Visit a Wooden Rabbit, a Stone Pig and a Metal Llama
This week, the developers have added cute little animal structures (made out of building materials) around the island. The three structures have been noted on the map above. The white star is for the rabbit, the pink arrow is for the pig and the yellow triangle is for the llama!
Visit the Five Highest Elevations on the Island
As you might expect, Polar Peak and the massive new volcano are part of the 5 highest points on the Fortnite map this season. But, where are the other 3? We’ve marked the locations on the map above!
The 5 highest elevations are located on the mountain near Frosty Flights, the peaks northeast of Snobby Shores, Polar Peak, and of course at the top of the volcano.
Search Where the Knife Points on the Treasure Map Loading Screen
As you can see in the image above, the “knife” indicating where to search doesn’t look much like a knife at first glance. But, moving past that, you’ll also notice that this “knife” is indicating a location just north of where the desert biome of Paradise Palms ends (and just south of the abandoned mansion near the coast). There, you’ll find a little circle of trees with the Battle Star you’re searching for in the middle!
