Fortnite‘s weekly challenges for Season 7 are over and the game is now preparing to make the transition to Season 8. However, that doesn’t mean there are no challenges to undertake at all–quite the opposite in fact. Developer Epic is keeping the train rolling with the Overtime Challenges, which begin today, February 14, and unlock every three days up until February 23. In an unexpected twist, however, completing these challenges not only nets you experience and the odd cosmetic unlock, but also a free Season 8 Battle Pass.
To get the new Battle Pass at no cost you just need to complete 13 of the Overtime Challenges, the first set of which are available now. The initial batch ask the player to collect coins in the Creative Islands, seek out ammo boxes or treasure chests, and drop onto the island as a duo and place in the top 15. As you complete the challenges, you’ll also unlock skins from Fortnite Season 7 at the five, 10, and 15 challenge mark. You can see the full list of challenges below.
Fortnite Overtime Challenges
- Collect Coins in Featured Creative Islands (15) — 500 XP
- Search chest or ammo boxes at a motel or an RV park (7) — 500
- Place Top 15 in Duos with a friend (3) — Wrap
Epic has also released update 7.40 for Fornite and the full patch notes alongside it. The Valentine’s Day event is one of the big new additions introduced in the update, but there’s also a new weapon, and the ability to gift an item. You can read the full list of changes, tweaks, and additions in the Fortnite update 7.40 patch notes.
It is expected that Season 7 of Fortnite will end on February 28, so you’ve got a little more time to complete any outstanding challenges. If you need a hand, check out our comprehensive Fortnite Season 7 challenges roundup, which collects all our tips and guides into one, convenient location.
Given that the Overtime Challenges will be available until February 27, we expect Season 8 will begin on February 28. Before that, however, Epic is expected to hold two double XP weekends; the first is set for February 15-17, while the second takes place February 22-24.
