One of the Week 9, Season 5 challenges for Fortnite Battle Royale asks you to follow a treasure map found in Shifty Shafts. Here’s how to do it.

If you’re in a hurry, you don’t actually need to travel to Shifty Shafts. The map might be there, but the location that it directs you to is nowhere near.

As you can see, the map shows that the Battle Pass star can be found on a rocky outcrop on the side of a mountain:

If you’re struggling to work out where the image is showing, it’s actually the irregular mountain range that can be found slightly southwest of Dusty Divot, North of Salty Springs.

The Battle Pass star can be found on one of the lower areas of the mountain. The exact location is marked on the map below:

Once you get to the location and find the star, simply collect it and the challenge will be complete.

If you're still struggling, you can see the exact location in the screenshot below.

Remember to complete the game before returning to the lobby. Leaving before you are eliminated (or before you win!) can result in your challenge progression not being correctly applied.

With just two weeks remaining in Season 5, completing the Week 9 challenges will be critical for any players that are still trying to grind their way through all of the season’s Battle Pass tiers.

Completing all seven challenges will unlock a bonus loading “Road Trip” loading screen with a hint for the location of a hidden Battle Pass star or item.
