Search where the magnifying glass sits on the Treasure Map loading screen

Your eyes had better be quick for this one as you’ll have to look at the map that’s on the loading screen to see where you’ll be able to get the Battle Star. The magnifying glass is hovering over location just southwest of Polar Peak. Head to that area and once you’re there, you’ll see the Battle Star icon show up.

Search chests at Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields

Searching for chests is not hard at all, but with every new weekly challenge for landing at a named location, you just have to beat everyone else to chests. Collect 7 of them in total at either Sunny Steps or Fatal Fields and the challenge will be completed.

Deal headshot damage to opponents

This challenge can be easy at times as long as you’re good with getting headshots. Just deal 500 damage to opponents and you’re golden.
