For this Week 6 Challenge, you are tasked with the following:

  • Search where the knife points on the Treasure Map loading screen (1 total, 5 Battle Stars)

To complete the challenge that has you find the Knife Point Treasure Map location, you need to do one pretty simple thing: find the location and visit it - not unlike the Magnifying Glass from earlier in the season

Here's the Knife Point location at a glance:

Specifically, you need to head to quadrant J6, between the desert race track and Lonely Lodge.


There, you'll find a number of trees not far from the edge of the desert.


You're looking for a dark patch in particular for the knife point location - it's where where the Battle Star will appear when you're nice and close.


Press the button prompt and the Battle Star is yours, completing the challenge. Nice one!

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.

Remember if you're struggling at all, wait until a later week to complete this challenge - since everyone will be going for it on its debut - or go for an team-based mode where players are more spread out in their landings.

By the way - if you were wondering how the Treasure Map is, it's the same as the Magnifying Glass from earlier in the season - it's found on the loading screen as part of Season 8, as seen here:
