Fortnite Season 8 Hidden Tier Guide: Battle Stars, Banners

Let our map guide you to Battle Royale's Hidden Banners and Tiers.

The Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass chugs along and if you’ve completed all seven of a given week’s Weekly Challenges, you’re ready to claim your reward. On odd-numbered week, a secret hidden tier comes into play. On even-numbered weeks you’ll get a hidden banner instead. Tracking down these mysterious bonuses might sound like more trouble than they’re worth, but we’ve mapped out their exact locations to make things as easy as possible for you, our beloved reader.

Where to Find the Fortnite Season 8 Week 9 Hidden Tier

As shown below, the tier emblem can be found on the deck of the viking ship south-right of Snobby Shores. With everybody focused on that fancy new pirate ship, we’re glad to see Battle Royale’s original big ship get some love.

Where to Find the Fortnite Season 8 Week 10 Hidden Banner

This week’s Hidden Banner is right smack-dab in the middle of the action, located near a broken down government vehicle on the west side of the excavated remains of Loot Lake. I know that our map (below) doesn’t appropriately reflect the level of digging that has gone on at Loot Lake over the last couple of weeks, but the location marked by the arrow is still accurate! So no sweat! This whole map will probably be invalid in a couple weeks anyway, so we’re flying fast and loose, baby.

Remember that the Hidden Tier/Banner won’t spring into view until you’re within a few tiles, so don’t panic if you can’t see it as you land! And as always, be kind to your neighbors who are also trying to get the emblem. You can kill each other just as dead after everyone gets the tier.

If the Hidden Tier/Banner fails to show up at all, that means there’s a challenge somewhere in a previous week that still needs to be completed. Acquiring a Hidden Tier adds a full tier added to your battle pass, or an equivalent amount of account XP if you’ve already hit level 100. Meanwhile, finding a Hidden Banner will add it to your pool of available banners in the locker.
