Cheat Sheet and Tips on How to Complete Week 1 Challenges Quickly

The challenges for Week 1 Season 8 are about medium difficulty.  Let’s start with the most difficult challenges for Week 1.  Dealing 200 damage to an opponent driving a vehicle is pretty difficult mainly due to the number of chances you have in finding an opponent on a vehicle.  Look for enemies on driftboards and Quad Crashers.  You’ll need guides for the visit a giant face in the desert, snow and jungle as well as the pirate camp locations, lucky for you we have several on our site as well as the handy map below.  Finding seven chests at Junk Junction or Retail Row is simple, expect lots of traffic though.  The easiest way to get the eliminations or deal damage is in Team Rumble, people are fighting on a constant basis and you get unlimited re-spawns.
