Each week’s Fortnite challenges give players a new chance to earn a free Battle Star after they unlock the week’s loading screen.

The clue for Week 3 is hidden in the lower left of the loading screen, inscribed into the red stone wall. The image links to a shrine type of building in one of the newer areas of the map.
The location for this week is definitely off the beaten path. Our hidden Battle Star is located due south of Sunny Steps in a densely wooded area of the jungle. For reference, the Volcano is located to the west of the Battle Star’s location.
Once you arrive, you will need to find a small shrine. The general shape is the same as the clue in the loading screen above.
Remember, you cannot see the hidden Battle Star until you have completed all Week 3 challenges.
Once you have done so, the Battle Star will appear and you can collect it for some free progress on the Battle Pass. Here’s what the location looks like in-game:
We’ll have a post listing all Week 3 challenges once they become available. Until then, be sure to finish up your Week 2 tasks and get ready for another week of grinding ahead.
