In the new Fortnite Week 8 Challenges that have just gone live for Season 4 Battle Pass holders for the game, one of your tasks is to complete ‘Suppressed weapon eliminations’. In this Fortnite Suppressed Weapons guide, we’ll be walking you through how to find suppressed weapons, as well as the best tips and tricks you need to eliminate opponents and complete the Week 8 Challenge as quickly as possible.
If you instead need help with any other aspect of the Fortnite Week 8 Challenges, including a complete list of what the challenges are, as well as how to complete certain difficult challenges as quickly as possible, make sure to head over to our Fortnite Week 8 Challenges guide.
Fortnite Suppressed Weapon Eliminations Challenge
As you can see in the complete list of Fortnite Week 8 Challenges just below, you’re tasked with eliminating three opponents with a suppressed weapon. Don’t worry about eliminating three opponents in one match of Fortnite Battle Royale, as you can instead accumulate kills with suppressed weapons in seperate games of Battle Royale, instead of all in one go.
So, where can you go about finding suppressed weapons once you’ve landed on the Fortnite Battle Royale map from the Battle Bus? One of the more common weapons to come across is the Suppressed Pistol, first introduced back in the Sneaky Silencer event for Fortnite Battle Royale, but now available in the standard game, in the Epic and Legendary rarities.
It’s a common fact in Fortnite Battle Royale that you’ll come across the best and rarest loot items, such as suppressed weapons, from searching for chests in named locations. This gives you an opportunity to complete two Fortnite Week 8 Challenges in one go, as while you’re searching for a suppressed weapon in chests, you can also be completing the challenge to search chests in Salty Springs. Head over to our Fortnite Salty Springs Chest Locations guide, if you want help on how to find chests in the area as quickly as possible.
Otherwise, it might be a good idea to find a Vending Machine while playing Battle Royale, if you want to be in with a decent chance of obtaining a suppressed weapon. Vending Machines were only recently introduced, and if you can find one of a high rarity level and pay it with enough material parts, it’ll reward you with potentially powerful weaponry, some of which could be suppressed weapons. If you need help on where to locate these machines, head over to our Fortnite Vending Machines guide.

This might be it for our Fortnite Battle Royale guide on how to follow the treasure map found in Retail Row, but make sure to head over to our Fortnite Battle Royale guides hub, or our Fortnite skins page if you need a list of the best items (in our opinion) that you can outfit your character with. We've also got a guide to the Fortnite Week 8 Search Between Challenge.
