We're heading through Season 7 of Epic's hit battle royal game, Fortnite, and it's a new series of challenges to complete on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch and mobile devices. Clearing these missions will earn you Battle Stars, which in turn levels up the Battle Pass and unlocks the new season 7 rewards. There is an additional incentive to complete all the challenges of a given week, but you will also remove a related Snowfall challenge, which will give you a special download screen that has a clue where a free item is.
The current item will either be a battle star – which strengthens your match with one team – or a banner – that can be used as a profile icon ̵
Fortunately, the loading screen you receive to complete the Week 5 snow challenge is aimed at you. As you can see below, the screen Trog – one of the new rails introduced to Fortnite in season 7 – has a little tea party inside a snow cave. However, if you look in the top left corner of the picture, you will be able to see a match star just above the wooden cabin in the background.
Cave depicted in the cargo screen is located in the southwestern part of the map, in quadrant B9 between Frosty Flights and Happy Hamlet. Go to the area at the start of a game and you will find a hole leading to the cave. Enter it and you will see the Battle Star exactly where it was plagued: up on the wooden hut. Use the stairs to reach the roof and collect the Battle Star to equalize the Battle Pass with one team.
As usual, this Battle Star will not appear to all Fortnite players. You must first complete five weeks of challenges and unlock the corresponding loading screen before the item appears in the game, so you can't just go to the right spot and collect it if you haven't put in the necessary work. If you need more help finding Battle Star, see us collecting it in the video above to see exactly where it is.
It's still a couple of weeks left in season 7, which means you still have plenty of time to complete this season's challenges and unlock their new rewards. You will find tips for all this season's more difficult quests in our complete season 7 challenge guide. You will also find the whereabouts of Season 7's other free fighting stars and banners using the guides below.
