What does Search between a Pool, a Windmill and an Umbrella in Fortnite mean?

For the Week 2 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Search between a Pool, a Windmill and an Umbrella (Hard)

Another on the list includes searching for Forbidden Dance locations.


This means you must find these objects on the map, and look between them until you find something. But what?

Turns out this is a secret treasure. Once you spot it, all you have to do is collect it. Doing so will complete the challenge, and give you your rewards.

As with other challenges, you must do these as you play matches (you cannot enter the map without other players), so you'll have to avoid combat encounters as you attempt to find each location.

Note you need to complete the match in order for the challenge to be finished - quitting the match as soon as you collect it won't work.

We have a list of all the rewards from the current Season Battle Pass, as well as how to beat the latest Challenges, such as Week 4's Ice Cream Truck locations and how to Vehicle Tower, Rock Sculpture and Circle of Hedges.

Pool, a Windmill and an Umbrella location

The specific location the game is referring to is in the northern-part of the map, specifically E3, west of Anarchy Acres.


Heading to this quadrant and you'll see an umbrella shape cut out of the ground, pointing north. Use this as a reference point if you are flying in.


Go just north on this, where the ground rises and there are trees on the mounds. Go between the two right-most trees, until you can see a path with a rocky cliff just ahead.


If you stand in the right position, the treasure will materialise out of thin air. Simply collect it as the on-screen button prompt says, and it'll be yours.

Again, you'll need to go on and complete the match in order for this challenge to register as completed.
