Fortnite: Shifty Shafts treasure map location

If you need Battle Stars, then you’re in luck - you get ten of them for completing this week’s location challenge by following the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts. As the end of season five draws near you’re going to need every last Battle Star if you want to make it to tier 100, so here’s the exact Shifty Shafts treasure map location.

In the last few times they’ve appeared, the maps have actually been quite close to the named locations in the treasure they promise. You’ve got a bit farther to go this time, but the area is still easy to drop onto.

Salty Springs Treasure Map location:

You don’t have to search out the actual treasure map to make the Battle Star appear, but we’ll show you it here so you can get your bearings. It shows a staggered mountain with a pointed peak.

The compass point in the top right shows that you’re heading to the south side of that mountain.

You can find that mountain just north of Salty Springs. To find the Battle Star you need to head over to the south side that overlooks Salty with the tree and the rock.

If you miss the platform, try breaking one of the large rocks scattered around, the bricks you gather should be enough to build up to.

Here's what it looks like:

One more thing: be careful There are plenty of floor spawns around the mountain so other players will probably shoot at you while you’re going for the treasure. Be quick.
