A hidden battle star is available to find on the Fortnite Battle Royale map to find for week 4, as part of the Road Trip Challenge set in Season 5.

Just like the Blockbuster challenges in season 4, Road Trip Challenges will unlock a new loading screen each week, and clues to the location of the star are hidden within.

Week 4’s loading screen actually leaked along with week 3’s, but the star itself won’t become available to find on the map until you have completed all of the week 4 challenges.

And the Road Trip Challenge will not only help you scale the battle pass ranks faster, but also has a secret skin to unlock at the end of seven weeks (provided you complete all the challenges each week).

The Week 4 loading screen is a crazy party scene at the pool in the new ‘Lazy Links’ location on the Season 5 map, but the clue to the star’s location is in plain sight.

The star is slotted between a camel and plastic drinks cup, which is an obvious clue to head over to the bend in the road between Paradise Palms and Lucky landing:

But, remember – the star will only appear on the map after you have completed the week 4 weekly challenges, and unlocked the new loading screen.

There are another seven weekly challenges for week 4, three for all users and four exclusively for battle pass owners – see them here.

Fortnite Season 4 might be new, but an old enemy, the infamous gnome, is up to his usual antics. This means there are more secret challenges to complete. Here’s how to do them.

Fortnite’s secret challenges might be a small addition, but they’re welcome ones that keep players on their toes. It’s always nice to get one-up on that pesky gnome, but more importantly, players receive a decent amount of experience for completing them.

Fortnite Season 4 introduced a lot of new things, but it also added two new more secret challenges. They offer a modest 10,000 experience each, which makes them a nice way to boost your level. 

If you want to complete them but aren’t willing to invest the time and patience to figure it all out, we’ve got you covered.

Fortnite Season 4’s Secret Challenges all revolve around this pesky gnome.

Cleanse Tanks

The first challenge is located in Slurpy Swamp, and it’s very easy to do. 

  • Naturally, the first step is to make your way over to Slurpy Swamp.
  • Once you’re there, make your way to the main building and look for the two large tanks lying around.
  • You’ll notice that their tops are missing, which is intentional.
  • Jump inside and take a dip to cleanse them. It’s as simple as that.

The tanks are side-by-side, although they’ll look more green and gnarly compared to the picture above.


Luckily, the second challenge is in Slurpy Swamp as well. However, it’s a little trickier to spot than the first.

  • First, head to the northern side of the main building. It’s the same one you were in for the previous challenge.
  • Next, look for a wall with a conveniently-placed hole.
  • The insufferable gnome who has been playing games with us this whole time will be hidden inside. 
  • To draw him out, all you need to do is walk up towards him. If you get close enough, he’ll panic and launch himself into the distance.

That’s all there is to it. If you managed to complete them both, you’ll find yourself 20,000 experience points closer to a higher level.

Many players tend to stumble upon these challenges and finish them without even realizing it. However, others aren’t so lucky, and while they aren’t necessarily hard to do, they can be a pain to find.

Who knows where we’ll run into that pesky gnome next, but it’s inevitable that we will again in when the next series of challenges have been released.

Until then, you might want to go back and finish any of the others you’ve missed.
