Players who have completed nine full sets of weekly challenges in Fortnite’s season eight can now grab a new secret Battle Star and a free Battle Pass tier.
Week nine challenges are set to be revealed today, which means seven new challenges are coming to be completed. As usual, completing them will let you progress through the Discovery challenges and reveal a new loading screen for season eight. This is the loading screen that hides a hint for where to find this week’s secret Battle Star.
Players can only see this item on the Fortnite island if they complete nine full sets of weekly challenges, which means that completing week nine alone isn’t enough. After doing so, the Battle Star can be seen in any Fortnite: Battle Royale game mode except for Playground.
The week nine loading screen shows Peely and Jonesy inside the volcano trying to loot some legendary treasure chests. There’s a drawing on the wall in the background between them, and it shows a ship with a Battle Star icon. This means players should look for a ship, and for the week nine Battle Star on it.
There are two ships around the Fortnite island: One at the viking village southeast of Snobby Shores and another at Lazy Lagoon. The drawing shows a ship with a single sail and what seems to be a horse head on one of its ends. That only resembles the ship on the viking village hill, so that’s where players should look for the Battle Star.
