An old favorite returns to the list of Fortnite challenges for Week 8 of Season 7 as players are asked to find a Battle Star that has been hidden on the map. Here’s how to complete ‘Search between a mysterious hatch, a giant rock lady and a precarious flatbed’.

As always, everything that you need to know about the completing this challenge is hidden in the clue: “Search between a mysterious hatch, a giant rock lady and a precarious flatbed.” This hint is actually rather specific once you give it some thought.

To work out where the Battle Star can be found, you simply need to work out the intersection between the three locations that have been described.

You may have already worked out one, or all, of the locations described. Perhaps the most recognizable point of interest is the ‘mysterious hatch’ which clearly refers to the bunker in Wailing Woods. Once you begin to inspect the surrounding area, you’ll also find the other described points of interest with ease.

The exact location should be just south of Wailing Woods on a small hill with a dark patch of ground. It should be in the bottom left corner of the J3 coordinate on the map.

If you’re still struggling, we’ve marked the spot on the map below. We’ll update this post with confirmation of the location when the challenges go live on January 24.

The star should appear as soon as you arrive at the location.

Once you arrive, the Battle Star should appear. Simply collect it in order to complete the challenge but don’t leave the game until you’ve been eliminated or won the match. Going back to the pre-game lobby too early could result in the challenge progression not being saved.

Once you complete all of the Season 7, Week 8 challenges, you’ll unlock the Week 8 Snowfall challenge and loading screen. This week, you’ll be finding a hidden Banner instead of everyone’s favorite secret Battle Star.

Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.

Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form.

This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
