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.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.

We will continue to update this guide as new information becomes available.
