Two more loading screens have been leaked for Season 9, for weeks 3 and 4, and they reveal not only some interesting cosmetics, but also include a hidden meaning.

As with previous seasons, Season 9 has its own set of season-long challenges, similar to the ‘Discovery’ challenges before, this time called Utopia.

The loading screens in the game have more than just an aesthetic purpose, of course, as they also give players hints and clues to finding secret banners and stars hidden on the map.

The loading screens have also been used to tell the ‘story’ of the game too, such as the prisoner skin performing his ritual, which eventually led to the volcano arriving.

Season 9 Week 3 and Week 4 loading screens

Dropping alongside the v9.10 update, the two loading screens for week 3 and 4 of Season 9 not only include the clues for hidden items, but also brand new skins and styles.

Week 3’s loading screen, via @FireMonkeyFN, shows a new dog skin, surrounded by smaller dog pets, and the battle star hint is visible among the graffiti on the wall.

And then for Week 4, the loading screen shows off the new drones, which have just been added in the v9.10 update.

Before the guides hidden in the images are any use to you, though, you will need to complete the weekly challenges for the respective weeks.

Week 3 challenges are expected to go live on Thursday, May 23, and we’ll have guides for any of the trickier ones, should you be stuck.

Once completed, you’ll simply need to do some close inspection of these images to find where you need to go – or, you could always cheat and use our location guide for the hidden star too.


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.

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.
