Finding the Shifty Shafts 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.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. There are, however, other Fortnite Challenges as part of Fortnite Season 7, including Shooting Gallery locations, Golden Balloon locations, sundial, oversized cup of coffee and giant dog's head locations and Expedition Outpost locations. There are also additional Challenges - including Coins on Featured Creative Islands and Motel and RV Park locations, too. Getting things ready for the arrival of the Season 8 release date? Make sure you have found all the Snowfall secret Battle Star locations and Fortnite Prisoner stages.

How the Shifty Shafts treasure map works

For the Week 9 Challenges, you are tasked with the following:

  • Follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts (1 total, 10 Battle Stars)

Another challenge this week is the Stone Heads locations.

Shifty Shafts 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.


Getting things ready for the arrival of the Season 8 release date? Make sure you have found all the Snowfall secret Battle Star locations and Fortnite Prisoner stages. You can do so by completing each week's set of Fortnite Challenges - the latest including Shooting Gallery locations, Golden Balloon locations, sundial, oversized cup of coffee and giant dog's head locations and Expedition Outpost locations. There are also additional Challenges - including Coins on Featured Creative Islands and Motel and RV Park locations, too.


Shifty Shafts treasure map location

Shifty Shafts is located in the rough centre of the map - just south of Tilted Towers. However, you don't need to go there at all to pick up the treasure - just follow the instructions below.

You'll need to go to the mountain that's just south-west of Dusty Divot. It's unlike any other - tall and thin, with multiple cliffs going all the way up, some with camp sites on them. It's in map quadrant F6.

You're looking for the cliff about halfway up, on the south-east side. If you are flying in from the north-east, it's the one on the left, like so:

Land there, and on the outer edge, the Treasure will appear when you are close enough. Grab it with the button prompt and it's yours.
