There’s a new set of NPCs in Fortnite Season 8, following the v18.20 update that was released overnight. The NPCs in question are Ragsy and Dire, bringing the grand total of Season 8 NPCs over 20. Epic Games will continue to add characters to the island in order to give players more Punchcard quests to complete.
For this article, Dire’s Punchcard quests will be showcased. Dire is a familiar face to players who have played Fortnite since Chapter 1. However, now the wolf is available on the Season 8 map and has five Punchcard quests to give to players. Each of the challenges rewards players with 30,000 XP towards their Season 8 Battle Pass.
Completing Dire’s Punchcard quests in Fortnite
Dire’s quests in Fortnite aren’t too difficult to complete but they will take a couple of matches to complete. The challenges will take players all over the map, so it’s unlikely that it will only take one or even two matches to get them all done. The full set of Punchcard quests for Dire in Fortnite are viewable below.
- Emote at the Weather Station, Fort Crumpet, or Lockie’s Lighthouse
- Damage wildlife with a melee weapon (0/40)
- Destroy a dumpster at Lazy Lake or Pleasant Park
- Eliminate Cube Monsters in The Sideways with a melee weapon (0/5)
- Travel on foot in Misty Meadows (0/200)
The challenges require players to visit at least three different POIs in addition to making a pitstop in The Sideways. Players can enter The Sideways in two ways. The first is through an Anomaly, which are purple rifts that are located all around the island. Players can find their locations by looking for purple swirl icons on the map. The second way is through the Sideways Zones, which are huge orange/purple bubbles that take over an entire POI. Players can simply enter these on their gliders.
The last challenge, aside from the ones in POIs, is to damage wildlife. When players have completed each challenge, they’ll earn 30,000 XP.
