If you are keeping up to date with the Discovery Challenges in Fortnite, then you will need to find the hidden banner for Week 6 of Season 8, which is available after completing the new weekly challenges.

Where is the secret banner on the Week 6 loading screen?

The developers have used a more cryptic hint for the Week 6 banner, and instead of pointing out the physical location banner in the loading screen, they have slyly added coordinates to the image.

As you can see on the key in the loading screen, the top part has the banner image, while the base of the key has four coordinates listed: F2, F3, E2, E3.

Week 6 loading screen shows the coordinates for the hidden banner.

Where is the hidden banner for Week 6 of Fortnite Season 8?

With the coordinates from the key, we can get a pretty good estimate as to where the banner will be, but it’s exact location isn’t given to us entirely.

Presumably, it will be at the intersection of the four coordinates, which we have marked on the map below.

The intersection of F2, F3, E2 and E3 take us here on the Fortnite map.

Most likely, the banner will be placed near the large Moai statue on the hill, which is adjacent to two boulders, and there is typically a chest here too.

The banner will be found here, between the large stones near Lazy Lagoon.

How to get the Week 6 hidden banner in Fortnite

  1. Complete the Week 6 weekly challenges
  2. Unlock the loading screen for the Discovery Challenges
  3. Head to the coordinates shown in the loading screen (E2, E3, F2, F3)
  4. Interact with the banner near the Moai statue at Lazy Lagoon

Remember, the banner itself will not appear until you have completed all the challenges for Week 6 of Fortnite Season 8, and subsequently unlocked the loading screen bearing the coordinates.

The week 6 challenges are officially live in Fortnite now, so hop in, get them complete and then get busy finding this week’s hidden banner.

Fortnite Season 5 Rift Beacon leak hints at map changes

A new Fortnite leak has hinted at the Rift Beacons making a return in the near future, so, they could be coming back in the upcoming Chapter 2, Season 5 update?

Even with a new map, a raft of new mechanics, and different crossovers, Fortnite Chapter 2 hasn’t quite hit the heady heights it set itself back in Chapter 1 when it exploded onto the battle royale scene. 

That, in turn, leads fans to beg for Epic Games to bring back things from the past – be it a particular weapon, map location, and in some cases, an overall theme for the season. On of the most sought-after items, that fans would like to see make a return, are the Rift Beacons.

The beacons, which popped up in Season X, were apart of the ever-evolving map – with locations, new and old, taking their place with each update. Seeing a beacon in-game, at a certain location, spelled danger for it – and they gave fans something to look forward to.

Rift Beacons spell the end of days for locations when they pop up.

Well, it looks like they could be returning in the near future – at least, perhaps, to play a role in the Galactus Event. 

Fortnite leaker TweaFN tweeted on November 29 that the beacons had been updated – alongside a whole host of other assets. These included the beam of light used in the Robot vs Monster event at the end of Season 9.

These event-related assets being updated does seem to suggest that they will be used in the Galactus, especially as the beacons were also updated prior to the Chapter 2, Season 3 event – where they played a small role. 

Even though all signs point to the beacons, at least for now, playing a role in the event – this doesn’t completely rule out their return in Season 5. 

As of writing, the only hint about the Season 5 theme we’ve got is the Mandalorian and Baby Yoda secret skin, so everything is on the table in terms of changes. We’ll just have to see what Epic decides to do.
