Now Playing: Fortnite - Search Where The Magnifying Glass Sits On The Treasure Map Loading Screen (Season 8, Week 3)

The challenges for Fortnite Season 8, Week 3 are now live and, included among them, is one that asks you to do some detective work--or perhaps pirate work--before you go off into the island hunting for Battle Stars. The challenge in question asks players to "search where the magnifying glass sits on the Treasure Map loading screen." Here's where to go and what to do.

As Fortnite challenges go, it isn't actually all that difficult, though the wording is a touch confusing. What it's asking you to do is take a look at the loading screen artwork, which is of a treasure map. On the map is a magnifying glass, and the area it's focused on is where you need to head to during a match. Specifically, it's southwest of Polar Peaks and east of Frosty Flights.

Head to the grid reference C8 and go to the left side of that quadrant, and you'll spot the Battle Star there. Grab it and and get to work on the remaining challenges so you can inch ever closer to getting the cosmetic unlock of your dreams.

We now have three sets of weekly challenges available for Season 8 of Fortnite: Battle Royale. Provided you've been able to complete all of the challenges so far, you'll have also complete three sets of Discovery challenges. Once you do the third, be sure to check out our secret Battle Star guide to help you track down the hidden reward that awaits you.

If you're planning on unlocking everything, or have your heart set on something deep into the Battle Pass, you'll need to spend the time and effort to do challenges each and every week. By doing so, you'll gather Battle Stars and level up the Battle Pass much quicker. To help you along, we'll be creating guides for challenges on a weekly basis. You can stay on top of it all by using our full Season 8 challenges guide.

If you're looking for even more challenges to do, Fortnite's The Getaway Limited Time Mode has returned, along with High Stakes challenges. By completing this extra set of challenges, you can unlock a crowbar Harvesting Tool, Llama back bling, a loading screen, spray, and contrail. Challenges generally involve winning matches in The Getaway LTM, using a specific item, or taking out certain enemies. Those are only available until March 19, so if you're interested in the rewards, you should likely focus on knocking those out before any of the standard Week 3 challenges, which will run until the end of Season 8 (likely sometime in May or June).

As is always the case with Fortnite, there's plenty going on. The recently added Baller vehicle, which came as part of patch 8.10, was temporarily removed from the game by Epic, although it has since returned. While Epic didn't specify exactly why it did this, players had found a glitch that allowed the hamster ball-like vehicle to be launched into the air.
