Fortnite Blockbuster: How To Find the Hidden Battle Star


If you were looking for a little motivation for completing the Week 3 challenges in Fortnite, maybe the second Blockbuster challenge will sway that motivation! Especially since each entry into the Blockbuster saga seems to reveal key parts of a much bigger picture. With the latest update in Fortnite now live, things are about to get juicy!

First and foremost before diving in for that free Battle Star, you need to have completed all of week 3's challenges. This is the motivation needed to get cracking and collect your loot. Below are the challenges waiting to be completed:

  • Watch a Match Replay – 5 stars
  • Deal damage with Pistols to opponents – 5 stars
  • Search Chests in Lonely Lodge – 5 stars
  • Search Rubber Duckies – 5 stars
  • Follow the treasure map found in Salty Springs (HARD) – 10 stars
  • Sniper Rifle Eliminations (HARD) – 10 stars
  • Eliminate opponents in Tilted Towers (HARD) – 10 stars
  • Revive players - 5 Stars

Once that's out of the way, it's time to get started on the free additional unlock to get an exclusive surprise. It's fairly easy to get, simply locate the hill to the south-west of Fatal Fields. The star itself is hard to miss, simply walk up to it in order to interact, and collect it for yourself.

The challenge week 4 loading screen has also been revealed, seen above, and is just one more part to the bigger mystery that Epic Games has nestled into their online title.
