All hail the king.

Week 4 of Fortnite Season 8 has arrived, and with it a new batch of challenges to complete on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. As usual, clearing this week's challenges will net you more Battle Stars, which in turn will level your Battle Pass up and bring you another step closer to unlocking Season 8's new skins and rewards. But there's another good reason to complete all of the tasks; doing so will also clear one of this season's Discovery challenges, earning you a special loading screen that points to a free Battle Star or Banner hiding somewhere around the island.

Which of those two items you'll be able to find depends on which loading screen you've unlocked, which in turn is determined by how many weekly sets of challenges you've completed this season. If you've finished four weeks' worth of them, you'll receive the loading screen pictured below. This one features a regal Peely being carried up the volcano while a procession of lowlier bananas trails behind. Look closely at the background, however, and you'll be able to spot a Banner hanging from one of the torches lining the path.

That torch marks the spot where this week's free Banner will appear, and it's fortunately very easy to get to. The quickest way to find it is to glide toward the volcano at the beginning of a match. As you can see on the map below, the torch is along the patch leading to the mouth of the volcano. Make your way to it and the Banner will pop up as you approach. Collect it just as you would any other item then finish the match and the Banner will be yours to use as a new profile icon.

If you need another look at where the Banner is hiding, you can watch us collect it in the video at the top of this guide. However, like other secret Banners and Battle Stars, the item will only appear if you've completed enough challenges and unlocked the Peely loading screen; you won't be able to simply go to the right location and expect to find the Banner unless you've fulfilled all the necessary steps.

In other Fortnite news, Epic has recently rolled out the game's 8.11 update, which introduced a new weapon--the Flint-Knock Pistol--and unvaulted the Impulse Grenade. The patch also adjusted the spawn rater for the Baller--this season's new vehicle. You can read the full patch notes here.
