The more things change, the more they stay the same – or so the old adage goes, and despite all of the fresh features appearing in the new chapter and season, we still have the secret collectibles hidden in reward images to track down as in previous seasons. Locating these Fortnite hidden letters in loading screens is key to completing one of the Alter Ego challenges, which will eventually unlock a mystery legendary skin for your locker once all the stages are finished. Collecting all of the F-O-R-T-N-I-T-E letters hidden in loading screens can only be done after you've beaten enough weekly challenges from the Fortnite missions to receive a new image. If you want to 100% complete all of the challenge sets in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1 then read on, and we'll reveal the exact locations to search for the Fortnite hidden letters.
Fortnite hidden letters in loading screens locations
We'll be updating this Fortnite map each week with the locations for all of the Fortnite hidden letters in loading screens.
Week 1 Fortnite hidden letter in loading screen - F
The loading screen unlocked by completing eight of the Fortnite New World challenges for Week 1 shows a group of characters surveying the new island. If you look towards the right hand side of the image, you should be able to spot an F sat at the top of a cliff, which is just to the east of Lazy Lake.
Head to the top of the hill east of Lazy Lake, and you should be able to spot a bare patch of ground behind a rock. Approach it and you'll reveal the Fortnite hidden letter in the loading screen for Week 1, as long as you've completed enough of the challenges already to unlock it.
Week 2 Fortnite hidden letter in loading screen - O
For beating eight of the Fortnite Open Water challenges from Week 2, you'll get a loading screen of a successful fishing trip. Look closely underneath the deck of the clifftop building in the background and you'll see an O tucked away behind the support struts.
This building is found on the north coast at Craggy Cliffs, so head there then follow the top of the cliffs underneath the deck. As you make your way through the supports, the Fortnite hidden letter in the loading screen for Week 2 will pop up by the rocks as long as you've unlocked the challenge for it already.
Week 3 Fortnite hidden letter in loading screen - R
Once you've ticked off eight of the Fortnite Forged In Slurp challenges in Week 3, your reward is this loading screen showing the new Rippley skin emerging from the dubious waters. Underneath the pipe pumping out slurp into the swamp is a hidden R amongst the girders.
The pipe in question is coming out of the northeast side of the Slurpy Swamp factory, so make your way to the glowing lake of slurp in that area. Approach the supports under the pipe and the Fortnite hidden letter in the loading screen for Week 3 will appear, if you've beaten enough challenges to unlock it.
Week 4 Fortnite hidden letter in loading screen - T
After beating eight of the Week 4 Fortnite Dockyard Deal challenges, you'll receive a new loading screen showing the eponymous deal taking place at a dockyard. Cast your eyes up to the top right corner, and you'll see a hidden T perched atop a crane platform.
These cranes are located at, you guessed it, Dirty Docks, along the south side of that named location. Head over to this area and either land on top of the crane platform, or climb up the spiral stairs to reach it from ground level. The stairs leading up to the western crane will reveal the Fortnite hidden letter in the loading screen for Week 4, providing you've completed the relevant number of challenges first.
Week 5 Fortnite hidden letter in loading screen - N
After you finish off eight of the Fortnite The Lowdown challenges for Week 5, a fresh loading screen will be your reward showing a secret meeting going down. Up in the top left corner, larger than in previous weeks, you'll spot a hidden N above a barrel on a raised walkway.
If you don't recognise it, this location is one of the Fortnite EGO outposts just south of Holly Hedges. Go inside the hangar here then up the steps on the left to reach the upper walkway, and as you approach the yellow barrels the Fortnite hidden letter in the loading screen for Week 5 will appear, so long as you've finished enough of the challenges first.
Week 6 Fortnite hidden letter in loading screen - I
Once you've dealt with eight of the Fortnite Hide and Seek challenges from Week 6, you'll get a new loading screen as a prize which depicts Rippley hiding in a barn, while their (presumably evil) red counterpart Sludge searches for them. Up top on a raised wooden walkway, you should be able to see a hidden I peering through the guardrail.
Unsurprisingly, you'll find this barn over at Frenzy Farm, and the building you want is just northeast of the main farm house. Go into the big red barn, then work up the wooden walkways until you're above the large open entrance on the west side. Near a window on this upper walkway, the Fortnite hidden letter in the loading screen for Week 6 will appear, providing that you did enough challenges to unlock it.
