Fortnite season 5 week 9 is here, and players have a new chance to earn some bonus XP from battle pass quests. If you're not busy still finishing up previous quests, this is a great way to boost your battle pass. Most of the other week 9 challenges involve the usual "deal a certain amount of damage," but one asks players to "find the crashed plane's black box."

That's easier said than done, though. So we've gone ahead and whipped up this guide to show you where to find the black box with ease, saving you some time and frustration.
