Week 6 of Season 10 of Fortnite is well underway, and that means a whole host of bonus challenges for players to take on while they engage in the main battle royale gameplay. Yet, Fortnite players are going to have to look beyond the current "Boogie Down" challenges if they want to uncover this week’s secret Battle Star.
As a reminder, uncovering the locations of Fortnite’s Battle Stars is handled a bit differently this time around than in previous Seasons. In order to find the Stars and gain their instant tier-ups, players have had to complete a mission consisting of a series of themed challenges every week. Doing this unlocks a loading screen that comes with clues to the location of that specific week’s Star.
This week, the mission is “The Return.” The return in question is that of the cube-powered floating island that made its way back into Fortnite for Season 10, and as such, players will have to take on challenges somewhat centered around its presence in the area surrounding Fatal Fields.
Fortnite's 'The Return' Challenges
A number of the challenges are currently live, but according to data miners, the full set is as follows:
Sniper rifle eliminations (0/1)
Outlast opponents in solos or duos mode (0/150)
Deal damage with scoped weapons to opponents (0/500)
Search ammo boxes at Fatal Fields or Lonely Lodge (0/7)
Use different throwable items in a single match (0/2)
Land on top of a floating island and a meteor (0/2)
Visit Loot Lake and Sunny Steps in the same match (0/2)
Where to Find the Season 10 Week 6 Secret Battle Star
Per the usual, players will only have to beat three challenges out of the seven to unlock the loading screen clue. Whereas previous weeks’ clues merely teased the location of the hidden Battle Stars, this week’s shows where its Star can be found. Look closely at the image at the top of this article, and it’s possible to see the silhouette of the Battle Star on the dock sticking out into the pond at Fatal Fields’ southern edge. Players then need simply head to the dock’s edge, and the Star should materialize for them to collect. Once that’s done, they’ll be free to move on to trying to find where Fortnite’s “no dancing” signs are and completing the other challenges the game has to offer.
Like all of the loading-screen-based challenges, The Return will only be available until Week 6 is over. Players will have until Thursday, September 12, at 6:00 AM PT to take on the challenges and uncover the Battle Star.
Fortnite is available on Mobile, PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.
