We’re partway through Chapter 2 of Fortnite, and while much has changed this season, one thing that remains the same is challenges. Several sets of missions are available now, including those involve visiting EGO outposts and searching the hidden letter N, but it’s not too late to go back to earlier challenges and knock them out before Season 1 comes to a close. You have until December to clear these tasks and earn their rewards, but there’s an extra bonus if you can complete at least eight challenges from a given set: a special loading screen that contains a clue pointing to a secret letter hidden somewhere around the island.

Collecting all of the letters throughout the season will spell out the word “Fortnite” and unlock a special skin. The first thing you’ll need to do is search the hidden F found in the New World loading screen. If you’re not sure where to look, the guide below will help you find the letter and complete the challenge.

Where Is The Hidden “F” Location?

As the challenge states, the F’s location is hidden in the New World loading screen, which you’ll unlock after completing any eight of the New World challenges. The loading screen in question is the main piece of keyart for Chapter 2, featuring a group of characters standing on a cliff overlooking Fortnite’s new map. You can see the screen below:

If you look closely, you’ll be able to spot the F near Lazy Lake, one of the new named locations that appeared with the start of Chapter 2. The town is nestled in the southeast portion of the island–that’s where you’ll need to go to find the F. You can see exactly where the letter is located on the map below.

How To Complete The Challenge

Once you know where the F is hidden, you’ll need to head to Lazy Lakes to retrieve it. The letter will appear on a hill just east of the town. Make your way up there, then interact with the letter once it pops up to collect it and you’ll complete the challenge, netting you 14,000 season XP.
