Fortnite Blockbuster Challenge Week 3: How to find the secret battle star from the "A Looming Threat" loading screen

In Fortnite Season 4, once you’ve finished your weeklies there’s still work to do. Hidden somewhere on the Fortnite map is a secret Battle Star, the location of which is only revealed by the faintest of outlines in the loading screen reward that you get for finishing the week’s challenges. So you’re not straining your eyes too hard trying to find it, here’s the Week 3 Blockbuster Challenge battle star location that you get from the “A Looming Threat” loading screen.

To unlock this loading screen and the secret Battle Star, you have to have completed all of the Fortnite Season 4 Week 3 challenges. That means searching Rubber Duckies and following the Salty Springs treasure map, as well as all the combat and chest challenges too.

Fortnite Blockbuster Challenge Week 3 Battle Star:

If you head into your locker when you’ve finished off the weekly challenges and go to Loading Screen, you’ll find “A Looming Threat” - which shows heroes like Carbide and Valor standing over a hologram of the Fortnite map and Omega.

Toward the bottom left of the Loading Screen picture, there’s a faint outline of a Battle Star in the south of the island, south of Dusty Divot and west of Fatal Fields.

It might look like blue mush, but it's there - honest.

If you translate that location to the in-game Fortnite map, you get to a hill just outside Fatal Fields, north of Lucky Landing and northeast of Flush Factory.

It’s quite an easy place to get to if you glide straight there from the Battle Bus. Finding the secret Battle Star grants you 10 more to add onto your season Battle Pass progress. Every little helps on the way to that coveted Omega skin.

Fortnite patch 4.2 was delayed because of issues with the new burst rifle, meaning you couldn’t complete the Blockbuster challenge properly when it was first released - but those problems have now been fixed.
