In addition to the Fortnite season 8, week 8 challenges that went live earlier this morning - seen here - a new set of Ruin challenges are also available to give players an opportunity to unlock the latest cosmetic items for the newest unlockable Ruin skin for the popular battle royale game. 

For those looking to take on the Ruin challenges, here's what you need to know:

Ruin Challenges

  • Destroy trees (50)
  • Destroy rocks (35)
  • Destroy cars, trucks or RVs (20)
  • Deal damage to opponent structures (10,000)
  • Outlast opponents (1,000)
  • Complete Daily Challenges (5)

As for the rewards, knocking out any of the three challenges seen above will award players with the Dying Light backbling, while completing all of them will give players the Dread Harvesting Tool. By this point, players have already been able to begin the process of unlocking the Ruin outfit by completing a total of 55 weekly challenges. With the outfit unlocked, then the above Ruin challenges can be taken on to unlock even more themed rewards to make Ruin even cooler (hotter?).
