How to Find Fortnite Secret Battle Star for Season 8, Week 5 – Banner Replaced


Following the launch of update v8.20, it appears as though the Fortnite Season 8, Week 5 loading screen has been leaked. While each loading screen provides players with a few hints, we’ve detailed how to find the Fortnite Secret Battle Star (Banner has been replaced) for this week below.

Fortnite Season 8, Week 5 Loading Screen

The loading screen appears to detail the Secret Battle Star resting on the left-hand side of the lava. While it is extremely faint and hard to see, you may need to zoom in very close to even notice it. If you don’t manage to see it, we’ve highlighted the location in red below.

Interestingly, the loading screen appears to showcase a tree on the left side which isn’t featured in the actual game. Epic Games’ reasoning behind this is currently unknown.

Fortnite Secret Battle Star Location – Week 5

It seems that the Week 5 Fortnite Secret Banner will be located within the Volcano region. Coincidentally, this is very similar to the Secret Banner location last week.

For players unfamiliar with the game, we’ve also detailed bullet points of how to obtain the Battle Star below.

  • To begin with, players will want to head slightly South of the Volcano landmark.
  • Then, you’ll need to make your way over to the two lava steep waterfalls.
  • Not on ground level, but on the first lavafall should be where the Fortnite Secret Battle Star is resting.

If you are still completely bamboozled as to whereabouts the Fortnite Secret Battle is lurking, we’ve circled this area on the map.

Fortnite Secret Battle Star Location Week 5

If you find yourself completing the prior steps, yet not receiving the Battle Star it may be because you haven’t completed all of the Week 5 challenges.

Remember, as of Thursday at 2 PM GMT, when Epic Games release the official challenges, this location will be heaving with players. If you are trying to acquire this week’s Fortnite Secret Batte Star, you may want to be a little cautious of other players doing the exact same thing.
