Fortnite Season 8 Gets New Buried Treasure For Players To Hunt

Posted by at 4:37 pm on March 4, 2019


Fortnite Season 8 has only just begun, but a new item has already made its way into the game. But while most of the game’s new additions are designed to help you see off your opponents or move around the map, the latest arrival has a very different purpose.

The new item, which showed up in ‘Coming Soon’ section of the game’s login page, is called Buried Treasure. Somewhat unsurprisingly, it’s a pirate-themed treasure map, with an X marking the location of hidden loot on a simple drawing of the Fortnite Island.

Once you’ve found a map, you’ll be directed to the treasure, although it’s not clear exactly how the item will work. It’s possible that the new weapon will direct each player to their own reward, but it’s more likely that everyone will be competing for the same loot.

A lot of this info has been previously hinted at by Epic. Both Buried Treasure and those new chests appeared in Fortnite’s Season 8 cinematic trailer, and the chest has also shown up at both The Block and in the Season 8 loading screen.
