Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts – Fortnite Season 5 challenge location guide

We’ll show you where to head to complete this Week 9 challenge

Hard to believe, but we’re closing in on the last weeks of Season 5 of Fortnite. This week we’re tasked to “Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts.” This is one of the trickier locations, since it requires some elevation, so pay close attention (or just watch the short video above).

You’re aiming for a craggy mountain located just north of Salty Springs. The mountain itself is hard to miss, but the spot you want to head is a little tough to nail down.

We’d strongly recommend approaching from the air (i.e. heading straight for the star as you drop in). You’re aiming for the ledge on the left side of this screenshot:

Note the shape of it and that it just has a rock and a tree. That’ll help to differentiate it from the other ledges.

Once there, walk to the little edge poking out and you’ll nab the star. Easy, right?

The next level of puzzles.

Take a break from your day by playing a puzzle or two! We’ve got SpellTower, Typeshift, crosswords, and more.
