It’s officially week 7 in Fortnite Battle Royale, meaning there is another battle star hidden on the map, as part of the Road Trip Challenge set in Season 5.

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

Both the week 7 and week 8 loading screens were actually leaked, but because you need to complete the road trip challenge for the star to appear, you will only be able to do week 7’s this time around.

Because it is the seventh week, it also means that if you have kept up with the Road Trip challenge throughout season 5, you should be able to unlock the mystery skin, or be getting very close.

The loading screen for week 7 of season 5, features several of the leaked new Road Trip characters riding the sign that stands in front of the motel out of a rift.

The clue for the star is just hovering over the wall, it is very vague, but zoomed in you can just make it out.

The star will be sitting atop the brick wall next to the motel, just North West of Lazy Links.

Here is the location of the star in-game, thanks to YouTuber niitq, it should be right here on top of the wall at the motel.

The star will only appear on the map once you have completed the weekly challenges for week 7, and unlocked the new loading screen as a reward for the Road Trip challenge.

If you have missed a week of challenges, then don’t worry, because as long as you complete week 8, you should still be able to complete all 7 of the Road Trip challenges to unlock the mystery skin.

The battle pass star itself will also help you fly up the ranks and unlock the gear at the highest levels.


How to open chests in Upstate New York for Fortnite Week 10 challenges

The tenth week of Fortnite’s Season 4 has arrived, and with a new set of weekly challenges comes one task that asks players to open chests in Upstate New York. While this may sound confusing, here’s everything you need to make this challenge simple. 

Fortnitemares has officially arrived, with Midas reappearing for the first time since his Device experiment backfired badly, flooding the entire island at the end of Season Two. Midas has regained control of The Agency, and his army of Shadow Henchmen are ready to cause chaos.

Of course, the overarching Season 4 storyline is all about superheroes, with Marvel characters invading the island. The evil Galactus is on his way, and heroes like Tony Stark, Dr. Doom, and Wolverine have made Fortnite their home as they prepare for battle.

With these characters, new POIs and locations have appeared, and to complete this specific challenge you’ll need to head to Upstate New York. While this may sound like a strange request, it actually exists as a landmark inside the game. If you aren’t sure where to find it though, we’ve got everything you need to complete this task.

When Stark Industries arrived in Fortnite Season 4, you may have noticed that the POI is located inside what appears to be a massive bubble, which covers a large portion of the north-east corner of the island. It’s easy to spot, as the area is marked on the map for you, and the trees inside it are lovely shades of yellow and orange, compared to the normal green trees elsewhere.

Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that Stark calls New York his home, with the Stark Industries tower planted in the middle of New York City. Even the Avengers base in later films is located in Upstate New York. It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise then that his location in Fortnite was originally planted in the state of New York, which has now been transported to the island.

Thankfully, once you know where Upstate New York is, it’s easy to complete this Week 10 challenge, as all you need to do is open seven chests inside this landmark. They don’t even have to be opened in the same match, so just pick them up as you see them and you’ll finish this task eventually. If you’re still not sure where to go, we’ve included an image below.

It may take a couple of visits to Upstate New York to finish off this task, as there will be plenty of other people attempting it too. While Stark Industries has the most chests, it may be easier to head to some of the smaller buildings located in the zone, as they will be quieter and make you less likely to face enemies.

It’s well worth completing this task if you’re ranking up your Season 4 Battle Pass, as this offers a massive 25,000 XP reward, which will help you unlock new skins and cosmetic items.
