Another week, another set of challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale. Here’s how to complete the “Follow the treasure map found in Pleasant Park” challenge for Week 7 of Season 4.

While Fortnite Battle Royale is completely free to play for anyone that wants to play it, a “Battle Pass” can be purchased for 950 V-Bucks (approximately $10.

Each “Season” this Battle Pass gives players the chance to earn a great deal of cosmetic content like emotes, outfits, and more. There are 100 tiers, and numerous rewards associated with them, that are unlocked as you play the game and earn experience points.

This process can be sped up significantly by completing weekly challenges, which have ranged from following treasure maps to earning kills with traps or eliminating a specific number of opponents in a location.

On June 14th for Fortnite developers released the seven new challenges for Week 7 of Season 4. One challenge that will earn you double the amount of XP is to “Follow the treasure map found in Pleasant Park”.

If you’re in a hurry, you can skip the Pleasant Park side of things entirely. The map, shown below, actually sends you to somewhere else entirely.

If you’re unable to read the clues given in the map, the area shown is located just to the South East of Tilted Towers. The exact location is shown on the map below.

All you need to do it visit the location shown on the map below and interact with the star in order to complete the challenge.

It is important to remember that you cannot simply collect the loot and leave the game, you have to actually participate and get eliminated or win the match before the challenge is applied.

If you’re still struggling, ImMarksman on YouTube has uploaded a short video tutorial which can be found below.

Fortnite developer Donald Mustard hid some clues towards future content in the background of his zoom call today and a conveniently-placed G.I Joe figurine has convinced some players a collaboration could be on the cards.

Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration and innovation. It’s a game that knows no bounds and has collided with other characters and universes including Batman, John Wick, Marvel, and Star Wars.

Donald Mustard, the Creative Director at Epic Games, has been busy dropping hints towards future content in recent weeks. In an interview on Marvel’s ‘This Week In Marvel’ podcast, he let it slip that Fortnite and Marvel would be crossing paths time and time again.

However, it seems like that isn’t all he’s got planned. Earlier today, he took part in a zoom interview with video-game journalist Geoff Keighley and dropped some hints towards future content in a creative way.

Donald Mustard used a webcam during the Zoom call. Naturally, that means viewers could see the room he was in. However, instead of covering things up left, right, and center, he embraced it and decided to play a game — the madman scattered clues hinting towards future content around the room.

“That was SO fun and SO inspiring!” he said. “Super cool to hang out with a bunch of awesome people who all LOVE the art of games! Trying to count how many clues to future stuff I’ve hidden into the background of my ‘wfh’ space…” he added.

Fortnite players were quick to pounce and look for clues. There were lots of bits and pieces in the shot, including a couch, a desk, an exercise bike, and paintings on the wall.

However, one item stood head and shoulders above the rest. It’s gained traction on social media and convinced many Fortnite might cross paths with another popular American hero, G.I Joe.

There’s a lot of stuff hidden in the background, including a poster to Star Trek: Into Darkness. However, only one thing sticks out like a sore thumb; a boxed figure of ‘Snake Eyes’ from revived franchise G.I Joe.

Snake Eyes is an important member of the G.I Joe Team. He’s also one of the most popular characters in the story and has been involved in the story behind every G.I Joe movie and series.

Interestingly, a spin-off film dedicated entirely to him called ‘Snake Eyes’ is reportedly on the cards for production in 2021. If anything, it makes a potential Fortnite and G.I Joe collaboration all-the-more believable.

However, not everyone is convinced. Some players hope and believe Fortnite will cross paths with Star Trek instead.

It’s also possible that both of them will come into play at separate points in time. After all, Donald Mustard himself multiple clues were hidden in the background.

Either way, the hype is real, and players can’t wait to see what’s happening next in Fortnite. And, while we wait, there’s still plenty of Marvel content to enjoy too.
