'Fortnite' Week 1 Find Secret Battle Star Location & Utopia Loading Screen

Fortnite Season 9 continues with a new set of skin-focused challenges called Utopia Challenges. These operate just like the Blockbuster, Snowfall and Discovery Challenges before them, but they have a new name that suits the theme of the Season 9 Battle Pass. We'll tell you where to find the Secret Battle Star using Loading Screen #1.

    • Stage 2: Ride the Slipstream around Mega Mall
  • Visit all Sky Platforms (seven) [Guide]
  • Deal damage to an opponent within 10 seconds after using a Shadow Bomb (200)

After completing each challenge you'll unlock Loading Screen #1. Unlike some of the past screens we've seen, the secret to this one is pretty simple. There are four coordinates marked on the Machine Gun featured prominently in the image: I5, I6, J5 and J6. All you have to do is go to where those coordinates meet to find the Secret Battle Star.
