Here is one of the flaming rings to jump through as a Fortnite Chapter 2 season 1 challenge. 

Epic Games

Fortnite Chapter 2 may be a refresh of the game, but the challenges are the same as last season. A set of tasks is available to players each week, giving them experience points when completed. Points acquired increase a player's tier level, which unlocks more content, especially if they have a season Battle Pass. 

Challenges are added every Thursday during the season. This week, there's also a set of challenges available from the Fortnitemares update that went live Tuesday.

This week's challenges are based around the new waterways in Fortnite Chapter 2. More specifically, multiple tasks will take place in Dirty Docks, which is found on the west side of the island. Most of the challenges are self-explanatory, but a few require a little guidance. 

Visit the Boat Launch, the Coral Cove, and the Flopper Pond

These three locations are some of the many new landmarks added in Fortnite Chapter 2. See the map below on where to go to complete this challenge.

Jump a Motorboat through 3 different flaming rings

Motorboats were added in the new chapter and are found at various docks across the island. For this challenge, there are several flaming rings scattered across the map. Players will need to use the boat's boost to fly through the rings and luckily, they are fairly close to one another. Check the map below on where all the rings are located.

Deal any damage to opponents by shooting exploding gas pumps

Gas stations can now to do lethal damage if you fire on the gas pumps to catch them on fire. The problem is players are unlikely to stick around next to a pump that is about to explode. There is an easier way to complete this challenge according to one Reddit user. If you get in a fight near a gas station, try to down a player. When they're crawling around, pick them up and take them near a pump. Shoot it a few times to cause it to explode and voila.
