Fortnite Week 7 Road Trip: How To Get Free Secret Battle Pass Tier (Season 5)
Here's how to get your hands on another free Battle Star.
Fortnite's Week 7 challenges on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile, bringing the running tally of Season 5 challenges to a whopping 49. As usual, completing these will level your Battle Pass up and unlock Season 5 rewards, but there's an extra incentive to finish all of the challenges in a given week; doing so will check off a corresponding Road Trip challenge and net you a special loading screen that points to a secret Battle Star hidden around the island.
If you've managed to stay on top of all of the challenges to date and clear Week 7's batch of tasks, you'll unlock the loading screen pictured below. This one depicts a group of characters standing around in shock as another group--dressed in the Legendary Enforcer outfit you receive for completing seven Road Trip challenges--emerges from a Rift atop the motel sign.
The clue to the Battle Star's whereabouts is very subtle this time, but if you peer closely beneath the motel sign, you can see its faint silhouette sitting atop the far end of the brick wall. Head to the motel, which is located to the northwest of Lazy Links, at the start of the match and you'll find the Battle Star waiting about the brick wall just as on the loading screen. Collect it to level your Battle Pass up by one tier, bringing you another step closer to unlocking the Season 5 rewards.
If you need help locating the Battle Star, you can watch us pick it up in the video above. However, as usual, you will need to meet the aforementioned requirements in order to find it; you won't be able to simply go to its hiding spot and collect it unless you've completed seven weeks of challenges and unlocked the corresponding loading screen.
The latest set of weekly challenges arrived a little later than usual, shortly after Epic rolled out Fortnite's 5.30 update. Among them is a new kind of multi-step challenge that requires you to go to specific locations, open a treasure chest, and unlock the next step in the process. Another of Week 7's challenges tasks you with following the treasure map found in Dusty Divot. You can find guides on how to complete all of the missions in our Season 5 challenge roundup.
