Fortnite Fortbyte locations - #17 wooden fish building, #81 daytime cactus wedge

Today in the Fortbyte challenges, you are tasked with finding a wooden fish building in the hot springs. If you know where to look, and we will tell you where to look, then this should be an easy challenge to complete. New challenges unlock every day or so, requiring some specific conditions to unlock. There are a hundred in total and I will be going over all of them. Wish me luck.

Wish me luck because challenges that unlock every few days means I'm going to have to update this page a lot.

Now into its ninth season, Fortnite is a global juggernaut when it comes to just how popular it still is. There's still a lot to learn about not only getting that all-important "Victory Royale", but also the changes to the map as the seasons progress. For some beginner's tips, make sure you go to our main Fortnite guide hub for every single thing you need to know to get started. Alternatively, you can head back to our Fortnite week 6 challenges guide for an overview of all the weekly challenges for this Season in Fortnite.

Fortnite Fortbyte locations guide

This guide will contain all the unlockable locations for each of the Fortbytes in Season 9 and detail any locations for Fortbytes that can be obtained in-game.

Inside of the back fin of the wooden fish building in Fortnite's hot springs.

Fortbyte #17 - Wooden fish building location

Head for the hot springs towards the north-east of the map, namely the area at Grid Reference G2. It's the south-western spring that will house the wooden fish. Simply enter its back fin to find the next Fortbyte piece at water level.

Inside the art room of the big house in Fatal Fields, there is a Fortbyte next to the easel.

Fortbyte #24 - Fatal Fields location

You can either land on the island at Grid Reference F8 from the initial drop, or just head into the house manually. This is the largest house in the area and takes up the south-eastern part of the grid reference. When you enter, you'll hear the Fortbyte unlock, so head upstairs to the first floor. From there, head to the end of the hall and into the right-hand door that's furthest away from the stairs. This is the art room and you should see it nestled between the easel and the desk.

Dressed in the Sentinel skin, the furthest of the two frozen islands to the south-west of the map that has ziplines going to and from it, contains the Fortbyte.

Fortbyte #36 - Frozen Island location

For this one, you need to ensure you are wearing the Sentinel skin. This is one of the two skins that are unlocked by buying the Battle Pass (This costs 950 V-Bucks - the premium currency in the game). Equip it and jump into any regular match. You can either land on the island at Grid Reference B9/B10 from the initial drop, or use the nearby ziplines to make your way over. When you get there, head for the southern-most point of this tiny island and you should see a prompt saying that it is locked. Provided you did equip the Sentinel Skin, this will unlock for you to collect.

The Fortbyte found between the pirate camp, battle bus, and reboot van. It's in a forest.

Fortbyte #47 - Found Between Reboot Van, Pirate Camp, and Crashed Battlebus location

Grid Reference E3 leads to a forest just to the west of Lazy Lagoon. If you need a reference point to find this one, the Pirate Camp is on top of a hill just to the north of the Fortbyte, so from there, head south through to the next area. Head south and slightly to the west and eventually you'll come across a dense forest with the Fortbyte surrounded by trees.

Fortbyte location in Haunted Hills - north-eastern crypt in the main part of Haunted Hills.

Fortbyte #55 - Found in Haunted Hills

Head to Haunted Hills in Grid Reference B2. The north-eastern crypt in the main area, not the ruined church to the east of Haunted Hills, is where the Fortbyte is located. This requires no other things to unlock and is relatively easy to find.

The Fortbyte is in a pile of bones next to a collection of Cacti in a wedge shape on top of a mountain in the desert.

Fortbyte #81 - Accessible in the daytime near a mountain top cactus wedge

Head to Grid Reference I8 and make sure you head to the peak of the mountain to the south-east of Paradise Palms. When you get there, you'll see some cacti in a wedge shape and a pile of bones next to it. Provided it is currently daytime, or sunny in-game, then the Fortbyte piece will be available to collect.

The Pressure Plate puzzle for the Fortbyte near The Block.

Fortbyte #82 - Pressure Plate puzzle NW of The Block

This one is going to be a bit of a faff to organise. If you have a group of friends, a full squad to be precise, then three of you need to step on the three plates at Grid Reference D1, which has the small collection of trees near The Block.

The fourth member will then need to snag the Fortbyte puzzle piece. Play fair and take it in turns to step on the plate for the other players to grab the Fortbyte as well, because nobody likes that person who quits out of the game before everyone's grabbed their Fortbyte piece.

By spraying the Rock Love spray onto this wall next to a lavafall, you'll unlock the Fortbyte.

Fortbyte #92 - Rock Love Spray lavafall location

South of the Pressure Plant -at Grid Reference H4, the wall you need to spray is on the large island in the river of lava. You'll be able to see the Fortbyte hollowed out. If you have the Rock Love spray equipped, you'll be able to spray onto the wall behind it and the Fortbyte will materialise. To unlock the Rock Love spray, you just need to get to Season level 2. You don't even need to have purchased the Battle Pass to unlock it.
