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.
