Fortnite's Knife Point location challenge is an unusual one, asking you to Search where the knife points on the Treasure Map loading screen for one of the game's many Fortnite Weekly Challenges.

Completing the Knife Point location task will give you additional XP to help go towards your many Season 8 rewards.

That said, there are still plenty of other Fortnite Challenges as part of the Fortnite Season 9 Battle Pass, with our guides including Wind Turbine locations, Fortnite race track locations for the desert, snowy and grasslands race tracks and holographic Tomato head, Durr Burger head and giant Dumpling head locations. There are also daily Fortnite Fortbyte locations to discover and weekly Utopia Battle Star locations. And, for a limited time only, there's the Downtown Drop LTM with Two Food Trucks locations, Jonesy locations, On Fire Letter locations and Fortnite Hidden Shortcut locations.
