Brand new Fortbyte locations are dropping every 24 hours! Over the course of Season 9 you’ll be seeing a lot more Fortbyte challenges, as this set of 100 tough tasks gradually unveils the Uptopia skin across the coming weeks. What will it look like? Nobody knows for certain, but it’s going to be a lot of fun decrypting the mystery.

Most of the Fortbyte challenges need no explaining, but there are a few secret locations that can be difficult to track down in the heat of a game – here’s where to go.
Accessible by skydiving through rings above Lazy Lagoon with the Vibrant Contrails equipped
First, head into your locker and make sure you’ve equipped the Vibrant Contrails. They’re the ones you get for reaching level 26 on the Battle Pass.
Now head into a match and wait until the Battle Bus is close to Lazy Lagoon. High in the air you’ll see a pink ring near the centre of Lazy Lagoon. Jump out of the bus and line up your character with the ring.
As you pass through one, another will appear, then another. Then when you’ve done about five, one will appear with Fortbyte 70 inside for you to skydive and collect.
Accessible by using Sunbird Spray on a Frozen Waterfall
To complete this one, make sure you equip the Sunbird spray – which you unlock at level 26 on the Battle Pass – then jump into a match.
Head to the Viking Village southeast of Snobby Shores and look for the frozen waterfall on the southern side.
At the bottom of the first ledge you’ll find the fortbtye, which you just have to spray with Sunbird to unlock!
Found inside a Stone Pig building
This giant stone pig can be found in the South of the map near Lucky Landing. Smash open a hole with your pickaxe to get your Fortbyte.
Found behind a historical diorama in an insurance building
Head to Neo Tilted for this Fortbyte. Go to the car park at the insurance building and look for the diorama of meteors falling and Kevin the Cube to find it.
Accessible by using the Bunker Basher Pickaxe to smash the rock at the highest point of the Volcano rim
Using the Bunker Basher Pickaxe, available from tier 38 of the Battle Pass, fly to the rim of the volcano and hit the boulder with your pickaxe to get your Fortbyte.
Found at a location hidden within the Week 4 loading screen
Head to Paradise Palms and go to the Keyboard King building to find this Fortbyte.
Found somewhere within map location J3
Head to the co-ordinate J3 and you’ll see a Fortbyte in the trees.
Found within an arcade
Head to the Mega Mall and head to the arcade on the second floor. A Fortbyte can be found beside the fridge filled with drinks.
Found in a filing cabinet inside an assassin’s basement on the desert coast.
It’s back to Paradise Palms again, this time to the East of the word Palms. Head into the grey house and use your pickaxe to break through the floor then smash open the filing cabinet to get your Fortbyte.
A Fortbyte can be found at the meteor crater overlook at Dusty Divot
Head to Dusty Divot and enter the building that overlooks the crater to find this Fortbyte.
Fortbyte can be found by the taco stand in the racetrack North of Paradise Palms
Head to the taco stand in Paradise Palms and check beside the cashier desk to find your Fortbyte.
Accessible with the Kyo Back Bling at the Northernmost point on the map
Head East then North of Junk Junction to find this section of the map. Have the Kyo backing equipped and you’ll see the Fortbyte beside the North sign.
Accessible by visiting the mountain top castle ruins at night
For this Fortbyte, visit the castle in Haunted Hills at night and head to the throne room. The Fortbyte can be found directly across from it in a small hallway.
Accessible by using Tomatohead Emote inside the Durr Burger restaurant
Head to the centre of Neo Tilted to find the Durr Burger restaurant. The Tomatohead emote is unlocked at level three in the Battle Pass, so go ahead and use it near the fryers to get the Fortbyte.
Found in a desert house with too many chairs
Head back to Paradise Palms for this Fortbyte and go to the house in the southernmost part of the area. You’ll find the Fortbyte beside a bed.
Awarded for completing six challenges from Week 3
Simply complete six challenges from the Week 3 playlist.
Accessible with Yay! Emote at an ice cream shop in the desert
Visit the ice cream parlour in the North of Paradise Palms. Get behind the counter and use the Yay! emote to get your Fortbyte.
