Fortnite Week 6: Where Knife Points On Treasure Map Loading Screen Guide (Season 8 Challenge Location)
X marks the spot.
Season 8 of Epic's hit battle royale game Fortnite rolls on with another new set of challenges to complete across PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, and mobile devices. Week 6's challenges run the gamut from visiting animal-shaped structures to finding the highest elevations on the island, but one task that may throw you for a loop is to search where the knife points on the Treasure Map loading screen. Fortunately, this guide is here to help you out.
Much like the similar challenge from Week 4, all you need to do is look where the knife rests on the Treasure Map loading screen (pictured below), then head to that location to find a free Battle Star. What makes this a bit tricky is that the map isn't labeled, so if you aren't familiar with the layout of the island, it may not be entirely clear where you need to go, but the Battle Star can be found near Lonely Lodge.
Specifically, the star will appear in the middle of a forest located in-between Lonely Lodge and the racetrack north of Paradise Palms, near the top of quadrant J6. Pick it up like you would any other item, then finish the match and you'll complete the challenge. If you need more help finding it, you can watch us collect the Battle Star in the video at the top of this guide.
There are still a few weeks remaining in Fortnite Season 8, so you still have time to complete any outstanding challenges from earlier weeks and unlock all the new Battle Pass rewards. If you need help finishing them, you can find tips and guides for all of the trickier tasks in our complete Fortnite Season 8 challenges roundup.
Week 6's challenges follow shortly after the release of Fortnite's 8.20 content update, which added another new weapon to the game: the Boom Bow. Unlike typical bows, this one has shotgun shells on its arrow tips which will explode upon impact. On top of that, the update brought back the Sniper Showdown LTM and gave a buff to peppers, one of the new scavenged items recently added to the game.
