Fortnite Season 8, Week 5 is here and with it is another challenge involving the Pirate Camps. This week is a fairly straightforward one that requires three eliminations at a Pirate Camp. It doesn’t need to be the same Pirate Camp for all three eliminations or in the same game.
This means the best strategy for completing this challenge is to simply beeline for the closest Pirate Camp to the Battle Bus at the start (as most people jump out towards the start of the match) and trying to pick up a few kills on unarmed people there. This challenge will be easiest the earlier in the week as everyone scrambles to complete it. This does also mean more competition for a weapon as well as targets.
If you still haven’t completed the Pirate Cannon challenges, this is a prime time to try and knock them out due to so many people congregating around these locations. Below is a map with all the Pirate Camps documented as well as screenshots of each location.
Fortnite Pirate Camp Locations Map
Three of the camps are in the older region of the map, one is the snow biome, one in the desert biome, one in the jungle and one on the edge of the jungle and old map biome. They’re all relatively spread out and often occupied at the beginning of the match as all the curious players come to check out the changes. All the forts are identifiable by the fact they have a pirate flag with a Kraken being flown at their peaks (Lazy Lagoon has one, but isn’t counted as a ‘camp).
Fortnite Desert Border Pirate Camp
This is the most imposing pirate camp of the bunch. South of Retail Row where the grassland bleeds into the desert, there is a collapsed bridge. The buildings on the desert side of the bridge has been built up into a large pirate fort (it’s a fort not a camp, it’s massive). You can find it at H7 on the main map’s grid.
Fortnite Jungle Lazy Lagoon Pirate Camp
In the new biome there is a new named location called Lazy Lagoon. To the northwestern side of this lagoon (east of The Block) is a pirate camp atop a hill, overlooking the same lagoon. E2 on the main map’s grid.
Fortnite Jungle Volcano Pirate Camp
This pirate camp is also situated in the new biome. Particularly hard to miss this one as it’s halfway up the volcano’s incline on the southwestern side (just north of the lava river), sitting in plain sight. Just inside H4 on the main map’s grid.
Fortnite ‘Old World’ Pleasant Park Pirate Camp
To the west of Pleasant Park is a spooky forest that had a dilapidated ‘haunted house’. Apparently pirates ain’t ‘fraid of no ghosts, because they’ve co-opted it and built a fort over the top of it. B4 on the main map’s grid.
Fortnite ‘Old World’ Dusty Divot Pirate Camp
Another dilapidated ‘veteran’ building that’s been invaded by the pirate crew. West of the Dusty Divot warehouses is an old destroyed building that’s been there since the beginning of time. On the bright side it’s been fixed up, reinforced and improved thanks to the pirates. You can find it on the border of E5 and F5 on the main map’s grid.
Fortnite ‘Old World’ Salty Springs Pirate Camp
Once again we have another old world building repaired and armed to the gills. Southwest of Salty Springs, northwest of Fatal Fields is a large hill that overlooks both. Traditionally this hill has been home to a rather damaged house for many seasons now– not any longer. You can find this on the border of E8 and F8 on the main map’s grid.
Fortnite Snow Border Pirate Camp
The final pirate camp you’ll find where the grassland becomes snowed over. Southwest of Tilted Towers, northwest of Shifty Shafts, is a small house converted into a pirate camp that overlooks the frozen lake where Greasy Grove used to be. C6 on the main map’s grid.
