Epic Games have introduced Season 5 Week 9 challenges to Fortnite, and one of them requires you to find a hidden bunker. Here’s the location with a map to help you find it.

Just like clockwork, there’s a new set of weekly challenges for Fortnite players to tackle. Completing these will earn you a huge chunk of XP, which is necessary to max out your Battle Pass and unlock all of Season 5’s skins and cosmetics.

There are some obvious quests like dealing damage to Loot Sharks and shaking down an IO Guard, but others require a bit more thought. One of these is finding a hidden bunker, which is located somewhere secret on The Island.

This is arguably the most difficult challenge to complete this week if you don’t know where to look, as the bunkers are in areas you’d never normally think to visit. Fortunately, we’ve got a handy location guide to help you out.

There are actually three hidden bunkers you can find across The Island, and they’re all pretty far apart from one another, so choose the one that’s closest to your favorite landing spot and head for that one.

You should be able to visit any one of these three locations and the challenge will be ticked off straight away. You can’t actually open these hidden bunkers, and the reason for their existence remains unknown.

We’ve marked them all on the Fortnite Season 5 map below, which should make it pretty easy to complete:

This is where the three hidden bunkers are located in Fortnite Season 5.

Underwater bunker

The first hidden bunker can be found underwater – see what we mean about them being hard to find? – just south of Holly Hedges, near the circle of stone stones where the cliff sticks out.

Swim around for a while, jumping in and out of the water, and you should eventually spot it under the surface. This one is probably the most difficult to go after, as you can only see it when underwater.

Unremarkable Shack bunker

A second hidden bunker can be found on the island northeast of Stealthy Stronghold.

It’s underneath a pile of wood and debris behind the Unremarkable Shack landmark, so you’ll need to use your pickaxe to break through and reveal it.

Cliffside bunker

The third and final hidden bunker in Fortnite is located at a cliffside campsite east of Retail Row.

You’ll know you’re in the right place because it has two tents: one white and one purple. The bunker is hidden under a large bush that you need to destroy between two nearby trees.

As we said before, there are three hidden bunkers in total across the map, but you should only need to visit one of them to complete the Week 9 challenge and earn yourself 20,000 XP for your efforts.

Fortnite’s Season 5 Week 13 challenges have arrived, and we’ve got all the information you need to complete each and every quest in no time at all.

We’re now only a few weeks away from the end of Season 5, which is expected to close on March 15, 2021. Things are getting a bit dry, but Epic Games are continuing to pump out weekly challenges to give players something new to focus on.

This week, there’s a mix of weapon damage quests and location-based quests. There are also a few tasks based around the Zero Point, as players will need to destroy some Crystal Trees and enter the Zero Point.

Below, you’ll find the complete list of Week 13 challenges that go live on Thursday, February 25, 2021, at 9AM ET. There are a total of seven Epic quests to work through, as well as a single Legendary quest that will earn you a huge amount of XP.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 13 Quests

The most interesting quest this week is the first one, which tasks players with scanning a server at a Surface Hub. It turns out, these are actually the Imagined Order’s underground bunkers. We’ve got a guide to finding Surface Hubs here.

Throwing fruit at Hunter’s Haven should be easy. Collect fruit from any POI, make your way to Hunter’s Haven, then throw it on the ground. You can also deal damage to opponents here to complete the next challenge, and if you do it with a Pistol, you’ll tick off another in the process.

To bathe in the Purple Pool, you’ll need to visit Steamy Stacks at the northeast of the Season 5 map. You can find the pool inside the main building on the ground floor. We’ve got a guide to finding the Purple Pool here.

Entering the Zero Point requires you to jump out the Battle Bus over the center of the map and glide into it. Doing so won’t harm you, it will actually increase your shield. From here, destroying Crystal Trees is as simple as attacking the crystals that stick out of the sand with your pickaxe.

Fortnite Season 5 Week 13 Legendary Quest

  • Build Structures (60/120/180/240/300)

This week’s Legendary quest should be a lot easier to complete than last week’s challenge, which required players to deal damage to opponents within 10 seconds of Zero Point Dashing.

You won’t even need to engage in combat this week, as you’ll simply need to build a total of 300 structures. As this is something most players do at least a few times during a match, you should complete it during everyday play.

However, if you want to speed things along, we recommend you land at a quiet POI and farm for materials. Once you’ve maxed your inventory out, build away and you’ll tick each tier of this Legendary quest off in no time at all.

Remember, you’ll only have until Thursday, March 4, 2021, to complete all of these quests and earn XP to level up your Battle Pass before Week 14 kicks off and they disappear.
