Fortnite Fortbytes map and location guide

Find all 100 of Fortnite’s season 9 collectibles

Epic Games via Polygon

Since season 3, Fortnite has always had a few collectibles to send players searching for. But for season 9, Epic took collecting to a whole new level with Fortbytes. These small items are hidden all around the Fortnite map and sometimes have special requirements to meet before you can grab them. To start the season, Epic released just a few Fortbytes into the game and is adding one a day until all 100 are released near the end of season 9.

These collectibles are well hidden around Fortnite’s map, but to help make the search a little easier, we’ve put together a list of all the locations and ways to unlock each of season 9’s hidden Fortbytes.
