Finding Named Locations is one of Fortnite's many Weekly Challenges.

Completing Visit the Centre of Named Locations will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Season 5 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 do you complete Visit the Centre of Named Locations?

For the Week 7 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Visit the Centre of Named Locations (4 total, 5 Battle Stars)

Other challenges this week include Dusty Divot Treasure Map location and Search a Chest stages.

Visiting Named Locations is a relatively simple one - at least in theory - as it literally means you need to reach the centre of four locations that are named on the map - for example Tilted Towers, or Anarchy Acres.

The only catch is you need to reach the actual centre of that location, and raise a flag, in order for it to count - and you need to reach four in one game to complete the challenge.

Here's what the flagpole looks like as you approach it:

And here's what it looks like once the flag is raised:

Your best bet is to try to choose some quiet ones - so no Tilted Towers, at least if you want to finish the challenge quickly!

When you get close to the centre of a Named Location you'll begin to hear the twinkling sound of the flagpole - get close to it and it'll automatically raise your flag, counting as one of your four visits.

Do this a total of four times to 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.


Fortnite Season 8 skins, Battle Pass and emotes are here! And so of course are all the usual Fortnite Challenges that come with it each week. There's a new vehicle - here are the Fortnite Baller locations and how to use The Baller, and of course there are some standout tasks as always too, and so we've assembled pages on how to search the magnifying glass Treasure Map loading screen location in Fortnite, visit the furthest North, South, East and West locations in Fortnite, the various Fortnite Pirate Camp and Pirate Cannon locations and find the Fortnite giant face locations in the jungle, desert and snow. There are also Fortnite Discovery Battle Star locations to find, too, which are worth ticking off each week to save you a last-minute rush!


Fortnite Named Locations

Though you need to find four locations, there are of course plenty of named locations on the map - twenty, in fact - meaning it's just a case of choosing the best ones for your particular game.

Our advice is to look for four that are reasonably close together, and towards the end of the Battle Bus' journey, so that there are fewer people around to get in your way - we chose Flush Factory, Lucky Landing, Fatal Fields and Salty Springs in one game, for instance, and managed it on the first try - just!

Here are all 20 listed and marked on the map, just to be extra clear - more than enough to complete the challenge of course!
