Finding the Risky Reels 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 5 rewards. Note you'll need to be a Battle Pass holder in order to undertake this challenge.
How the Risky Reels treasure map works
For the Week 1 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:
- Follow the treasure map in Risky Reels (1 total, 10 Battle Stars)
Another this week are Lightning Bolt locations.
Risky Reels 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.
Risky Reels treasure map location
Risky Reels is located in the far north-west of the map, and was a region added as part of Season 4. However, you don't need to go here first to complete this treasure map location.
The location you need to go is just a stone's throw away - just south of Tomato Town, in map segment G4.
Specifically, you'll want to locate the tunnel south of Tomato Town. On the north side, closest to the town, is a ledge above the entrance.
Get up there - you can do so by foot, or by gliding in from the Battle Bus - and stand on the eastern side.
When you find the right spot, the Risky Reels treasure will appear on the screen. Use the button prompt that appears on the screen to collect it.
