Fortnite Week 8 Location Guide: Search Between Hatch, Giant Rock Lady, Precarious Flatbed (Week 8, Season 7)
As part of Fortnite Season 7, Week 8’s challenges, you’ll need to go on a bit of a Battle Star hunt. One of the challenges in the free section asks you to search between a mysterious hatch, a giant rock lady, and a precarious flatbed. Even if you’re familiar with the island, it can be tricky to remember those locations and then figure out where exactly the Battle Star can be found. So, to make it easier, we’ve done it for you.
The hatch in question can be found in Wailing Woods near to the cabin, while the Giant Rock Lady is south of that just outside the wood, and the precarious flatbed can be found in the east, on the edge of the island overlooking the sea. Triangulate that position like you’re Syed from Lost standing on top of a hill because that seemed to be the only way he knew how to solve any problem for, like, the first two seasons, and you’ll find the Battle Star at grid reference J3.
To make it even easier for you, we’ve put a map of the location below. Remember that you don’t actually have to visit all of those landmarks before going to the location of the Battle Star, just launch yourself out of the Battle Bus and aim to land right on top of it. You can also watch the video above to see us do it, if you need an additional guide to help you along.
To see the other challenges for Season 7, Week 8, check out our full challenge list. As you’ll no doubt have noticed, the island has undergone quite a significant change. On January 18 the orb hovering around Polar Peaks cracked open and the Ice King emerged, bringing with him his horde of monsters. On top of that, the island was blanketed in ice and snow. This marked the start of the new Ice Storm daily challenge series too, where fresh rewards are on offer.
Fortnite’s 7.20 update also included some icy additions for the game, the most notable of which is the Sneaky Snowman, which can be worn as an outfit to blend into the surroundings or can be thrown out to distract enemies. See the full Fortnite patch 7.20 for more details.
