BILLBOARD: The billboard can be found at Misty Meadows

Slone wants players to disable Alien Billboards popping up across the island.

These billboards are for Meowscle's Morsels cat food, but as players approach them, they will change to the word "SUBMIT."

Not the most subtle nod to the movie "They Live."

One such Alien Billboard is located on the southeast end of Misty Meadows.


On the paved road near the billboard is a Detector that players can pick up and use to disable the billboard.

To complete the challenge, players must disable two billboards in a single round of Fortnite.

The other locations have not been revealed yet, so check back once the challenge goes live on Wednesday, August 5 at 10 a.m. EST / 3 p.m. BST for more information.
