For Fortnite fans who are hoping to complete the Season 8 Discovery challenges, the week two challenge is now live, and this week requires players to hunt for a hidden Banner instead of a Battle Star.

Discovery challenges replaced the Snowfall challenges from Season 7 and the Road Trip challenges from Season 6, but work in a similar fashion to the those from past seasons.

Once players complete the weekly challenges for each week, Fortnite fans will unlock a new loading screen and be able to start searching for the Banner, which replaces the Battle Star for the second week of the Discovery challenges.

The loading screen for the second week of the Season 8 was leaked in the V8.00 update, so players have already had a chance to figure out where the banner is, which they can unlock once they have completed the seven Fortnite Season 8 Week 2 challenges that released on Thursday, March 7.

If you still don’t know where you need to look though, the full Season 8, week 2 loading screen can be viewed below, with the hidden Banner circled for you.

The Banner can be found in the top left corner of the loading screen.

It’s fairly obvious where you will need to visit to find the hidden Banner, as the Volcano located in the north-east corner of the map is the home of the week 2 Discovery challenge.

Players just need to drop into the top of the Volcano and then glide over to the platform that holds the Prisoner skin’s throne. The Banner will be hanging on the wall to the left of the throne – simply walk over and interact with it.

Players need to head inside the Volcano to find the Banner.

If you’re still having issues figuring out where you can find the hidden Banner, YouTuber HarryNinetyFour has uploaded a video showing you exactly how to get your hands on it, including the best way to dive into the Volcano.

Due to the Volcano creating an updraft, some players attempting to use a glider have been unable to make it inside, however HarryNinetyFour shows how to dive inside the lava-spewing crater and glide over to where you can access the banner.

Remember though, you will need to have completed the week 2 challenges and unlocked the second Season 8 loading screen before heading to the Volcano in search of the Hidden Banner.

Fortnite death map reveals most dangerous locations

If you’re looking to stay alive until the very end of a battle royale match in Fortnite, you might want to avoid these deadly locations on the map.

We’ve all been there: You spend ages traveling across The Island, collecting and upgrading the best weapons, getting some epic takedowns… and then you die, losing everything in your arsenal and missing out on that Victory Royale.

It’s a frustrating moment, for sure. But avoiding some of the game’s elimination hot spots could help you on your path to success – or at the very least, make you one of the Top 10 remaining players.

Fortunately, one Fortnite leaker has put together a map highlighting the points of interest that have significantly more deaths than others, meaning you’ll know where to avoid next time you go for the win.

Tilted Towers, now blended with Salty Springs, was spotted in the Fortnite Season 5 battle pass trailer.

Some locations have way more deaths than others in Fortnite.

Where is the most dangerous place in Fortnite?

Fortnite leaker Lucas7yoshi has collected a huge sample of 50,000 deaths that have taken place during Season 5 of Fortnite, and highlighted exactly where they happened on The Island.

Put together, they form a very useful heatmap that shows off the deadliest locations players can visit.

As you can see from the map below, areas with the highest amount of deaths include Lazy Lake, Pleasant Park, Misty Meadows, Colossal Colosseum, Retail Row, and Stealthy Stronghold – which is probably due to Predator now appearing there.

But there’s a clear winner here: Salty Towers. There are a few reasons that might help explain why this point of interest – which can be found just west of the Zero Point – is such a deadly area for players to visit.

Firstly, it’s near the center of the map, which is where a lot of the action ends up taking place. Secondly, it’s covered in sand, which means players can really take advantage of the sand tunneling feature to sneak attack their opponents.

Finally, the point of interest was a new addition in Season 5, acting as a combination of previous locations Salty Springs and Tilted Towers, so it makes sense that it’s a popular destination as people rush to check it out.

Lucas7yoshi also shared a zoomed-in map of Salty Towers which shows off the exact point where players in their sample died. They’re marked as red dots on the image below.

It’s official: Salty Towers is the deadliest location in Fortnite.

Interestingly, this map may have also revealed the most dangerous building on the Island, as there are significantly more deaths centered on the tall building at the south of Salty Towers.

Whether you’re new to the game and still working on your skills, or you simply want to survive as long as possible to get the best chance at a Victory Royale, it’s probably best to avoid Salty Towers at all costs.
