Fortnite Fortbytes are something new for the game, introducing a series of collectables to find throughout the season, instead of as part of a specific weekly Challenge.

These Fortbytes locations, when all are found, are teased to help decrypt a secret that'll become apparent as the season draws to a close. The good news is you can get started now, so it's not such a rush when the season ends.

What are Fortnite Fortbytes?

Fortbytes are 100 computer chips that will appear across the map for those that own the Battle Pass.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_1

At the start of the season, there are 18 to find, each requiring a different unlock method.

Some require you earn a certain about of XP, others for finishing a certain position within a match a set amount of times, while others require you visit areas of the map with specific skins - such as the Sentinel frozen island location.

Furthermore, there is one new Fortbyte added to the map each day.

As you find Fortbytes, a mysterious image will begin to be uncovered. As you collect more, you'll earn rewards and the tease of new secrets surrounding Season 9's story.

Additionally, finding a total of 90 Fortbytes will unlock this season's Utopia Battle Star skin.

Many will take a while, so don't worry if you don't unlock them right away. That said, as with the loading screens and other objects in Fortnite, once Season 9 is over, the Fortbytes are gone for good, so the sooner you can work to unlock them, the better!

fortnite_fortbyte_6_location_3

The Fortbyte 6 Ice Cream Shop in the Desert location is located opposite the race track in the northern half of the desert.

fortnite_fortbyte_6_location_1

fortnite_fortbyte_6_location_2

Fortbyte 7 location: Accessible by using the Cuddle Up Emoticon inside a rocky umbrella

First, make sure you have unlocked and equipped the Cuddle Up Emoticon - it unlocks at Tier 8 as part of this season's Battle Pass.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_1

The Fortbyte 8 rocky umbrella location is found outside of a named location, but visible from the map as it's a formation in the ground.

Specifically, the rocky umbrella location just south of the Block.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_8

You'll want to drop in on the southern-most part from above, as it's above the door and the ground.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_9

Use the Cuddle Up Emoticon near the Fortbyte 7 location, and the Fortbyte is yours.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_10

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_4

Entering from the west side on the ground floor, you'll find a long room.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_5

Turn left as soon as you enter - don't go as far as leaving this room - and you'll find the Fortbyte 8 location above the mattress in the corner.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_6

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 13 location: Found at a location hidden within Loading Screen 2

You can head to this Fortbyte location without having unlocked the Utopia Loading Screen for Week 2 first.

To find Fortbyte 12, head to the desert area, specifically where the dinosaurs are surrounding the road running through it, just as the road bends.

fortnite_fortbyte_location___3_

Once here, just to the south, is a wooden building. Look behind the wooden building, and you'll find a portable toilet.

fortnite_fortbyte_location___7_
fortnite_fortbyte_location___5_

Approach the portable toilet, and you'll be prompted to pick up the Fortbyte 13 location.

fortnite_fortbyte_location___6_

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 16 location: Found in a desert house with too many chairs

You'll find Fortbyte 16 and the desert house with too many chairs in the settlement on the southern edge in the south-east area of the map.

fortnite_fortbyte_16_1

Find the southern and central-most building, which you'll notice is overflowing with chairs, to narrow down the location easier.

fortnite_fortbyte_16_2

Once inside, go into the corner room, where the Fortbyte 16 location is waiting.

fortnite_fortbyte_16_3

Fortbyte 17 location: Found inside a Wooden Fish Building location

The Wooden Fish Building location is in the north-east of the map, specifically in one of the four hot springs north-east of Lazy Lagoon.

fortnite_fortbyte_17_wooden_fish_building_1

Specifically, you need to look inside the 'tail' of the wooden fish.

fortnite_fortbyte_17_wooden_fish_building_2

Break it open with your axe, and the Fortbyte 17 location will be inside.

fortnite_fortbyte_17_wooden_fish_building_3

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 22 location: Accessible by using Rox Spray in an underpass location

First, make sure you have unlocked and equipped the Rox Spray - it unlocks at Tier 6 as part of this season's Battle Pass.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_2

Now it's time to find the Fortbyte 22 underpass location. You'll find this at Neo Tilted, the named location in the middle of the map.

