Ship It! Express drones have been hacked in Fortnite’s Chapter 5 Season 1’s Winterfest event. For the second day of the “Ship It! Express Snapshot” quest, the first stage is to “Destroy hacked Ship It! Express drones at hot spots.”

Our Fortnite Winterfest guide will tell you where to find hacked drone hotspots.


Where to find hacked drone hot spots in Fortnite

When you start tracking the “Ship It! Express Snapshot” quest that asks you to find hacked drone hot spots, the usual pins won’t appear on your map. A couple POI names will be gold, though. Those are your hot spots — along with the main Ship It! Express location.

There are two POI hot spots for hacked drones: Ritzy Riviera in the northwest and Hazy Hillside in the southeast. You’ll also find a lot of drones around the Ship It! Express building to the east of Pleasant Piazza. Any of the drones you see there are hacked, so just shoot down any you see.

All that you have to do is get to one of those locations and shoot down three drones. If you run out of drones at one location, head to the next closest to look for more.
