Finding the Salty Springs treasure map location is the objective of one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.
Completing it will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Season 4 rewards.
Note you'll need to be a Battle Pass holder in order to undertake this challenge.
If you're just getting started, our Fortnite Battle Royale tips and tricks can provide some helpful hints.
How the Salty Springs treasure map works
For the Week 3 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:
- Follow the treasure map found in Salty Springs (1 total, 10 Battle Stars)
Another to complete this week is searching for Rubber Ducky locations.
Salty Springs hides a map that paves the way to a hidden treasure. Note only those with the Battle Pass will be able to see it, and on the map features a diagram of where the treasure can be found.
However, you can skip this first step and go straight to the treasure location - as explained later on this page - if you prefer to do so.
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.
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.
Salty Springs treasure map location
Salty Springs is located in the middle of the map, just south of the huge crater that is Dusty Divot. It's here you'll find the Treasure Map, but you actually don't need to go there at all to get the Treasure.
Whether you find the map or not, the destination you need to go to is the race track, which is the squiggly line found on the far east coast of the map, just north of Moisty Mire:
Specifically, you are aiming for the south side. The race track looks like a spiral, and you are aiming for what you could describe is the 'centre' of the south part of the spiral, pointing north-east.
There's some tires there, if that helps narrow down the position. When you land, the Treasure should appear. Use the button prompt to collect it.
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, so make sure you keep going.
