Treasure map challenges have finally made their return to Fortnite in Week 8 of Season 8. This free challenge is a bit different than previous treasure map challenges, as it is broken into two parts. The first part has players searching for a treasure map signpost in Paradise Palms. We’ll show you where to go to find the signpost and how to complete the next step so that you can move on to some of the other challenges for Week 8.
Search the Treasure Map Signpost in Paradise Palms
In past seasons, treasure map challenges could be completed without having to discover the treasure map first. You could simply go straight to the treasure location if you knew where it was. It appears that the new treasure map challenges have players hunting for the map itself first.
The first stage of the challenge says to search a treasure map signpost in Paradise Palms. The signpost isn’t too hard to find. If you wander around the center of Paradise Palms long enough, you’ll spot the signpost in an alleyway near the Reboot Van. Approach the signpost and interact with it to reveal the treasure map, completing stage one.
Once you have searched the treasure map signpost in Paradise Palms, you should see a map that looks like the one below.
If you’re somewhat familiar with Fortnite’s Season 8 map, then you may recognize this location as the airfield runway in Frosty Flights, over on the far west side of the snow biome.
According to the ‘X’ on the map, the treasure is located at the far west end of the runway, just beyond the hangars. If you’re searching the correct location, then a golden Battle Star should pop up. Grab the star to complete stage two of the challenge.
