Fortnite XP Drop Location Guide: Where To Search Hidden XP Drop In The Chaos Rising Loading Screen

There's no hidden letter to find this week, but you can get a bunch of extra XP if you complete enough challenges.


Fortnite Chapter 2's Week 9 challenges are now live on all platforms. As usual, if you complete eight tasks from the set, you'll unlock a special loading screen that features a subtle clue pointing you to a secret item that's hidden somewhere around the game's map.

Up to this point, that item was a different letter that ultimately spelled out "FORTNITE," but now that all the letters are available, this week's loading screen leads you to an XP drop, which is essentially like the secret Battle Stars from past seasons. If you need help tracking down the XP drop, we show you where it's located below.

Where Is The Hidden XP Drop Location?

As previously mentioned, the clue that'll guide you to the XP drop is hidden in the Chaos Rising loading screen, which you'll unlock after completing eight challenges from that set. The loading screen features a character gazing at different monitors. Look closely at the monitor in the middle of the image and you'll see the XP drop beneath the infamous purple cube that appeared way back in Season 5.

As it turns out, there's a statue of the purple cube in the Kevolution Energy Plant, which is located in the northeastern portion of Steamy Stacks--that's where you'll need to go to find the hidden XP drop. We've marked the location of the area on the map below.

Now that we know where the XP drop is hidden, make your way to the aforementioned Kevolution Energy Plant and the drop will appear on the ground near the cube statue, just as the loading screen teased. Interact with it as you would any other item to collect it and complete the challenge. As was the case with this season's hidden letters, however, the XP drop won't appear on the map until you've unlocked the Chaos Rising loading screen and its corresponding challenge, so you'll first need to complete this week's other missions before you can go pick it up.

The first season of Fortnite Chapter 2 was originally slated to end this month, but Epic recently announced it would be extending the season into February 2020. It's still unclear if that means we still have more weekly challenges to look forward to, but in the meantime, you can find maps and guides for this season's previous missions in our Fortnite Chapter 2 challenges roundup.
