A new wave of challenges are now available to take on and complete in Fortnite Season 7
For those that aren’t aware, Epic Games launches seven Battle Royale challenges each week, and sometimes they throw in a secret battle star to sweeten the pot.
To do this, players must complete all seven challenges released today, which will unlock the next phase of the bonus Snowfall Challenge.
This is a mini story event that is told through hidden Loading Screens, which are unlocked when a player has completed all seven challenges.
And in that special Loading Screen is a hidden clue that offers players the chance of finding the location of the Week 3 secret battle star.
The challenges are also separated into hard and regular tiers of difficulty, the harder tier offering ten Battle Stars and the regular rewarding fans with five.
WEEK 3 SECRET BATTLE STAR LOCATION AND LOADING SCREEN
Week 3 includes a special loading screen that offers all the clues you need for tracking down the secret battle star.
The Snowfall Challenge will run for several weeks and will culminate in the launch of a special skin that’s only available to those who have completed every single one.
This week’s loading screen shows Sgt Winter filling his plane with presents, with AIM robots helping out.
And the secret battle star can be just spotted hanging out on a shelf, just right of Winter’s elbow.
This is where players will find the battle star after they complete all seven challenges from week 3.
That means finding and raiding the hangers in the southwest of the map, in the Frosty Flights location.
This can be found on the edge of the 8-B map marker, very close to the frosty cliffs.
Fans will want to check the hanger that is left of the big Christmas tree and focus on the shelves.
One of these shelves should include the secret battle star you seek.
As mentioned above, Fortnite fans will need to complete all seven week 3 challenges before they can find the extra battle star.
There is no point trying to track it down until this, as it won’t appear and will remain hidden.
It should also be noted that you must have a Season 7 battle pass to complete all the challenges, so if you haven’t, there is no need to go on this search.
