Despite all of the map changes that were introduced with Fortnite Season 5, there is one thing that has remained mostly the same across each season of Fortnite: treasure hunt challenges. In the first week of Battle Pass challenges for Fortnite Season 5, one of the challenges unsurprisingly tasks players with following a treasure map found in Risky Reels to discover hidden treasure.
Although the Risky Reels treasure map challenge is marked as Hard, it’s much easier when you know exactly where to look. We’ll tell you where to go to complete this challenge and earn some quick XP for Fortnite Season 5.
We found the Risky Reels treasure map in the northeast corner of the yard in a small fenced off area by the dumpsters. You don’t need to find the map itself to complete this challenge, but we’ve included an image of the map anyway in case you wanted to challenge yourself and follow the Risky Reels map on your own.
Risky Reels Treasure Map Solution
The map found in Risky Reels depicts what appears to be a large tunnel. If you are a seasoned Fortnite player, then the first place you probably thought of was the huge tunnel in the hill just south of Tomato Town. If so, you are correct.
If you have no idea where we’re talking about, don’t worry. Just make your way toward Tomato Town and head south. There is a large concrete tunnel built into the hillside.
The treasure is located on the north end of the tunnel, on the upper ledge. You can either land directly on this location from the Battle Bus, or you can walk to the top by taking the stairs inside the tunnel.
Either way, if you are searching the correct location, a golden Battle Star will pop up from the concrete ledge, granting you 10 Battle Stars toward your Season 5 Battle Pass. Collect the star and finish the match normally to ensure your progress is saved.
