Battle Royale’s Season 8 Discovery challenges continue in Week 3 with a fun new loading screen inspired by Indiana Jones, except this time around, it’s the female Sidewinder skin stealing some treasure from an ancient ruin.
Week 3 kicked off Thursday morning a little bit later than usual, but once players complete seven new challenges — like finding where the magnifying glass sits on the treasure map loading screen — they’ll be able to claim a secret battle star.
Similar to Snowfall in Season 7, Discovery awards any player who completes all seven weekly challenges with a secret loading screen leading to a battle star or hidden banner. Doing all of this is a lot of work, but for the most dedicated Fortnite players, it’s essential.
The third Discovery loading screen features Sidewinder, the red-eyed snake-charmer, stealing a golden snake statue from a shrine as arrows whiz by her head,v buck generator no doubt triggered from some kind of trap. There are some serious Indiana Jones vibes here.
In the lower-left corner of the map is the clue we need, painted on the wall in white. It shows a presumably different shrine, but one that players might’ve noticed since the start of Season 8.
This particular location bears similar architecture to Sunny Steps, but it’s actually located a good distance to the south, east of the volcano. The shrine faces east and is at the end of a dirt path that’s visible from the map and the sky. The secret battle star will appear at the bottom of the steps, so if you think it looks like a face, that’s on the tip of the nose.
