Pizza Pit when you find a vehicle.

What you need to do is head to a nearby location like Holly Hedges or Sweaty Sands, find a vehicle, gas it up so that you have a full tank before you leave, and then make your way to the Durr Burger restaurant. Once you are there, set off on your journey and make sure never to leave the car once until you arrive at the Pizza Pit location to finish this quest. 

And then last but not least, this week, there is one legendary quest in Week 8 for players to complete for a limited time. It has five stages to it, with each stage increasing the amount needed and offering extra experience rewards for you to collect. 

This week’s legendary quest is to set structures on fire. The first stage is 100 structures needed. Each stage increases the amount by 100 until we have 500 in total for this legendary quest. That is a lot for you to destroy by fire, especially when fire isn’t always the easiest to come by. 

There are a few ways to set structures on fire, including the fire bow, the gas tanks that you can blow up, and the firefly jars. The jars are one of the easiest and recommended. If you are serious about this quest, be sure to do it in Team Rumble with a full squad of friends who also want to complete it as your destructive firepowers will contribute to everyone’s legendary quest.
