Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 – Road Trip Challenges Guide | Secret Battle Star Locations

Those secret Blockbuster challenges are back in Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 5 — this time, they’re called Road Trip Challenges, and you’ll learn that finding the secret Battle Star is essentially the same as its always been. You’ll need to complete all your weekly challenges, then you’ll earn a postcard / loading screen imagine. The imagine will always have a clue showing the location of a bonus Battle Star you can use to unlock a section of your XP progression meter.

Really, these extra Battle Stars are an easy way to progress down the long seasonal unlockable timeline faster. They’re totally optional, but who doesn’t want more stuff? Here, I’m going to reveal where to find every weekly Battle Star location. There’s a new one to find after you complete each weekly challenge. Check back later as the week progresses — and don’t worry, you can always got back and complete those weekly challenges at a later date in Season 5. They’re not licked into any single week.

After purchasing the Season 5 Battle Pass, you’ll be able to join weekly challenges. Complete an entire sheet of challenges, and you’ll earn yourself a special postcard / loading screen image — there’s a clue that shows you where to get a free, secret Battle Star on the image.

Here, we’re going to explain where you need to go to find the hidden Battle Star so you don’t have to solve these tricky puzzles alone.

Week 4 – Secret Battle Star Location

    • Map Coordinates: I6 [On top of a metal shed. Find it north of Paradise Palms, and on the hill north of the gas station, and just west of the race track. It’s a solitary shed in the desert, so you can’t miss it.]
