Season 5 of Fortnite: Battle Royale will feature another multi-week challenge opportunity for players to complete and unlock a secret character.

Known as the ‘Blockbuster’ in Season 4, Epic Games implemented a set of challenges which could only be unlocked over multiple weeks after players completed various tasks across the Season.

The same principle of ‘Blockbuster’ is back in Season 5 of Fortnite, and will now be known as ‘Road Trip.’ Like Season 4, the new multi-week endeavor requires players with the Battle Pass to complete all challenges from any seven different weeks of Season 5 to unlock the ‘Mystery Character.’

However, just completing all of the challenges in a specific week is not enough to earn the Road Trip character. Once a full slate of weekly challenges are completed, a player must then find the corresponding hidden Battle Star on the map for that respective week.

Now that Season 5 is underway, the Battle Star for the Week 1 challenges has been discovered with the hint coming via the loading screen that is unlocked following the completion of the necessary challenges.

The map held by Rex in the loading screen shows that the Battle Star can be found in the ‘quarry’ between Pleasant Park and Lazy Links (formerly Anarchy Acres), with the exact location able to be viewed below in the orange circle.

The Battle Star itself is located on the ‘steps’ in the quarry, as shown below. Just as a reminder, players must either play the remainder of the match or die in order to complete the challenge, instead of just leaving the game.

Epic Games have rolled out their spooky Fortnitemares update in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 4 and there’s a load of map changes to talk about. Here, we look through everything that’s changed in patch v14.40. 

The game is always in line for a wild update every Halloween and the same has happened this year. The dark forces of the battle royale world have come back from the shadows, all to celebrate the return of Midas – who disappeared earlier in the season.

Now, with the huge update on October 21 comes a shakeup for the game’s ever-changing map.

So, let’s run through everything you need to know for the next time you jump from the Battle Bus.

Fortnite Halloween update map changes

Witchshacks

These Witchshacks have some very useful items inside.

One of the first things players will notice is that a number of Witchshacks have been dotted around the island. These were found by leaker FortTory, soon after the patch rolled out.

You have to feel, just because of the nature of them and the fact brooms can be found inside, that these will soon become hotspots for players dropping in.

Midas return location

Also found by FortTory is this Midas location, which looks to be his return location.

This appears to be the place where Midas will rise once again, with candles lit in a circle and the throne sitting in the background.

Soon enough, we’ll get to see what happens here, but an interesting addition nonetheless.

The Ruins POI: Fortnitemares

Here’s how it looks in-game.

The game’s middle point of interest has been given a spooky makeover, called The Ruins.

Surrounded by ghouls and who knows what, this could be one of the most dangerous places for members of the community moving forward.

Halloween decorations

If entering haunted houses is your thing, Fortnite is definitely worth playing this Halloween.

Some players will have seen many of these prior to the update, but much of the settlements in Epic Games’ popular title are now filled with Halloween props on the inside and out.

Here, we can see huge spiders placed on buildings and webs, so get used to seeing that.

We’ll be updating this article with more map changes as we find them…

Last, but not least, you can check out the official Fortnitemares trailer – showing off all of the new features.

It was posted to the Fortnite Twitter account on October 21, once the patch rolled out.

So, there you have it! A jam-packed update for players to sink their teeth into this October.
