Fortnite may be on the back slope of season 9, but the highly popular battle royale title is as busy as ever. Season 9 Week 7 offers players a variety of challenges such as earning 3 suppressed weapon eliminations and earning 5 eliminations from 5m or less away to complete, and once all of those are done, Fortnite players can find themselves a secret battle star.
As many-a-player may know, developer Epic Games recently changed up its battle star/hidden banner routine with season 9 by having Fortbyte clues replace the banners. Fortbyte 49, hidden in Trog’s Ice Cave, was one of the most recent clues in that department, yet the latest battle star clue can be found in the Fortnite season 9 week 7 loading screen (as seen above).
Players can see the faint markings of a Fortbyte battle star on the lefthand side beneath the platform and the two mysterious figures. Those who have been active thus far in season 9 may recognize this location as the Pressure Plant, a new season 9 area alongside Neo Tilted and Mega Mall that formed after the volcano erupted in season 8.
The easiest method to get to this battle star is to approach Pressure Plant from the direction of the lava and land near the staircase or tower on the left-hand side. Players may need to build a ramp from the nearby metal, just on top of the first set of stairs, which will allow Fortnite players will find the season 9 week 7 battle star beneath the top platform. This will earn players another tier on the Fortnite season 9 battle pass and put them closer to completing the season’s content.
It’s worth mentioning that players will only be able to find one more secret battle start this season when Fortnite season 9 week 9 starts, so those who have been putting getting all these collectibles aside will need to act quickly to finish it up before the end of the season.
