The secret Banner is back for Week 8 of the Hunting Party in Fortnite Battle Royale, meaning there’s a free Banner tier waiting to be added to your inventory! Here’s everything you need to know about finding it.

The Hunting Party is an ongoing bonus challenge that began at the start of Season 6 and awards players that complete all of the weeks with a mystery skin when they complete a total of 7 weeks.

That mystery skin was confirmed to be the A.I.M outfit during Week 7 and there’s a good chance that some of you will already have unlocked it, but the Week 8 challenge is still worth completing.

As has been the case on alternating weeks throughout Season 6, the Battle Star has been switched out for a Banner for Week 8, so there’s no free Battle Pass tier this week but you will still get to add something new to your inventory.

As always, the hint for where the item can be found is included in this week’s Hunting Party loading screen. The Week 8 loading screen, which was leaked after the November 14 v6.30 patch, can be seen below with the hint circled.

As you can see, the loading screen is heavily focused on the A.I.M skin inspecting some sort of holographic image, but the clue for the challenge is actually behind him on the chimney!

This means that the Banner should be located on the roof in Flush Factory where the skin originally landed (right next to his parachute).

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 8, the Hunting Party challenge will be unlocked and the Banner should be available for collection.

Simply go to the location marked on the map below and the Banner should be located on the tallest roof. All you need to do is collect it!

We will update this post with confirmation once the challenges go live…


When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
