One of the many new map additions in Fortnite Season 8 is the Donation Boards scattered across the island. These boards are meant for players to help contribute to the ongoing war effort against the Cube Monsters who reside in The Sideways. Players can make donations (Gold Bars) to the boards and in exchange, unlock some pretty cool rewards for the entire player base of Fortnite.
Essentially, the Donation Boards are ways for players to unlock in-game items for themselves and every other player. Epic Games will release a new item on the Donation Board every week and if Fortnite players donate enough Gold Bars in the week, then that item becomes unlocked in Season 8. For players wanting to contribute and help themselves and other players out, they can look below to see where each Donation Board is.
All of the Donation Boards in Fortnite
For this week specifically, Epic Games has released the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG through the Donation Boards. Players can insert their Gold Bars into the slot of the weapon they want to see added to Fortnite Season 8.
Epic describes the Combat variants of the weapons as powerful with a tight bullet spread. However, this comes at a cost of recoil. Whichever weapon players want, they’ll need to know where they can donate their Gold Bars first.
When players find a Donation Board, which is basically a yellow box next to a billboard, they can see the items currently up for unlocking. From here, players can donate 50 Gold Bars at a time to fund whichever item they want to unlock. In this case, it’s either the Combat Assault Rifle or Combat SMG. Whichever weapon becomes 100% funded first is the weapon Epic Games will add to Season 8. It’s unknown if the weapon not unlocked disappears forever or will return at a later date.
