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).

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
