The secret Banner returns for Week 6 of the Hunting Party in Fortnite Battle Royale. Here’s everything you need to know about finding it.

The Hunting Party is an ongoing bonus challenge that runs throughout Season 6, awarding players that complete every week with a mystery skin, much like Season 4’s Blockbuster challenge and Season 5’s Road Trip challenge.

In the past, players were asked to find a secret Battle Star somewhere on the map each week, but Banners were introduced at the end of Season 5 and have alternated with the Battle Star throughout Season 6.

Week 6 sees the Banner return, so any player that finds it will have a new Banner added to their inventory (no free Battle Pass tier this week).

As always, the hint for where the item can be found is included in this week’s Hunting Party loading screen. The Week 6 loading screen can be seen below with the hint circled.

As you’ve probably already worked out, the hint shows the truck sculpture that is located at the fork in the road slightly northwest of the Paradise Palms race track. The hidden Banner will be located at the very top of the structure.

Once you’ve completed all seven of the standard challenges for Week 6, the Hunting Party challenge will be unlocked.

Simply go to the location marked on the map below, build up to the top of the structure (or land on top of it), and you should be able to collect the Banner. Simple!

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Fortnitemares trailer

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
