'Fortnite' Fortbytes Explained - All Collectible Locations & What They Are

Fortnite Season 9 introduces a new feature called Fortbytes, which are essentially an additional layer of collectible challenges that offer in-game rewards. Below, we'll explain how Fortbytes work, where to find them and what they mean for your game.

What are Fortbytes in Fortnite Battle Royale?

Fortbytes are a new type of collectible offered to owners of the Season 9 Battle Pass and all future Battle Passes. They're a series of 100 numbered chips that can be unlocked by completing specific challenge milestones or by visiting certain spots on the Battle Royale map with the correct Battle Pass skin. Fortbyte Challenges expire at the end of Season 9.

As of update 9.0 there are 18 Fortbytes available with at least one more being unlocked each day for the duration of the season. Seventeen of the 18 initial Fortbytes are tied to gameplay performance, but there is one location-based challenge Battle Pass owners can complete right now.
