Fortnite Season 4 Guide: Fifth Blockbuster Challenge Walkthrough
The coolest Fortnite loading screen yet points the way for the latest Blockbuster Challenge.
With the unlocking of week 5’s Battle Pass challenges comes the ability to access the fifth Blockbuster challenge for the season. For the uninitiated, the Blockbuster challenges are ‘hidden’ challenges only accessible once certain prerequisites are met.
To unlock the Blockbuster challenges you must complete all the challenges in a week to progress. There are 7 weeks of Blockbuster challenges and 10 weeks of Battle Pass challenges in total. This means you only need to fully complete 7 weeks to unlock all Blockbuster challenges.
Now you may be thinking, “where is the actual Blockbuster challenge? I only see a picture reward, not a challenge!” Well, here’s how they’re hidden: once you complete a week’s challenge you’ll be gifted a loading screen picture. This picture is the challenge description. Unlike the normal challenges which dole out instructions with words, these loading screen pictures have the instructions hidden on it. Therefore to complete a Blockbuster challenge, you need to decipher the secret location where the treasure is hidden.
In terms of rewards, the Blockbuster challenges are fairly meaty; rewarding 10 Battle Stars (a full Battle Tier). However, unlike other Battle Pass challenges, the Blockbuster reward is not something you can skip to. Other ‘treasure location’ based challenges allow you to skip exploratory steps and go straight to the treasure if you already know where it’s hiding; this is not the case with a Blockbuster treasure. The treasure will not spawn until you’ve completed the prerequisites. This means you need to unlock the relevant loading screen picture for the treasure to spawn, which by extension means completing the standard Battle Pass challenges for the given weeks.
Of the four pictures released, they tend to follow a pattern in how they present the hidden location of the treasure. That is, the location of the treasure is ‘superfluous information’. Put differently, there doesn’t appear to be any correlation between the ‘story’ the picture is telling and where the treasure might be located.
Without further ado, here is the picture for the fifth Blockbuster challenge.
Here’s the Battle Star in the picture:
You’ll notice that the star is above a painted crab. This is one of the animal structures on the perimeter of the map. A giant wooden crab sits on the southeastern corner of the map. This appears as H10 on the main map’s grid.
The treasure simply lies atop this crab. If you’re landing up here, make sure you land on the top of the crab’s head. Otherwise, you’ll have to jump down and mine a decent chunk of wood to get up there as the crab has no path to the top without building you own.
Simply interact with the treasure and you’re done with another Blockbuster challenge.
