Fortnite Battle Royale‘s Season 9 is well underway and for those who are looking to find the hidden battle star for the Week 1 Utopia challenges, you have came to the right place. 

Epic Games revealed a brand new selection of content for the new season on May 9 with the v9.00 update, which included a brand new futuristic revamp for both of the Tilted Towers and Retail Row locations. 

While some players will still be getting to grips with the new changes, many will be grinding through the first set of weekly challenges and after completing them, they’re going to be able to collect a secret battle star. So, let’s take a look at where that will be located…

The Utopia challenges might well have a different name, but players are still going to unlock a loading screen after completing them – as normal. This graphic, which was leaked early by dataminer Lucas7Yoshi, will give away a clue about the location of the hidden battle star for this week, as seen above. 

This week, the clue can be found on the minigun that Velocity is using, as it reveals the exact coordinates that you will have to search on the Fortnite map to find the star. It reads: I5, I6, J5, and J6. So, find those on the map and head for the middle point of them to collect the star. 

On the map below, you will be able to see the exact location of the Week 1, Season 9 hidden battle star in Fortnite Battle Royale. 

Here’s where you can find the hidden battle star for Fortnite Battle Royales Week 1, Season 9 Utopia challenges.

There was some speculation within the games online community that hidden battle stars would cease to exist in Season 9, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. 

Remember, though, you can only find this hidden star if you have completed the Utopia challenges. Good luck with your search! It should be pretty simple, with the help of this guide.


Ali-A uncovers teasers for future Fortnite skins: Matrix, Witcher, Ant-Man & more

YouTuber and longtime Fortnite superfan Alastair ‘Ali-A’ Aiken has discovered big clues for more crossover skins that could be coming soon to the game.

Season 5 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang as The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda arrived on The Island. Since then, we’ve seen God of War’s Kratos, Halo’s Master Chief, The Walking Dead’s Daryl and Michonne, and even Predator get their own skins.

So who’s coming next? Well, Ali-A has some ideas based on a hint list that was sent to him by Fortnite creators Epic Games themselves, and it seems as though more epic movie crossovers are on their way.

Could Neo or Trinity from The Matrix be coming to Fortnite?

What new skins are coming in Fortnite Season 5?

In a new video celebrating the arrival of Terminator, Ali-A also revisited a list of items that he’d been sent by Epic Games, with each item acting as a teaser for a ‘hunter’ that would be coming to the game at some point during Season 5.

It appears that many hints on the list have already been discovered: The cup is The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda; the sunglasses are Terminator; the face paint is Kratos; the mud mask is Predator; and the syrup is Mancake, for example.

As for the remaining items on the list, there are some very interesting theories about who they could relate to, and which iconic characters could be coming to The Island next.

Ali-A explains that the Ant-Farm item is most likely a hint at Ant-Man finally joining the game, as he was given his own point of interest during Season 4’s Marvel extravaganza but was never added as a character.

The red and blue jellybeans could be a hint towards characters from The Matrix. This will likely be either Neo or Trinity, as they’re both set to return in the upcoming sequel Matrix 4 that’s due out later in 2021.

Tokens also appear as an item on the list, and Ali-A believes this is a hint towards The Witcher protagonist Geralt, especially as the Netflix adaptation of the game features a song called Toss A Coin To Your Witcher.

A crossover with The Witcher could be coming to Fortnite.

A baseball bat could be a hint towards Scout from Team Fortress 2, or it could have pointed to The Walking Dead crossover that already happened. Similarly, space bananas could be a hint towards Samus Aran from Metroid, or it could have just been about Master Chief.

Elsewhere, the golden back scratcher is likely going to represent the long-rumored Female Midas skin, as it links up with the ‘Midas Touch’ myth. As for the hand wraps, even Ali-A is unsure what they could hint towards, but it could be a boxer of some sort.

We’ll have to wait and see whether any of these crossover skin predictions come true before Season 5 of Fortnite comes to an end on March 15, 2021.
