Fortnite’s Season 8 Week 3 challenges are officially on their way, and a number of Fortnite fans are already confused by a leaked challenge which asks players to “search where the magnifying glass sits on the Treasure Map loading screen.”

The challenges for Week 3 of Fortnite Season 8 sees players once again traverse around the map, while also utilizing some of the game’s transportation methods such as ziplines and The Baller - a brand new vehicle added to the game in the v8.10 update.

One of these challenges sees players forced to locate and visit an area that has been identified by a magnifying glass on the Treasure Map loading screen available inside the game.

The loading screen Fortnite players need to use to complete this challenge.

The treasure map spotted in the loading screen is actually a map of the Fortnite island where players drop into in hopes of securing a Victory Royale. So locating this area shouldn’t be too difficult.

As seen highlighted below, a magnifying glass can be seen placed on the map, showing a location on the map with what appears to be a circle made out of trees as a distinguishing feature.

The magnifying glass is seen marking a location on the map.

This ring of trees can be found just south-west of Polar Peake, located on a small hill just below the sheer cliff face that leads up to The Ice King’s castle.

Here's where you need to go to complete this challenge.

If you're still having issues locating where you need to head to complete this challenge, YouTuber Vinny122004 has uploaded a handy video tutorial that will show you how to complete this challenge.

Once players reach this location, a Battle Star should appear once the challenges go live, with fans just required to interact with the star when it appears to complete the challenge.

Of course, as with any leaks, Epic Games may decide to alter this challenge before they officially go live at around 14:00 GMT (06:00 PST, 09:00 EST).
