Fortnite Punchcards: This week's character Punchcards and when the next questlines go live explained

What you need to know about the daily, weekly and character Punchcards.

Fortnite's Punchcards are a timed-limited series of challenges.

During Chapter 2 Season 8, these work differently than Season 7's Legendary Quests.

Completing these steps offers a good amount of XP - making them well worth the effort to complete before the next set arrives.

This page explains this week's Character Punchcards, when the next questlines go live, and how daily and weekly Punchcards work.

Fortnite daily, weekly and character Punchcards explained

Punchcards serve as a way to display groups of challenges and quests across three different categories: daily, weekly and character Punchcards.

fortnite_punchcards_1

The first two are rather straightforward, and usually require for you to either complete a certain number of quests, spend gold bars, or place top 10 with friends, to name a few examples.

Character Punchcards, on the other hand, present five-step questlines. These are tied to the new character collection in Season 8, and present an array of quests to complete, ranging from fairly simple tasks to some a bit more involved.

In order to kickstart a Character Punchcard questline, you need to talk to the NPC in question and accept the quest from the dialogue wheel.

It's worth noting that while daily and weekly Punchcards are time-limited, that doesn't seem to be the case for Character Punchcards.

You're free to tackle them as you go, but do bear in mind that you can't have more than five active questlines at the same time.

You can only accept five questlines at a time.

If you try to pick up an additional quest, you'll be given the option to replace any of the ones you've taken already.

This should cover all the basics, and we'll be keeping this page up to date as weeks pass and Punchcards continue to evolve. In the meantime, you can find what's waiting for you this week below.
