All of the information you’ll ever need about Fortbytes is right here in our Fortnite Fortbyte locations guide.
Fortbytes, a type of collectible computer chip, was introduced at the start of Season 9 and are only available to players who have purchased a Battle Pass.
Each day in Season 9 a new Fortbyte will become available. It’s a race against the clock to collect all 100 images and figure out what they mean, which could lead to special cosmetics or even a hint at Season 10.
Fortbytes can be located all over the map in various secret areas. A Spray or an Emote can be used in certain areas, but costumes may be required for some others. These Fortbyte criteria can only be met if you proceed through the Season 9 Battle Pass and gain access to these items.
In the event that this all seems a little overwhelming, we’ve put together a comprehensive tutorial on Fortbytes and how to find them. We’ll keep adding to this guide as more are found, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back often for the latest.
What is a “Fortbyte?”
New valuable computer chips called Fortbytes have been added to the game and there are a total of 100 to find.
A mysterious image will decrypt itself as you collect Fortbytes. A rare cosmetic reward could be yours if you collect all of them to reveal the image.
Battle Pass holders received a total of 18 Fortbytes on the first day of Season 9. Every day, a new Fortbyte will be made available.
Tasks are completed to gain Fortbytes. In order to complete some quests, you’ll need to have a certain amount of EXP or use a specific skin.
