How to Find the Hidden Banner in 'Fortnite' Season 8, Week 4
All hail King Peely!
Ongoing Discovery challenges continue in Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 8 in Week 4, which kicked off Thursday morning.
The latest loading screen, unlocked only after players complete four full sets of weekly challenges, features a Peely king being carried by his many banana servants.
The real question here is obvious: Was Epic Games always planning on this loading screen or did they create it after they saw how exalted Peely was among fans?
From the looks of the loading screen, it seems like the army of bananas is carrying the king up to the top of the volcano … to do what exactly? Dump their monarch into the fiery pit of death below? The story of Fortnite: Battle Royale never has and never will make much sense, but at least the clue here is rather clear.
The specific location being teased is very close to the top of the volcano, and it’s on the side of a torch pedestal that faces west. You can clearly see Sunny Steps in the background. Oddly enough, this Discovery location is very close to the one from Week 3. Maybe it makes sense that these challenges would focus mostly on the new areas in Season 8.
For anyone that needs specific guidance, the video at the top of this article from YouTuber garandhero offers a succinct and very clear demonstration. (Be sure to check out his YouTube page for even more Fortnite videos). But we’ve also got a map.
Look for the torch pedestal with a few ceramic pots around the base that’s location right at the end of that portion of the dirt path. Again, this hidden banner will only appear to players who have completed four full weeks of challenges and unlocked the banana parade loading screen.
Unlike Snowfall, with Discovery players can complete all the challenges from any week to unlock the next loading screen and therefore the secret prize. Before, specific challenge sets corresponded to particular loading screens. The difference here hardly matters for the more hardcore players, but for anyone who waits until the end of the season to complete all their challenges and get the loading screen prizes, the whole process has become just a little bit easier.
Based on the in-game countdown to the end of Season 8, players have until Wednesday, May 8 to complete this and other challenges.
Fortnite: Battle Royale Season 8, Week 5 should begin the morning of March 28, 2019.
