Week 3 of Fortnite Season 9 is here, which means it's time to reveal another Fortnite Utopia secret Battle Star location. Due to a change in the way these challenges work this season, only Fortnite Utopia loading screens for the odd numbered weeks will reveal secret Battle Star locations, with the even numbered weeks being used to solve Fortnite Fortbyte challenges which we have a separate guide for instead. If you're here for Fortnite Utopia secret Battle Star locations then we've got all the information you need, so read on to see exactly where you need to visit so you can pick up your hidden rewards.
If this is your first Fortnite rodeo, then allow us to explain how things work. For each week you complete all of the Fortnite Battle Pass Challenges, you'll also earn a Fortnite Utopia loading screen. Some of these loading screens hide clues that point you to a location on the island where secret Battle Stars can be found to help boost you up to the next Battle Pass tier.
Do bear in mind that unless you've completed the Fortnite Utopia Challenges for the required number of weeks and collected the loading screens containing the right clues, your secret Battle Stars will not appear in the locations showing in this guide - so don't try to skip ahead without beating the Weekly Challenges first or you'll just be wasting your time and leave disappointed.

Fortnite Utopia hidden Battle Stars location - 3 Weeks
Finish three weeks of the Utopia Challenges and this loading screen will be yours, featuring the Doggo skin surrounded by various dog pets (and a sneaky cat in the background). Examine the graffiti on the wall and you'll see a Battle Star on top of a stack of vehicles - if you're not familiar with this sight, it can be found just south of Junk Junction, so drop in toward that point of interest.
It shouldn't be hard to spot the stack of vehicles on the road south of Junk Junction, and if you want to cut to the chase then you can land directly on the top overturned car. If you arrive on foot, you can easily climb to the top by jumping your way up from the truck cab side.
Once you're on top of the overturned car, the hidden Battle Stars will appear for you to collect and jump up another Battle Pass Tier. From here you should have access to plenty of loot in Junk Junction, before moving on to your next location.
Fortnite Utopia hidden Battle Stars location - 1 Week
Kick off the Utopia Challenges for one week and you'll receive this loading screen, showing a female Raptor skin blasting away on a minigun. Take a closer look at the side of the weapon and you'll see four coordinates scribbled on the side - I5, I6, J5, J6. This points to an area on the map just south of Lonely Lodge, so head there.
As you glide in, aim for the stretch of road that is directly west of the ruined mansion, and keep an eye out for a bare patch of ground in the grass.
Approach this patch in the grass and the hidden Battle Stars will appear, ready for you to grab before maybe paying a visit to the new Mega Mall location nearby.
Fortnite Utopia Challenges rewards
Epic have continued to mix things up with how the rewards for the Utopia Challenges are dished out. You still receive a new loading screen for each week of challenges you complete, but now only the odd numbered weeks have a Stage 2 challenge available to hunt down hidden Battle Stars. It's likely the loading screens from the even numbered weeks will link in to the Fortnite Fortbytes Challenges instead, and the exclusive Utopia skin is also linked to the Fortbytes rather than Weekly Challenges. There's still a Season 9 banner to be had, showing a blimp hovering over the neon city, if you manage to beat all the Utopia Challenges for the complete 10 weeks during this season.
Fortnite Utopia Challenges Skin
As discussed above, unlocking the Utopia outfit involves collecting 90 of the 100 Fortbytes rather than completing Utopia or Weekly Challenges. The reward for doing this is the as yet unnamed mystery Utopia skin, which is of Legendary rarity and will likely arrive with an extra set of challenges to beat that will then unlock additional styles.
If you're looking to explore or get around the island fast, then here are all the locations of the Fortnite Ballers.
