The final week of Fortnite Season 8--Week 10--is now underway, which means there's one final set of objectives to take on before Season 9 officially begins on May 9. Week 10's challenges are now live across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices, and they ask you to do things like jump through flaming hoops and search a treasure map signpost at Junk Junction. In addition to trying your hand at those, this is also your last chance to level your Battle Pass up and unlock any remaining Season 8 skins and rewards.
As has been the case this whole season, there's an added bonus for completing as many challenges as you can. If you finish all of the tasks from a given week, you'll complete one of Season 8's Discovery challenges, which in turn will unlock a special loading screen. These screens all feature some cool artwork, but the real reason you want to unlock them is because each one contains a subtle clue that points you to a free Battle Star--which levels your Battle Pass up by one tier--or a Banner--which can be used as a profile icon--hidden somewhere around the game's map.
If you've finished all 10 weeks' worth of Season 8 challenges, you'll be able to pick up one final Banner before the season ends. To find it, though, you'll need to look carefully at the loading screen below, which is your reward for completing the tenth Discovery challenge. This screen depicts a group of characters gazing at the mysterious alien vault beneath Loot Lake, which will presumably play a pivotal role in the seasonal changeover as Season 9 begins.
Among the things you can spot in the loading screen is someone in the Peely banana skin and, more importantly, the hidden banner. It's located just near the perimeter of the hole, in the northwest corner.
You can see the Banner's exact location on the map below. We also walk you through where to find it in the video at the top of this guide. However, the usual caveats will apply. This particular Banner won't appear in the game unless you've completed all 10 weeks' sets of challenges and unlocked the above loading screen, so you won't be able to simply go to the right area and collect it unless you've done all the necessary work.
You only have a few more days to complete any outstanding Season 8 challenges and unlock all of this season's Battle Pass rewards. If you need help mopping up some remaining missions, be sure to check out all of the tips we've put together in our complete Fortnite Season 8 challenges guide. You also still have a little more time to take part in Fortnite's Avengers: Endgame crossover event and unlock the new Avengers-inspired rewards.
Fortnite's final update of Season 8, patch 8.51, arrived on May 2. Along with the usual assortment of bug fixes and gameplay tweaks, the update introduced the recently teased Shadow Bomb item, which gives players the ability to turn invisible temporarily and gain additional movement speed and abilities.
