Fortnite Season 5 Guide: Search Between A Covered Bridge, A Waterfall & The 9th Green
OUR LATEST VIDEOS
The ever present treasure hunt challenge returns. The final week’s treasure hunt is of the ‘landmark’ variety, challenging you to find the treasure nestled between three specifics landmarks. The landmarks this week are: a covered bridge, a waterfall and the 9th green (Lazy Links’ final hole).
You can skip straight to the location of the treasure if you already know where it is, bypassing quite a large bit of the challenge. So, if you’re not interested in how the treasure is found – or you’re in a hurry – just skip to the final section of the guide. For the curious amongst us, read on.
For those that want a hint, but not the full answer revealed, I’ve provided a picture of the map with the landmarks and the general area the treasure is buried, circled in red.
For those that want to see the answer as quickly as possible, or are just curious about the landmarks, I present a picture with each specific landmark circled and a small description of each location.
The covered bridge is the circle in pink, the waterfall is circled in blue and the 9th green is circled in orange. The ultimate goal, the treasure, is circled in red.

The covered bridge in question isn’t a particularly unique landmark as there is more than one of them on the map. The bridge in question is one of the roofed bridges that crosses the map’s river. It is located towards the northern end of the river, situated between Lazy Links, Risky Reels and Tomato Temple. It is located at G3 on the main map’s grid.

Not a landmark many players would typically see. As the river running across the spine of map flows off the northern edge island and into the ocean, it forms a waterfall. As there is no loot out here and going right to the edge of the map to spot the waterfall isn’t something people would do in a typical game, it might exist people’s blind spots. The waterfall is located at the northmost edge of the map, near Risky Reels and Lazy Links. This appears as G2 on the main map’s grid.

This one tripped me up at first as I was searching between the two aforementioned landmarks and the ninth hole’s tee. However, it specifically states the green. For those of you who know nothing about golf (I don’t blame you), the green is the name for the section of the course the hole is in (the putting section), this shifts the search area a bit to the west compared to using the tee (the bit where you take your first swing from). This appears as F2 on the main map’s grid.

Using the above three landmarks will lead you to a small white shack resting just east of the ninth hole’s tee. On the eastern side of this shack is a small bald patch of grass. The treasure (like usual) rests on this bald patch of grass. Located at G2 on the main map’s grid.
For the first time in a few weeks, Epic has reintroduced an in-depth scavenger hunt challenge worthy of an in depth guide.
