'Fortnite' Search Between Mysterious Hatch, Giant Rock Lady, and Flatbed
One of the most classic Fortnite: Battle Royale challenge types, the beloved “search between,” has returned to Season 7 for the second time this season. But now, the landmarks are wordier than ever, and it’s all happening in the midst of the ice storm.
Week 8 began Thursday morning and with it came a new task to “search between a mysterious hatch, a giant rock lady, and a precarious flatbed.” The mysterious hatch obviously refers to the underground bunker that’s been in Wailing Woods for quite some time, though it was only much more recently made accessible to players. The other two landmarks are located in the nearby area east and south of central Wailing Woods.
Per usual, the challenge requires that players land at a very specific destination somewhere in between the three landmarks. There’s also a helpful patch of dirt that you can aim for.
Watch the video above to see the precise location, but also feel free to reference our zoomed-in map.
The specific destination is atop a large hill close to the eastern coast, directly east of central Wailing Woods. There isn’t a lot in that area in terms of prime looting destinations, and aside from enemy players also looking to capture the battle star in that location, there shouldn’t be too much in the way of foot traffic.
Another new challenge this week has players build 250 structures, so assuming you survive long enough to do a bit of resource-collecting, you might as well blindly build random structures in the woods until the end of the match.
The in-game countdown says that Fortnite Season 7 doesn’t end until February 27, 2019. So players have only about a month left 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.
