Working out where to search between the Three Boats is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.
If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.
What does Search between Three Boats mean?
For the Week 8 Challenges you are tasked with the following:
- Search between Three Boats (1 total, 10 Battle Stars)
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 find the location it will appear, then all you have to do is collect it. Doing so will complete the challenge.
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.
Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.
Fortnite Three Boats location
The challenge refers to the location of 'three boats'. If you know the map well enough, you know the only body of water is Loot Lake (in the north-west corner of the map), and this is exactly where it refers to.
But where exactly is the treasure? It's on the largest island right in the centre of the island.
Specifically, you'll want to find a pier on the south of the island, underneath the house. The treasure will appear as soon as you get close.
When you do, you'll see a button prompt to collect it. Do so, and the treasure is yours.
