Week 1’s challenges for Season 8 are now live across all platforms, and if you manage to finish all of them, you’ll unlock the loading screen pictured above. This one features a crew of pirates aboard the giant shipped docked at Lazy Lagoon, one of the new areas introduced this season. Look closely at the background, however, and you’ll be able to spot a Battle Star atop one of the buildings on shore.
Lazy Lagoon can be found in the northern portion of the map, to the west of the giant volcano. Glide to the area at the start of a match and locate the building pictured in the loading screen. Make your way to the top of its tower and the Battle Star will appear, just as teased. Collect it and you’ll level your Battle Pass up by one tier. We’ve marked its location on the map below, and you can see exactly where you need to go in the video at the top of this guide.
As in previous seasons, there are a couple of caveats you need to keep in mind before you can get this Battle Star. It won’t appear on the island unless you’ve completed enough challenges and unlocked the aforementioned loading screen, so you can’t simply go to the right area and expect to collect it unless you’ve put in all the necessary work.
Here’s the Week 1 loading screen for Season 8:
