Fortnite Blockbuster is an additional set of Challenges to complete as part of the Season 4 Battle Pass.
The aim is to complete all Challenges from any given week. Do this a total of seven times out of any 10 weeks from Season 4, and you'll unlock an exclusive skin - The Visitor.
Not only that, but each stage of the Blockbuster challenge gives you additional secret Battle Star locations to find.
Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. That said, there are still plenty of other Fortnite Challenges as part of the Fortnite Season 9 Battle Pass. These include finding oversized phone, big piano and giant Dancing Fish Trophy locations, plus Fortnite Air Vent locations and Fortnite Sky Platform locations. There are also new Fortnite Fortbyte locations to discover and Utopia Battle Star locations and a new Victory Umbrella to earn, too. And, for a limited time only, there's the Fortnite John Wick event.

Fortnite Blockbuster explained and how to unlock The Visitor
Each completed stage of the Blockbuster challenge unlocks a new loading screen. If you view these loading screens closely, it actually hints at the location of a secret Battle Star location on the map.
Finding this in the game will then give you an additional Tier towards your Season 4 Battle Pass progress. Note that you need to have unlocked that specific loading screen before it will appear on the map.
When you have completed all seven weeks, a new skin - The Visitor - is yours. You don't have to collect the secret Battle Star locations for its to appear in your Locker - they are simply to progress your Battle Pass progress.
The Visitor is based on the meteor and superhero theme of Season 4, and comes with multiple customisation options if you want to change its appearance.
Though completing a complete set of challenges in a week isn't too difficult, it can be time intensive if you've left it until the last minute. You have until the Season 5 release date to unlock it, otherwise it'll likely be gone forever. Good luck!
Blockbuster Battle Star locations at a glance
Regardless of the order you'll complete a week of Season 4 Challenges, the order of the loading screens and their subsequent Battle Star locations will be the same.
Here they all are at a glance, with more detailed descriptions afterward:
If you have more than one unlocked, you are welcome to collect them in any order you like, too.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 1
Head to the prison in the north-west part of Moisty Mire. On the north-east most corner, at the very top, is the Battle Star. The easiest way to reach it is by gliding from the Battle Bus, but it'll be possible to run up the stairs below and build up, too.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 2
You'll find this on the far west side of the map, south of Haunted Hills. Follow the path south, and head into the grass to the west. Among a group of trees is a patch of dirt, with a house to the south within sight. There's where you'll find the Battle Star.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 3
South-east of X is a round-shaped mountain. Skydive of build up to it, and the Battle Star is among the cluster of trees on the south edge.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 4
You'll want to head to the rocket base embedded in the mountain just north-east of Snobby Shores. Head through the hole at the top, and land on the south-most strut. The Battle Star will appear there.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 5
Head to the giant crab on the south-coast of the map, in-between Lucky Landing and Moisty Mire. Land on top - either by gliding or building up - to find the Battle Star in the middle.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 6
Head to the football stadium in the north-west part of the map. Parked outside to the north is a red food truck. The Battle Star will appear above it.
Interestingly, some sources point to this appearing on Greasy Grove. We suspect the van moved when the stadium was erected, but if for whatever reason the red food truck doesn't offer you the Battle Star outside of the stadium, then try in Greasy Grove - you are looking for the far south-west corner, on the road.
The Season 9 Battle Pass has arrived - which you can read in more detail thanks to Fortnite patch notes - alongside new Fortnite Challenges. These include finding oversized phone, big piano and giant Dancing Fish Trophy locations, plus Fortnite Air Vent locations and Fortnite Sky Platform locations. There are also new Fortnite Fortbyte locations to discover and Utopia Battle Star locations and a new Victory Umbrella to earn, too. And, for a limited time only, there's the Fortnite John Wick event.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 7
This one is arguably the easiest of all to locate. Head to Dusty Divot, and enter the main complex in the middle of the crater.
There you'll find the comet that crashed into the map at the start of the season. Above it is the seventh and final Battle Star. It's a slightly awkward jump up to the centre, but we found going by the left side seemed to do the trick.
Blockbuster Battle Star location 8 explained
When you have unlocked all of the above, you then receive an eighth wallpaper:
Though this has a Battle Star - on the arm of The Visitor, the skin you unlock alongside this eighth wallpaper - alluding to a new location to find, there actually isn't a Battle Star to find at all.
Why would this wallpaper be released at all? It's all for story reasons, explaining how the rocket towards the end of Season 4 took off, triggering the space and time rifts throughout the map, and the start of Season 5. Not long to wait until we know exactly is in store!
