There’s no secret Battle Star for Week 8 of the Road Trip challenge in Fortnite Battle Royale – it’s been replaced by a hidden Banner instead!

One of the most common questions after the release of the Week 8, Season 5 challenges was “how can I find the secret Battle Pass Star for the Road Trip challenge?”.

The answer is you can’t, because there isn’t one. The Week 8 loading screen does still contain a hint to find a secret item, though, as you can see in the image below:

The hint takes you to a free Tomato Head Banner near Tomato Temple which, when interacted with, is added to your inventory permanently.

The exact location of the Banner has originally shared on Reddit by cnote54321 and can be found below.

While the Banner doesn’t grant you a free Battle Pass tier like the Battle Stars do, it is still a pretty cool item to get your hands on.

The Season 5 Road Trip challenge was similar to the Season 4 Blockbuster challenge – players that completed all seven standard challenges for a given week could unlock a bonus challenge and find a Battle Star to work towards earning a special outfit.

Players needed to complete seven Road Trip challenges to unlock the outfit, which turned out to be the Ragnorak Outfit, but it looks like Epic Games want to make sure there is incentive to continue grinding out the challenges even when players have earned it.

With Week 9 and 10 still to come, it will be interesting to see whether secret Banners will become the norm or whether each week will feature a new easter egg!

The v14.30 update has finally been released for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and it has introduced some secret changes that Epic Games did not include in the latest set of patch notes.

Fortnite’s superhero-themed Season 4 is continuing to deliver fresh content, with even more characters like Daredevil soon to be released in-game, as part of the upcoming Marvel Knockout Super Series.

However, while Epic revealed that there were other tweaks, such as minor buffs for the Combat shotgun, there were a few secret changes that were not revealed in the latest patch notes. Here’s everything you need to know.

Galactus added to the Fortnite map

While there have been many Marvel heroes added to Fortnite in Season 4, it was also revealed that Galactus would appear in the battle royale as the villain, ahead of the Nexus War event.

It seems as if he has finally been added to the Fortnite map after some eagle-eyed Fortnite fans discovered a change in the map’s skyline, with a bizarre red dot now visible after the 14.30 patch.

Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey revealed that the “distant object” in the sky was Galactus and that he was on his way to the Fortnite island ahead of his showdown with the Avengers and other Marvel characters.

New Black Panther Mythic Ability

Fortnite’s Season 4 also saw the introduction of new Mythic Abilities that players can equip in-game and the latest update, on October 13, added a Black Panther ability called “Kinetic Armor.”

The new power works similarly to the character’s suit in the popular Marvel movies, allowing players to absorb more damage, run faster, and even deal damage to nearby opponents and structures, after it has been activated.

Fortnite YouTuber SypherPK shared gameplay of Black Panther’s Kinetic Armor and revealed that it can be found in the Stark Industries Supply Drones that are scattered across different points-of-interest on the Fortnite map.

Fortnite Holly Hedges map changes

There were also some secret map changes that were not mentioned in Fortnite’s recent patch notes and the v14.30 update saw tweaks to the Superstore near the Holly Hedges POI.

With some Halloween-themed changes expected to arrive in Fortnite in the coming weeks, Epic Games has redecorated the landmark and renamed it the “Hey Boo Megastore.”

While this is one of the first Halloween-based changes so far, it is likely that more will be on the way ahead of the upcoming Fortnitemares Halloween event.

Epic teases Midas’ return to Fortnite

Midas has been one of the biggest characters in Fortnite Chapter 2, but after his attempt to shake up the world in Season 2’s in-game event, he has completely disappeared from the battle royale.

While he was last seen being eaten by a shark in the Season 3 trailer, it seems the mysterious character could be set for a return in the upcoming Halloween event, with his golden chair now appearing in The Authority POI.
