Fortnite Season 4 is officially underway, which means a new Battle Pass and associated weekly challenges are available. There are some new wrinkles for this season, but the challenges are different than in the past. In other words, there is a secret hidden in the challenges of Week 1 that is worth tracking down if you are eager to reach the coveted Omega skin as quickly as possible.
Apart from the Battle Stars you deserve As you complete all seven week-1 challenges, you complete the first part of the blockbuster challenges and get a loading screen called Quiet on the set. This is part of your loadout and you can customize what you see during the loading screen before the game. Reddit user Bfor45 reports that the loading screen provides a very subtle reference to something hidden in the game world.
With the new equipment added to the island in the new update, the image shows a scene near the prison. In the background there is the very faint outline of a Battle Pass symbol (you can see it below the tower just behind the head of the alien). During a game, you can go to that location in the game and find the icon (its location is shown in the map below). Collect it and it will rank your Battle Pass one level up. Keep in mind, however, that you must actually complete all the challenges of Week 1
Blockbuster challenges are one of two new categories of challenges for Season 4. Each blockbuster involves completing all the challenges in a given week, each offering a Reward Screen Reward, as mentioned above. Once you have completed all seven blockbusters – which is not possible until more weekly challenges are available – you will receive an unknown reward that looks as if it were a special skin. At this point, we do not know yet whether future blockbuster rewards will lead to secrets like this free Battle Pass level, but Week 2 certainly does.
Season 4 also offers Carbide Challenges. These are also pretty easy, with anyone who only requires you to reach a certain level during the season. You unlock various style options for the carbide skin that will be granted to players once they purchase the Battle Pass.
