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

Road Trip Challenges are season 5’s equivalent of the Blockbuster challenges in season 4, unlocking a new loading screen each week, with clues to the location of the star are within.

Both the week 5 and week 6 loading screens were actually leaked early by dataminers, but because you need to complete the road trip challenge for the star to appear, you can only find it now that the week 5 challenges are out.

There is also added incentive to complete the Road Trip challenge each week as it will eventually lead to unlocking a secret mysterious skin.

The loading screen for week 5 of season 5, unlocked with Road Trip challenge, is a desert scene, and the star’s location is hinted at the signpost.

The star’s location is hinted at being on top of the building surrounded by cacti in the northern area of Paradise Palms, co-ordinates 6-I on the map.

Here is the location of the star in-game, which should be found on the roof of the building.

Remember though, the star will only appear on the map once you have completed the weekly challenges for week 5, and unlocked the new loading screen from the Road Trip challenge.

Be sure to check out all our guides to the week 5 challenges to help you fly through them and get you to the battle star quicker.

There’s plenty to get excited about in Fortnite Season 5, but right now we’re here to tell you all you need to know about the new Exotic Weapons.

After the epic Galactus battle that took place during Season 4’s Nexus War finale, Season 5 is putting the focus back on Fortnite lore, as Agent Jones brings together the world’s greatest hunters – including The Mandalorian – for a chaotic battle that will shape the future of The Island.

Season 5 has brought with it a number of new additions, including a brand new map and bounties that tie into the Mandalorian crossover. It’s also introduced a new class of weapons called Exotic Weapons, which can be found at various places across The Island.

At the time of writing, there are five Exotic Weapons to be found in the game, although this number will likely grow in the future – and you can be sure we’ll keep you updated when it does.

They’re not as strong as Mythic Weapons, and whether they’re actually worth your time getting is up to you. But like all limited-time weapons and collectibles in Fortnite, we’re sure fans will be doing their best to find them all.

How do you find Exotic Weapons in Fortnite?

The new Exotic Weapon class guns can only be acquired by trading Gold Bars with specific NPCs that appear at various locations on The Island. Some of these can be found at more than one location.

You’ll need to start saving Gold Bars if you want to buy Exotic Weapons

Not sure what Gold Bars are? We’ve got you covered in our handy guide to the new Fortnite currency. as well as our guide to completing Bounties which will reward you with more Gold Bars.

Below you’ll find the full list of new Exotic Weapons, where to find them, and who to trade with to get them:

Exotic weapons list and how to get them

  • Boom Sniper Rifle – The Boom Sniper can be acquired by trading bars with Splode near Craggy Cliffs. It deals 10 damage, 25 headshot damage, and attaches a 60 damage clinger to your opponent.
  • Shadow Tracker Pistol – The Shadow Tracker can be acquired by trading bars with Reese at Dirty Docks. It deals 29 damage, 58 headshot damage, and is completely silenced.
  • Storm Scout Sniper Rifle – The Storm Scout Rifle can be acquired by trading bars with Lexa at Hunter’s Haven. It deals 85 damage, 212 headshot damage, and tells you where the next storm circle is.
  • The Dub Shotgun – The Dub can be acquired by trading bars with Dummy, who can appear either west of Dirty Docks, or southeast of Stealthy Stronghold. It deals 120 damage close range, 150 headshot damage close range, and will knock you back after firing.
  • The Nighthawk Revolver – The Night Hawk is acquired by trading bars with Mancake at Butter Barn which is southeast of The Zero Point. It deals 44 damage, 88 headshot damage, and its scope is in black and white when scoping in.

Each of these weapons will set you back a whopping 1225 Gold Bars, so you better get saving if you want to try them all out.

If you haven’t already memorized where the above locations are on the map, Fortnite leaker Mikey has put together a handy visual guide for finding them all, which you can see below:

As we said before, some of the NPCs that sell these weapons can spawn in various locations, so you won’t always find them where they are on this map – but it’s certainly a good place to start looking.
