Fortnite Season 10 is drawing to a close, but as always, there’s a brand-new hidden Battle Star on the island which players can unlock by completing the Week 9 challenges.

Week 9 kicked off with the v10.40 Update, which introduced a new point-of-interest called Starry Suburbs, alongside major changes to controller aiming, and The Combine where players can practice with the new settings.


As always, a fresh set of Missions go live on Thursday, September 26, which means players will be able to unlock a loading screen, and a hidden Battle Star too.

To grab the Battle Star, players will first need to complete three of this week’s challenges, with the loading screen seen above awarded to players for taking on the tasks.


This week’s loading screen shows players sitting in front of The Combine, but eagle-eyed players will be able to spot the sneaky hint that Epic Games have hidden above the door, with an image of a Tomatohead wearing a crown.

That’s where players will need to go this week, as the Battle Star is found on top of the giant Tomatohead statue, which sits directly west of Pressure Plant.

The head sits above a temple, so they’re going to either need to land on top of it when jumping out of the Battle Bus or build their way up should they choose to visit it later during a match.


Epic GamesPlayers need to head to the Tomatohead temple.

For those still struggling to find it, or unsure of where the temple sits on the island, you can use our map to pinpoint the exact location of the Battle Star.

Remember, you must have completed three of the Season 10, Week 9 challenges to unlock the hidden Battle Star, so don’t head towards the volcano expecting it to appear unless you’ve finished the required tasks.


Fortnitemares 2020 could be bringing back Zombie Husks with a twist

Fortnite’s annual Halloween event has evolved over the years though new leaks stemming from the 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares could hint at a return of controversial Zombie Husks.

Introduced back in 2017, Fortnitemares began as a Save The World event. It soon expanded as the spooky festivities took over the battle royale mode in 2018 as well. It was in this version of the annual event that players were forced to fend off hordes of Zombie Husks.


Cubes would spawn around the map as dozens of AI-controlled Husks would charge toward squads. It could often be overwhelming and outright end your run if they’re not taken care of instantly. This led to a rather drastic change in the 2019 event where individual Zombies would spawn at random while looting instead.

While certain emotes and various items have already leaked, we now have a new piece of intel on the upcoming Fortnitemares event. Nothing is set in stone though it appears the 2018 threat could be returning in some form.

Zombie Husks were quite controversial in the 2018 Fortnitemares event due to just how many spawned at once.

In Fortnite’s 14.30 update, plenty was changed on the surface and under the hood. As new content was added in, Epic Games also made some secret adjustments in preparation for the Halloween-themed event.

“A sound for the Zombies cube spawners was changed in 14.30,” prominent dataminer ‘Mang0e revealed. While this could be nothing of significance, it would be odd for the developers to make a change like this out of the blue.

There’s no telling exactly how these cube spawners will be adjusted, though it seems certain they’ll be back in some form. 


This means every player will need to be on high alert just like in 2018. You won’t have individual jump scares to worry about this year, but overwhelming swarms of AI could threaten your run.

We won’t have to wait long to see how the annual event evolves this time around. The 2020 iteration of Fortnitemares doesn’t yet have a date locked in. However, things typically kick off in the final week of October. 

Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days as the frightful update rolls around. In the meantime, be sure to get ahead of the upcoming event with our rundown on everything we know about Fornitemares 2020 so far.
