Where to Find the Secret Battle Star in 'Fortnite' Season 7 Week 7

The Ice King cometh.

The latest secret loading screen in Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 7 Week 7 looks and feels like a cheap rehash of the Valkyrie loading screen from Season 6, but this time around, it features the Ice King. And don’t worry, this one will lead you to a secret battle star, and not just a new banner.

Week 7 began Thursday morning, and for anyone looking to hunt down the secret Snowfall battle star, we’ve got all the information right here, including a video guide from YouTuber garandhero. (Be sure to check out his YouTube page for even more Fortnite videos).

Once you complete all seven of the Week 7 challenges — like using Rifts and visiting Expedition Outposts — you’ll unlock a secret loading screen that features the infamous Ice King seated at his throne in the castle located at Polar Peak. It looks like there’s a lot more ice coming out of the throne in the picture, and a battle star is frozen in the top-left corner.

The Ice King looks scarier than ever before in this loading screen.

The loading screen clue is only a little bit misleading, but it’s enough to let players know that the Week 7 secret battle star is indeed located in the throne room of the castle to the left of the throne itself.

Players ought to head close to the center of Polar Peak and enter the castle right through the front doorway, proceeding north on the ground floor to eventually reach the throne. Landing on the roof and hacking through could prove dangerous, even deadly, considering the high ceilings of the throne room.

The throne room is deep inside the castle at Polar Peak.

Unlike other Snowfall secret locations that tend to be more remote, Polar Peak is a popular destination even for players that aren’t looking for secret battle stars. So anyone attempting to claim this one should be extra careful.

The in-game countdown says that Fortnite Season 7 doesn’t end until February 27, 2019. So players have plenty of time to complete this and other challenges before Season 8 is upon us, bringing all sorts of new map changes and challenges with it.

Here’s an in-depth look at everything included in the Fortnite Season 7 Premium Battle Pass.
