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!


Has LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Fans of YouTube star Lannan ‘LazarBeam’ Eacott have been questioning whether or not he’s quit playing Fortnite after not uploading a gameplay video in a good while. 

The original rise of Fortnite saw creators from across the globe explode in popularity regardless of whether they were focused on livestreaming on Twitch or making videos for YouTube.

However, some of the original big names like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, among others, have turned away from Fortnite and decided to play games like Valorant and Warzone. 

Plenty of creators still remain, though, they have issues with a lack of updates, and how the competitive scene is being run, to name just a few problems. Now, fans of LazarBeam have been asking if he is following the likes of Ninja and Tfue, and walking away from Fortnite. 

Lazarbeam is one of the most popular Australian creators around.

Did LazarBeam quit Fortnite?

Even though his fellow Aussies like Fresh, Lachlan, and LoserFruit have carried on playing Fortnite, LazarBeam hasn’t uploaded a YouTube video about it since mid-December. Though, he has tweeted about it and played the battle royale since.

In that time of not uploading a Fortnite video, he’s made videos on Among Us and Spellbreak, while also uploading his usual meme reactions from TikTok, as well as a more personal video reflecting on how 2020 went for him. 

In a recent stream though, he did say he was quitting the game after uninstalling. “I’ve decided to uninstall Fortnite. I’ve quit the game. I’m quitting it right now,” LazarBeam said. “I’m done forever.” Though, it’s hard to say if he’s being totally serious, given that he is one of YouTube’s funniest creators.

Will LazarBeam return to Fortnite?

It could be the case that he returns to Epic Games’ battle royale soon, perhaps once a new update is released. 

Other content creators have done similar, taking breaks because the devs aren’t rolling out as many regular updates as they used to, and the game feels a bit stale. But, we’ll just have to wait and see if that’s the case for LazarBeam whenever v15.30 launches.
