NPC Punchcards have replaced the weekly Legendary and Epic quests during Fortnite Season 8. Each new NPC will have their very own set of quests for you to complete for additional XP.

Thanks to some changes made after early balancing issues, these punchcards now award additional XP to take away the grind aspect of completing the Battle Pass.


Nitehare Location in Season 8

Nitehare can be found east of Craggy Cliffs up on the hill next to the house overlooking the IO base. They patrol this area and should show up on your minimap when you get close.

Interact with them and select their questline to get started. You can only have five active quests at any one time meaning you will have to drop one if you're already at capacity. Don't worry though as it can still be taken on later by revisiting the quest giver once you have space again.


How to complete Nitehares Quests in Fortnite

Nitehares questline comes in five stages, each stage is worth 30,000 XP thanks to the recent balance changes. They are;

  • Bounce three times on tires without touching the ground
  • Use an Alien Jump Pad at an Alien Crash Site
  • Travel in an Alien slipstream for 100 meters
  • Damage an opponent with a grenade
  • Get an explosive elimination on a Cube Monster in The Sideways

Stage one is fairly simple, you just need to approach and bounce on some tires three times without hitting the floor. Tire stacks can be found at most garages and petrol stations on the map.

The next stage requires you to find an alien crash site that isn't too hard, they are the orange areas on the map. When you find one, look out for a chrome jump pad with a purple glow. Approach and jump on it to complete stage two.

Stage three also takes place at an alien crash site and you'll need to enter the glowing alien slipstream that surrounds the area. As soon as you're in, you will automatically travel around the slipstream and once you've been in there for 100 meters, the quest is complete.


The final two stages revolve around the damage done with grenades. You can complete stage four by just throwing a grenade at an IO guard. For stage five, you will need to enter The Sideways at one of the rifts on the map and destroy a sideways monster with a grenade.

Once these last quests two are complete, that's Nitehares punchcard done and you should have an additional 150,000 XP to help level up your Fortnite Battle Pass.
