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.


Vaulted & unvaulted weapons in Fortnite Season 5

A number of weapons and items have been either vaulted or unvaulted in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5, including some fan favorites and old classics. 

Fortnite Season 5 officially dropped on Wednesday, December 2, bringing a number of major changes with it. As specified in the new update’s patch notes, the game is going to look pretty different going forward.

Some big map changes hint toward a slow revert back to the old map, with the likes of Flush Factory and Dusty Depot starting to come back, which is more than enough reason to get excited.

And, although new weapons such as the Dragon Shotgun have arrived, one thing all players will be looking for is the old items that have returned from the vault, and those which have been placed back in it.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5 is named Zero Point — and brings some fun changes to the game.

Vaulted weapons

Vaulted weapons are those that have been stashed away, unplayable in the game, that might one day return to the game.

Here’s what we know has been vaulted:

  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar assault rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Tac SMG

Unvaulted weapons

Of course, with some weapons leaving the game, some are making their grand return. Here’s what:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons

So, that’s everything that’s been vaulted or unvaulted according to the patch notes for Fortnite Season 5, and there’s definitely some there that we’re going to miss, such as the Scar assault rifles and Pump shotguns, but the Tactical Shotgun and P90 making a return could make up for that and keep the weapons feeling fresh and fun.

With a number of big streamers starting to switch back to Fortnite, it looks like Season 5 could be one of the biggest yet — so have fun destroying those new and returning players!
