New challenges are now available in Epic Games’ Fortnite: Battle Royale, including one that involves a treasure map in Haunted Hills. Season 4 has nearly concluded, but you still have time to take on challenges if you own the Battle Pass. Week 9 challenges are live across all platforms, providing a slate of seven more objectives for you to complete if you own the Season 4 Battle Pass on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or mobile. Here’s where to find the aforementioned treasure and how to complete all the other challenges now available.
Week 9’s trickiest challenge tasks you to follow the treasure map found in Haunted Hills. Provided you want to do things by the book, you’ll first head to Haunted Hills to get a look at the map, which is pictured below. The map can be found in one of two locations: in a small building just south of the church, or underneath the larger building on the western side. Either way, here’s what you’ll see:
If you know the island’s map well, you may recognize this as showing the silhouettes of Junk Junction’s… junk. Fortunately, that area is located just north of Haunted Hills. Either make your way there next or drop in at the start of the match, and head toward a stack of cars near the northern wall, as directed by the X on the treasure map. Get to the top of the pile and you’ll see the treasure waiting to be picked up. Grab it just as you would open a chest and the challenge is complete.
Epic considers this to be a Hard-tier challenge, which is good news for you–doing it will net you a total of 10 Battle Stars. That helps to rank up your Battle Pass and get your hands on Fortnite’s Season 4 skins and rewards. With Season 5 set to begin in early July, you’ll want to squeeze what you can get out of the current Battle Pass as the rocket threatens to strike.
You can check out a complete list of Week 9 challenges below. These are, for the most part, quite straightforward, tasking you with eliminating opponents with shotguns, elimination opponents in Anarchy Acres, using a shopping cart (luckily, these have been re-enabled), searching chest in Moisty Mire, and dealing explosive weapon damage. One that might give you some difficulty is visiting the center of named locations in a single match. These are marked by large blue beacons, and you’ll know you’ve reached the center when you see a new flag in the center of the area change to your banner.Your best bet to complete this may be to simply stay outside the storm circle and avoid other players as much as possible.
