How to solve Fortnite’s weekly hidden Road Trip Challenges for free Battle Pass tiers

Season 5’s Road Trip Challenge has a few hidden surprises for players

Epic Games

Every week, Fortnite’s Battle Pass offers players a new set of challenges to complete. But, at the end of those weekly challenges is a hidden puzzle to solve, thanks to the Road Trip Challenge. Just like Season 4’s Blockbuster Challenge, Road Trip brings players a new secret challenge to be completed after they finish the regular weekly challenges. Finish a week’s worth of Challenges and the Season 5 Road Trip Challenge will reward you with a new loading screen, each with it’s own specific mystery to solve.

Each of the seven Road Trip loading screens has a secret Battle Pass Star hidden in it. Find the location of the star on the in-game map, go there and you’ll be reward with an entire Battle Pass tier instantly, but you’ll have to complete that week’s challenges first. If you have finished your weekly challenges, but don’t quite know where to go to get your star, we’re here to help.

HOW DO YOU SOLVE THE WEEK ONE HIDDEN CHALLENGE?

Here’s the loading screen from the first week of the Road Trip Challenge:

HOW DO YOU SOLVE THE WEEK THREE HIDDEN CHALLENGE?

Who knows? Each Thursday, Epic will bring a new batch of challenges to the game and a brand new loading screen, each complete with its own star.

IS THERE A REWARD FOR COMPLETING ALL OF THESE?

Yep: For Season 4, The Traveler skin was unlocked. For Season 5, there’s no telling what new legendary skin Epic might have planned. No matter what, you’ll have to complete seven full weeks of challenges to get your hands on it.
