The secret Battle Star returns for Week 7 of the Hunting Party in Fortnite Battle Royale, meaning there’s a free Battle Pass tier waiting to be collected! Here’s everything you need to know about finding it.

The Hunting Party is an ongoing bonus challenge that runs throughout Season 6 and awards players that complete all of the weeks with a mystery skin, much like Season 4’s Blockbuster challenge and Season 5’s Road Trip challenge.

In previous seasons, players were asked to find a secret Battle Star somewhere on the map each week, but Banners were introduced at the end of Season 5 and have alternated with the Battle Star throughout Season 6.

Week 7 sees the Battle Star, which is the significantly more popular item return, so any player that finds it will be granted a free Battle Pass tier for their efforts.

As always, the hint for where the item can be found is included in this week’s Hunting Party loading screen. The Week 7 loading screen, which was leaked after the November 6 v6.22 patch, can be seen below with the hint circled.

As you can see, the loading screen is heavily focused on the destruction of Fortnite’s cube which took place during a major event called ‘Butterfly’ on November 4, but the hint is actually on the outskirts of the image.

The Battle Star should be located on a small boat that has been left stranded on one of the chunks of ground around Leaky Lake.

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 7, the Hunting Party challenge will be unlocked and the Battle Star should be available for collection.

Simply go to the location marked on the map below and the Battle Star should be in the small row boat.

Update: The star has been found in game and is now actually available at a different island.

The challenges for Week 7 are now live, so you can head in right now and unlock the Week 7 loading screen, and head over to the row boat at the lake.

For a full list of all the challenges and tips for completing them, check out our Week 7 challenges hub.

The Hunting Party skin will be available this week too, as long as you have completed all the challenges in previous weeks.

Fortnite’s Marvel-themed Season 4 takeover is almost winding down, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to grab some last-minute XP boosts with our guide on the Week 10 challenges.

Season 4 of Fortnite has seen tons of new content over the weeks. On top of the ample supply of cosmetic unlocks, Epic has deployed everything from new abilities to secret challenges.

With the ongoing storyline teasing major changes each passing update, time is of the essence to get everything done before we reached Season 5. Once the rare items are gone from the game, there’s no chance at claiming them anytime in the future.

So if you’re trying to make every minute count and get the most of your experience gains, weekly challenges are for you.

Things couldn’t be simpler this time around and we’ve got you covered with everything there is to know about the week 10 objectives.

You’ll need to prioritizing vehicles early on to tick the latest challenges off your list.

First up, all of the usual tasks are listed once again. You’ll need to search some chests, find some quick kills, and collect various resources. These can all be smashed out in the blink of an eye without any real difficulty.

Vehicles will be a big priority over the next few days as there are three unique challenges to tick off. One will have you racing from The Fortilla to The Authority in under four minutes. Meanwhile, the other simply asks you to stay in a vehicle for a long period of time and travel the map.

Arguably the most difficult of the vehicle-specific challenges, you’ll need to eliminate a few enemies with them. This means you may have to catch some opposing players by surprise. Be on the lookout for explosives that could end your run before it really begins.

You can blitz through a handful of these activities at the same time but others require a more focused effort. Below is the full list of challenges for the latest week in Fortnite.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 10 Challenges

  • Search Chests at Upstate New York
  • Eliminations at Lazy Lake
  • Collect Metal from Slurpy Swamp
  • Catch fish at Heart Lake
  • Eliminate opponents by hitting them with vehicles
  • Drive a boat from The Fortilla to The Authority in less than 4 minutes
  • Ride 20,000 meters in a vehicle
  • Deal damage to opponents at Sentinel Graveyard

Expect the Sentinel Graveyard to be a hot drop for the next week.

You’ve still got a few weeks left to finish up the Season 4 Battle Pass. Though you may want to start rushing through not only these weekly tasks, but the secret challenges too. 

Every scrap of XP will help as you look to unlock the final rewards in the Marvel-centric update.
