Week 9 of the Snowfall challenge in Fortnite once again features a Battle Star, meaning all Battle Pass owners on PC, PS4, Xbox One or any other platform have a free Battle Pass tier just waiting to be collected. Here's how to find it.

The Snowfall challenge is a bonus challenge that runs throughout Season 7. If players complete enough of the challenges before the end of the season, they will be rewarded with the mystery Snowfall skin, which was leaked by data miners after the release of the v7.30 patch.

*UPDATE* If you have kept up with all the weekly challenges, this is the week you will finally be able to unlock the Prisoner skin. This skin has four stages, and you will need to find keys to unlock each stage - the location of the first key has already been discovered.

The Snowfall challenge is very similar to the Hunting Party, Road Trip and Blockbuster challenges from past seasons; players that complete all seven challenges for a given week will unlock a loading screen that contains a hint for where to find a secret Fortnite Battle Star or Banner.

The loading screen for the ninth week of the season was leaked shortly after the release of the v7.30 patch on January 29, so we already knew exactly where we need to look in order to complete the Snowfall challenge when it went live on January 31.

The Snowfall loading screen for Week 9 of Season 7 can be seen below. The hint this week is pretty tricky to spot so we’ve circled it for you:

The Week 9 Snowfall loading screen also provides a glimpse at the Snowfall skin.

As you might have already guessed, the image scratched into the wall of the icy cave shows the Battle Star located on top of the wooden sleigh that can be found in the center of the D8 coordinate of that map.

The Battle Star will be located at the exact point marked on the map below, on the top of the wood sled.

Simply land on top of the sleigh once you've completed all of the Week 9 challenges.

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 9, the Snowfall challenge will be unlocked and the Battle Star should be available for collection.

You simply need to go to the location marked on the map and the Battle Star will appear.