Specifically, you'll have to go to the underpass in the south-west - where a road goes underneath another one - and to the west of the lorry against the wall is the Fortbyte 22 location.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_11

Standing here, use the Rox Spray to unlock the underpass Fortbyte.

fortnite_fortbyte_location_m20_7

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 24 location: Where to find the Fatal Fields Fortbyte location

The location of Fortbyte 24 is within a house within Fatal Fields.

fortnite_fortbyte_location___8_

Specifically, it's the house in the middle of the named location, just south of where the Slipstream runs through.

Once inside, head upstairs, and find the second door on the right.

fortnite_fortbyte_location___4_

Now check the far corner, next to the writing desk, where you'll find Fortbyte location 24.

fortnite_fortbyte_location___1_

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 36 location: Where to find the Sentinel frozen island Fortbyte location

The frozen island location referred to in Fortbyte 36 is to the south of the frozen area of the map in the south-west, specifically the west-most island.

Playing as Sentinel, visit the south edge of this island, where you'll see the Fortbyte location.

fortnite_sentinel_frozen_island_location_1
fortnite_sentinel_frozen_island_location_2

Pick it up, and the Sentinel frozen island location Fortbyte is yours!

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 41 location: Accessible by using Tomatohead Emoticon inside the Durrr Burger restaurant

First, make sure you have unlocked and equipped the Tomatohead Emoticon - it unlocks at Tier 3 as part of this season's Battle Pass.

fortnite_fortbyte_41_location_2

The Fortbyte 41 location is within the Durrr Burger restaurant, which is found in the south of Neo Tilted.

It's thankfully easy to spot, thanks to the giant holographic Durrr Burger mascot floating above it.

fortnite_fortbyte_41_location_1

The Fortbyte 41 location is on the lowest floor. The easiest way to get there is to land on the ground on the north side - not the platform above - where the three trees are lined up.

If you're done it successfully, you'll be next to a wide door.

fortnite_fortbyte_41_location_3
fortnite_fortbyte_41_location_4

Enter the door on your right, then turn right again, where Fortbyte 41 is located. Use the Tomatohead Emoticon and the Fortbyte is yours.

fortnite_fortbyte_41_location_5

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 47 location: Where to find the Reboot Van, pirate camp and crashed battlebus Fortbyte location

Fortbyte #47 is found between a Reboot Van, a pirate camp and a crashed battle bus, and it's one of the harder ones to track down if you don't know where to look from the off.

fortnite_reboot_van_pirate_camp_battlebus_fortbyte_47_location_1

Head to Quadrant E3 and go towards the north-east (top right) corner of that quadrant, into the woods.

fortnite_reboot_van_pirate_camp_battlebus_fortbyte_47_location_2

Fortbyte #47 is on the ground in the woods there. It's just into the woods from the nearby Slipstream, where two dirt paths cross.

fortnite_reboot_van_pirate_camp_battlebus_fortbyte_47_location_3

You don't have to do anything to make it accessible, so just head up to it and grab it and the Reboot Van, pirate camp and crashed battlebus Fortbyte location is solved!

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 55 location: Where to find the Haunted Hills Fortbyte location

Fortbyte #55 is found somewhere within Haunted Hills, and is thankfully pretty easy to spot.

fortnite_haunted_hills_fortbyte_location_1

Head to Haunted Hills by whatever means you fancy, in quadrant B2, and look for the small building just to the north of the main church-like one.

fortnite_haunted_hills_fortbyte_location_2

Head inside and round the corner, and it'll be there - next to where a chest often spawns.

fortnite_haunted_hills_fortbyte_location_3

Grab it, as usual, and that's Fortbyte #55, found within Haunted Hills, all done!

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 64 location: Accessible by Rox on top of Stunt Mountain

The Fortbyte 64 location can only be accessed by Rox, the skin available as part of purchasing the Season 9 Battle Pass.

You'll then want to find the Stunt Mountain location, which is the mountain more-or-less square in-between Snobby Shores, Pleasant Park and Neo Tilted.

fortnite_fortbyte_64_1

You know you're in the right place when you see the circle of tall trees and ramps on top of a mountain.

Land there, and provided you're playing as Rox, Fortbyte 64 is yours.

fortnite_fortbyte_64_2

Fortbyte 72 location: Found within Salty Springs

Fortbyte 72 is found within Salty Springs, the named location within the off-center of the map.

