Epic Games have run out of letters to hide in the Fortnite loading screens for Season 1, Chapter 2 and have replaced it with a hidden XP boost. If you would like to know where to find it for the Chaos Rising challenges, we’ve got the exact location. 

Previously, week-by-week the game’s developers would hide one of the letters from the game’s name, which is Fortnite of course, inside the loading screen and players would have to use the clue to find it in-game to check off one of the weekly tasks.

Having already given fans the opportunity to find F all the way to E, now there’s something different available – a secret boost of XP. Unlike many other weekly loading screens, however, this one is certainly harder to see than many that have come before it.

So, let’s take a look at where to find it.

Fortnite Week 9 loading screen clue

Epic GamesFortnite Chapter 2’s Week 9 loading screen doesn’t make it easy to spot the clue.

Week 9’s graphic, which can be unlocked by completing at least eight missions from the Chaos Rising challenge list, shows a character staring at a few different television monitors, almost like a scene from inside a hatch in the popular TV series Lost.

One of these small monitors has the answer you’re looking for in terms of the XP Drop location and we’re going to make it that bit easier for you by circling it below.

Once you have identified this location in the image, you’re going to have to search for it across the Fortnite Battle Royale map, but we’ll help you with that as well a little later.

Epic GamesHere you can see that the hidden XP Drop is located right next to Kevin the Cube.

Where is the XP drop hidden in Fortnite?

Knowing what you now know, you’re going to have to find Kevin the Cube in-game and it’s not too difficult to reach. Simply jump off the Battle Bus at the start of a game and head over to Steamy Stacks.

Here, at the power plant landing spot, you can find the cube. It’s located at the very front of the area, in the parking lot, as seen in the graphic below.

Epic GamesGo towards the Kevin the Cube sculpture at Steamy Stacks and you will find the XP Drop waiting to be collected.

Once you have collected the XP Drop you will be rewarded with some bonus XP and will have crossed off another one of the Chaos Rising challenges – of which there are 11 in total.

It’s worth noting that this is only available to Battle Pass owners as well, so if you don’t own it, there’s no way of collecting the hidden drop. Good luck!


New Fortnite Season 5 release date and start time potentially leaked

A Fortnite leaker has seemingly revealed the start date, and time, of Chapter 2, Season 5 amid uncertainty about when it’ll be getting underway. 

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 is almost at its end as players are gearing up to, finally, take on Galactus alongside some of their favorite Marvel characters. 

As with the conclusion of any season, Fortnite players immediately start looking forward to what’s coming next – and everything that Epic Games will have in store for them. Typically, the final day of the battle pass is a good indicator for when a new season might start, but that has been changed a few times in Season 4. 

Add to that the rumors about a potential black hole blackout situation again, and the Fortnite community has been left incredibly confused about Season 5’s start date.

Galactus has been getting closer and closer to the Fortnite map all season – and a battle is on the way.

However, that confusion could be cleared up if one leaker is correct with their claims about the next season. 

ShiinaBR, who has been a reliable leaker in the past, shared some information from another leaker who seems to have the scoop. “Season 5 could(!) start on December 2 at 7 am GMT, according to @tonxim,” she tweeted on November 22. “If this is true, this means the season would start 10 hours after the event takes place!”

If correct, this would mean that Fortnite Season 5 would get underway on December 2nd at 2 am ET/11 pm PT/8 am CET. So, it could be a long day of Fortnite if you factor in attending the live event. 

Additionally, the lengthy downtime would also play into the speculation that another blackout could happen in the meantime – making Fortnite inaccessible until the new season starts. 

Nothing, as of now, has been confirmed by Epic, so it’s worth taking things with a pinch of salt, but it does seem like we’re drawing ever close to the start date of Season 5 being confirmed.
