Fortnite Knife Point location - Search where the knife points on the Treasure Map explained

How to solve the unusual Fortnite knife point on the treasure map location.

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.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include red and blue lines on the Fortnite map and Rebuilding quests, including finding and destroying a IO Build Jammer. You can also learn how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

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!

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

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:

When you are done, there are plenty of other Challenges to take on this week - so keep playing!
