The Week 3 challenges in Fortnite Season 8 bring with them another opportunity for a hidden battle star on the map, and we’ve found its location so you don’t have to.

You will first need to complete the Week 3 challenges in full, which will unlock the new loading screen, before you are able to find this star on the map.

However, since the Week 3 loading screen has already been leaked by data miners, the clues that lead you to the hidden star are already available to check out.

As highlighted above, the clue for the Week 3 battle star location is inscribed in the wall, and relates directly to the shrine like area on the map.

It’s a pretty obscure spot, so if you’re not sure where this is, you’ll need to head just east of the volcano, and just south of Sunny Steps, one of the new Season 8 POI’s.

There, you will find a small shrine/cave area, similar to that drawn on the wall in loading screen. Once you have completed the Week 3 challenges, the star should appear here to collect.

The exact location of the star marked on the map.

Here’s what the location looks like in-game.

We’ll have a full guide for all the Week 3 challenges when they become available.

If you haven’t found the hidden banner for week 2, we’ve got a full guide for that too.

Remember, the star won’t appear on the map until you’ve completed all the Week 3 challenges and unlocked the loading screen.

Fortnite World Cup winner Aqua allegedly banned for FNCS stream-sniping

Fortnite World Cup champion and Season 4 FNCS competitor, David ‘aqua’ Wang has been accused of stream-sniping and subsequently been punished by an alleged ban by Epic Games.

At 17 years old, aqua represented his home country of Austria to the fullest by winning the 2019 Fortnite World Cup’s Duos event with Norway’s Emil ‘Nyhrox’ Bergquist. With a smooth $1.5 million earned from the World Cup, he’s since signed with Cooler Esport and continued to win competitions across Europe.

Most recently, aqua’s trio (with Rezon and Noahreyli) have been participating in FNCS Europe and, following the Week 3 semis, have been accused of stream-sniping another popular trio: Benjy ‘Benjyfishy’ Fish, Martin ‘MrSavage’ Andersen, and Kevin ‘LeTsHe’ Fedjuschkin.

Although fans initially deemed aqua’s behavior suspicious, things quickly escalated. With Benjyfishy’s team unable to qualify for the Week 3 finals and the discovery that aqua was watching MrSavage’s stream during the competition, the controversy has spiraled.

Following condemnations of the World Cup winner’s team, rumors began circulating that aqua, Rezon, and Noahreyli had been banned by Epic Games from participating past the first match of the Finals. 

Although many fans were delighted to hear the news, it was never officially legitimized and has since been made even more unclear by responses from some of the involved parties.

After the rumor mill buzzed with the reports that aqua’s team was banned from competing, he took to Twitter and gave a concise clarification denying those allegations: “We are not banned, we just don’t wanna play. It’s boring without early fighting Benjy.”

Given the difficulty inherent to confirming someone was in fact stream-sniping and didn’t coincidentally run into a fellow streamer, many believe it is unlikely that the World Cup winner has actually been exiled from the competition.

Additionally, some have noted that bans typically result in removal from the leaderboard, something that aqua’s team has not been hit with.

 

As for how the players are handling it, aqua and Benjyfishy have simply joked about the incident for hours. Neither side appears to be nearly as angry as some fans have been, instead, laughing at the drama and sharing memes.

 

While whatever’s going on behind the scenes may remain unclear, all players involved are more than good enough to qualify for the Season 4 FNCS Finals at some point, if they haven’t already, so it seems that no one’s really that bothered by the situation, ban or no ban.

We will continue to update this article with more details as they become available.
