Fortnite has a hidden series of challenges for Battle Pass owners

Epic Games

Fortnite offers a series of challenges to players who purchase the Battle Pass for each season, and you unlock items and cosmetics by completing them. Developer Epic Games has introduced the “Blockbuster Challenge” in season four, and each week’s Blockbuster Challenge requires you to finish all of the challenges from the previous week.

It looks like there’s a surprise at the end for players who are good, or dedicated, enough to do so, but there is also a puzzle hidden in the rewards for each week’s challenges. This is how you solve them.

Where do you find the hidden Blockbuster Vhallenges in Fortnite?

Each week’s Blockbuster Challenge is completed when you’ve completed all of the weekly challenges. When you do so, you’re given a loading screen as a reward for your accomplishment.

That loading screen is actually a puzzle. There is something in each image that will point you toward a hidden star that earns you a full tier on your Battle Pass. Nice bonus, huh?

As always, Reddit has been on the case.

How do you solve the week one hidden challenge?

This is the loading screen you earn when you complete the first Blockbuster Challenge.

If you look closely at the tower behind the characters, you see an outline of a star. That image gives you hints about where to go in the game itself.

Here’s its location on the map:

Here’s what the item looks like in-game. Yay, free Battle Pass tier!

We tested to see if you could get the item without having completed all the necessary challenges, and you cannot. This is a reward for the most dedicated players, it seems.

How do you solve the week two hidden challenge?

This is the loading screen you’re given if you complete all of the challenges in week two, which also finishes the second Blockbuster Challenge. A sharp-eyed player noticed that there are coordinates written on the wall behind the character in the image.

The numbers are A3, A4, B3 and B4. If you go to the area on the map that is between all three of those square on the grid, you find the star. It’s right here:

How do you solve week three’s hidden challenge?

Here’s the loading screen you earn by completing all the challenges in week three, see if you notice anything:

The outline on the loading screen above is on this hill in-game:

And here it is in the game! Remember, you have to have completed all the week three challenges, even if you know exactly where to look.

There it is!

How do you solve the week four’s hidden challenge?

Here’s the loading screen from week four with the outline of the star just barely visible at the top.

As you might be able to tell, this image is from the super villain lair just outside Snobby Shores. You can enter the mountainside base at this location on the map, then find the star on one of the support structures next to the missile, just like in the image.

How do you solve the week five’s hidden challenge?

Here’s the loading screen from this week, which makes the star pretty easy to spot.

As you can see in the background, this week’s star is on top of the giant crab. The crab is located in the south east corner of the island.

Once you see the crab, go up to the top of it’s head, right between the two claws, and this week’s star will be waiting for you.

How do you solve the week six’s hidden challenge?

This is a bit of a weird one because, well, it has moved from where it started. Here’s the loading screen and while the food truck that it’s on top of — as you can see in the loading screen — was once in Greasy Grove, it’s now in the new soccer complex north of Pleasant Park.

Here’s the spot on the map.

Finally, here’s the truck that it’s on top of at the soccer field.

How do you solve the week seven’s hidden challenge?

Here’s this week’s loading screen, which features The Visitor — the reward for all these challenges — walking out of the meteor that hit in Dusty Divot. And that’s exactly where you’ll find this week’s star.

Head to the Divot and go inside the lab and you’ll find a newly exposed space craft with a star on top to give you another free Battle Pass tier.

In case you forgot where the center of Dusty Divot is ... here’s a map?

How do you solve the week eights’s hidden challenge?

We don’t know yet! If the clues are going to be hidden in each of the loading screens you earn through completing the Blockbuster Challenges, we need to wait for each week’s challenges to be posted before the puzzle can be solved. We’ll continue to update this post until the end of the season.

Is there some hidden reward for completing all of these?

There sure is.