Found within Salty Springs
Head over to the red truck on its side in Salty Springs to find the latest Fortbyte.
Use the “Cuddle Up” emote inside a Rocky Umbrella
You’re looking for a hole in the ground that’s shaped like an umbrella west of Lazy Lagoon or South of The Block. You’ll find number seven on a little ledge above the cave entrance, so climb up and use the Cuddle Up emote to get it.
Found within Junk Junction
Head to the main building in Junk Junction and you’ll find the Fortbyte on top of a mattress and some palettes.
Accessible by Rox on top of Stunt Mountain
Just like the very first location Fortbyte you have to equip a specific skin for this one, so head into your Locked and equip the tier 1 Battle Pass skin, Rox.
Stunt Mountain is over in the west of the map, south of Pleasant Park and northwest of Neo Tilted!
You’ll find the Fortbyte right on top, so it’s worthwhile to drop in here right from the start of the game.
Found inside Wooden Fish building
You can find this Fortbyte in the giant wooden fish in the geyser field to the north of Pressure Plant.
The actual Fortbyte itself is found in the tail of the fish, on its eastern side.
Accessible in the daytime near a Mountain Top Cactus Wedge
This is an interesting one, because it seems to be linked to the length of time that has elapsed during a match.
To find the Fortbyte itself, you need to go to the southeast of Paradise Palms and land on top of the mountain marked on the map below.
You can then see the Fortbyte in the skeleton at the southern edge of the platform.
If you go there right at the start of a game, the Fortbyte seems to be locked, but after about a minute or so has elapsed it unlocks.
Accessible by solving the pressure plate puzzle NW of The Block
To solve the pressure plate puzzle to the northwest of The Block, you will need a full squad of four players or three helpful strangers!
You can find the pressure plate puzzle next to the trees between map reference C1 and D1 in the top left corner of the map:
When you get there, three players will have to stand on the buttons you see on the floor:
You can then take turns for the 4th player to collect the Fortbyte, then take someone’s place on the pressure plate.
Found within Haunted Hills
The latest Fortbyte location is in the northeast of Haunted Hills!
Head over to the L-shaped building in the northeast of the area and search around the corner and you can collect it with no additional requirements.
Accessible by using Rock Love Spray near a lavafall
First off, before you can complete this one, you need to go into the locker and make sure you have the “Rock Love” spray equipped. You get it for reaching free tier 2 on the Season 9 Battle Pass.
Once that’s done, head to the lava flow running south out of Pressure Plant.
Down from the first drop, you’ll find the nearly invisible Fortbyte location. To collect it just use the Rock Love spray on top of it – you don’t need to spray anywhere special.
Found between a Reboot Van, Pirate Camp, and a Crashed Battlebus
This Fortbyte location is to the northwest of Lazy Lagoon. From the Pirate Ship, jump into the water and head west into the jungle.
You’ll find the Fortbyte in the centre of a clearing at the coordinates in the screenshot below:
Accessible by Sentinel on a frozen island
The Fortbyte that you’re going to have to go out of your way to find the most in this first drop is: “Accessible by Sentinel on a frozen island”.
To grab it, you first need to equip the Sentinel skin that you get from the first tier of the Season 9 Battle Pass.
Then drop into a match and head over to the extreme southwest of the Fortnite Map. Off the southern edge of the island you’ll see a couple of islands. On the westernmost island you’ll find the nearly invisible Fortbyte near the southern edge.
Walk over and interact with it to claim your prize.
Back in the menu, you’ll unlock the first square of the mysterious picture as your reward.
Location in Loading Screen 2
You don’t actually need to have unlocked Loading Screen 2 to grab this Fortbyte! (Cred to Daniel Myers in the comments!) Simply head to the south of Paradise Palms, near the pink dinosaur.
Just behind it, you’ll see a house with a portable toilet out back. Hit the portable toilet with your axe and you’ll be able to collect the elusive item.
Found within Fatal Fields
Over on the west side of Fatal Fields you’ll find a two storey house.
On the second floor in the room with a desk, you’ll find the Fortbyte in the corner.