Specifically you need to land in the north-west of Salty Springs, where in the front of a house, you'll find a crashed red vehicle.

fortnite_fortbyte_72_1
fortnite_fortbyte_72_2

Destroy it with your axe, and you'll find the Fortbyte 72 location inside.

fortnite_fortbyte_72_3

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 81 location: Where to find the Fortbyte accessible in the daytime by a mountain top cactus wedge

Fortbyte #81 is found in the desert area of the map, specifically on top of a mountain with a 'cactus wedge' on it.

fortnite_fortbyte_daytime_mountain_top_cactus_wedge_1

Look for the circular mountain on the border between Quadrants I8 and I9.

fortnite_fortbyte_daytime_mountain_top_cactus_wedge_2

It's actually in a skeleton ribcage just by the cluster of cacti, but you might find it's inaccessible even when it looks like daytime.

fortnite_fortbyte_daytime_mountain_top_cactus_wedge_3

There's no trick to it though, you just have to make sure it's properly daytime - so no stars up in the sky, as if it were just turning from night to day or day to night - which might mean waiting in-game for a bit, or quitting out and trying again until it's the right time of day (we recommend Team Rumble or any currently live LTM for this so that you're not wasting yours or other people's time too much!)

fortnite_fortbyte_daytime_mountain_top_cactus_wedge_4

There's a suggestion from some that you need to destroy one or all of the nearby cacti to make it accessible, but that's not true: you just need to be there at the right time of day for it to work, so keep trying!

fortnite_fortbyte_daytime_mountain_top_cactus_wedge_5

Grab it when it is accessible, and that's Fortbyte 81, accessible during the daytime by a mountain top cactus wedge, all done!

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 82 location: How to solve the Pressure Plate Fortbyte Puzzle NW of The Block

Fortbyte #82 is found northwest of the Block - described as NW of the Block in-game - and requires you to solve a fairly simple Pressure Plate Puzzle. Note that you'll ideally need a squad of four players to get this done, before you dive in!

fortnite_fortbyte_pressure_plate_puzzle_solution_1

Look for the cluster of trees north-west of the Block, on the left hand side of quadrant D1.

fortnite_fortbyte_pressure_plate_puzzle_solution_2

Amongst those trees you'll see three pressure plates with footprints on them, and a currently unavailable Fortbyte.

fortnite_fortbyte_pressure_plate_puzzle_solution_3

The Fortbyte 82 Pressure Plate Puzzle solution is simple enough: you need four people playing together (in a squad or not, it doesn't matter).

Three players need to stand on the pressure plates, one on each, and then the fourth player can grab the Fortbyte. If any of you step off the pressure plate it'll become unavailable again, so if all four of you want to claim it, you need to take turns grabbing it one at a time.

fortnite_fortbyte_pressure_plate_puzzle_solution_4

Rotate through your party so you all get to grab it one at a time, and you're all sorted! This one in particular works well in large-team LTMs as well, we found, as your allies nearby will generally get the idea and help you out if you're short a player.

Jump back to Fortbytes list.

Fortbyte 92 location: Where to find the Accessible by Rock Love Spray lavafall Fortbyte location

Fortbyte #92 is found by a lavafall, and made accessbile by you using the Rock Love Spray nearby.

First, make sure you have the Rock Love Spray unlocked and equipped - it's unlocked as a free reward for reaching tier 2 of the Season 9 Battle Pass, whether you've bought it or not.

fortnite_rock_love_spray_lavafall_fortbyte_92_location_1

Head to the Pressure Plant from the south, and in front of it you'll see the highest lavafall (a "waterfall" made of lava...), with three crate containers on the ground nearby.

fortnite_rock_love_spray_lavafall_fortbyte_92_location_2
fortnite_rock_love_spray_lavafall_fortbyte_92_location_3

On a ledge just north of those, on the west (left) hand side of the lava, you'll see the Fortbyte - but you'll need to use the spray to make it accessible for you to claim.

fortnite_rock_love_spray_lavafall_fortbyte_92_location_4

Spray it on the nearby wall, and the Fortbyte will unlock for you to grab it as usual.

fortnite_rock_love_spray_lavafall_fortbyte_92_location_5

And that's Fortbyte #92, accessible by using the Rock Love Spray by a lavafall, all done!
