Chapter 2, Season 7 is currently set to end on September 12th 2021

Leaker HYPEX has confirmed that Fortnite will be moving to Unreal Engine 5 for Season 8. The move in engines comes after the Unreal Engine 5 reveal which happened in May of 2020.

It’s currently unknown how the change of engines will affect Fortnite gameplay but it’s likely Epic will be adjusting any major changes to a minimal level to avoid extreme differences in playstyle for the new season.

Fortnite will be the first game to use Unreal Engine 5 so nobody knows what to expect when it comes to changes players will notice. The new engine should improve Fortnite’s overall quality in everything from lighting to models, opening the door for even crazier events, seasons and cosmetics.

Unreal Engine 5’s controls will likely be used heavily in Fortnite’s to-be-released modding mode, codenamed “Project Valkyrie”.

All of the biggest Fortnite data-miners have stated that players that attend the Araian Grande concert during any of the five slots will get themselves a free umbrella. We don’t know the name of the umbrella or how long it’ll take for Epic to hand them out, but we do know what it looks like.

Fortnite: Where to Emote in front of a Camera at Believer Beach or Lazy Lake

Here is where you need to emote in front of a camera at Believer Beach or Lazy Lake in order to complete the Fortnite Week 8 Challenge.

New Epic challenges are released every week on Thursdays in Fortnite and completing these challenges is an easy way to earn additional XP to get more Battle Stars. These challenges are usually quite easy to complete but there are some that may require some help if you don’t know where to go.

One of the Epic challenges for Week 8 requires you to emote in front of a camera at Believer Beach or Lazy Lake and this article will show you exactly where you need to go to save you some time!

In order to complete this challenge, you only need to dance in front of one camera at either location, so you can pick the best one, depending on the Battle Bus path in the match you join. The camera that is located in Believer Beach can be found on beach, on the right side of the boardwalk. We have marked the exact location on the map below:

Coral Cove, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack in Fortnite Locations

Here’s where Coral Cove, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack are in Fortnite chapter 2 season 7.

The Fortnite week 8 epic quests going live in a couple of hours but thanks to data-miners, we know exactly what the challenges are. We also know the locations of all the week 8 artifacts which we have a dedicated article for.

One of the challenges requires players to visit Coral Cove, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack. In previous challenges, players have the option in which they’d like to visit out of the three provided locations as they only need to visit one.

However, this challenge requires players to visit all three locations. Players may not know the whereabouts of these locations especially Base Camp Golf and Unremarkable Shack. Here’s a quick guide to show you all of the locations.

Base Camp Golf Fortnite Location

If you’re wondering where Base Camp Golf is in Fortnite, you’re not alone. You’ll find it southeast of Catty Corner on the large Snowy hill. Here’s the exact location marked on the map.

Fortnite Base Camp Golf Map Location

Fortnite Unremarkable Shack Location

This is another location where players might not know where it is on the season 7 map. If my memory serves me correctly, there’s only been one or two challenges that have required players to know where the Unremarkable Shack is in Fortnite.

You can find it on the north side of the map on the small separate island near Lockie’s Lighthouse. Here’s where it is:

Where is Unremarkable Shack in Fortnite

Visit Coral Cove

Unless you’re a new Fortnite player, at this point you should know where Coral Cove is. However, we’ve included it anyway and you’ll find the unnamed located west of Coral Castle.

Remember, all you need to do is visit Coral Castle, Base Camp Golf, and Unremarkable Shack. You don’t need to dance at these locations or perform any other action apart from visiting them.
