Fortnite secret Battle Star locations from Season X loading screens explained

How to find bonus Battle Stars from loading screens in Fortnite Season X.

Secret Battle Stars are bonus collectables to find as part of the Season X Battle Pass.

To unlock each one, you need to unlock the Loading Screens unlocked from that week's time-limited Challenges.


Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what's changes since? In the new Season 3 Fortnite map, you can use whirlpools, sharks, visit the Catty Corner vault, and collect gnomes at Homely Hills as part of challenges.

Fortnite secret Battle Stars and loading screens in Season X explained

Each week in Fortnite, a new Loading Screen can be unlocked by completing certain challenges. If you view these loading screens closely, it actually hints at the location of a secret Battle Star or Banner location on the map.

Secret Battle Stars and Loading Screens work a little differently in Fortnite Season X. Instead of being tied to completing all Challenges in a specific week, they now appear as part of time-limited Challenges - making them easier to unlock and locate.

Here's examples of what they look like from time-limited challenges from the first two weeks (thanks ItzBullzye on reddit and itsZBG on reddit for these):

Finding additional Battle Stars in the game will then give you an additional Tier towards your Season Battle Pass progress. You can also pick up new Banners, which will give you new customisation options.

Like previous loading screen rewards, you need to have unlocked that specific loading screen before it will appear on the map. Since these only appear for a limited time, make sure you get it in your inventory before it disappears. But once you have it, you have until the end of the season to get it.

Likely because of this, it appears there is no end-of-season bonus skin that will unlock for finding them all.

Seasons 4 to 9 had these skins, named The Visitor, The Enforcer, AIM, The Prisoner and Ruin and Singularity respectively.

As always, you have until the end of the Season to unlock the various Utopia loading screens and skin, otherwise it'll be gone forever. Good luck!

Regardless of the order you'll collect Loading Screens, the order of the Season X Loading Screens and their subsequent Battle Star locations will be the same.
