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).

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
