Our Fortnite Shifty Shafts Treasure map guide explains how to solve this Season 5 Week 9 puzzle, and follow the treasure map found in Shifty Shafts to locate the hidden Battle Stars.

A new treasure hunt is due to get under way later on this week, and this Week 9 challenge tasks you to first of all track down a treasure map in Shifty Shafts, and then find the hidden Battle Stars based on the clues provided.

The good news is that you don't actually have to find that treasure map first in order to activate the challenge, as it's automatically added to your list of Week 9 challenges. The bad news is that you do still need to identify the exact location of your reward based on what are often rather opaque clues.

In our guide to completing the Shifty Shafts treasure map location, we've taken all of the guess work out of the process for you, and explained exactly where to get your free Battle Stars. This week's solution comes courtesy of ShuffleGamer.

Give them a thumbs-up and consider subscribing if you found their work helpful:

  • Open up the map and look for the small hill located just below Dusty Divot and directly up from the “Y” in Salty Springs.
  • Build your way up to the spot or just land there in a fresh game.
  • You'll know you're in the right place when you can look around and see a big white house as you pan.
  • Consider coming back here in a few days after the patch goes live. There are going to be a lot of people trying to get their stars and it's going to be messy...

It's a pretty easy one this week then! Hopefully our Shifty Shafts treasure map guide has given you everything you need to get this one solved, and a few bonus Battle Stars to your stash.
